The A's are a mess, a good rotation with a weak offense in a catastrophically bad park. Today was a nice reminder that the Angels have a shot at second place in the division, and maybe even first if things break well for the Halos. The offense was shockingly good — any time you see Jeff Mathis go 2-for-3 including a three-run jack, someone has been eating their Wheaties. Howie Kendrick went 3-for-4.
The Angels ran out people surnamed Calhoun, Armstrong, Witherspoon, Segura, Heid, Navarro, Melillo, and Bass. Mark Trumbo went 1-for-4, a two-out double in the second that went unrewarded.
It's the regular season, soon enough.
