    Angels claim Brian Goodwin....

    Would it be that much worst than watching the Upton adventure series in left field?

    We may not have Bane anymore but it’s good to know that Trout is also doing prospect scouting as well. I think we need to give him credit for Jo Adell. That’s something not considered in WAR....

    New Angels Stadium in Long Beach?

    So, to play this out, let’s say Arte moves to Long Beach. He may have to get permission from the Dodgers, he may not. In either event, Anaheim is now open for grabs. How long does it take a team who desires 3M fans and a large size TV marked to make the move? I’m looking at you, Tampa Bay. So, Arte gets tucked away in a nice location that is very difficult to get to, and someone else is enjoying being in an older park with much better access and fans located in a 360 degree area around the stadium....
  4. Vera seems to be very a highly thought of prospect. Baldoquin not so much when DiPoto threw crazy international money at him...
  5. Or, some players feel a loyalty to and comfort level with their current organization. You could do a lot worse than Denver...

    No more "Disabled List"

    Isn’t “injured” actually a more correct term anyway? The NFL has had an “injury list” and “injured reserve” designation for years. They seem to be doing pretty well...
  7. “Forearm tightness” - sounds like he’s on deck for another TJ surgery... At least it’s a low cost risk...
  8. For MLB to actually put this out to the public is another indicator that Dr. Martin has some real credibility issues. While we know that already, MLB basically just put themselves squarely in the boat against her and you wouldn’t think they would do that unless they were 100% sure, especially in today’s social environment..... On another topic, what about the investigation as to who leaked Ohtani’s medical info......

    Upton on MLB Radio re: Ohtani

    I always saw him as a potential 1B if he had to play a position. Long, lanky, with good reflexes. And, 1B isn’t taxing on the arm except for throwing the ball to Simmons after a groundout.....
  10. Clint Hurdle may have been the most overhyped. SI cover boy before he played a game.

    Happy Birthday Bobby Grich

    Love Bobby Grich but he wasn’t very good at picking up air conditioners....

    Alex Meyer back...

    I would think he would be a more viable back end option in the pen rather than a starter.

    I’m probably weighing in late on this thread, but my concern with signing Tulo is that you have to make a 40 man roster move and I’m not sure if we have to put someone on waivers to accommodate him. His upside at this point is so limited that I’m more more worried about losing someone to accommodate signing someone who I don’t think adds much, if anything, to the roster. I would rather split 3B between Ward and Cozart, with Cozart seeing time at 2B as well.
  14. Let’s all pump the brakes on this one just a bit. Remember there are always three sides to a story, and this is just hers. Of course it’s going to portray her as a victim and her attorney will throw everything against the wall to be sure it sticks. From what I’ve heard it was the players on the Mariners who told management they didn’t want anything to do with her. They just didn’t find her credible from any standpoint. She was then asked to work with the minor leagues only and she didn’t endear herself to them either. From the stories relayed to me it sounded like she was totally clueless as to how baseball worked, both on the field and off the field. She sounds like a person who has real trouble building relationships, and baseball, like other businesses, is built on relationships. It sounds like the Lakers had the same experience. In any event, she better hope she gets something out of this because I can’t see any sports organization hiring her in the future. Of course, I blame DiPoto for hiring her and giving her a lofty position without, it seems, any due diligence.

    Going WAY out on the Limb

    I believe that Butcher being gone was a decision Arte made. Butcher was the guy that was arguing with Dipoto on that infamous day. Butcher was lucky he got to complete the season because he should have been fired right after DiPoto quit. Scosicia’s issue was that he backed Butcher. At least that was what I was told happened....
