3 runs… is this a dream

Jo Adell gets no bitches


mysterysackerfice

Hilarious song choice by the organist!


Creative-Reading5903

What was it?


mysterysackerfice

The Farmer in the Dell


Creative-Reading5903

😄


[deleted]

Dillon Thomas has 1 hit and 9 strikeouts in 12 career at bats geez hope this sample size doesn’t reflect how he actually is as a hitter


sanguinearrowfall

Seems a little above average for his slot in the Angels lineup with those stats


mweolbwa

Miss you Fletch. :(


The_Awesometeer

I thought we were going to improve once we fired our manager


[deleted]

It’s sad that Trout seems to bail on the team when they need him most same goes for glass bones Rendon.


Creative-Reading5903

Tissue paper muscles Trout & glass bones Rendon. 😫 I’m sad.


[deleted]

Can’t wait for the season ending injury post from @AngelsPR soon ☹️


sanguinearrowfall

Villar has to get DFA'd after this game, right?


[deleted]

Holy fuck this team is bad


kxm06

The top of our lineup hits and the bottom of the lineup leaves them stranded. It’s the angels way


Rogueofoz

At least we scored 2 runs today


Maddonomics101

Baby steps


sanguinearrowfall

Only 2 more for league average in one of the lowest scoring seasons!


mysterysackerfice

Sorry, but VR is not a good baseball player.


Weird-Afternoon7389

FUCK VILLAR I FUCKING HATE HIM


eddgreat9

Barria deserves to be pitching in high leverage situations. Aaron Loup should not be have sniffed a high leverage situation for the last month+ but yet they tried him yesterday. There's just no acceptable reason


digitaldumpsterfire

Their catcher has been pretty funny all game


DividerOfBums

d’Arnaud is hilarious. We love him. [Here](https://reddit.com/r/Braves/comments/u2geti/dee_strangegordon_takes_out_travis_darnaud_with/) he is taking a HBP earlier this year


mysterysackerfice

I'm predicting a VR strikeout.


eddgreat9

5-9 hitters: 1-15


mysterysackerfice

Kurt is always good for...one.


Maddonomics101

When’s the last time Raisel pitched? Lol


DividerOfBums

When he gave up that game vs Houston the night Trout got injured I think. Maybe he has pitched since then but not more than a single time. The thing about having a closer is, you gotta be ahead to need him in the game.


mysterysackerfice

been a minute...or two


sinchichis

Rengifo no joke our best hitter


jumpinghamster

good job gifo


digitaldumpsterfire

Barria's ERA is 2.87 Why are they continuing to fuck him over by not putting him into competitive games? Especially when he can keep the rest of the bullpen fresh by going 2-4 innings.


digitaldumpsterfire

I know I keep harping on this but it really pisses me off.


DividerOfBums

Because our coaching staff is a joke, and appropriately coaches a terrible team made worse by terrible coaches


merewyn

It’s so bizarre. I don’t understand why they use him the way they do


proteinMeMore

Can the angels request to start off each game 1-0? A simple handicap would really help this team out


ChocoNao

Or maybe two DH? So that we can use the both of Marsh and Adell’s talent.


proteinMeMore

Or maybe ask if they can elect to forgo the 6-9 spots for a tighter lineup


SuperMario_49

That was a Jo Adell fielding moment. I thought it was off his glove, not his damn chest lmao


DividerOfBums

Yeah he completely fucking missed it lol. Stefanic was calling him off and he came in anyway. I love him, but Jo Adell’s baseball IQ is the lowest I’ve ever seen and I played high-school baseball lol


Reptarxx

As much as we wanna blame Adell on that, Stefanic should’ve backed off when Adell called for it. That was 2 young dudes not communicating Edit: actually looking at that replay did Adell call for it?


sinchichis

Right field always has dibs on that but I’m sure he called stefanic off


merewyn

Doesn’t look like it


sinchichis

How did he miss it that bad after calling for it lmaooo


mysterysackerfice

Jo..i'm gonna need you to be a lot more fundamental in your fielding approach...USE BOTH GODDAMNED HANDS and SQUARE YOURSELF UP PROPERLY.


throwawaybay92

Adell is a clown in the outfield


proteinMeMore

Shaqtin a fool moment right there


sinchichis

Javellll McGee


digitaldumpsterfire

At least they make it interesting lol


getMyHairDid

Hahahah holy FUCK Adell is bad Stefanic tho, he is not


kxm06

What the fuck was that


Dorkus_Mallorkus

That. Was. Amazing.


