So Adell pinch hits in the 9th? So he was healthy, we just need to give 23 year old days off instead of having them get reps they seriously need?

I mean I don’t want to see Goose hit in the head again, but can he please just go away for ever? Like wtf does anyone on this team see in him? He hasn’t had a season better than a replacement player since 20 fucking 16. Like how is this even possible he’s still playing?

This is a team that also employed Kurt Suzuki and Juan Lagares twice. There is not logic here

yea I mean if your plan is competing you have to at least fill out your roster with guys that are at least replacement level otherwise, who cares how good your best players are if they are being weighed down by people that should never be playing. This is where during the offseason Perry should have seen which teams had a roster crunch and traded for some AAAA guys with at least some feasibility of being rosterable instead of signing guys that are so f’ing bad it gives us all migraines.

I hope the Angels can move him by Tuesday and rid themselves of the bad contract

They’ll trade him to the Dodgers, they’ll fix him and he’ll be the most dominant reliever in MLB

Why was both Ward and Adell not in the starting lineup? Are the Angels finally embracing the suck and going for a decent draft pick?

With a draft lottery we actually have a chance for the #1 pick

Angels have driving me away from baseball so much I didn’t even know they are doing a lottery now.

Yeah every team that doesn’t make the playoffs has a chance. The worse record you have, the higher percentage you have to get it though.

I didn’t even watch the game but I’m pretty sure the Angels lost in the 3rd when they loaded the bases with nobody out and then Arte’s depth pieces of Gosselin, Velazquez and Sierra got one run in. It’s so pathetic the Angels play people that should NEVER be playing on any team at anytime, especially leadoff. How do you plan on competing and then a few injuries in and you are playing Gosselin and Sierra? I know Adell ain’t great, but he is young enough to at least be something. Sierra NEVER will be. Rojas might turn it around and be serviceable. Play him over these complete pieces of turd.

Watching Gameday on the MLB app makes me feel like the Angels couldn’t care less about scouting reports. It’s like the Angels try to throw pitches in the opposing hitters’ hot zones time and time again.

Angel stadium is showing Rally Monkey clips when the opposing team is batting. It’s like we’re trying to lose

…and here comes the bullpen to screw up another opportunity for a win.

Shoutout to the minors coach that fixed Detmers!

Why Matt Wise still has a job is beyond me.

Why ANY coach on this team still has a job is beyond me. Both hitting and pitching have sucked beyond levels this season.

For the same reason Reed has a job. Indifference.

Speaking of big left-handed bats, “the Dodgers have tried to engage the Angels” about a possible Shoheo Ohtani trade, MLB Network’s Jon Morosi tweets. The Angels are reportedly at least listening to other teams’ offers for Ohtani, even if Anaheim’s asking price is said to be huge, and a trade seems quite unlikely. Morosi’s specific phrasing implies that the Angels weren’t willing to truly “engage” with the Dodgers in talks, which perhaps isn’t surprising — as Morosi notes, “many in the industry are skeptical that Ohtani would be dealt to the Angels’ geographic rival.”

Arte will never send him to the Dodgers.

Never.

I agree. If Arte would not send Rengifo, no way Ohtani gets traded there….even though the Dodgers might be the team that would offer the most talent in return.

Sneak third team trade? Dodgers talk to team who’d be okay giving up MLB level player(s) to the Angels to send Ohtani, Dodgers then send their players over to ? in exchange for Ohtani.

Taveras quickly joining my list of guys who I don’t like (with the likes of Framber Valdez) for just being good at their jobs on another team.

0-14 Ward gets a bloop hit. But hey, it works.
