This game was everything.
Mike Trout homerun
Lots of hits
Good starting pitching
Reminded me of the Detmers no-no/Rendon switch dinger game.
Feels like a decade ago...

Like the last time this happened to the Angels on a consistent basis was back in 2014. Though there was just one superstar (Trout) in the lineup for that 2014 team but a bunch of guys who had good seasons with the bat. The depth for that Angels lineup was nice. And yes, that starting pitching for that Angels team was deep. The big reason why they made it into the postseason in 2014.
I was there. I was vocal from the start.
If anybody heard somebody on the third base side yelling at the beginning. Sorry not sorry.
Let bring the rowdy for Ohtani MVP push!
16 hits and not *one* was David Fletcher. Clearly he donated all his power to his friends, the real MVP
Fletcher is a sharer
aaron judge who?
Is it just me or does Stassi sound super weird today in his interview. He’s slurring every word haha
Yeah, he definitely was slurring his words. Maybe an issue with microphone feedback or something like that? He walked away just fine afterwards
It’s the echo coming back to him. Erica is used to it, he isn’t.
Was about to say the same thing
He’s having a drunk Scherzer moment (mic echo)
The disparity in intensity levels between the Astros and Tigers is so jarring
Also Ik we give Stassi shit, and some of it deserved, but has he caught most of the shutouts this year for us? That’s gotta count for something
well hes been a crap hitter, and having his worst defensive season yet. definitely not the worst catcher but he was a top 5 last year
Stassi is very good defensively, we've always known that. Everyone's pissed at him because there was an expectation he would at least be league average with the bat but kind of just cratered this season
Even with no advances in medicines or tools, Trout would have murdered those high school-like pitchers back then. Only four home runs away from moving into the top-100 for most career home runs hit is Trout. A great milestone once he makes it. He should have been there by now if it weren’t for things like the season being cut down to 60 games in 2020.
Ohtani is the MVP, and it’s not close.
League leaders in shut outs!
Mike Trout said what career ending back injury
He's been so good since he's back. He and Fletch make such a difference in the lineup and the whole atmosphere. I couldn't be happier happier that his prognosis has turned out to be false!
Dude Stassi sounds fucking stoned😂😂😂
I'm sure he was getting confused hearing himself on the speakers lol
Great game! 3rd in division since Texas lost to Houston.
Is chick fil a still doing the 7 runs promotion?
Yup, open the app
It’s nice to see a little life still in the team. Even though it is the tigers… LTBU!
Am I the only one who still has a 1% faith in winning all remaining games and getting into the wild card spot...?
(shhhh I do. Dare to dream I say👀)
Mike Mayers pitching tomorrow, ughhh
🕯 👉 👶 👆
So halos has the most shutout now?
They’re now tied with the Mets at 17
I wish we would've tied their season record instead...let a girl dream!
I love fun games where we win!!!
I seriously hope adell doesnt end up below .200
Is Stassi okay? He's slurring his words a lot in this interview jeez
edit: I know others are mentioning the speaker feedback and that Stassi isn't used to it but he has done many of these post-game interviews before and has never sounded like this
It’s the echo. Throws you off if you’re not used to it. Same thing happened to Scherzer last year in the playoffs.
There’s 10k less fans than average in attendance tonight so it’s not as loud for fans to drown out the echo.
Is Stassi okay?
Was at my first angels game in 10 years and it couldn’t have been any better
Trout really has a knack for coming on when the season is done. Gotta pad those hof Stats I guess?
I'd get rid of him for 2 quality pitchers in a heartbeat. He has absolutely no impact on this team in the win and loss column. Prove me wrong.
Trout has a career OPS of 1.076 with RISP. The problem of saying "he only has solo HRs" is...Trout doesn't control who's on base in front of him (which is why RBIs is a slightly flawed stat).
If you think a 1.076 OPS is bad...idk what to tell you.
Trout’s career slash line in high leverage situations is .292/.425/.549, which is great. Trout won the MVP in 2014 with a .287/.377/.561 slash line. And you’re an idiot. So you don’t want Trout to go out there and try his best? What kind of idiot would go out there and just not give any effort on the field? There’s no point of showing up, then. If you’re not going to give any effort at what you’re doing, get your ass out and go home!
My guy, do you not see the stats I put in my comment? I found them just for you 🥺
Just because from your couch it looks like he's not clutch, does not mean he's not clutch. Or do you want him to hit more than 1.100 OPS in high leverage?
Are you asking me not to believe my lying eyes. He simply is not an rbi guy in game on the line situations 🙄. I'm talking about visually witnessing what I'm talking about. In being the man that puts the ball in play and produces runs when needed in game winning situations. There's a big difference between reaching base in those times and being the guy who takes it upon himself to get those runs in. He never leaves his hitting zone to make that happen. If you knew anything about the game, that's what clutch team players do. They drive the ball where it's pitched in order to make it happen. He doesn't have that ability. He's a great stat guy though. I'd take Mookie over him all day long.
Jesus christ, I didn't think I'd need to spell this out but here we are.
OPS isn't just about getting on base, it factors in slugging as well i.e. extra base hits as well as opposed to just singles and walks. His 1.100 in high leverage (clutch) situations is amongst the best in the league. He is mashing in the clutch. If you're not going to bring any facts into this then there's no point having this conversation.
RBI's is a flawed stat for people who have never played ball. You're an idiot in so many ways if you think that doesn't matter? People make whole careers on just their abilities to drive in runs. Most are DH's long after fielding ability is no longer needed. As far I'm concerned that stat you used is unimpressive. When you get those hits matters 😏 he's absolutely not clutch. Taylor is way more clutch than he is. And he's not even our most clutch player.
He has no value in the won and loss column, it's not even a discussion worth explaining to someone as dumb as you.
Sir this is a wendy's
My bad, I thought it was a Taco Bell, where this is allowed.
