That’s right, let it all out. Curse the team and the sequencing and the baseball gods and the bullpen and the injuries and everything else under the sun. We’ve officially reached the “First Unlimited F-Bomb Thread of CtPG” point.
I spoke too soon yesterday. We transcended the bottom today. The Angels used Nickelback walk-up songs to try and shake things up. It’s an amusing meme if we are 10 losses into this streak fewer, but it’s a bit late for jokes. We’re probably going to lose 20 in a row now.
Good, a thread where I am allowed to say Fuck this team. Fuck this team. Fuck this team.
What is the record for consecutive loses? Fuck it let’s be bad on an epic scale.
23 by the Philadelphia Phillies in 1961.https://www.mlb.com/news/longest-losing-streaks-in-mlb-history
1889 Lousville Colonels lost 26 straight. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1889_Louisville_Colonels_season
The official moto of LAA fans should now be….
FUCK YOU. I’M AN ANGELS FAN.
I believe that the team is in a nasty funk is because there are no leaders on the team. Besides Trout, who really has a voice? Half of the team belongs in the minors. The other half have been around the team for a few seasons. Times like this, I wish that Upton was on the team, a veteran with leadership. But that is not the case. I don’t see Syndergaard rallying the troops. The team is floundering with no voice. That is the issue. Tough times require tough players, and this team doesn’t have it.
Grit! That must be it!
It’s what we need says one.
That’s why they hired Nevin,
when the streak went past eleven.
“I’ve got grit!” (Nevin)
“But, that’s really it.” (CtPG)
At this point, it is not the coaches, its the players. They themselves need to find a way out. Coaches can scheme, plan, play Nickleback songs all they want, but they are not the ones playing.
Anyone surprised in football when a 0-14 suddenly gets it together and win ONE?? Prob a combination of the other team playing down and said shitty team playing like it’s their super bowl. Baseball is even less like that (the point spread on a given game isn’t -17 like in football sometimes) and any team can win (even if it’s 3 to 1 odds) on any night. To lose 14 in a row has to be some sort of statistical and historic anomaly… and it is. Fault, blame, shame etc goes to owner first (writes the checks), players (since they’re playing), coaching, training staff, scout/minor league systems etc. We are failing at ALL of them. Even as we swoon over Ohtani and Trout, baseball is the only sport where the numbers kinda of lie…. Even a 100+ loss team have a #4 hitter with a decent avg, HRs and RBI etc. No one is pitching around anyone on those teams, a pitcher truly will go after said hitter because they want to ‘beat’ them… and even if they get a double the chances of them scoring are next to none. Time to make some people around you better fellas
Isn’t that was Rendon was supposed to be with his WS experience? Also, I think the team respects David Fletcher, who is somewhere on this planet. I would’ve thought Thor could help with the pitching staff. Even Lorenzen seemed to have some fire. That’s about it. Either way, it ‘ain’t working.
Look at this baseball team
Every time I do, it makes me laugh
How did our eyes get so red?
And what the hell is in Nevin’s head?
Just dropped in to say fuck this team!
Thanks for dropping
I live near Dodger stadium, was going out to vote Tuesday and instinctively reached for my red Angels hat with the original “LA” logo on the front that the Dodgers stole. But as I reached for it sadly my thought was, “hmm maybe not the Angels hats right now”, hey how about my NASA hat instead?”. Sad. I have worn those Angels hats around my neighborhood for years, maybe I’ll just give them all a little rest now…
Nay my friend. Now is the time to wear that Angel hat and be a true fan. It’s not like the players have been out molesting children. They just suck. Now’s when you show the rest of the baseball world they can go fuck themselves, you’re an Angels fan.
A virtual “Thumbs Up” click to every comment on this page.
Thanks a fucking lot Angels.
All of my shitty Astros fan friends now think it’s too cruel to talk shit to me.
I’m now morbidly curious to see if the Angels can break the all time record
Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters once tweeted “If you play a Nickelback song backwards you’ll hear messages from the devil. Even worse, if you play it forwards you’ll hear Nickelback.”
Fuck all these assholes for tricking me into thinking they had heart and a chance to do something this season. And a special fuck off to Rendon, who has completely shat on my efforts to be his fan.
Nickelback is the new Buttercup and sadly, I don’t give a F***
No matter how many times we say it, Arturo will still be the owner, and we will still be fucked. Rengifo is the human embodiment of this.
LOOK AT THIS PHOTOGRAPH
EVERYTIME I LOOK AT IT, IT MAKES ME LAUGH
from reddit; “It’s May 10th. Reid Detmers has thrown a no-hitter. The Angels finish the game with 18 hits. Trout has hit two homers. Rendon has hit a left-handed homer. The Angels have beaten the Rays 12-0 to move to 21-11. Life is good.”
That was beautiful, man. And I dig your username, never noticed it/you here before.
He like you and I, is a trusted member

But … he ended up 70564 comments behind some other commenting badass:
Seriously – just look at the line up put out there last night. We got nothing top to bottom. There were two players starting with SLG percentages higher than 400, and neither of them were above 450. Duffy is batting clean-up? More strikeouts than hits? Even if MLB allowed the Angels to hit off a tee, it wouldn’t matter.
The players own this completely.
Ladies and germs, your new Angels manager, Phil Nevin!:
>“I don’t know whose idea it was, but I like it, I like Nickelback,” Phil Nevin said after his second game as interim manager in place of the fired Joe Maddon. “The entire game, I got a song in my head and can’t stop singing. … I mean, it was neat for a while.”<
Meanwhile, Tim Salmon says he doesn’t condone violence, but seems to think that’s what the team needs:
>“The mindset back then, when you were going through a losing stretch, was we need a good brawl,” Salmon said. “We’re hitting somebody [with a pitch], and we’re gonna fight. What it did was create this energy, this excitement.
You’re all bloodied up, you’re drinking beers and talking about it after the game and having fun, it just lightens the mood, and it helps you get out of your funk. In a way, it’s almost like they kind of need something like that. I wouldn’t condone fighting, but that’s the way the game was played back then.”<
What about when a punch from Rengifo misses an opponent and he breaks Ohtani’s nose? Then what?
So, you believe if Renny breaks Shohei’s nose we would be in worse shape? I would love to see a good old fashion Donny-Brooke. I’m sometimes Old School. Be positive, have a sunny outlook, but stop taking shit and release the inner demons and stop being passive.
After Rengifo broke Ohtani’s nose, the punch would continue to somehow break Trout’s ribs, then magically continue to break Rengifo’s own cheekbone.
Yea, but if you slow down the footage, Rengifo’s fist goes back…and away. Back and away. Where was the second first?
How many Fucking times are they going to be Fucking Swept by a team before they Fucking luck into a Fucking Win? 14 Fucking losses and counting. Are we living in the Fucking Twilight zone? Fuck this man. That’s Fucking all.
