Gameday Thread: Angels @ Rangers (9/22/22 11am Pacific): Lorenzen on the mound, no Ohtani

O'Neal just referred to Lorenzen as a "young guy" pitching for his hometown team.  That's a very...generous description of him.

And I know there have been multiple articles about how much Lorenzen wants to be back with the Angels next year.  I'll say again that I really have no interest in seeing him back next year, unless it's for something like 2 years, $5M total and he's not guaranteed a starting slot.  Otherwise, I still firmly believe there are multiple guys on the current roster or in the minors who could produce similar or better results for the minimum salary.

On the Rangers feed they talked about Kole Calhoun's recent lack of playing time. They respect his mentor status but he is no longer part of their plans and want to see what their young players can do. 

I was sort of kidding on the other thread, saying I miss Calhoun.  He is not the answer, but I definitely wish him well.

The announcers also keep talking about how good Duffy is getting at 3B defense the more time he gets there.  The vast majority of his games in the majors have been as a 3B, so it's not like he has just been thrown out there with no experience.

On a 6-man rotation Lorenzen not bad at 5th or 6th man. Get him cheap 1 year 6 mill.

If you want a guy who'll go 5 innings and not strike out many guys, you can put Barria in the rotation as the last man.

Again, makes zero sense to bring Lorenzen back and promise him a starting role.
