LA Angels Wednesday News Crash: First AL West Game

Morning Angels fans. How is the cellar? Bring me up that 2009 wine, it was a good year that one. Anyway have some links.

Angels News

Friday, for the first time all season the Angels will face an AL West Opponent. This is the 2nd longest time it has taken for this to happen to any team ever. Only the 1998 Expos were left without a divisional opponent for longer.

But there are even weirder things on the Angels schedule. The A’s do not face the Angels until June, and are done with them before the end of July. The Angels do not have a a game against an opponent that is in the same time zone until May 31st in Seattle.

With how bad this team is, I am sure the front office is doing everything they can do do something, right? Oh, is that John Carpino, president of Baseball Operations watching the NHL playoffs? Yeah we are boned.

Angels lose. Again. Thanks to a bad Detmers, a bad bunt, and a worse Ron Washington. Seriously, throwing your player under the bus for your stupid plan? Come on man!

Has he lost the Clubhouse now?

Around Baseball

At least another Californian team feels as miserable as us, the Giants. Their rookie CF Jung Hoo lee has structural damage to his shoulder and may require season ending surgery. And Jorge Soler just got off the IL when he somehow hit himself in the head with a baseball when batting.

Oh and then there are the A’s, who’s days as a Californian team are counting down as Las Vegas funding for their stadium seems to be out of the voters’ hands. Maybe they will still mess it up, considering everything.

A player who is miserable has to be Reese Olson, who has an ERA of 2.09 and is 0-4 on the year. Even worse, his team is 1-7 in his starts this year. This is DeGrom levels of bad support for your SP and proof that pitching wins are stupid.

As the Angels have almost no prospects, we have to watch other teams so well by theirs. But, maybe the big prospects are overrated. Jack Leiter threw another dud for Texas last night not even getting through 2 innings.

But what about the Astro’s Ronel Blanco? He has been great so far! Well, he is a Astro, so of course he was, because he was cheating. Sticky stuff on glove. Shaking my head, Blanco from Houston.

Entertaining. That’s all I ask for in sports. I just want Wash to let the Halos play fundamental baseball. I don’t want them beating themselves like last night.

Off day tomorrow? Aw, man… I’m traveling home, finally, so I guess that’s fine. May try to get down to Arlington for the game on Saturday.

Based on this inning, Halos going to the playoffs. Just kidding. Lynn will get picked up by Perry after the game.

No Angels lead is safe, but I’ll sure as hell take this.

Ward has 2 RBIs since April 24th. He had 23 quickly, now stuck at 25

Ward had the absolute slowest swing to strike out I think I have ever seen in my life. I thought that was 4x slow motion in real time.

Halos finally get a bounce. Is Wash still with the team?

I believe they’re now on track for 110 losses this season.

I would like to believe that they will have less than 100 losses.

something close to it but actually a little lower. I think it’s 103. Still, that’s the most ever

Trout’s looking old… which makes me feel old. He came in when I was in my mid 20’s. I’m 39 in a couple months.

Looks like the GDT thread is scheduled for a 6:30 CA time posting… will they be tied, leading, or losing by the time it gets published?

Moniak will hopefully get untracked tonight and Adell probably needed an off day.

With Colorado’s win today we are now tied for 2nd worst record in mlb and Miami also won so we’re catching up to them, too

I’m surprised that I’ve seen absolutely no commentary about how the Astros were caught cheating yet again, last night. I guess we’re so riled up about our own team’s problems right now…

I got an idea-Let’s draft a shortstop in every round of the next draft. One out of 20 rounds of picks sounds like an Angels draft strategy to me.

ha ha we could draft like that every year. One year it could be nothing but 2 way players, or left handed catchers, or…
