    Yeah, Salmon was a really really good player, but the 90s/early 00s had some pretty insane numbers going on among OFers. And not just the HOF-level guys like Manny, Griffey, etc... It was dudes like Juan Gonzalez, Bernie Williams, Albert Belle, Kenny Lofton, etc... Those dudes put up some freaking awesome years in that era.

    I get your point... and it's kinda sorta accurate, but in my opinion not the most important part of Salmon never going to an ASG. Simply put (and this is without doing a deep dive into the numbers), I highly doubt Salmon was ever one of the three best OFers in the AL at the end of June in any year of his career (his year in 95 was pretty sick overall, so maybe then?). So expecting one fanbase with little national-level loyalty/attention being paid to them to somehow successfully execute a crazy ballot-stuffing campaign for a dude that honestly didn't fully deserve it, while other more nationally recognized teams did the the same for their guys that often actually were more deserving would've been well... asking a lot.

    Lol. I thought that too. Like this is where translators get interesting. He basically called out the Angels org holding him back and thought there should be more fans there? Lol. Though I hope he legit said that, because that would be awesome.

    It would really suck if we win like 79 games instead of 83 because he hurts himself.

    I’m more curious about the other 20% of fires “plaguing” downtown LA. Like are we talking volcanic activity, a hot war between rats in the sewer system somewhere, an absurd amount of restaurant kitchen fires, @Tank going on an all broccoli diet?

    Or really just like skipping your turn in the rotation and adding in an off day somewhere. I'd say it's gotta be 15 to start having real teeth.

    True.  And I’m getting to that point.  But the more people vaccinated the better chance we have to totally eradicate Covid.  That would be a nice goal.  But those 100s and their misguided quest for higher self-esteem are making that look unlikely.

    I hear ya. He’s definitely streaky, but I think him being in the leadoff spot might be the difference maker this time

    I’ve been on three cruises myself. One to the west coast of Mexico when I was like 18 (PV, Mazatlan, Cabo), one to Alaska, and one to the Caribbean. All were solid, but very different. The first one to Mexico was pretty awesome all around. The last one to the Caribbean was ok. Food was good, but like 90% of the staff just seemed super depressed, which made it kinda sad. Plus we had to skip one port (Jamaica) because of weather.
    The one to Alaska was pretty cool though because I sort of went as hybrid passenger/crew. My dad’s “retirement job” was working as a musical director/piano player for various cruise lines/ships. So he sort of managed all of the musicians on whatever boat he was on, then would also play 5-6 gigs with various groups or by himself throughout the day. At the time I graduated college he was working a Vancouver to Alaska job and couldn’t come to my graduation. He felt bad about that, and he offered to fly me to Vancouver so we could meet up and spend a week on the ship together. It was a really cool experience, because while I could operate as a normal passenger in terms of food/drink/entertainment I was technically considered crew. So I had access to both the public areas and private areas of the ship. Getting to know the employee culture was super fun. Like there was a crew only bar way below deck that was only open from 1-6AM. People there were from literally all over the world, tons of different languages being spoken, crazy cheap drinks (a Jack and coke for instance was 50 cents), everybody hooking up with everybody, just fucking wild.

    Really happy Upton is playing so well with Trout out. But this is just classic Upton. Dude gets red hot for three weeks then ice cold for two weeks. At the end of the year it ends up with him being pretty decent overall. I’m just glad he’s chosen this time to get hot.

    Ward now has a .756 OPS.
    May have to put him in RF regularly, when Trout comes off the DL.
    Upton continues to be on fire.
    Since May 23 (80 PAs):
    .333/.450/.682/1.132
    Went from .661 OPS to .823 OPS.

    I think from a stuff standpoint Sandoval is probably a top 4 pitcher on this team. I’d put Ohtani, C-Rod, and Iglesias ahead of him, but that’s it.
