Look at that smile, those dreamy eyes. Step right up, ladies.

Gio has only been in D.C. for a couple of months now and probably hasn’t had much time to meet women, so, heck, why not twitter. Still, one of his followers has a better idea. The gala is the Nationals sponsored Dream Gala 2012 and includes a silent auction, among other things.

There. Everybody wins.

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.
