Great patio/bar area out in right field at Goodyear Ballpark. Perfect way to enjoy an afternoon.
Angels at Guardians Gamethread
Wow. Fun comeback.
HOLY FREAKING CRAP THEY CAME BACK
Playoffs here we come!
The Angels magic is back???
Neto has a cannon.
Moniak continues to look good.
At this point, how do we not have Moniak as the 4th outfielder?
How do we not score on the Moniak blast off the wall?
Maybe bad defensive, perfectly placed ball….but lead runner should have scored
Who is playing in the WBC today, I don’t see the JJ schedule posted. Foul!
Canada just beat Columbia.
Canada up 5-0 in the 9th. Probably meaningless for the US.
Holder better not make the team
Holder did not hold anyone
Waiver wire trash. He is pitching now just to give the outfielders exercise and daily reps.
Hard to give them exercise if he walks everyone
when the announcers start talking about stuff other than what’s going on in the ballgame it’s because they don’t know how to make the ballgame the story.
I absolutely hate it when a homerun “interrupts” their idle chatter.
I think that the faster game play will mean that announcers won’t be able to go off on their meandering stories that don’t have anything to do with baseball. But we will see.
Drury is going to start at 2B. He has the power.
Agree, not so sure about his defense there but the bat is more of a threat.
That’s how I look at it too. Trout, Shohei, Rendon, Drury, Ward, Walsh, Renfro, all hit with power. Scary if you are opposing us and make a mistake.
This bird can’t crow about how good he is.
Thaiss make the opening day roster, yes?
At this point I think yes. O’Hoppe hasn’t done anything bad this spring but he hasn’t done anything great, either.
Thaiss is out of options. Club gives him the backup job and lets O’Hoppe get a taste of AAA ball until an injury happens.
If MLB announces that in April the teams may carry one extra player, maybe they start with three catchers.
If they do, I’d lean towards Lamb taking that rosy spot.
Not a bad choice, I like Squid.
Would be nice, a left handed bat is good
Why so little Adell in the lineup lately? I read a week ago that Nevin said he would get plenty ABs with Trout gone.
Brett Phillips is at .080 for the spring. Surely I can do this in my head…8 for 100, 4 for 50, 2 for 25. I bet he’s 2 for 25.
yep, 2 for 25, an OPS of .428 which is even worse than his 2022 OPS of .466 and some still think he’s a good 4th OF option
Snowing yet on the mean streets of Big Bear GPB???
High winds and rain, it’s melting the snow fast and we have flooding. But it’s the million potholes, some can swallow i/2 of a wheel on P/U trucks. I think we may be done with the snow for now. It’s a mess up here.
Maybe some snow tomorrow on the back end of this (so they say) ….stay safe my friend.
I’m OK with more snow, but I am also over winter. In November we look out the window in anticipation for snow and when it arrives, we say “Oh look, it’s so pretty and nice.” By March we are thinking “No more of this shit!” 😄
How long have you lived up there? Is this the worst, by far, winter you’ve seen?
I have owned the cabin for 45 years. I have lived up here for 32 years, prior to this I lived in King Harbor, Redondo Beach. The worst I think was winter of !978-1979. Other bad seasons 82-83, 89-90, 93-94, 2011-2012. All years had storms that brought 6-8 feet with many other smaller storms. Always the worst events have the Pineapple Express involvement.
Meanwhile Moniak is quietly having a good spring.
yes. I’d prefer Mickey.
Unfortunately for both of them, Angels aren’t really known for turning bad hitters into good…. The opposite is true.
True but we did hire the swing guru who helped Ward and Phillips this off season.
Maybe we finally turn a guy around.
As he did last year in Philly before a bad injury
I sure as heck hope Silseth is just working on something.
Work in progress…they obviously are high on him. I’m Trusting PTP here.
I posted a link a week or so ago that he’s added a new pitch. So has Davidson.
