Walk It Off Postgame!

When a guy does multiple interviews with me, I root extra hard for him when he makes it to the show. Davis Daniel looked pretty good tonight overall, going three scoreless innings. He got off to a rough start with runners on second an third with no outs in his first inning but managed a nice escape.

Nolan Shanuel reached base for the 16th straight game, a new club record for a rookie. He also made a very nifty defensive play in the top of the 9th inning to keep it a one run game.

Unfortunately for the Angels, Aaron Loup also pitched and did give up runs. Two in one inning. Nothing says “tank” quite like putting Loup into a tie game. We see you, Nevin.

In yet another blow to the team, the red hot since July Luis Rengifo hurt himself in the on deck circle (very Angels) and is out with a bicep strain.

The Angels showed plenty of fight in the 9th inning. Wallach banged a one out double off the wall. Brett Phillips got a hit, and Kyren Paris notched his first career RBI to tie the game at 2-2.

Cleveland walked the bases loaded to create a game ending double play scenario. Brandon Drury hit a chopper to first and Phillips was cut down at home. The Angels challenged the play, but the call stood.

Enter Randall Grichuk. He punched a single to center for the walk off win. 3-2. Our first walk off win of the year.

Light that baby up!

Sitcom/Dramedy about a professional baseball team that takes over a whole floor of a large hospital with doctors who are former players. Nah, no one would believe it was real.

We have cut or traded all the healthy guys, now I am re-thinking my support of PTP. And after all that’s happened cutting good relief pitchers, we still have fing Loupy Lou.

Nevin said it doesn’t look good for Heefo. And Moniak’s back needs to be re-evaluated.

They’re all dropping like flies.

What a roller coaster for Grichuk. “These MF’ers don’t even want me and I just drove in the game-winning run. Imma mess up their tank!”

Nevin coming into work today. I was relieved he didn’t take out the Wiener Schnitzel.

Good for Davis Daniel! Those interviews were what? Two years ago? Long enough that I had to ask myself “didn’t Jeff interview him?” He seemed, back then, to be a good dude

BTW, when do the Halos get their 2023 Cactus League Championship trophy and ring ceremony?

I’m sorry, remind me what it means when we have more runs at the end of a game?

Isn’t that called “Spring training?”

This was fun. I’m already getting into rebuild thinking and looking forward to the O’Hoppe, Neto, Schanuel, Moniak future. The year’s a dud. We can still enjoy individual games. The tank is still on.

Just like a good team won’t win them all, so too a bad team won’t lose them all. But we’ve got 21 more opportunities to lose a lot!

I called it early. As soon as you get Queefy Joe off the field, the Halos can actually play as a team and win a game.
