Angels Call Up Rich Thompson
No disrespect intended to Rich, but given Vlad's now extended absence, is there any reason why the Angels aren't calling up Brandon Wood?
And we think we have in-house solutions...why?
It would help if Mike Scioscia would at least be consistent with his bullpen management. His set formula of Arredondo-7th Shields-8th Closer-9th was a dumb idea, but those players have settled into their roles and are having a tough time breaking out of them. If he's going to change it up, he needs to learn that closers get paid the big bucks to get big outs, not to earn big save totals by throwing a single pitch for an out in the ninth. Unbelievable.
Did everyone fail to notice that? Are they hurt?
