The Los Angeles Angels future is on display as we enter July. Baseball writers were surprised that Angels GM Perry Minasian did so little at last week’s trade deadline, given the Angels’ unlikelihood of making the playoffs. Yet, the Angels made a flurry of internal moves that should bring a smile to the face of […]

Caleb Begley - May 18, 2022

It is the gold standard, the pinnacle of what any pitcher can accomplish. Winning 300 games involves a lot of dedication and a lot of practice. It means showing […]

If you’ve followed the Oakland Athletics at all this year, you’d know that the A’s bats have been a glaring weakness of the team.
