    As many of you know my grandson Kason was born with Dextro-Transposition of the Great Arteries or d-TGA which is a birth defect of the heart in which the two main arteries carrying blood out of the heart – the main pulmonary artery and the aorta – are switched in position, or “transposed.” Because a baby with this defect may need surgery or other procedures soon after birth, d-TGA is considered a critical congenital heart defect (CCHD). In a baby without a congenital heart defect, the right side of the heart pumps oxygen-poor blood from the heart to the lungs through the pulmonary artery. The left side of the heart pumps oxygen-rich blood to the rest of the body through the aorta. The aorta is usually behind the pulmonary artery. Kason came out of surgery healthy & healed, some three + weeks after he born on July 7th, 2019. My daughter, Trinity Richter wrote this song and performed it a year after birth at his birthday party. Here are the lyrics. A Heart Healed: Don’t be scared little one Don’t you cry son Hold on to my voice And keep holding on Your heart will strum on Like a beating drum And when you see the light And your mamas smile And your papas arms Hold on And when you feel the sun Pressing on your face And your holding someone’s hand Hold on Listen to this song Find the strength to carry on Fight this war son You’ll be okay Kason It’s been one year now I love to hear you laughing about The way you smile The way you love The way you healed Is what beauty is all about A heart healed Outdoor version Indoor version I'm so proud of my daughter. In addition to this song she wrote, she's got nine other originals that she wrote. She's gone from being the lead singer of an 80's/90's cover band since she was 12 to writing her own stuff now. She just picked up playing guitar a year ago and has really taken off over the past 4 months!

    I'm not sure how old you are, but in '94, Tony Gwynn was pretty damn close. Unfortunately, all that anyone remembers from that season is that Fred McGriff had to miss 48 games.

    SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19

    I think the presidents response to COVID has shown his ineptitude, inability to lead and why his ego is an issue. The WHO lied from the beginning and enabled China's lies which has resulted in more deaths than necessary. Had the WHO and China been open about all of this from the onset the world would have a few more months of research under their belt about the virus. I believe it was Hong Kong or South Korea who sent a team to China early on and they knew China was lying but had to work with the very limited access they were given and they used that to try and get ahead of it back home. No country or organization is perfect but I'm not going to lose sleep if the US is backing out of the WHO after their actions as far as COVID are concerned. I've also got no issue if we join the organization again or don't end up leaving in 2021 but I will if we don't hold the WHO accountable and put measures in place to ensure it doesn't happen again. China isn't playing by the same rules and they won't unless the rest of the world which includes organizations like the WHO force them to.

    I don’t actually buy when Maddon says he doesn’t know. I believe he can’t say. Teheran said Wednesday that he was hoping to get the test results back Wednesday or Thursday and be in Anaheim this weekend. Obviously that didn’t happen, but I have no idea if the test was positive or the results didn’t come back or he’s got to quarantine for some other reason. Maybe his test was negative but someone in his family tested positive and now he’s got to wait for another. We still really don’t know a lot about how this works until guys start showing up and telling us what happened in their owns words.

    Still no word on Julio Teheran

    Yo, dummies! "Teheran spoke with Enrique Rojas at ESPN Desportes, and said he’s still in Atlanta, after he and his family experienced coronavirus symptoms. Teheran is currently awaiting test results. “I was not feeling well, I had pain in my body, in my back, and we preferred not to take the risk. We are waiting for the results today or tomorrow and, if negative, I’ll travel to Los Angeles this weekend,” Teheran told Rojas, in Spanish."

    He is in his age 29 season and has a career 3.67 ERA. Not sure I would say final phase or lackluster.

    Except he is absolutely one of our best 5 starters. If I had to guess he was waiting for test results, then got the test results and he now has to be quarantined. I highly doubt Eppler and the front office are anything but hopeful he is pitching for the Angels soon.

    I'd rather they mic up the field so you hear the game and the players more than piped in fake noise.... Hearing player reactions and smack would be a lot more entertaining ...

    The WHO has made mistakes, but it's not in our best interests to just up and leave it like a petulant baby that won't shop at Costco anymore because they require masks. Our government has failed us, and monumentally so.

    in your count of 60, did you include Simmons, who will be a FA next year and probably should be benched for this season since he won't be re-signed?

    Possibly? For sure. Most likely? I dunno. He was hitting .423 in the second half and .475 in August when the season was called off. I was on a family vacation in San Diego in '93, and I asked my dad if we could go to a game at The Murph. It was a doubleheader and as we drove to the game we learned that Tony was only five hits away from 2000. I asked my dad if he thought we might see #2000. He said "It's unlikely." Sure enough, Tony got 5 hits on the evening. My point? Never underestimate Tony Gwynn. As I wrote in another thread a few months ago, there will never, ever be another non-Angel whom I like as much as I did Tony.

    With just 60 games we could see some whacky rate stats. This might be the one year in our lifetimes where a hitter actually has some sort of shot at .400.

    Don’t be an obtuse fuckwad just because. The US doesn’t have authority per se but definitely the influence that the big fat checks bring. Of course you know that but you just haven’t flexed your contrarian ass muscles on here lately. I guess you’re enjoying your vacation?

    Btw... All this talk seems premature. Dude went 7-25 with 13 Ks .vs the usual cupcake pitching they see in early ST this year. This after putting up a .676 OPS in SLC last year (striking out more than 30% of the time). Yes, he's mega talented but he didn't look like anyone about to break camp with a MLB team. This is his age 21 season, he's way ahead of the game development wise but again, not ready. In a perfect world the virus finally begins to relent and there's an AFL type situation where guys like Adell get actual development time vs more than the same 7 pitchers. It sucks, I genuinely think this is a bit of a lost season for hitters, you don't get as much out of facing the same guys over and over again. Anyway, I doubt the Angels would play any service time manipulation games, they didn't with Ohtani... But pretty much everything they have said to date is that Adell still has things to work on. If there's an argument to be made for bringing him up, great.... but there are enough performance based facts to question whether it's the best decision.

    I don't give a crap. I'm just glad to have some baseball. If the Angels end up winning, it will just be that much sweeter.
