  1. I just wanted to be the guy who gave you your 12,000th like. It’s all about milestones here AO.
  2. Weren’t you the same guy that said “LaStella is not going to play first” just last week? Only to be refuted by that 2 minutes later?
  3. Aside from being at Game 2 and Game 6 of the 2002 World Series, this was easily one of the most emotional and awesome performances this team has ever put forth. Walking into the stadium that night, the fans were still in shock, and that game was an amazing tribute to a fallen teammate. It still defies logic.
  4. I don’t know what “derp” means YK, but if that word means “bullshit” or “dogshit” than that’s the right word. Absolute nonsense.
  5. According to CBS Sports, the Angels have the toughest road to the post season, while the boys in blue have one of the easiest using the 2019 stats and records. 2020 MLB schedule winners and losers: Mets, Angels have tough slates; good news for NL Central contenders
  6. That’s plagiarism Strad and you know it.
  7. These posts were separated by exactly 2 minutes.
  8. I like this line up also Stradling, not just because the 3 batter rule you cited, but the Trout/Ohtani/Rendon hitters coming up with a right/left/right handed line up also. Throw in LaStella also over Albert and you have another lefty bat in there, which can limit the shifting our opponents had when we had the “pull happy” Calhoun and Albert in there. it opens up more options of hit and run and limits the defensive strategy. Several other line ups in this thread are also very good. Can’t wait to see it in action.
  9. My wife might not agree with you Claude. She loves her Angels baseball.
  10. But athletes ARE regular people. They do the same shit we all do. They shop at grocery stores like we all do. They put gas in their cars like we do. They go to restaurants like we all do. They have regular lives. Can they afford to not work? The answer is most of them can, not all of them. So to say a professional athlete can sit at home and not do anything is tad bit of hyperbole. People have lives, and when people step out of their houses, they are at risk. Not just on playing fields. But the reality is if athletes, like all of us "regular Joe's" do what most of us are doing every day, they will have a fairly good chance of not contracting the virus.
  11. First off, I respect any decision Mike Trout, or for that matter, any player who decides to opt out because of a family decision or for whatever reason they choose. It's their right, their decision and their life. With that being said, there is no way that any person is going to be 100% safe in this environment. So I understand the concern of the players while being on the road. I read Kris Bryant's tweet in which he cites travel, hotels, room service, etc. The reality is if players do what most everyone is doing, wear your mask in public, wash your hands extensively, and social distance when possible, you are basically eliminating 95% of the way of transmitting or contracting the virus. There are no sure things, and there won't be for a while. For reference...my son is a Paramedic in LA County and his station responds to over 7,200 calls a year. His wife is an ER Nurse at Huntington Hospital and is 7 months pregnant. She was STILL working in her ER up until a month ago until she felt it was just too dangerous, but my son is still working his shifts. This is extremely high risk for all involved, but they do what is required. They mask up, wash their hands, and stay current on testing. So far, so good thank God. So when I hear players say they are worried about this, the answer is they should be. Aren't we all? But the reality is players are not at any more risk than any one of us. As a matter of fact, they are probably SAFER than the general public because they eventually will have protections in place to protect them. Most of us don't. I will respect any player that decides to opt out, as I stated before, Mike Trout included. But I simply cannot wait for baseball to start. I firmly believe once the season starts, things will fall into place. If it goes south after 20 games, I'll have to accept that. But at least that's 20 games we got to watch.
  12. That sounds more like fantasy baseball Scott.
  13. You probably start standing up with 2 outs in the top of the 7th inning also In giddy anticipation of Buttercup. Preparation is the key.
