  1. FIFY The Angels have not had a problem developing position players, especially recently. They HAVE had a problem developing pitchers.
  2. Cole, Burnes, Ohtani, Means, Quantrill
  3. Took long enough to send Petrickass Petracking.
  4. It's a dilemma... wrapped in a conundrum... inside a quandary.
  5. Yes. the pitching is terrible. This should surprise no one. However, the offense is not doing its part. In all three games, the Angels took an early lead, then went into cruise control for the rest of the game. Luckily, the offense scored enough runs early on Tuesday to ensure that the bad pitching wasn't able to cough up the lead. Yet, they almost did anyway.
  6. How do we take a 1-0 lead, on the second pitch of the game, and LOSE 13-1? To the fuckIng Orioles?
  7. Yes, but depending on the form of fentanyl, that could be construed as illegal. Illegal fentanyl is sold in the following forms: as a powder, dropped on blotter paper like small candies, in eye droppers or nasal sprays, or made into pills that look like real prescription opioids. Illegal fentanyl is being mixed with other drugs, such as cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine, and MDMA. Fentanyl DrugFacts | National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA)
  8. If this is true (and I have no reason to doubt the veracity of this story), the whole front office shares in the blame. There should be a housecleaning of every executive who was here while that was going on, because this sounds like an open secret that the Carpino, Mead, et al. had to be aware of. If they weren't, then they should be held accountable for their lack of awareness. There is no excuse. Everyone who was in the front office while this was happening, Carpino on down, needs to be sacked. I would say that Arte needs to sell the team as well, but I know that he won't, as the value has surely dipped because of this scandal--and because the team is...mediocre.
  9. They may have the Trump vetting process: "I'll hire only the best people..."
  10. Ummmmmm....Max Scherzer?
  11. I like it. We have lots of arms whose floor is late innings reliever (we've needed that for years) and whose ceiling is top of the rotation arm. We also have some toolsy hitters who have a good eye. That Plasensia slash line (.226/.407/.484), albeit in Rookie ball, really stands out. Obviously, not every player on this list pans out. However, if 4-5 of them do...
