Holy shit do I hate the Angels. They're aging yet scrappy, playing horseshit scamperball all day and blowing leads all night.
The Angels versus Roy Halladay is an almost comical enterprise. Howie Kendrick and Mike Napoli have had success in very limited at bats, though Kendrick's been good for nothing this season on the whole. Bobby Abreu, Torii Hunter, Gary Mathews, Chone Figgans, and The Izturis to be Named Later all feature sub-.500 OPS numbers against the good Doctor. I predict a return of LOLswings.
The Angels don't score too many runs, they don't play very good defense, and their starting pitching is strong if not inconsistent. Just as the most Blue Jay thing to do was take 2 of 3 from the Sox, losing 2 of 3 at home would be another highly Blue Jayish mindfuck of epic proportions. Stupid and arbitrary as it is, this series could serve as an excellent barometer for the season. This is a team that the Jays should stomp all over at home. Tonight almost seems like a forgone conclusion, putting fake pressure on fake number two starters Casey Janssen and Brian Tallet. More importatnly, will we see a return of MELONGATE?
On the Yankees Errorless Streak
If you care, I don't know what to tell you. The Yankees are 13th in the league in defensive efficiency, a fancy way of saying Derek Jeter and Robby Cano make zero errors on balls already bounding into the outfield. Good show gents.
And good show to Mr. Iracane, whom I stole the Yankee infield thoughts from as he fought with the Walkoff Walk lunchroom vending machine.
