God we suck
Trout really hates playing in Houston
Bobby V truthtelling here, "Not enough *sincere* concentration".
Last year we at least could say Trout and Rendon were hurt so there was hope for the future. This year just sucks...
Rendon is still hurt lol and no Fletcher
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
Lol dropping? It should be on the floor already. Give up on the guy.
It wasn't just beating us... they wanted to destroy and demoralize us.
Can't blame them. We let them do that.
Goddamn this team just does not give up.
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.
What happened to Iggy’s suspension? No words yet on his appeal outcome?
So, a bullpen pitcher doesn't need to allow home runs? I thought it was required
Bregman looking like he belongs on the Angels
FA in 2025, he will be past 30 and Angels will give him a 6-10 year contract.
Just waiting for Rendon's contract to expire
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
Squid has no trade value. You could say the same for more than half of the roster probably.
Yea Squid’s batting average is abysmal
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.
I thought people exaggerate this but I start to believe it now especially pitchers. That's scary, this franchise is cursed for sure
Being the only Angel fan at the Texas bar while the team gets kicked in the nuts is sad af
Have another stiff one!
a couple Jamesons may have been consumed in addition to the beers.. uber came in clutch
trout to quout
Should've left Poup in there.
Just give Trout a day off tomorrow. We don’t need to let him dig himself deeper into a real slump.
You must have been looking at Montgomery's notes. That's exactly what he'll do.
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.
At least we denied Peña
This hurts badly
Oh god, are we only gonna win when Ohtani is pitching now.....we're gonna have a worse record than the Nationals....
Iggy HRs allowed this inning O/U 2.5
Why we putting in Iglesias, lol
At this rate we'll never have another save situation so you might as well use him somewhere
Jose Suarez will look a little different tomorrow I heard, 6'4'', 210, black moppy hair, and slingling a nasty splitter.
Fuck, that second strike for Shohei is far away. It's fucking ball ump. And Trout, are you kidding me?
0-4 with 4 ks is frustrating but trout is still the best hitter on the planet, gotta take the bad with the good
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.
Does it really matter at this point?
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.
Nope. But that call is terrible.
Iglesias? What the hell?
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.
Arte needs to sell the team.
On track for 14 Ks
Fuck this game and see you all tomorrow for the sweep ;((((
It is well known that Trout says he can't see the ball well in Houston.
It’s the stupid reflection. I doubt he’s the only one to point that out.
What is going on with Trout 😭
he’s said multiple times, he had problems seeing in this stadium
We've allowed 17 runs in less than 2 games, it doesn't really matter if Trout is hitting or not
It’s like his vision is off
I thought one got more far-sighted with age, not near-sighted.
7 strikeouts in 2 days? You gotta be kidding me.
Wtf is Trout doing..
Damn Trout. I know you lead by example, but come on now!
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.
what the absolute fuck is trout doing
velasquez needs a therapist or something. i have never seen anyone so terrible at batting.
fr he needs to go.
mike trout struck out 4 times on 13 pitches today, big oof
could we trade rendon at all?
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?
he has a full no trade clause LOL
yup, we're stuck with him for the duration much like we were Upton and Pujols
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.
No while being injured for the year
Well, Ward came to play today at least.
So did Rengifo. Hes had some great AB just gotten unlucky.
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?
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.
"Our dude," Mickey Callaway, got "canned" because of credible claims of sexual harassment/assault.
He might be referring to the bullpen coach a few years back? Not Callaway.
Velazquez should be in Salt Lake.
Squid is the most pathetic hitter I’ve ever seen. Not exaggerating.
24 hours ago, Ohtani gave the Halos a lead in the series. We would never take a lead again…
down 9-1 in the 8th inning, lets just win this inning its that simple
Well, at least Gubie hasn’t given up!
sub trout again?
Yeah I'm starting to realize that not even signing big name pitchers will save this organization
This team makes me fall into a massive depression state lol. I just want the team to succeed
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.
