Plaschke Hurls A Meatball Over The Plate On Teixeira
If Teixeira walks, so does a chunk of Moreno's Angels mystique, as if he suddenly announced he were doubling beer prices.Except that... one of my principle criticisms of him was that he failed to get any extra-base hits in the postseason. Even when he manages to get something right, Plaschke still misses important pieces of the picture.
Moreno needs this. Scioscia needs this. The Angels need this.
All winter, Angels fans have been burdened with the memory of a failed suicide squeeze.
Sign Teixeira, and replace it with a homer.
