Angels Stuff: A Bad Sawx Series, A Callup, And Rating The Relief Corps
- I missed yesterday's conclusion to the series sweep at the hands of the Red Sox, a series that True Grich called four of the most "miserable days in a regular season" in his recollection as a fan. I would answer that with the entire 2003 season, which felt like an enormous disappointment coming off the World Series high. (It also featured a series loss at home against Boston, though not a sweep.) The Sawx blanked the Angels 7-0 with Alberto Callaspo batting cleanup. Really, Mike? I hope we never see that again.
- A Halos Heaven fanshot cites an El Nacional report claiming Alexi Amarista has been called up to the big club, return unknown as of this moment.
Update: I note in passing that Rotoworld, which is usually up on this kind of thing, does not make this report.
- Lastly, as kind of a fun thing, Sam Miller at the Register has a straw poll asking Angels fans to rate Halos relievers in order of most trusted to least. I don't think Scott Downs deserves to be on that list given how little he's pitched, do you?
