People were mad at the Orioles’ celebration on Wednesday night?

I, like most people, was lost in all of the chaos of Wednesday night. So forgive me if I missed people complaining about the Orioles’ celebrating their walkoff win that eliminated the Red Sox from the postseason.  But according to Steve Melewski of MASN, “some fans and media members were whining about the Orioles celebration.”

Really?  It seems to me that if you’re affiliated with the Red Sox in any way, you pretty much lost your right to complain about this kind of thing for a good long while. Epic collapses will do that.

If Robert Andino gets plunked by Red Sox pitchers next season it would be pretty low rent in my view.

Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports that the Angels have signed 1B/DH Justin Bour to a contract, pending a physical. The Phillies non-tendered Bour last month.

Bour, 30, spent the 2018 season with the Marlins and Phillies, hitting an aggregate .227/.341/.404 with 20 home runs and 59 RBI in 501 plate appearances.

Bour will likely share first base with Albert Pujols, who is coming off of knee and elbow surgeries. Bour could handle right-handers while the 38-year-old Pujols faces lefties.
