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

What is this deadline?  I haven't heard about it.

How will the 60 game season impact the desire to resign Simmons?

If anything I think it’ll help us. Probably can get him for 3 years 55-60 million with a team option for a 4th year.

How do you guys feels about the new Stupid Extra Inning rule? after the 10th, the hitting team gets a guy on 2nd to start the inning of?

personally I understand the reason, due to the Pandemic, but I hope this stupid, and horrendous rule is kicked out of baseball after this season.

It's necessary because the chance of getting the covid increases dramatically once they hit extra innings.

So damn stupid.

It’s called the Cam Bedrosian rule.

I want to see it in action before passing Judgement.

1. 3 games is 5 percent of the season. That's like 8 games in a full season.  I hope all is well in the Trout household.

2. Jo Adell is on the 29-player roster or he must wait until next season.

3. Detmers would be an experiment. A 60-game season is no time for other experiments.

4. As an only-on-Sunday (or whatever other day) pitcher, Ohtani pitches maybe 9 times in 60 games. And if he sits the day before pitching, that's 41 or so DH games. Hope he avoids blisters and stubbed toes.

5. Who other than the coaches and med staff know if Canning is in game shape? Everyone will find out before August.

6. If Ohtani is only once a week, it's probably a rotation of six by default. They better all be decent. A 6-game losing streak is like a 16-game streak in baseball years.

7. Danged if I have any idea.

8. If the pitchers give up a lot of runs, the Angels better score every which way they can.

9. Doubt it.

10. Only four untested prospects in the Angels class of 2020. Don't see any going bye-bye for a 2-week stretch run reliever.

It's stupid if it's permanent.

He was never ever coming back.

Of course it’s my opinion Stradling. This medium was created to convey opinions and this is mine. 

The point is I didn’t think Eppler was going to resign Simmons and I don’t think Covid 19 has changed his plans - unless the FA market completely caves in and Simmons takes something like 1/$4M.

The problem with your statement was that it was written as if it was a fact that had already occured.

My opinion is there’s now a better chance of him coming back as his price (all prices) is going to come down.  If you can get Simmons for 3 years and $36-40 million you probably jump at it.

Maybe Simmons wants a lot more money and years. Maybe he’s listening to his agent. Maybe he wants to test the market. Maybe the Angels aren’t the perfect situation for him. Maybe he’s a head case and he’s not the perfect situation for the Angels.
