NO!!!! They can’t, but they can sneak into the playoffs if can go on a tear like last season after the death of Tyler Skaggs in a abbreviated 60 game season.

Wow I finally made it here from Halos Heaven. Watching this was fun, but did you all have something to drink? This team isn’t going to the playoffs lol. This is borderline worst team in the league. Are you 3 going to have a trade deadline special? I think trading Bundy might be a good idea.

The only one of us drinking on this had the lowest odds of this team going to the playoffs. Brent is always our optimistic one though!

l love it when l can read or hear you folks talk Angels and about baseball. Yes we will indeed make the POs. Bundy is so far Billy Boyz second best trade behind that of Simmons (Boy oh Boy do l miss Simba even if he is not 2017 Simba). Jo Adell has to many things wrong with his swing starting with his head and eyes. He may fix some holes and become productive. l would like to fess up here though, l never had confidence that Stassi would be this productive.

Dylan Bundy has been a huge upgrade for this rotation. I was just hoping he could go 6+ innings consistently without giving up more than 4 or 5 runs.
Jo Adell – kid just needs reps and he will adjust. I am a fan of Goodwin too, if he doesn’t stick with the team he could get them some pitching help as he has value.
The 2020 Angels are probably pretenders, if they sneak into the playoffs it will probably be a one series and done experience. But, that is something they can build from if they can shore up the starting rotation.
Sanity Clause does a great job as moderator.

These guys agree with you, but I’m not so convinced.

One Man Gang in the whole pitching staff ( both starters and relievers )
Yeah I admit that Dylan Bundy has been remarkable thus far. In this crazy strange 2020 covid 19 season I’ll take a sneaky backdoor last playoff spot even with a losing record. Hopefully the offense will go on a wild 3 week long tear soon including Justin Upton. You guys gotta admit Max Stassi has been way better than you thought.
