  1. The best part of this is it moves Fletcher back to 2nd base.

    SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19

    This is how I feel, too. I moved to Colorado from the San Gabriel Valley in 2019, but I have spent most of the pandemic near Santa Fe, New Mexico, as my parents live on several acres in the mountains a few miles outside of town. They are senior citizens and my father has cancer, so I want to be able to do all the shopping/driving for them. My brother died of cancer in 2019, so my parents are pretty much my only family left. I miss traveling, going to baseball games and bars/breweries, and seeing friends, but life could be a lot worse. As long as my family gets out of this pandemic safe a

  6. This is the kind of trade I was hoping Minasian would execute. Low cost defensive upgrade at SS while he sorts out the pitching. It didn't cost much in farm prospects, no one that looks to be an immediate impact was lost in the deal so if Iglesias is just a one year stopgap there is no damage to the overall prospect currency. I would say this is a good start to his tenure as GM.

  8. even if iglesias and rengifo hit the exact same offensive numbers, wouldn't iglesias at SS and fletcher at 2b be substantially defensively better than fletcher at SS and rengifo at 2b?

  9. A key thing is that acquiring Iglesis at 3.5mil effectively upgrades us defensively at two positions - SS, because Iglesias will play that over Fletcher, and 2B, because Fletcher gets to stay there. If we signed Wong, while he's great at 2B, Fletcher would have moved to SS, which would have been a downgrade. And it would have cost us more than acquiring Iglesias did.

  10. Pitcher List is a great fantasy baseball website with some very good analytical pieces. This one points to Walsh's cleaner, more compact swing as a root cause of his remarkable improvement, dramatically reducing strikeouts and driving up hard contact.

    This is the norm for Angel fans. By May 10th we know it’s already over but yet many fans still believe in them and maintain hope. It’s a waste of time but having hope isn’t necessarily a bad thing

    I just want Chuck to be held accountable for AO posting the Laker score. Azangle’s hospital bill wasn’t going to pay for itself.

    Blarg is right. You have to understand how appeals courts work. They review the evidence to make sure the law has been applied properly by the lower court. Basically no new evidence can be presented, they only interpret the law to the evidence already admitted. As no evidence was presented, they won’t have any choice but to uphold the lower court rulings. Larry, it’s over. Even with Drunkie and Cultie on the Supreme Court. It’s over.

  19. Minasian emphasized "run prevention" at his press conference many, many times. Having Fletcher remain at 2B, where he's fairly elite defensively, and having a very solid defensive SS come over is a great move. We have a great infield defense now, and I expect that he will acquire a strong defensive catcher, too.

  20. Stallings kinda reminds me of Chris Ellis. probably a bit overrated because no one has really seen much of him but at best he's a #5 and most likely a guy who doesn't do much.

  22. The Other Day On The Plane A man boards an airplane, and takes his seat. As he settles in, he glances up and sees the most beautiful woman boarding the plane. He soon realizes she is heading straight towards his seat. A wave of nervous anticipation washes over him. Lo and behold, she takes the seat right beside his. Anxious to strike up a conversation, he blurts out, “So where are you flying to today?” She turns and smiles, and says, “To the annual Nymphomaniac Convention, in Chicago.” He swallows hard, and is instantly crazed with excitement. Here’s the most gorgeous woman he ha

    What If

    It goes back further, with a chain of events impacting what came after. - Figgins, Lackey, and Vlad leave after 2009, ending Golden Era (2002-09). Of their replacements, on Matsui performs at a comparable level to the guy he replaced, and only the declined older version of Vlad. Wood and Kazmir are massive busts. - Angels blow it with Beltre, and then Tony Reagins panic-trades for Wells in Jan 2011 after disappointing 2010 season. - Jerry Dipoto signed as GM. - Arte's big splash: Albert and Wilson. - More disappointment, leading to another big splash: Josh Hamilton.

    This right here is on page two in the grifters handbook. Get people to feel sorry for you, convince them everyone has always been against you and out to get you. Convince them give to me or bail me out and it will help you. Ask him when his shithole businesses went bankrupt if it was his fault and he will tell you everyone was out to get me.

  30. I know it sucked for me getting my first layoff notice (from Sears Long Beach catalog dept) at the end of 1976. Took that frustration and got totally wasted with a friend on New Years Eve.

    You missed the most important one. Morales breaking his leg. Its very possible with Morales healthy, we wouldnt have targeted pujols. (Though I could have seen us still chasing carl crawford or jose reyes instead.... which would still have been ugly). But a healthy morales, and signing beltre would have been sooooo much different...

    Likewise Kevin. This year has really sucked in many ways. I’m thankful for family and friends (AW included), and for those who have been personally affected by this virus, who lost loved ones and friends, know that there are many who are keeping you in thought. Have a great holiday weekend everybody.
