  1. Thank you for doing such a great job on the interview! It was a very compelling and fun story to write! I hope you have the opportunity someday to meet Ohtani and continue to support him as a fan for many, many years. We are all so lucky to be witnessing such a spectacular performance from him this year.
  2. That would be very cool. Baseball would do well by expanding the global market, and what better way to do that than with someone with such international appeal.
  3. What an amazing story for her. She is absolutely right, the world needs more positive and inspirational stories right now, and who better to focus on than Shohei Ohtani! I hope he reads the story and will tweet out to her and his other amazing fans, both in America and around the world, to continue to provide inspiration. He may be the pride of Japan, but he is inspiring baseball fans around the world. We are so lucky that he plays for the Angels.
  4. Thank you. I've talked with Fletcher several times and that is exactly my take on him. He is genuine, real, and not that different now that he has success. He is truly the epitome of a blue collar player, which is why I think he is such a fan favorite.
  5. I would be willing to offer Adams and Jackson for Meyer and see if we can work out a deal.
  6. I very much agree that ranking the prospects at this point is probably the most challenging that it's been in about a decade. There are obvious tiers in the prospects in terms of talent. And there are obvious waves of talent based on age and development. But, the best news is that there is a lot more talent in the system. And it is very young with lots of upside. We have many arms to fix the rotation and bullpen, even excluding those who are likely to graduate. The future is a lot brighter for Angels fans.
  7. Here's the thing. We added so many arms between the draft and trades, and so many undrafted free agents (after the draft and with the international signings) and we haven't technically graduated any of our prospects yet. So, players basically holding their own in the rankings are actually doing well and improving. Next offseason, we will open up many spots with graduates and will add many more players. The funny thing is, seeing how many of our prospects are young, the talent level will at least stay the same and will most likely improve. There's a lot to be hopeful about with the Angels. We now have a good balance of pitching, hitting, and we finally have a catcher in development!
  8. This was the case for many "national" reporters who didn't spend the time watching him. They wanted to appear like they were giving him a "fair" treatment by finding some area to criticize that would be hard to back up with data.
  9. There's a lot to really like with him. Lots to dream on and project. But, let's remember, the numbers won't tell the whole story as they are developing him. Let's all remember this as we are evaluating him. Instead, it's a lot better to go see him in person or watch him online.
  10. Thanks. He came across as a good kid and someone who would be a great clubhouse presence. And, thanks for the concerns about me. I'm just doing the best as I can and as much as I can. I love covering the Minors and doing interviews. I hope to have more soon.
  11. Thanks Chuck! It's nice to have some arms to get excited about and discuss. Dashwood is one of our few lefties, and he really attacks hitters. Long term, he may be more suited for the pen because of the way he approaches and attacks hitters, but he can spot start. I do see a potential role for him. He's another player who needs to get his innings in after the lost year in 2020.
  12. Thanks. He's a big lefty whom I could see in our pen sooner than later. Look at his control and how he attacks hitters. He also came across as a very nice young man. I truly am rooting for him.
