Angels get pathetically blown out in Atlanta

The Angels played the Braves this morning and looked to end this road trip with a win. But in order to do that, they needed their new SP to pitch well, so, how did Lucas Giolito do? He went 3 and 2/3 innings, giving up 9 runs on 8 hits, striking out 2 and walking 3. By far the worst start of the road trip, this was not what you wanted at all.

It was up to the offense to salvage this game, and it would take a miracle. And they did not have it, at all. Yeesh, this wasn’t even a great pitcher today for the Braves, but a guy that they claimed from the Rays. Come on. Only scoring one off this guy?!

Not that it would matter as the bullpen allowed more runs anyway…

“Highlighted” Recap

Lucas Giolito did not have a good time. He allowed 3 in the 3rd inning and it was just the start,

But the Angels did score 1 run in the 4th.

3-1 Braves

Not that it would be close for long as the Braves scored 6 in the 4th and put the game out of reach. Down 9-1, the Angels got nothing in the 5th and were being dominated by Chirinos.

Even when they took him out they struggled and barely, and I mean BARELY scored a run on what should have been an inning ending double play in the 6th.

9-2 Braves

It was truly pathetic, but, Escobar did hit 2 in with a triple so it wasn’t a complete blow out anymore, just down 5.

9-4 Braves

Not that it mattered as Barria gave up 2 more runs to make it 11-4 Braves.

And another one in the 8th to make it 12-4 Braves. But hey, at least he saved the bullpen?

Neto doubled in a run in the 9th.

12-5 Braves

Angels lose before lunch.

Upcoming

Anyway, it is best to forget that this game happened. 4 Game Series vs the Mariners starting tomorrow. Page turn or whatever.

Remembering back to those multiple “how the fck did we blow that lead?!?” games? Those “meaningless” early season meltdowns are coming home to roost.

Yes, yes. Teams blow games. But they made it an art form. A season or mores worth of head shaking losses in a couple of months. Imagine what position they’d be in if they won just half of those multi run meltdowns.

Good teams don’t do that. Mediocre teams wallow in it.

Still patiently waiting for this team to wake up and play playoff baseball. It’s august. You’re on the outside looking in. Wake the Fck up, it’s time to start chasing wins.

Yep. The Sunday game we blew against the Asstros most recently. It’s a game we should have won but it was against a good team so I can excuse it but that one Saturday game in June against the Royals where we had a 8-2 lead and lost 9-8 – inexcusable. That one hurts and it’s especially going to hurt if this team finishes one game out of a potential wildcard spot.

To be fair, if you are going to talk about the games we “blew” or lost leads late then you need to talk about the games where we did the reverse — where WE came back late and pulled out an improbable win. There have been a few of those as well, most notably the 13-12 extras innings win on that Saturday night against Houston. That was without a doubt our best win of the season and we had no business winning that game.

Yet we did.

Another game was the middle game of the St. Louis series in May. In that one we were down 4-3 going to the 9th. Jake Lamb hit a HR to tie the game and then Trout hit a HR to put us ahead… Though that was not a huge comeback, most of the time your team leads going to the 9th you expect to win… And the Cards should have won that one, but we pulled it out …

Another game we “should” have lost but didn’t was the Friday night home game vs Texas when we trailed 4-1 going to the 9th. Now THAT was a game the Rangers let slip away… We had a great comeback in the 9th to tie it and then won it in the 10th…

Just trying to be balanced here …

Someone should remind Gio his a free agent after this season. His 6th start since 2022 with 7 or more runs given up (aka an auto loss) ties his for most in the bigs. Thats a huge factor I didn’t know. When he’s on he’s good but he is frequently off at a level where your team has no chance to win. Probably something Perr should think about if and when we are ever buying a rental again.

Ominous sign from the Mets and the Shohei sweepstakes?

I don’t think it comes down to that. There are numerous other teams out there that will want Shohei and offer him the moon. Arte can offer him the moon too, but with lots of losing seasons to count on as well. Not so sure how Shohei feels about that. I’m surprised that some on the blog really believe he’ll resign with the Angels…. better yet, with Arte at the helm. Of course Arte’s gonna try and make it work. But all he can offer is gigantic sums of money, but not much more than other teams will offer. Sho could care less about the money.

Of course I know other teams will want in on the Shohei sweepstakes. I was talking specifically about the Mets.

Since Cohen spent like a drunken sailor this past offseason, and that’s why most everyone expected him to spend like a drunken sailor again this coming offseason with Shohei on the market.

I thought Cohen took his lumps and admitted that spending lot of money alone does not bring wins. I respect his honesty with the players and the courage to show up in front of New York media.

