Angels v. Mariners

Colon v. Ramirez

You read that right. Tonight marks the return of former Cy Young award winner Bartolo Colon to a major league pitching mound. Coming off of last night’s much needed win, Colon will look to keep things going in this second of a 3 game series. I don’t know much about Colon and how he has progressed from the his off season shoulder rehabilitation program. But, all indications are that he is strong and throwing hard. Obviously, one start can not begin to answer all the lingering questions in the back of Halo fans minds; has he still got the goods? Can he lead us into the playoffs? Can he be the Bartolo of old? But, a strong showing tonight should go a long way towards building back the confidence this team obviously lost on its disastrous road trip east.

And the Angels are indeed coning off of a big win last night where they almost scored as many runs as they did in the 9 games played on the road trip. Vlad was back in the lineup after being beaned in the hand by Josh Beckett and he only had his best night of the young season, coming up only a triple shy of hitting for the cycle. My only regret was that I kept Vlad out of my fantasy league team. Oh well, there is always tonight.

If Colon can give them 5 strong innings I look to the Angels to build on that momentum and lay another butt whupping on the M’s. My only other regret is that Lackey won’t take the mound in this series because I am dying to see that bum Jose Guillen even think about rushing out to Big John. My only other gripe is that Hillenbrand will probably get another shot in the lineup tonight after having one of the luckiest 2-hit-2RBI nights in baseball history! Okay, maybe a tad overstated.

Anyway, I like the Angels to continue their strong play in tonight’s game.
I see GA’s bat coming to life and here’s to Bartolo Colon to go 5 and pick up the win
Love to hear what you think!
