Five Questions About … the Twins
We’re going to try to continue a popular feature from the blog last year — ‘Five Questions About …’ Before each series, we’ll try to get a beat writer for the Angels’ next opponent to answer five questions about that team for some quick insight on the upcoming series.
AL West key combos: Who wins more?
One of the biggest storylines in the AL West heading into the 2010 season is the Seattle Mariners’ attempt to ride a pair of aces at the front of their rotation — Felix Hernandez and Cliff Lee — to the top of the division.
Kazmir sharp in first rehab (sorta) start
Left-hander Scott Kazmir’s slight hamstring strain set him back enough this spring that the Angels decided to have him open the season on the DL.
Baseball's Opening Day lies
Opening Day is a con man. An advertisement too good to be true. A promise of a future that will never be. Remember that today, when some 5-foot-7-inch middle infielder hits a pair of home runs, and some declining slugger drives in seven runs. You'll do the math and think, wow, that guy is on pace to hit 320 home runs this year! You'll race to your fantasy league and pick up both of them.
With more power in lineup, Angels hope for best of both worlds
The Angels expect the additional punch in their lineup to complement, not replace, their aggressive baserunning.
Angels-Twins opening series at a glance
Jered Weaver and Scott Baker take the mound on Monday.
Pinning hopes on young pitchers is often more miss than hit
The Dodgers and Angels are using starters ranging in age from 22 to 28 for the 2010 season. Youth at the front of the rotation rarely has led to World Series titles.
