Frustrated Mike Trout Spots His Own Pitcher Tipping Pitches While Standing in Center Field

In the game, with the Angels already trailing, reliever Elvis Peguero was getting blown up by the White Sox in the 7th inning. While it was happening, the camera caught a visibly frustrated Mike Trout out in center field literally showing how his teammate was tipping his pitches:

Trout is demonstrating what Peguero is doing, seemingly frustrated about how obvious it is and/or about how it isn’t stopping. The White Sox were on him so well, perhaps, because they knew exactly what was coming.

Worse, nobody else seems to have figured it out – or even communicated it to Peguero – until well after the game:

Eight ejected after wild brawl between Seattle Mariners, Los Angeles Angels

The Seattle Mariners and Los Angeles Angels engaged in a lengthy full-team brawl in the second inning on Sunday after tensions over two days of inside pitches boiled over.

Seattle manager Scott Servais, Los Angeles interim manager Phil Nevin and six players were ejected after the brouhaha, which stopped and started twice before Angels closer Raisel Iglesias came back out to the empty field to throw large containers of sunflower seeds and gum onto the infield.

Seattle lost three of the first four hitters in its lineup: Jesse Winker, Julio Rodriguez and J.P. Crawford. Angels pitchers Iglesias, Andrew Wantz and Ryan Tepera also were tossed.

The Mariners’ Winker was hit by the first pitch of the second inning by Angels opener Wantz, who also had thrown a pitch behind the head of Rodriguez in the first inning.

The first pitch to Rodriguez appeared to be a response to Erik Swanson’s 95 mph fastball near Mike Trout’s head in the ninth inning Saturday night, a throw that infuriated the three-time American League MVP. The umpires gathered together after Wantz’s pitch but only issued warnings to both dugouts.

“That probably shouldn’t happen in the game, what happened out there today,” Servais said. “Emotions running high, but it was pretty clear what was going on. They switched, put an opener in there to throw some balls at us. Got out of hand from there, and kind of a black eye.”

Shohei Ohtani follows up career-high 8-RBI night with career-high 13 Ks

It’s really important we don’t take Shohei Ohtani for granted.

The Los Angeles Angels pitcher is coming off the greatest two-way season in the history of MLB — yes, even better than Babe Ruth — and he may very well surpass it this year. He is a talented unprecedented in baseball, but he’s become so big it’s hard to even remember how impossible the idea of him seemed as a prospect.

So when he does something like, say, post a two-homer, eight-RBI performance, then strike out 13 batters across eight shutout innings, we should probably do our best to appreciate it. Therefore, let’s talk about the last two days.

Kansas City Royals overcome Shohei Ohtani’s 2 HRs, 8 RBIs to edge Los Angeles Angels

Shohei Ohtani hit two three-run homers, including a dramatic tying drive in the bottom of the ninth inning. He drove in a career-high eight runs, the most by a Japanese-born player in major league history.

And somehow, it still was not enough for his Los Angeles Angels to beat the Kansas City Royals.

Whit Merrifield led off the 11th inning with an RBI double, and the Royals overcame Ohtani’s historic performance for a 12-11 victory Tuesday night.

Ohtani crushed a 423-foot homer in the sixth and a tying, 438-foot shot in the ninth, giving him the biggest RBI game of his five-year stateside career. The American League MVP then set the single-game record for RBIs by a Japanese-born player with a sacrifice fly in the 11th inning.

Although he never complains publicly, Ohtani would be perfectly justified in feeling frustrated by his Los Angeles teammates’ tepid pitching performance behind his latest heroics. But the Royals knew they won with some remarkable hitting of their own, including landmark games for both Carlos Santana and rookie Bobby Witt Jr.

Rosenthal: What to do about Shohei Ohtani long-term: A complicated equation for the Angels [$]

Sub required.

Ohtani’s current two-year, $8.5 million deal with the Angels expires at the end of the season. After that, he will be eligible for a final year of salary arbitration, effectively entering the process as two players, a pitcher and hitter. And after that, he will be eligible for free agency, again qualifying — assuming he stays healthy — as an unprecedented entry in the market, the equivalent of a rock star who simultaneously plays both lead guitar and drums.

