Angels v. Rangers

Santana v. McCarthy

So clearly everyone on this board will start hoping I pick the Angels to lose as it seems to hold some charm for them absolutely destroying whoever they happen to be playing. And believe me, if I thought that voodoo magic would work I would pick the Angels to go a perfect 0 and 162. But, I don’t possess those kinds of powers…yet.

When I saw who was pitching in this very odd, and very annoying I might add, mid-week day game my immediate reaction was that Scioscia was testing our young pitching phenom. After all, Ervin Santana has a hard time pitching during the day thus far in his career. His ERA is almost an entire point and a half better when he is NOT pitching during daylight. But, the way the Angels have been hitting the ball the first 2 days, we could be looking at a sweep to open the season.

The ball carries during the day and I think today is the day GA gets his first homer of the year. Vlad will probably be the DH today. That’s a good thing because Shea Hillenbrand looks like he is standing at the plate with blinders on. I would also consider moving Kotchman up a spot as it is fairly evident this kid came to play. I also gotta think Shields and Speier are off limits today.

I think we win this one if Santana can break the daytime curse. Otherwise I think the rangers open up a can. A little birdie mentioned to me that the Rangers win this one 9-4. I agree.
Love to hear what you think!
