Will The Angels Ever Win Again? Jered Weaver Takes Hill Looking To Stop Losing Streak

( Photo Credit: LA Times)

I’d be lying if I said I was engaged with the Angels lately. Their play of late has been uninspiring. Gone is the excitement of years past,  the hit and run , the steals, the first to third the “yea they are down by 3 runs but you know they’ll come back at some point”. Offense Something is missing with this club and sadly I don’t see it returning any time soon – barring a trade deadline miracle or a sudden awakening at the plate with runners in scoring position.  Get em on – get em over –  get em in – used to be the Halos motto. Nowadays its more like get em on ……….. and watch em sit. Instead of expecting the club to score on the lead-off double or lead-off triple ( as was the case last night) you instead find yourself watching to see how the Angels can manage to ruin  another golden run scoring opportunity. I’ll give them credit for one thing – they get more creative at blowing scoring chances every time.

End Rant.

    Dude this is a fcking joke! I’m watching the game then I read ur post post! 2 and 3rd nobody out Angels don’t score. Bases loaded given 2 runners 1 out and Angels don’t score!? Fire Hatcher already these guy have no clue how to situational hit. They are up there with no plan and no chance!!

    Man I here you David. Sadly The likelihood of Scioscia actually firing Hatcher is at about the same probability of the Halos getting a clutch hit.

    Hatch is Sosh’s boy and as we’ve seen over the Years Mike is an extremely loyal dude. So sadly I’m afraid we’re stuck with the results were getting now. Hatcher shouldn’t get all the blame. In any sport its up to the players to execute a game plan. The issue is that from my vantage point the Halos (minus Abreu) never seem bat with a specific plan against pitchers and that rest solely on Hatch’s shoulders.
