    I know this season is a mockery, but this might as well be Game 7 of the World Series for Halos fans.

    Back in the 1980s the Atlanta Braves were shit. TBS was broadcasting a game where the Braves were getting pummelled. Skip Carey was announcing the game. It was so bad, in the 8th inning Carey said "If you promise to buy our sponsors' products, you have our permission to turn this game off and go do something else."

    The Red Sox starting rotation is garbage even with David Price in there. He's not pitching well at all. And Clay Buchholz? Fucking guy should have been released in 2009. They keep him around. I feel like he has compromising photos of John Henry on a flash drive somewhere. I just don't get it.

    The Angles suck right now but not last night. Last night they killed a team in the dumpster fire AL East.

    On the whole this season has been one of the least interesting seasons since I've been following baseball as a young pup. Maybe I miss the steroids? But I love the good pitching...and then Kershaw ends up on the DL. Whatevs. Have a moment Halos. This whole winning thing this year is a rare feat.

    I saw the whole thing, was surreal how effective they were after three months of everyone-stinks-except-for-Trout ... if anything, this will skew the team stats to make them seem like they're not as bad as they've been.

    Agree Kershaw is this generation's Pedro -- kills me that he's on the Dodgers. Max Scherzer and Jose Fernandez are doing some tremendous stuff strikeout-wise, not in Kershaw's tier, but knocking on the door.

    I'm predicting Red Sox pitching coach Carl Willis gets fired at the all-star break.

    Manager John Farrell should go too, but might survive until the end of the season. In any event, in my 45 years on this earth and a lifelong Red Sox fan, I can't recall a pitching staff this atrocious. Steven Wright is the only starting pitcher that can go out there right now and give you hope that the opponent won't score more than six runs.

    Price has to come around, he's still getting his Ks so I wouldn't panic on him.

    Not the franchise's worst blunder: Pujols is a pro, shows up to work, does his bescht and still can hit for power. Trout would get walked at a Bonds pace if he wasn't there.

    What's killing 'em is the Josh Hamilton contract they're still paying on, the lack of a farm system and a plague of rotation injuries (Richards, Heaney, Skaggs, Wilson). Gonna take some rebuilding measures, shrewd signings and plain 'ol luck to reemerge as a threat for next year.

    WTF? Did all of the Sox go for a Fenway Frank during the 7th inning stretch?

    Angels teammates accomplish feat not seen since 1936
    Big League Stew
    Mark Townsend 11 hours ago

    Cron's six-hit, two-homer game
    C.J. Cron goes 6-for-6 with two homer, five RBIs and five runs scored and ties the franchise record for hits in a game in the Angels' win
    Baseball is a funny game sometimes.

    On Friday, the Los Angeles Angels were left frustrated after their ninth-inning rally in Boston came up inches short…. literally. On Saturday, they left nothing to chance as they stampeded the Red Sox by the score of 21-2.


    That’s a beatdown unlike any we’ve seen in MLB this season. The Angels 21 runs were a league-high, as was their 19-run margin of victory. It was also the first time the Angels scored 20 or more runs since 2004.

    Naturally, when a team breaks out for 21 runs on a season-high 22 hits, that means a lot of guys had really productive games. In this instance, two Angels teammates stood out by combining to do something not seen in MLB since 1936.

    And we’ll give you this hint: Neither of them were named Mike Trout.

    No, it was the duo C.J. Cron and Carlos Perez who combined to make history. Cron finished the game 6-for-6 with two home runs, six RBIs and five runs scored. Perez went 5-for-6 with a home run and five RBIs of his own, which put together made them the most productive teammates in a single game in 80 years.


    In a funny aside, the duo rattled off 11 straight hits until the ninth inning when Perez was retired by outfielder Ryan LaMarre, who entered as Boston’s mop up man.

    In another interesting footnote, LaMarre was the only one of Boston’s five pitchers to not allow a run.
