The Los Angeles Angels haven’t been very good this season.

Even after picking up two of three wins over the New York Yankees this week, they’re 57-74, fourth in the AL West and hopeless of making the playoffs this year.

Despite having Mike Trout and Shohei Ohtani on the roster, the Angels don’t have as many sell-out crowds as one might think.

“43,555 here tonight in Anaheim. Angels’ 7th sale of the year,” tweeted Bryan Hoch of, who covers the Yankees as a beat writer for the league’s official website, on Wednesday.

You can say with confidence that the Angels needed help filling their stadium.

The Yankees gave the Angels a little boost

The Yankees, being the most popular franchise in MLB, helped them get over the hump to fill those empty seats.

During games, you could almost fear the roaring crowd on every play that favored the Yankees.

For a few moments it looked like they were the home club.

The Angels, as long as they have Trout and Ohtani, should be able to attract fans to the stadium.

However, if the team is not competitive or fighting for anything, why would the seats be full in all home games?

Yes, fans love good star-level players, but there’s nothing more thrilling and thrilling for them than being part of a playoff push.

It hasn’t happened for a long time.

The organization has a lot of work to do to put a competitive roster on the field: pitching needs to be addressed, some good players need to get healthy, and the Angels will need to do a better job developing their own contributors.
