Horrific Playoff Record
The Angels haven’t reached the playoffs since 2014. They lost the first series of Mike Trout’s single trip to the postseason. But we have to go back to 2009 to find the last time they won a playoff game. It’s a shocking run that shows why they’re one of the most disastrous Major League franchises today.
Their long-suffering fans hoped that Ohtani’s addition would change their fortunes. Unfortunately, that hasn’t happened because baseball needs a balanced roster to win. Ohtani provides brilliant individual moments and shows why he’s a perennial MVP contender. But he can’t drag them to the promised land by himself (via Orange County Register).
