Serious question why does Rendon have to play?

Isn’t this much better

1. Rengifo – 3B
2.Shanuel – 1B
3. Trout – CF
4. Drury – 2B
5. Moniak- RF
6. Ward – LF
7. O’Hoppe – C
8. Adell – DH
9. Neto – SS

The lineup without Rendone is so much deeper and more explosive. Bring the vets off the bench most days / 1 time a series.

Not sure about Moniak yet. Still think Rendon can hit but not in number 1 spot

Post game sound bite goals:

  • No one says its just “1 of 162”
  • No one says “we’ll get after it again tmrw” (because we won’t there’s no game)
  • No one utters the word page unless they are taking it back to the 90’s and talking about beepers for some strange reason
  • Shot taking bonus: Someone drops an F bomb

Trout HR
Schanuel extends on-base streak
Rengifo double
Rendone and Hicks stinking it up

Outside of a Halos W and a Sano 💣, pretty solid outcomes for me personally lol

One game in, and Cimber remains my favorite Angel. Freak.

3 looks a lot better than 1, ngl.

A couple of key hits in that inning would have helped.

I’m watching GameDay, but basically did we just get away with a botched double-play?
That’s the only way we scored more runs?

Pretty close to 50/50 for balls and strikes for our pitchers.

All in all a very turn the page opening day.

Adull did exactly what the guy he PH for has done all game. Solid work, Jodan (冗談)

In all honesty (my 2nd line was fact) – It’s a pre-planned “least coast” buffer day … in case of bad weather. There’s no bad weather so it’s a “sit on our asses” day.

‘Gifo back to leadoff, Nolan back to #2.

Common knowledge amongst ball knowers. Wash should be able to figure it out too

Improbable splits: Rengifo, batting first

2023: .356/.412/.644
Career: .293/.338/.520

Gotta like the trajectory, even if we’re only talking 241 leadoff appearances.

Rengifo does like the spotlight too and at least really wants to be there.

Our star line was 1 run 1 hit, 1 rbi, 1 walk and 11 K’s. Good stuff!

1st game of the year, 161 to go, off to a rousing start!
