At this point, it’s a mental armor. This is the story of Anthony Landon (Los Angeles Angels), who misses more games due to injury almost every year.
Landon was one of the key players in the Washington Nationals’ 2019 World Series victory. That earned him a seven-year, $245 million contract with the Angels.
However, every year since signing, he’s been plagued by injuries, both major and minor. He hasn’t played more than 60 games out of 162.
This season is no exception. In just 43 games, he’s hit two home runs. His batting average is just .236. He’ll miss the rest of the season due to injury.
In addition to being a “nuisance” to the team on the field, he’s also been a problem off the field. This season, he was suspended for an altercation with a fan.바카라사이트
His relationship with the media is terrible. Landon deliberately avoids reporters who ask him questions about his injuries. The Angels have been silent about Landon’s injury at the club level.
After a game against the Baltimore Orioles on May 5, Landon reportedly said, “I don’t speak English today,” and left the clubhouse when asked about his injury status by a reporter.
In another instance, when asked “how are you feeling today,” Landon said, “I’m not here,” and left the clubhouse.
When asked about his injured wrists, he said, “I have two,” and held up both hands.
“The Angels’ $245 million investment in Landon is a ‘sunk cost,'” one outlet sarcastically wrote. The Angels are spending a lot of money and being ridiculed for it.
