Angels ALDS roster scenarios

The Angels have until tomorrow morning to make their ALDS roster decisions. That should be a lot easier to do now that they know who they are facing and finally gotten some clarity on the health statuses of Matt Shoemaker and Josh Hamilton, respectively. With all that in mind, here’s a quick rundown of the Angels and the roster decisions they have to make before the ALDS against...

Boxscore Breakdown #160: Tuned up – Mariners 4, Angels 3

This was supposed to be a nice tune up game for Jered Weaver as he readied himself for Game 1 of the ALDS. Instead, he was the one that got tuned up. In a fitting piece of symmetry, Weaver ended his regular season as he began it, with a middling and mildly concerning loss at the hands of the Mariners. Gone was the velocity spike that Weaver had seen in his last two starts. In those...

Boxscore Breakdown #154: Hector Blantiago – Rangers 12, Angels 3

It was another disaster of a start for Hector Santiago. Or should we start to call him Hector Blantiago? It was so frustrating that I am struggling to put it into words, but sometimes actions speak louder than words… Yeah, that sums it pretty well. Run Expectancy Rundown The starters hit like they were still hungover, but some of the reserves did some things of note. C.J. Cron...

Boxscore Breakdown #145: No cycle for you – Angels 8, Rangers 1

Because the Angels basically have the AL West and the best record in baseball in the bag, the fans are running out of things to care about in these final weeks. Despite it being a farily close game in the early going, the talk was all about Albert Pujols gunning for the cycle. There might not be an accomplishment in baseball I care less about than the cycle. It is utterly meaningless...

Boxscore Breakdown #140: Not making it look easy – Angels 7, Twins 6

Another win for the Angels, but they once again made it look much harder than it had to be. Not to complain too much since they did win and did expand their lead in the AL West, but it sure would be nice to see them have a few nice, comfortable wins against these weak teams. With 22 games left, they are running out of time to convince us they are firing on all cylinders headed into...

Ex-Tiger Brennan Boesch is too young to disappear

I’ve been wrong a lot about Brennan Boesch. I thought he would play a long time for the Tigers. He didn’t. I thought he’d be an established major-league power hitter by now. He isn’t. In fact, as late as last week, when I asked his friend Rick Porcello what he was doing – only to find out Porcello wasn’t sure – Boesch was nothing but a fading memory. But on Tuesday...

Five Days Later, The Batting Dead: Run, everybody, the Yankee Apocalypse has begun

You passed out in the wild party, after Overbay's HR beat Tampa. You wake up in an empty clubhouse, the lockers and showers horribly smeared with chalk and pine tar.  Outside, on the field, a roving horde of Yankees seems to be feeding on something. You climb the dugout steps for a better look. My God, it's the carcass of Joe Girardi! One of them sees you. It's Vernon...

Over the past week, the New York Yankees have played seven games and have committed at least one error in five of them. They also lost four of those five games. Given that the current Yankees (despite maintaining power levels that few expected) do not resemble the well-rounded offensive juggernauts of previous years, pitching and defense are all the more important.A clean game...
