Shoemaker Going Game 2 For Angels


Recommended Posts

I know that Shoemaker has been pretty automatic at home so far. 

Definitely have to win the first two, because game 3 seems prohibitively in KC's favor unless Nibs reverts to his 2013 through May 2014 self.


One thing in Nibs' favor:  KC was LAST in AL BBs with only 380.

The Halos were 8th with 492 BBs, their most since 2009.


That does make a control pitcher like Shoemaker become a little vulnerable, because they swing at so many pitches.

Could that partly explain his outing in KC?

I hate that Angels fans are so pessimistic about CJ starting game 3.  This is a brilliant move if you ask me.  If CJ comes out and struggles, we have the bullpen depth to use a quick hook and insert Rasmus which can almost certainly ensure it'll at least be a close game if CJ can't get it together.


And if CJ does get it together, there's a decent potential for 7 shutout innings.  


That's a chance I take against a team's ace any day of the week.
