  1. The Angels have named Matt Vasgersian TV play-by-play voice. Daron Sutton hired to back Vasgersian up when doing ESPN games.

  2. I could watch Fletch hit all day long. I love his approach and his ability to hit to right field. Its a thing of beauty

  6. It's great news. MV will be excellent. The return of Daron Sutton is the cherry on top. But I am still going to miss Victor.

  7. I have been, and always shall be, a huge Sutton fan. Seems weird he only did 2 seasons before.

  8. yea, I guess not. I'll be honest, my hit was not great, I was behind on a fastball and hit a ground ball with eyes between the first and second baseman. It might be the only at bat I remember. I also remember getting to the park and seeing a little white (I think it was white) Mercedes with a license plate that said Mr. 300. It was Don Sutton's car.

  9. Vasgersian has been my favorite play by play guy and, in my opinion, one of the best since his work with the Padres. This is a huge win for Angel fans

  11. THIS IS AMAZING NEWS! This was the guy I wanted to replace Victor Rojas after he resigned all along. I mean why wouldn't he? Mike Trout, Ohtani, Rendon, Joe Maddon, So. Cal guy. I'm pumped!

  13. Nothing. @Chuckster70 noticed him sitting near us with his wife and kid and I went over and asked him. The problem is that I was knelt down on the top step and I was not sober and also fat so when I tried to stand up I fell into the dude sitting in the next row. Good times.

  14. Now that we have Vasgersian and Sutton locked in for this season I can now go back to laughing at how bad Terry Smith and Mota are without getting nervous of them actually getting the play-by-play job

  19. I think we are seeing the impact of several things: 1. Continuity with Maddon, who is a progressive manager that has a lot of experience working with analytically-inclined FOs (Friedman for many years, then Epstein) 2. Minasian working in tandem with Maddon to help bring a blend of analytics and traditional scouting, and utilizing that information to help players perform better It seems to me that during the offseason, Minasian and Maddon likely reached out to a number of players and provided them with guidance as to how they could potentially improve. In terms of the players

  20. You know why you don't bother doing that with a Triumph Spitfire? It's not going to start anyway. You just wait until Spring and push it back into the garage.

  21. Longtime lurker, I made an account because this is crazy news, games will be more bearable to watch win or lose, also Sutton is even better imo. I realize that Matty V wants to cover Mike Trout before he loses that opportunity and he must see something in the team to have chosen us over the Dodgers, perhaps he also wants to cover some A's games (given he's an A's fan) but I think he's very non partial, given he does national games and will continue to do so.

  22. This really isn’t that big of a surprise considering that the last guy (Victor) was an MLB Network guy, and had National recognition.

  23. Same here. Then I'd climb back down and play the back 9.

  24. And Sutton too? Good lord, what a day for angels baseball. And mota is fine as an occasional third wheel. This is the best day for the angels since signing Ohtani. Well done, college beer buddy of Arte's.

  25. Awesome hires!!!!!!!!!! Sidenote: I tried out for being a sports trivia show contestant in 1998 for a show called Ultimate Fan League, but just missed getting on the show. MV was the host, assisted by Lisa Guerrero.

  28. I mean he was hired pretty close to the start of the season. Maybe he had already committed to a lot of games for ESPN and MLB Network thinking that he wasn't going to be a team's regular PBP announcer.

  29. Holy shit. This dude is the Mike Trout of current PBP announcers imo. I'm shocked.

  36. Like others have said, this move is really exciting! Can't wait for the season to start! Maybe it's just recency bias, but I'm feeling more amped up for this season than any other in recent years.

  37. Super pumped on this move. Adding Sutton as well is just the icing on the cake.

  38. Yeah, I noticed that as well. I'm wondering if he'll do some games on the radio side or maybe he and Terry Smith will split radio duties like Rory and Terry did, with Langston joining Sutton and Smith for a 3-man booth. Or, perhaps he'll just do some hosting on the pre and post game shows.
