The Angels had a huge opportunity to become the biggest franchise in the region. But the Dodgers came along and casually won the World Series in 2020. They defeated the Rays to claim their seventh title. The Angels don’t even make the playoffs despite having two recent AL MVPs on their roster.
It’s baffling that they’re so consistently bad and we almost admire them for it. The Dodgers showed the world everything that’s wrong with the Angels and their business model. But they still haven’t learned from their mistakes (via L.A. Times).
