I am conducting an experiment this week. I am traveling, and have chosen to (A) not take my laptop so that I can do Links on family time, and (B) not coerce others on the masthead to fill in for me during the holiday season.
For today and tomorrow I am going to create an Open Links Forum and let you people have your own chat room to share things of interest, LAA and beyond. I will be back tomorrow.
You know how to find stuff, but I am giving you tips below anyway. Some of my go-to starting points. You also know the rules. Stick to baseball, focus on the Angels as much as possible, and all the other comment rules remain in force.
I need this to work, because I need to take some days off next week too! So please, let’s crowd-source the Links and demonstrate that we as a community can share in the fun when necessary.
Do me a huge favor, and kill with with DIY-Offseason-Links:
A Little Bit of Angels News
This is usually the hardest place to find fresh stuff because the LAA organization is quiet by default. But here and here are good launch points for trying to track down stuff.........It’s also wise to do the obvious, such as google “Mike Trout news”..........Of course, you people are already pretty good at finding stuff on your own as the day goes by.
Everywhere In Baseball
Baseball is about more than just players moving around, or rumors of players moving around. Keep current at places like this (obviously).....and this.....and this......and even places like these......Most people right now are fascinated by the hot stove, but there will still be good things to think about between blockbuster moments..........
It’s still hot stove season. Other teams are reacting to Eppler & Cashman. you can keep up with good stuff here for general baseball, and also here. And for LAA-specific rumors, use this. When you find something, LINK IT!..........
The Duffle Bag
You guys can also link to fun, short stuff you trip across. Try not to go off topic too much or too far!.........
