I hope you had a Good Easter Sunday because the Angels sure didn't. For the second time in 24 hours, the Angels allowed themselves to be shutout by a pitcher who had been struggling mightily before facing the pathetic Angel lineup.
I did a chat over at a Red Sox blog last night and as I signed off, I said the only way this series could get worse for the Angels is if they get shutdown by John Lackey today. Well, I guess I jinxed it because that is precisely what happened today. Six hits, one walk, no extra bases and no serious threat ever mounted against the traitor that is Big John. It didn't even help that Mike Scioscia finally tried a drastic reshuffling of the lineup. I also expect he would have tried for some more aggressive baserunning too, but that would actually require baserunners. I don't even know where Sosh goes to try and fix this epic offensive slump, I just know that he should consider every option at his disposal.
