Last couple of days been volunteering at Church, so I check the box score and JUp and Suzuki hit HR’s, Wow. 9 HRs in two days, wind must be blowing out.

Jose Rojas es en Fuego. How do you ignore that bat?

He’s become odd man out, forgotten one….Wish he and the Plumber could find a “magic glove” somewhere.

Ward, Rojas, Stefanic, Rengifo……….All of them are a defensive liability,
It’s Too bad

Actually Duffy’s DRS numbers at second in a very small sample size are excellent but he hasn’t gotten very many innings there this spring. I think the best OVERALL line up to start season for this roster should be Fletch at short and the Duffman at second.

He looks fine at third base and his time I’ve seen him at second have been uneventful. Not sure what they are looking at. Who exactly is the defensive wiz backup players that the Angels Have on their 40 man? Captain Jack? Velazquez ?

I wonder how is outfield work is . Could he evolve into a super utility player like the Angels are trying to do with Taylor Ward? Maybe a super utility platoon with Jose Rojas?

Capt. Jack is decent at best and in his career in both minors and Majors Velaquez has been below par with the leather.

Bard must be really pissed off walking Stefanic after all that.

The plumber with the unassisted unclogging of the base paths. Well done.

Well it looks like Jose Marte may have screwed the pooch on bullpen spot no. 9 today. I think that now leaves Andrew Wantz, Jimmy Herget & Oliver Ortega fighting for the final spot. All have options

Cheap Arte probably wouldn’t have given him a replacement set if he had given the kid his shoes.

This inning is turning out to be pretty cool (except for Trout popping up).

Seems like these have been pretty frequent!

BLITZ

And Reed in the back
Said, “Everyone attack!”
And it turned into a Halo Blitz!
And Maddon in the corner
Said, “Boys I gotta warn ya,
It’ll turn into a Halo Blitz!”
Halo Blitz…. Halo Blitz…
Halo Blitz…. Halo Blitz…
It’s, it’s a Halo Blitz!
IT’S A HALO BLITZ!!!!

baffles me why peeps want to jettison J-Up in favor of two rookies that haven’t really done much yet.

i love Marsh/Jo as much as anyone but J-Up is a better ballplayer right now and has much more experience

And it’s his free agent year. Last chance in his career to get a multiyear contract

Streaky hitter, liability in the OF and hits his homers when the game is not on the line. But I like Upton.

I had such a ton of respect for him after Skaggs died. Heaney too. All of them, of course, but especially those two.

funny how one day we can hit, the next not, or vice versa

seems there’s a correlation to who is in the line-up that day.

our A-Team does well if they are all together, but if you remove a Shohei or a Trout, its a big drop off.

Why the vast improvement? was there some truth to the stories that he was tipping his pitches when he first came up?
