Angels @ Dodgers 08/08/2021 Gamethread

Reid Detmers is thrown into the fire yet again in the series finale in Los Angeles. Oh and the Angels face Walker Buehler who is not having a day off. Anything can happen though, so who knows? A chance to win the series or lose it and tie the season vs the Dodgers this year. Discuss…

We just can’t seem to get more than two games above .500 !!

We reach it then immediately go on a losing streak !

So we throw Detmers to the A’s and then the Dodgers.

Lol. Maybe something like Detroit and Baltimore would have been more advisable

If we were going to do this now, Ohtani in the field. Why not on Friday, and/or Saturday, or every game that he can?

I guess if he makes an error it does not matter but he also might get some experience if a ball is hit his way.

“HELLO!” Joe says “DO. YOU. HEAR. ME? CAN. YOU. UNDERSTAND. ME? ENGLISH OKAY?

spy “I live in Hawaii, we have been a State for over fifty years now.”

Joe “He hung up.”

many many years of nada, and the GOAT not getting what was promised to him will do that to a fan.

LA Angels, ruining careers on a regular basis. SINCE 2003

Ohtani and .100 BA seems wrong.

He’s looked like 2020 Ohtani pretty much since the All Star break.

Unless He was facing a pitcher named Ohtani.

No he doesn’t. It’s the just beard. Adell was worse when he came up the first time

His head down slumped body language looks like a guy that has zero confidence.

I like Adells’ back foot on his swing. I like he not move it like that and I like that he keeps it planted. Maybe he wouldn’t pull everything so hard down the line. Three, at least, like that this season

Gives me hope that Marsh will make adjustments next year when he’s up for good

Marsh pulls the, tries, outside pitches, and he, tries, going oppo with the inside pitches.

Who came up with this style of play?

Ahh yes, the benefits and wonders of having an actual Baseball Ops division

If he was Tony Soprano we’d have better results

We’d have better results with an actual soprano instead of Arte’s Billboard Flunkies

The fact that a “Yes Man” with a pen is our Baseball Ops further drives home the point

You were calling Carp a boss, like he had a plan, or followed traditions. Could and would do things on his own, without permission.

That’s based entirely on the fact that he looks like a goodfella, not on his actual power in the org

Mayers in. Normally I would panic but this game is a lost cause already.
