Nice sweep of the Rangers. Pure domination, although the offense kinda shut down after the first inning.
I think the Angels should lock Ervin Santana to a long-term deal. The guy successfully made the transition from AA-ball to the bigs and turned a lot of heads in 2005.

The Angels are looking strong through the first five...Oakland looks okay, the verdict is still out on Seattle, and Texas looks absolutely miserable. Can we call for another division title in 07?

spring training was great... first week regular season was great... now we suck....
Vladdy out after hbp- Kendrick broken finger after hbp- Cabrera & Izturis only other regulars hitting.....
In the first week The Angels outscored their opponents 28-16
On the road trip they were outscored by their opponents 44-16
the overall scoring of Angels 42, opponents 60 gives a Pythagorean winning percentage of .324. That's 52 wins over the 162 game schedule.
At 6 wins & 9 losses the actual winning percentage is .400, equivalent to 65 victories for the season.
Mr. Moreno is a very patient man...

You gotta feel for the Halos' staff. Jered Weaver makes one mistake against Oakland and that turned out to be the difference. John Lackey pitched great the next day and the Angels get shut out.
Stoneman's inability to make any moves will cost him his head in the future.

Good win tonight against the Mariners. If only we had hit like that this past road trip. I certainly can't complain about the pitching. Colon finally comes back tomorrow. I'm looking very much forward to it.

yeah, what a difference a day makes... back to tied for 1st with Oakland (each team 9-9)
Column in Daily Bulletin yesterday noted how Vlad carries the offense like Kobe does for Lakers... I can't argue
I was glad to see Santana back on his game yesterday, & hear some comments (from Sciosia on the radio I think) about something other than his home-away splits... something about how he needs stop trying to develop too many new pitches and stick with the proven stuff.
What a rotation, imaging having to send Saunders back to minors- he'd be in the top half of the rotation on a lot of teams.

Santana is 21-5 career at the Big A and 9-13 on the road. I think he needs to pitch only in Anaheim.

Santana again proved his affinity for every ballpark not featuring a synthetic rock pile in center field by going six innings to surrender six runs, five of them earned, and tallying only two more K's than HR's surrendered....I swear the idea was to wear red today with the hope that the psychological effect of not seeing himself in a road jersey would equal a long-overdue Santana road victory, but alas, the gruesomeness in grey continues for the kid
Oh and if the idea is to quietly prep Scot Shields for a closer's role next year (since the Yanks are gonna throw Clemens-type green his way) then they really oughta re-think that prospect. He has closer-type stuff that makes a hitter's knees buckle, but he lacks the mental edge of Frankie

i'm from buffalo and i've been watching the angels for a long time. i think we can go all the way this year!

Bring on the Dodgers!!! It's time to rough up Brad Penny. I'm ready to face the team, I'm never quite ready for their fans though....

Round 1 goes to Orange County
Looks like Round 2 will also go to the Halos (Hendrickson is pitching)

GREAT series against the crosstown blue bummers, they've still got red marks from the broom stick beating we gave 'em! Now let's jump all over the bombers while they're scuffling, I'm heading to the Big Apple to catch the action live myself!

Figgy is INCREDIBLE and what a comeback tonight! Anybody else feel like this team has the spirit of a certain '02 team of destiny? Even Hillenbrand got 3 hits tonight! As for G.A. I hate to say it, but it's time to trade the injury-magnet while we can still get something for him....The time has come for the young guns to take this team back to the top of the baseball mountain....
06-21-2007, 09:57 PM
I do feel that certain air of destiny amidst this team. They're playing small ball, just like the '02 team, but have an advantage because of the incredible depth on this team.
07-24-2007, 11:12 PM
Boy how the tables have shifted in such a quick and nasty fashion around the Halos....Santana is suddenly proving that he can't win anywhere against anyone, and likely will now be too diluted to be trade bait, Colon is bigger, slower and more injury/long ball prone than ever and the bats are still pretty damn quiet against the hated rivals from the Bay. Yikes. Adam Dunn, where art thou? Mark Teixeira from one AL West stinker to a contender? Or maybe Troy Glaus has one more turn in red left in him....All I know is that the team is really playing some sad baseball lately, and a power bat to protect Vladdy (Quinlan batted cleanup tonight, GEEEEEZ!) is gonna have to appear real soon....

Congratulations to you, Angels fans. I'm sure you're excited about winning your Division, and you now get to enjoy the most exciting part of the season. I don't know how the final pairings will line up, but I wish you good luck, unless it's against my Red Sox.
09-24-2007, 10:11 AM
DickZ, if the Red Sox keep losing laughers like the one against the Rays yesterday, then we should worry more about the Indians, because we own the Yankees, and the Red Sox seem determined to collapse again.

Angel's pitching matches up pretty well against the Tribe. If your everyday lineup is healthy, your team is formidable.
I would rather face the Yanks or BoSox in the first round than the Halos, any day.
Congrats and good luck!

Congratulations to the American League West Division champion Angels. You've been a successful team over the past few years, and kudos to Arte Moreno on really striving to make the Angels L.A.'s best baseball team. I don't like the whole "Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim" thing (Los Angeles Angels is better to me), but there's one thing your team can be called that the Mariners, Rangers, and A's can't...and that's division champions.
