About That Cranio-Rectal Inversion: Rangers 8, Angels 7

Jered Weaver clearly had very little to work with today in a park where he has generally done fairly well at previously, with a 3.65 ERA. We can quibble about when Scioscia should have yanked him, and maybe things would have been different if Scioscia had let Trevor Bell face Josh Hamilton.

Nevertheless, the game's proximate loser was just one in a long line of failures. The bullpen has been godawful this year, at present the third worst in the league. And I really don't see that changing. So no matter who the Angels brought in, it would have been a crapshoot at best.

It's way too early to be giving up on the season, and I really don't want to be doing that; I've been fooled a lot of times. But the Angels just don't seem to be showing any signs of getting off the mat, or when they do, they execute a pratfall the very next day.
