    Come on guys. That play was clearly A-Rod's fault!

    Stoneman seems to have excellent job security. What are the chances he'll get fired this off-season? I'd say they were pretty low despite what all Angel fans seem to want.

    Aww, wittle Angel fan, don't be all bitter because your team got swept. The Red Sox were a better team all season. You weren't really thinking the luck of 2002 was going to strike again did you?

    I doubt he gets fired and for the life of me I don't understand why. Moreno seems to be committed to him for some inexplicable reason. Stoneman has failed so many times but he has had a few victories so to speak (Guerrero, Jered Weaver, wait I think that's it). Seriously, how difficult is it to obtain a decent DH? Not to hard damnit. We won the World Series with Brad Fullmer at DH. You mean to tell me Stoneman can't find someone comparable?

    For years he refused to trade away our minor league talent. I've been asking for Santana to be traded since his first season but Stoneman refused and look how that turned out! Now, nobody wants Santana. He refused to trade Mathis. We have Figgins/Izturis/Willits in the lineup at the same time and people wonder why this team fails to generate runs. I get that they get on base but when you have Izturis batting 5th you are in major trouble despite his BA with RISP.

    I can go on and on. I'm just glad it's over now.

    GA is pretty damn selfish too... playing with 1 eye the whole series.

    I remember browsing a Red Sox forum during Game 2, and a funny comment from a Sox fan. He said, "OMG, We walked a one eyed guy?!"

    I know most people were all for getting rid of Erstad and Kennedy and so on... but those guys KNOW how to win and have playoff experience. We have a bunch of young players who are good... but when the pressure comes they choke due to lack of experience.

    I'd rather still have Jose Molina if he were still on our team to bat, instead of Napoli and Mathis combined.

    Yea, that's my thinking. I don't think he'll get fired unless the Angels miss the playoffs.

    Well, give the guy credit for Escobar and Orlando Cabrera. Both guys have been studs for the Angels. But yea, it seems like Stoneman's inactivity is what pisses off Angel fans the most.

    .

    Can't blame Stoneman for that last year. He had a deal with Santana and Aybar going to Baltimore for Miguel Tejada and Angelos nixed it for some inexplicable reason.

    I see what your saying, but it really is hard to get rid of SPs who have a lot of talent. Since they are so hard to get in free agency.

    Thats how I feel. And maybe not even then considering they didn't make it last year and guess who still has a job.

    Thats exactly what it is. It's been obvious for years now what this team needs, and he has been unable to bring it in. The commentators on the game today had a great quote "You can run your way to a division title, but in the playoffs sometimes you need some power". Exactly right.

    I agree with this. Stoneman's problem is he seems to think every single Angel prospect will turn into gold. He just doesn't have the stones to take a chance and make a move.

    I'm actually kind of glad this happened in this series because it proves that they are nowhere near world series calibur with this team and that something needs to be done if they are going to compete for more than just a division title each year.

    LOL. You can't score runs and you want to add back a couple guys who were garbage hitters? How about a little credit for Boston's dominant pitching staff?

    Why does this "knows how to win" cliche always come back around? The Red Sox players "know how to win" too, but unfortunately when two teams play only one team CAN win.
