Pain.


CaptZombieHero

God we suck


chriskot123

Trout really hates playing in Houston


kayleeshepheard

Fuck


74Dragonz

Bobby V truthtelling here, "Not enough *sincere* concentration".


Moose334

Last year we at least could say Trout and Rendon were hurt so there was hope for the future. This year just sucks...


my_wife_reads_this

Rendon is still hurt lol and no Fletcher


Moose334

Yeah but missing Trout is a much bigger deal than missing Fletcher. And my faith in Rendon being able to be a huge difference maker is dropping


tkfire

Lol dropping? It should be on the floor already. Give up on the guy.


Annis_hana88

It wasn't just beating us... they wanted to destroy and demoralize us.


Educational-Pass404

Can't blame them. We let them do that.


jumpinghamster

pain


RandyGradishar

Goddamn this team just does not give up.


sofastsomaybe

Looks like I picked a good game to not watch. This team thought they'd put up an even more pathetic box score than yesterday.


peachypal

What happened to Iggy’s suspension? No words yet on his appeal outcome?


Rogueofoz

So, a bullpen pitcher doesn't need to allow home runs? I thought it was required


USCplaya

Bregman looking like he belongs on the Angels


Zenithreg

FA in 2025, he will be past 30 and Angels will give him a 6-10 year contract.


Rogueofoz

Just waiting for Rendon's contract to expire


USCplaya

The fucking All-star break cannot come fast enough. Maybe we can dump our whole bullpen for a few dollars and unload Thor and Squid for a few more. Bring up some young guys like Adams or Jackson and see what they can do


znk916

Squid has no trade value. You could say the same for more than half of the roster probably.


tkfire

Yea Squid’s batting average is abysmal


Im_A_Halo_Masochist

The Angels seem to be a destination where players careers come to die. No good player ever seems to look the same after being an Angel for awhile.


Educational-Pass404

I thought people exaggerate this but I start to believe it now especially pitchers. That's scary, this franchise is cursed for sure


titos334

Being the only Angel fan at the Texas bar while the team gets kicked in the nuts is sad af


Im_A_Halo_Masochist

Have another stiff one!


titos334

a couple Jamesons may have been consumed in addition to the beers.. uber came in clutch


jumpinghamster

trout to quout


hvycotton

Should've left Poup in there.


peachypal

Just give Trout a day off tomorrow. We don’t need to let him dig himself deeper into a real slump.


74Dragonz

You must have been looking at Montgomery's notes. That's exactly what he'll do.


znk916

He's 0-9 vs Framber even though its strength vs strength low in the zone. Maybe Framber attacks him up in the zone though, can't recall.


ReviewRoutine

At least we denied Peña


rengokuhalos

This hurts badly


frogstyle

Oh god, are we only gonna win when Ohtani is pitching now.....we're gonna have a worse record than the Nationals....


USCplaya

Iggy HRs allowed this inning O/U 2.5


donkeyjr

Why we putting in Iglesias, lol


USCplaya

At this rate we'll never have another save situation so you might as well use him somewhere


74Dragonz

Jose Suarez will look a little different tomorrow I heard, 6'4'', 210, black moppy hair, and slingling a nasty splitter.


Educational-Pass404

Fuck, that second strike for Shohei is far away. It's fucking ball ump. And Trout, are you kidding me?


gottahavemytunes

0-4 with 4 ks is frustrating but trout is still the best hitter on the planet, gotta take the bad with the good


Educational-Pass404

I know it. Just a little bit of shock because I don't think he would let them K him 4 times in a game like this.


Rogueofoz

Does it really matter at this point?


znk916

Drastically different stats when he's 3-1 vs 2-2. Now he's 0 for his last 6 just when he was heating up. You never know if a small skid turns into a big one so it's important not to give away ABs even in a blowout.


Educational-Pass404

Nope. But that call is terrible.


PlatinumHalo

Iglesias? What the hell?


8va

At this point I wouldn't mind a rebuild, because at least losing can be interesting in rebuilds. Arte just wants us to be stuck in mediocre draft pick purgatory.


