Gameday Thread: 8/17 White Sox @ Angels : Trout DH

Recommended Posts

Hope Suarez can at least get through four innings while giving up fewer than four runs. Is that too much to ask?

On the same topic, if we had something vaguely resembling a starting rotation, young Jose would still be in the minors figuring out how to pitch effectively. In an ideal world we wouldn't even be seeing him for a couple more years.

It’s gotten to the point that I cringe every time Pujols does something of value.  I imagine him strutting in front of his mirror at home saying “yup, I still got it.”   Since the playoffs are out of reach I hope for a nice 0 for 80 to end the season to give home something to think about.

The eighth and ninth batters are below the Mendoza line. Though with limited at bats they don't look particularly good hitters. 

Tovar obviously is a fill in, but looking at the lineup there are many hitters below .250. 6 of 9 of tonight's starters! 

I know average isn't as big a measure as it used to be, but it does factor in. Puts a lot of pressure on the others, game in, game out. 

Fletcher should be the template for some of the other positions. Intelligent, uses all fields, works the pitcher, respectable power if he gets the right pitch.

Kind of boring and predictable waiting for a Trout AB, hoping he carries the team night after night. Or hoping for a Pujols or Calhoun homerun when most of their plate appearances aren't dependable.

In before someone says Goodwin would have thrown him out at home. 

The one thing that the Angels failed to evaluate when they made the trade for Upton was his arm. They focused on his bat. I’m not saying that anyone would’ve thrown out that runner but that was a terrible and unnecessary throw. His outfield judgment is not very good.
