Flavor of the month, Robert Coello, gets another profiling, Jered Weaver takes another step towards returning to the Angels rotation and, just who is this Billy Buckner that is going up against the Royals tonight. Six in a row. Six wins in a row. That’s kid of like two winning streaks, right?
So we’re going with “forkleball” as the name of Coello’s crazy knuckle/fork ball, huh? I guess that’s better then the not-appropriate-for-this-blog name that I had.
“There’s no consistent action to it — it’s unpredictable,” Chris Iannetta said. “I try to stay relaxed and find a way to catch it.”
Great. Iannetta already has a tough enough time behind the plate.
These are popping up more often then stories about the Angels non-pitcher, Ryan Madson. Which would make me skeptical about Weaver’s existence, if I hadn’t already seen him pitch in an Angels uniform.
Has he ever. It would probably be a good idea though, if Mike Trout sent Marty Foster a fruit basket or something for that free stolen base he got last night.
Linked for the Rock-A-Doodle reference. Other than that, I know nothing about Arrested Development, so, yeah.
I know nothing about this Buckner kid. I wish somebody would write something that gave us a little bit of background information on him.
Well, that was convenient.

Really? Seriously? The ball was slick, so you spit on it to get a better grip?
Torii Hunter is the anti-(insert player with a massive attitude problem here). He has long been one of the good guys in baseball, even if he does make ill-advised comments about the possibility of having a homosexual teammate.
