LA Angels Weekend News Crash: How Sweep It Is!

If I told you last week the Angels would have a 5-2 homestand, you’d probably think sweep Baltimore and split with Cleveland. Looking at the pitching match ups, I thought every Cleveland game would be tough to win.

The Baltimore series definitely didn’t go as planned. Losing 2 of 3 was an ominous start to the home stand.

Then the Halos went out and laid a beat down on Cleveland. A four game sweep that puts the team at 13-7 and increased our playoff odds to 65%.

How dominant were the Angels? In four games, the Guardians held only one lead, 2-0 on Wednesday, and they held it for only half an inning.

The talk around baseball the last several years has been the lack of pitching for the Angels. This was prior to Ohtani’s start on Wednesday.

It is early, but taking a look around MLB at all the big acquisitions the Angels are doing quite well. And that’s just Thor. Lorenzen, Loup, and Tepera have also been great.

We expected Reid Detmers to be good but need some type to fully develop. It looks like we’re watching that development at the big league level. He had a really nice outing Thursday and had this to say about it:

As far as the offense, the Angels have my favorite type: one capable of producing a different hero each night.

Anthony Rendon is off to a slow start but says he still hasn’t fully regained his lower body strength.

One guy who has been the hero quite a bit is Taylor Ward. This is cool:

And let’s not forget the GOAT. Every year it seems Mike Trout gets better at something. Is he doing it again?

What we’re not covering enough are the arms on the farm. Really. We have pitching talent on the farm. 2021 draftee Chase Silseth is absolutely dealing in AA right now.

Giving credit where it is due, Baseball America pegged Silseth as the Angels draft sleeper before the season began. And he’s gone on to exceed their expectations. With high 90s heat and command of four pitches, he could be the first 2021 Angels draftee to make it to The Show.

Silseth is not alone, either. Bees pitcher Cesar Valdez was named the PCL Pitcher of the Week. Friend of the site Davis Daniel is looking good through his first three AAA starts.

What should be the biggest story around baseball is the baseball itself. MLB changed them again, kind of. Remember, they used two different balls last year.

The balls this year are traveling less, pitchers are saying they are also more slippery. Dudes are getting hit more often. Yes, MLB has reached critical stupidity with the baseball.

The fact each of those phrases leads to a different link shows just how bad this is. I try to not blow hyperbole, but Manfred is truly a massive douche and the worst Commissioner of my lifetime. Thus far. Remember when all thought it couldn’t get worse than Selig?

The only issues with balls under Selig was the steroid guys didn’t actually have any.

Next up are all the Sox. First Chicago then bahstun. Everybody predicted the White Sox to run away with the Central. After an injury filled, disappointing start to the year are they still the favorites?

I say yes. And I’d rather play them now that they are scuffling and facing injuries than later in the year when they are full strength and full bore.

As far as the Roid Sux. Well, we all know how I feel about them. I’d love nothing more than to write next week’s links following another sweep.

Have a great weekend, all.

This is a real bummer. It has gone from a game that was a coinflip for us to win to one I now expect us to lose. In fact, the betting odds jumped from (-125) to (-160) for the White Sox with this move. It is understandable.

That is a substantially longer suspension for bedroom behavior than previous players got for non-bedroom related violence.

As disgusting as Bauer may be, this reeks of the MLB helping the Dodgers avoid the consequences of their large contract rather than fairly enforcing the domestic violence rules.

Have you noticed that team’s mistakes are piling up? That is the speed factor we bring to the table. Teams will make mistakes in rushing a throw, lifting their heads to see the runner and you have “Oops” and even OFer’s holding the ball a few seconds to see where the play should be when multiple runners are on the bases. While we joke speed kills, in baseball that is certainly evident. But in addition to speed is getting on base. Give them to many choices gives us more time for our speed.

GrandpaBaseball

The Angels are easy to get excited about so far for me, and here are some reasons.

We league the American League in: Runs Scored with 99. Normal top 2/3 of the league.

Hits, we are #1. Normal top two thirds of the league.

HRs, we are tied for second w/ Yankees at 25, Toronto is at #1 with 26. Norm top 2/3.

RBI, #1. We have been running middle of the pack for last 6 yrs.

BB (Base on Balls) #2, M’s are #1, When Trout plays we rate top 1/3rd. now Ohtani and Trout and Tony 2 bags are pulling the wagon together.

SB #1…..BA #1…..OBP #1…..SLG #1…..OPS #1,

Now for the down side. We strikeout to much, as we rate #12 of 15 teams.

We are caught stealing to much as we are far and away #1 caught team. That means three things. One is we are not reading the pitcher correctly. Second we a not getting a faster lead and take off. Thirdly which I have observed more than once is the opposing team catcher is always making great throws. Keeping up the pressure is a key as the catcher focuses on the runner more that the batter which will lead to a lot of mistakes going our way.

