LA Angels Thanksgiving News Crash

All right people. What do you give thanks for? I don’t have all that much to point to except for a talent nobody ever predicted for me (No. Not baseball writing.).

I love and I do art.

Chow Down! That’s something to be thankful for. If there’s anybody who has food insecurity, find my email or message me and I can bring some stuff within southern California today. Facebook considers me “CharlesSutton.125.” Say CtPG in your friend request. We’ll get you through the weekend with a nice full belly. Nobody here has to know! If you have no way to cook, tell me in our messages. I’ll bring a way to cook the stuff. I won’t have a turkey, frankly. If Ralphs is open tomorrow morning, I can buy one of those roasted chickens they have if they have them out that early. I have a coupon. I have frozen steaks, frozen fish fillets, Trader Joe’s carnitas, condiments, rice, rice noodles, marinara sauce (various etc.), corn tortillas, cheese, corn meal, grits, rice panko, canned veggies, fresh veggies, apples, instant milk, instant mashed potatoes, etc. I can bring some water if you don’t have that.

I admit it. I have food because I have felt food insecurity myself and we live in earthquake central. Talk to me about what you need. It won’t leave my room, or at least with your consent only to the members of the editorial board who are also willing to help. No bread, unfortunately, because I have celiac disease. (BYObread). I don’t have any eggs at the moment. I have corn husks, but I’m not entirely sure I have masa and I don’t currently have a proper steaming cauldron. (canned veggies include but not limited to: peas, beans, greens, artichokes, hearts of palm, pickled peppers (various), spinach, pumpkin, giardiniera, pickled onions, pimientos).

Members/families please except in extraordinary situations. I’m just a hoarder, not a nonprofit NGO. There are limits in other words.
That having been said, have a few links:

Does anybody want to see a Perry Piece today? We have a fan post from Biggiswrth all racked up and ready to go. Say something in the comments. We can make it happen.

Free Agents

Patrick Murphy went to the Hokkaido Nippon Ham Fighters. No, they apparently don’t fight against ham, nor are they fighters who are made out of ham. Put your Romper Stompers on because Chadwick Tromp got himself a minor league deal. Eugenio Suarez got a job with the Diamondbacks. This may already have been reported. Not sure.

Trades

Eugenio Suarez went from the Mariners to the Diamondbacks. I guess Urias gets that job.

Coaches

John Gibbons got the Mets bench coach job. Sorry Phil. Better luck next time.

Happy Turkapalooza to all of you out there in the Halosphere! I’m home with the houndette and the microcat. Coming off a case of covid, and I just feel too crappy to visit the fam. Come to think of it, coughing like a tubercular walrus really doesn’t cheer up the dinner table.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I will be deep frying the turkey tomorrow, as that is when my wife’s side of the family can all get together. Meanwhile I will be doing handyman work. Hopefully this year I can get enough time to do a IIWP piece. It will have a Talking Heads theme.

Maybe Wise old Matt can finally fix him.

I’ll be interested to see what wise does away from the Angels organization.
Honestly, Perry seems like he he’s never really had a plan because it seems he has a new plan every year.

Agreed. But the coaching and instructional staff was also under constant turmoil under Billy too. Maybe Arte only meddles every other year?

I do think Perry has more of a concrete plan on the amatuer drafting and international signings. Now if they can only get their minor league development shit together maybe we can finally see some organizational consistency, (This may have something to do with the recent coaching hires) we might be back to legitimacy.

I’m thankful I still have a Los Angeles Angels team to root for, instead of Los Vegas or Portland Angels.

I am thankful for this community.

Seriously.

I was jobless, directionless, and bored when we started this website. Having graduated with my Bachelors in the Spring of 2019, I had a hard time finding a job. With still nothing in the fall, I applied to HH out of desperation for something as I was spending too much time there anyway arguing that I could do better.

Well, for some reason, Jessica accepted and I was almost immediately fired along with everyone else when Vox was cheap and I was invited to join in with Crashing the Pearly Gates.

It isn’t about the money, there is very little in this, it was about keeping myself sane. But, years later, I finally have another job, and was able to use my time here as proof I wasn’t completely wasting my time the last few years,

If Jessica didn’t accept me, if we just gave up after Vox screwed us over, if the community did not follow or dispersed, I don’t think I would have made it to today.

So thank you, Crashing the Pearly Gates, honestly.

We are so happy that you are here for sure, I for one and many others will agree with me that we love your work, and it is huge plus that you love being here. Also, glad you are getting so rich being here. 😂

Ditto and ditto. I have previously expressed my gratitude for CtPGers, editors and all posters. If it weren’t for you guys, I do not know if I would look forward to next year. Because of you, I decided to renew my expired driver’s license, car registration, passport, and get a haircut, take a shower everyday. Now, I am clean smelling and feel like I can face the world.

Regardless of where Shohei ends up, I would like to visit Anaheim and personally thank many of you next season.

Very thankful for this group of halo fans. I’ve always thought that that if I won mega lotto back in 2001 and bought the team, I would hire about a dozen of you to run it. Glad to share halo misery with a great community.

That’s funny. I have also fantasized about having enough money to buy the team and then reaching out to some on this site as a “kitchen cabinet” for input in decision making and real jobs if so desired.

Happy Thanksgiving all you gluttons! (And by glutton I mean fan of this team – glutton for punishment, not food.)

Remember, gluttony is a sin, but you can eat as much pie as you want, because the sin of pi is always 0.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone. Have a great day. I’ll be having Thanksgiving with my new grandson who showed up Monday. I’m thankful for my whole family as well and will also enjoy spending the day with some of them.

Happy Thanksgiving all.

I’m thankful for people like Charles who give a helping hand. I’m thankful for this group here.

Obviously I’m most thankful for my family and I’m loving spending today with them.

I put quite a bit of work into mine. I’d just ask if the amount of eyeballs on thanksgiving is there to read and comment on it. If in the past the traffic is here, then go for it!

Honestly, I’ll be home all day so I’ll be reading either before or after everyone is at my house for our gathering.
Tomorrow I’ll be out and about a lot more and less likely to read until late at night.

Happy Thanksgiving Charles. That’s incredibly nice of you to extend yourself that way for other people. Have a good one.

Re: the Angels, I’ll refrain from the low hanging fruit of comparing this team to a turkey, haha.
