Still Fight Left: Angels 6, A's 0
Tomorrow, the spectacle of Tim Salmon, and Sunday, the reality of his retirement and the end of the regular season. It's gone all too quickly; I only wish I had been healthy enough to go (I've had a cold all week, and it got worse today).
This team doesn't need wholesale changes, just one bat with power we can count on, preferably in left field, and maybe a new CF and some additional help in the bullpen.
The Angels have NOT had a great year ... they've had a good year, which is better than many teams can say. Being the second best of the worst division is still being the SEVENTH BEST of 14 teams. That's an "F," my friend.
If you think they are one bat and a CF away, then I've got a luxury box behind home plate to sell you. What's the line, they're one bat away if that bat is Babe Ruth ... ?
