Yesterday the Angels crushed the Dodgers 10-4. Jeff Mathis, Erick Aybar and Robb Quinlan all homered as Dustin Moseley pitched 6 solid innings giving up 3 runs.


That's the number Kelvim Escobar hit on the radar gun yesterday during his full first start of the spring in a minor league game against the Cubs. Escobar threw 34 pitches and was consistently between 94-96 mph.

"Oh man, I feel good," Escobar said. "I knew I had good velocity, but I never thought I'd be throwing 96."

Again, excellent news! I think if you would have asked any Angels fan in December what they thought about Escobar's role in 2009 most would have said, He'll be a nice addition to the bullpen in August. Escobar's recovery has been nothing short of amazing. If the Angels can get 25 starts out of Kelvim and the currently injured Ervin Santana the starting staff will be very strong.

Bobby Abreu is back from the WBC and is headed back out to left field after playing right for Venezuela. The newcomer appears to be making friends fast and is fitting in well with the Angels.

Torii Hunter enjoys his role as clubhouse leader.

Fangraphs ranks the Angels the 10th best franchise in baseball. It would appear the Angels farm system drags their overall grade down a bit.

Today Los Angeles will take on San Diego with Joe Saunders opposing Cha Seung Baek.
Love to hear what you think!
