The Angels 2012 season ended not with a bang but with a shutout

Final Score in Seattle: Angels 0 Mariners 12

The final game of the Halos' 2012 baseball season saw the team get shutout for the first time since mid-August.

The 73rd loss versus 89 wins saw Angels pitching allow a dozen runs in the historically asterisk-worthy final game of the nineteen-seaosn four team American League Western Division. It ended with a Mark Trumbo strikeout two hours and 57 minutes after the first pitch.

Mike Trout was caught stealing and thrown out at home plate on an outfield assist, preventing his 50th stolen base and 130th run scored. Those nice round numbers would not be his, but perhaps set the bar just a little higher for all who come in his wake.

Trout's exciting rookie campaign began with a callup from Triple A after Bobby Abreu was designated for assignment. It ended with a Talk Radio civil war between idiots who privilege RBIs over Runs Scored as a category to be privileged in determining individual greatness and intelligent baseball fans who understand defensive contributions and thorough statistical analysis reveal true greatness.
