There is no coming back from this.
There is no climbing out of this deep, deep hole.
There is no excuse for this embarrassment.
There is no excuse for the Angels to be this bad.
There is no quick fix for the Angels.
There is no move they can make that will make this better.
This team sucks.
This team sucks hard.
This team sucks long and hard.

There may not be a quick fix, but why not try something different? It probably won't make a difference, but let's change the batting order. Let's move Trout to leadoff or 3rd. Who cares about Pujols' ego?! Hamilton in the 5th slot is still killing us. Move him down to 7th. Kendrick is a freakin' double play made to order. He should be last. Move him down too. Ianetta gets on base, he should be 2nd.
I would start the runners more and play hit and run. These hitters are trying to be too patient at the plate and can't decide whether to swing or not. Start the runners and take that decision out of their hands (or brains).
I don't know if this stuff would work, but as a fan, I'd appreciate seeing someone try something different. (And Trumbo should stop trying to pull everything.)
On the bright side, you no longer have to entertain false hope only to have it dashed late in the summer. The season is officially over. Wait 'til next year!
