This game could be painful...a lineup without either Ohtani or fletcher, against the young Dodger star pitcher, and us sending out Pena.

I agree.

 

Angels 8

Dodgers 1

Now comes the real disadvantage of Ohtani not being able to play any position outside of pitcher. Even with a RH starter, he sits.

He needs to start working out at first. He's an athlete. He'd be able to do it.

Dont think they want him throwing because of is injury.   However it is something they need to consider.

Valbuena is playing to try to increase his trade value. That's the only thing I can think of. I am not daring to try to figure out Scioscia's reasoning though.

This is a good thought imo.   Very well may be.

LOL, how is he going to increase his trade value?  Only think I can think of is that someone likes the way he flips his bat.

Well, it might draw a few hundred more fans who want to be entertained into a prospective team's stadium. Increased revenues and all that.

And those kind of fans tend to spend a lot of money on the concessions and very little time actually watching the game.

I mean, scouts like to see guys play.  We don’t like Valbuena as an everyday player.  I don’t think it’s wild to imagine that some team sees value in him as a left handed bat off the bench.  We won’t get much back in any case.  But it’s worth trying to get what we can.

Let’s see if these guys will be crying again after this series.

Tears wouldn’t be that unusual though right ? Presumably they’re shed whenever they penetrate each other.  I mean, that’s everyday.
