Sometimes baseball can be boring. This doesn't happen very often, but once in a blue moon a game comes along with very little interest to it. Such is the case with last night's Angel's loss. Sure, there was quality pitching and a couple of nice plays defensively, but other than that I can't say the game yieldeed anything of merit. It was just one of those things.

Game Notes

-- Nice to see Erick Aybar have a breakout game. Aybar has been scuffling since signing his extension but have largely been overlooked by the struggles of a certain well paid first baseman. But last night ERick exploded with a 4-4 night including a run and an RBI. Aybar hitting is a huge deal since it strengthen's the bottom of the line-up and gives the Halos another dangerous bat for a change.
-- Anybody else find themselves mildly shocked that when Ryan Langerhans came up in the ninth inning you acutally found yourself clammoring for Vernon Wells? I know, it was weird huh?
-- I was also impressed with Mike Trout almost having a coniption about getting thrown out at first. That kind of fiery passion is essential and has been sorely lacking this year. Everyday this kid shows me more and more why everyone thinks he will be a star.
-- Jordan Walden's rehab tour is also going well. Another scorless inning of work for Jordan bodes well for his return to pressure detail. I can imagine the next step will be to see what he does with a lead in the seventh inning.

Halo A Hole


Someone's gotta get this and Haren did take the loss. He actually pitched pretty well so this is more of a cummulative season award. Where have you gone Danny Boy?
