Angels @ Red Sox 05/15/2021 Gamethread

Dylan Bundy looks to bounce back as the lineup is shaken up. Walsh off day. Will this be the answer to the offensive woes? Can Bundy get a win this year? Can Boston just stop it already? Martín Pérez goes for the Red Sox.

Just another halo meltdown!!!

so….which sounds worse? Since our 7-3 start….

we are 9-19

or

we’ve lost 19 of 28.

Today was embarrassing. No hitting, no pitching. The epitome of a last place team.

Not saying the Angels would consider trading Trout, but if they did (theoretically) I would think the acquiring team would have to agree to take on Upton’s and maybe Rendon’s contract as well. That way the team can do a rebuild. Arte would never let it happen though

As much as Trout sucks right now, there is no way I can see them trading him. Anything can happen over the next 9 years.

But nothing has happened in the last nine years to make us think anything will be different (team playing wise) over the next 9.

As someone who has watched this game since the early ’80’s I can tell you that things can change very fast. This team just needs a new mindset. A lot of these players are on one year deals set to expire at the end of the season. Trade some of them at the deadline. Get some prospects into the farm system for a change. Then in the offseason go out and get good pitching. There will be plenty of that on the open market. Unlike the last few offseasons.

I’m not worried about Trout at all. He’ll be fine.

who’s going to oversee the rebuild? Do you have faith in Perry? Or the guy who hired Perry?

Yup, not going to defend the Mookie trade by any stretch because it was horrible, but they’ve found their own gems in Eovaldi turning out decent, Matt Barnes suddenly having a good season, and Devers has really developed from being a prospect to being a stud.

He needs a full work up…blood, eyes, colonoscopy, mental evaluation, neurological exam,
psychological therapy, financial advisor too, explaining that more money is good.

With the evil in the World right now. I believe if they changed their name to the Devils they would start winning championships right away. Time to get rid of the name Angels.

Yes….my guess is they need to cycle down every once in while, that is why they had that long down stretch. Starting to win again because they are getting their fix now, and Albert will get his first taste.

I just realized that Pujols has a 10 year service commitment once he retires. Don’t be surprised if he is the next manager of this team. I would say in about 3 years.

Screw it. Trade them all and go for a complete rebuild, farm system and all. I mean, sure they won’t win for a while, but it can’t be worse than this crap.
