It’s been more of the same for the Los Angeles Angels.
After starting out with the second-best record in the American League, the Halos plummeted into fourth place in the AL West division, 23.5 games behind the Houston Astros.
They’ve gone through a 14-game losing skid, fired their manager, and continued to collapse as the season progresses.
They are now well out of postseason contention, meaning they have wasted yet another year of Mike Trout and Shohei Ohtani.
Rhett Bollinger, the Angels’ MLB.com beat writer, tweeted that the Angels finished the month of July with a .199 batting average, which is another way of saying that hitters went 156-for-782.
