And the braves struck out more than we did.

Heading into the 3rd season of Succession. I’d recommend it over watching this garbage.

Right now I’m trying to make the one kitten we kept from the litter I rescued, friends w/a kitten who just showed up in our backyard. So far Pepper (the rescue) and Marshmallow (stray) are at odds. Marshmallow wants to be friends, Pepper not so much. Btw, this is much more fun than watching those zombies on the field.

Mathematically, we are on pace for 1588 strike outs by seasons end.

Until they do away with these crappy ass hitting coaches, this is what we’ll get.

Brandon Marsh has alweez lacked HR power for being a Jayson Werth type body

it was so nice and quiet there for a while. didn’t watch a single snap of the all-star game, but I did listen to Shohei’s AB in the car while driving.

I was hoping that the Angels would get back on track after the All Star break. Nope. This may be what we can expect for the rest of the season.

We are right on track … the same track we were on prior to the All Star break.

Vasgersian quoting Forrest Gump just proves that … oh, I’ll bite my tongue.

24 outs and half of those are strikeouts. That cannot be a good stat.

Is history in our reach?
Chicago Cubs batters struck out 1,596 times during the 2021 season, surpassing the previous mark of 1,595 by the Detroit Tigers in 2019.

on pace for 1584. You do know that it’s not the “first half” … the All-Star Break was after the 92nd Angel game with 70 remaining AFTER the All-Star Break..

We’re at 912 right now, and the braves are on our heels at 891. That’s current including tonight.

Can you do that when it matters Walshie? The old Walshie would .

Walsh has zero trade value. He’s fallen off a cliff offensively this season

2nd half last year too. It’s a continuation and looks like this is what he will be moving forward

You do know he will become a hitting machine once he’s traded and away from Reed.

Might be well-suited for the Pioneer League.

Considering the track record of some of these guys I have to believe that a component of this is a coaching problem

There’s nothing right with the franchise right now. Not a damn thing.

I still can’t wrap my head around that after the draft the team has a lower rated farm system than prior to the draft.

Yep. Too late now, though. “The damage is done” as they say.

I did when the feed cut out after the single after the 2 run HR. Just checked the score… YIKES.
