Public Enemy #1.
Screw You, Johnny Damon. I'm sick and tired of you completely destroying our pitching (albeit, our terrible pitching). If you could please stop hitting the baseball to all parts of the field (including out of it), and stealing bases, etc. Angels Nation would greatly appreciate it.
In case you missed it, Johnny Damon not only doubled and later scored the tying run in today's (VERY early) game. But in the bottom of the ninth, off of Scott "LOL" Shields, he hit a walk-off home run to end the game.
I mean, it could be worse. The Angels could be the Mets, who are currently losing 10-0 to the Phillies and look like its only going to get worse.
Just a few thoughts from todays game:
- Watching Eric Aybar struggle to play fundamental baseball is one of the most painful experiences of my life.
- I was pretty sure Victor Rojas and Mark Gubicza were going to come to blows over a disagreement over Aybar's decision to try and throw out Damon at third base (the run that would eventually tie the game). They sadly did not.
- Its good to see Morales turn around this week after an incredibly slow start against the Indians.
Outlook: Once we start playing the crummy Western Division, things will get better... I hope.
