Luke’s Look at All Things L.A.- Week of: 8/14/22-8/20/22

Angels: It’s not been a pretty week, but it often isn’t with this team. This is not going to be a winning season and we have known that for a while now, so let’s bring ourselves to look at the positives: We got two wins this week. We won back-to-back series’ for the first time since May 15th. We scored in every game this week, … Continue reading Luke’s Look at All Things L.A.- Week of: 8/14/22-8/20/22

Luke’s Look at All Things L.A.- Week of: 7/24/22-7/30/22

Angels:  7/24: Maybe my wish from last week’s Week Review is coming to fruition as somehow the Angels have managed to not only win a game, but stomp the Braves in the win today. It started strong in the first inning with a Taylor Ward homer and then The rest of the Angels followed suit, especially Max Stassi and Luis Rengifo, who I was really … Continue reading Luke’s Look at All Things L.A.- Week of: 7/24/22-7/30/22

Luke’s Look at All Things L.A.- Week of: 7/17/22-7/23/22

Angels:  7/22: It’s time someone said it. We can’t just put Shohei Ohtani on the mound and expect him to do it all by himself. Yes, he did give up six runs today, but they all came in the seventh inning, after he had already done far more than his fair share. He also only gave up six hits today, striking out 11. I don’t … Continue reading Luke’s Look at All Things L.A.- Week of: 7/17/22-7/23/22

Luke’s Look at All Things L.A.- Week of: 7/10/22-7/16/22

Angels:  7/10: This game from the Angels was rather promising, given the struggles the Halos’ batters were having last week. That being said, it appears that the Orioles saved their best for last, putting on a slew of hits to win the game 9-5. As I mentioned, however, there were some moments where I was impressed with Angels hitters. Monte Harrison had three RBIs on … Continue reading Luke’s Look at All Things L.A.- Week of: 7/10/22-7/16/22

Luke’s Look at All Things L.A.- Week of: 7/3/22-7/9/22

Angels:  7/3: Today’s game, although it was close, showed me something big. Either the Astros are just that good, or the Angels are in major trouble. In the 4-2 loss we saw more of the same shortcomings that we have seen all series. In all three games against the Astros the Angels were unable to get more than three hits per game. Not only that, … Continue reading Luke’s Look at All Things L.A.- Week of: 7/3/22-7/9/22

Luke’s Look at All Things L.A.- Week of: 6/26/22-7/2/22

Angels:  6/26: Well, the Angels certainly started the week off spicy against the Mariners. The first game of this week on Sunday, Angels pitcher Andrew Wantz beaned the Mariners outfielder Jesse Winker in the leg with a pitch in the second inning which lead to a brawl that cleared both dugouts and even the bullpens. After it was all said and done there were four … Continue reading Luke’s Look at All Things L.A.- Week of: 6/26/22-7/2/22

The Celtics: Where Do We Go From Here?

“How do you feel about the future?” “What could the Celtics have done differently?” Throughout my week-long reflection period, after the Celtics lost the finals, I was asked these two questions multiple times a day by people who know my love for the team. After lashing out to them about how awful their team is out of pure anger, I have now relaxed and prepared … Continue reading The Celtics: Where Do We Go From Here?
