Never forget that Arte employs like 8 scouts and Dodgers employ 80.  From what I’ve seen commented on from guys at like Baseball prospectus and Baseball America. The Angels still haven’t committed the resources necessary to install the development infrastructure that the good teams in baseball have.  This also impacts what they get out of guys at the major league level.  I really believe that the Angels problems are rooted there.  

But we had cheap beer for a year bro!

The point is that Minasian has not brought in any scouts. His analytics department is going only off of out of date numbers from two seasons ago in the minors and college. He has 8 scouts. That isn't enough to cover California let alone the entire nation. 

Wow.  I just find that hard to believe.

Maddon should not have pulled Quintana.  The immediate results are evidence of the mistake.  And even if Quintana did end shitting himself.  That’s still a better situation then being stuck with the bullpen now.  It wasn’t the time. 

This is a fair statement but it’s not his fault the bullpen is absolute trash.  If he keeps him in and he melts down (which he probably would have) the morons here would be calling for his head for leaving Quintana in too long.

The scouting department has not grown.  Maybe that's something that happens this winter when he can sign guys who's contracts expire but they have not added to the domestic scouting dept.

I mean, they're behind other teams in scouting/infrastructure because it stems from the culture at the top.  Having an emotional, hands-on owner that wants to run his team like a marketing agency is never going to be as successful as teams that do their heavy lifting behind the scenes and let their on-field product speak for itself.   Arte isn't going to heavily invest in nerds and analytics while also letting the people he hires just do their jobs; that's never been his style and it never will be.

Wow. I didn't realize the Doggies signed Pujols for a pittance. 

Yeah, he didn't want to sit on the bench over here, so he'll now have a plethora of chances OVER THERE! LOL!

Sutton is stunned that the same shit keeps happening in almost exactly the same way ? Some real 70 IQ shit.  

After the 3 run bomb, Smith said on the radio that it was a "shocking" turn of events .

 

This bullpen. Shocking.

I’ll admit that Maddon’s quick hook was BS, but let’s not overlook the fact that the top 4 in the order are:

0-13 with 5 K’s.  That is about as dogshit as the pen and management are.

Rendon's injuries aren't helping, but a lot of people expected us to be a top offensive team in the league and we're trending towards bottom third in baseball.

We've basically been shit in all aspects.