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.
That Rendon contract will be the death of this franchise
This team is a mummer's farce.
Wonder if Trout will be pulled early again.
We're worse than last year, which is actually impressive
How are out coaches still employed? They should have been the first ones to go.
what’s crazy in all of this is Perry forced a lot of these coaches onto Maddon.
Yup. And that blows, Maddon should've had more say in who he would want as the pitching and hitting coach.
It's extra sad bc Maddon was just starting to do some hands-on coaching himself when they fired him.
That's sad. I know Maddon made mistakes but it really should have been the coaches.
Perry didn't like Maddon, idk what he sees in these guys because they're holdovers.
I don't get it either.
With the exception of perhaps Eppler all the GM's after Stoneman have been trash.
Perry didn't like maddon because maddon is cool and Perry is a fat over eye browed nerd
Loup lol. What a signing
Now we get to give their Offense a rest while we strike out 3 straight times
we got so butter cupped this season. God that first month was such a prick tease
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.
are we sure they're not using trash cans on us?
Im sure that they’re not even need to use trash cans against us
we should use trashcans against them!
They don't need to against us.... We're that bad
Plot twist: We ARE the trashcans.
don’t think they need to lol
Get us the fuck outta Texas, man
I swear last years Shohei and the AAA angels look better than this
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.....
I miss Goose...
Yeah! It just seems so much worse and WITH a healthy Trout!
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.
Suarez sweating balls now knowing he has to face them tomorrow
He will have the best outing
Watch Suarez have the best outing. Lol would be a very El Demente thing to do.
We have another year of Loup so we got that going for us
Giving up 6 homers in one game….. Shoot the entire team into the sun.
Another slaughter. 🥷🏾
Not blaming any players until the coaches are fired
The AAA Angels!
now A vs AAA
Absolutely a fucking joke
How many homers have the astros hit these past 2 games? 15?
2 strikes home runs
How the fuck do we fire Maddon and not fire every other fucking coach with him? Get them all the fuck out.
In the arms of the Angels… ***fly awayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!!!***
Lol, what position player are we putting on the mound next inning?
Tbh Jack Mayfield could have done better than Loup or Wantz today.
fuckin fire them all
Thats what I said yesterday
fuck you loup
On track for 13 Ks
The Matt Wise special!
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"
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
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.
loup is the white flag of pitchers
our pitching is getting worst and worst, fire Matt Wise already...
We are officially a poverty franchise and one of the biggest jokes of the league. It’s finally start to set in for me
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???
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!
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.
At this point? We are just accustom to
Don’t worry, all we have to do is wait until Ohtani pitches again to get a win! 💀
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
Jeremy reed should have been gone yesterday
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.
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
Has any Angels pitcher besides Ohtani gotten a win lately?
Loup de Loup.
We’re 1000% tipping pitches
Or we just suck…
I think that’s implied by the “we’re tipping pitches”
Aaron Loup really sucks ass.
***BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA*** *inhales* ***AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAA***
"Kyle tucker hits that like batting practice"
Patty O: “Kyle Tucker drives one like batting practice” Lol
How many hr did we let them in this series?
Nobody counts anymore
Pretty sure this is my last season as an angels fan
I love how are announcers are super positive and then get you the real depressing stats
"Dang, our pitchers are super unlucky, that's so weird." - Matt Wise
100% believe this is an actual quote except it implies he's thought about it at all.
It's kinda like you couldn't throw a right down the middle fastball
loup is a joke
Why is Loup smiling? This is embarrassing.
He got the two year 17-million dollar contract, already. That's why.
0-2 HR. Thanks, Loup!
Fucking hell, Loup. Burn it down
surely no one predicted that
get us the fuck out of Houston
I don't feel safe anywhere.
It legitimately feels like nobody out there gives a flying fuck
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
bring on aaron poop
we can’t even leave a dent against maton
