The Los Angeles Angels continue to find ways to disappoint their fanbase as the team flounders despite a superstar performance from Shohei Ohtani. The loss came at home against the Seattle Mariners, a division rival. Ohtani accounted for 4 RBI's in the game, but was unable to will the rest of his team to victory.

Rhett Bollinger posted the astounding numbers that Ohtani put up in the game, which somehow resulted in an Angels loss.

Shohei Ohtani with a two-run homer and he's 4-for-5 with a homer, a triple and four RBIs today. #Angels down 11-7. It's his 27th homer of the year. https://t.co/yTyz0lCfbu

Shohei Ohtani is having yet another historic season. Being an All-Star as both a starting pitcher and in the batters box is almost unheard of. This reminded everybody of what is becoming an evergreen tweet about Ohtani and the Los Angeles Angels.

It is difficult for MLB fans to stomach seeing one of the game's brightest stars lose on such a consistent basis.

It is starting to seem inevitable that if Ohtani wants to win a World Series championship, it might not be in Los Angeles.

@RhettBollinger He needs to request a trade

After watching the same thing happen to Mike Trout over the last decade, even Angels fans will understand if he wants to leave.

That’s it. If you love someone enough, set them free. We cannot be the Ohtani prison anymore. twitter.com/rhettbollinger…

This is becoming a troubling trend for the Angels. While they have dealt with a lot of injuries this season, the team has never proven that it can win.

These kind of Tweets really are becoming insanely common. twitter.com/rhettbollinger…

This is a story that the MLB has already seen play out in Anaheim, and nobody wants to see it again.

How do the #Angels have two generational players and can’t win? twitter.com/rhettbollinger…

Shohei Ohtani might be the most talented individual in the entire MLB, but baseball is the ultimate team sport. No individual player can constantly will their team to victories, as this game proves.

@RhettBollinger Starting to be a sad and familiar pattern for the @Angels. Shotime shines, but Halos fall. Get this dude some help, especially some bats in the bottom of the order and a better bullpen.
@RhettBollinger Bro can go 6-6 with 15 RBIs pitching a 20k gem and the Angels will still lose

Shoehi Ohtani was absolutely dominant in the game, but the Seattle Mariners still came away with the victory. It is hard not to feel for Ohtani as his prime years go by without a playoff appearance.

And still losing, he deserves better twitter.com/RhettBollinger…

If the Los Angeles Angels cannot prove to Shohei Ohtani that they can be a winning team, he could leave in free agency.

Shohei Ohtani will have no shortage of suitors if he chooses to leave the Los Angeles Angels

Shohei Ohtani is a player without a peer, which will reflect on his next contract. His deal will be reflective of the fact that he is a top pitcher and a bonefide offensive weapon.

However, that will not happen until the end of next season at the earliest. For now, the Angels will try to build a team capable of winning to entice him to stay in Anaheim.
