Remember this?

Well, there was no post-game write-up, so I thought I’d produce this quick fanpost with a photo for us to dwell upon and to provide a space for the pent-up frustration so many of us are feeling towards the team and the organization.

That was on my wedding anniversary, Aug 18th, 2009. A good way into the season, all 9 hitters had at least 200 AB.

That’s a great photo, those guys did not strike out much and were in constant movement on the bases. Fun times.

Lucky for those guys. They got to face a ton of lesser pitchers

I remember that day. Mickey Hatcher – the batting coach – took the picture. Angels were on national TV that day.

The Angels made the playoffs six times when Mickey Hatcher was the pitching coach and only once in the eight seasons since he was fired.

Yes and he never forced his hitters to only throw sliders.

Better chance of fielding a sub .200 team nowadays.
