Why, Albert Pujols? Why?
I still flip-flop on what I want the Angels to do with Jason Vargas this year into next year. Some days, I want the Angels to extend him for a couple more years. He wouldn’t cost much I’m sure. Other days, I want them to extend him a qualifying offer and call it a day. Others, I want to see him moved at the waiver deadline. One of these days, I will figure out where exactly I stand on this issue, but it probably wont be until the Angels decision is made. At which point, I will probably pan that decision.
Striking out the side to get the save on Friday had to go a long way to reestablish some confidence in Ernesto Frieri. But I’d almost like to see him added to the “players the Angels are dangling” list, just because I am curious as to what some team would give up to get him.
Between these two catches, I absolutely take Mike Trout‘s catch. More room to cover, the jump height, all of it. Mike Trout’s catch > J.B. Shuck’s catch. period.
Oh goodie. A sound-off article with experts from emails sent to the L.A. Times by readers.
Could be small sample size. Could be a legitimate adjustment. But Chris Iannetta throwing out three guys on Friday should be indicative enough, but that wont change other teams’ approach when it comes trying to run on Tommy Hanson. If this carries over into the next start? I’ll be a believer.
