The August 24th, 2012 edition of daily news for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim including Pujols day-to-day with a calf injury, Wilson offers no excuses for his struggles, Angels rank 4th in ESPN's MLB Future Power Rankings and much more...
The Monkey Says: He'll hopefully be back in the lineup some time this series, but probably at DH for a few games. Bullet dodged.
The Monkey Says: This was written before he melted down again last night. Suffice it to say he did not "take the hammer to the ant."
The Monkey Says: And I am enjoying every single minute of it.
The Monkey Says: That is nice and all but I am more concerned that they are also in fourth place for the final AL Wild Card standings.
The Monkey Says: I have no qualms about that ranking. The uniforms are sharp and clean, but not flashy.
The Monkey Says: That would certainly explain his struggles at the plate, well, that and his sporadic playing time. However, hold on, let me put on my fake doctor's coat, I have a hard time believing a few days of rest is going to make everything all better.
The Monkey Says: JeDi never outright guarantees that Scioscia will be back, but the fact that he, a man once described as the real Chris Traeger, got "perturbed" by the line of questioning certainly seems to indicate that he is not considering firing Scioscia at any point. Nor should he, in my opinion.
The Monkey Says: Everyone make sure Scioscia never sees this. It is all the evidence he needs to force a trade to re-acquire Jeff Mathis.
The Monkey Says: In which, a professional ballplayer in his early twenties uses the phrase "Holy cow!"

I am having a teensy-weensy bit of trouble figuring out how a system that STILL has Paul McAnulty bumping around in it has what could be called a future. And how anything with Jim Bowden's name on it can really be taken seriously. And why ESPN should be listened to at all about the team when it has no beat writer following the Angels (give us back the Polish guy, I greatly enjoyed his movie references!).
Other than that, it's probably a fine article (I am not an Insider and did not stay at a Holiday Inn hotel last night. I did cancel my MLB.tv subscription, though. Couldn't get Angels home OR road games even though I'm 55 miles form the stadium. It's a damn PAY service! How can it seriously conflict with CABLE service??).
Didn't KLaw and Karabell talk about the "framing stat" a while back? Seems to me the number helps one pitch every other game. Maybe. That's not Greinke's problem. Not buying it.
I love the uniforms now but my earlier favorites were the mid-90's flannel look that came in about the same time as JT Snow and later replaced by the disastrous periwinkle monstrosities. If Disney hadn't instituted those things THEY would be wearing the World Series ring right now. OK, Dave Hollins didn't help, either.
@Rick K. I love the '90s unis as well. I wear the hat from that uniform all the time.
@monkeywithahalo I'd still be wearing my hat, to, but a crow flew over and took a dump on it. Darn near broke my neck. Let me tell you, there's no getting that..."stuff"...out of a wool hat. I've been rooting for West Nile Virus ever since.
