Gameday Thread: Angels vs. Astros (4-5-2021)


Recommended Posts

We were never this tenacious during our record start to the 2018 season, I am still shocked we pulled this one off against yet another juggernaut team.  Feels weird, like, we might be more talented than anyone expected.  Let us all hope it lasts through the Summer, because we're going to need it, the A's won't continue rolling over and we will probably play them out of their slump.

Man I haven't been this pumped on the Angels in a long time.  The team isn't even firing on all cylinders yet too. 

Man, that was a tough read.

Sometimes, the sum of the parts is better than the individual pieces.  I feel that may be true with our bullpen in particular.  Minasian talked this winter about getting guys who throw different kinds of pitches from different arm angles.  Individually, most aren't terribly impressive, but they seem to be pretty good when they're following one another and showing hitters vastly different looks.

The SP has been respectable - not great, but not bad.  The bullpen, though, has been rather solid and kept us in games, which has enabled our offense to come through and win it.  Given how great our offense is, if we can just keep with this formula (decent starts, good BP efforts), we should be in most games and win a number of them.

I know it's hindsight 20-20 but I really wish Maddon had went back to Mayers for the 9th inning. He had several outings where he went more than 1.0 innings pitched (7 of his last 9 appearances of the 2020 season lasted at least 1.2 innings). Even most recently he went 1.2 innings his last outing against the White Sox. It only took 11 pitches for him to get through a clean 8th.
