Los Angeles Angels start a seven game road trip to Seattle and Kansas City with a new starting pitcher in tow. Scott Kazmir acquired on Friday from the Tampa Bay Rays for minor leaguers Alexander Torres, Matthew Sweeney and a player to be named later will make his Angels debut Wednesday against Mariners' ace Felix Hernandez.
Kazmir told the LA Times Bill Shaikin that the admires the Angels commitment to winning.
Kendry Morales may have had too many plate appearances over the last two seasons to qualify as a rookie, so maybe we should be talking about him for MVP ? Morales has certainly taken his game to a new level.
It's been a good first season for the Angels draft picks.
Let the speculation begin on who the Angels will call up when the rosters expand Tuesday, September 1.
On Sunday Aug. 30th, John Lackey won his 100th game as an Angel in front of the home crowd.
Lackey joins and elite club of only five others to have 100 wins as Angels. Nolan Ryan, Frank Tanana, Chuck Finley and Mike Witt.
