Luis Gonzalez has worked out better than anyone could have hoped and in fact our offense has improved over last year's squad. Our pitching has had a number of injuries ranging from key to nagging yet as recently as 2 weeks ago we were sitting in first place in our division.
    There's still a significant amount of responsibility Colletti has to hold in the way his team has performed. Luis Gonzales was a good signing. But this team could have risked a few pieces to get better. Not saying that I would have liked to sell the farm but when you rely on your inexperienced youth to break itself out of its funk, you're asking for too much. This should have been expected.

    This is not our year.
    That's hard to accept.

    Whatever. We haven't scored a run since Saturday, I'm not going to have a fit over any lineup changes. How much worse can we do? Score negative runs?

    Well, this mornings lineup actually but yah, desperation. I like that Pierre got dropped in the lineup but how bad does he have to play to not start? Every other player on the team has gotten a day off or five during a slump. Pierre's entire career could be considered a slump and he still gets to start everyday. I don't get it.

    Tomato in the 3 spot. But like I said, what is nothing from nothing?

    A big thanks to the Dodgers last night! Harang is on my fantasy team.

I love the way he makes adjustments in the course of battle. You can tell the players really enjoy playing for Scioscia.
    So much for my posting strike. It's ridiculous posts like these that make me nuts.

    The players enjoy winning. The Angels are winning because they have the highest BA/OBP/SLG in the AL West and the 2nd lowest ERA. It's that ****ing simple.

    This is just mindblowing in how wrong it is.

    Bottom 6th: LA Angels
    - E. Aybar singled to center
    - R. Willits sacrificed to first, E. Aybar to second
    - C. Figgins popped out to shortstop
    H. Okajima relieved M. Timlin
    - E. Aybar stole third
    - O. Cabrera struck out swinging
    0 runs, 0 hits, 0 errors
    Boston 6, LA Angels 6

    Yeah, that worked like a charm having a .400 OBP guy bunting. Are you honestly trying to tell me that the Angels are winning because their manager gives a guy a high-five for getting a bunt down? That's the difference? Good lord.

    Whenever you feel the need to wax poetic... please don't.

    Are you telling me that it doesn't work every time? :ddoh:

    But seriously, Grady Gump Little is the worst on-field manager I have seen in a long time.

    No, and statistically over the long haul it hurts run production. But that's a whole 'nother story.

    You obviously don't remember Jim Tracy very well.

    (And Juan Pierre is in the 7-spot. We're making progress, folks.)
