Our glorious GM will be addressing the media over the sudden DFA of Albert Pujols. Expect no real answers, especially as none of us at CtPG are there to ask. AM 830. Discuss here.
I may be gone, but my impact will definitely be LONG TERM!! 😫 😥
Hahahhaha. … Rays suck. Finally a break
Fletcher – prior to 2021 … Hardest man to strikeout in baseball
Fletcher 2021 – easiest guy to strikeout in baseball
thread fails. i’m getting old dammit. these were supposed to be in the gamthread.
Tonight’s game is only 40 mins away and still no lineup posted for the Angels.
Up now. Fletch, Ohtani, Trout, Walsh, Iglesias, Ward (RF), Suzuki, Lagares (LF), Gosselin (3b)
Bottom third of order is pretty weak. Nobody over .217.
Also, Iglesias batting 5th does not inspire confidence…
I’d put the over/under for Angels runs at 2 and a half.
For those who don’t know that is pretty low☹️.
Detroit is the lowest in the majors at 2.97 per game. Angels are now 14th at 4.55.
Yes, but that 4.55 was established mostly with both Rendon and Upton in the lineup and no Gosselin or Lagares, lol.
also “6:38” so 6:42 or so
I’m so glad he was DFA’d and not traded like Vernon Wells to the Yankees or Hamilton back to the Rangers. He’s going to have to realize your skills at baseball are so bad now Albert that NO ONE WANTS YOU FOR THE LEAGUE MINIMUM.
So C-Rod is back on the IR?
I haven’t seen it yet, officially. Also don’t know who replaces Albert.
And Pujols DFA. So we have two roster moves before lineup is release tonight?
Three. Stassi is also on concussion list
Oh wow. We’re going deep to the well now
NOT VERNON WELLS
the start of the minor league season complicates things. Is there still a taxi squad?
That’s a good question actually. Will see if I can flag down one of the beat writers.
Also, SLC is so decimated (by the big league club) that for their OPENING DAY, they don’t have enough players to have a DH, and Barría is hitting for himself.
The SLC roster claims they are only carrying 3 outfielders
I have no idea what’s going on down there! Francisco Arcia is playing 1B!
are the beat writers taxi drivers? You’re gonna flag them down? 😀
Yes, it seems the taxi squad still exists. AAA capacity is theoretically expanded to 28 to account for these players when the Angels are on the road. As the Angels are not on the road until Monday, I don’t think the org has filled out the AAA roster yet.
Edit: 28 active, 33 at all times
Time to line up the O.R.
Don’t forget this slight at Angels fans:
I’ll be the first to admit as a whole, Angels fans are not the best. But it was a tacky look and by saying it publicly, not a good look.
So good riddance, Albert. Hope those “great fans” want you back in St. Louis so you can ground into more double plays.
Yeah… that was bad.
Summary: Guy who got a quarter billion dollars felt like the organization hadn’t done enough for him personally in his pursuit of more counting stats.
Some of these players today I just don’t have any respect for. They make way too much money and their mouths never shut up.
Ohtani batting tonight
A guess we have to wait for the pregame ti see anything
CRod to the IL
Stassi to concussion IL
Stassi might have gotten in the way of Puljos right cross when being told by Joe he is not in the starting line-up.
Stassi’s head met the same fate as Jerry’s iPads.
great, just great
These young hard throwers, the arm injuries are so prevalent. We’ll miss CRod big time.
dang, finally hit the stream and heard “well there you have it” as the thing ended.
AHHHHHHHHHH Lodge in my cochlea.
Pujols is a big enough name to be on TV
yeah this was a shock
As posted below, you can listen here if you do not have a radio on you.
what station is this on?
AM 830. I provided link below
oh, that’s what that is! Thanks. Thanks also JHW
So 2 weeks… interesting
“it’s about the organization moving forward”
“No fight in Pujols.” LOL … I know … taken out of context, but funny by itself.
Rosenthal lmfaooooo “did he fight you”
ah, that’s “bowtie?” 😀
