There have been times the last few years where the only thing that made Angels games even passable was Rojas and his commentary.   This one sucks.   Who is even out there in need of a job?

As a huge fan and good friend of Victor Rojas this is sad news. We're all really going to miss him from the booth.  But I get it. My priorities have taken a sharp turn ever since my grandson was

I truly hope Terry Smith does not slide over to the TV side of things.

Yep. I bet he's looking to move to a front office in some capacity. 

Almost forgot...

 

 

COOLOUT !

was my first thought when I heard the news.  He's got enough baseball experience to fit in somewhere.  

I could see the Halos offering him the opportunity to interview as they did out of courtesy so he could get some experience with the process

I'm sure most of the guys who end up being a GM or AGM etc. end up learning quite a bit from the interview process.

We had one good ball, and he had to park it where the sun don't shine on the first at bat of the first game.  Anyone still have that video?

Anyways, sad to see him go.  I really liked his announcing style.   And he was always good to us here on AW.com.

I liked him better when he was first hired. Interesting and decent at his craft. As the years wore on his schtick with Gubi grew tiresome. It was like there was a series of inside jokes known only to them and we were left out. I also did t like that there were too many times when there was silence from the booth for a couple of pitches. 
 

given my druthers, I’d prefer to keep Rojas and cut Gubi loose. I hope they hire wisely.

Some of us get good use out of our mlb.tv subscription.

Yep. I also agree with you @Lazorko Saves

I had a Mariners fan friend over yesterday who was also on the Victor Rojas fireside chat that we had last year and he watches a ton of baseball via MLB.tv and he said Victor Rojas was his favorite pbp announcer.

Doesn’t his wife have some fairly serious health issues or a condition? 

Might not mean anything is declining or worsening, but combined with the virus and perhaps a general baseball fatigue it was just time to move on and focus on family.

@jsnpritchett I will never forget your generosity that you bestowed upon the OC Miracle League when you purchased so many of those Oppo Taco shirts that went to the charity.

This was the video from that event that @BaseballMom, @Adam attended with @VictorRojas at the Miracle League field.

You're welcome, Chuck!  So much for being an "anonymous" donor!  😉

I'm sure that they do. I have gotten something out of every interview that I have ever participated in, even when I knew that I had no realistic shot at the position.

Victor will be missed. He was a reason to listen to broadcasts, even when the team wasn't good.
