Good morning Angels fans! Hope you are enjoying spring training so far! Here, have some links.
So apparently Mickey Callaway was known to be a slimeball all the way back in his Cleveland days. Looking the other way is sadly the norm rather than the exception.
As for why Mickey Callaway isn’t fired yet, they are still investigating. Sure, Arte can fire him now, but then he would have to pay for the salary. Besides, it is MLB that is investigating, not the Angels.
Angels pitching injuries are not news, they are a constant. Gerardo Reyes has a UCL sprain. I think we can use our frequency card to get a free surgery, right?
The Angels have 4 players out of options on the roster right now. Max Stassi, Mike Mayers, Franklin Barreto, and Jamie Barria(maybe. He may get an extra option but it is uncertain as of now.). I am not sure they will be claimed on waivers anyway.
Jared Walsh may actually be legit. He was a feature segment on MLB Tonight! Do I dare get hyped?
Former Marlins executive has told Yahoo that Albert Pujols is older than what is official. Another year, another Pujols is older article. You can make a drinking game out of this.
Hey Jake Odorizzi is still available. Still wants a 3 year deal and seems to be willing to wait for it.
Baseball Reference added more stats to the site! Average Exit Velocity Hard Hit Rate rOBA (BR version of wOBA) rBat+ (BR version of wRC+) Pulled Rate/Opposite Field Rate.
A nice article of what a top prospect was like 20 years ago. Things were the same, yet different.
AAA is delayed a month, could be more. Alternate sites will be used until then. AAA was meant to start in April, now won’t until May at earliest.
Kole Calhoun needs knee surgery. He will be out for some time. The former Angel’s timetable is unknown at this time.
Jose Alvarez to Giants. Could have used him, especially since he used to pitch here.
Be appreciative of FSW. The Braves will only get 6 Spring Training games televised, and fans were informed of that on Tuesday.
