In 2019, the Angels finished 72-90. It wasn’t pretty. The team finished just four games out of last, a position they had not inhabited in about twenty years. It was definitely frustrating.
What was more frustrating was that expectations were reasonably high going in. Of the seven staff writers were participated in our preseason expectations over/under count, the lowest was the prediction by Rick Souddress, who issued an Over/Under of 78.5. That’s still over six games above the actual total of seventy-two! I was way off, pegging my O/U total at 85.
