The World Series Champion Washington Nationals and third baseman Anthony Rendon have parted ways.
From the Washington Post:
Anthony Rendon and the Los Angeles Angels have agreed to a seven-year, $245 million deal, according to a person with knowledge of the situation, a move that sends the Washington Nationals into next season without a foundational piece of their World Series team.
I don’t understand why anyone would want to play for the Angels. They pretend to play in Los Angeles, but they really don’t. They play in Anaheim across the street from Disneyland. When I was a kid growing up in Southern California, they were the California Angeles.
Then in 2005, they renamed themselves the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. It just rolls off the tongue, right? Finally, in 2016 they shortened the team’s name to simply the Los Angeles Angels. Coincidently, they’ve enjoyed a losing record ever since they changed their name to a lie.
Why would Anthony Rendon want to go to a team with a losing record?
I think it’s strange that a player of Anthony Rendon caliber would want to leave the World Series Champion Washington Nationals and go to a team with a fake name and a losing record. It’s Rendon’s life and he’s the one who has to live it.
I was hoping he was going to return to the Nationals. The team reportedly offered him over $200 million to stay with the Nats. I guess that wasn’t good enough. The extra $45 million the not-Dodgers will pay him will ensure his grandchildren’s great-grandchildren will never have to work a day in their lives. Without it, they would most likely have to get jobs like regular people.
Personally, I hate that this happened. I love the Nats and I hate the Angels. I’m a fan of Rendon’s and will always appreciate what he did for the team. If he had to leave, I wish he had gone somewhere other than the Angels.
Angel fans are weird and not in a good way
Not only do I dislike the Angels, but I also don’t like Angels fans either. There’s always been something a tad bit different about them. How can they live in Southern California and not be Dodgers fans? I’ve always assumed most Angel fans were banned from Dodgers Stadium for doing something illegal in the men’s room and putting their mouths directly on the mustard pump at the concessions stand.
Now Anthony Rendon will be playing for those weirdos and a team that cannot read a map. I hope he knows what he’s doing.
