Olney's latest on the Angels.


Recommended Posts

He doesn't really say much.  Just posts Scioscia's quote about Hamilton's mistake last night, and then this blurb:

 

"That's a mental mistake, but the physical failings are piling up, too. So far this season, opposing hitters are batting .301 against the Angels' starting pitchers, who have a 6.02 ERA. Hamilton, meanwhile, is batting .179 with 2 doubles, no homers and 14 strikeouts in 39 at-bats. Mike Trout is hitting .227, and rival evaluators have been struck by how the joy he played with last year seems diminished. "He looks like he's not having any fun," said one scout. As a team, the Angels have a .385 slugging percentage.

 

For every action, there is a reaction, and the presumption in baseball is that Moreno -- who is said to be much more competitive and George Steinbrenner-esque than his public image -- will react. Will that mean roster changes? A managerial change with Scioscia, which would have been unthinkable a year ago?

 

Stay tuned."

This is what I said last night in the chat and was laughed at. Granted, I was half joking, but Jeez! Looks like I was more right than even I thought!

How much fun do you think it is playing for a team with a .200 winning percentage?

You mean insulting a 21 year old who saved your season and who most experts had as the best player in baseball last year is not supposed to affect him? I would ask Bryce Harper, but he's getting $2,000,000 this season.

 

Because he got a contract out of the draft that guaranteed him that.
