    Team is turning to complete ass against the weak part of the schedule.

    Berrios throwing BP and beyond the lead off homer we can’t hit.

    Rocco needs to at some point incorporate some small ball in this lineup. Especially when you’re sitting fucking Cruz, Kepler and Schoop.

    2 on not outs vs a lefty should be a Castro bunt

    Kepler is a fucking jackass

    Lead off double. All you gotta do is a hit a grounder.

    He comes out taking up cut hacks and foul pop ups.

    One thing to love about this team.

    Is the way they win home games against bad teams

    It’s Sano time.

    Garver and Cruz out at same time is not good.

    I think it’ll be sooner and this will make it so.

    This is the time when we have legit use for Sano.

    Garver is gonna be out at least a month. And while Cruz isn’t on IL I’m not really sure what his status is going forward

    Wow, I'm surprised. late last week they were saying they wanted him to play like ten games in a row to get used to the daily grind.

    Guess injuries change plans.

    We had better learn how to move runners around. We are wasting runs all over the place. Homers are nice, but Jesus, there is more to winning than just hanging back, waiting for a bomb to leave the yard. We are getting spoiled. Forgetting our fundamentals. Thats multiple games in a row we have missed golden opportunities.

    But thank God they didnt put in Dingleberger yesterday. The guys a losser. Shouldnt even be on the roster. Last year he sucked. What was his ERA? Like 5.00? And damn near every runner he inherited scored. And now he is doing it again. Dont need a reliever like that....EVER! Do not bring up Reed either. Another dead fish.

    He more than likely isn't/wasn't going to be an everyday player, anyway...

    Hopefully, all Garver needs is the 10 day stint, and it's not more serious/ :hope:

    Yeah the situational hitting has to improve.

    Outside of Buxton we already have zero base stealing presence. Can’t compound that by refusing to move runners over with fundamental Abs rather than homer swings.

    Keplers at bat the other night was inexcusable.

    Come October you need productive ABs. We know Rosario will never really be that guy to move runners, but some of these guys gotta do it.

    • People need to start losing jobs if pitchers are not added

    This is embarrassing.

    I can’t name 50% of the Angels position players throughout this weekend.

    They have like 40 hits in 3 games
