Mike Trout and the Angels are going to end up looking exactly like Aaron Rodgers and Green Bay. You cut the half a billion dollar centerpiece of your franchise’s mentor/best friend and you don’t even give him a heads up. You release a hall of famer and you don’t even talk to your team about it. Not before he is released and not after. Instead, you let rumors and gossip to rule the day, you let your players stew in frustration and anger, and you once again remind all of MLB and the national media why this franchise is considered the biggest joke in American professionals sports. Go to hell Mr. Arte.

Looking like Aaron and the Packers sounds f-ing fantastic to me! Winning baseball, the Playoffs every year AND always a chance to win a title ……where do I sign up for that?

Man, the Angels are the worst. I hate being a fan of this team. This Pujols issue is just the latest black eye for this club. I understand the guy needed to be released, as he has been below replacement level for 5+ years. But the way the F/O handled it is just ridiculous. They embarrass themselves again nationally while alienating the guys on their roster. How they could screw up the Pujols situation this badly speaks to the sheer incompetence of the people running this damn franchise. I HATE being an Angel fan!

Trout was trying to channel his inner Pujols with a meaningless late inning home run.

I feel so bad for Ohtani. He pitched so well and deserved a lot better.

He’s right in line with the rest of the staff walking the first guy he sees.

With the Angels bullpen – one minute can be 4 runs

It’s early, but I’ve seen enough of Joe Maddon’s crappy decisions and our blowpen to know we won’t make it past .500 this year

Pujols critique of Maddon seems about right

I think Maddon just has too much trust in some of “his guys”

Plus Trout did nothing all night. Just sat there and pouted about Pujols being gone. I wish I had that luxury to pout and make 500 million dollars.

Honestly don’t understand the mentality someone would have to criticize Trout for something like this. You do you, though

Trout has done nothing either night. Maybe that’s how he’s protesting the departure of Pujols.

Shame that an anti-Japanese racist like Gurriel gets the home run on a night when Ohtani pitched so well.

Of course MLB wouldn’t suspend him until after the W.S. Manfred and his piece of shit employees need to take a hike.

Would have sent a better message if he was suspended right away. Putting it off until after the world series seems counter productive.

That’s ballgame.

Joe was a coward and didn’t leave ohtani in. I’d rather have ride or died with him
