Gosselin isn’t a freakin’ big leaguer…I HATE THIS TEAM

Pujols keying on a single pitch and flying open on every swing….year after year of watching him do that because of the lost bat speed…it is so frustrating to watch

This exact post could’ve been from 2015.

Whoa! I see .167 next to Rojas’s name: he’s gotten a major league hit?

Probably. I’d like to remind that announcer that Goofy is also from Anaheim, and to shaddup already.

This Angels reliever is perfect, because…

—wait for it…

It “hoyts” to follow the Angels.

Glad to see that Maddon used Pujols baserunning as an opportunity to forcefully explain when to take risks on the bases.

Trying to take the extra base when you’re down by seven in the late innings is just smart baseball.

Counterfactual, but if Joe doesn’t leave glorified BP pitcher Rowan in to cough up that 3-run jack to Meadows, now it’s a 5-3 game.

Nevermind. I just read what I wrote and I sound like an idiot. Please disregard. T/y!

Rowan grooves another, but the marine layer stopped it at the deepest part of the park.
He isn’t very good.

PERFECT! 8-1 reflects the true nature of this game.

I mean, I know we’ve mostly all given up, but it would be nice if the manager didn’t. No reason for Rowen to still be in there for that at bat.

Rowen just needs Martin to complete this Laugh In.

Remember that 7-4 start to the season. Those were good times. If the Angels lose tonight, that will be a 6-11 record since then.
