    Garrett Richards might pitch next week

    If the Angels were paying him 7.5M next year they’d have 7.5M less to spend and still need to add at least two starting pitchers. The Angels paid him over 20M from 2016-2018 hoping he would stay healthy and be the #1 or 2 they needed and it never happened. It’s time for some fans to stop pining over him like someone they had a crush on in high school. What could have been was better than reality.

    Garrett Richards might pitch next week

    He’s 31 years old and pitched more than 170 innings in a season once in his career. I wish him the best but if he does anything next year and ends up with a multi year contract I hope it’s with anyone but the Angels.
  3. The only candidates that will have an honest discussion actually stand for or believe in something. The main candidates believe in whatever will get them elected. When one of them supports _______ the rest jump on board and try to one up them.

    2019-20 Official NFL thread

    Teams sit some guys the entire preseason and I don't blame them because no one wants to lose a starter in a meaningless game. Unfortunately when week 1 rolls around there's rust to shake off and timing is an issue.

    Ken Rosenthal: No more excuses for Eppler

    The Angels have scored the 11th most runs with a team ERA that ranks 24th. The offense isn't what they need to focus on.

    Offensively the Angels can save money by buying out Kole. They need at least 2 starters and if they wait for Cole to decide that's fine but like Chuck said they need to be aggressive bringing in at least 1 more arm. They didn't acquire anyone that was moved at the deadline and that's fine but it's now or never come the off season and I don't want to hear people saying they'll have better luck at next year's deadline. Arms aren't cheap but they need them and they have some pieces to try and make it happen.

    Looking back at underrated players

    Picture on the left he looks angry and like he's ready to hit a baseball 450 feet. Picture on the right he looks like he's checked out and thinking about his next meal.

    Kevin Hart

    His movie schtick has gotten old but I don't blame him for making what he can while he can and he seems like a good guy. Hopefully everyone involved fully recovers and this is a lesson to anyone else who wants to drive a muscle car on a winding road.
  13. It's referred to as headline risk in the business world. Stories like this are front page while retractions, settlements and so on end up on the back page where hardly anyone sees them. On the news the legal battle is a leading story while a settlement is a 30 second blurb later on in the show. The longer it's on the front page and being talked about while it's dragged out the more it negatively affects the franchise as they try to move forward with business as usual. It has nothing to do with right, wrong or justified. For the record I don't think the Angels should pay anything but rather than dragging it out and keeping the franchise in the news for the wrong reasons I wouldn't fault them for paying a settlement which includes an NDA to put it to bed.
  14. This. Right or wrong is almost a moot point. The sad truth is it’s easier to pay and make it go away rather than deal with the negative press and growing legal fees.
