Mike Trout has reached his breaking point with the Angels this year as even he can tell when the pitching team is tipping pitches.
It’s never a good sign when Trout, no less from the outfield, can see the Angels’ pitching staff passing their pitches to the opponent.
Trout and Shohei Ohtani hit home runs Tuesday night. Ohtani had a pair of RBIs and they had four hits together. Los Angeles still found a way to lose 11-4.
It’s an all-too-familiar theme for Trout in his more than ten-year life at Anaheim. trout awards — three MVPs, eight Silver Sluggers, nine All-Star Appearances, and two All-Star Game MVPs — make it all the more frustrating that the best player in baseball has yet to make a World Series. In fact, the Angels’ lack of postseason success is a black eye on the game itself. Trout deserves better, and he knows it.
Mike Trout knew Angels typed pitches. It does not matter
Angel’s pitching coach Mike Trout? It’s the only answer after Tuesday night’s debacle. Hell, let’s make him manager, considering the front office fired Joe Maddon mid season.
LAA lost 11-4 to the mediocre Chicago White Sox. The Angels’ pitching team — which included five pitchers Tuesday — gave up 17 hits and 11 runs. It was brutal to watch, let alone play along.
Elvis Peguero was the hurler who dumped the pitches last night. He gave up four earned runs in less than an inning.
Trout and Ohtani are phenomenal talents, but the team as a whole is far too top-heavy. All your money is going to be invested in these two, or in Anthony Rendon, who is too often on the injured list. Ohtani could also come out on top shortly, which would come as no surprise to anyone as he prioritizes winning over everything else.
