If GA Weren't So Lazy, The Angels Would Have Lost: Angels 1, Tigers 0 (12 Innings)
- Four pitch walk. GA, how could you be so lazy? Don't you know you're supposed to swing? Have you been ignoring Mickey Hatcher or something?
- How much pressure can Howie Kendrick stand? With the offense struggling like this, is it really fair to pin so much of the team's hopes for improved hitting all but exclusively on his (and Chone Figgins') shoulders?
- Vlad had a three-fer night! All say hallelujah.
- Nice game by all pitchers: Jon Garland, Scot Shields, K-Rod, and Jose Arredondo.
I think it is reasonable. HK and Figgy's replacements have been more or less automatic outs. With the combination of Napoli being inconsistent (whihc he always will be) and the entire veteran OF in a season long slump, getting absolutely no offense from the bottom of the order when there could be average offense is really killing the team. It especially doesn't help that the best hitter is right before the two worst hitters on the team, making it so that every time Kotchman reaches base there is no chance for him to score.
