(AP Photo/Ben Margot)ExpandQ: Angels fans are already saying Shohei Ohtani is a bust, but I’m not shocked about this coming from our fan base. But what is your take on his Spring Training? – Jared G. BrassA: Spring training is a whole different ballgame from the regular season. I think he showed some flashes of his talent as a pitcher. I don’t think he is going to be a dominant starter right away, but the same would be true even if he had a good spring. It’s just spring training. As a hitter, there are more questions. He certainly had fewer encouraging moments, but it’s still too early to judge him.I will add that he didn’t really get hit hard in spring training. In that Rockies game he gave up five singles that were not hit very hard. His biggest problem is his control, and part of that could be the difficulty in throwing a splitter in Arizona. I think it’s fair to stick with his talent and not be swayed by his ERA over 13 innings pitched with minor leaguers playing defense behind him, in thin, dry air. Just keep evaluating him as you get more info from major league games. A: They have Nick Tropeano and Parker Bridwell as 7th, 8th starters. They also believe Jaime Barria will be ready soon. John Lamb even showed some promise in the spring. I don’t think they’ll have the best rotation in the majors (or even their division, with the Astros) but they should have enough depth to contend, when combined with their offense and defense.Q: When will Andrew Heaney be back? Will he start in AAA? – Adam KnoxA: Too early to say. He threw a bullpen Tuesday, so he presumably isn’t far off. I would expect him to make a rehab start at Triple-A before he pitches in the majors.Q: Based off spring and other factors, who proved themselves to be the most consistent 6th starter for the halos for the season: Bridwell, Tropeano, or Ramírez? – Rob AspinallA: Since Tropeano is coming off Tommy John surgery and hasn’t pitched in the majors in a year and a half, it’s probably reasonable to let him get his legs under him at Triple-A. As for the other two, both performed well last year and for most of the spring. Ramirez has better stuff and is out of options, so it’s easy to make the case to go with him first. I am sure Bridwell will be up at some point, perhaps by April 12 (when they need a 6th starter).Our LA Angels coverage for this season can be found hereQ: Who will be the Halo closer in 2018? – Art CastroA: Blake Parker probably gets the first shot. However, I think it’s likely that Cam Bedrosian, and maybe even Jim Johnson, get some saves at some point. I doubt any of them will go wire to wire.Q: What has Blake Wood ever done to earn a roster spot? I really don’t understand him ever having been a lock for the roster, and I don’t understand him making the roster either. Sure, *Spring Training stats. But his regular season stats are terrible too … – Matt RuddA: The Angels like his strikeout rate (10.2 strikeouts per nine innings last year). Blake Parker’s numbers in the majors weren’t very impressive before last year, but the Angels saw something they liked.Q: Total win prediction? I say 92. Why do other columnists think they’ll only improve by 4-5 games? – Tim McMahanA: I think anything from 85 to 93 is possible. I think it’s hard to project them for too much of an improvement until we’ve seen the starters stay healthy. Also, it remains to be seen how effective the bullpen will be.Q: How long will Chris Carter stay at Triple-A? I really thought he had a great spring overall and is a proven threat. – Gary FelderA: The Angels got him mostly as insurance if someone gets hurt, so I suppose he’ll be there until someone gets hurt. Any injury to Albert Pujols, Jefry Marte or Luis Valbuena could get Carter to the majors.Editor’s note: Some questions may have been edited for clarity.Related Articles Angels’ Mike Trout working on his defense, thanks to Twitter Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Jose Suarez’s rocky start sinks Angels in loss to Astros Angels’ poor pitching spoils an Albert Pujols milestone Angels’ Shohei Ohtani spending downtime working in outfield Q: Are the Angels privately concerned that Ohtani can’t hit? – Adam KnoxA: Not that I’ve heard. But plenty of scouts and other observers had reservations about his hitting, even before this spring. The bottom line is if Ohtani is a good pitcher, I think the anything he does offensively is a bonus. The Angels see him as a pitcher first.Q: Will Billy Eppler and Mike Scioscia put Ohtani in AAA if he becomes a liability around late May/early June? – Jorel AlfonsoA: I don’t know when this might happen, but I am sure they’ll be evaluating him every day. If they get to the point that sending him down is best for the team and for Ohtani, I’m sure they’ll do it.Q: Jeff, do u think the Angels’ rotation will hold up throughout the season? If not, who do you think they could bring up from the minors who’s MLB ready? – Christopher Brown Angels offense breaks out to split doubleheader with Astros last_img read more

4 reasons Richa Chadha should stick to ethnic attires

first_imgWithout beating around the bush about how utterly majestic the week-long event, Lakme Fashion Week Winter/Festive 2017 was, let’s get to the point–Richa Chadha was a vision in white on the ramp.While we have no complaints about the way she carries western outfits, we’re a little inclined towards just how ravishing she looks in Indian apparels. The actress was a picture of poise in a radiant white saree at Lakme Fashion Week 2017, and we clearly can’t get over her look.In a self-embroidered, white saree, Richa looked splendid as she demonstrated the power of subtle Indian dressing that can overshadow almost every other outfit. Adding a touch of sensuality to her graceful look, she wore a strapless blouse, and got us swooning over the sexy-yet-classy look.Photo: Yogen Shah Being undeniably in love with the mesmerising appearance she made, we want Richa to stick to Indian ensembles. This is why:1. Richa looked like a star in the shimmery, baby-pink lehenga she wore for Eid celebrations. The smoothness of the colours, blended with bits of glimmer on the ensemble, looked so perfect on this beauty.Picture courtesy: Instagram/therichachadha Also Read: Esha Gupta’s floral suit will give you early mid-week blues2. Richa redefined elegance for us when she sported a plain, black anarkali suit with embroidered sleeves, and a booti dupatta to finish the look. The outfit was minimal to bits, and Richa looked class-apart in it.Picture courtesy: Instagram/therichachadha 3. Looking at Richa clad in a bewitching, white lehenga with a blingy-silver choli was all we needed to fall for this diva. While the net lehenga looked heavenly, the choli added a touch of sexiness to this lustrous Indian attire.advertisementPicture courtesy: Instagram/therichachadha Also Read: Taapsee Pannu just wore socks with heels, and we cannot keep calm4. As basic as it sounds to rock floral-print sarees, Richa pumped up the look by teaming a glistening, gold blouse with hers. The actress wore a lively, green saree with a sequinned blouse at Cannes Film Festival 2015, and showed the world how glamorous Indian attires can look.Picture courtesy: Instagram/therichachadhalast_img read more
