The Not Ready For Prime Time Player: Indians 14, Angels 5
- The pitcher hypnotizes the hitters and completely dominates them, for the hitters haven't seen his stuff before.
- The pitcher collapses and throws batting practice.
Speaking of guys the Angels need to send back, is it time to declare the era of Kevin Gregg sadly over? He can't even get through the spaghetti-batted Indians without giving up four earned runs. The second a better option appears, I'm beginning to think the Angels will run off with it. Unfortunately, that also means Esteban Yan, who has spent most of his career being a third or fifth option in the pen -- save last year for the Tigers, when he was their leading reliever by innings pitched. It may come as a surprise to you to learn that the Tigers were not a particularly good team last year. If so, you may go back to reading the financial news.
Update: despite comments above, the rotation for the Dodgers series is Washburn, Lackey, and Byrd.