The Angels, according to sources, had informal discussions regarding an extension for Ohtani late in spring training with his agent, Nez Balelo of CAA. Club officials expressed an understanding that to sign Ohtani, they would need to award him a record average salary, surpassing Max Scherzer’s $43.3 million. But the Angels, at least at that time, were reluctant to make the kind of long-term offer Ohtani almost certainly would command on the open market, sources said. Ohtani, coming off an MVP season, was at the peak of his value, much like Judge is right now with the Yankees. The talks never gained traction…

Even if Moreno is willing to go all-out for Ohtani, the choice would not simply be his alone. In January, Ohtani indicated to The Athletic’s Sam Blum that he did not want to discuss an extension until his current two-year deal was complete. The closer he gets to free agency, the less willing he might be to entertain such a deal, particularly if the Angels continue to flounder. The team currently is 29-33, 8 1/2 games out of first place in the AL West and 3 1/2 out in the race for the third wild card.

After Ohtani’s final start last season, which the Angels concluded with a 77-85 record, he told reporters, “I really like the team. I love the fans. I love the atmosphere of the team. But more than that, I want to win. That’s the biggest thing for me. So, I’ll leave it at that.”

Angels resort to nothing but Nickelback walk-up songs amid 13-game losing streak

On the verge of a franchise record for consecutive losses and having already fired their manager, the Angels decided to make a change on Wednesday by walking up to nothing but Nickelback songs against the Boston Red Sox.

Yes, really.

For posterity, here is the full set list, via intrepid ESPN reporter Alden Gonzalez:

Shohei Ohtani: “Photograph”

Jo Adell: “Rockstar”

Jared Walsh: “How You Remind Me”

Matt Duffy: “Someday”

Juan Lagares: “If Today Was Your Last Day”

Brandon Marsh: “When We Stand Together”

Angels dismiss Maddon amid 12-game losing streak

The Angels relieved Joe Maddon of his duties as manager, the team announced on Tuesday. Phil Nevin, who had been the third-base coach, was named interim manager.

The move comes amid a 12-game losing streak that has dropped the Angels to under .500 at 27-29.

Angels’ bats go silent in 12th consecutive loss

The Angels went to work quickly Monday, intent on reversing their recent fate.

Their second batter of the game, Shohei Ohtani, hit a line drive into and out of the glove of Boston Red Sox second baseman Trevor Story for a single. Mike Trout hit the next pitch from Michael Wacha into left field for a clean line-drive single. It was his first hit after 26 consecutive at-bats without one, the longest drought of Trout’s career.

The Angels’ bats packed it in just as quickly.

Jared Walsh hit a line drive to first baseman Franchy Cordero, who threw to second base to pick off Ohtani, who had wandered too far toward third base. The double play ended the first inning, and the Angels never got another runner past second base en route to a 1-0 loss before an announced crowd of 29,395 at Angel Stadium.

The loss was the Angels’ 12th in a row, the second-longest losing streak in franchise history. It matched the single-season record of consecutive losses, set from Sept. 19 to Oct. 2, 1988.

Anaheim City Council votes unanimously to halt the sale of Angel Stadium | LA Times

The Angel Stadium deal is dead.

The Anaheim City Council voted unanimously late Tuesday night to kill the sale of Angel Stadium and the surrounding property, in the process bracing for what city councilmen said could be a long and nasty legal battle with Angels owner Arte Moreno.

Under the terms of the sale agreement, if Anaheim kills the deal, the city could refund the $50 million Arte Moreno already has put into escrow, plus up to $5 million in his “transaction costs” and potential legal fees. However, the city’s preliminary legal position is that the alleged fraud might relieve the city of that burden – and could trigger a court to order Arte Moreno’s company to pay the city’s legal costs.

Arte Moreno, who formed the management company to develop the Angel Stadium property, also could sue the city for breach of contract.

