The Monkey Says: When it comes to a "switch flipped off" and "fire and a sense of urgency," that is something Sciocsia is supposed to be taking care of. If he is really going to go to the media to deliver the message, while it might make the fan base feel better, it really does speak to how desperate he is getting as this is very much not his style.
The Monkey Says: Since this seems to keep coming up, let's just call it the Astrocalypse. I really don't think the Angels have a chance even with the example of the 2012 A's there for them to follow. The problem is that they are just now finishing up the absolute easiest part of their schedule and they have basically just managed to tread water over the 29-game stretch. It isn't impossible, but the degree of difficulty is exceptionally high.