Cohen (and Eppler) said next season is going to be a rebuild season, declaring to and lowering the Mets fans expectation. However, I am curious to see if the Mets would go after Yoshinobu Yamamoto of Orix Buffaloes whom Eppler has been keen on for past few seasons.

BTW, Yamamoto has pitched Tuesday, 7 innings, no ER, scattered 7 hits with 7Ks. He has earned 10th win, the first NPB pitcher to have 2 digit wins this season. He lowered his ERA to 1.67.

All those trades for nothing. Hopefully Trout has a MVP caliber season in 24 and we can trade him to restock the farm. There should be a few other players that we can trade to next year to for restocking the farm. I am so done with how this organization is operated that I want a full rebuild.

Yep. It’s been pretty obvious to me that usually, more often than not, when you’re trading from desperation without any real chips to trade, it goes down like this. Gioloto doesn’t appear to be a prize Perry catch, unlike what he did last year getting Monial and O’Hoppe. Build the damn farm if you ever ever expect to win, cause it’s not gonna be for several years at the soonest. Never if Arte won’t sell, or new ownership that let’s the whole think bottom out and REBUILD, like every other good team has done, including the Dodgers, Stros, Phils, Boston, and other teams. Arte’s ‘plan’ is a plan for guaranteed failure.

I’ve been saying this for years. The plan to always be ‘competitive’ and have a team that is ‘marketable’ has landed the Angels in the middle of the pack for a long time now. I’m a believer in tearing down to build up. The refusal to do so in favor of being ‘competitive’ year after year is not running a baseball Org in my opinion.

It is why I firmly believe Arte has to go. Not because he is ‘cheap’ because he really is not. He is actually pretty generous in his spending. It is his lack of baseball knowledge, his failure to surround himself with baseball people and his being deeply involved in baseball decisions that is my frustration.

Since I lack in specific enzyme to digest ETOH, I don’t tolerate alcoholic beverages. I become an angry octopus in my face with a smidgen of beer or wine. Probably a good thing for me. However, I have had several buddies on adult baseball team who had problems with alcohol, so I am somewhat more understanding though they disappointed the baseball team with their no shows on game days.

However, when it comes to men hurting women or people abusing children, I have absolutely no sympathy for them.

Whether it is ETOH and/or domestic abuse, I am glad someone recognized his issues, and he is at least under treatment (or separated from his family.)

I’m sorry. He’s ‘obviously resigning with us’? Where did you pull that one out from. Maybe you haven’t been following, but he wants to Win more than Anything else. Why would he resign with an organization that is likely to be the longest out of the playoffs of any MLB team if they don’t get in this year.

You probably haven’t paid attention to his numerous comments saying he likes playing in Anaheim, but he likes Winning even more. Arte should have sold last off season. Shohei is smart. He knows it’s a lost cause with Arte at the top.

Oh well, classic turn-the-page game.

I have hopes that Giolito will turn it around. I think he’s more of the pitcher in the Toronto game than this one, and this game is an outlier.

I’m glad they got one game against the best team in the league, and a quality win at that as well.

We should have a good showing against Seattle this home series.

So, let’s see. After making a fantastic catch at the wall early in the game, Adams then showed us that:

– He’s not a good hitter (0-4. two Ks)

– He’s not smart (two throws that either sailed or went to the wrong base allowing the hitter to take second)

– He can’t throw accurately (overthrows)

– He’s really not a good fielder. Other than the great catch, he ran multiple circular routes on fly balls and failed to catch a line drive hit right to him.

I realize he is a rookie, but this was not a good look.

MFYankees, Red Sux, and Mariners practically speaking raised their white flags by not doing much at trade deadline. So it is going to be Blue Jays and Angels for the last spot. As long as Angels keep it close with the Blue Jays, we still got a chance of something in late September to cheer for.

I will be cheering for Orioles tonight.

Additional blow to the Blue Jays as they announced Bo Bichette was placed on IL, calling it ‘Patellar tendinitis’. MRI revealed “no significant structural damage’. If they are doing like what Angels do with their medical information, the Blue Jays did not want to say it was ACL strain and peppered with -itis and no significant structural damage, meaning there was no breakage but there was a strain (probably 2nd degree) in some ligaments that are attached to the knee cap. He will be out for 6 weeks minimum IMHO.

Blue Jays August schedule is pretty tough; they got only 2 games against Phillies and 3 games against Nat’s that they can relax somewhat. The remaining teams are all contenders.

The Angels just proved that they are not the best team in the Majors, but could they be the second best team?
