Angels v. A’s

Weaver v. Gaudin

I feel dirty after that weekend series. I feel like this weekend passed by without a game being played. And that feeling could stem from the fact that what the Angels did this weekend could hardly constitute playing a baseball game. The Red Sox played. Meanwhile, the Angels stood at the side of the road in much the same fashion as many a drunken Bostonian did Monday morning waiting for taxis to take them back to the bars for another session! And much like Red Sox fan the Angels would have been better off had they elected to stay in bed.

But, we have some positives. The first being that we didn’t in fact lose Vlad Guerrero for most of the season with what could easily have been a broken wrist. Hopefully he can return to the DH role for the weekend series against the Mariners. Another positive is the return of Jered Weaver or, as I like to call him, the Weaver that can actually pitch. Jered takes the mound tonight for his first start of the season and it couldn’t have come at a better time as we face off against Oakland A’s.

Normally I wouldn’t expect a high scoring game but I think tonight could be different. I think the Angels are going to break out of their offensive slump, Vlad or no Vlad. This will be the 2nd time in the young season that the Angels will be facing Gaudin and I look for them to get things going offensively. Without Vlad in the lineup I would love to see Kendrick in the 3 spot and Willits in right field. I like Willits and think he should be in the lineup as often as possible. How can you not dig the kids snarl? And who knows, maybe without their offensive juggernaut the Angels may look to be a little more patient at the plate.

The Angels win this one going away.
Love to hear what you think!