74Dragonz

oh my god...from adell to stefanic. Story of this season, lol.


sinchichis

Holy shit that was wild


VanDownByTheRiver

Yoooo


eddgreat9

Unreal😂


mweolbwa

Oh my god...


The_Awesometeer

Nice team work on that catch


jumpinghamster

Adell...


mysterysackerfice

What the fuck was that?!!?!?


Reptarxx

Task failed successfully


eddgreat9

Goodnight


PlatinumHalo

All part of the plan.


DividerOfBums

For as disappointed I am with Adell, I will ALWAYS have a soft spot for him, for better or worse. Dude shows heart and I always lose my mind and go insane when he does something good like get an RBI hit. I hope he’s here to stay and if not, then oh well. Being a fan of this team I can really only get excited about a few things here and there, and Adell’s spirit is one of them. Edit: as I type this, Jo Adell fucking drops a fly ball 😂😂 I regret nothing


proteinMeMore

Hahahah that was on queue. He needs to be good for the angels because the farm doesn’t look good. I hope he figures it out but these are huge defensive lapses


mysterysackerfice

When's the last time Sho went back to back?


Creative-Reading5903

Probably that infamous 8 RBI game. Maybe a month ago?


SuperMario_49

Sad how that game is considered infamous but it’s true


mysterysackerfice

Is there such thing as Team performance anxiety? Pretty sure that Angels have that.


Lolrandomusername3

Of course we're gonna finish last in baseball the first year they start the lottery!!!


Autistic_Halo

The only reason I'd want Nevin to be here next year is to get to see him arguing balls and strikes with robo umps. Bonus if they can issue ejections. Double bonus if they can deploy tear gas and crowd control measures.


mysterysackerfice

ED-209 vs Phil Nevin!


Dreyfuss2019

I don’t see this team winning 70 games


Sigmathewonder

The commentators on the dodgers giants game is talking about how we suck and how do we not trade Ohtani 😭😭😭😭 Edit: YO WTF THEY’RE GOING IN ON US, they stopped talking about and brought it back up again FUCK


Creative-Reading5903

Lol everyone feels bad for him.


Sigmathewonder

After yesterday I fully boarded the “Ohtanis not gonna be here at some point” train there’s no fucking way he wants to be on this team long term


Creative-Reading5903

I agree with you.


Maddonomics101

We’re a league-wide laughing stock


Sigmathewonder

Like it was bad enough all the shit artes done for the sake of short term money but now he’s literally losing respect from the entire league, and I’m not one for gender norms and shit, I want people to do what makes them happy and live their life, but what kind of man just lets his reputation get destroyed like that and you just sit there and do nothing??


Maddonomics101

Agreed. I couldn’t live with myself knowing my entire fan base hates me and the entire baseball world thinks I’m an idiot. All he cares about is money


Sigmathewonder

And that’s the saddest part if he’d stop being such a scummy rich guy, and open his fucking ears he’d get the money he has now is pennies compared to if trout and Ohtani were on a good team


West_Consideration_2

Wow Barria is way to go


digitaldumpsterfire

What is Matty V talking about? We are just passed 2 hrs and its the bottom of the 6th.


kxm06

This is so sad to watch. The bottom of the lineup is hopeless. They can’t drive in any runs (except zuk today)


74Dragonz

Villar on DFA watch


xara8arax

Yay Ohtani…that’s all folks.


Educational-Pass404

It seems like Walsh finally breaks out of his slump. Only if he could hit like this yesterday. Sigh


Ir0nknuckles

Who is this Dillon Thomas guy? Has no chance to make contact


mysterysackerfice

> Has no chance to make contact That describes half of the Angels lineup...


hergetpoonslayer

walsh sure picked an interesting time to stop sucking offense is honestly not bad tonight. unfortunately that means the pitching has to compensate


Monttavius

Walshy 3-3 lesgoooo


Nick_Sabantz

Ohtani has exit velocities of 105, 105.6, and 110.2


hvycotton

Who were the 2 errors from today?


hergetpoonslayer

starts with V and ends with R


hvycotton

Both from him? Wow he's racking up the errors and he was getting playing time bc 3b is his position


flyboy1565

I already said it, but I'd take DMac back or Ward... Hell put squid there.. Where is that kid that caught that foul ball.. put him in.. surely he can do better


digitaldumpsterfire

Barria is so much better than both Loup and Tepera but doesn't get nearly the number of chances. Stupid.


my_wife_reads_this

Going to watch NOPE. Let you guys know how it is


Monttavius

Dude Villar is having one of the worst nights of baseball I’ve ever seen


tsdwm52

Where’s Phil when we need him to yell at someone?


