Joe Saunders made a much needed and successful return to the Angels rotation yesterday afternoon. An All-Star in 2008, Saunders had been pitching most of the season with a knot in muscle in his throwing shoulder that did not allow him to pitch with his normal command. By all appearances, Joe is healthy as he stopped the Angels three game skid.

Shane Loux was designated for assignment to make room for Saunders. Mike Scioscia would like to see Loux accept a spot at AAA Salt Lake City and remain with the organization.

Steve Bisheff takes a look at the two types of Angel fans. Any long time user of the message board will know exactly what he's writing about.

One of the Angels top prospects Trevor Reckling has been selected for Team USA.

Vladimir Guerrero became the eighth player to register 1,000 hits as an Angel. Guerrero joins Garret Anderson, Tim Salmon, Darin Erstad, Bobby Grich, Jim Fregosi and Brian Downing.

Reminder, if you had tickets for the April 9th game against Oakland 8/27 is the make up date for the game that was canceled due to the Nick Adenhart tragedy.

8/27 also will be the night the Angels organization recognizes former Angel greats Brian Downing and Chuck Finley with enshrinement into the Angels Hall Of Fame.