Remember, to get caught stealing, you have to attempt steals. To my untrained Lyle Eyes, it looks like we’ve been making a lot more attempts, so we’ll get caught more.

One positive, I don’t think the High Octane offense is clicking yet. When we get that monster up and mashing, that will carry us for some time.
I think the pitching is hot and will obviously come back to a more normal orbit, but a crash is way less likely. Way better than last year, we aren’t used to having nice things. We are still burning off the residue of dysfunction from years past. The law firm of Cishek, Claudio and Sledgers are just a bad memory.

With that said, don’t blow it.

Exactly my thinking Jeff. I don’t like getting a talented team like the White Sox coming off an 8 game losing streak. In short, they are due. I was hoping to get them while they were still down. I guess we’ll see. Hopefully we can extend their slide another few games…But in MLB streaks can flip pretty quickly. That is one reason I was recommending restraint yesterday…

I echo that with the bullpen usage and it’s good to see the starters going a little deeper into games. Hopefully we get a solid start today as our better BP guys were in play a lot versus the Guardians. Having said that, I am really impressed with how quality the at bats have been lately and that tends to bring on good results. I’ve always loved Fletch but I’m hoping he’s fully ready before he comes back as this apple cart is pretty much on track.

I will keep my expectations on the planet for this road trip. Hoping for 4-3 over the next 7 but would be overjoyed with 5-2 etc.

The pitching story line is getting me excited. Just going to keep that tempered for now.

Most importantly- I enjoy watching this team play hard and compete daily. My favorite type of player is a gamer who always plays hard, grinds out at-bats and steals bases. So I’m pretty smitten with Marsh.

Let’s move on to the important and fun stuff now, how about the game yesterday. Marsh stole a base, don’t you just love good old fashioned baseball. Marsh batting second was a one time thing for now, but having Trout batting third being able to bring in the table setters is cool.

Detmers pitches #6 in the rotation, and he had his best game so far. Our starters are just other worldly right now. Each one trying to out do the others. It is hard to envision having any long losing streaks with this group. The new breed goes 5-7 innings and our guys can do that. Eric said Deputy Dog Detmers would go 5 and he did, even with early high pitch counts, but that’s learning for you.

Today we will face a tough but injured team with a very good pitcher. The Pale Hose hav average defense but their SS can hit the cover off a baseball and a first baseman that is a RBI machine Fast outfielder to.

Coming off flying in last night, combined with being on the road really makes for a tough game, but we will prevail 4-3 today. HR today will be Walsh. Gulp.

Too my mind, Ward, Marsh (or flip them), Trout, Ohtani, Walsh is best. I like Marsh here as he will see more good pitches and will be able to use his speed. I also like sliding Rendon further down further as he attempts to recover from his hip surgery and compromised “lower half.” Joe can flip the final four whoever gets wants based on matchups.

Boy oh boy, was it frosty and cool around here yesterday evening. Seems my enthusiasm for the 2022 Angels has rather than enjoined us, has caused some ripples in the CTPG regulars. I have inadvertently rubbed some the wrong way with my enthusiasm & optimism
when it comes to the spectacular start. Some feel that it is a lot of fun and we’ve had many posters, regulars along with newbies and everybody in between get caught up in excitement. Some are MOR (Middle of the road) and are with holding a bit as they fear the sudden come down and don’t want to feel let down. Understandable. Some expect the Doom and Gloom ant second now and consider those with positive excitement about the team to be close as you can get, to be Lunatics of Major order and to seek help.

Nonsense to those who want to condemn GPB to the fringes. Yes maybe down the road those “Nice young men in their clean white coats will be coming to take me away. Ha-ha, he-he to the funny farm”. Putting this all in perspective, when was the last time you felt this good about your favorite team? Why not celebrate right now, it’s never to early is it? Angels baseball deserves all of us to enjoy these moments to the fullest, now, not after the letdowns. We are on pace to win 101 games according to Eric, no one believes we really will do that, do they? Me, I think 90 to 92 wins. So a little come down is expected, so enjoy the moment and “Jump on board the Win Train” and have fun. We have overanalyzed this team and many have become unbearably pessimistic.

I’m not the enemy here, I just want to have some fun and while I’m at it bring that fun to you here. I was asked when will I predict that the Angels will lose? I never have and don’t see why I should. I believe truly every day we will win, otherwise I become defeated in my outlook of my team. When I say we will win and we do it is elation, when I pick the HR hitters and they come through it is just fun. Try it out for yourself, silently if you must, and see how much more fun it is than thinking we will lose every game. There is no come down if we lose, you just think about winning the next day or about our players who had a good day in the loss.

Enjoy having the GOST, Ohtani doing to Baseball what no one has ever done, enjoy seeing Marsh develop right in front of us and Trouty did.

Make fun of me if you care to, I find that stuff funny too. I awake every day in a good mood and try to bring pleasure to those I love and respect, To my neighbors, and as is said I can meet and talk to everyone and anyone. Have fun today and everyday my friends, that includes you Frost also.
