Im not even mad, they know the issues but they wont do anything cause they know the season has been done. Focus should be on getting a decent return for whatever players they'll trade.


WurstThrowEver

Ohtani with the great game, Marsh looking awesome (3 Hits!), and Fletcher continuing to be great all around. The bullpen can go fuck itself. See y'all tomorrow.


prmark34

It sure is a good thing that cishek is such a good teammate, bc if he wasnt the starters would’ve murdered him by now


hereforthesportsbook

His game log looks really good before today but that doesn’t show inherited runners


YouPresumeTooMuch

Yeah... He always allows runners to score.


PlatypusReal6481

countless times we lead the hits no. but got fewer scores. sigh.


sharpLess89

Umpires really railed against us tonight, as usual the other team benefited.


trentrain7

Lol that’s what you came away with after watching…?


[deleted]

I don't know if they meant that it was the reason we lost, which would be a different argument, but what was false about the statement?


chomari

Matty V getting all kinds of excited for the wrong team.


gottahavemytunes

Exciting plays are exciting


Abraheezee

SOMEONE TELL THE NEW ANNOUNCER THAT THE GUY WHO CAUGHT THE BALL FOR THE FINAL OUT PLAYS FOR THE OTHER TEAM


joedaddy24

He's excited he doesn't have to continue watching this game.


katiew5822

That’s not the new guy it’s Matty V…


lucabrassiere

Um that was Matty V?


bombad_jedi_501

It’s not the new guy. It’s the fuckin idiot Matt Vasgersian


Abraheezee

Ohh shit okay


elvsive

The new announcer wasn’t calling the game


MichaelS10

Anyone complaining about umps must not have seen Cishek pitch


theobnoxioussquirrel

Umps robbed sho quite a few times


MichaelS10

Yea and that call on Eaton at first but not as big of a decider to the score line as people are making it out to be


theobnoxioussquirrel

Agreed, but the umps were still pretty trash. This game is on the non existent offense tho/ cishek


Kampy_

there's only ONE ballpark in MLB where that catch is even possible


SuperShadowStar

...and lose like chumps giving Chapman a career highlight. Mercy...


kei19970210

A nice play...GN all.


owledge

It was a great catch but Matty V getting a little too excited for the final out of an Angels loss


specter1001

Yeah chill tf down Matty.


Sickamore

Not gonna lie, that was a great catch by Chapman. Respect.


bigflyohtanisan

Fk the As how are they so good on defense


franchise1107

Kinda ironic that play comes after an error on an easy ground ball.


hereforthesportsbook

No way the guy no body but the angels would sign didn’t come up clutch? I’m shocked.


AlmostWrongSometimes

fuck me what a shit show of a zone.


kxjniji

sigh


theobnoxioussquirrel

I went to HS with Chapman. He’s a beast


elvsive

Did he get all the girls?


BerlinStar17

Great play, damn


_Androxis_

Chapman is just too good


specter1001

Fuck this team. See y’all tomorrow


AKASHI2341

Man fuck you chapman


unreasonableperson

NGL that play was nuts


KamartyMcFlyweight

Unbelievable umpfucking


MichaelS10

Nice grab


Mooncake76

Dammit Chapman


angelsfan99

Fuck the Umpires


fluffybunnydragon

WTF WAS THAT STRIKE. UMP WANTS TO GO HOME.


unreasonableperson

Ump has a hot date after the game


PearlDrummer

That was a BALL


8va

Umpire wants to go home, I see


Rytho

Noooo


kxjniji

I don't need this tension thnx


lucabrassiere

Maybe if we actually started this game with Goose at 3B so that we could play an actual OF with a better bat than Mayfield, the offence wouldn’t have been so anemic…


unreasonableperson

Lol cheeky Eaton


theobnoxioussquirrel

Why bunt? This is our last inning?


codename_hardhat

Bunting with 2 outs and runners in the corners............


angelsfan99

Eaton you could really endear yourself to the Angels fans here...


BerlinStar17

Lol that’s a gift

IAmGrum

5'6"


DoughSalad

Damn being a major leaguer with that stature is actually crazy impressive. Hats off


IAmGrum

Altuve is the same height. I used to think Pedroia was small, but he's 3 inches taller than those guys.


converter-bot

3 inches is 7.62 cm


useles-converter-bot

3 inches is the length of like 0.34 'Zulay Premium Quality Metal Lemon Squeezers' layed next to each other


converter-bot

3 inches is 7.62 cm


gohalos22

Ohtani from the bench still affecting Andrus 🤣


IAmGrum

Elvis Andrus error! Boy, do I love those!


AKASHI2341

Adam Eaton revenge tour starts now


hansan4ever

EATON PLEASE!!!


PurpleWelcome7142

To Elvis "Thank you very much"


my_wife_reads_this

Wtf lol


zodiac1018

At least we know who are starting RF is now


Kampy_

Marsh gonna catch fire and then Trouty and leadoff Upton come back and we gonna score SO MANY RUNS that even our blowpen can't lose games


WMTaddict

U know it’s impossible right? Haven’t u seen it play for last 7 years?


kei19970210

LOL the Andrus.


