  When CJ Wilson unraveled during his trademark one-inning stink fest, one couldn't help but have a sinking feeling about this Angels season. While many fans have already jumped ship, the national news has begun to really converge upon the Halos like sharks around a near-dead whale carcass. The Angels aren't simply bad anymore. They are absolutely, unmitigatedly, no-doubt-about-it awful, horrendous, and terrible.   Wilson's personal catcher, Hank Conger, has continued to look awful on the field. A game after Congnam Styling it up the first base line, he committed three, that's right, three errors. A couple of them contributed to four unearned runs charged against Wilson. But the third one, a crucial seventh inning throw down to third base, looked like it resulted from J.D. Martinez's batter interference. How the umpire's didn't catch it is beyond this Angels blogger.   Side note #1: The Astros are so bad, they don't even know when to duck when the opposing catcher is trying to make a throw.   Side Note #2: Replays show that his helmet clearly gets knocked off by Conger's throw, which should have automatically resulted in an out.   Let's face it, folks. The Angels just aren't a very good team. They can't even beat the Houston Astros.   Astros 7, Angels 6   Game Notes   -- The Angels are terrible   -- Mark Lowe, in his return from the disable list, wasn't so terrible. The pitcher delivered a solid 1 2/3 innings of shutout work, and lowered his ERA to a sparkling 9.00. Oy.   -- The Angels are now only 2 1/2 games ahead of the worst team in baseball. When is Spring Training over?   Halos A-Hole of the Game   Would have to give it to Conger. Without his sloppy play behind the plate, Wilson would've delivered yet another scary-but-good start to win it.
