2018 Game 36: Land O’ Lakes Twins vs. Part of the Greater Metropolitan Los Angeles Area Angels

Hang onto your hats, gentlemen. Today's tilt features a match-up of two rookie hurling phenoms. In this corner, weighing in with a 3-1 record, a 4.10 ERA, and a 0.4 WAR is Shohei Ohtani. In the other corner, sporting a 2-0 record, and a 0.8 WAR, undefeated and unscored upon, Fernando Romero. It's only my humble opinion, but I'll put it out there - these are the two most exciting young pitchers in baseball at the moment. My brother-in-law in Orange will be in the stands today - wish I could join him. Play ball!

  1. That's the second time this series an angels player has complained after a pitch that was well within the strike zone.

  2. Boy, what's up with Kole Calhoun?

    (looking at his history, he was pretty disappointing last year after a strong first four years).

  3. Baked potato nacht: Icelandic yogurt, garden chives, cheddar cheese, pancetta, left-over grilled tomato/onions and broccoli.

    1. grilling chix breasts marinated in lemon juice, orange juice, garlic, dill, oregano, and olive oil, with sauteed broccoli.

    1. Joe would have been walked like they ended up doing anyways. It wasn't all that close but it was a great play made by all 3 players. Maldonado might have made the best play by catching it on an in-between hop. Adrianza didn't read it right away and hesitated around second, otherwise would have scored.

  4. Well, it sounds like sending him was the right call. Sometimes, when you force the other team to make a play, they make it.

  5. Watching the game while my wife and daughter launch the first expedition with 2 of these. As we live right across the street from a lake and have very nice neighbors we have an easy launch point.

  6. Well, it didn't end the way we wanted, but it was a darn good game, anyway. No disgrace losing that one.

    1. an unfortunate end. You gotta win more of those than you lose if you want to make the playoffs.

      Still, this has been a good road trip.

    1. Angels are 22-14 against all other teams. I would never be disappointed with a road split against a team with that good of a record, especially with Sano, Santana and Castro hurt.
