Okay this shit hole of a season ends tomorrow. One more day of me complaining and then we can all rest.

Angels suck right now, why get worked up? Maddon doing Maddoning things. SMH.

Rejoice…Fletch got a hit tonight! He’s alive. Meanwhile, Shohei put this game away in his memory bank, reason 238, to play out his option.

I would rather have Boston and NYY lose tomorrow and us beat Seattle. I’d rather have the Ms out because they lost.

Me too, but they will be out one way or another. I don’t see them getting to the WC game. The Angels are a bad team, the Blue Jays, Red Sox and Yankees are not.

Not excited by any means. See my prior posts. Look at what the Angels have accomplished compared to the Mariners. Being stupidly excited over a team that has accomplished nothing in 45 years and acting like they just won a W.S. is crazy.

I see nothing wrong with being fired up with a chance to kick down the door in get into the playoffs. Jealous they have a meaningful game 161.

Do you really honestly think that the Mariners would go anywhere against those 3 other teams. The A’s and Angels are just bad teams. I guess you weren’t here in 1995. I want revenge.

I don’t know why anybody here wants to see Seattle in the playoffs. I hate Boston but they’re not out competition nor do they employ shit head Dipoto. Get over your AL East insecurity and focus on your division. Beat Seattle not a question . Great to see who sucks in the crunch tune like Seasick

Okay, this is just a blow up in a meaningless game for the Angels. Mariners still haven’t won anything and at least won’t clinch anything against us.

In the complete annuals of Angel lore I’m not sure there has ever been a pitcher as ineffective as Cheese Shit where the Angels brought him back the following year. Why change history now?

There is a day that never existed because it mattered or would have if it existed. Tonight would have joined it but tonight doesn’t matter. Still, it’s similar or would have been If that other day existed, which it doesn’t

Results, oh you mean like Scioscia underachieving for a decade?

Fizzing out in the ALDS with great talent time after time and then shitting the bed with a team comprised of legendary rookie Trout, Torii Hunter, Weaver, Pujols, Kendrys, Trumbo etc

Maddon would have taken that team to the series.

This game is completely on Maddon. Taking guys out when it’s clear they are done. Trying to make a AAAA pitcher go through a lineup 3 times. Seeing Cishek has no command and letting him stay out there.

Goose has an OPS barely above 600 for the ENTIRE 2nd half and he’s still batting 3rd everyday. Until the Angels start making changes much quicker than they ever have they are going to be looking up at the competition in the standings.

Here’s the problem with what you are saying; who in the hell are you going to replace those people with? Huh?

We already know that Joe has said Raisel will pitch the 9th and 9th ONLY. So no, you can’t go to him early.

And flipping Walsh with Goose is not a real solution since you then weaken the important cleanup spot.

But Goose is the fastest runner on the team

I’m talking about lineup construction from the very beginning of the season. They literally played scrap heap with the bullpen by just offering guys 1M that they knew other teams hadn’t scooped up. They never get any depth pieces because Arte spends foolishly. He SHOULD have gone over payroll this year knowing Pujols was coming off and he only has so many years of Trout left. He didn’t. This is the result.

and when you KNOW someone is bad you just keep throwing people out there and see what sticks. Diaz has actually been pretty good. Certainly someone they could have tried instead of seeing Quintana up a 1.7 WHIP for 2/3 of the season.

Dude. Short of resurrecting murderers row there was no way to recover from the injuries to our offense. No Trout No Rendon No Upton (if he was effective). Can’t build for that unless you have super powers of some sort.

I’m not saying they should have won the division. I’m saying they should have actually spent a bit of money on the bullpen this year instead of playing pick up the pieces nobody wants. I’m saying they should f’ing realize by now Gosslin will NEVER be part of any successful team going forward. He’s sucked the entire 2nd half. Yet there he is every game. When things are working you make changes. The Angels are always way too slow on that front. I think we all could have told them Q wasn’t worth starting but for whatever reason there he was being given the ball far too frequently.

Well,THAT is a different story.

I totally agree with you on roster construction. But that is not on Joe. He can only use the players he is given,

The roster is on Perry (and Eppler for neglecting the farm) and of course Arte for being himself.

I hear you. If Arte’s intestines were twisted in a knot worrying about Trout leaving, it’s worse now with Ohtani. He WILL leave.
