HOW WILL THE ANGELS WIN TODAY?!

The Nationals have reinstated Alex Avila, Yan Gomes, Brad Hand, Jody Mercer & Patrick Corbin from the Covid IL. No word yet on Josh Bell, Josh Harrison, Jon Lester & Kyle Schwarber, which suggests that they were the 4 players who tested positive, while the other players were ‘close contacts’ who were quarantined but eventually tested negative.

Giancarlo Stanton’s 2-run single to RF against the shift, followed by Aaron Hicks possibly slump-busting HR to left, gives the Yankees a 4-2 lead over the Rays.

Gio Urshela was scratched from today’s Yankee lineup due to a reaction to the coronavirus vaccination:
New York Yankees third baseman Gio Urshela was placed on the COVID injured list due to side effects from a vaccination, the team announced Friday. . . . Uniform personnel and members of the Yankees traveling party were vaccinated on Wednesday at Yankee Stadium, both before and after their 4-3 loss in 11 innings to the Baltimore Orioles. Manager Aaron Boone said that "a number of people in our travel party," including players, received the vaccine against COVID-19.
Is he the 1st to miss time due a vaccine reaction?

Garrett Cooper missed a couple games with a vaccine reaction.

Arozarena is completely lost. Every hit I've seen so far has been a ground ball.

The first hit of the season at whatever the Giants' park is called is a single in the top of the fifth by the Rockies' Raimel Tapia.

Question: Nolan Arenado said he has never had a curtain call until after his home run yesterday. Since I’m primarily a St. Louis fan, curtain calls are not uncommon in stl. Is this just a STL thing? I’ve been in many ballparks and I don’t remember seeing curtain calls anywhere else - had never really thought about it. An enterprising writer at VEB went into the Rockies archive of video and could not find a instance of him ever receiving one so there is some evidence that what he said is true.

Nats-Dodgers was an old-fashioned thriller, a 1-0 pitching duel that wrapped up in a tidy 2:21.
   10. The_Ex Posted: April 09, 2021 at 07:16 PM (#6012626)
Ryan Borucki of the Blue Jays is also on the adverse reaction to the vaccine list, whatever its called.

Did not expect the very excited Depeche Mode reference by the Angels announcing team.
   12. Shohei Brotani (formerly LA Hombre) Posted: April 09, 2021 at 08:37 PM (#6012632)
If Jared Walsh is the real thing — and he looks like he might be! — then the Angels have a scary line-up. Fletcher, Ohtani, Trout, Rendon, Upton, and Walsh is just a tremendous stretch of bats.

Ohtani's doubled and homered, Trout's doubled, Walsh has homered. It's 7-0 Angels.

A's vs. the Cheaters... good luck with that.

Correa knew what pitch was coming.

If you're not watching Padres-Rangers, you should tune in to Padres-Rangers.

Jays' Lourdes Gurriel removed after second inning of Friday's contest. CBSSports.com says team revealed he's dealing with side effects of receiving COVID-19 vaccine, and is day to day.
   34. Edmundo got dem ol' Kozma blues again mama Posted: April 10, 2021 at 09:32 AM (#6012663)
Gabe Kapler paid a second Phils visit to the mound in an inning and walked back to the dugout, unaware that he had to make a pitching change. Oh wait, that was Joe Girardi.

Please explain how Girardi is better than Kapler, having worse records with an improved core?

Is the awful-looking black just the Marlins regular road jersey?