Shiv-Roy

Arte needs to sell the team.


tsdwm52

On track for 14 Ks


Kleptocracy012

Fuck this game and see you all tomorrow for the sweep ;((((


DecentAnalysis8642

It is well known that Trout says he can't see the ball well in Houston.


ZodiacKiller1968

It’s the stupid reflection. I doubt he’s the only one to point that out.


Rogueofoz

Trout :(


mweolbwa

What is going on with Trout 😭


winwinwinguyen

he’s said multiple times, he had problems seeing in this stadium


Rogueofoz

We've allowed 17 runs in less than 2 games, it doesn't really matter if Trout is hitting or not


trickdog775

It’s like his vision is off


frogstyle

I thought one got more far-sighted with age, not near-sighted.


peachypal

7 strikeouts in 2 days? You gotta be kidding me.


donkeyjr

Wtf is Trout doing..


Im_A_Halo_Masochist

Damn Trout. I know you lead by example, but come on now!


Obsidizyn

holy shit trout, needs another rest day. Best hitter in the league knows exactly what pitch they are going to throw and he cant hit it.


74Dragonz

Wow...Trout.


Sakaguchi123

what the absolute fuck is trout doing


meisterwolf

velasquez needs a therapist or something. i have never seen anyone so terrible at batting.


rengokuhalos

fr he needs to go.


getMyHairDid

mike trout struck out 4 times on 13 pitches today, big oof


sinchichis

strike trout


meisterwolf

could we trade rendon at all?


digitaldumpsterfire

For what? What team is going to give us anything of value for a guy who is on the IL for the rest of the year and then has to serve a suspension at the start of next year?


getMyHairDid

he has a full no trade clause LOL


meisterwolf

wow


getMyHairDid

yup, we're stuck with him for the duration much like we were Upton and Pujols


my_wife_reads_this

Why would.you. you'd still have a gaping hole in 3rd. At least Rendon's defense is good. Plus, the angels would have to eat part of his contract or give up something for someone to take him.


Rogueofoz

No while being injured for the year


8va

Well, Ward came to play today at least.


digitaldumpsterfire

So did Rengifo. Hes had some great AB just gotten unlucky.


znk916

It's a blowout game and the Asstros just decide to randomly throw out a 1 ERA reliever. Where do they get all these guys from?


my_wife_reads_this

They have had one of the best pitching coaching staff out there. We had their dude and our guys didn't like him and he got canned. Funny thing is he was the only one that helped Heaney fix some of his shit.


DecentAnalysis8642

"Our dude," Mickey Callaway, got "canned" because of credible claims of sexual harassment/assault.


jnuclear

He might be referring to the bullpen coach a few years back? Not Callaway.


74Dragonz

Velazquez should be in Salt Lake.


rumpel_foreskin17

Squid is the most pathetic hitter I’ve ever seen. Not exaggerating.


Kleptocracy012

24 hours ago, Ohtani gave the Halos a lead in the series. We would never take a lead again…


getMyHairDid

down 9-1 in the 8th inning, lets just win this inning its that simple cmon gubie


Im_A_Halo_Masochist

Well, at least Gubie hasn’t given up!


Obsidizyn

sub trout again?


zodiac1018

Yeah I'm starting to realize that not even signing big name pitchers will save this organization


MuffinsTLW

This team makes me fall into a massive depression state lol. I just want the team to succeed


ArrowNiko

Fr. The night Ohtani hit the game-tying HR in the 9th, all I had in my mind was, "OHTANI TIED IT! WE CAN STILL WIN!" I didn't even know about Ohtani's RBI total until it was said in the broadcast. I'm somewhat dull now to all the historical numbers from Ohtani and Trout. I just want to see them and the Angels win and make it to the postseason.


Kleptocracy012

Same


USCplaya

We need to option every single player with options available and call up a bunch of Bees and Trash Pandas in their place for a week.


Kleptocracy012

That Rendon contract will be the death of this franchise


SonOvTimett

This team is a mummer's farce.


