The Angels turned their backs on Hamilton? More like Hamilton turned his back on the Angels. I'm sorry he can't carry a $5 bill without blowing it on booze or drugs.

Ah Jebus!

I have a feeling the Hamilton thing might end up being a bad omen for the Halos the same way the Voynov incident ended up being a bad omen for the Kings.

I think I have made it known here that I've been anti Hamilton in a Angels uniform since day one, and while I get why some people will sympathize for him, I can't find it in me to feel sorry for him. Josh Hamilton has had so many breaks in life that most drug addicts living on the street would die for, and time and time again he's thrown it away because I get the feeling he's been raised to be a arrogant jock. I mean he makes 20 million a year, like he seriously can't man up to pay someone to keep him sober for 9 months out of the year? You know at some point he's going to name drop Jesus Christ in between one of his benders.

God I can't stand this guy! I can see why Texas grew tired of him, and eventually just quit on him.

Great foresight Arte Moreno that you gave numerous bomb contracts before you realized that the best player in baseball had playing in your own organization for years already.

While Trout is one the most humble guys you will ever meet, you got to figure at some point he will gain enough confidence in himself to question why he's surrounded by such a mess.

Hamilton will get back to his old ways and start batting 300 with 30 homers. That will teach the Angels for paying his salary while on another team.

Pujols needs to be moved down the batting order until he gets his batting average back up. The most annoying thing about Guby on the broadcast is that he acts like Pujols is the same hitter that he was in St. Louis.

Truthfully, I don't understand the outfield logjam. I know Joyce got hurt, but he sucked anyway. The point of baseball is to have consistent playing time. Players need to see the pitches on a daily basis. Obviously, Trout is playing every single game. But making Calhoun, DeJesus, Murphy, and Victorino alternate playing time.. are you kidding me?

Hell, I think it was Saturday.. Calhoun had 2 hits (one of them a solo HR) against the Dodgers. Then Scioscia does what he typically does and proceeds to make him sit the following game. Smart management, as usual. :rant:

Having Calhoun sit vs Kershaw is understandable. Otherwise, he has to play every game. The rest are a pu-pu platter of bleech.
If Cron didn't suck at 1st base, he'd get more time. That would help a lot.

And all of a sudden the bullpen is giving up gopher balls every game.

I'd fire the hitting coach because I actually yearn for the days of Mickey Hatcher...which is odd because I hated his 'hacker' approach.

Oh Hell - Fire the entire staff...because Scioscia has lost his edge in his post game meal.
