Morning Angels fans. Yeah, it has been a rough August. Have some links in these dog days.
The Angels have been nad this August. Really bad. But at least O’hoppe is now at AAA? Yay?
How about Mike Trout? Still TBD, but he spoke about it.
With how desperately the Angels need anyone, that Daniel Murphy still didn’t get called up means he knows he is done and so he retired. He was trying to make a comeback in the Angels minor league system but has given up and hung it up.
As we are in the middle of August now, we can see who are the real contenders and who are not. The Sneks fell hard while the Mariners are making a run. But what is really odd is how the Padres suck despite being in the good corner. Maybe Manny cursed them.
So, who could have it worse than the Angels? Maybe the Rays as Wander Franco news gets worse and worse every day. If he really is done for his serial underage, uh ‘dating‘ girls that have come to light, he would have torpedo-ed a Rays season. How certain are the Rays that he won’t come back this year? They rushed their top SS prospect. And then there is a real possibility that the team may move. Oh and they have injuries piling on.
That’s heavy. Isn’t there anything lighter? Former MLB star Miguel Tejada has an arrest warrant? Yeesh.
Actual happier news. Infamously bad umpire Angel Hernandez loses his appeal on his discrimination case. He now legally sucks and MLB is not racist for keeping him out of big games.
As Hawaii deals with fires, former MLB star Shane Victorino is doing something about it.
