With every passing season, I grow more and more disillusioned with the All-Star Game voting and selection process. Mike Trout being named an All-Star was a guarantee. Howie Kendrick being snubbed was a total bummer.
Then he started the game 0-4. Then collected three RBI’s in his final two at bats. The last two coming via a huge walk off home run. Buckle up y’all, this ride is about to get fun.
But i don’t want to wait a month to get giddy and excited about Josh Hamilton. I want to do it now.
Ervin Santana bums me out the most. You could make a case for Scott Kazmir, but his 4.86 ERA is still high, even if his final ERA with the Angels was 27.00. He does have a K/9 of 8.4 though, which is his highest since 2008.
Yeah, I still can’t bring myself to like John Lackey. Like Mike Napoli, he said some pretty harsh things about the Angels fanbase when he left for Boston after the 2009 season. Weaver may be forever endeared to me, but that doesn’t mean I have to like his choice in friends.