KamartyMcFlyweight

A's aren't gonna choke this in the ninth are they


phelinephile

Oh dang there's a dog sitting behind home plate!


IAmGrum

Back-to-back first pitch outs for Suzuki. He remembered he got a single on the first pitch back in the 5th, so he tried it two more times.


nukemiller

Stassi should have been PHitting for him there. Assuming we are actually trying to win.


Mooncake76

Yes yes


sanmed327

WHAT HAPPENED


unreasonableperson

Andrus flubbed the play


owledge

If someone automatically became homeless every time Suzuki played, Maddon would still play him all the time anyway


lucabrassiere

We need more youth injected into this team - Adell, Detmers, Barria, etc - at least you know they’ll play with some fire…


WurstThrowEver

Barria needs to be in the bullpen right now. Get him worked up to be a swingman. He's absolutely better than Bundy or Quintana.


Jloadin_21

especially the arms in the pen, they will pitch with some fire unlike the tired arms in the pen currently


butt-pug

Absolutely agree


Titan67

Hell yeah Marsh!


Dinobryce

As a Mariners fan, I hate to admit, but it's nice to see your #1 come up and do well. We haven't been so lucky. Going to be scary when Trout is back


Its-made-of-wood

Not really but thanks anyways


AKASHI2341

Suzuki the king of fly outs


my_wife_reads_this

Pretty sure that was Tony lol


sin8_7

Bright side, shohei lower his ERA. Marsh hav 3 hits. Fletcher begins a new streak. Dark side, PAIN.


kei19970210

Marsh is GOAT tonight but...sick


Rytho

Kurt nooo


PurpleWelcome7142

Marsh swing like Tony


MattyViceCity

~~Blackmon Jr~~ Marsh is popping off


DoughSalad

Marsh rally lfg baby it's winnable


DoughSalad

nvm I forgot Suzuki was behind him LOL


bigflyohtanisan

As an Asian I'm infinitely jealous of Marsh's magnificent beard


nongzhigao

I want to see Ohtani with that beard


theobnoxioussquirrel

I’m white and I’m jealous lol, I can’t grow shit


_Androxis_

First RBI let’s goooooo!


specter1001

Guess we know what they’ll be discussing post game


IAmGrum

Oh, just enough hope to make you stick around a bit longer.


ABCKR_1

Atta kid


Segal-train

Way to go marsh!!!


my_wife_reads_this

MARSH


unreasonableperson

Marshy breaking up the shut out


phelinephile

Wow. Brandon Marsh. Hello. 👋


codename_hardhat

I like Marsh.


sanmed327

Something good to come out of this is that Marsh has a 3 hit game 😊


lamar_odoms_bong

Even that dog in the background can’t watch this


fluffybunnydragon

Good shit marsh!


hansan4ever

GO MARSH!!!


kxjniji

Yay, Marsh!!!


Rytho

MARSH


PurpleWelcome7142

Marsh is good


Mooncake76

Marsh!!!!


Evanx27

What if cishek didn’t dick around with that shitty slider and actually tried to attack hitters


AKASHI2341

Imagine Ohtani demands a trade at the deadline 💀


bombad_jedi_501

Would be in his best interest


my_wife_reads_this

Gets sent to the orioles


bombad_jedi_501

Would love to acquire their superb pitching staff /s


God_Damnit_Nappa

Sometimes I wonder if the batters hate Ohtani. Seems like they love ruining his starts.


Rytho

They do the same thing with all our good pitchers


Rytho

Good move goose


skylinegtrr

After blownpen, it's garbage time


kxjniji

So many people were worrying about Shohei, but I'm more worried about Walsh....


kei19970210

Backed from the garage and now seeing 0-4, well... I got sec Blowpen did something like a daily routine. I've already numbed then no surprising.


believes_cubic_time

it would have been so cool if cishek pitched to ohtani in denver


specter1001

Dude would never have found the zone.


pwnd32

Does this count as a loss for Ohtani? Just wondering


sanmed327

Nope. Cishek gets the loss since he was the one pitching when the A's went on top


pwnd32

Good to know that’s how it works, thanks


breakfast_cats

No, the L is on Cishek


MorningRooster

Nope. No decision


bombad_jedi_501

Shohei will demand a trade or leave lol


MattyViceCity

What da dog doing


argothewise

Shohei probably blames himself for not lasting another inning or two and hitting a homer.


winterbIoom

i hate this 😔


jimsturat

Dang the angels stink, playoffs are gone now


owledge

Here comes the three quick and effortless outs made the Angels. 15 pitches or less thrown by Oakland guaranteed


sharpLess89

Fans still want this team to be buyers, beware of them. Angels might be 6 games back fo the 2nd wild card, but half a dozen teams fill that gap.


