Unacceptable: Rangers 11, Angels 6
We left the game as Justin Speier was giving up consecutive homers, to Omar Goddamn Vizquel and Michael Young. Young I can handle. Vizquel? His first home run in two years! Good God.
Update: The Rangers continued scoring even unto the ninth, making it 11-6 when the dust settled. Maicer Izturis drove in four of the Angels' five runs, three of them on a homer.
Supposedly Joe Saunders has shoulder tightness which I wouldn't be too surprised to discover is either (a) a phantom injury to get him off the major league roster for a while, or (b) a real injury that explains how bad he's been ever since May.
reports passes on a radio report that Jose Arredondo got the callup to replace Saunders on the 25-man, as Hokie Joe has indeed hit the DL.
