  1. Thanks
    GregAlso got a reaction from Jeff Fletcher in Poor Barry Bonds   
    If you haven’t read the athletic piece it is really good and much more about hitting than about a poor me Barry Bonds. Baggerly is very even handed about the legacy thing. it is subscription only but honestly the Athletic is completely worth it. I don’t have many subs, but for baseball it is Athletic and OC Register(really mostly just @Jeff Fletcher) for me.

    Probably they were trying to avoid the hot-button term “platelet rich plasma.” They also see how fans react. It was probably a miscalculation, though, because fans are going to freak out no matter what.

    FWIW, in the initial story I wrote on Friday, I said that PRP and stem-cell are both “biological” injections. I don’t know why the Angels phrased it that way. Today Canning said it was PRP.

    You’re telling me you were like “biological injections... hmmm, oh right, PRP.”?  I don’t know what they were trying to do. Pretty much anyone around baseball is familiar with a PRP injection. Most professional sports fans would’ve at least heard of them in passing. But instead they called it a biological injection. While the term may be strictly correct it is obtuse. Why do that? Something just doesn’t smell right about it all. I can’t really put my finger on it exactly. It just seems suspicious.

    🤷🏻‍♂️ For what it is worth. 
     
    Why call it biological if we all know PRP? I mean that is the weirdest part.

    Why because someone ratted our guy Bubba to the league office which automatically implicates the Angels as being involved in the sticky ball business like everyone else.

    Already pitchers are saying the balls arent flying out the same.    Im sure Callaway is doing his thing but MLB moving away from juiced balls will have a bigger impact than any coach.

    Fletcher is every manager's dream player: he can play most positions, is a team player, and is the definition of "scrappy." He'll start 95% of games, just at 3 or 4 positions.

    Injuries happen to every team (see Yankees) it is not bad luck, it happens. We don't even know the extent of the injury yet. Stop jumping to conclusions.

    As far as baseball only, which is what I primarily am, it is great. I probably read 4-6 articles a month and some of them are the really good. For Angels only news the Register is the best source for me but for genera baseball news there isn’t anything better than the Athletic. Is it worth the money, I probably don’t get my money’s worth but it is some good content when they strike gold.
