Angels clobbered by Sneks in loss

It was a chance to win a series in the desert. All that needed to happen was a good outing by Canning, and some runs. How hard was that? Well, apparently, plenty hard. Canning went 6 innings, giving up 4 runs on 4 hits, striking out 3 and walking 1. Not ideal. Maybe it would be manageable with a similar offensive performance to yesterday, alas, runs were more scarce today.

But maybe the Angels would be in better shape if they just had a bullpen? Canning gave up 4 in 6 innings. The bullpen gave up 7 in only 2. Whatever chance for a comeback was gone, and so was any reason to really give highlights since, there just weren’t much?

Oh fine, here are the few brief Angels highlights.

Jo Adell made a good catch

It still feels weird seeing him be good at defense

At least the Angels were not shut out thanks to M-I-C-K-E-Y.

4-1 Sneks

And, uh, Canning had 3 strikeouts?

Yeah that is all I got

Angels blown out, and it is best not to think about the game much. Turn the page and all of that.

Upcoming

Angels go to SF this weekend. Maybe they should get some sourdough bread. I would like some myself.

I guess we can remove Canning from the “trade bait” that could fetch more than a “Cole Tucker” type of player in return.

Even though it’s USA Today – this hurts a bit. Worst ranked farm system of all 30 franchises.

It’s been that way for years, and the rationale that “we graduate our draft choices to MLB” is just bullshit. The farm system ratings are about the entire system – several hundred players, not one or two players. The Angels continually have no depth of talent nor personnel that can develop talent. This is why the franchise has dug a hole that will take a long time to overcome.

It was also interesting to see the Astros at #29. The era of dominance might well be over.

Right on que, the Angels add to the losing column and the clearer I can see that sterling in our lotto winning number one pick and we take the best of the best in a H.S. pitcher as our big choice. 1 Day after the draft he announces that he has enrolled in the University of Redlands to pursue being a Dentist while secretly hoping to re-enter the draft and gets taken by anybody other than Halos or A’s, he doesn’t like Christmas colors.

Man I am super excited to be going to the SF/LAA game on Sunday. I’ve only been to SD, Chavez Latrine, and Anaheim. Unfortunately, son’s family got the covids so they won’t be joining with my old lady and me at the game.

Canning wasn’t good but, he battled to give the team 6 innings. BP was terrible, obviously.

Rengifo with 2 knocks. Mickey with an RBI & 2 walks.

That’s It.

I have lost track but gameday tells me our record is 26-42. So the magic number is 94 games left. Haha!

I am reconciled already to our getting screwed in the lottery and ending up with the 8th or 9th pick in 2025
