I've never made a game thread for any sport, but I'm sick of losing - enough is enough.

Angels are 2-8 in their last 10 just like we are. This is our chance to win a few games and split or maybe even take a series. Although the starters for the first 2 games leave a little to be desired.

I hope Schad feels suitably bad about this.

I'm not sure I want to watch Mat Latos.

Mine was up first, but I'm happier to see someone who hasn't failed miserably take a crack at it. There's even a chance he might not have the game thread wasting disease yet.

Also, the only thing better than a bad joke is a truly wretched one, so there.

The Welsh word for wretched seems to be "truenus", which I am completely fine with.

Yea it took me some time to write it up and then once I hit submit I noticed Schad made one 7 minutes before

My record is 0-0 right now. We have nothing to lose

Although those first 2 games don't look good for us

Can't wait to see Latos groove a 90mph fastball to Trout.

That's seven strikeouts in a row for Bautista, if I'm not mistaken.

"[Pillar] is their hottest hitter, I can't believe they're taking the bat out of his hands."

An actual phrase uttered with conviction.

Our offense looks merely terrible when the opposing defence makes a bunch of errors.

Rare terrible decision from Trout to bail out Latos.

Well it wasn't grooved, but you got the speed right. Hope you enjoyed it.

So how long are we sticking with a .100 hitter in the top of the lineup?

Sad watching Bautista fall off a cliff like this. At this rate, he's not getting a contract from any team to play next year, as a starter at least. Nice to see he still shows up the umpires by throwing his bat before ball 4 is even called though lol.
