Good morning Angels fans! Ohayō! Have some links!
While USA vs Japan was the most watched baseball game yesterday, it wasn’t the only one. The Angels also played in split games. Splitting the team meant a split in outcome as Angels won vs Arizona, but lost vs Oakland.
Mike Trout will play in the next WBC in 2026. He is having fun.
Japan vs USA was watched by a ton of people. And they all saw Troutani front and center.
Trout got the first hit, a bloop double. USA did not score that inning.
Ohtani walked. Japan did not score that inning.
Trea Turner scored the first run for USA. Arte Moreno screams in angst.
Japan tied it up. Monster Home Run.
Yet another home run and Japan has the lead.
Schwarber cuts it to 3-2. Phillies doing their part.
It all came down to Trout vs Ohtani. 9th inning, USA down one.
The season is almost here, so it is time for Fangraphs positional rankings. We should make our own…
Catcher is not looking the best for the Angels.
1B looks even worse. Walsh isn’t thought highly of anymore, huh?
2B is also not good. Ummm, well, that isn’t ideal.
Hey, why worry about that when you can look at the giant video boards? Who has the biggest ones anyway?
As Baseball faces uncertainty here, the future of the sport is international. Well, maybe what happened with the WBC might get people to care more here.
