Until next week when he is dealing with more inflammation, or some weird feeling in his elbow, or because of a stubbed toe. The clock is ticking, ticking, ticking away, and his window of usefulness to the Angels post TJS is getting smaller and smaller each day.
Yes, there are 107 games left to be played. Yes, that is a lot of baseball. But, it’s the same situation that the Angels found themselves in last year, so I don’t fault fans for being a wee bit apprehensive in breaking out their wallets to secure post season tickets just yet.
And the rotation has been settling all season. The performance of late has been as good as it can be, and if it sustains, then this team is in business. The problem is, sustaining this high level of performance. I, personally, have my doubts.
Which means that Joe Blanton is going to continue to get starts. Which means that I am not a fan of this decision.
The word “countless,” as in “countless pitchers’ careers have been extended thanks to Lewis Yocum…” is an understatement.
A little Jason Vargas love, which he should be getting a lot of from Angels fans thanks to what he has done this May.
