The Angels are back at .500!
Woohooooo!!!! Thank you Ervin Santana!
You know it really does not look like his two-faced Dr. Jekyll Mr.Hyde flip flop act on the mound is going to come to an end anytime soon, here's to hoping top pitching prospect Garrett Richards can deal as hard as we need him too and bump Santana out of the order. Anyone feeling a case of Scioscia's famous mystery DL appearance for Santana yet?
The Rangers have been getting pounded hard by mediocre teams the past week (Angels not included.....or are they?), I mean for chrissakes these guys almost got no-hit by the lowly A's last night!!
This is the perfect time to cut some games off the standings, sure the Angels should be 2 games back today instead of the 4, but we'll have to take whatever we can get and hope a series win against the Mariners can bring the Angels to closing that deficit.
No, last night would have been the perfect time to cut some games off the standings. But they didn't. I think I'm about done hoping (against hope) that Mr. Santana will ever be worth his weight. If only he were at .500, maybe we could talk some sucker into taking him off our hands. There's a subject worth talking about instead of who the '13 catcher will be (since it's an almost league-wide push), who will take Big Erv's place in the rotation. Not in '13 but by, like, JULY. I just can't take his up and down-ness any more.
Please, Garrett, PLEASE have a third pitch. Just a usable third pitch is all I ask for.
