Good Morning Angels fans! How are you this St. Patrick’s Day? Spring Training is halfway done, and Spring the season is almost here! Have some links as you wait for the game tonight!
Brandon Marsh was optioned to the minors. This is not a surprise given how he needs time to season and heal before his MLB debut, but doing so really makes it clear that Maddon wants the team to start strong.
The Angels also put Junior Guerra on the 40 man. He was with the Brewers and Sneks the last few seasons where he has been above average. So far he has looked the part and has had a 0 ERA this spring.
Shohei Ohtani has had a monster spring training, hitting one over the batters eye again yesterday. He is doing so well that Rotographs, the fantasy part of Fangraphs, are sold on him. You know people are legit when betters get involved in your favor. (He has 33/1 odds for MVP, just saying.)
Los Angeles Laker Lebron James is now part owner of the Red Sox, becoming the first Black part owner of the Red Sox. Right, well, that won’t go over well in LA.
Felix Hernandez is injured. Maybe it is a good thing the Angels didn’t get him, then again, maybe with the Angels he would have not gotten hurt somehow. Like a negative x a negative sort of way.
Miguel Cabrera praises his new manager AJ Hinch. You know, the former manager for the Astros when they cheated? Yeah, Miggy also doesn’t care that they cheated. Now I feel justified in hating him.
If Arte Moreno wants Lindor next year, it may be too late, as negotiations are ongoing for a contract extension between him and the Mets. Maybe if they all get extensions, Arte can throw his money at pitching!
So apparently, our own Perry the GM has family ties to the situation surrounding Robert Kennedy’s assassination. That is certainly something.
Ryan Braun may retire. Good riddance, not only was he a juicer, but lied about it and blamed the tester, who got into hot water for ‘tampering’. Also stole an MVP.
