Angels lose after Rain Delay

It was an early afternoon game today in Chicago as the Angels faced the White Sox again. Weather was a factor as the cold winds and rain made it a tough game to even play, with a Rain Delay occurring.

Jose Suarez was on the bump this afternoon, and it did not go well. While it was fine to start, he ended up going 4+ innings while allowing 4 runs on 8 hits, striking out 4 and walking 2. 2 home runs hurts a ton. It may be blamed on the rain, however, as 3 of the runs and most of the hits happened as the rain started to fall.

Jose Suarez’s first pitch went over the wall, as he gave up a leadoff home run in the bottom of the first. He gave up 3 more in the 5th as the rain came down.

The offense was not so hot, however, as the Angels went multiple innings without even a baserunner. Just 4 singles were able to be hit before the rain delay. No extra base hits, not even a walk to be had. Like a fire in the rain, the offense which was blazing hot was smoldered.

Rain Delay

In the top of the 6th with 2 outs, in the middle of Mike Trout’s AB, the rain came down even harder, forcing a delay. A mid game, mid at bat rain delay that soaked Chicago.

A rain delay, that’s your highlight of the day

When the rain finally went away, Trout grounded out to end the 6th.

Barria pitched after the delay, quickly trying to end the game by getting quick outs. It could, however, just be the White Sox feared more rain and swung at everything. Either way, the game ended quickly after the delay.

Despite having some success in the later innings, it was not enough. GIB ME ROBO UMPS! The Angels lost, 4-0.

all kind of Shits happening. Jose Suarez optioned. Kenny Rosenberg recalled. Duffman to the IL. Rosters reduced by 2 tomorrow. Dogs & cats living together.

Can’t say I am unhappy about Suarez.

I like the no-bullshit approach that Perry has. Different from our approach during the Sosh years…

Rip Keuchel a new one! Let’s goooo!

Glad to see our manager kept Walsh in the lineup vs LH. Prioritizing defense. I’ll give him a mulligan on Marsh though as Jo needs ABs.

Today’s matchup will be a good measure to see if whether we are really part of resurgence or just an early season flash in the pan. We face an old nemesis, Dallas Keuchel that seemed to always give us trouble dating back to the pre cheating crappy Asstro days. Time to crush this left hander.

Keuchel has been scuffling, however, as you point out, he is a left-handed pitcher! We will see….

Funny, I got called away during the game when it was 1-0, a good friend was in accident that was a weekender’s fault and has totaled car but was un-hurt and needed a ride home from the hospital. I expected to return home to a win. Let’s get ‘er dun taday, hey!

Wow, of all people I’d think you’d understand the value of not changing things up when on a sun streak.

If you miss a game and the Angels win, you don’t watch the next one on suspicion. They win again, you continue to do the exact same thing til they lose.

So honestly, what is wrong with you grandpa???

Everyone’s favorite come back player, Ty Buttrey hit a snag today when giving up 4 straight singles and eventually a walk before getting pulled in the top of ninth at the great Salt lake this afternoon. Ty avoided the loss, however when the Bees got a walk off (run off?) sac fly from Jose Rojas in the bottom of the ninth to win the game.

I don’t really see this as a “snag.” I mean, very good pitchers go down to AAA for rehab assignments and give up runs. What is more important than the individual hits he may or may not give up is how his stuff looks, what his mound presence is like etc. How confident is he? Is his control good? If he is not walking people and balls are not hit really hard off of him I am not that concerned with four straight singles, especially since if memory serves his prior outings were pretty good. No pitcher is going to get every batter out or throw zeroes up there every time. Nothing to see here, keep moving along…

Beane didn’t go to Stanford. Not that it matters, he’s still plenty smart…. just not as smart as Paul Depodesta.

Can I ask you please to just go away. You’re such a coward to only post after the team loses. Such a little sniveling baby coward. You hide yourself away while the team wins six in a row and then they lose one game and you show up. Such an unimpressive troll.

I personally stayed off from commenting once I realized a winning streak had started after I was in the GDT for the two BAL losses. Definitely superstitious on my part lol – but 2002… is something else.

You are really not funny or cute or witty or even smart. Just what is it that compels you to not only post here, but to be such a troll? Maybe you could find another Angels site to troll or better yet become a Troll for the Astros, you would more than likely find a home on a NYY site or fit right in with the Mets, but either way you chose just hit the road and leave here.

Beane didn’t attend Stanford and will most likely never be the Angels’ GM so I don’t know what the point of this is.

True…..
Not once did I say that he did either, however he was offered a full scholarship from Stanford as pointed out by both the movie and the book.
Tew shay!!! PS not like THE OLIGARCH would’ve hired him anyway, however he did give a lot of money to another old guy (heck he’s in the other team’s dugout….Hey Tony!!!) as a advisor. Take it easy, old dude, steps are tricky for people over 70!!

Yeah I looked at the by day schedule about an hour ago and I thought I was just being tricked with the crazy time difference from CA to Korea so I then pulled up the by month schedule and was like… I don’t think I’ve ever seen a Fri-Mon series before.

Yea, Mia. No big. Some jagoff suddenly appears, railing against the “immorality” of porn and gambling, and my gawd how inconsistent we are in our opinion of Trevor Bauer. THAT is trolling worth ignoring.

If not banning outright.

I simply ignore 2002 dude. He’s got some damage the Halos inflicted on him and it’s beyond our collective damage- it’s beyond the damage I’ve felt – which is saying something…and we’ve seen some sad jit since 2002. Free speech, even if annoying.

BUT: I seriously suspect the porn/gambling/Bauer d-bag is just here to be a twit. Not about baseball. Ban-able, just my two cents. We’ll see how much more he (?) decides to grace us with.

I’m only making pleas to “ignore” or “maybe ban” because the regulars are great here. The quality of this site is very high and I balk at the first sight of someone tryna inflict damage.

All the relievers that matter got to rest their arms. The only upside of this game.

Considering what Herget, Barria, and Ortega have done so far taking on extended relief is promising.
