One more note on the Angels - Orioles game. As everyone knows, Josh Hamilton has been awful so far with the Angels after signing this huge contract. He is continuing his trend from last year at swinging at everything and is batting like .208 or something. And so his manager sat him yesterday against the Orioles. That was dumb. Why was it dumb when Hamilton just went zero for four the previous game with three strikeouts? Because he was sat down when a right-handed pitcher was pitching and that pitcher happened to be Freddy Garcia. Yes, Garcia pitched a wonderful game. But let us not get too giddy here. At this point in his career, Freddy Garcia is a meatball pitcher. If you are expecting him to go six innings without him giving up a hit in the rest of his outings, you are expecting miracles. I would have taken the odds that Josh Hamilton could have jacked one of those meatballs from Garcia. I would have jumped on that chance to give Hamilton an opportunity to crunch some...

  • Hamilton needs help {the entite team needs help inwhitch they cannot get -----needs new pitching coach---batting coach and for sure a different manager}
  • Angels need someone that can pitch, not a pitching coach. Batting coach is not teaching these high paid non-hitting idiots to swing at every pitch out of the strike zone. If anyone still wonders why Harper got his $950K and Trout $500K look at the stats. Trout was a one year wonder boy, defense even sucks this year. Now manager you might be on to something, they have never looked so bad running the bases and have no running game. Oh that's right the million dollar big hitters will hit a home run so they don't need a running game. Yeah right...I think they need a new general manager, this clown does not have a clue how to build a winning team. And the fans need to start BOOING this messed up team. Walk three batters in a row in any other stadium and the clown gets booed off the mound and all the way to the dugout. This is one die hard Angel fan that has seen enough this year, they will finish last!!
