Are you going to do this every time the Angels lose? The Angels have come back to have the sixth best record in the American League, and are only like 4 games back of the Yankees for best record in the American League, and you're gripping about a loss?
If a team wins 3 games for every 2 games they lose, they end with a .600 Winning Pct, and are pretty much a shoe-in for the Playoffs...if not best record of their league.
"This dropping into the shutout club isn't going to bring a championship."
We've been shutout one time since Hatcher was fired. That was last night.
"Now they are again opening the lead for the Rangers."
Since when, yesterday?
You need to relax. There's still like 100 games left in the season.
As I figured, and I checked the Times to make sure, you're using Saunders' comment completely out of context to try to prove your point, but it won't work.
This is what he said: ""There've been a lot of changes over there," Saunders said about the Angels. "A lot of guys who were there when I was there have moved on. It's almost like any other team now.""
All he meant was that it no longer hurt so much that he's no longer an Angel, because a lot of the Angels are different players than those who were his teammates. So nice try!

Actually, I'm not sure about that. The account dates back to last year.
There are a couple of screen names posting now that I'm suspicious of and they're fairly new accounts, but I'm simply not responding to either of them. One is a new account from June 13th, and that is the perfect timeframe.
But as I said, I'm not responding to either screen name, which makes it easier on everyone else's sanity. ;)
So because we lose one game, it's all gloom and doom? If you look closely at the major league standings, no one is really tearing it up. Yes, we're not playing as well as we can (never will be for this board), but we're in it for the long run. Did anyone really think we were going to have a cake walk? It is, always has been, going to be a close race.
Relax and enjoy.
"Listen Justin, the Angels are going to lose games. "
Are you sure it's Justin? Justin usually sounds smarter then this person.
