Thoughts on the Angels?

1) Ohtani at the plate with Trout on deck is such an exciting thing. It's what Trout and Pujols should have been.

2) I wonder if Adell will ever be competent in the outfield or if I am going to hold my breath every time a ball is hit in his direction. 

3) I would have loved a win but it's just one game against the defending AL champs.

But, not a fan of Ohtani in the leadoff spot and Duffy in the 4 spot. 

To me it's Ohtani/Trout/Rendon 2/3/4.

I questioned Maddon's bullpen moves but it ended up working out (aside from Tepera).

How is that different than what we already have?  After the first inning there is nobdifference.

It just one game but the season is going to be maddoning!

1. I think the BP will be good, there is depht in the minor now.

2. Sp is still and will be a questionmark

3. Adell bat will determine if he's a bust or not and he should be in right

4. Duffy is going to be a solid player, but he should either be hitting 1st, 2nd, 7th or 8th. 

5. Rendon will start so, but I think the numbers will be their by the end.

6. We need to use the opposite field against left hand pitchers

7. Ideal top of line-up would be; Duffy, Othani, Trout, Rendon, Walsh (against right handers), Marsh, Stassi, Adell, Flec

Matt V. really gets excited on fly balls to OF. 

Think he jizzed on live broadcast when Ohtani hit the long out in the 8th.  Then he had the audacity 10 seconds later to call out the fans and players for overreacting.

A few notes:

 

1 - Adell looked terrible (circa 2020) - That throw in on the first run of the game was between home and first and he completely misplayed a ball by coming in and letting sail over his head... and then there were his ABs: where he was way too over aggressive swinging at balls well outside of the zone (two that were down and in after a text book set-up pitch)...

 

2 - I know this is going to sound weird because it was a quiet night offensively... but without Upton and Pujols in the line up... it feels more dynamic - There wasn't a point that I felt I could jump up and grab a refill or hit the head... just felt like there was much more promise and potential...

 

3 - Ohtani, Trout, Rendon... that's so fun to watch... and I agree with others: move Shohei out of the 1-hole - put Fletch there!

 

4 - The bully was solid overall

 

5 - This team is fast..

I agree with this, but then who bats leadoff?
