As we predicted Mike Scioscia made the necessary switch employing Jordan Walden in place of Fernando Rodney as the Halos closer. Walden gave a non heart burn or Rolaids inducing performance Monday as he retired the Rays in order preserving a 5-3 win for the Angels on just 12 pitches. It was a drama free succinct performance the way saves should be. For his effort Walden was blessed with the following Tweet from bullpen mate Kevin Jepsen
everyone give it up to @JWal51 for closin the door tonight!! Filthy!!!
Kudos to Jepsen for propping up his teammate and to Mike Scioscia for making an obviously needed change. Scott Kazmir could be next.
The Tuesday “ Twitter Stalking” series at the Halo Hangout takes a look at the best recent Tweets from Angels players and personnel. The word “stalking” is used solely for entertainment purposes and to mock the behavior of crazy ex girlfriends worldwide. Only we wont cut up your jeans or throw your stuff out on the lawn.. We’re just stalking for fun.
