  1. Ima gonna guess that it will be this kind of talk/thought that will likely make Arte's wallet pucker. But, here's to hoping not...
  2. Gotta love the current 14-1 piss-pounding the Angels are giving them right now. As this Diaz kid has been lights out...
  3. So, I'm confused, Given that pitching has been a chronic problem for awhile...did he ask for more at the start of this season? As, I don't think that he did & if so...it's strange coming from the guy who advocated for the Angels to waste 8 million on Quintana. Who, if I remember right...thought he would be their "innings eater". Plus, what's also weird...if he's indeed calling out Perry here (as he should given that he & his staff didn't produce any more/better than Eppler did alone) whose decision was it to let an inexperienced coach (Wise) have the job after Callaway was dismissed?
  4. I believe only Iglesias will be resigned. As I think Bundy's regression, this season from last, will make them leary about Cobb...
  5. Well...let's hope that Criswell can show us something tonight to give us even more reason to be optimistic for the future. That, seemingly, is telling us that we're still a few years away from being competitive...
  6. Sadly, even back in 2014 (despite their spin) the welfare of immigrant children was even less of a concern... https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/obama-build-cages-immigrants/ https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/did-obama-administration-children-human-traffickers/
  7. Perhaps a bit high considering any mention of "polls", will likely start him waxing about his love of their sausages. Plus, his advisors are safe since he doesn't know who any of them are...
  8. This is what distresses me the most. Which, I'm sure has been mentioned already, but...given Minasian's staff of supposed "top men" (that Eppler never had) is it not odd that there appears to be no obvious benefit from it this season? I mean, from the Angels current record (and likely finish) one might well think that Eppler was still in charge & find it rather shocking that Perry & his brain-trust have failed to ID/produce better starting/relief free agents/minor league signings given their combined knowledge/experience.
  9. Otherwise known as the Eppler recipe that is rather ironic given his eye for talent at other positions. So, if Minasian doesn't want to get sacked as well...he would be well-served IMO to adopt a Costanza-like "opposite strategy" next season & sign a solid #2 & a #3 to give this team the best chance to succeed/compete/win next season. Not to mention it would help to break their perennial .500 cycle (that has/continues to plague this team) & would certainly/hopefully be a plus when the bats (sadly...more times than not) are at a minus.
  10. Final Scorecard: The Angels signed 19 of the 20 players they drafted (with the lone exception being Texas Christian RHS Marcelo Perez) https://www.mlb.com/press-release/press-release-angels-sign-19-of-20-selections-from-2021-mlb-draft
  11. From the other tweets I've read...some are suggesting he could take a year off or go play Independent ball.
  12. 25-year old Janson Junk was drafted by the Yankees in the 22nd round of the 2017 MLB draft and has done well so far in his career through his time in the Yankees’ minor league system. Since 2017 he is 16-15 combined in the minor leagues with a 3.72 ERA, one save, and 230 strikeouts over the course of 254.1 innings pitched. Junk spent the 2021 season with Double-A Somerset where he has a 1.78 ERA and 4-1 record over the course of 14 games played and 65.2 innings pitched. He has recorded 68 strikeouts this season with Somerset. He was the No. 27 prospect on New York’s Top 30 prospects list before being traded to the Angels. Pinstriped Prospects’ own Matt Kardos recently did an exclusive interview with Junk in which they discussed how Junk was an “under-the-radar” prospect coming into the 2021 season. That mantra seemed to change this season as Junk was named the Double-A Northeast League’s pitcher of the Month in June. Most recently after that, in the last 11 games he has pitched for Somerset, Junk had a 1.46 ERA. Junk was a prospect took pride in working hard and he discussed with Kardos the work he put in this offseason to prepare to be the best athlete possible in 2021. Checkout the full interview with Junk on pinstripedprospects.com. Peguero, 24, has been with the Yankees organization since 2016. He has split the 2021 season between High-A Hudson Valley and Double-A Somerset. Combined between High-A and Double-A, Peguero has a 4-1 record and a 2.23 ERA. He has 57 strikeouts over the course of 44.1 innings pitched. While Peguero isn’t a prospect many hear about, the 2021 season appeared to a be a breakout season for the 24-year old. He’ll look to keep that momentum going as he transitions with Junk to the Angels’ minor league system. https://www.pinstripedprospects.com/yankees-give-up-top-prospect-in-deal-to-acquire-adam-heaney-from-angels-60995/
  13. Well boys...I'm just gonna call this game given that the A's have an insurmountable 1 run lead. Which this team can't possibly make up in 3 innings...
  14. Just as long as he doesn't "dipoto the bed" in doing so...
  15. I would love to tell you that answer, but, the person's whose job it is to provide it is the same individual who has made some absolutely boneheaded calls with regards to the pitching all season. Of which, tonight, was just another example of, given that each is a known liability that points to a odd lack of post-season planning as well!
  16. It's just a sad yet further indictment on Maddon & his mind-set. As, seemingly, it's more important to him that his faith be rewarded (regarding 2 players who won't even be on the roster next season) even if it costs whatever chance they have/had at the post-season...
