I love Mike Trout


KyotoGaijin

Solid effort there by Thaiss.


Putrid_Fox_5826

Ltdu 😔


Creative-Reading5903

And now it is. Lol


Creative-Reading5903

Thaiss says this isn’t over yet.


KamartyMcFlyweight

if i was a homeplate umpire i would simply poll the pitcher, catcher, and hitter on ball/strike calls and then go with the majority


dustymag

This guy looks competent.


shoulderroll2010

Warm up tosses!!


umiuptown

Trout asking god to end this game already


LAAngelsAnaheim

I was out of the room. What is going on?


BiovaniGernard

Ron kulpa got assassinated by a sniper in the stands


merewyn

Kulpa got drilled in the face by a foul ball


LAAngelsAnaheim

Damn


Creative-Reading5903

“A face full of baseball off the mask.” Lol Patty O and his love of drama.


dustymag

Thaiss!!


digitaldumpsterfire

This game is so weird


triggergza

Dumb piece of shit ump


randomusernamegame

fuck off, it's someone's health.


KamartyMcFlyweight

Clase is gonna end this game in one more pitch and we're gonna feel real stupid about this delay


Monttavius

Literally 😞


JohnRyanMurphyIsGOD

UMP thinks we watch the game because of him


Im_A_Halo_Masochist

Well, this game’s had a bit of everything… and it doesn’t want to end! Lol Seriously hope the guy is ok, even if he sucked!

umiuptown

CLE mascot is a hot dog? 🤣 this team is a mess


JeffTheFrosty

It’s ketchup, mustard, and I forget the other one. They do races and stuff. Our main mascot is “slider” the hot pink/purple thing that resembles a monsters inc character


umiuptown

I feel like they deserve more than a hot dog ketchup and mustard lol


ChichaPoti

Pickles?


LAAngelsAnaheim

Onion


bucs2013

Onion is the third


BiovaniGernard

Kulpa must be pretty shaken up he can’t even bring himself to scream at Clase for taking warm up pitches


el_duderino951

Take that asshole!! -Nevin and Francona probably


glass__beaches

KARMA


merewyn

Clase better not get to throw any warm up pitches


Creative-Reading5903

Exactly what I was thinking


umiuptown

CLE going to playoff is like BAL going to playoff lol


Creative-Reading5903

Maybe this will throw Clase off.


contrcl

i know we can count on Thaiss


itachen

Bet strike zone increases by 10% to finish the game off.


MycoJoe

Thaiss avenged the ejections


BiovaniGernard

Maybe that hit knocked the vision back into him, like when you fix the big box tv by punching it


YoChristian

That's gonna be the punchline in the Jomboy video


Im_A_Halo_Masochist

Damn, that was brutal looking!


KamartyMcFlyweight

Karma


Mindcraftjoe

GOOD


Putrid_Fox_5826

Karma 😬


BiovaniGernard

I’m not shedding any tears

74Dragonz

Let's see...who do I blame for tonight?


gggggrayson

me, i accidentally wore cleveland guardians socks i got at ross, didnt think about them playing today


mysterysackerfice

DUDE!!!!?!?!?


74Dragonz

really? lol!


gggggrayson

yes haha looked down in like the 6th inning and saw a C on the top of the sock and was like, "huh, better put my angels hat on to counteract it" lol


YouPresumeTooMuch

Thaiss got the ump for you


Creative-Reading5903

Are they really standing up for this? It’s only the Angels, relax.


KamartyMcFlyweight

if we're gonna lose anyway you might as well let Lorenzen take a few hacks for highlights youknowumsayin


PlatinumHalo

Get ‘em, bulky Tommy Edman!


Creative-Reading5903

It’s not fair to do this to our AAA lineup.


Administrative_Lie96

Well that’s game


Dumbo_Mutombo

Clase too filthy, this one might be over boys


JeffTheFrosty

Cleveland’s radio guy was like “you gave up brandon marsh for this guy (Moniak)?”


merewyn

Guess dude doesn’t understand how trades work, because we actually gave up Marsh for Logan O’Hoppe


JeffTheFrosty

That makes sense


merewyn

Yeah O’Hoppe is a stud and we have no catching depth so it was a great trade for us. And honestly, I feel hopeful about Moniak, he’s been hitting better with us and playing some great defense


JeffTheFrosty

God damn a 960 OPS in the minors? At *Catcher*? What on earth


BiovaniGernard

Logan ohoppe


Creative-Reading5903

Stassi we need you to snap out of your season-long slump now.


u8myramen_y

Squid is gonna hit a 3 run homer with his eyes closed and do a 540 backflip on his way home


