LA Angels Monday News Crash: Angels Win One!

Hey! Almost all the links actually concern the Angels today! Welcome! The Angels finally got back into the win column yesterday. In related news, Shohei Ohtani’s bat is definitely in working order. He also played an inning in left field on Saturday while Anthony Bemboom pitched an inning of relief.  Currently, the Astros are striking a positive note about the injury to Jake Odorizzi (same link), but they are really still in wait-and-see mode.

 The Angels touched base with the Yankees in the off season concerning Aaron Judge.  It obviously went nowhere.  At least Judge knocks the ball back to the playing field side of the wall. 

The Angels made a much more serious run at Jake Odorizzi, though that obviously also did not pan out. 

Anthony Rendon is supposed to be back today or tomorrow. Meanwhile, the Angels designated Jack Mayfield for assignment to make room for the return of Josέ Suarez

Say it isn’t so!  The Orioles designated Wade LeBlanc for assignment

Finally, here is a gratuitous photo of Darin Erstad that Rex Fregosi took. I liked it so here it is.

Late breaking: After an enormous battle royale with pool noodles, a new “Josh” is coronated. Let us hope he upholds the name with appropriate *ahem* dignity.

Today’s game looks promising. Ohtani pitching and hitting. Both Trout and Rendon back in the lineup.

Excellent news, nice to bring a bazooka to a gun fight. We need to walk into this stadium like we own the place and take care of these guys.

Bally Sports app (just launched and auto updated on firestick) is definitely better than FSW. Maybe because they want you to become a gambler.

Never realized there could be so many Joshes joshing and joisting each other. It looks like a lot of fun.

Can any of those Joshes Pitch?

No controversy to me. I’ll certainly take a position player with a high hit tool over projecting a high-school arm. But would look hard at Leiter, Rocker or Madden if they were available.

This website had an interesting Angels’ Mount Rushmore. It chose Gene Autry, Nolan Ryan, Mike Scioscia, and Mike Trout.
