Good morning Angels fans! Game is in a few hours, so quickly, read the links!
Angels lost to the Braves yesterday, in part due to the lack of RISP hitting. They really need to stop failing at this timely hitting thing.
The Angels made 1 last move at the deadline, getting a RP from the Mets. Only had to give up the bullfrog, Jeremiah Jackson. Yeah, he better be good.
And the likely reason why Perry made that trade is that Sam Bachman has been moved to the 60 day IL. We really could have used him last night.
Oh and Jo Adell is on the 60 day IL now as well. Jordyn Adams has been brought up. Wonder how much he will play…
Lots of trades happened at the last moment. The most important being that Mr. Bush-league himself, Justin Verlander, is returning to the Astros. Astros emptied their farm for him and for the Mets to eat half of his salary.
The Mets are selling because they are looking to compete in 2025–2026. Part of how they are doing this is eating a ton of money to get top prospects from teams, something that may prove to be very, very dangerous.
Seriously, the Mets are eating more money than a lot of teams. 13 as a matter of fact.
Anyway, more trades happened, but one that did not was E-Rod to the Dodgers. That is because he did blocked it with his no trade clause. A clause no one involved thought to ask if he would waive it.
Full list of trades and deals and stuff at the deadline because it is a LOT. Too many to cover.