Yet Councilmen Jose Moreno and Avelino Valencia all but dared Arte Moreno to take that step. With an FBI agent saying Sidhu had provided confidential negotiating information to the Angels in the hope of securing a million-dollar campaign contribution from them, Jose Moreno said he would welcome the chance to depose Sidhu and Arte Moreno under oath in the event the Angels file suit.

Anaheim mayor resigns amid corruption investigation involving Angel stadium deal | Politico

Anaheim Mayor Harry Sidhu has resigned in the face of a growing federal corruption investigation alleging Sidhu sought to wring campaign donations from baseball stadium negotiations.
...
A federal affidavit released this week has jolted California’s tenth-largest city, laying out evidence that Sidhu sought to turn the city’s prolonged attempt to sell Angel Stadium — home of the major league Angels — to his personal advantage.

FBI Corruption Probe Into Anaheim Mayor Sidhu Stalls the Angel Stadium Sale

California Attorney General Rob Bonta is calling for a 60-day pause on the Angel Stadium land sale –  as the FBI is taking a hard look at Anaheim Mayor Harry Sidhu for public corruption allegations.

The “FBI learned that the City of Anaheim was tightly controlled by a small cadre of individuals, including SIDHU, a particular member of the Anaheim Chamber of Commerce, and others,” reads a Thursday affidavit from FBI agent Brian Adkins in Bonta’s court filing.

Sidhu’s attorney, Paul Meyer, declined to comment, saying it would “premature” at this stage to do so, in a Monday text message.

According to the affidavit, Adkins apparently wiretapped the cell phones of people close to Sidhu, capturing conversations and messages between them and Sidhu detailing things like the Mayor’s influence over the city council and Sidhu’s apparent efforts to thwart an OC Grand Jury investigation into the stadium sale.

The FBI agent also turned some of the people closest to Sidhu into federal informants, according to the affidavit. The affidavit is meant to show probable cause that crimes were committed.

A court hearing is scheduled at 11:45 a.m. Tuesday at the North Justice Center in Fullerton.

Federal officials allege that Sidhu tried ramming the deal through this year so he could get his reelection campaign financed by the Angels – likely through a political action committee, which typically spends money on mailers and other political advertising.

Rookie Detmers no-hits Rays in 11th career start

Before Tuesday’s game against the Rays, Angels manager Joe Maddon noted that while rookie lefty Reid Detmers had been improving in his recent starts, he hadn’t quite reached his top gear yet on the mound.

Detmers did more than just that, as the 22-year-old made history in just his 11th career start by throwing a no-hitter against the Rays in a 12-0 win at Angel Stadium. He struck out just two and walked one, but kept Tampa Bay’s hitters off-balance, getting 11 groundouts and eight flyouts. He needed a career-high 108 pitches to record the no-no, getting Yandy Díaz to ground out to shortstop for the final out.

It was the 12th no-hitter in Angels history and the first since Taylor Cole and Félix Peña memorably combined to throw one against the Mariners on July 12, 2019, in the club’s first home game since the death of pitcher Tyler Skaggs. And it was the first individual no-hitter since Jered Weaver threw one against the Twins on May 2, 2012. It was also the second no-hitter thrown in the Majors this year, as five Mets pitchers combined to throw one against the Phillies on April 29.

Matt Vasgersian “embarrassed” by the Angels’ remote broadcast difficulties

The Angels and Bally Sports have gone with a unique broadcast setup this year, choosing Matt Vasgersian as their lead play-by-play voice even though he’s based on the East Coast.

The experiment has gotten off to a rocky start thanks to various technical issues that come with not only broadcasting games remotely, but broadcasting them with the actual broadcasters not calling games together. It’s one thing to have Vasgersian and partner Mark Gubicza calling games together off-site somewhere. That’s bad enough, and leads to problems. But having them separate and off-site has led to viral moments already, like this botched home run call over the weekend.

Essentially, it’s just the inherent delays involved; not just the Trout homer, but other moments as well make it very apparent to viewers that there’s a lag.

Vasgersian knows this. He even went on the record with The Athletic’s Sam Blum in a piece published last night, calling it embarrassing:

“I’m embarrassed when I miss a home run call,” Vasgersian said. “And nobody wears that harder than me. It’s like the worst thing that you can do in this business. It stinks for the fans. It stinks for the guy that hit it. It stinks for me. And everybody likes to make fun of the guy that gets something wrong.”

