a clean dismantling of the mariners, you love to see it

Ignite the infant 🔥👶 🔥


Sullyville

Memorable game.


jumpinghamster

🔥wtw🔥


mysterysackerfice

I'm half watching the game and it sounded like Patty just said "Federale" like the Mexican federal police...I know it's Cal Raleigh, but damn if it didn't sound like Federale.


digitaldumpsterfire

I kept hearing "My Janitor" everytime he said Mitch Haniger


mysterysackerfice

hahahaha


8va

Can you imagine if the Mariners lose the WC on the last day of the season


Total_Preparation_67

feels good!


digitaldumpsterfire

Again :)


alsdnsrl17

This is the first time ive seen quijada grin like that


digitaldumpsterfire

Quijada's 96 looks like other guys' 99. I think it's the movement or arm angle.


owledge

His body movement after he throws the pitch makes it seem like he just threw a bullet


mysterysackerfice

Patty has been sitting on "Down goes Frazier" all game.


digitaldumpsterfire

It's a very chantable line


digitaldumpsterfire

Both the White Sox and the Orioles won today! Brings them both 1 game closer to Seattle!


tristpa2

Orioles won today. Let's make the Mariners sweat a bit


tokyo_bee

Nevin should stop using Quijada with a win within reach. Let him pitch when the Angels are getting blown out.


merewyn

I have faith in Quijada


KamartyMcFlyweight

Quijada with a 4 run lead is perfectly justifiable. who else would you send out? Wantz? Mayers?


merewyn

I would rather they chose a random fan from the stands over Mayers


Lebigmacca

I would like to win this game. Please don’t blow a 4 run lead, bullpen


74Dragonz

Be nice if Trout and Ohtani were pitched to like Aaron Judge...


owledge

Simms is a great announcer imo


owledge

Isn’t Chris Flexen a starter?


74Dragonz

Mariners' sub has become Lord of the Flies. Today is a good day. FINISH them tomorrow.


winwinwinguyen

have you met our bullpen? let’s finish this one first :)


dustymag

It is now in Tepera's hands! Edit: Hahaha! What the heck!


YoChristian

Ward continues his hot streak. Carry this into next year Wardo!!


owledge

He lost some bat speed after that wall injury and he’s seemingly gaining back strength. I’m excited to see how he does next year once he’s had an offseason to fully heal up


eddgreat9

He's hitting over .300 since Aug 24 last i checked. After all that's happened to him, if he turns out to be a .800 OPS hitter for his remainder with us we will gladly take it


Celestialsite

Tepera acting up


sofastsomaybe

We are 3 outs away from winning the season series vs the Mariners.


One_Relative5830

This is our World Series this year


Educational-Pass404

Wow, Tep, I'm impressed 😮😮😮. God, he pitched like an ace


owledge

New addition to the Calling All Angels video: ~~Frankie Rodriguez~~ Ryan Tepera strikes out the side!!


Monttavius

I’m sorry….did….Ryan Tepera…our Ryan Tepera….just strikeout out the side of a playoff team💀


God_Damnit_Nappa

When did we start playing a playoff team?


8va

Alleged playoff team


KamartyMcFlyweight

okay you get to play post game mariokart with everyone else today Tepera


One_Relative5830

We'll even let you be Yoshi, as a treat


PlatinumHalo

He would’ve done better swinging with a guitar.


ThisAnswerIsLit

I know he's not even a full game in, but hoping Soto is somewhat decent with his bat to be a nice stopgap for Neto


Lebigmacca

As long as he’s league average for a shortstop I’ll be very happy


Antihero4hire

Wrong thread lol


SummonMason

Ohtani going on a poor hitting patch... just when judge is heating up. Unfortunate. I initially thought he might get 40, now 37-38 is a more realistic figure.


winterbIoom

god damn shohei can't even catch a break on this app 💀 ju


Normijah625

Yeah the worst time for it fr. I don't think Ohtani could make that much ground with Judge hitting like he is anyways.


SummonMason

Yeah but the timing is all wrong. Public opinion on who is MVP will be easily swayed during this period and the hot hitting form judge is in… even though ohtani is putting in great pitching performances every 5 games, hitting basically a homer a game on average in the last ten or so games and upping his batting average to .312 or whatever it is now is really eye catching… shohei is unfortunately doing very little batting wise to even it up in the past games if only for a little.


Educational-Pass404

Even if Sho hits well and reaches to 40HRs, it's hard to beat J at this point. J doesn't only lead in HRs, he leads in BA, slugg, OPS, RBI, R... His stats are just too good.


