LA Angels Thursday News Crash:

Here is another article partially about the Angels starting pitching deficiencies. Thor was great. Lorenzen and Sandoval both just started games the Angels won. Inertia will probably keep these articles coming, though. Writers need to write. In any event, just be happy if you are not Reds fans. Phil Castellini did apologize later about the things he sad concerning Reds fans.

This is the Angels walk off play against the Marlins last Tuesday.

The league and MLBPA decided to extend Trevor Bauer’s administrative leave to April 22. I wish they would just fish or cut bait on this guy.

Aaron Judge for $35 Million a year and another decade of inability to afford pitching? Sure. Why not?

Mauricio Dubon bunted for a base hit while the Giants were up by nine and the Padres apparently got their panties in a bunch. Too bad Verlander wasn’t pitching. It was a pretty good bunt. The ejection of Antoan Richardson after Steven Duggar stole a base with the score 10-1 was apparently due to his reaction to something Mike Shildt said. Richardson says the statement “reeked undertones of racism.” The two have cleared the air and appear to have moved on from the incident. Alex Cobb was the beneficiary of all those runs.

Wade is one of those guys that tries to make things happen, but just lacks the talent to execute.

I’m thinking Velazquez would have a better chance making contact with the ball by bringing his glove to the plate

Phew!!! Stranding Semien at third is a big win there. 14 pitches (with 2 Ks) is still not bad, not bad indeed.

hey at least Rojas didn’t make a 4-base error like Adell did in this park.
He kept it in the yard – that’s progress!!

I say unto you: Let this be a Game Thread, for the Mgt is lax.

And it is good. (So far: A Fat Kid jack, Marsh RBI single; MVP on the mound.)