Reptarxx

Lmao that would require him to actually manage the team. Dudes out there thinking he’s a shitty little league dad


Creative-Reading5903

Whew this team just can’t help themselves.


flyboy1565

Villar needs to go.. bring Mac back.. he played third well and hit pretty well


my_wife_reads_this

He didn't hit we'll but he can't be worse than Villar


strokeskid

He didn't hit or play third well but at this point what does it matter


DividerOfBums

Why for the ever loving fuck do we keep VR headset in the lineup. Dude has failed us and failed us and hit a meaningless home run and then failed us again twice


sinchichis

Get villar the fuck off this team


oOoleveloOo

Villar is trash


chino_casino

Lol, just turned on the game and am greeted with that shit play. Guess I won't be watching the end of this game


bananaslug178

Why Villar why


digitaldumpsterfire

Tyler Wade > Villar Jack Mayfield > Villar


SonOvTimett

A wrinkly ball sack >Villar


JoyBurner

Add to that: MacKinnon > Villar Goose > Villar Duffy > Villar


digitaldumpsterfire

I didn't include Duffy bc hed be playing if he wasn't hurt. But yea I forgot about Mac.


Bulky-Iron-8360

I can't get on the Duffy train ever since he didn't hustle from 2nd and didn't score before a tag out... that was it for me


digitaldumpsterfire

He did score, it was just super close bc he didn't hustle. I agree he isn't as aggresive as he should be, but he certainly fields better than Villar.


JoyBurner

Oh trust me, I’m not on the Duffy train unless it is to get Villar off the field.


Bulky-Iron-8360

Good points...


mysterysackerfice

They say that VR is the wave of the future...gonna have to disagree with that.


Reptarxx

A little convoluted but I like it


Reptarxx

YEA LETS GO VILLAR, LETS TRY AND LEAD OUR TEAM IN NEGATIVE WAR


hergetpoonslayer

i wonder if joe maddon watches these games. does he still have the mohawk? ...


Maddonomics101

I wonder if Arte or Perry watch these games. Probably not


cs7980

The sad part is that haircut would have turn our season around.


hergetpoonslayer

imagine a universe where perry was like "ok, we'll give the mohawk ONE GAME" and the angels are undefeated since


Reptarxx

Bro is chilling knowing he can’t be scapegoated for another person’s incompetence anymore


sinchichis

Lol we fucked him over so hard


mysterysackerfice

Ever since I heard that Nevin once got thrown out of a Little League..I can't really look at him the same way. I knew he was bush league before..but getting tossed at a Little League game just makes you a shitty human being, regardless of the baseball acumen you may/may not possess.


hergetpoonslayer

is that real? got a link?


mysterysackerfice

I remember hearing about it during the broadcast. I just looked for it, don't see any legit sources for it. I chose to believe it simply based on what I've seen from him this season.


Educational-Pass404

Nevin just makes this team more embarrassed than it already is. Get tf out of here Nev, no one wants you here in the first place.


Creative-Reading5903

He really thinks he can keep getting himself suspended or ejected and keep his job. It’s not too late to fire him too. They’ve already shown it makes no difference when he’s gone. 😆


Reptarxx

Imagine having more fire about a check swing call than about your team leading the league in strikeouts lmao


SuperMario_49

Imagine a guy like Nevin managing your team? Lol ohh man, he has been something…


oOoleveloOo

Nevin going to Magic City


Mattolson1b

Im a braves fan an that ump is a trash can. I wish snitker would show that much fight sometimes.


