I’m watching the Mets-Dodgers game right now, and the wind is gusting to 42 miles per hour.  The Dodgers are in the field right now, and there is garbage everywhere.

Lots of trash on the field too.

Mets lead 5-1.

Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports that the Angels have hired former Tigers manager Brad Ausmus as a special assistant to GM Billy Eppler.

Ausmus, 48, managed the Tigers for four seasons, accruing a 314-332 (.486) record. The Tigers fired him after the 2017 season and hired former Twins manager Ron Gardenhire in his place.

Ausmus will assist with scouting and evaluations of players in the Angels’ system, amateurs, and players in other organizations.