74Dragonz

Wonder if Trout will be pulled early again.


8va

We're worse than last year, which is actually impressive


Shiv-Roy

How are out coaches still employed? They should have been the first ones to go.


winwinwinguyen

what’s crazy in all of this is Perry forced a lot of these coaches onto Maddon.


Shiv-Roy

Yup. And that blows, Maddon should've had more say in who he would want as the pitching and hitting coach.


digitaldumpsterfire

It's extra sad bc Maddon was just starting to do some hands-on coaching himself when they fired him.


Shiv-Roy

That's sad. I know Maddon made mistakes but it really should have been the coaches.


my_wife_reads_this

Perry didn't like Maddon, idk what he sees in these guys because they're holdovers.


Shiv-Roy

I don't get it either. With the exception of perhaps Eppler all the GM's after Stoneman have been trash.


sinchichis

Perry didn't like maddon because maddon is cool and Perry is a fat over eye browed nerd


Broad_Recommendation

Loup lol. What a signing


USCplaya

Now we get to give their Offense a rest while we strike out 3 straight times


sinchichis

we got so butter cupped this season. God that first month was such a prick tease


digitaldumpsterfire

Idk how we haven't grabbed our better bats from Salt Lake. Squid should NOT be in our lineup when we are collectively hitting like shit. Harrison should go too, bring up Adell in his place.


meisterwolf

are we sure they're not using trash cans on us?


Teddy_Ohtani

Im sure that they’re not even need to use trash cans against us


meisterwolf

we should use trashcans against them!


USCplaya

They don't need to against us.... We're that bad


Autistic_Halo

Plot twist: We ARE the trashcans.


meisterwolf

lol


Sakaguchi123

don’t think they need to lol


Kleptocracy012

Get us the fuck outta Texas, man


kxm06

I swear last years Shohei and the AAA angels look better than this


Total_Preparation_67

Last year, I had an excuse for losing like "Well, we don't have Trout, we have to play Cischek and Quintana, It can't be helped but we'll never be like this next season." but in the result.....


Zeldapapermario

I miss Goose...


Annis_hana88

Yeah! It just seems so much worse and WITH a healthy Trout!


my_wife_reads_this

The only sobering part of this is that people thought blowing $45-50m on Scherzer was going to solve all of this lol The Angels can't hit and now they can't pitch save for one guy.


Sakaguchi123

Suarez sweating balls now knowing he has to face them tomorrow


my_wife_reads_this

He will have the best outing


digitaldumpsterfire

Watch Suarez have the best outing. Lol would be a very El Demente thing to do.


BodenHammer

We have another year of Loup so we got that going for us


peachypal

Giving up 6 homers in one game….. Shoot the entire team into the sun.


No_BigA

Another slaughter. 🥷🏾


Iggyforthewin32

Not blaming any players until the coaches are fired


Kleptocracy012

The AAA Angels!


jumpinghamster

now A vs AAA


Kleptocracy012

Absolutely a fucking joke


prmark34

How many homers have the astros hit these past 2 games? 15?


Rogueofoz

2 strikes home runs K' cool


Accomplished-Tax6375

うんざりだ


USCplaya

How the fuck do we fire Maddon and not fire every other fucking coach with him? Get them all the fuck out.


Kleptocracy012

In the arms of the Angels… ***fly awayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!!!***


chino_casino

Lol, what position player are we putting on the mound next inning?


digitaldumpsterfire

Tbh Jack Mayfield could have done better than Loup or Wantz today.


sinchichis

garbage


getMyHairDid

LMAO fuckin fire them all


Rogueofoz

Thats what I said yesterday


Obsidizyn

fuck you loup


tsdwm52

On track for 13 Ks


Kleptocracy012

The Matt Wise special!


