    Shohei Ohtani deadlifts unbelievable amount of weight, proving he's at full strength (Video)

    Angels slugger and superstar pitcher Shohei Ohtani dealt with both knee and elbow injuries toward the end of last season, but he appears to have fully recovered from both of those. We say that because there’s one weightlifting exercise that truly involves nearly every muscle in one’s body — with elbows and knees both playing a key part. In part, the knees — as well as one’s back — play a major role in load bearing. The deadlift, as it’s called, is a functional exercise that is a great

    By Jonathan Northrop, AngelsWin.com Columnist Best Angels Seasons by WAR Let’s face it: the Angels aren’t exactly a top tier franchise. For a brief time from 2002-09, they were one of the best franchises in MLB, but as far as their entire history goes—from 1961 to 2019—they’re pretty mediocre, not only in terms of postseason participation, but superstar talent. Consider that before Trout, only three players had surpassed 8 WAR in a season (Erstad, Glaus, DeCinces), only four 7 WAR (add

    What “If” Arte Went Big on This Year’s Draft

    By @Dave Saltzer, AngelsWin.com Senior Writer I’ve read the same articles that you have about the Angels cutting scouts prior to the draft, and frankly, have been rather upset by that decision. I think it’s a bit penny wise and dollar foolish. So, I’d like to present an alternative idea that I would implement if I ran the Angels. If it were my team, I’d see this year’s draft as a major opportunity to boost the team for the long term, and not a financial drain and would invest heavily i

  • Opt out questions

    I have some questions which I admit I haven't researched if indeed there are MLB rules for it. Can those who opt out return to the team at any time, that is, after the assumed time to make sure they have no Covid symptoms? If so, would that include the postseason? Lastly, in your opinion, would those who opt out, who haven't played, get a championship ring?

    OC Register: Angels’ Griffin Canning says his elbow feels ‘normal’ after injection

    ANAHEIM >> Griffin Canning is cautiously optimistic that he can be a success story for platelet-rich plasma treatments. Most of the pitchers who have tried similar biologic injections to avoid surgery for injuries have ended up merely postponing the procedures. In recent years with the Angels, Andrew Heaney, Shohei Ohtani and Garrett Richards all had Tommy John surgery after failing to get adequate results from the PRP. Canning, though, has now been throwing to hitters for about two mont

At least three other teams — the Oakland A’s, Houston Astros and Washington Nationals  — have had workouts delayed or canceled because of logistical issues with testing in the past 24 hours.

      #26: WAR per 162 games

      I’m saving my favorite one for the penultimate entry: WAR per 162 games played. This stat, which for some reason isn’t used by any of the statistical sites, measures quality: that is, how good a player is per 162 games played, measured by WAR. The formula is simple: Career WAR divided by 162 games. With the MLB and MLBPA officially put in place a 60-game regular season with the standard 10-team playoff, the Yankees (+450) and Dodgers (+375) both saw their odds drop in the latest World Series odds on SBD. A shorter season means increased volatility.


      Meaning, according to this metric, only Ruth has been a better per-game player. Considering the evolution of the game--especially the fact that Ruth only played seven other teams--this is as good as any  evidence that Trout has been, pound-for-pound—and thus far—arguably the greatest player in baseball history. Now of course he will go down as he declines, but he almost certainly will remain in the top 10.

      Among active players, he blows the competition away (although the above chart helps us re-appreciate just how good some of his contemporaries have been).

    • The Angels went 34-26 over a 60-game stretch in 2019
      You see where I'm going with this? This is proof that nearly every team has a good shot in 2020, including the Angels at cracking the postseason! 


      Despite all of the injuries to the pitching staff and key position players in 2019, a team without Ohtani pitching over the entire season and a burned out bullpen, the Angels finished among the leaders last season with the best record over a 60-game stretch. Which is exactly how many games they'll be playing in 2020. 

      You add in the Maddon over Ausmus factor as manager with playoff experience which essentially is what this season is, a long ass 60-game playoff tournament. Then include an Anthony Rendon talent to the roster, hot damn son! 

      I'm liking our chances if we get out of the gate strong. No team, that includes the Nationals, Astros, Yankees or Dodgers can afford a two-week slump or a terrible start. 

      Now on the flip side, the World Series Champion Washington Nationals started their first 60 games 27-33 and the Dodgers went 30-30 out of the gate. So it's imperative, no matter how good a roster is to fire on all cylinders right out of the starting gate. 

      But back to the point. These are just facts to illustrate how exciting the 2020 shortened season will be with every game being crucial in what will be a weird stay at home playoff type atmosphere. 
    • Burning Questions with regards to the 2020 Angels short-season
      Feel free to add on and respond, but here are some burning questions that come to mind with regards to the Angels 60-game season. 

      1. How many of the 60 games will Mike Trout play as his first child is to be born in August. 

      2. Will Jo Adell without a minor league season available make the team and start in RF? 

      3. Can our 1st round pick Reid Detmers (when signed) crack the rotation? 

      4. Since Ohtani has a short season and has already been medically cleared and throwing off the mound, should he be on a pitch and starts per week limit? 

      5. Griffin Canning has been cleared and throwing off the mound, how much can he contribute? Would it make sense to ease him back as a late inning guy? 

      6. Do we need a 6-man rotation now? 

      7. With an initial 29-man roster, which surprises make the team out of the gate? 

      8. Do you think the Angels will bunt and hit & run more since every game is like a Sunday NFL game? This season is no longer a marathon, but a sprint. 

      9. Can you see Eppler making any last minute deals before Sunday's deadline? 

      10. What are some big names that you can see the Angels trading a prospect away for on or by the Aug 31st trade deadline if they're in the thick of things?

      Throughout this pandemic, I’ve one heard one voice loud and clear. And that was the voice of my dad. His favorite poem was “If” by Rudyard Kipling. For those who are not familiar with it. It starts off with “If you can keep your head, when all about you/Are losing theirs and blaming it on you . . . “

I mean before all this Corona shit we had long forgotten about the SARS epidemic. I think we all knew about the terrible pollution, we even had a thread about how their dirty air was being blown across the ocean and polluting our
