Good morning Angels fans! It is a great day isn’t it? Have some links!
Angels win again, their 3rd in a row, and second against Boston. Going for the sweep tomorrow!
It was pretty historic too, since it was only the 2nd time in modern baseball where a player had 3 leadoff homeruns in his first 8 games started in a season. And Mickey is the only one who did it legitimately, since the 2017 Astros cheated and so they (shouldn’t) count.
Mike Trout also tied Joe Dimaggio in Home Runs at 361, which is 19 squared. I would guess #400 would be around mid 2024, depending on health of course.
This game also means that the Angels rotation has pitched 15 straight shutout innings. That Ohtani was the last one to give up runs is really weird. Oh well, at least he can still hit the ball the furthest.
NBC fired their A’s announcer after he said the N word on air a while back. The debate on how accidental it was (He was allegedly trying to say Negro League Museum) was weighed on and NBC parted ways with him. He has not been happy of course, and tried to reason with the public through Twitter.
A’s and Las Vegas has been a ‘will they or won’t they?’ for years now, but maybe it will be announced today? Well, the whole money situation is a bit confusing but it looks like less from LV and Nevada than Oakland would give, but also a smaller investment overall?
Maybe this explains why the A’s pitching is so bad. Sandbagging a team to move them has been done plenty of times.
The Cubs have a player hit a home run in 5 straight games for the first time in the 21st century. Maybe check to see if he is clean…
Hey remember when we all wanted Arte to get a new SS? Pretty much all the free agent shortstops last year are having a worse season than Neto, with Trea Turner even apologizing for how much he has been underperforming. Think the boos got to him?
Jose Altuve got injured again. It is not serious, at least, that is what they want us to think!
