Good morning Angels fans, enjoying the winning streak? Good, have some links!
The Angels beat Cleveland, again, and almost had a shutout… again. I am rather happy about this turn of events.
Not only was it a good win, but Patrick Sandoval has still refused to allow a run. It is the first time in Angels history that a starter has struck out 20 and had 3 straight scoreless starts to start a season.
Reading these links early? Good. You have a few hours left to buy this Ward Topps Card. If you want to.
Does hitting seem a bit down? Statistics show that yes, you are correct! Specifically, batted balls do not seem to be behaving right…
Wait a second, balls? Manfred admits that yes, the baseballs are different. AGAIN! Specifically, they are the dampened ones that was supposed to be used last year.
However, the meddling doesn’t fix the issue of the baseballs themselves having no grip. Bassitt calls MLB out on this.
Remember Michael Hermosillo? Angels OF prospect a few years back. Yeah, he is on the Cubs now and made a great catch.
Andrew McCutchen stole his 200th base. He now joins Mike Trout in the 200/200 club.
NBC is showing MLB on Peacock, their streaming service. However, unlike Apple, NBC is using real announcers, specifically, one from each team.
