Wayne Randazzo didn't hold back during his roasting of MLB during a Mike Trout at-bat

What’s Wayne Randazzo up to these days? You were probably reminded he is no longer calling the New York Mets on the radio this past Friday when you tuned into it with the AppleTV game on mute. He’s still with the Los Angeles Angels and hurling some harsh truths.

Randazzo didn’t hold back during this Mike Trout at-bat. The brutal honesty of the problems facing MLB right now boiled over when the league decided to retroactively end the on-base streak of Angels’ first baseman Nolan Schanuel.

Schanuel went into Friday’s game with a 35-game on-base streak. However, a scoring change ruled an infield single from March 30 as an error instead. If only the rest of us had access to this power of changing the past.

Former Mets broadcaster Wayne Randazzo had enough

For those curious, here is the play in question:

The hard part of it is, Schanuel did actually technically reach base but because it is an error, it doesn’t count the same way as a hit or a walk might. As far as the record books are concerned, the streak is now over.

Most egregious is the late change a week after it happened. If it was ruled a hit, let it be a hit. The outcome of the game wasn't changed.

Randazzo blasting other ongoing problems with MLB in a “tell us how you really feel” moment helped the former Mets broadcaster go viral in ways he probably wasn’t hoping to. We’re all feeling the way Randazzo does even without any care of how the Angels players perform. The ongoing Shohei Ohtani scandal, the mess of the Oakland Athletics, and the target the injured list has on young star pitchers is making this a game where we need every positive story we can get.

Schanuel’s on-base streak to begin his career was a rarely positive storyline fans could have gravitated toward. Instead, it’s another bruise on the game. Schanuel was closing in on Alvin Davis' 47-game streak from 1984. Although not a well-known streak, it's certainly one that seems tough to beat. We won't get our chance with this miscarriage of MLB scoring.
