Give or take a couple years, the Angels usually start out the season slow and come alive after a month or so. Why should we think it be any different in a covid season. Just when you’re ready to accept Tank mode, the Angels will start to show up.
Edit: “The Angels showed up” by sweeping the Astros! Is the team starting to gel? Will Upton be streaky hot all month long after slumping the first month? Is Rendon ready to take his seat at the table? Is Angels pitching not as bad as we thought? Is the bullpen coming around? Or are we in for the Buttercup of a 12th-13th pick while missing the playoffs by one game? This article was written before the Astros series and now edited to include this 2002 comeback Angels squad that has taken the field in the last 4 games. Does this team have fight in them? Will Fletcher further add to this new fighting team? Is watching Angels Baseball going to be fun again? Yes!
The Angels were seemingly out of it and written off. They were trade deadline sellers and are now the topic of what if. I for one am ready for an Angels run.
Lets stop wasting Trout! Some fantastic plays and clutch hits have rejuvenated this lay back Joe team. I’m ready for the “Mad”don Team. It’s great to see the clubhouse jumping from their reclined seats. The upcoming schedule is light and hopefully the Padres and Dodgers are already in it and start to rest players at the end of our schedule.
Do we have a chance? (Insert Dumber and Dumber meme here)
Ladies and gentlemen… We have a chance!