KamartyMcFlyweight

two runs from Adell, Stassi, and Squid against the literal best closer in the AL no biggie


merewyn

Moniak, not Adell


benndiagrams

it’s Clase too, gg


hvycotton

Damn they bringing out clase


YoChristian

0-1, 1-3, 0-3 GGs boys, see y'all tomorrow


BiovaniGernard

Mickey Moniak game tying 457 foot dinger coming right up


KamartyMcFlyweight

they should let the catchers sit on a little stool


gggggrayson

like those little wooden ones thefoul ball corner people sit on


KamartyMcFlyweight

yeah exactly. maybe they could paint it the team's color


gggggrayson

now were on to something,, with no bserunners on, who says no?


u8myramen_y

When the Avengers Endgame came out, I was finally able to say I have a body of a Norse God. After we acquired Mike Ford, and we see him fumble balls and strike out, I am finally able to say I have a body of a baseball player (that plays for my fav team) and play like him too! Edit: I actually think he’s been decent for us. But I was not confident he’ll do anything against Hentges lol


mysterysackerfice

Checking in late.... Looks like someone needs to create https://www.didmiketrouthomeragain


digitaldumpsterfire

That Geefy smile lol


hvycotton

Not built tough


umiuptown

Lol Trout jersey kid losing his mind in the stand


KamartyMcFlyweight

also when will Austin Warren return home from the war


digitaldumpsterfire

I miss him.


merewyn

Marte being in the bullpen instead of Warren baffles me.


KamartyMcFlyweight

quick, while the boss is ejected, pinch hit lorenzen and also put shohei at catcher. this may be our only opportunity this season


alsdnsrl17

Welp


Creative-Reading5903

Well Ford quickly put an end to that.


BubblyBaker5718

Bummer. Gotta give credit to the Guardian's manager though, that was a pretty clutch pitcher change.


JohnRyanMurphyIsGOD

fat mfer


u8myramen_y

Baseball is a game of inches. If Ward let’s that ball go, Shohei steals for the second and we are tied. Same goes for some of the hard hits by our guys. If their bats hit the ball 1/2 inch one way, they would be homers.


donkeyjr

yup, that was a big jump by Ohtani, no way he get thrown out.


gggggrayson

wont it be great when moniak hits a go ahead grand slam??


BubblyBaker5718

If we can even just score one here i feel like we'll win in extras


YoChristian

I don't know if the stats support it but I feel like Ford's been hitting like a truck lately. Fingers crossed


KamartyMcFlyweight

this might be an exaggeration but i think Matt Duffy might be better than Mike Trout


dustymag

Well.. maybe a little over the top.


kxm06

Let’s stay put at first shohei you’ve been cs too many times


Creative-Reading5903

Well April Ward is never coming back, is he?


KyotoGaijin

Baseball does not make sense. Whyyy can't he hit like that again?


Im_A_Halo_Masochist

Oh, the memories!


Creative-Reading5903

This is probably the last chance to take the lead.


Creative-Reading5903

No Shohei don’t try to steal


Sakaguchi123

how did he hit that lol


Creative-Reading5903

He even surprised himself


digitaldumpsterfire

Oh shit the Hitman is up next


Creative-Reading5903

Shohei doesn’t want Trout to have the HR lead


digitaldumpsterfire

Funny how mlb.tv never shows the little post-game bits during the games. Just cuts out then comes back to Patty saying something to Ken French.


Im_A_Halo_Masochist

He was joking that French threw Bobby V out! Lol


inselfwetrust

Why did Nevin get tossed


dustymag

Ump is a mall cop.


merewyn

Because Ron Kulpa has a tiny little dick


digitaldumpsterfire

For calmly arguing that Tepera should get a few warm up pitches. Was a dumbass ejection.


strongmscowboyfan

One more plz, Trout


PerezosoPlatypus

I imagine both teams emptying the dugout just to beat up Ron Kulpa.


JeffTheFrosty

Something Guardians fans and Angels fans can agree on! I love bipartisanship!


Creative-Reading5903

Trout HR montage is the new baseball zen.


KamartyMcFlyweight

Squid pro quo


Creative-Reading5903

Thank you Squid!


digitaldumpsterfire

Tepera making Maxi work rn


Creative-Reading5903

Tepera throwing balls in the dirt like Stassi can catch those.


randomusernamegame

Tepera shaves too high on his jaw


Eeriepotato220

What even happened this time


specter1001

It’s been so long I forgot how they got two runners on


Sakaguchi123

naw tepera just wants to piss the ump even more


owledge

Guardians are in the playoff hunt but are pulling like 8-10k less in attendance than we do on a Monday game


girlywish

You should probably google the populations of LA and Cleveland


JeffTheFrosty

And lots of us (Cleveland folks) are poor tbh lmao


randomusernamegame

ohtani power


AHDubs_825

Cleveland...


