Jason Schmidt And The Fork Test: Dodgers 7, Reds 5Honestly, at this point I don't care whether Jason Schmidt gets a fair shake; his 87 MPH heater speaks for itself in ineffectiveness. He gave up three runs in the very shaky first, and managed to settle down thereafter for four scoreless innings thereafter, but watching him pitch was not a happy experience. You think that once the rest of the league catches up to his Jamie Moyer impersonation some time later this year, we'll be reading about how he's reinventing himself as a knuckleballer a la R.A. Dickey. Is Schmidt done? I'm not sure, but I'd be willing to say the answer is "yes". Maybe not today, maybe not his next start, but soon.
Angels Rained Out In KCDoubleheader starting at 2:10 today. Hopefully I don't forget, and am I evil for getting upset that I'm missing eartime with Pandora because of it?
Vlad's Clock Ticking DownCaptain Obvious Alert!
"I think it's important not just for the Angels but for Vlad to show he can get healthy," General Manager Tony Reagins said. "We like the player. We know he's a talented player. He just needs to get out and play — like any player, whether he's going into his free agent year or not."Vlad's falling apart at a pretty fast pace. This could easily be his last productive season in the bigs.
