Good Morning Angels fans. Being bummed is a natural part of the fandom. Please drink responsibly and have some links.
Mike Trout is out 6-8 weeks with a calf strain. We cannot have nice things.
The Angels played yesterday, and lost despite the best efforts of everyone except for bad Heaney and Claudio. Who both blew it. No 3 game winning streak for the Angels.
Shohei Ohtani is a magical unicorn flying through the sky, as Brent puts it. He pitches tonight, so do not miss it!
Tony La Russa, former drunk driver, has had enough of unwritten rule breakers on his team. So much so that he applauds his player getting thrown at and has not stopped talking. This could cost him the clubhouse.
Mercedes for his part has dug in, which is good for him. Bauer has his back, because of course he had to get involved. A reliever for the White Sox has liked a negative tweet about La Russa, so there may be some more trouble in Chicago that we all saw coming. And Tim Anderson backs up Mercedes as well. And also Lance Lynn, seems like it is everyone vs TLR.
So after Kevin Pillar got drilled in the face, he tried to play the next game. Athletes amaze me sometimes.
Yelich is back. Again. Maybe he can stay healthy for more than 2 days this time.
The Rays join a long list of teams opening capacity up. Which, well, isn’t going to make much of a difference for them, but they are used to that.
Joey Gallo got trolled by his teammates. Nice harmless fun, that is a bit funny.