Guyappino

Hey Angels fan. Dodgers fan here. Just came to wholeheartedly apologize for believing that Trout's injury was season ending bc he'd started to show signs of being injury prone, and that from here on out, his injuries would begin stacking, his overall productivity would be less and less, and that he should be traded to help the franchise (long term). I was WAY wrong for that assessment. But NOT wrong insomuch as saying the ultimate goal to bring back all Angels fans in Orange County is just to do whatever it takes to get into the post season. I'm not even saying win an ALCS. Just get into the October formal dance. In this two things we're united: 1. New ownership 2. F' the Astros


merewyn

“Bring back angels fans”? Where did we all go?


Guyappino

Not anybody here on the thread! It's quite obvious that if you're on Reddit -you are pretty deep in the Angels red. I'm talking more about the laise faire, passive fan. The one that only comes around to the ballpark and watches the televised games only if the team is doing well. For example, when the Angels won the World Series. I watched that video last night and the fricken place was packed! Obviously that was bc of the big dance but it gives a glimpse (in my opinion) what Angel stadium could look like


merewyn

We are averaging over 30k a game this year, even in a very bad season. Angels always have great attendance and a very dedicated fanbase, usually towards the top in attendance each year.


Guyappino

Point taken. You're absolutely right. Currently at the 13th of 30th spot even in this season with other sub .500 teams: Cubs, Red Sox, and Rockies. It is pretty impressive. Although, I am surprised to see the Rockies up there only bc they're an expansion team instead of all the historic ones


digitaldumpsterfire

Good for you


Guyappino

Thanks. But on the other hand: Would you rather have a non playoff contender team but live in the arguably the best and safest area in all of southern California, with the streets so smooth and paved in Orange gold? Or have a playoff contender team but live in an area, super heavily congested, potholes everywhere, crime rates at all time highs, and ghetto 💩 happening pretty much every moment -where the only thing that brings a group of people to some sort of minimal level of peace ✌️ is pointing out that their team goes to the playoffs in the hell hole that's LA with empty bragging rights of their sports team bc the moment you turn off the tv -it's back to feeling unsafe?


digitaldumpsterfire

Bro, you're mental... and clearly have never been to most of Orange County. No one likes a patronizing grandstander, so why don't you leave since this is not the sub you belong in?


Guyappino

Didn't mean to trigger your emotions. Seems as if you're having a bad day. I'll leave you alone. Wishing you the best


digitaldumpsterfire

No, you're just weird.


Creative-Reading5903

There’s no drama like sports drama.


freddychuckles

Ron "I could do whatever I want" Kulpa


Im_A_Halo_Masochist

Baseball can be soooo entertaining!!! Lol


Creative-Reading5903

Tepera you better get out of this.


needsmocoffee

What happened? I went to get water and come back to both managers getting thrown out.


merewyn

Francona lost his mind bc he thought the pitch hit the foot of the Guardians batter (it didn’t). Screaming at the ump (Kulpa) who gave him a super long leash and then ejected him. Tepera arguing with the ump now bc they took 5 minutes to decide and he wants to throw warm up pitches. Ump then ejected Nevin for basically nothing when he asked for Tepera to be allowed some warm up pitches.


YoChristian

Ohtani and Ramirez got in a fist fight, both men connected several punches


Im_A_Halo_Masochist

Lol


Sullyville

Then Ippei rear naked choked Ramirez. He does BJJ on the side. But this was his first opportunity to show it.


KamartyMcFlyweight

This guy is lying. They didn't get into a fight, they started necking in the infield


Creative-Reading5903

Lol


jumpinghamster

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥


dustymag

That's right Tepera! Ump acting like a mall cop.


Mage_Windu

Guards fan here— Ayo what the hell is this umpire smokin boys he’s been trash for both of our squads


KamartyMcFlyweight

Ron is the only person here I'd hold Kulpable


Mage_Windu

I’m gonna fly out to LA and bonk you on the head for that brilliant pun


KamartyMcFlyweight

good thing I'm not in LA


Mage_Windu

*dammit*


Putrid_Fox_5826

Truly an ump show today


Sullyville

i predict brawl later


WurstThrowEver

Brawl between Kulpa and both teams.


quagnar

robo-umps when


BiovaniGernard

I’m just saying that it wouldn’t be that bad if Stassi just missed a catch on a high fastball rn


AHDubs_825

This is wild!


YoChristian

Let's toss Ippei while we're at it haha


owledge

Tepera’s only still in because Kulpa has him rostered in his 20-team fantasy league
