Due to the limited travel in 2020, this week makes the first real East Coast swing for the Angels since 2019. Two stops along the way with no rest day then home for Baltimore.
Our most famous East Coaster is Mike Trout but it has been a week since his last medical update. The silence, combined with the Angels medical staff, is concerning.
Not being on the field doesn’t stop Mike from bringing people joy, though. A lady found an autographed Mike Trout rookie card in a storage unit. Estimated value is $10,000.
Having a few decent trade chips and a record below .500 makes you wonder. Will the Angels be buyers or sellers at the trade deadline?
The Angels first stop on this trip is Tampa Bay where wunderkid Wander Franco is already impressing fans and players.
As if Oakland needed to get better, Chris Bassit has a new, more effective pitch.
Both Oakland and the Angels are eyeing new stadiums in the foreseeable future. But does the sale of the Big A to Arte Moreno violate a state law? Considering we have about 8 billion laws everything probably violates one. But this is definitely worth monitoring.
If you’ve watched Vanderbilt in the College World Series you’ve had a treat. Last weekend’s game vs. Arizona was incredible and just Wednesday the Commodores had a dramatic win to save their season.
Sorry the links aren’t longer but business is picking up and I’m gasping for air. Enjoy all the baseball this weekend (and what should be an entertaining fight on ESPN Saturday night) and let me know what I missed.
