The LA Angels have six games left, folks. That’s right, the worst season ever is nearing an end.
However, this isn’t an article looking forward to the offseason, or recalling what has been a tumultuous year both on and off the diamond for the LA Angels. This is merely a message from me to you, about how we should enjoy these next six games as much as we can.
I’m sure I’m not alone when I say that it’s been hard to watch the Halos play recently. Oftentimes I don’t even tune in, and if it weren’t for writing articles and blogs about the team, I’d have been tuning in less.

But honestly, I already regret it.
This is for a lot of reasons. For one, and the most obvious, the Angels won’t play baseball for six months following this Sunday. Kole Calhoun might not be an Angel after Sunday. Albert Pujols won’t climb anymore all-time leaderboards for six whole months. Trevor Cahill won’t give up any more inevitable home runs out of the bullpen!
That last one was a joke, by I sure do admire his consistency.
But seriously guys, no baseball for six months! 185 days without the boys in red and white taking the diamond.
So let’s try our best to enjoy this final week. Sure, Mike Trout won’t be playing. Shohei Ohtani and Justin Upton have hit their final big flies of the year as well. Even Griffin Canning is done for the season.
So yeah, there might not be a ton of reasons to watch these next 54 innings of baseball. And yeah, this season was amongst the biggest let downs in recent memory. The Angels very well could have won their final game of 2019 too.
Okay, this is getting depressing.
But still, I think each and every one of us Angels fans can agree on one thing. Watching the Angels lose and lose and lose is better than the dry days of October as we watch better teams in the postseason, November as we fail to sign Gerrit Cole, December where Billy Eppler signs Hyun-Jin Ryu to a 7-year deal, January when we start talking ourselves into contending, and February when the Spring Training injuries begin to mount.
Angels baseball is Angels baseball, no matter how many games we lose. And for that reason alone, let’s watch the next 162 outs with as much passion and glee as we can for a fan base in a seemingly endless tunnel of Tommy John and meaningless games in September.
