Good morning Angels fans! How are you today? Have some final Spring Training links!
The Angels crushed the Dodgers last night. And by crushed I mean crushed, winning 13-5. Renfroe and Rengifo went back to back in a blowout win in a game that doesn’t matter.
Angels had an amazing spring, winning the Cactus League by winning percentage at .621! That is a 101 wins over a full season! Surely this means when games matter on Thursday, things will carry over, right? Right?
Speaking of, the Opening Day Roster is pretty much now set. Logan O’Hoppe will be the Opening Day catcher, something that was actually planned before the Stassi injury. And Tucker Davidson seems to be getting the 6th man spot in the rotation, but will be more of a bullpen guy.
And O’Hoppe isn’t the only hope of the future, as Neto looks amazing and is our SS of the future.
So how will the Angels do this year anyway? While our own staff predictions will come out later today, MLB Network has the Angels in the mid 80’s for wins.
Cubs going to do the same with their young players. That is less surprising.
Pirates seem to be trying to do the same. I am much more doubtful about this.
As things are changing on the field with new rules and whatnot, MLB is also changing things off the field, with new replay tech and more better-er marketing maybe.
Opening Day is tomorrow, so time to be bold. Like CBS is. Angels in the playoffs?! That IS bold.
