Mariners at Angels 07/30/2020 Gamethread

Mike Trout is on paternal leave now so it is a Troutless lineup as the Angels look to face Houston with a series win at least.

SS Fletcher CF Goodwin 3B Rendon LF Upton DH Ohtani 1B Pujols RF Ward C Stassi 2B Rengifo SP Bundy

Seattle has SS Crawford LF Lopes CF Lewis 3B Corey’s brother 1B Marmolejos 2B Long Jr. DH Vogelbach RF Smith C Hudson SP Gonzales

Let us hope for an Angel win and that Maddon lets Bundy throw 7.

True! Stranger things have happened! It’s pretty much like we’ve all said before, you can just stay in the running, all you need is to get hot at the right time.

really? We lost 8-5. 2-5 record, which prorated out to 162 games is 5.4-13.5 or pretty close to 6-14.

Sorry I edited. I meant with the injury because I was watching the box score and it popped up after Pujols’s at bat

Let’s say the Angels get swept by the Astros and the Angels are 2-8. I’d actually be hoping Trout just stays home with his family. Get us that Vanderbilt pitcher with our horrible season and pretend 2020 never happened.

Does Arte think that at bats where Rendon gets to hit are l0x more important than the ones where Mayers, Milner and Keller pitch?

I don’t really think Arte was fully committed in the Cole bidding. I think he preferred having a bat all along. Offense sells tickets.

But it doesn’t win.

Man, I thought getting into the playoffs with 16 teams was a given… but damn this is just the same shitty team Ausmus managed

I’m prejudiced. I’m a Maddon fan. So I’m blaming Billy.

This whole mess is 99.9% Arte.

Agree. Can we start a petition pleading for Arte to sell the team?

It does happen — Knicks fans started one for Dolan in New York.

I want to like Maddon but our 20th through 30th best players are getting way too much playing time right now

What’s with all the SBs? Is Premium II out of the game?
