Angels self-destruction update.

So last night the Angels Angels of Anaheimels blew chance after chance to beat the Blue Jays and lost it in the 10th, leading to clubhouse fights and yelling.

You might think that, today, they'd come out firing, determined to make it all better, right?

LOS ANGELES -- The Dodgers enjoyed a nine-run sixth inning and rolled to a 16-2 win over the Angels in front of a sellout crowd of 55,655 on Friday night to open the Interleague series.

The sixth-inning outburst was the Dodgers' biggest frame since May 6, 2005, and sent the Angels to a season-high eight games under .500.

The Dodgers (you know, the REAL Los Angeles team) scored runs in every inning but the first, and of interest to Oakland fans will be the guy who did most of the hitting:

Dodgers left fielder Andre Ethier went 5-for-5 with a home run.

But this isn't a time to harp on players we once owned who are now owning for other teams, now is the time to see what a Darin Erstad peptalk does for our division rivals:

The Dodgers blew the game open with nine runs in the bottom of the sixth when they batted around and then some, sending 15 men to the plate. Furcal, Garciaparra, J.D. Drew and Kent all reached base twice in the inning.

Choice.

So what do they have to say about this over at Halos Heaven?

Sigh. I told my friends that last night's game was a defining moment for this whole season. As much as i didnt want to believe it, tonight helped to prove my point.

This is some sorry ass shit.

i blame gene autry for starting this whole damn thing.

That last one is the funniest thing I've ever seen on HH.

Hail Oakland.
