Angels Lose Ump Show in Cleveland

The Angels head to Cleveland to see a team that is slightly better, but are in a playoff hunt. Can the Angels do the Twins a favor, or will they roll over and let Cleveland be the team to lose in the playoffs? Well, as usual, the team is undecided.

On team ‘Cleveland Rocks’ is Reid Detmers. He went 5 innings, giving up 4 runs on 6 hits, striking out 3 and walking 2.

However, on team ‘Cleveland Sucks’ was Mike Trout. Yes, he did it again, 7 straight games in a row. He cannot stop. Also, Duffy got in on the action. Huh, he’s been strangely clutch as of late.

One away from the MLBB record!

Highlighted Recap

Detmers messed up first in the 2nd, when he allowed the first blood.

1-0 Ohio people

It soon ballooned to a 3-0 hole in the same inning.

Oof

And the 2nd continued to be hell for the Angels as a 4th run would score.

4-0 Cleveland

Unlike Detmers, the Angels hitters refused to give in, scoring 2 on a home run by Duffy!

4-2 Cleveland

Then in the 5th, Mike Trout tied the game up!

Whole new ballgame!

“Not so fast!” Says team tank as they throw their best man, Loup, out there to make people miserable in Minnesota. Sure, he actually pitched a shutout inning at first, but they knew he still had it in him to be terrible.

5-4 Cleveland

Well, this close game needs some more dram. How about a manager getting tossed?

Because why not?

No, that isn’t enough, how about BOTH MANAGERS getting tossed?

FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT!

Anyway, the Angels failed to score anymore and lose 5-4. But not before the home plate ump take a ball to the face and leaves the game.

Karma
GIB ME ROBO UMPS!

Angels losing at an Ump Show. What a joke.

Ron Kulpa represents everything bad about umpires in MLB. He’s actually awful at his job (he was the worst home plate umpire in 2021 in the first half, according to tracking data), somehow, still got a job umpiring in the World Series if memory serves; and when questioned about anything he often turns into an incredible Hulk angry jerk. He’s literally one of the worst guys to see back there. The sooner we have robot umps the better. Have seen it in AAA Salt Lake this year, and it’s fantastic. No arguing balls and strikes and it speeds up the game. Wonderful.

At this point I have to agree; the sooner we see robo umps the better. Even though I am not convinced all problems will be solved in this manner, I do want the corrupt human umps gone. No question.

Kind of the same logic as ditching our owner. Can things be worse? Yes, much worse. Can things be better? Yes, much better. Is it obvious that trying “new thing” will be worse? Nope. OK, then it’s probably fine to try “new thing” and see how it goes, adjust from there, etc. We aren’t risking anything fantastic trying robo umps… why not see if it makes things better?

Yes, I agree that YKW/GM should sell the team along with Ross Stripling and Gerard Dipoto

“Reigning AL MVP Shohei Ohtani went 1-for-3 for the Angels, who are 1-19 on the road against Cleveland since 2015.”

Brutal.

“Dodgers clinch a playoff spot for the 10th season in a row”

Even more brutal.

Congrats Matt Duffy for hitting his first home run of the 2022 season. Heck a couple more extra base hits and he might even get his OPS over .600 Certainly what Im looking for from our corner infielders.

10/10 Cover Photo for the writeup.

At the end of the day though, who cares about the umpires? The team has 2 35+ HR guys which includes a generational two-way player and is 19 games under .500. The more Trout and Ohtani do well, the more it just exposes how clueless Perry was in his offseason planning. I’ve seen enough now…get rid of him whether the new owner comes in before or not.

Those human umpires cost us several key games this season, mostly in that Blue Jays series in late May. Remember? The one where we got swept in four and were ahead in all but one of those games.

There was maybe 1 game in that series you could say cost the Angels a game when Carlos Torres was behind the plate. It happens. Anyone trying to argue that Kulpa cost the Angels last night though is clouded by emotion. His terrible situation handling and communication skills have nothing to do with their on-field play.

Nobody is arguing Mea Kulpa cost us the game last night.

What is at play here is his “you wanna F with me?” attitude displayed on the field. His behavior was atrocious & inexcusable.

Nothing changes with robo umps in that situation as it dealt with HBP, challenge time allowance, and warm up pitches. People who wanted robo umps before last night didn’t have their arguments strengthened or weakened with last night’s sideshow.

At the end of the day that team calls “Cleveland” their home, so they never really win.

If anyone thought the Angels and their fans aren’t cursed, this season in combination with Pujols’ resurgence and almost certainly of getting to 700 HR has got to be the evidence. What did we do and how can we break it?

Pooholes = click bait.

We have our own should be back-to-back MVP with 3X MVP MNT in the middle of a 7 HR game streak and every game thread, morning links and whatever else has a countdown to 700. That, along with the foundations buttercup song, has long left our stadium. When he gets to 700, retires… I def understand the posts. Plenty of other guys around the the league (Cron, Iglesias, bud black) that are former halos that we can also keep up with on a day to day basis that do good for themselves, team, league and community. But don’t. So I get it, it’s pooholes,comment image

but also I’ll poke at it 🤷🏼‍♂️

if we go undefeated we’ll finish over .500 at 82-80. So we can’t afford to drop any of the next 21.

I’m gonna go back to the pre-season and see what we all predicted.

So does this math problem end with 2 more Angel losses?

if it ain’t over yet. I dunno. 70 is a possibility but the lads are quite capable of going 6-15. Ohtani has 3? starts left.

Fansince1971

Probably more like 10-11 or 11-10. Last 9 are against Texas and Oakland. But once they have 82 losses is the countdown irrelevant?

Honestly, I don’t really care. But to sit him while he is hot was odd in my opinion.