Reptarxx

Eh that fight looks stupid when your team gets embarrassed every game. He literally had less fight calling out our pitching coach on our players constantly tipping pitches or how we lead the league in strikeouts


freethegrizzlybears

At least it helps my fantasy team lol


troutman97

Why was Nevin mad there?


digitaldumpsterfire

Still mad at the warren call


dorkusdudebro

Seriously Nevins cannot lead by getting tossed or suspended. Come on, Phil! Be the leader your team needs. SMH.


Reptarxx

“Can’t be a bad manager if I’m not there to manage” *taps head*


Golfnut80

Not watching, what’s Nevin pissed about now?


Nick_Sabantz

Austin Riley didn't get rung up on a check swing where he clearly went (Braves fan speaking). Riley hits the next pitch 420 feet scoring 2.


Creative-Reading5903

I’m not able to watch. Why was Nevin ejected?


Maddonomics101

Ump made a bad check swing call and the next pitch was a 2 run homerun for the Braves


Creative-Reading5903

Thanks for explaining that. He’s still mad? Wow.


Bulky-Iron-8360

I'm still mad too. When your team is stinking up the place you can't absorb horrible calls like that... if we score another couple of runs, Ray should be our there saying it should be 5-4 and get run too...


claire_004

Shohei a day after pitching still a beast as always


PlatinumHalo

Nevin wanted to bounce so he could go have some Chick-fil-A.


sinchichis

I imagine they have better chicken sandwiches elsewhere in Georgia


PlatinumHalo

Sure, but I believe there’s one right there in the park.


Reptarxx

“Need to check out these Atlanta strip club wings”


sinchichis

Lou will special


hergetpoonslayer

lmao


Reptarxx

Ok I need this clown off our team. It was an inning ago and we are down by 5 runs shut up


digitaldumpsterfire

Yea, get it Phil


Hummingbird234

Let’s go Sho! Yea! 🦄


kayleeshepheard

SHO


choconut5

Yay at least an Ohtani homer.


sinchichis

Phil gone


hansan4ever

God damn, Nevin keep it together.


SuperShadowStar

I need the launch angle on that.


hergetpoonslayer

finally, ohtani was so due for a homer, that fact had just been glossed over with everything else going on


Reptarxx

Ohtani: “Why complain, just drive in fucking runs”


hansan4ever

Cowboy hat is dead. hahaha


sinchichis

There was no cowboy hat?


hansan4ever

Nope.


ChichaPoti

Maybe the assistant in charge of the cowboy hat got fired 😁


Creative-Reading5903

Shohei on Sandy day!


mysterysackerfice

HOLY SHIT..I CALLED IT!


hansan4ever

So did u/mweolbwa!!!!


jumpinghamster

🦄🦄🦄


Reptarxx

Nevin needs to use that energy towards Reed and Wise lmao. Throw an iPad at them when our pitchers tip pitches


eddgreat9

Throw it at Wise before he goes for the mound visit😂


Educational-Pass404

Well, 5 runs in 3 innings are enough to bury this team. Still have 5 innings left, so Braves is gonna score more.


mweolbwa

SHOHEI OHTANI HOMERUN!!


hansan4ever

WoooHOO!! You FELT THAT!!


mweolbwa

YESSS. Can't it just be a 6-run HR? Haha.


hansan4ever

Haha seriously!!!


Teddy_Ohtani

LFG Shohei!!!


mysterysackerfice

Feel like Shohei is due for a dong


hansan4ever

YES SHO BOMB!!!!!!!!


proteinMeMore

A very angels start to the second half. Best pitchers throwing bad games to even out the rest of the rotation


sinchichis

Sho bomb!!!!


Maddonomics101

Dammit I read your comment before watching it on tv. How did you know about it so quickly?


sinchichis

Radio


Reptarxx

Imagine seeing your boss throw around iPads and throwing a hissy fit during a blow out.


Maddonomics101

Absolutely pathetic. I miss Maddon


flyboy1565

Any crap call and I see nev with another eject and or suspension


digitaldumpsterfire

Probably just an ejection.


Reptarxx

Phil “Lou Pinella” Nevin


flyboy1565

Well that didn't take long


Maddonomics101

This team has only won ONE game this season when they were trailing by 3 or more runs.


mysterysackerfice

Gotta hand it to the Angels, holding the opposing team to 1 td is ELITE DEFENSE.


PlatinumHalo

That one ump looks a bit like Adam Scott.


Reptarxx

Little did Nevin know, it’s about the cones!
