Furloughed, not fired or laid off.  Speaking to a member of the Yankees front office, they tell me the Angels doing it this way may mean some of those employees end up ahead due to the in increas

Considering most other teams are making every effort to not furlough employees, it makes Angels management look particularly cheap. 

It may be a good financial move, but it’s a sign of being a shitty human being. 

As Ken says, it’s also a bad baseball move for a number of reasons. 

Arte agreeing to buy the stadium and land right before the Pandemic hit probably factored into his furlough decision.

It is funny that they’re doing it a few days before the draft lol.  Why not just keep them around for the draft ?  Seems like that might be helpful.  Anyway, probably doesn’t matter much to the guys getting furloughed I guess. 

Furloughed, not fired or laid off. 

Speaking to a member of the Yankees front office, they tell me the Angels doing it this way may mean some of those employees end up ahead due to the in increased unemployment pay .vs forcing the 25-40% pay cuts that some teams have placed on employees across the board.

It's interesting to see Rosenthal play this the way he has if only because some teams are concerned this might work in the Angels favor among some lower paid scouts.

No, I know they aren’t getting shit canned.  I was thinking that about the unemployment as well.  But I do wonder about why they wouldn’t wait until after the draft.  What do I know.

Yep....  I get it.

We will see how cheap Arte went if the draft comes and goes and they end up signing less than 40 or so players.  This situation is one they should take advantage of to try to add guys ... If they dont.... Stupid.

To be honest I believe Arte WILL cheap out, Claude brings up the stadium issue and I agree that it will likely be a factor.

Not taking advantage this year will be like sitting on their hands after signing Baldoquin when the rules were changing.

Nobody here wants to hear that, pal. 

Now move along.

@Inside Pitch what are area scouts doing right now when no baseball is being played?  Are they the scouts that would watch private work outs?  Or are private workouts attended by guys higher up the food chain?  Could they be the ones counted on to create relationships with the players in order to entice them to sign for the $20k, or is that ground work already laid?

The news comes weeks before the 2020 MLB draft, which will be held virtually from June 10-11. Scouting director Matt Swanson will run the team's draft alongside five regional supervisors and four cross-checkers, but that nine-person group will be furloughed on June 16, according to Rosenthal.

Its contributions like this that interfere with the negative narratives.  Can you be more proactive and post earlier in the thread next time?

They may have waited until they had a draft plan and subsequent after draft plan developed.  I am assuming, with no inside knowledge, that once the plan was in place, the Angels believed that they could help their employees more by furloughing them instead of cutting their wages.

I posted this in another thread, but furloughing employees does give them the option to collect unemployment and retain their job security. My older brother is in a senior management position at an entertainment company. His whole company was furloughed, and he's been able to collect 90% of his pay through unemployment. He said that the employees who work for him are actually collecting more than their salary because of the increased unemployment.

Hopefully I'm not just being biased, and the Angels do treat these employees fairly when the time comes for reactivating their jobs. But furloughs are better than layoffs.
