During that same stretch, they've allowed 35 runs. Yes, 35. 20 of those runs came in two games, each 10-run affairs, against two mediocre offenses in Minnesota and Oakland.
They have one sacrifice fly. They have five errors. They have one stolen base and have attempted to steal a base only twice.
What the hell team am I watching? The Pirates? The Orioles?
Advice to some Angels:
- Wood: Stop trying so hard to hit the ball and hit the ball. You're guessing. Stop guessing. Stop deciding to swing at the first pitch, not swing at the second, and swing at the third. I know what you're doing, and it's stupid.
- Abreu: Stop striking out. Start walking. You've done it your whole career, figure it out. You'd have an improved OBP this season if you never bothered to swing the bat at all.
- Scioscia: If Mathis plays another damn game while Napoli sits on the bench, I'm going to put you on a diet.
