Changes are forthcoming for the Los Angeles Angels.
In the midst of a horrible season, more drama has surfaced as it became public that Arte Moreno, the team’s owner since 2003, was planning to potentially sell the franchise.
This means that the Angels could potentially have a different look in 2023 and beyond.
But for now, they’re stuck in the sad reality that is the 2022 season.
Last night’s 11-1 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays was their fourth straight as the Halos only continue to plummet.
Sam Blum of The Athletic gave Angels fans a sad reminder last night on Twitter, stating that the Angels are still in the midst of a terrible season and will need to go better than 15-24 the rest of the way if they are to avoid tying the worst season in franchise history.
With change potentially coming, there is still the reality of the 2022 season.
The Angels lost 11-1. They’ve lost 4 in a row and have scored 6 runs in 5 games on the road trip.
The Angels need to go better than 15-24 to avoid tying the worst season in Angels history.

Angels Stuck In Reality
Next year, there may be some big changes for the Angels that lead to what could be a bright future.
But for now, the Angels are still in the midst of a horrendous season.
This is a team that looked like a contender early on in the season and ultimately fell apart.
Now, they’re well out of postseason contention and will soon have to deal with the drama surrounding Moreno’s decision to potentially sell the team.
Under Moreno, the Angels haven’t had too much success and have pretty much been playing second fiddle to the Los Angeles Dodgers for several years.
Nothing can save them from an ugly finish this season, and even if changes are coming and they’re for the better, they can’t escape the fact that this season has been absolutely miserable and that there’s no way out until the season is over.