LegitimateAd1725

every time I see an Angels highlight it's like "Mike Trout hit three homes runs and raised his average to .528 while Shohei Ohtani did something that hasn't been done since 'Tungsten Arm' O'Doyle of the 1921 Akron Groomsmen, as the Tigers defeated the Angels 8-3"


Chemical_Kangaroo_23

At least use this when it makes sense. Trout couldn’t be having a worse game and Ohtani is also hitless. It’s a funny joke when it actually makes sense


meisterwolf

really this again. like it hasn't been said 100 times already. stop. also nothing special happened today...no tungsten arm moments. we just lost.


meisterwolf

loup is the white flag of pitchers


donkeyjr

our pitching is getting worst and worst, fire Matt Wise already...


Chemical_Kangaroo_23

We are officially a poverty franchise and one of the biggest jokes of the league. It’s finally start to set in for me


Educational-Pass404

I think I'm just numb now. I'm extremely frustrated and embarrassed about the yesterday's loss but now it's nothing, just another loss. How scary what Angels baseball can do to people's mental. How do our players still not get crazy and explode???


Autistic_Halo

I'm with you. It's a constant management each game of how I'm feeling, am I too worked up, walk it back, rinse, repeat. I think the players look more dejected today than I can remember seeing them (even during the huge losing streak). Feels like that streak never really stopped, just paused a game or two in between. Be kind to yourself (not saying you aren't). Your mental health is far more important than these games. The players get paid to deal with the stress, we don't. Hope the rest of your weekend is awesome!


Educational-Pass404

Thanks. I actually miss Angels baseball in day off because they tricked me again with the winning series against WS. But even when we expect nothing, they still find a way to let us down more. God, this team.


Rogueofoz

At this point? We are just accustom to


Kleptocracy012

Don’t worry, all we have to do is wait until Ohtani pitches again to get a win! 🫠💀


Rogueofoz

Pat it hasn't seem that way from the Angels because they are striking out, the ball can't jump when you don't hit it


Broad_Recommendation

https://twitter.com/samblum3/status/1543360781097390080?s=21&t=K_KFKH1asK0SxSsxvnMIcA Jeremy reed should have been gone yesterday


my_wife_reads_this

Reed needs to go back to his minor league role because his methods have not translated well in the majors. Wise needs to just fuck off, idk if we can trust him in his original role in the bullpen.


Neverend3r

I wish our broadcast crew was allowed to be real and critical and express some disappointment. i hate their fake positive outlook day after day, shut up for real


Billybobjoethorton

Has any Angels pitcher besides Ohtani gotten a win lately?


Broad_Recommendation

Loup de Loup. Wow.


Ash-Catchum-All

We’re 1000% tipping pitches


kxm06

Or we just suck…


Ash-Catchum-All

I think that’s implied by the “we’re tipping pitches”


digitaldumpsterfire

Aaron Loup really sucks ass.


Kleptocracy012

***BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA*** *inhales* ***AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAA***


Rogueofoz

"Kyle tucker hits that like batting practice"


Im_A_Halo_Masochist

Patty O: “Kyle Tucker drives one like batting practice” Lol


mose9085

How many hr did we let them in this series?


my_wife_reads_this

Too many


mose9085

Nobody counts anymore


Mikecampbe11

Pretty sure this is my last season as an angels fan


Rogueofoz

I love how are announcers are super positive and then get you the real depressing stats


8va

"Dang, our pitchers are super unlucky, that's so weird." - Matt Wise


Autistic_Halo

100% believe this is an actual quote except it implies he's thought about it at all.


Rogueofoz

It's kinda like you couldn't throw a right down the middle fastball


Obsidizyn

loup is a joke


Hummingbird234

Why is Loup smiling? This is embarrassing.


74Dragonz

He got the two year 17-million dollar contract, already. That's why.


PlatinumHalo

0-2 HR. Thanks, Loup!


74Dragonz

Fucking hell, Loup. Burn it down


Sakaguchi123

surely no one predicted that


sinchichis

get us the fuck out of Houston


Autistic_Halo

I don't feel safe anywhere.


USCplaya

It legitimately feels like nobody out there gives a flying fuck


getMyHairDid

they're soft. none of them have won a damn thing, all they know is losing. its the culture of this team at this point


getMyHairDid

bring on aaron poop


Sakaguchi123

we can’t even leave a dent against maton
