THE SEASON THAT STAYED TOO LONG

By Tom Anderson, AngelsWin.com Contributor -  Like a visit from your Uncle Charley, scheduled for a couple of weeks, now turned into months.  The refrigerator cleaned of beer, the TV clicker worn to black, your car without gas, and cigarette butts now littering your lawn.  This season has stayed too long.

  Jered Weaver has rounded back into form as the season has worn on, but tonight, he didn't quite have his sharpest command.

Trumbo Home Run Powers Angels Passed Rangers

I have given up hope that the Angels will finish the season in the bottom ten record-wise. So with that said; win all the games Angels. Win them all.
