I’m painfully reminded after every victory that this team has blown 13 saves. Convert 10 of those and they’re the best team in the AL. Sigh.

If anyone can lend the Rangers a helping hand it’s Milner.

Even Walsh’s outs are hit hard.

Trying to hit them out of Candlestick was close to impossible. Imagine how many Mays would of had playing in Boston or McCovey in Yankee Stadium.

How would you like to be Stassi? Stand back buddy.

WTF, the book may say up and in to Upton, but getting hit this much is just wrong, he’s going to get really hurt and hitting only .200.

Leave it to Albert to make sure as he goes out he keeps us from a better coming in.

They’ll keep Albert in because he is so much closer to A-Rod now

Every home run he hits convinces Maddon to stick his rally killing butt in the lineup.

For one, Ohtani, who have the ugly average as well but can run and out some pressure in the defense.! Tired of the ground ball out by 30’. Get Ohtani on track, it is in his head right now.

Terry Smith and Mark Langston still think we’re in a playoff race

I was thinking if this were game 154 (8 left after tonight) and we were still within 4 1/2 games of a playoff spot we’d think we *were* still in it.

Angels 13 baserunners, 3 runs. Texas, 6 baserunners, 2 runs so far. Trouty having a terrible game, stranding guys.
