An April Fool's day edition of Daily Links for the LA Angels including Downs and Morales progressing towards rehab assignments, Hunter blogs about Opening Day, and one headline that I totally fabricated in honor of this "holiday"...
Guess what Angel fans, today we get to experience something that was extremely rare last season. Not only did we get an Opening Day win on the road, we're now in 1st place. Lets take a quick moment to savor that fact....
Ok now, moving on....I realized how brash and arrogant my preview was, throwing out predictions left and right with absolute disregard for my writing integrity. Common sense tells me not to make any more brash predictions so hold on to my integrity, too bad I am not a man of common sense. I need to redeem myself for those prediction, so I'm going to have to continue making irresponsible predictions until I get one right.
Check out the box score here before you read on.
It's the most wonderful time of the year! Opening Day is well upon us, but I can't but express my sheer euphria at most joyous occassion. I don't care how cliche these are, but I present you with my top ten reasons for loving Opening Day.
If the game gets rained out today, I might go postal on somebody.
Game Time: 1:10 PM
Jered Weaver (0-0 0.00 ERA) vs Luke Hochevar (0-0 0.00 ERA)
Broadcast: T.V (FS-W)
I just want to start off this article by congratulating all of the Angel players who made it on the 25 man roster for the season, you've all earned it. One more congratulations to Weaver and Hochevar for receiving the call for Opening Day. Now, with all ass kissing aside it's time to touch on something a tad bit "negative". For us Angel fans it a positive, but for the Royals fans...its far from positive. The starting pitcher for KC is Luke Hochevar, which shows just how absolutely inadequate the Royals starting rotation is shaping up without Greinke. Lets just save the smack talk for the article.
Predictions! It is about time I gets to making mine (otherwise they revoke my blogger license). Since first pitch is just a few hours away, let's not waste anymore time and take a gander at all the prognostications of mine that will probably be used to make me look like an idiot later this year... unless I go back in and edit this post in October. But I'd never do that... as far as you know. Now if I can just find a way to delete files from Google cache and it will be the perfect crime.
Hmmm, this isn't exactly a crystal ball, but I guess it will have to do.
Daily Links for the LA Angels including Arte Moreno talks expectations and finances, Kazmir finishes "strong", a chance to meet the Angels' stars of tomorrow and much more...
Once again, Winning Wednesday leads me down strange roads as I honor a man that I have spent most of the week besmirching while also lavishing praise on a man who will soon be missing a vital internal organ. Who could they be?
OK, I think this is going to be the last week I pay homage to Sheen, but this poster is pretty damn cool.