Maddon intentionally walks Seager ... with the bases loaded?!

Angels manager Joe Maddon has long been known for being unconventional throughout his 19-year career as a Major League manager.

But he took it to the extreme Friday against the Rangers, opting to intentionally walk Rangers slugger Corey Seager with the bases loaded and one out in the fourth inning to bring home a run. Maddon called on right-hander Austin Warren to intentionally walk Seager to get to right-handed batters Mitch Garver and Adolis García.

The move backfired, as Garver hit a deep drive to right-center field for a sacrifice fly, while Warren balked with García at the plate to bring home another run. It capped a five-run inning that gave Texas the lead.

It was just the third time a hitter had been walked intentionally with the bases loaded since 1950, as Josh Hamilton was also given a free pass with the bases juiced in 2008 and so was Barry Bonds in 1998.

Maddon was the opposing manager when he opted to intentionally walk Hamilton with the bases loaded on Aug. 17, 2008.

Outfielder Justin Upton has been designated for assignment by the Los Angeles Angels, sources told ESPN’s Jeff Passan on Saturday.

The Angels will owe him $28 million for this season, the final one in a five-year deal.

Given the money still owed to Upton, it’s unlikely any team would deal for his services, paving the way for him to become a free agent.

Angels bolster bullpen by signing Ryan Tepera and Archie Bradley

The Angels made two significant moves to bolster their bullpen Thursday, agreeing to terms with Ryan Tepera on a two-year, $14-million deal and Archie Bradley on a one-year, $3.75-million deal, according to two people familiar with the signings but not authorized to speak publicly about them.
The deals with the veteran right-handers, which are pending physicals, will add much-needed depth to a relief corps that is anchored by closer Raisel Iglesias and veteran left-hander Aaron Loup.

Tepera, 34, has a 12-14 career record and 3.48 ERA with 12 saves in seven big league seasons, his first five with the Toronto Blue Jays. Bradley, 29, has a 30-28 career record and 3.89 ERA with 30 saves in seven big league seasons, his first six with the Arizona Diamondbacks.

The 6-foot-1, 195-pound Tepera spent last season with the Chicago Cubs and White Sox, going 0-2 with a 2.79 ERA and two saves in 65 games, striking out 74 and walking 19 in 61 1/3 innings.

In baseball, the name “Bob” has gone from extremely common to a marginal curiosity and nexus of confusion.

There was one active MLB Bob last year, Bobby Abreu, whose given name is “Bob” but goes by “Bobby”. In 2010 there were two - Abreu, and Bob Howry, whose given name is “Bobby” but goes by “Bob”. In 2009 we also had Bob McCrory.

In the future, will “Bob” be as unheard-of for baseball players as “Dick”? Can Bob Stumpo restore glory to this appellation?

Orlando Cabrera To Retire From Baseball

OH NO, EXPO!

Last season, Orlando Cabrera batted .238 with the Indians and Giants, posting a 61 OPS+. The season before that, he posted a 76 OPS+. The season before that, he posted an 85 OPS+. Orlando Cabrera has been declining, and just turned 37 years old. As a free agent, Cabrera didn’t drum up much interest, which I’m guessing is why he’s intending to hang ‘em up. Enrique Rojas:

  “Orlando Cabrera to retire from baseball, he said in Colombia radio station. Thanks for memories!”

Cabrera had a long career that’ll be difficult to forget. He debuted with the Expos in 1997, and remained there until the giant Nomar Garciaparra three-way trade in 2004. That year, with the Red Sox, Cabrera won a World Series. He wound up with the Angels, earning the unfortunate nickname “The Wizard of O.C.”, and then he wound up with the White Sox, and the A’s, and the Twins, and the Reds, and the Indians, and the Giants ... He remained a shortstop to the end, and collected 2,055 hits. He will always be remembered as a pest. An absolute pest.

