- My predictive powers know no bounds as I correctly nailed Chone Figgins collecting four hits in the game. How the hell he got on board four times and scored no runs even though the man hitting behind him, Maicer Izturis had four RBIs.
- Howie Kendrick is slowly coming around, his solo homer in the seventh inning was an absolute bomb and Kendrick continues to hit the ball authority in general. Some people think that his temporary demotion to Triple-A is what got him going again, personally I think it was the pulling of his Howard's Electronics ads.
- Perhaps my calls to release Justin Speier are not falling on deaf ears. Since I first demanded his head on a stick Speier has gone on to bail out an Angels starter two games in a row and was rewarded with a win last night.
- My only real complaint about Bobby Abreu is that sometimes he seems to forget that his job is to drive in runs, especially when hitting third in the order. Striking out looking with two runners in scoring position in the late innings with your team trailing by two is simply unacceptable. I know he has one of the best eyes in baseball, but there is such a thing as being too patient. Swing the bat, Bobby.
- Joe Saunders was better tonight, only walking two and just one extra-base hit, but he still allowed six runs. What killed him last night was that he just can't close out batters, especially with runners in scoring position. Saunders is just plain skittish when he is in a position to allow runs. You cannot win when you pitch scared.
