The Angels return home to the "Big A" after a tough 6-4 road trip through Baltimore, Cleveland and Toronto. A winning record despite a mini offensive slump and a disastrous starts from rookies Sean O'Sullivan, Trevor Bell and unfortunately one from veteran John Lackey.

O'Sullivan's starts were so poor that he was sent back to AAA Salt Lake City after his start in Toronto. Rafael Rodriguez was recalled.

Even with Joe Saunders looking like he will be activated this week from the disabled list the Angels are still in search of a 5th starter and it makes a fan wonder why GM Tony Reagins was not more active this off-season and at the trade deadline in regards to signing or trading for a veteran pitcher.

Former Angel, Jon Garland has cleared waivers and could be acquired but it appears the Angels have no interest in upgrading the pitching staff. Hopefully they can hold on for the final month of the season and hold off Texas. It would seem Halos management is playing with fire if another injury hits their rotation.

According to Baseball Prospectus, the Angels and Bobby Abreu have initiated talks on a contract extension.

Mike Napoli and Jeff Mathis laugh off critics.
