    The only true setback was the Halos signing him in the first place.

    Last Night Was Fun

    The Dodgers and their fans rolled into Anaheim with their sea of blue, their fans bravado, and their "LET'S GO DOD-GERS" chant. It actually had a playoff style environment last night. The crowd was the biggest I've seen in years and while the Dodger fans were loud, I didn't see any extra curricular stuff in the stands. When the Dodgers went up 3-0, I honestly felt the game was going to get bad quick, but credit to Canning, who settled down and really pitched his ass off. When Kole hit that home run, it got substantially more quiet, yet I think the Dodger fans thought they clearly had this game in the bag. The middle innings, the pitchers settled in and the Dodger fans started their cheers again. That's when the magic of the 7th inning happened. Apparently, Dodger fans aren't exactly thrilled with Dylan Floro. He's probably the equivalent of Justin Anderson for the Dodgers. Hard throwing guy, but makes mistakes. The Dodger fans behind me were already nervous when Trout came to the plate. When Trout hit that bomb (with 2 strikes on him), the stadium was as loud as it was since 2002 when Speiz hit his HR. The place went nuts and it was awesome to hear the Dodger fans in their stunned silence. The only thing that was better, was when Joe Kelly came in. THAT'S when the REAL Dodger fan bitching started and it was awesome. To score 2 runs on 0 hits was insane, but to watch the Dodgers simply implode was even better. And their fans.....holy crap. You would have thought this was the World Series again. Cussing, complaining, and heading for the exits. Of course as Angel fans, nothing is ever easy for us with our bullpen and Ty Buttrey and Hansel Robles sure made things uneasy. But I give credit where credit is due. The entire bullpen, including Cam Bedrosian, stepped up and did the job. It was a great win last night. Yes, it's only one game, and yes, we're still under .500, but the atmosphere and the environment took me back to the days when that was the normal at Anaheim Stadium. And it was fun for once.

    The guy with the limericks has style. There once was a pitcher named Floro Whose presence caused infinite sorrow When facing Mike Trout There wasn't a doubt He hammered it into tomorrow

    Tim Mead's final day as a Halo

    Victor and Guby just had a nice farewell interview with Tim Mead. This is his final games with the Halos organization as he flies to the East Coast later this week to take over his new duties at the HOF in Cooperstown, He spent some 40 years or so with the Halos. They need a special Administrative wing Halos HOF plaque for him. Has anyone been with the organization longer in any capacity than him? Maybe a peanut vendor or something, Godspeed Tim Mead, best to you at the HOF. The Halos will now share him with Baseball history. He sure was a friend to AngelsWin.Com

    I think it is probably a little myopic for us to compare Adell to Springer, Upton and Hunter. If he has the career of Upton or Hunter or consistently puts up years like Springer has that is a major win. Someone on here last year said Adell had the floor of Upton, that is pretty arrogant. Upton will retire with 350-400 home runs and will be in the Hall of Very Good. If Adell can be close to any of these guys then we have ourselves a helluva player. He can be less than those guys and guess what? We still have a helluva player. My fear is if he isn’t a Hunter, Upton or Springer he will be looked at as a failure, much like Howie and it will all be because of fan expectation narrative.

    Griffin Canning is what happens when a team invests in pitching, developes it and gets lucky. They invested a high draft pick on him, something they should've been doing the last two years but for some reason haven't. They developed him and saw his arsenal reach an entirely different level. And they've gotten lucky. What was a mid to back end starter in college became a mid rotation starter as he developed in the minors and now that he's in the majors, he's looking more like a front to mid rotation starter. Now all we need is Ohtani healthy, and a fully developed Chris Rodriguez and Jose Soriano. If that happens, the Angels will not lose many games. Not with an offense featuring Trout, Adell, Marsh, Ohtani....not with an Eppler built bullpen. The Angels are going to start winning a lot of games in 2020, but come 2022, they're going to be the elite team in the AL. I hope to see a lot of Angels vs Padres World Series matchups next decade.

    I always preferred California Angels because it is what i grew up on. Anyhow, no one cares about the Anaheim name except people who live in Orange County. Don't forget that for the rest of the country, "Anaheim" doesn't mean anything - it is just a suburb of LA, and technically in the LA metro area, so Los Angeles Angels isn't actually inaccurate if you consider "Los Angeles" to include the entire metro area.

    I'm pretty amused that there are actual baseball fans who would rather watch Vogelbach play an exhibition game than Ohtani

    Hell of a job by Canning to put up four scoreless innings against this Dodgers lineup after surrendering those three runs in the 2nd. This is the kind of young pitcher who gives you optimism about the future.

    Last Night Was Fun

    It took foreverrrrrrrrrr to get in the parking lot yesterday. Maybe we've been wrong and Chavez Latrine hasn't had a bad parking situation all along but it's just the retarded Doyyer fans who don't know how to drive to and from a stadium. Or maybe...

    Canning

    Four quality pitches.... When one isn't working you go with something else. This is what it looks like. Im sure you guys noticed after one of those hard hit balls he did this very slight shrug, like .. meh... thats not working. That was IMO an insight into who he is and the pitcher he will be.
