This article is yet another of the endless stream of articles predicting the departure of Shohei Ohtani. The article says he won’t wish to stick with a “losing team” while disclosing right there in the article that the Angels were 25-23 for the season. Shohei is still making history on a daily basis. Perry Minasian says the mental lapses are uncharacteristic to the players we currently have and “their aptitude.” He said that he expects that to significantly improve. Does anybody think that any heads will roll?
The Dodgers snubbed the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence for their Pride Night so the Mayor of Anaheim invited them to the Angels Pride Night. (Please go easy on the politics.) Glen Kuiper was just fired for using that racial slur during an Athletics broadcast.
The Rangers just released veteran right-handed pitcher Jacob Barnes. The Dodgers selected the contract of their top prospect Bobby Miller. Byron Buxton has knee soreness. They are still evaluating him. Also in that link is a passage about Craig Kimbrel soon reaching 400 saves. The Royals designated Hunter Dozier for assignment. Reds pitcher Connor Overton will have exploratory elbow surgery.
Reds manager David Bell also got himself ejected from Sunday’s Reds/Yankees game. It was his second time in the series. Here is Max Muncy getting himself ejected from a different game. He got rung up and said something to the third base umpire on his way back to the dugout.
One of the Guardians just nailed a bird with a line drive.
Get a load of Baltimore’s new City Connect uniforms. What do you think?
