Santana v. Lee

I am generally not a pessimist and when it comes to the Angels I generally take a very constructive and unbiased view of the team’s chances. All of that could change after this 3 game series with the Indians. 2 losses or more against the Tribe, coupled with that disastrous series against the White Sox last weekend, and I may join the dark side and start bemoaning Stoneman and calling for Hatcher’s resignation. I know it’s early in the season but with injuries beginning to mount the pressure is on to stay competitive. And this series should be a good barometer for where this Angels team is. The Indians have been very good in a very tough division and they are responsible for sending the Angels into their last tailspin of mediocrity.

On the mound tonight for the Halos is the always evolving Ervin Santana. Statistics would suggest that tonight should be a game in which Ervin should shine. It’s a night game and he is at home. If Santana struggles tonight then all bets are off and the Angels could struggle throughout the game. As we ALL KNOW, the Angels need the rotation to keep it close. Cliff Lee has only made one start so far this year and we should all hope he looks like he did in that start when he gave up 5 runs in 6 innings.

This team will need to continue to be patient at the plate and play better defense. The Indians are a good team. We should be better.

If the guys in front of Vlad can get on at a good pace we should win this on. I put my trust in Matthews and Willits.

Angels win
Love to hear what you think!

Just wanted to let the General know that Troy Glaus is still kicking ass. At least we have a 3b that can barely hit his weight.