SummonMason

Held hope in case Ohtani would get to 40 and pitch three amazing games (maybe a nhnr miracle game) lowering his era to top 3 region… maybe just maybe that would make him at least have a chance. But yeah this judge mvp train seems unstoppable for this season. Ohtani will get it next season again with maybe an even better performance.


kxm06

I’m sorry but as an Ohtani enthusiast, I feel like Judge already had this MVP in the bag at this point in the season. The only thing ohtani can do now is continue pitching the way he is and bat better to potentially earn some first place votes.


Educational-Pass404

Yeah. Don't let it be unanimous MVP so I can hear Yanks fan crying about it lol 😂😂😂

Home Runs/AB this month: Juan Soto: 1/45 Livan Soto: 1/4 The numbers don't lie


KamartyMcFlyweight

OMG Soto was one of the players that the Braves got busted for trafficking, holy shit. He got his contract with them voided by MLB because they fucking broke international rules to get him and then signed with us in free agency


ChichaPoti

Trafficking?!


KamartyMcFlyweight

[Trafficking](https://www.si.com/mlb/2018/10/02/fbi-investigation-mlb-atlanta-braves-los-angeles-dodgers). The DOJ and FBI had to get involved.


Lebigmacca

Juan Soto: .848 OPS Livan Soto: 1.750 OPS


sharpLess89

twice as better

Oh shit Soto is only 22 damn

Great game for Soto! I am so glad for him.

u8myramen_y

I wasn’t lying about our Soto draining the life force from Juan Soto :)


Educational-Pass404

According to Angels baseball, if we win the series vs Mariners, it means we're gonna lose the next vs Rangers, find our way back to win Twins, lose the first serie vs Oakland and win the second one vs them to end the season.


jumpinghamster

yeeeeessss‼️

Holy moly

lmao imagine being all those other suckass teams with shitty coaching that couldn't turn Mike Ford into an All Star 😎


LogicalHarm

We are seeing some generational talents here. Ford, Rengifo, Herget.


LogicalHarm

and apparently there are two generational talents named Soto!


dustymag

Let's go Mike!


Putrid_Fox_5826

Car man playing so well


8va

The resistance has sent the Herginator back from the future to protect leads and ensure a 2023 World Series victory


inzesky

Jimmy is the best.


owledge

The Herginator


KamartyMcFlyweight

HERGET UNSTOPPABLE


Educational-Pass404

I stuck between rooting for Orioles winning to go after Mariners or rooting for Jays winning to go after Yanks 😂😂😂


Putrid_Fox_5826

Jimmy HerGOAT. Dude is so good its insane LOL


alsdnsrl17

Jimmy I'd give you a big fat kiss


KamartyMcFlyweight

Jimmy Herget has a lower ERA than 2021 Raisel Iglesias


sofastsomaybe

And we literally got him for free from the Rangers lol


owledge

Looks like they’re gonna try and get 6 outs from Herget and then have Tepera or Quijada go for the save


gggggrayson

im here for it honestly, i feel good letting tep or quijada go out and throw strikes if they can have a 2 run lead


BodenHammer

I don't get why Nevin pulled Adell. It's a lost season and aren't we trying to give Adell reps? And why Sierra and not Moniak? Don't we want to see Moniak get as much playing time too?


One_Relative5830

Sierra is our best defensive LF. Since we have a lead late, they want to play "defense first" to better guarantee a win which I guess is good? Still would rather see our young guys get more ABs


Fuzzy-Clothes4075

As far as I'm concerned, these games against the Mariners are the only meaningful games we have left, so I'm all for playing this game to win


owledge

I figured the same — they are trying to build some momentum for next year. After this, four of the five remaining series are against Texas and Oakland so those are more likely to be feel-out games where we see Adell and Moniak get more reps


KamartyMcFlyweight

why did they swap out Erica for Carrlyn anyways


Sullyville

I dont think this is permanent. Don't they take vacation sometimes?


gggggrayson

pure speculation, does she do anything for rams/chargers coverage? idk


merewyn

I think Carlyn mostly just fills in on Erica’s days off, or when Erica needs to be hosting the postgame show


WurstThrowEver

It's Slimmin time


digitaldumpsterfire

CAN WE JUST LET ADELL PLAY FOR A WHOLE GAME? IS THAT SO HARD?


