A 162-game season is long enough where this time of year is usually too early for a lot of things. Through the first five games of the 2021 season one thing is certain. A lot of fans still do not like the Astros, and they were reminded in the first of two games against the Angels in Anaheim.
Like their previous series in Oakland, Angels fans greeted Houston with boos and heckling. Other than former Halos catcher Martin Maldonado who got a few cheers.
Angels fans tossed real and inflatable trash on the field against the Astros.
One fan came prepared with their own inflatable trash can, and it turns out he roots for another Southern California baseball team.
Angels and Dodgers fans coming together is usually a rare occurrence, but their shared dislike of the Astros and their cheating scandal is a uniting force.
That fan and his inflatable wasn’t alone in displaying his displeasure.
Props to Houston though, the Astros did not let the distractions stop them in their fourth-straight trip to the ALCS in 2020. They currently lead the league in many offensive categories and are off to a 4-0 start to the season. As I type this they currently lead the Angels 5-3 in the bottom of the seventh inning.

As much as fans and MLB teams hate Houston for what they did, the best ways to get back at the first place Astros is to beat them on the field, just as the Angels did on Monday
That being said, it’s very entertaining so I won’t complain if any more inflatable trash cans are tossed the Astros way this season.
