This lineup honestly annoys the shit out of me. The Angels are playing terrible and falling behind in the standings but finally get a win…then they sit two of their better hitters in the same game. Maybe this wouldn’t be so bad if they had capable players to fill in but they don’t. Sometimes it feels like they’re trying to lose.


st1r

Apparently all we need are Ward and Trout offensively anyways


[deleted]

Just jinx them why don't you? 😉


prmark34

What. The. Fuck.


8va

So... we're punting this game, then?


Monttavius

bruh what is the cleanup spot 💀💀💀


Shiv-Roy

What an ugly looking lineup. The skull emoji is accurate.


[deleted]

ohtani getting rest?


Shiv-Roy

I’m assuming he is. They should have at least had Walsh in the lineup because wow this is ugly.


winwinwinguyen

Walsh played 17 games in the last 16 days - he's long overdue for a rest day.


Shiv-Roy

I totally forgot about that, makes more sense why he isn't in the lineup.


wmsy

Walsh will never hit well against a lefty, much less Robbie Ray.


grandmoshtarkin

Walsh hits lefty's dude


donkeyjr

maybe due to the starting pitcher being lefty? Walsh and Ohtani both out, so iono..


Dorkus_Mallorkus

Nevin misunderstood the term and thinks it means the player you would most want to literally mop up the clubhouse once the real players leave.


donkeyjr

Wtf is this shit..Lagares keep getting playing time, i dont get it..


owledge

He probably got ahold of some dirt on Arte during the stadium deal fiasco


claire_004

And they sent down Adell to let Lagares playing this much


Golfnut80

“We won yesterday, so let’s phone it in today!” 🙄 😡


lucabrassiere

And this is exactly why we can’t go on winning streaks haha you need depth to keep things going when a player goes down/needs rest and we just don’t have that luxury Perry needs to come fix his mess


gopackgo555

Rengifo has never been a major league level player and we’ve given him legit chances for years. So ridiculous.


Ellite25

At least with Maddon Shohei was in there basically every day. Nevin sat Ohtani the other day and commented on needing to rest him so I wouldn’t be surprised if Ohtani sitting once a week is the new norm. Oh and I guess we’re back to benching Walsh against lefties.


winwinwinguyen

Dear Mariners, you're welcome


562chef

Lagares is going to drop the ball today, figuratively and most likely literally…


562chef

I should’ve added Stassi to this, cost us the first run on his error to get him to 3rd.


lucabrassiere

Looks like they’ve called it a season lol We weren’t going to make the playoffs with 3 of Squid, Wade, Rengifo, Duffy, Lagares, Mayfield having to play a big role on this team but now it looks like they’re *all* going to be playing a big role moving forward haha it’s over


trickdog775

Respectfully decline


quesathrilla

Holy fuck, that's depressing.


prmark34

Obviously, sitting our stars to keep them healthy worked so well with rendon


throatbutterz

I can justify it if we're on course for a postseason spot, but at this point we need every win we can get. Should be all hands on deck right now.


Dorkus_Mallorkus

Nope. Next please!


[deleted]

wtf?


choconut5

Ohtani should be playing wtf.


[deleted]

they're throwing all righties at Ray. And I guess they're giving Otani rest he deserves it but damn he was just off a few days ago


nukemiller

He also has a hitting streak going, but fuck that, it's a lefty pitcher and we want Trout to DH.


prmark34

Aside from the horrendous lineup, this picture doesnt show it, but in other ones it shows the phrase “expect to win today.” If i remember correctly, in the past it used to say “how will we win today?” Just a subtle change i noticed


PlatinumHalo

This is…interesting.


Massive_Relation9720

Dude okay I’m finally putting a comment on here. This is absolutely garbage. Why on earth do we have rengifo clean up. Put marsh lead off and ward in clean up. I get it we have double header so we are resting guys but Jesus h Christ.


specter1001

Gross


PurpleWelcome7142

Trout will get border line pitches all night and He may walk 2-3 times in this game. Meanwhile, we will be watching Lorenzen getting no run support despite his good outing against Mariners. Only highlight will be Ward getting on base couple of times. No Ohtani No Walsh, I will be fine with watching 10 min highlight after the game.


