Good morning Angels fans. Or rather, bad morning, I guess? Pessimism and all… Angels still suck. Have some links.
The Angels lost 2 in a row to the American League team in Ohio. Mike Trout had his home run streak snapped and everyone looked sad and pathetic. The Angels had 4 hits yesterday, and 3 of them were singles.
With their 81st loss, the Angels again have failed to have a winning record. Remember back in April when we at CtPG had our predictions? Yeah, even I was way too optimistic.
Oh yeah and the Angels sent Aguilar to SLC. First AAA experience, actually.
Rendon may be back at the end of the year, and not just to serve his suspension either. Yay~
All around baseball, history is being made. Pujols is getting closer to 700 home runs, with a better season than any in Anaheim.
Meanwhile, Aaron Judge is getting closer and closer to 60 on the year. Damn Yankees. STOP IT.
But more exciting since it is less painful, is what is happening across the Pacific, as the NPB is having their own home run chase. With a shorter 144 game season, the 60 hit by Wlad Balentien in 2013 is truly remarkable.
On the opposite end of beloved, TLR is creating a rift in Chicago. The players do not want him back as manager.
deGrom is good and healthy. Historically so.
