Chatwood gets a second chance to make a first impression and hopefully keep the Angels' win streak alive and well.
The Angels fought through the wind and the rain to get Weaver his fourth win of the year. The bullpen came through, although Fraudney continued his high wire act before giving way to the steady hand of new closer Jordan Walden, allowing the Angels a nice win to start the road trip. Did I mention that the game was played in what might be best descrbed as the Arctic Circle? I caught the first three innings on the radio where they could not stop talking about how cold it was. Then the TV guys spent a good portion of the telecast complaining about the bitter chill in the air. So apparently, it was less than ideal to play baseball. I can't imagine playing in 34 degree weather in the pouring rain, but at least I was comfortable on my couch.

The Halos head back out on the road to face the Chicago White Sox, and hopefully do it without going into extra innings for a change.no comments
Another week, another set of changes strikes Monkey With a Halo. But as always, the changes are for nothing but good.
The biggest piece of news is that we have brought on board another writer to help out. And that new writer is (drumroll)... Jonathan Lyons! For now, Jonathan will be handling game previews and recaps on Friday. He'll be introducing himself later on today, so be sure to give him a warm welcome.
Also, as you might have already noticed, we have introduced a fantastic new commenting system that should make life a whole lot better around here. There are a few hoops you have to jump through to get started, but nothing too bad. Details are after the jump...
Please make sure your seat belt is securely fastened and keep all arms and legs inside the blog.
Daily Links for the LA Angels including Aybar should be back Monday, Weaver and Haren join some impressive company, Abreu getting his southpaw groove back and much more...no comments
His extra innings single (woo!) was a good start last night, but Vernon Wells still has a long way to go before we consider him fixed. Here are ten "helpful" suggestions that should get the embattled slugger back on track.
This press conference going to be awkward.
Now that we've passed the all important... umm, 2/27th mark of the season, let's take a look at what early developments we should actually buy into and which ones we should sell high on before they come crashing back to earth.
If only playing the stock market were this easy.
