This morning we noted that there was a brisk market for unused tickets for last week’s Johan Santana no-hitter, and that they were getting pretty expensive. Over $100 in some cases. Today the Mets announced that they’re selling reprints for $50:
Your ticket there. And if you don’t like the ticket you can buy all kinds of other regrettably named “No-Han” merchandise.
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.
