Where did I say that he played horribly because of Gary Matthews Jr not playing? Nowhere. I said he was injured and had no protection thanks to Garret Anderson being half blind. My whole point is about lineup protection and he didn't have any in 04 and 07.
This is why I left the discussion the first time we had it. You have a habit of taking things out of context and I just didn't care to get into it. Can you honestly say that you know the Angels inside and out so well that you can make the statements that you make with absolute certainty? Or are you a fantasy baseball playing stat geek who makes up his mind by looking at statistics?
