Angels Return Escobar To The Bullpen

Well, that's a relief. On the other hand, the reason for it is Escobar has a sore shoulder and won't be available to pitch until next week.

Sadly, I don't think it will make a difference. John Lackey is still not healthy, so he'll either be back on the DL soon enough, or he'll continue to pitch, albeit ineffectively (Lackey's fastball was hovering between 88-90; when healthy, he's 91-95). Santana isn't right, either, although he has a bit more life on his pitches. So, they've still got a depleted rotation, an ineffective pen, and a sputtering offense. I still expect Texas to fade, and the Angels could still win the division, but they aren't going anywhere this year. Now watch them pull off an '88 Dodgers run.
Eh, not so much. Who plays the Kirk Gibson role?
Well, Vlad's definitely got the busted knees...
