I love playing against our rivals. I wish MLB changed and have divs play each other a lot more during the season. Anyway, tonight was a great game to watch with a lot of good things happening for the Halos (some nice breaks too)!
Now, it's give Haren his third win as an Angel and win the series against Seattle. Man, I need to go to Safeco next season. The ballpark looks awesome.

Like 18-19 times isn't enough? If anything, there should be less divisional games. IMO, there's only one way to fix this: Two more AL teams so that each league has four four-team divisions.

They also need to fix the schedules for the interleague play as well.

It makes it completely unbalanced and that annoys me.
The same goes for teams in the same league. Why do the Rangers play the Orioles like 12 times and the Angels only play them 6? Granted, the Angels lost all 6 games against the Orioles this year but that's not the point.

It's also not fair for the Angels that they play the Yankees more than six or seven times. Usually, you only face non-divisional teams within the same league in just two series (one at home and one on the road). I guess that's how they make up for the four-team division AL West, but why every year? Why don't they rotate the AL Central and AL East?

Very good game tonight with a 4-2 win and taking the series. Next up, Oakland who have been losing as of late. A good time for the Angels to make some ground in the Al West.
Matsui is coming alive lately and that is a good thing. Callaspo brings in his 10th homer of the year, and I'm happy with the trade so far. There are a lot of Angels fans that want someone else at 3rd, but I think he will work out well going forward.
I will miss two of the games against the A's, but I will be watching on Friday night tho.

I really like J Walden as a pitcher. He was great tonight and I rather see him as the closer for the Halos once Walden gets some more exp/control under his belt.
Good win tonight with very nice pitching from Bell and the BP. And, the runs came in to give Trevor the win as well

Baseball is finally over. Tonight they play real sports when college football begins. Then in a week in a half baseball will be forgotten when the NFL begins its season.
It has been a long long summer and now finally sports begin. My son will play fall baseball and that is all I need of baseball.

All I have to say is that Regins has a lot to prove to me this off-season.
OF- Get Crawford. Won't happen if the Yanks want him but it would be a great step in the right direction. He'd work well in Scioscias system, would be a catalyst and would make our OF elite. If not, Bourjos is OK but as a defensive specialist, we can't afford any other positions that don't carry their weight with the bat, coughmathiscough. I doubt we can get a lot for Rivera but I wouldn't mind him being traded for a BP arm. Then again, 2011 is a contract year for him and if he can improve with the bat, he'd be passable. Abreu needs to never set foot on the grass again, DH only and by that I mean in the 1st or second spot not 3rd.
IF- 1b solid
2b, ss, 3rd - There was a lot of hope for some of the players in this group but they haven't for the most part lived up to expectations. A little creativity on the part of Regins is needed because we will be dissappointed with the status quo moving forward. Izturis is guaranteed to miss half a season, Kendrick is adequate but there is some bloom coming off the rose. I still have a lot of faith in Aybar, just not as a leadoff. Callaspo is fine at 3rd but we might be better off with him at 2nd. i'd like to see what any combination of Izturis, Kendrick, Callaspo, Amarista (AAA) and pitching prospects could bring either for 3b.
C- What a friggen mess. Napoli doesn't meet Mike's standards for an everyday catcher. He won't get but a handul of starts at 1b and DH is hopefully taken by Abreu. He projects to 33 hrs with 600 abs and is our only other bopper besides Kendry but he seems to be one the top candidates to be traded because he doesn't fit neatly into any hole. I've given Mathis all the rope I'm going to give him. I don't think Conger is Scioscia-ready.
P- SP is in decent shape Hopefully Kazmir can find a way to be a fairly reliable 5th starter
BP - Oh my. Not even sure what to ask for.
Regins... your move.
