Tommy Lasorda and Vin Scully are barely tolerating Psy

67 Comments

I don’t begrudge Psy his 15 minutes of U.S. fame. Even if he’s on minute 24 now. Guy is a legit musician in Korea and if I were him I’d milk it over here like crazy too.

But not everyone feels that way. Here’s a video of his appearance at Dodger Stadium last night. Check out Tommy Lasorda spending 85% of his time in Psy’s presence failing to comprehend what he was seeing and the other 15% of it not approving.  Then listen for Vin Scully’s voice to come on and give the game recap at the end. You can almost hear him rolling his eyes as he begins to speak:

I feel like Lasorda and Scully went out for a beer after the game and had a conversation in which they wondered when, exactly, the world went to complete hell.

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.
