Youth is Served: Angels Win 11-3

Jo Adell and Brandon Marsh shared a Major League outfield for the first time tonight and hopefully gave us a glimpse of the future.

Adell made his presence felt early. He drew a walk and stole a base his first time up. Then, in his second plate appearance came his first MLB hit of 2021, a 2 run double.

Marsh cracked a long double to centerfield in the top of the sixth. He was denied an RBI due to a great relay by Texas which cut down Jose Iglesias trying to score.

Marsh came around to score on a bomb by Captain Jack. At that point the score was 6-1 and the only question was how many Cishek would give back.

The score was 6-1 heading to the bottom of the sixth because Jose Suarez had pitched very well. The wheels started to come off in the sixth as a lead off double was followed by a one out bomb, bringing the score to 6-3. He would get one more out, tying his longest MLB appearance, and be pulled giving up 3 runs and 6 hits. He struck out 6 while only walking 1.

Youth wasn’t the only reason for the W. Phil Gosselin’s first three plate appearances ended in RBI singles.

Adell added an RBI single following Goose’s third RBI single in the bottom of the 7th to stretch the lead to 8-3.

And the kid wasn’t done, adding another double in the tip of the 9th. By then the game was well in hand at 10-3.

Light up the Halo! Ohtani on the mound tomorrow.

Adell’s plate discipline during his first at-bat impressed me. Now, of course, he is going to face a lot better pitchers but let’s hope that he is improving as a hitter. I would love to see a Trout, Marsh, and Adell outfield in 2022 with everyone healthy and hitting. Then have a double play combination of Fletcher at SS and Stefanic at 2B. Toss in Walsh at 1B and the Angels would have six of their 9 as homegrown players.

Then, we have a young starting pitching staff of Ohtani, Sandoval, C-Rod, Suarez, Detmers, and Barria. Who knows about the bullpen.

Very surprised by the performance of Adell. Hopefully there is more of this to come going forward. The Angels need this so bad

The Plumber got 2 more hits including a home run tonight . Time to bring up Mikey to man 3B. Lets get the 2022 party really underway.

Mayfield had to go and buy himself more time with his HR….maybe dump one of our 20 pitchers, starters are going 6 now. They are short infielders, bring him up.

Free Michael Stefanic!

Annnndd… the Astros beat the Dodgers. I enjoyed it. It was like watching a guy whose been a dick and a bully in our hood for decades run face first into another bully and get shut out. The Astros “cheated” the Angels out of absolutely nothing cause we sucked then. They ate the Yankees and Dodgers fans hearts though and it’s lovely to see.

Cool quote from Jo:

“For me, over these 70 or so games in Salt Lake, along with some Spring games, I started to figure out how I’m going to be successful in certain situations, and what pitches I actually can handle very well versus the ones that I think I can hit very well.”

You see, being sent down to AAA and given steady ABs looks like it has helped him mentally. One game is not enough to chase his demons away but it is a good start.

I’m not sure why any Astros fan would ven step foot there… the team should’ve pulled a TB Lightning and not allow any away team gear to be worn.

That’s what I thought, gloves are tricky……friendly photo bomb.

Or, he was just calling his shot before his ROCKET 2 RBI double……
let’s go with that.

Yeah…. Adell seems a little too much country gentleman style to just throw a finger up for a cell phone random photo. He’s also fairly social media active, so even if he is a flip the bird kind of guy I bet he’s fairly aware of this stuff going out.

So maybe, just maybe, we have an actual starting pitching staff, not exactly world-shattering but not a dumpster fire?

Okay so Upton-Trout-Adell to start 2022, Upton hits .150 in April, and on May 16th, we release Upton and call up Marsh for good.

I’m pretty confident, Upton will not be at spring training next year. He can hook up with Albert and the Halo’s can pay his salary too.

His contract and NTC make me feel pretty confident you are wrong.

NTC doesn’t mean shit when 90% of the players with a NTC wave it

They wave it if it’s in their best interest. So how’s that working for Upton in May next year?

Upton will waive a NTC or face the ignominy of a DFA anyway.

If we are paying Upton anyway, he is still a better bat off the bench than Lagares, Eaton, etc.

But yes, hoping for that OF of Trout, Marsh and Adell. If we can be confident with that we have money to get a starting pitcher and some bullpen help (and maybe a SS, if we don’t keep Iglesias)

Upton will be bought out of his NTC and will be a Pujols “addition by subtraction” move during the offseason.
