Baseball season ahoy! It’s official. Jose Rojas made the Angels opening day roster. This is the link to watch that spectacular play by Jo Adell in Saturday’s game. The Angels organization ranked seventh in this list of the values of MLB franchises. In this list of predictions for all the 2021 MLB awards, Mike Trout got votes for AL MVP naturally. Surprisingly Zachary Rymer voted for Shohei Ohtani to win the MVP. If Ohtani and Trout go 1-2 in AL MVP voting, Lookout Landing will probably erupt. Shohei Ohtani ranks as one of the biggest surprises this spring, at least for some people.
The Reds released Noe Ramirez and it looks like the Angels will get him back on a minor league deal. Mike Trout tweeted this photo of his little Angel. Put some eye black on him and he’s ready to go. Grrrr! The Angels are considered a possible landing spot for Carlos “Bang Bang” Correa. We are officially done with playing in Tempe for this year. We did not win that last game, but “We will win some games.”

It looks like the Cubs pulled a Jon Jay on Cameron Maybin. They released him and then re-signed him to a minor league deal. He’ll be at the alternate facility. The Brewers did the same thing to Brad Boxberger and Jordan Zimmerman. The Rangers did it to Nick Vincent. The race to the bottom is quite competitive. Matt Harvey will be on the Orioles opening day 40 man roster. Matt Harvey, for his part, claims he intends to be better than ever. All right! What the heck was this? In sad news, the Twins bench coach Mike Bell died of cancer at the age of 46.
