  1. Every night, @Chuckster70 sits on his porch and pours himself a nice little glass of scotch. He holds it up to the light and admires it. The setting suns rays shine through that little crystal bucket as he watches it set on the horizon beyond the river in the foreground. He places it on the small glass table next to him as he slightly reclines in his teak chair with comfy pads. He clips the end of a robusto or on some nights a double corona and strikes two matches till the tip glows a deep orange. Drawing slightly and puffing as he exhales perfect rings and watches them dance into the hor

    Operation ASSHAT

    The A's currently sit stop the AL West. Seattle is 2 games behind Houston, with the Angels and Texas in 4th and 5th. If Seattle can overtake Houston, then we're looking at an ASSHAT of a division.

  7. The longer this year went on without baseball, the less interested I became in this year. Not being able to go to games, just killed it for me. Watching it on TV just didn't do it for me. The fake fan noise, the crazy rules, etc., just didn't make it enjoyable. I tried to watch, but I ended up doing something else or watching something else most of the time. The negative crap in this forum got old reallly, really fast. So... I sort of took the year off. You could say I opted out. I'll be back, but I just didn't care that much this year. I got used to not having baseball and the

Know what every shooting ive ever handled had in common? Nothing except someone was shot. Ive seen people shot in the head live.

    Thanks TORS. My engine is currently assigned to the El Dorado Fire in Yucaipa. Been here since 9/4, but before that we were assigned to the Lightning CZU Complex near Santa Cruz and was there for 15 days. Ive seen the wife twice in 22 days, and missed the birth of Grandson #2 4 days ago. Haven’t seen much Halo baseball in the last 3 weeks because of crappy cell service, but for some reason near Forest Falls, I have a signal. Miss the AW board but will hopefully be back soon.

  12. This may not be everyone's cup of tea. If you don't have interest in more advanced stats, then look away. This exercise in only meant to provide a little insight into the future and how things might not be what you think or what you see. Granted, the outcome of each game is always going to be what's most important because wins and losses are what ultimately what determine whether you make the playoffs. But sometimes, especially in a 60 game season, the outcomes can be severely impacted by a small sample size and what was 'expected' may not actually align with what happened. So with

  14. Our logo needs to be fixed as it's only showing on the certain pages but not all. There's some website caching that needs to be completed still as well. Some other minor graphical web design stuff too, but the meat of the upgrade is done. You should see those minor fixes completed tomorrow. Thank you for your patience.

I want a chance at a World Series. That’s one thing that really drives me. I want a chance to pitch every fourth day instead of every fifth. That really drives me. Going along with that: how’s the medical staff? How’s the technology — the information that’s available on the coaching staff? What’s the culture of the organization like?” I would temper expectations a bit ladies and gents.

    Never Forget

    Whenever I reflect on this day I get emotional. To see those who jumped out of the buildings to their deaths was just riveting and raw. Those are images I'll never get out of my head. To hear those recordings of the flight staff calling into 911 operators or voice mail messages left for their loved ones. I remember how it brought everyone together despite one's politics or religion, that we saw each other as our brothers and sisters and as Americans. The bravery we witnessed by our first responders and those on flight 93 who didn't go down without a fight and saved possibly th

    Feeling burnt out.

    Disclaimer for @Lou, @st1ckboy and others, this will be a tl;dr. You're welcome. Anywho, so I woke up this morning after last night's elimination and immediately began pondering things for a while; my feelings about the team, the players, the ownership, the future, etc...I have just become so dispassionate and detached. Apathetic, even. I don't know if it's my regular depressive feelings or something else entirely, but as of right this second, I just don't care about the Angels. Now please don't think I'm giving up as a fan: This is my team until I die. I won't ever stop rooti

  28. Yes. Eppler's strength set the team on the right path. He got spending under control, rebuilt the farm system and proved an effective bullpen could be built for cheap. And now we need someone that can come in and make the team a winner. Someone that can acquire the pitching Eppler couldn't. Someone willing to trade the prospects Eppler wouldn't. While also keeping payroll in a healthy place.

  29. Arte gave him the chance. He had 5 years to build a winner, and he couldn't do it. He gave us a nice farm system, locked Trout up, and brought in Ohtani. Eppler is going to get another chance somewhere else and is going to do pretty well. If that dipshit Dipoto was given another shot, you know Billy will get one.

  32. I had high hopes for this trio for 2020 and beyond. That they would be able to lock down the 7th, 8th and 9th innings. yet they have combined for 48 innings and a 7.3 era. They haven't been just bad but absolutely dreadful. There have been some disappointing performances this year, but for me, this is right at the top of the list.

  35. They have allowed the 7th fewest HRs in the AL so far. The previous time they were in the top 9 was way back in 2015. Bundy and Heaney have allowed just SIX between them in 94 innings.

  39. Nope, this is the guy you all wanted. The guy you all said he was the mastermind of the 2002 season. You have to acknowledge he did commandeer the Angels to the best second half record, even though it will amount to nothing more than a mid level or worse draft pick. You've got two more years of this and you might as well suck it up and accept it.

  40. He's still capable, still able to catch up to FBs. His average exit velocity, hard hit rates, and stat cast data is right at or above where they were when the Angels acquired him. He handled his struggles like a pro and has come out of it looking very much like vintage Upton. This isn't about being right or wrong or liking or hating a guy. Its about the Angels needing him to be the player he's been if they stand any chance of competing while he's under contract. I'm relieved LF isn't one of the things this team needs to worry about going into the off-season.