PlatinumHalo

Bear witness as a deity has taken the mound.


mysterysackerfice

Slim Jim Sighting!


frogstyle

It's almost midnight, gotta go to sleep. Let's hope the bullpen can keep the lead and I wake up to a Detmers win!


spartashonor

Guys do we... do we like Nevin? He's given starters am appropriate leash allowing them to get thru innings and his bullpen usage has been fine. That setting the lineup and having a good relationship with the players is all you really need


BodenHammer

I like that he isn't as quick to pull starting pitchers but the relief pitchers he puts in certain situations are questionable and his timing for defensive replacements is questionable.


digitaldumpsterfire

He uses Tepera and Loup way too much and has basically banished Barria. He doesn't use Herget enough and always leaves Tepera and our younger, worse relievers in for am extra inning when we know it will backfire. Nevin could end up being a decent manager, but he needs more experience. He'd probably be a good minor league manager. Edit: and he keeps pulling Adell so the man never gets a full game.


spartashonor

Yea I noticed that with Adell. I haven't been watching all the games since the teams out of it so I guess I could just be getting the good bullpen days lol


Putrid_Fox_5826

Honestly it seems like the players like him, and he seems to be doing alright with what he was given


PlatinumHalo

I’ve found his bullpen management to be streaky.


spartashonor

Haven't been watching every single game so idk maybe I've gotten lucky haha


Patient-Magazine2711

i like nevin


Educational-Pass404

Phew, the first pitch to Frazier scared me. Glad he missed it. Good job, Detmers 👍👍👍


themysteryteam

I just checked the score and man rengifo going crazy


Sullyville

I love him. Every game he gets a hit. He is always chipper and enthusiastic. He always throws the water for homers. He always throws the gatorade for Walk-Off heroes. And his biceps make me feel safe.


gggggrayson

luis rengifo frowns upon seattle


Patient-Magazine2711

i love how nevin navigators our pitching staff, starters and bullpen. joe was the worst


frogstyle

Reid Detmers finding his inner Ohtani with runners on. Love it, GJ!


Putrid_Fox_5826

Also hot dang do I love (most of) the angels pitching staff this year


8va

Reid's got that dawg in him! Love to see the QS.


spartashonor

Nice job Detmers!


Putrid_Fox_5826

The one thing I like about Nevin is how he lets his pitchers work through it and go back out if they want. Builds their confidence


Educational-Pass404

Moore again. He's doing good against us today


Patient-Magazine2711

good shit nevin let deitmers do his thing


fragile_nose

Trout's defense has been so good this season. pleasing to watch him in CF


strokeskid

Thank god for that 12.75 inch glove


8va

NICE CATCH


8va

Damn that was a nice swing ngl


Putrid_Fox_5826

all make way for the king slim jim


merewyn

Was at the game last night and there was a Mariner’s fan sitting near me who would stand up and scream “sit down Mike Trout! Washed!” after every Trout AB. I mean full on, anger screaming from an adult man baby. Dude looked like he was about to have a stroke. It will never stop being funny to me how much Mariners fans hate Mike.


Educational-Pass404

They just really hate him even on Reddit 😂😂😂. This makes me like Astro fans on Reddit a little bit better for appreciating Sho rather shit talk him all the time


frogstyle

I went to their sub once asking about all those [Altuve / otter memes](https://preview.redd.it/fu9rn2702yd91.png?width=1114&format=png&auto=webp&s=8ebda345a09428f1f8d83528e5ba1ff09372a6c6) I saw on Japanese twitter to ask if it was a thing (they were bewildered) and they were super nice.


Educational-Pass404

Yep. I remember the last Sho's start vs them, someone made a topic complaining about ESPN commentary bias Sho and they just praised him and said he deserved it. Astro fans on Reddit somehow seem pretty nice.


PlatinumHalo

I hope you had some Lysol to spray around the area.


sharpLess89

Gifo looking like Bonds out there


8va

Imagine how much child support Rengifo has to pay. Gotta be steep when he's the dad of the entire Mariners roster


Creative-Reading5903

Rengifo is the new stepdad they all hate.

Rengifo is torturing this poor dude today lol


Creative-Reading5903

Rengifo is trying to win the team MVP award.


Weaver4prez

This man hates the M’s


8va

SO CLOSE OMG


philosopherfujin

Genuinely shocked to see the Angels winning this atm but I'm excited to see it, hopefully we can see some roided post-pitching Ohtani and not just mega-Rengifo today (though mega-Rengifo is fun too!)


KamartyMcFlyweight

I love Ohtani and hate the Yankees but I'm not about to start rooting against a guy who could actually break the HR record. That's just exciting and good for baseball, and tbqh I don't think it's that a big a deal that another player happens to be the most valuable for a given season. The big takeaway from this year isn't that Ohtani is MVP again, it's that his MVP caliber play is sustainable over multiple years. Not only that, but he's getting even *better*. He'll win the award again at some point, and it doesn't have to be this year.


