You know I try my absolute best to get too worked up over Downs All-Star snub, but holy beejesus after his awesome performance today how could he have been snubbed so hard?! This is almost as bad as a few years ago when Weaver got snubbed only to be added to the All-Star roster as an injury replacement, which leaves me a little hope that Downs might come in as an injury replacement. I don't need to go mulling over his very All-Star worthy stats again after every single Angels fan and Angels affiliated media person has been spending the past couple days burning his immaculate stats into our brains. After Jered Weaver gave up two consecutive base hits to lead off the 8th inning Downs came in and immediately shut the door on the Indians offense with a quick double play ball. After Downs sealed the door in the 8th to preserve the game it lead to more than just a win for Weaver, it dropped his ERA to 2.13, which is the lowest in the AL since Chris Sale did not pitch today. What a gre...

Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout is scheduled to sit out Monday's game because of a sore right pinkie finger. It's the first time he hasn't started a game since May 7.

After Jered Weaver demonstrated once again his dominance at Progressive Field, now it's Dan Haren's turn to do the same.

CLEVELAND (AP) -- Jered Weaver carried a shutout into the eighth inning, squirming out of a bases-loaded jam in the seventh, to lead the Los Angeles Angels to a 3-0 win over the Cleveland Indians on Monday night.
Weaver (9-1) allowed five singles, struck out two and remained unbeaten in Cleveland. He's 5-0 with 1.52 ERA in eight career starts at Progressive Field. Scott Downs...
What a shocker. Dan Haren stunk up the joint... again. Only this time he admitted after the start that his back was bothering him... still.
I am Jack's complete lack of surprise.
All along, the most probable explanation for his poor performance has been recurrence (assuming they ever actually went away) of his lower back pain. Now Danny will be heading back to Anaheim...
This just in – Angels starter Jered Weaver is good at baseball. This also just in – the Indians offense struggles from time to time.
Sometimes you sit back and watch a game and have to just chalk it up to being dominated by a great pitcher. That was certainly the case last night as Weaver completely befuddled the Tribe for six innings. But in the seventh, with the Indians trailing...
