I'd be more upset about tonight's Angel loss if it wasn't just so damned predictable. Everything that we all joked about happening before the game in tongue-in-cheek manner ended up not being such a joke after all once everything was said and done. It is all just so very frustrating.
When we saw that the A's were giving Guillermo Moscoso his first career start tonight, who amongst didn't make some sort of comment about how the Halos always seem to make these anonymous rookies look like Cy Young winners? Surely that is just some sort of fluke based on anecdotal evidence, right?
Yeah, not so much. Sure enough, Moscoso carved up the Angels over six innings of work, allowing just three hits and zero runs and surprising exactly zero Angel fans who had been hoping that their witty quips would prove unfounded.
And wouldn't it be so funny too if Dan Haren once again failed to get run support since the Angels never ever give him run support?
Not so funny now, eh? The fact that Haren had his worst start of the season, allowing five runs over six innings really ended up not mattering at all since the Angels only managed to plate 1 run. Again, I am Jack's complete lack of surprise.
