OK, I'm going to try something new. I've been looking to add a special feature for each day of the week and thus far haven't come up with anything for Wednesday, until now. I'm calling this "What If Wednesday" a weekly piece in which I will simply throw out a hypothetical for everyone to consider. No analysis or pontificating on my part, just thinking out loud and hopefully generating some discussion. Let's see how it goes, shall we?
This week's What If is all about Brandon Wood and what might happen if, and I almost can't believe I'm saying this, he winds up having a strong Spring Training.
Wood actually good? Is that even possible?
I know the Vernon Wells trade only happened less than two weeks ago, but somehow the Angel newscycle feels as if it is now completely and totally dead. Try as I might, I can't think of anything compelling to pontificate about right now and you know what that means... time for another installment of Monkeying Around! I think this is actually the first Monkeying Around (aka a collection of random, half-baked thoughts) since I re-launched the site, so I guess that should be considered a moral victory on my part. OK, enough screwing around, let's get random!
Pray for Mojo and pray for something newsworthy to happen for the Halos so that I have something to write about.

Who says you can't come home again? At least that is what some Angel fans are hoping for in regards to Vladimir Guerrero, who is still a free agent. The Angels gladly kicked him to the curb after 2009, but it seems that a solid season in Texas could convince them to change their minds. The question is should it? Vlad put up some good numbers in Texas, but had a rough second half to the season as his bat continued to look slow. What is a team to do? Sounds like a great question for this week's poll: should the Angels bring back Vladimir Guerrero?
Time to vote!
Thanks to the trade machinations of Tony Reagins, the Angels now have the distinct honor of having four different natural center fielders on their payroll (with only three on the actual roster, thanks again, Gary Matthews, you useless sack of crap). Due to this stroke of genius(?), one of the hottest topics when Spring Training starts in a few weeks is who will be the Angels' starting center fielder come Opening Day? This is a complicated debate for many, but to me the answer is simple: Peter Bourjos or bust.
Catches like this alone should make sure Peter gets the job.
