Time to shift to the Kings and Lakers.
What's OrangePuck's excuse now for Vlad's annual playoffs suckage? Lack of "protection?" LMAO.
Look at the batting percentage for our 3-4-5 guys. Absolutely amazing. The only problem was, they were hitting singles and not homeruns. So it didn't help when those 3 got on base, and everyone from 6, 7, 8, 9, 1, 2 were pathetic as hell. Plus, keep in mind that by the time Tex and/or Vlad got on base, it was already 2 outs most of the time because of Figgins and Anderson.
Just frustrating all around when those same people contributed all season long. I've never seen that many stranded runners on base. This doesn't even happen in the regular season because we didn't get on base twice as much as we did in the playoffs. Had the team had some hitting sense, we would win every game by 10+ runs against this Red Sox team.
I still can't believe what happened. This is truly unacceptable.
Aybar was just pathetic in every aspect of the game this series. I guess Izturis getting hurt was a bigger blow then we all originally thought. Wood has got to be the starting SS next year
Unless they are full of it, didn't the announcers say that Aybar was the best bunter the Angels had? Also, the pitch he got to bunt was a very well placed pitch, it could have gone foul but either way it was a hard pitch to bunt.
Moderators, I think this thread can be closed now :wootrock:
