The last time a combined no hitter was thrown in the state of California was when the Os did it to the As in 1991..they did it on the day Skaggs was born.

I don’t do social media. I hop on Twitter when something major happens, like the no-hitter yesterday. Only have to go down like 3 comments to figure out why I don’t twitter and that there are some messed up people out there.

The thing I like about Twitter is you can completely customize what you see. But I hear you.

Not shocked the opioid crisis is not immune to certain groups in society.

Still a very sad story.

 

I feel bad for his wife, parents and family.  It makes it even worse for them.

Sounds like Ausmus will lose his job after one season as the manager. I wonder if there is a thought that they are getting rid of him because they think they’ll get Maddon?

Tough year for them because of some injuries and the Skaggs situation.

This organization needs to start building a farm system. They are wasting Trout.

Source confirms #Angels have Buck Showalter and John Farrell on their list of 4 manager candidates interviewed this week. Joe Maddon is the other. We don't know the 4th. The interviews are not over.

Been mentioned with NYM, Philly, LAA, SD (at-least via Manny)...  still interest in him. 
There were people who thought he was done, clearly not.  Good for him.

Fantastic! 

 

He wasn't close to done, to me it'll always be a mystery why the 2018 Orioles were THAT awful. Oh well, on to bigger things for Buck I hope.

Heard Stephen A making the argument that Buck would be a bad hire for the Mets because of how bad the Os were in his last season.

 

Thats a typical national person's POV on baseball topics...just stupid.

Buck would be a bad hire if other managers that actually have won things are still available. Buck would be a bad hire if your team uses analytics. Buck would be a bad hire if your team has a closer and you end up in games that matter.

If you have a guy batting .160 and wants to bat leadoff, Buck is your guy. If you have a gold glover with an ego that wants a position switch at the risk of weakening the team, Buck is your guy.

Not sure what take is worse, Stephen A's or Randall's.

If you hire Buck over Joe Maddon, that’s a bad hire. I know I went a little extreme on the other takes. But you can’t really deny that Buck’s resume is meh, and that in the forward thinking era, he’s luke warm on all that high tech stuff at best.

Outside the Lines: Los Angeles Angels employee details team's knowledge of Tyler Skaggs' drug use to federal DEA investigators

 

A public relations employee for the Los Angeles Angels told federal investigators that he provided oxycodone to Tyler Skaggs and abused it with him for years, and that two team officials were told about Skaggs' drug use long before his death, according to two sources familiar with the investigation.

 

Eric Kay, the Angels' director of communications, also gave U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration agents the names of five other players who he believed were using opiates while they were Angels, the sources said.

 

So...that's not ideal.

Sad but I understand why Kay became his supplier. To keep his job.
