Apparently A's fans are unhappy with the Angels for not panicking

Recommended Posts

I still think there's a chance the Angels go after Colon.  By claiming him, the Angels would only have 48 hours to negotiate a trade, and the Mets could simply dump the contract on the Angels if they felt like it.  Now the Angels have more time and options.

Not sure you want to waste a lot of time, if you're going to make the deal.....with the commitment to Colon next year, we're paying a steep price for help this year (though you can certainly argue it's worth it, unless the Mets make unreasonable demands).....you want his fat ass on the mound Friday night against the A's if at all possible and then pitching in the 5 games (or whatever it is) after that...that said, I don't think we're going to make a move, Colon or anybody else...

In the NL.

 

In the NL equivalent of Angels Stadium.

 

Still, you have to like the control and the overall 2014 numbers.

 

Leading the NL in fewest walks/9innings (1.2), a career-best SO/BB ratio of 5.91, and 1.147 WHIP, also a career best.

 

Almost 7 innings per start too.

And the fact that this Saturday's rotation spot would see 5 of the 6 starts made in Anaheim, Minnesota, and Seattle. 

And the AL post-season appears to only have ONE team this season that plays in an offense happy ball park: Baltimore.

I am tempted to hit up Arlington for the Angels last series there. I figure any money spent on concessions will just be wasted by Daniels on another sore neck or sore arm underperforming player that will be on the DL by next May. I would feel a little guilty supporting this miss use of funds.

Double check the weather before heading out. I still can't understand why they didn't build an enclosed stadium.

Well I guess it all comes down to management.

 

They got us to the best record in baseball this year, despite my doubts and complaining. 

 

So I say **** it. Trust in the decision making. 

 

I can't wait until we smack Chokeland in the mouth.

We did all our panicking when Richards went down because we know there will be absolutely no way to replace him. The reality is that the offense must return to pre-ASB levels and as long as the replacement starters don't LeBlanc us, the bullpen is more than capable of getting us W's.

Everybody, commit to buying an extra beer at each game you attend.

Let's do this.

Of course, given where I attend Angels games, the Astros and Rangers would be pleased with this.

Every regular poster on this site buying a beer every time they visit the stadium for the rest of the year wouldn't pay for one plate appearance from Josh Hamilton.

Thanks for the math lesson, professor.

You realize that I wasn't in any way serious, right?
