Season high point and low point


Recommended Posts

It's amazing how much affect losing that 16 inning game had.

It pretty much depleted the entire starting staff already missing its two top starters.

It caused the team to use two below average AAA starters and lost the series to one of the worst teams in the major league.

And now that seemed to have snowballed into losing badly against possibly the worst team at least in the AL.

Season high point:  The combined no hitter the night the Angels honored Tyler Skaggs

Season low point:  Having to honor Tyler Skaggs at all

Agreed.

The no hitter felt supernatural in some ways.

Purely baseball wise, the series against Baltimore and last night combine into one extended period of misery. 

A big letdown after the Dodger momentum. Recognizing two terrible teams were coming in for this home stand and pretty much embarrassing themselves multiple times. The Thaiss homer was one tiny bit of relief and it couldn't even spark the next game.

In retrospect I think we'll see that this season will be hard to judge because of that Skaggs lingering intangible.

I couldn't agree more.

The question on the surface is a fairly easy one to answer, in light of the steaming pile of lawn sausage the Angels left on all our yards the last few days.  This coming on the heels of beating arguably one of the best teams in baseball, not once, but 4 times.

But in reality, baseball is just a game.  It's a release, and we are fans.  Many of us are not only fans, we invest a lot of time, money and energy into the team and maybe feel like we're "super fans."  But in reality, it is just a long series of games.

I looked at the question as not just a fan, but as a human being, like Stradling and Erstad Grit did.  The question itself was a lobbed softball, and in lieu of this week would have been easy.
