Raves:

Again not many

Alberto Callaspo and Howie Kendick each has 2 hits.

Hunter hits a HR and drives in his first RBI in what seems like forever.

Weaver pitches 7 innings, allowing three runs and keeps the Angels in the game.


Rants:

Rivera (6-49) and Abreu (5-51) are now an awesome 11 for the past 100 between them, hitting a whopping buck ten. Why Mike do you continue to trot them out there????

Callaspo apparently wants to join in the baserunning fun, committing two STUPID blunders that cut rallies short. Nice Alberto, and just when we were liking your hitting and solid defense.

Mathis is now hitting a buck fifty-five since June 18, with a whopping 5 XBHs in 135 at bats since then. Sandy Koufax might have been able to give Mathis a run for his money at the plate as a hitter, and Koufax was downright terrible. At least Mike is sitting him much more often lately.

Hunter, why can't you deliver like you did in the 7th with RISP?????

How much longer must we sit through the same veteran players doing NOTHING at the plate???? At least get Trumbo and someone else up here after Monday's regular season finale for SLC. The fans are getting bored at the home games!!!!

I'm going to ask this question I've asked a couple of times on the board. Is part of the problem due to this team not knowing what extended losing is like because they've won at least 89 games every year since 2004? and therefore they don't know how to cope with the losing this season and thus that feeds on the struggles and makes it even more difficult to overcome the hitting/running woes?

That the only solution is for the season ending after October 3, at which point they can get away and use that next 4 1/2 months to store up the anger and then take it out on the opposition in 2011? I want some destruction of other teams in 2011. This is getting embarrassing, going 21-35 since July 1!!!!
Love to hear what you think!
