The .500 Team: Rangers 3, Angels 0
But for anyone complaining that Jered Weaver was left in too long (as the Lyle Spencer intro on the Gameday summary page said), I have to ask, did you really want the bullpen in there?
The team barely hit, Weaver did what he could, and the wheels fell off. If the Angels want to look like contenders again, this .500 squad will have fix the bullpen and get some pop. Emergency hacks like DHing Mike Napoli isn't going to cut it. It's time to get serious, and if that means trading one of Erick Aybar or Maicer Izturis, well, they moved Jose Molina, didn't they?
the only thing i can guess is they'll let Chone walk when he gets too expensive, and Wood will be at 3rd. I want Wood as much as anyone, but there's no complaint from this quarter of the left IF.
Morales and the outfield is doing what's expected, except for Aberu HRs.
What's wrong with Howie?
And Howie is as lost as I've ever seen him. I'm almost to the point of wanting to see him down in Salt Lake to fix his swing.