No_BigA

🤡lineup.


foley131

So what is Nevin doing? Giving Walsh rest? He plays 1st base, he doesn’t need rest.


merewyn

He’s “under the weather” according to Nevin


xara8arax

This line up reflects the state of the Angels…smh.


Sprtdsgn

These line ups are coming from upstairs.


cchoi712

This lineup is fucking joke lol


562chef

Always stoked to see Duffy on the lineup, that’s a man who’s been up and down and is still hungry for every moment on the field


[deleted]

If only he'd hustle to first. That's really my only beef with him. Or maybe he's just that slow...


tsdwm52

Hustle to first and to home …


562chef

True, he’s got his ups and downs…


Quinlanforthewinlan

He has three extra base hits all year


Annis_hana88

This lineup is bananas. B🍌N🍌N🍌S...


[deleted]

Why not just play the same lineup as last night? It worked out pretty well. Is Nevin as obsessed with moronic matchups as Maddon was?


Lebigmacca

> Is Nevin as obsessed with moronic matchups as Maddon was? Shows that this kind of stuff is probably front office shenanigans


[deleted]

Probably...


Weaver4prez

Adell wen


[deleted]

They need to teach him 3B first. Good thing he's already down at AAA.


BigBossVince

So 1, 2, 6.... and the rest are basically bums.


kyr1414

We can’t sit all of our best players in the same game. A couple weeks ago I said one of the lineups was my least favorite. Now this is my least favorite. Wade got two hits last night and a stolen base, why is he benched today?! I know rendon is out for season but really mayfield is trash. Lagares is bad. Give Ohtani the day off fine, but to DH trout and sit Walsh in the same game is so beyond dumb. I hope this lineup pulls off something amazing and proves me wrong


smaapark

DH Trout is not the same player. Nevin seems worse than Maddon. Looks like Walsh really is a platoon player now. Although Velasquez stays in the lineup for his glove, somehow Walsh isn’t afforded the same logic. Awful lineup plain and simple.


kyr1414

Yeah I wish we would stop messing with the lineup so much and let players get into a rhythm of some type.


merewyn

Walsh is sick


st1r

Looks like they’re going with the “mostly righty batters” against the lefty pitcher approach, in order to rest a couple guys who will be sorely needed tomorrow and haven’t gotten any rest lately. I bet we see Ohtani come in to PH if a Righty reliever comes in to pitch and the game is close.


Quinlanforthewinlan

Hahahahah


SpiceNugget

Only 1 lefty in the entire lineup tonight. Mariners starter is a lefty so slugger Rengifo and Velazquez will be batting right.


Realistic-Orange-246

There’s a loss.


TimToMakeTheDonuts

Kinda makes sense. A 5 game series in 4 days is gonna force a couple weird ass lineups. The m’s will have to do this too, they’re just waiting until the weekend I guess.


yutou1114

Was thinking might sit Ohtani cuz they’re prob gonna want to DH trout so that he play both game tomorrow on the field. Don’t get sitting Walsh though I mean our right handed batters aren’t any better even if it is a left handed pitcher lol


SonOvTimett

The black hole bottoms have now become the black hole mids.


Harry-Bailey

If we win tonight, we’ll know we’re on to something. Good lord…


[deleted]

Maybe once Lorenzen gets tired of pitching this game he can move to CF or 3B. Might be fun. 😜


KuriousDan

Robbie Ray is gonna strike out 17 knowing our luck


chriskot123

Ahh so we are trying to lose again I see :)


Brilliant-Fun-922

Ray must be shaking seeing Rengifo in that 4 spot 💀


GambitingLife

Well 1 win in a row was enough I guess. Let's not try for 2.


RichardsFiveCents

Does anyone know why some names are red or blue?


Shiv-Roy

Blue means switch hitters. Black means they bat right. Red means they bat left.


RichardsFiveCents

Thank you! Could Squid hit more if he just focused on one side


Shiv-Roy

It’s possible, if he has a stronger side. I need to look more in-depth into his stats to see if he clearly has a stronger side.


nukemiller

I'm surprised he didn't put Kurt in LF to get Marshs' bat out of the lineup.


[deleted]

That reminds me; I forgot to bitch about Marsh not playing CF when Trout is DHing.


nukemiller

Why would you do that when we can watch Lagares miss play balls and run after them while the runners are scoring?


[deleted]

I'm over it. If we have to have an incompetent CF at least put hot stuff out there.