Angels Hoping They Can Get Mike Napoli Back Now That They Have Albert Pujols And C.J. Wilson To Trad

TFA:

ANAHEIM, CA—After spending $330 million on big-time free agents Albert Pujols and C.J. Wilson, Los Angeles Angels officials said Monday they now feel they have the pieces in place to make a trade for former Angels catcher Mike Napoli. “At first we thought we could make a run at Mike by offering a player-for-player trade, but we ultimately realized the Rangers would probably want more than just C.J. Wilson,” said general manager Jerry Dipoto, adding that getting back the lifetime .264 hitter is the team’s top priority. “So we signed Albert Pujols. And if the Rangers aren’t willing to accept both of those guys, which I completely understand, we’ve already inked a $140 million contract with Prince Fielder.” Dipoto said that when he presented the deal to Nolan Ryan, the Rangers president was speechless, prompting Dipoto to throw in every single Angels draft pick through 2034.

Murray Chass: NO TWO SIDES TO AN MLB.COM SELIG STORY and MORRIS UNLIKELY TO MAKE IT

Murray Sez… have a Bud and a Jack chaser

When I left The New York Times in 2008 after having written for the newspaper for 39 years, the first offer I received to continue writing came from a high-ranking Major League Baseball official who was in position to offer me a job as a columnist with MLB.com. My initial reaction was to say no, but some people urged me to reconsider and at least talk about and consider that possibility.

Accepting that offer would have turned out to be more economically lucrative than what I have done with this Web site the past three and a half years. But money isn’t everything. Writing for MLB.com just didn’t seem like the right thing to do.

How could I have gone to work for the organization I had spent my professional life covering? Wouldn’t I be compromising my professional ethics by accepting a salary from people I would be in position to criticize and question if necessary? ...

To be sure, MLB.com serves a purpose, even for baseball writers, for whom it can serve as a 30-team research site in one location and a source of comprehensive statistics that are not mingled with WAR and VORP and all of those other metrics, as their advocates like to call them.

But then there are the self-congratulatory articles that can induce nausea. I guess we don’t have to read them, but they are there as propaganda for fans to see and be taken in by. Yes, baseball propaganda. I had never thought about it before this moment, but that’s what it is. ...

And maybe someday, perhaps when he retires, whenever that is, Selig will be big enough to allow an MLB.com columnist to write the truth about collusion and his role in the labor wars.

By the way, this column was not subject to the approval of Major League Baseball or its clubs.

Based on e-mail I have received from critics of Morris and me, the Hall of Fame should take the vote away from baseball writers and simply establish statistical guidelines for players’ election. The players over the line make it, those under don’t.

Such a system would eliminate what is perhaps the greatest debate in sports, but that wouldn’t bother the stats zealots. Their numbers tell them who should be in the Hall of Fame, and the writers would be wrong if they disagreed.

That system would also eliminate the aspect of the voting that they hate most. Their opinion doesn’t mean beans. The writers’ opinion means everything.

DiGiovanna/LA Times Blog: Angels Secure Kendrick with Four-Year Deal

With the new deal, which is believed to be worth $33.5 million, the Angels will avoid Kendrick’s final year of arbitration and buy out his first three years of free agency.

I know Kendrick loses some value with his low walk rate, but a 125 OPS+ for a middle infielder sure seems like it should cost more than $8.5 million per year.  Seems like a team friendly deal for his age 28-31 seasons - getting out from under him before the weird 2nd baseman/age 32 curse strikes.

HBT: Pujols’ contract carries $10M in milestone incentives

According to Tim Brown of Yahoo! Sports, Pujols will get an additional $3 million from the Halos if he reaches 3,000 hits and $7 million if he manages to top Barry Bonds’ record of 762 career home runs.

Pujols will begin his tenure in Anaheim with 2,073 career hits and 445 home runs. If the 31-year-old is able to maintain the kind of offensive pace he produced in 11 years with St. Louis, he should reach 3,000 hits within the next five or six seasons. The home run record is more of a stretch, but it might be attainable if Pujols mashes for all 10 years of the contract. He’d need to average 31.7 dingers per season through 2021.
