GAME 76 - ANGELS AT RANGERS
ARLINGTON, Texas -- Only a few days ago, Bengie Molina proclaimed ``I am not a home run hitter,'' explaining why had hit none all season.
He came close last weekend in Milwaukee, when Brewers center fielder Jeffrey Hammonds pulled one back into the park to rob him. But Wednesday night, Molina got one, and it was worth the wait for the Angels catcher.
Molina's two-out, three-run homer to right field in the eighth inning off Texas Rangers reliever John Rocker tied the game at 6 and Garret Anderson's two-out, RBI double in the ninth gave the Angels a 7-6 win in front of 29,726 at The Ballpark in Arlington, snapping the Rangers' eight-game winning streak.
With the win, the Angels moved back into second place in the American League West, a half-game ahead of Oakland and 3 1/2 games behind first-place Seattle.
Molina's first home run since the final game of th...

Let's face it, this whole Josh Hamilton thing isn't working out so great. He's easily the most disappointing and most frustrating player on an incredibly disappointing and frustrating team. The problem is that Josh isn't going anywhere. We fans are just going to have to make the best of it, so to prepare you for what is sure to be a tough emotional journey, we present...

As the halfway point of the season approaches, I think it’s fair to say most Angels' fans are wishing they could start it all over again. 11 games out in fourth place in the division really isn’t what we were expecting. On that note, here are five other thoughts that have been rattling around my brain, which I really didn’t expect to be having now, or at any point.

GAME 75 - ANGELS AT RANGERS
ARLINGTON, Texas -- It's been a Jekyll-and-Hyde season for Angels pitcher Scott Schoeneweis, and Tuesday night at The Ballpark in Arlington, Mr. Hyde showed up again.
Schoeneweis gave up eight runs in only 4 2/3 innings and the Angels dropped their third game in the past two days...
This game was set up to be an outright disaster for the Angels. Tommy Hanson was scratched from the start at the last minute when his forearm tightened up during warm-ups. Howie Kendrick was given the day off. Peter Bourjos' thumb wasn't healed enough for him to play. Worst of all, Josh Hamilton was back batting fifth... against a lefty!
Sure enough Billy Buckner, pitching...
Jerry Dipoto may not be willing to say whether or not the Angels are going to be buyers or sellers at the trade deadline, but we're still pretty convinced that they will wind up selling at some point. Sorry, but that is just how things look and JeDi's doublespeak isn't going to discourage us from continuing on with our series of evaluating each of the Angels' trade...
