Andrew Heaney’s first pitch was hit for a home run by Jose “Buzzer” Altuve and at that point the game was basically over. Joe Maddon had gutted the lineup and scoring a single run was going to be a challenge. Putting up a crooked number nearly impossible.
When racist Yuli Gurriel cracked a two run bomb later in the inning, the game was truly over. The Astros led 3-0 after one and the Angels never challenged.
How bad was it? The Astros literally pitched a dude named Scrubb and the Angels couldn’t score.
The lone Angel highlight was a sacrifice fly from Drew Butera.
To make things worse, Patrick Sandoval came in and gave up 4 runs in the 8th just to widen the score.
Asterisks 9. Angels split squad 1.
Off day then to Fenway.
One of the worst Angels lineups I can recall in many years
No offense to Ohtani and Walsh
Makes no sense to me why to give off days to Trout, Fletcher, and Upton all on a day before an off day. Particularly, when Rendon is not playing because of injury. It is early May, it is not like the team is exhausted.
EXACTLY what I said (but didn’t post).
Great man-made disasters of the last 125 years.
And there it is! trÅdition!
We have been waiting!
Third worst run differential in the entire league.
It’s early yet but does anyone else feel the season slipping away? In May?
Season so far…..
Wow. That engine is pretty scary,
The AAA lineup didn’t work and Bad Heaney showed up?
I am shocked!
This is awesome
Maddon played his best lineup and had the boys prepared to compete.They tried their very best and came up just a little bit short. Joe needs our support as he does Perry’s bidding. Keep believing, brighter days are ahead.
No chance you typed that with a straight face otherwise I found Arte’s burner account.
Angels batters tonight.&ct=g
Not going to win to many games when we only score 1 run.
Ex: see yesterday’s game
Still 9 runs given up and the dudes that pitched today were probably going to come in regardless of who was in the lineup right?
Does anyone here believe this team will ever make the playoffs as long as Arte has a pulse?
count me out. As long as we skimp on scouting and development we’ll have way too many holes to fill at the MLB level each year so we’ll settle for a pile of meh each year.
The entire org is run bare minimum. Remember all the lay offs they did during covid, most people haven’t been replaced/hired back.
We are a training team for others
Arte simply does not care any more. He cares about his land development deals.
The Angels are a means to an end for him…
I think we’re now officially worse than the McCourt ownership fiasco up the 5 freeway a few years back
That’s saying alot, but you could be right. In fact, Arte was hanging with Frank recently if I am not mistaken…
Birds of a feather flock together.
Try Jeffrey Loria or Donald Sterling.
