Sorry Folks! I had to prepare for a jury trial as if it will actually go forward today and I forgot to forward myself the links I found. Have a good Monday.

Does anyone know why we have had so many 6:38 PST starts at home this year?
What happened to 7:05?
I wondered the same thing.
I like it. Games are longer than they used to be, start them earlier.
Just something they were able to start last year and continue with this year.
I remember reading for years about fans wanting games to start a little earlier than 7 but everything from traffic to shadows were used as excuses.
Ouch for Dodgers
Knew that as soon as he threw the pitch, but sad to see it confirmed.
Based upon your description it wasn’t clear it was this serious. And of course, the Dodgers rightly did not want to speculate prior to the MRI results. Bummer for him personally.
No yeah, of course. I wasn’t implying anything, just that we have seen this so many times before.
Dodgers….but still sucks
LAT ran a story on Skaggs death. Scary paragraph:
“These individuals confirmed that Kay would provide 30-milligram oxycodone pills to [Skaggs] and that at times, Kay, [Skaggs], and others would refer to these pills as ‘blues’ or ‘blue boys’ because they were blue in color,” the affidavit said. “I also learned that Kay would distribute these pills to [Skaggs] and others in their place of employment and while they were working.”
“and others” “while they were working”
Well now, we need some answers.
That’s an ugly article
My fortunes of course. Q pitching tonight instead of Shohei. I hope he at least bats!
cheering words at MLB.com
“Ohtani would have been taking the mound for the fourth time this season. He’s 1-0 with a 3.29 ERA, 23 strikeouts and 13 walks in 13 2/3 innings in his first three starts.
Quintana is 0-2 with a 10.13 ERA, 19 strikeouts and 13 walks in 13 1/3 innings over four starts this season, his first with the Angels.”
Q makes any bad innings Shohei has had and makes them insignificant.
Margot and kiermaier are batting .500 against Q with 24 ABs…
My night is ruined
At least my kid won’t know the difference. Better make the intro fireworks, they may be the only ones we see
Oh man, i’d hate this so much more if I had tickets to the game.
At least he is batting.
Thanks for that update! Let’s hope the offense can step up against Glasnow
Minor Leagues start back up tomorrow, here is a link with an overview of some rule changes, etc.
What a monster month this will be. This team is hanging by a thread . I hope they end May .500. That would be HUGE success . Rays, Dodgers, Astros, Red Sox, Cleveland, then that double header, As, Rangers, As again. Yeah I could see us 5 below .500 at least
Yesterday was so frustrating. Today will be better….as far as us scoring runs. Any word on who’s pitching?
Really? You think it will be easier to score runs tonight?
Do you know how good Glasnow is ??
I know 1 is better than 0.
With a month in the books, I decided to try my hand at a new tagline for our 60th anniversary season.
“The Los Angeles Angels of Southern California: Delivering middlebrow baseball entertainment since whenever.”
What do you all think?
I like it.
Middlebrow? I’m leaning toward lowbrow. Or maybe Mid to lowbrow baseball?
My suggestion is: . . . building character since 1961.”
Jesus Luzardo goes on the DL/IL
How TF do you break a bone playing a frickin’ VIDEO GAME????
You break your finger by hitting it against a desk or table because your Fortnite partner didn’t cover you and your were killed, so you lost the game/tournament/whatever. I never heard of anyone breaking a finger playing Pac-Man, or Centipede, or Galaxa.
Today’s match up against The Rays has all the hype you would expect in a match up between a AL East team in 4th place in their division v. an AL West team in 4th place in their division.
May the Fourth be with them.
This would be good for tmw if they stay in respective places
How about each MLB teams MVP for the first month of baseball.
What type of jury trial?
“I am a self employed intellectual property and civil litigation attorney in Pasadena, California” I’ll go out on a limb and guess it’s not a murder trial.
That’s a good guess!
Mike Trout article:
I forgot that ESPN had paywalled pretty much anything. They have some good stuff (like this Passan one seems good), but if I had to choose between The Athletic and ESPN (or others like SI, etc.), I would choose The Athletic 100 out of 100.
Agree. Athletic has a flock of good writers, and the national treasure named Joe Posnanski.
Espn+ comes with Hulu and Disney+
Couldn’t wait any longer and got tickets for tonight. Hope Shohei can pitch. Rather him than Q
Yes, that’s a huge selling point, and I eventually do anticipate getting that bundle.
However, I locked up Disney+ immediately when it came out, and I still use my brother’s student Hulu account that he gets with the student Spotify, so really it would be a standalone. When all that expires, I will consider getting the bundle.
I keep hearing that The Athletic might be in trouble. Tough to make this business model work.
Interesting. I would actually suffer through side ads for The Athletic (as long as they didn’t slow performance) if they retained everyone.
This is fun. AZ Diamondbacks helped a friend’s second date.
