The season is winding down, and it has been now-or-never for a while now for the Angels. They don’t show up.
Angels Lineup: Fletcher 4, Walsh 3, Trout 8, Rendon 5, Pujols 10, Upton 7, Stassi 2, Adell 9, Simmons 6. Bundy 1.
Dbacks Lineup: Rojas 10, VanMeter 4, Walker 3, Calhoun 9, Escobar 5, Peralta 7, Ahmed 6, Vogt 2, Varsho 8. Smith 1.
If anyone thinks we will go 10/0 the rest of the way, more power to you but I think that with this loss we are officially out of the race and having another loosing season
yes, I think that’ll do it. Good. It will save us stress, going forward. Now I just hope Trout gets hot.
I’m almost hoping for 0-10 in the hope of getting to a more favorable position draftwise. Honestly, this is frustrating: we are not good enough to make the playoffs, but not so bad that we draft at the top, year after year
Sadly, I think this was the game for me too. I was really trying to press the optimism, but it’s time to truly throw in the towel. I’ll gladly eat crow if they surprise us, but until then, I’ll be watching other games more often than not.
That inning is on Maddon letting Adell come to the plate.
100% Are they trying to see how many 2 and 3 K games he can have in a shortened season? Where’s Ward? He’s been figuring it out finally. Even Ohtani would have been somewhat better.
The Adell experiment needs to end until the minor leagues pick back up.
Good thing we didnt give up on Baria yet!
BB up Oakland would’ve stole him.
gosh, this is frustrating.
Where’s the PH , Maddon?
been chances, lol
This team can’t take care of business ( beating other bad teams ) 😣 😣
Summer of 2019 all over again after Tyler Skaggs passing.
And now the difference is the Sandavol bad inning
or could it be that Pujols and Adell have made 4 outs each against pitching the rest of the team is handling?
Rendon has hit the ball hard twice. Hope this one drops in.
Nice to see Trout get a CLUTCH hit.
a single would get us close
come on, Trouty!
So it looks like the Angels have really found something with Walsh. I mean anyone that can be this outstanding has to have some beneficial level of talent going forward right?
I wish they’d just commit to playing more of their young guys. Ward has a 1045 OPS the last two weeks with a 3 BB and only 5 K and that’s w/o hitting a homer. So he’s doing a good job in a limited sample recently. How about we just let him play and see what he can do, I mean he’s 26. Just let him play.
Rengifo should be playing more too. He’s struggling but I think he could be a good player going forward too. I mean we know Pujols isn’t going to be the answer at age 44. Just let him rot on the bench.
I’m out on Rengifo. He’s had his chances.
He’s 23 and even last year more than held his own.
I call him RengIFFYo for a reason: both his fielding and his hitting are iffy at best. I would give him more credit if he defense was sound but it’s not.
Angels desperately want Pujols to get past Willie Mays then they’ll stop starting him
Do you think there’s any chance Pujols just ups and quits at 661. He can’t be having any fun. He has to know he’s an anchor on this team.
30 million reasons he won’t
He likes being a part of the all-time hitters lists.
I would hope the Angels would offer some deferred deal to let him retire gracefully before next season. Probably wishful thinking
He already has a 10 mil personal services contract after this is over
I know but spread his other 30 million across those years too
Will the league and the union allow it
So tomorrow we can have Ohtani DH, Albert at 1st, Adell in RF and Ward in LF
Oh and Rengifo at 2nd
I miss Franklin Barreto
did the Angels dfa him already. Man he was horrible.
Gubi man. Every time he mentions “Sandoval could get his first win” … bash bash …
We listened to him saying Albert will get 660 for a month
I don’t ever remember seeing batting practice in the middle of a game before.
Is this your first time watching the Angels?
Maybe an inning too long for Sandoval
Good for 1 time through the order
Kole Napoli’d us
Add to KC to the list of former Angels that own us.
