Well, here we are to start the season off, once again at 1-3. The Angels MUST win two game series, we can't risk going home 2-4 or 1-5, we need to be at .500 if we want to keep up with a Rangers team red hot out of the gate. Once again, these bullpen atrocities are starting the team off on the wrong foot. Despite the back to back to back bullpen blunders, there are a few things that one could get excited about regarding the Angels. For one, all that talk about Howie Kendrick "finding himself" seem to be true, and he's looking like that batting champ we were all promised. Either he's gotten off to a very hot start, or he's finding his groove, lets just hope its the latter. The outfield is looking as spectacular as we could have hoped, save for the game saving catch Wells missed on Sunday. Wells isn't to blame though, Fraudney shouldn't have put the team in such a sensitive situation. Lets just pray that these bright spots continue to shine, we're definitely going to need to bring our A++ game to face this completely new and improved Rays.