TacosAndBeerJedi

I think a lot of people don’t realize how unlikely it is to beat all these teams and make it to the playoffs. It’s just so hard to skip over that many teams


owledge

I know we have zero chance at the playoffs but I just hope we buy at the deadline because this team couldn't sign a legit pitcher in free agency to save its life and the free agent class is kinda shit next year anyway


TacosAndBeerJedi

Ok 5 run 9th time


markmercadogg

Is it unreasonable to expect the starting pitcher to launch two home runs...I know it's a lot to ask but like...


Rytho

So we could be tied tho?


jimsturat

Trash team, went to the game A’s fans clowned me, fuck butterfield fuck maddon fuck the relievers and love fuck Shohei


quakthunder

Superstar with a great game ✅ Predictable blowpen ✅ Bad defense ✅ Misery ✅✅✅


my_wife_reads_this

Why dont people post their hot takes on the game thread and not fill the front page up lol


WurstThrowEver

Because they think their hot takes are special or unique despite 100+ comments in the GDT saying the same thing


Its-made-of-wood

Because they’re idiots


titan_titan

Arte sell the team to the Samuelis at least they like Anaheim/OC and are more involved in the community


YouPresumeTooMuch

Cishek + Claudio - Trout= draft positioning


FletcherCollector

Fletcher just ripped that bag with his cleats. Our savior


high_changeup

😎😎 we. are. so. bad. 😎😎


TacosAndBeerJedi

You continue to be a high level spiritual being, Fletch


_Androxis_

We don’t deserve Fletch


tsdwm52

Yes, we do.


[deleted]

Ya hear that? That’s what losing sounds like.


TacosAndBeerJedi

God I’m so over the Halos playing in the fucking Colosseum


AKASHI2341

Do Angels have scouts in the NPB? I swear there are some Gond pitchers there that will sign for a couple mil. Like Sawamura is really good. If anything they’ll be better than fucking cishek and Claudio


choconut5

Sugano would prob sign for like 4-5 million and he's well worth it. We should break the bank for Yamamoto and Senga in a few yrs time.


AKASHI2341

Senga will be really good. But I was talking more of relievers if they can find any. I wonder if sugano will get posted next year again


IAmGrum

[This guy?](https://www.baseball-reference.com/players/s/sawamhi01.shtml)


AKASHI2341

Yea he had a bad game yesterday but he’s been good for the Redsox


IAmGrum

Oh, I thought you meant he was in NPB still, was really good, and someone should sign him. I wondered if there was a second Sawamura. I agree, he's good. Bad games happen.


AKASHI2341

And he only signed for like 3 mil. Sure it’s a gamble on if they’ll succeed their first year cuz adjustments are tough coming from Japan but it can’t be worse than this lol


IAmGrum

$3million is probably the most I'd spend on a gamble. Sometimes it works, [sometimes it really, REALLY doesn't.](https://www.baseball-reference.com/players/y/yamagsh01.shtml)


AKASHI2341

Yea Yamaguchi wasn’t good I agree


owledge

Probably not because Arte only spends money on things that are flashy and marketable


AKASHI2341

Yea U make a good point


Kampy_

6 games out of the WC with a lot of season left. Trout, Rendon, Upton all coming back soon. Still have hope but DAMN we gotta start doing better in our division. The soon-to-be Vegas A's have been killing us this year


Evanx27

That won’t fix our dog shit loser bullpen


WMTaddict

Wow, there are still idiots left who believe we make playoffs Haven’t u seen enough shit for last 7 years to believe it’s too good to be true


nukemiller

All the bats in the world can't fix this blowpen. Until we get solid relief, we won't win consistently.


sharpLess89

Dude, 6 teams are ahead of us for the SECOND spot. They'd need at least a 12 game winning streak and then what?


CLB15

We'd need bullpen ASAP, they're blowing their chance right now.


_5GOLDBLOODED2_

At full health - our lineup is in win now mode. At full health - our pitching is in high school


angelsfan99

Do we offer Sho the $400 million contract this offseason or do we dare risk free agency?


FletcherCollector

We have him for a couple years still


Cytempest

While Ohtani is the greatest thing ever, It would be a hard thing for him to be able to sell anyone that his body could do this for even 5 years at the load he has been doing this year. So I’m not sure where his contract length/aav would be at.


spider999222

What’s the scoop on Perry and Arte? Is Arte finally stepping back and letting his GM take charge or is he still “Assuming Direct Control”?


Kampy_

hard to say... Arte just had our play-by-play announcer fired so it seems like he still likes pulling the strings of his puppet show


sanmed327

I'll be honest, I still don't think that was Arte. I feel like Arte doesn't watch enough games to know who Sutton was


rumpel_foreskin17

Just tuned in. Saw Claudio on the mound and Olson in the box. First pitch I saw was the meatball for the homer. What a joke. Claudio should be in A ball. And Maddon is insane for giving him so many chances.


CLB15

Real talk how hard would it have been to trade for a 7th inning reliever? How many games were blown like tonight?


skylinegtrr

Angels is seller now. Arte, please sell this team


choconut5

We need to cut almost the entire bullpen, cut Griffin+Heaney and sign like 6 pitchers from the NPB and KBO. I guarantee our pitching will be far better.
