Just when everybody thought that things couldn’t get any worse for the Los Angeles Angels, things got even worse.
While the New York Yankees keep winning games, the Angels can’t seem to stop losing games.
With their loss yesterday to the surging Baltimore Orioles, the Angels finished their road trip with a 1-8 record and fell 11 games below the .500 mark.
One Angels insider points out on Twitter just how bad things have gotten, and that there really is no way to sugarcoat it.
The Angels were swept by the Orioles.
They finished off the road trip with a 1-8 record.
They are 11 games below .500 (after once being 11 games above).
They are 18.5 games out of the division, 7.5 out of the WC.
No way to sugarcoat it. They're playing really badly.

The Slide Continues
The Halos just can’t stop losing.
After a hot start to the regular season, they have completely fallen apart.
Trout and Ohtani have been forced to carry the load.
The Angels were once 11 games over the .500 mark, even at one point leading the American League West division and having the second-best record in the entire American League.
On the roster, there is a ton of talent, but it hasn’t saved them from their fate thus far.
They sit 19 games out of first place in the AL West and are seven games behind the Seattle Mariners and Toronto Blue Jays, who are tied for the third AL Wild Card.
There’s no other way to put it.
The Angels have been playing very bad baseball ever since they went on that epic 14-game losing skid.
They haven’t found their way out of it, and it looks like they may never as the trade deadline approaches.
