We need a lefty out of the pen and possibly another lefty bat

I really think Jake is the solution at CF. Dude isn't elite at anything but he's good at everything.

Yuli has turned it around and is serviceable.

My goodness.

Is this the offense we were looking for 4-6 weeks ago?


Regression was inevitable.

This bad boy arrived today! I bought one kinda like this back in 2017 and all the graphics wore off it and it's now a blank white mug.

Found this online and snatched it up!

Dude is bat flippin his ass off up there

Is Luis in that clip? I see a guy that looks a heck of a lot like Jon Singleton and a bunch of white dudes.

Damn I didn't even realize Jon was on that team.

Thought that was Luis. Good call

Anyways...Still sucks that he was gone too soon. Loved watching him play.

Agreed - I loved watching him play too. Never a bad time to mention him.

Feeling really good about starting rotation. Also have McCullers and Odorizzi set to return.

Offensively the team has what it needs. Are there always potential upgrades? Sure.

Seems like lefty reliever is obvious need and upgrade over Blake Taylor who just hit 60 day DL.

Team chemistry a real consideration. Good mix of personalities, I don't anticipate Astros would move any core guys.

Don't forget guys, the Angels are REALLY close to the Astros

I was thinking about that and laughing after last night's game. Dumbass Maddon.

Man I've been scouring the internet for a replacement and finally found this one on a website like Etsy where it's just a marketplace for people to sell shlt...Bonanza.com

I wasn't convinced it would show up but figured for $15 it was worth a try. 3 days later here it is!

The record for most consecutive Ks by a position player is 9. Trout is on deck.

Exactly 2 months ago today the Angels were 2.5 games up in 1st place. They are now 14.5 back in 4th. They have given up 17 games in 2 months. That's the very definition of free fall.

That's a lot of money to be that bad.

The Astros are incredibly good right now. I wish the playoffs started tomorrow.


No ***** I'm always amazed, longhorns and Aggies will kill each other over football but can agree on just about anything else.

I don't frequent this thread as much as I do come playoff time. But I do have a very important question.... When did TOFA and AOFA get dropped after wins?

I mean this plus offense is getting back to where we should be because we've been unlucky or guys have been under performing to norms.

His free agency is going to be wild. Do teams see him as a two way player long term? Or do they think the risk is too great to offer him crazy money and just pray he pitches for years to come? Even if the pitching goes away five years from now, the hitting should still be there.

He will always be able to transition to LF or 1B if pitching doesn't last.

When the Astros started absolutely crushing teams. I'm on vacation but can bring it back soon if the masses deem it appropriate.

he will hit free agency as a pitcher & hitter. Should be asking for $40 MM per season.

perhaps stating the obvious...what happens with Judge and the Yankees will have a significant impact on Ohtani's free agency

one thing about Trout...and maybe it's a little bit of father time:

2018 ---> 122 walks and 124 strikeouts

2022 ---> 37 walks and 86 strikeouts

teams challenge him a lot more these days.

edit...to include Saturday's K's

Probably has more to do with Ohtani hitting behind him now vs in 2018

I kind of think he stays put. The Angels can pay market value to keep him so it wouldn't be the money, it's the loyal thing to do and Trout is doing same, his domestic fan base are Angels fans now like Yao's were the Rockets. He doesn't strike me as someone who's going to bail on the team to better his personal situation, as crazy as that seems when talking about professional sports.

Then again maybe that's me projecting and he'll surprise me.

Agreed. The Angels have shown a willingness to pay top dollar. I don't even see Ohtani reaching free agency.

Maybe they haven't told Ohtani there even is a playoff. You do your best for 162 and that's it.

Or they told him success is measured by number of ESPN highlights and mentions...maybe they even build him a little media trophy each year.
