Good morning Angels fans! How you today? Have some links!
Angels won their second in a row! 4 shutout innings by the bullpen and clutch hitting up and down the lineup means the Angels are 32-30 on June 7th.
It was Charlie Sheen’s 15th save, the most without a blown save to start a season since Percy in 2001. It is nice having a solid closer again.
He is not the only bullpen arm with a strong 2023, Devenski has not allowed a walk in his 15 games this season. Only the 2nd time an Angels pitcher has done that.
Anthony Rendon is back! Soto is sent down. Actually, this is a big deal, as non Rendon players hit better when he is in the lineup the last 3 years. Baseball is mental.
Tonight is Pride Night at Angel Stadium. If you did not know, it is because it wasn’t advertised anywhere on the Angels website or any of their email alerts/Twitter/TV.
What is on TV and such are the other giveaways, like the Christmas in June this weekend. Want an Ugly Sweater, slippers, or a youth Trout jersey? Come this weekend at the Big A! Wait, how is a Trout jersey Christmas themed? It isn’t even Christmas Mike Trout themed.
Jacob DeGrom is out for the season. Tommy John for a 2nd time. Which could also mean an internal brace. Yeesh. But the good news is that he is being paid. A lot. Which now can be even more since the Rangers have the option to have him for another year due to his injury.
Alek Manoah has been sent down to the minors to fix his everything. No, not AAA, Florida Complex League. That is the Rookie Ball level for the Blue Jays. Sure, it is because they have the most advanced technology to help fix the issues, but that has gotta sting.
Oh and Aaron Judge is going to the IL for injuring his toe after he broke the Dodgers’ wall. Said wall is now fixed and won’t break again (challenge).
A’s to Las Vegas has stalled as the Nevada legislature didn’t bother to even bring it up to a vote. This is their last session until 2025. Sure, there is a special session soon due to not getting a budget finished, but the A’s stadium funding bill will not be a part of that. That is because they get a special, SPECIAL session just for them. Oakland fans are in utter agony, so be nice to them for now.
Our thoughts on Philly may not be the most positive, but the owner is certainly someone to admire as he cares about winning much more than making money.
