Found November 21, 2011 on Fragile Freddy's:
86-76, 2nd place, 10 GBFragile Freddy’s “Two A Days” series continues today with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.  Each day (except Saturday) I will feature two clubs, one AL club, one NL club, and look back at their season.  For each club I will comment on a key position player and pitcher (generally in a positive tone), their #1 prospect according to Baseball America, note what went right and what went wrong.  I will finish up with a 2012 outlook and finally offer some unsolicited advice sure to be brilliant and insightful.Note that all of these were written over the course of October and early November so recent player moves may not be reflected though trades/free agents tend to be rare until late November.Key Position Player – Peter Bourjos - .271/.327/.438 – Bourjos has had the Dustin Pedroia experience in some respects with his Major League career.  After a disappointing first look in 2010 (.618 OPS) Bourjos had a fine season in 2011 leading the league in triples and showi...
