Well, Thank Heavens I Was Getting My Picture Took: A's 9, Angels 4

Missed this one and the Dodgers' only slightly less humiliating 6-5 loss to the Marlins because I was at a photo shoot (Mother's Day prezy, all my siblings and their kids, plus our pups). Another bad outing by Joe Saunders, an unhelpful error by Brandon "Can't We At Least Try And See If He'll Clear Waivers?" Wood (ha-ha-only-serious), and more craptastic pitching out of the bullpen (Scot Shields again and worse, and Bobby Cassevah showing why his exposure to major league batters needs to be limited for a while).

Observing that both (how it pains me to write that) Angels wins have occurred in Jered Weaver starts, I don't suppose there's any hope the Angels can clone the Weav.

Hard to tell it from the boxscore, but if you had watched the game up to that point, Saunders was actually quite good, verging on automatic for six innings. The blame was on Scioscia for trotting him out in the seventh, and having him pitch to folks like Ellis, even after it was clear he was totally gassed, and he had righthanders like Jepsen warmed up and ready to go.
