The LA Angels have been absolutely ravaged by injuries this season.
Our franchise player has been out since Mid-May, expensive Justin Upton got hurt and hasn’t been any good since, Max Stassi has been on the IL for a few different stints, Dexter Fowler got hurt right away, 2021 All-Star Jared Walsh missed time, No. 2 starter Alex Cobb hasn’t played since July 23rd, No. 3 starter Patrick Sandoval is out for the year, and $210 million man Anthony Rendon has hardly played at all this year. No team other than the New York Yankees has had the type of injuries we have this season. Even then, they at least didn’t have the best baseball player of the last decade out almost all year.
It appears this is really getting to the Angels however, as it looks like they’ll take anyone nowadays.
Are the LA Angels so depleted by injuries that they’re going after used car salesmen these days?
If true, the LA Angels have reached an all-time low.
In all seriousness, though, it appears that this is what happened:
I have no idea how this error wasn’t noticed before they made the post, but it made me laugh today. It made me laugh in September of a season where we have no playoff hopes and are sitting at 70-73 right now.
Maybe they could use a used car salesman. Anything to give us enough bodies to push through the rest of the season. At this point, we’re all looking forward to 2022.
Arte Moreno is worth $3.6 billion, however, so hopefully our standards will be a little bit higher when looking for players this offseason.