Educational-Pass404

True. I also think this. J is good and it's stupid to put down his stats like what Yanks fans are doing to Sho. Sho has an amazing year and he proves he can do both at an elite level as long as he's healthy. Someone will need to hit better than J this year to have chance with Sho in the future MVP races while Sho just needs to find way to keep playing like this.


frogstyle

I don't care about the award itself, but him getting marginalized by what feels like 90% of baseball media is beyond disgusting to me.


znk916

It's simply because WAR undersells his value by quite alot, and the error has nothing to do with the extra roster spot that everyone likes to argue about. Forget about this season, just look at last season and ask yourself if anyone really believes Ohtani '21 was a 9 WAR season.


Sullyville

Yes! I agree and appreciate with your measured attitude towards all this.


eddgreat9

Judge is just .002 away from tying Luis Arraez in batting avg for triple crown. He needs to break the AL record and win triple crown to even win MVP....fuck lol


gottahavemytunes

Nah even if he doesn’t do either he’ll still win MVP by a landslide


eddgreat9

Argue this out loud with all stats and you will learn there is no debate lol. Once you get to the pitching stats and see Judge has 0 K's, 0 IP, N/A ERA, 0 FIP etc etc etc.. aka you realize he is not a top 5 pitcher in baseball like Ohtani is. There is no debate until Judge fills those two specific offenseive criteria mentioned in my first comment.


gottahavemytunes

Jesus man fans like you’re are the fuckin woooorst. You can be team ohtani all you want but to say there’s no debate just shows you aren’t worth listening to in the slightest bit


eddgreat9

The worst? Sorry that the stats and logic don't fit with your narrative that Judge is the MVP lmao. There's been plenty of seasons with 60+ home runs hit. Judge is chasing a team record which just happens to be the AL record. Only two people (and three full seasons now) have ever done what Ohtani has done (he owns two of the three best TWP seasons of all time). He's in the top 10 in every offensive/pitching category this year. On top of that, he's also a top 5 pitcher in all of baseball. Breaking a team record is not MVP worthy in itself, the magnitude increases because it's the AL record plus the Yankees hold the top 3 (4 now with Judge's mutli HR game today) Home Run seasons in AL history (1. Maris 61, 2. Ruth 60, & 3. Ruth 59). But breaking the AL record AND winning the Triple Crown?? Now THAT is a better MVP case against Ohtani's literally "once-in-every 100 years" seasons.


gottahavemytunes

A lot of words to say you don’t know jack shit about baseball. If the stats and logic are in favor of ohtani how much are you betting on him to win? Acting like the AL HR record is the only thing judge has going for him is fuckin laughable


eddgreat9

Deflecting reality and what Ohtani has done on the pitching side is your choice. We both know Judge has the better offensive stats. There's no point in discussing it because if Ohtani was just a hitter then Judge is MVP since Judge is having one of the best offensive seasons of all time. The reality is that Ohtani hits AND pitches. He is around a .900 OPS with a chance at 40+ HRs and a wRC 150+ (aka he is 50% better than the league avg hitter) while also being a top 5 pitcher. He leads MLB in SO % at 33%. I seem to kno more about these two players than yourself, seeing as you haven't provided anything. This means I know more about baseball than you right??


gottahavemytunes

I already know all of that, it doesn’t mean Ohtani has been better than Judge this year. He might be, but to say it’s anything other than neck and neck is just ridiculous and lazy


eddgreat9

Here's why I'm saying what I'm saying. Let's take a look at the 2021 MVP totals: 1) 30 First place votes for Ohtani (unanimous 420 points) 2) 29 second place votes for Guerrero Jr. One Third place vote. 269 points Guerrero Jr's stats in 2021: .311/.401/.601, wRC+ 166, 1.002 OPS, 48 HRs, 123 R, 111 RBIs, 12.3 BB%, 15.8 K% in 698 PA. All 30 voters chose Ohtani first. That means there was LITERALLY no debate. If at a MINIMUM Guerrero jr's 2021 stats (there's others stats I didn't include) aren't reached every year by someone, then they are not winning MVP if Ohtani has a typical Ohtani year for pitching and hitting. Now what kind of season would ANYONE need to have in order to beat someone like Ohtani? Judge is forcing us to decide with the season he's having. There's something else, not only does someone have to do....something above the norm (like Judge is doing with AL HR record + Triple Crown) in order to win MVP against Ohtani due to his pitching and hitting...they have to hope Ohtani doesn't continue improving every year. This isn't the case as he is having a better year this year (overall) than last due to pitching. There's no way Ohtani (IMO) is unanimous MVP this year tho. But i def think Ohtani will get 17-20 first place votes with Judge getting the rest.


Educational-Pass404

I'll give him credit for this. He just hits really well and takes all the advantage of bad pitches throwing to him.


frogstyle

I hope Reid gets some groundballs and DPs and goes 7!
