Anthony Rendon is here, hopefully to provide length to the lineup. Andrelton Simmons’s state is unknown, although he seems likely that he will have to go to the IL. Can we end 2020 on a high note (if it ends here) and beat those pesky Mariners?
Mariners Lineup: Long Jr. 4, White 3, Lewis 8, Seager 5, Lopes 10, Nola 2, Crawford 6, Moore 7, Smith 9
Angels Lineup: Fletcher 6, Trout 8, Rendon 5, Upton 7, Ohtani 10, Pujols 3, La Stella 4, Stassi 2, Ward 9, Sandoval SP
Light that Baby Up as the Big “A” shines it light in the Western sky tonight
Great! Let’s start winning ballgames!
The body on Vogelbach is something you’d read about in Moneyball.
Nice to win the home opener. LTBU!
Vogelbach looks like every frat bro I ever met
LIGHT UP THE HALO!!!!
Just Another Halos Victory!!!
[Standing and clapping — insert Manly GIF here]
I expect we’ll win this but I hate feeling uneasy even when we’re 8 up
Red and I were briefly chatting about the 2015 draft down thread. The dreaded “Taylor Ward” draft.
Chew on this for a second: In the top ten rounds of that draft, guess who has the fourth highest WAR to date?
David Fletcher, chosen with the last pick of the sixth round.
It’s like the Angels had a top five draft pick in 2015 and didn’t miss.
that might be a “fun fact”
but then again wouldn’t that mean all the other mlb teams had a dreaded (player x) draft?
It was a miserable draft class. The Angels, in retrospect, did little wrong by selecting Taylor Ward at #26.
Agreed. It would’ve been nice to have Soroka a couple picks later but who could’ve known that he would turn out well. First round HS pitchers are always risky bets.
I’m putting an autographed Fletcher ball in my beneath-the-TV credenza Halo Shrine. Bobbleheads, baseball cards, rally monkeys. That kid is amazing.
Show us no Moore.
Let’s see what Major Key can do.
Better than fair to Middleton
Houston and Oakland lost so we’ll move up a game in the standings
Not yet. Yeah, it’s against the M’s, but this is the ANGELS we are talking about. The team of Buttercup.
not to worry. I called ballgame awhile ago
Calling ballgame is only valid when we are down early.
(As Lana pointed out)
I call ballgame on both sides. Im consistent that way
If they lose after you call ballgame, it’s your fault.
*when they’re ahead
heh. I’ll take that.
I remember I called ball game during at the 8th inning in Houston last year and I got shushed big time lol.. (yes we still won)
I keep to a rule and stick to it. Yes its not perfect.. but its solid
I guess Maddon agrees with you. The kids are in.
The Mariners are really bad. I’m not too worried
That last pitch was pretty Grotz….
I’m trying. Of course, Mia would say that I’m VERY trying…
We all have our moments!
I would like to play Seattle a lot
If Pujols is Grandpa, does that make Upton the other Grandpa?
He’s the eldest uncle.
I wanted to try Cersei because he cut his hand on a wineglass, but it’s been a while…
I heard this Rendon guy is pretty good.
