Postgame

It was the Angels versus the Diamondbacks today. The artillery had a field day for both sides. Jose Suarez started the game off. The Diamondbacks kind of manufactured a run in the first inning. For the Angels, Brett Phillips led off with a homer to tie things up.

Anthony Rendon also homered to drive in Brandon Drury and Jared Walsh. 4-1 Angels. The Angels really loved Zach Davies.

Arizona manufactured another run in the top of the second. 4-2 Angels.

Logan O’Hoppe doubled to score Rendon and Renfroe and drove Davies out of the game for good. 6-2 Angels.

Austin Warren replaced Suarez on the mound. Dominic Canzone doubled in the top of the fourth inning to make it 6-3 Angels. (Diego Castillo scored.) Nick Ahmed singled to drive in Canzone. 6-4 Angels.

In the bottom of the fifth inning Max Stassi doubled in Rendon and O’Hoppe to make it 8-4 Angels. Kyren Paris got an RBI single to score Stassi. 9-4 Angels. Mickey Moniak pinch hit for Brett Phillips and promptly doubled. The Angels apparently really liked Tyler Gilbert.

It wasn’t all Angels. Diego Castillo had three doubles for the Sneks by the top of the sixth inning. Chad Wallach had a passed ball, although Terry Smith blamed it on Max Stassi. (Get your scorecards. You can’t tell the players without a scorecard.) Dominic Canzone homered to drive in Diego Castillo and Yairo Munoz. 9-7 Angels.

Jordyn Adams came up and jacked one to make it 10-7 Angels. Werner Blakely reached base safely on a walk. The Angels failed to score him, though.

Jake Hager of the Diamondbacks homered in the top of the seventh inning to score Buddy Kennedy. 10-9 Angels. Mickey Moniak also hit a Home run in the bottom of the seventh inning to make it 11-9 Angels.

Phillip Evans got an RBI hit off of Coleman Crow in the top of the eighth inning to make it 11-10 Angels. Buggerall! They just don’t want to lay down and die.

Nineteen year old Adrian Placencia made a brilliant diving catch in the top of the ninth inning to save the game. 11-10 Angels win.

Suarez. Jeez dude, do you want the job or not man? Jordyn Adams…. still does not suck? Hunter Renfroe…. angry he was not invited to team USA? O’Hoppe and Stassi. Que no disfrutar de ambos? Rendon, obviously toast. Pitching. Pitching’s overrated anyway. Why didn’t Arte take off his clothes and light himself on fire during that SI interview? We hate dad, I mean him. Hate him hate him hate him.

Sigh. I miss Tucker Davidson today. We should trade Ohtani for two more of him and some gigantic beast slugger like Jordan Walker. And Dave Concepcion.

Superbly fun game to watch, but the best part is the game Rendon had and the comments by his manager informing us of his issues with injuries are currently in his past. Rendon said he was feeling great. Good news.

You and yours keep your spots in the human centipede of shitty CtPG juju. I’m with GPB feasting on the delicious coconut shrimp and prime rib of Angels spring greatness. Could the buffet run out? Sure, but it’s delicious now and it beats eating poop, then eating more poop but getting to declare that you never stopped eating poop to a bunch of people who couldn’t give a shit.

Spring! Halter tops! Home runs! Tucky D Cy Young 2023! Huzzah!

Yikes. I just now logged in to see what happened today.
A quick series of opposite emotional reactions.
Yay, we won!
What! We gave up 10 runs!
Yay, we scored 11 runs!

nothing to worry about Estevez’ 23.75 ERA. He’ll be fine….won’t he?

Probably he will open the season with 2 months of scoreless ball.

Even Moore was not good today. Maybe Tepoup will actually end up saving the bullpen this year

I wouldn’t read too far into it. I read somewhere they were having him get used to using his fastball up in the zone, the opposite of what he’s been doing in Colorado for the last 6 years. There’s bound to be an adjustment period.

I hope he gets through the adjustment before October

He’s 30 yrs old dude.
Another one of Perry’s failed strategies plus this whole organization’s which is to invest in 30 yr old bullpen pieces instead of young hard throwers and waste our high MLB draft position spots on players who are more versatile rather than good pure position players. Speaking mainly of Matt Thaiss and Will Wilson, that’s how the Baltimore Orioles can surpass us in two years after losing 110 games in 2021.
Anything in this comment that’s hostile?

I’m no expert, but I have heard that sometimes players are not all that good in Spring Training and that sometimes those same players turn out to be fairly good in the regular season. But I don’t know, that could just be fake news.

Only 2.2 innings pitched, stats can swing wildly but no question Perry needs to nail this signing.
