    With gary matthews, having a guy that can lead off and clean up is really good.

    Napoli seems like a really hit and miss guy. Either strike outs or home runs.

    I havent watched the angels enough to really judge howie, but guys like willits, kotchman, aybar and izturis have been much more impressive than this guy. It may also have something to do with the difficulty of making spectacular plays at second.

    Here's what I just got on Justin Speier...

    Reliever Justin Speier, out since April 30 because of an intestinal infection, has aborted his minor league rehabilitation assignment and returned to Arizona to build stamina and attempt to rid himself of the symptoms — nausea, lack of appetite, abnormal sleep patterns — that have bothered him for six weeks.

    Speier, who had a 1.69 earned-run average in 15 games in April, threw 1 2/3 innings for Class-A Rancho Cucamonga on Saturday but did not feel well enough to pitch Sunday. Speier threw in the bullpen Monday, but with no chance of his returning in the next 10 days or so, the Angels sent him back to their spring training complex.

    "He's just not up to pitching now," Scioscia said. "He seems to make progress, and then he doesn't rebound the way he'd like. We hope it isn't [a serious] setback."
    Don't look for him anytime soon. :(

    Aybar is the one doing the pinch hitting. He is perfectly capable of starting in 2nd though, to get Howie to wake up.
    I think Howie's gotta play every game slump or not. Much like the Kings youth maturing, Howie needs at bats and confidence from the manager that he will play even if he's slumping. The guy is the JMFJ of youngsters for the Angels and he's going to be a hell of a player. SO lets keep him in there. THat's what I think anyway.

    Slump or not the Angels are playing great baseball and it's fun to watch.

    And about Rex and Phyz comments..... I think Phyz sucks and Rex is great even if he is a TOTAL homer. I don't think you can blame the guy, he's just that fired up loyal rah rah guy who's going to be a homer. So I enjoy Rex for what he is. Phyz just doesn't get it but he's been around long enough it would be a little strange to hear a game without him. You can listen to one Dodger game with Vin Scully calling and you'll hear a cool baseball story in there somewhere or you can listen to Phyz for a whole season and here one cool story. I know, Apples and Oranges. I like Jose Mota and his flava!

    Brutal loss to the worst team in the NL yesterday. Seattle refuses to lose and has picked up 2 games in 2 days. Time to get going again boys!

    Yeah. Seattle is really hot right now. I'm kinda freaked out. Not only that, but we have played 4 games more than Seattle (since they got a bunch of games rained out I think).

    You know how we have the most "dangerous" bullpen? I only think the combo of Speier, Shields, K-Rod is dangerous.

    Moseley is doing pretty good so far, but he's better off as a starting pitcher.

    Then you have Carrasco, Bootcheck, and Oliver. These guys are horrible. If we have a 5+ run lead and they're out there. I know they'll still give up a run or two. And when we have them out in tight situations... like yesterday against the Reds. That's just ridiculous.

    I have yet to watch an entire baseball game this season. Typically I watch every single game once the Ducks season is over (usually around Apr 7) but now I'm in the middle of the season!!!! I've missed so friggen much. :(

    Willits is the man. I'm glad he replaced GA today.

    I love this quote from Grady Little after today's game

    Q : In your estimation are the Angels the best team in baseball?

    GL : This weekend would certainly look like it to tell you the truth. We're glad that they're not in our division. Just put it that way. They're a good club and certainly more than we can handle this weekend.

    LMAO...nice Frenchesque white flag waving comment!
