Sean Burnett heads back to the DL, the odds of hitting for the cycle and, Tommy Hanson returns. Dr. Lewis Yocum passed yesterday at the age of 66, succumbing to cancer. How large was Dr. Yocum’s presence in Major League Baseball? He was the Doctor that team’s sent their pitchers too when they were injured. Rest in peace Dr. Yocum.
It’s not his surgically repaired UCL, so that’s good. But, this is his second trip to the DL this season. Hopefully after this trip he can stay on the roster for the rest of the season.
“Hopefully in 15 days I’m good to go,” Burnett said. “Kind of like the tin man that was a little squeaky.”
Wah, wah, waaaaaahhhhhhh.
Lots and lots and lots of math. Like, boat loads of math. But, it turns out that Mike Trout is the most likely hitter to hit for the cycle. Whodathunkit?
Again, Yocum’s presence not only to baseball, but to the Angels specifically (he was the team’s orthopedist) cannot be understated.
Yes, a giant in the world of sports medicine.
Back spasms are the suck, seriously. But, first it was allergies, now this. By a show of hands, who is starting to get annoyed with these little things?
Until the last two nights, this team has looked every bit like the team we expected to see coming into this season. It’s enough to inject confidence back into this blogger. Or maybe that’s the meds?
It’s not just that the Angels scored two runs on a strikeout. It’s that Albert Pujols was the second run to score on said strikeout.
Hamstrings are tricky, but the fact that Peter Bourjos has started doing some form of sprinting, is a very good sign.
I hope that Hanson is OK. Every person ever, has had to deal with a death, and everyone deals with it differently. And I couldn’t begin to imagine what it is like to lose a younger brother. Best of luck to you going forward, Tommy. We’re in your corner.
