    Well that's it for playoff hopes. Howie strikes out in the 9th with Bourjos on 1st. Texas wins, 4-3 to put the Angels out of Wild Card contention.

    As for next year, they need to do a small amount of shopping. Weaver, Haren and Santana are their big 3 starters. #4/#5 are always up in the air but between Williams, Chatwood and Pineiro or whomever they might acquire in the winter they should be fine for the rotation. I was pleasantly surprised that Callaspo came on this year, quietly flirting with a .300 average. A few hits in the remaining two games and he could finish in the low .290's. Wells was a disappointment and I'm sure he's aware of it, but I suspect he'll be much better next year, I just can't fathom a guy like him tanking after the success he had in TO. Torii is something of a question mark as far as whether he'll retire or come back. He's already said he won't go to another team. Bobby Abreu might be done but who knows.

    I'd really like to see the Angels go after a catcher who can hit at least .220 and not strike out so much. Everyone always goes on about how Mathis is a great positional catcher but he's not so good that I'm satisfied with him hitting .180-something every dang year. Hell, even if he put the ball into play and moved his runners up I'd be happy but he strikes out or pops up way too much.

    Wells is 33/34. He won't get better, he'll get worse.

    3 more years, 63 more millions. Jesus.
    Imagine, could have kept Napoli instead and had better production. and thrown in Weaver's salary as incentive. lol

    Torii is about done. His speed is going, and his K's are up. If he wants to be a part timer paid at that level, why not. he's a solid citizen.

    Surpised no one posted this yet, but Tony Reagins has stepped down as the Angels' GM. Good offseason move already! Now, let's clean house with some of Mike S's crew. If the Angels don't make the playoffs next year, I think big Mike is the next on the chopping block (if not already in the works)

    Mike Napoli's performance in the playoff's is confirmation that the Napoli to Toronto trade for Vernon 'Worthless' Wells was one of the most bone-headed trades in Angels history.

    If the Rangers win the west I expect them to be back in the fall classic.
    I should of said they will win the fall classic!

    Agreed. Worst trade ever. But then I also can't help but look at the Blue Jays. How stupid are they to trade Napoli as well? I wonder if their fans are pissed off too. Then again... we're talking about the Blue Jays here... what fans do they really have?

    While it seems like most of you are allergic to the "like" button, I just want to personally say thanks for looking anyway.
