Silver Linings: April 10th, 2013 Edition


Recommended Posts

Albert Pujols, 4-4 with a walk. He's locked in to say the least. 

 

Howie Kendrick, 3 hits, one CLUTCH two out two RBI hit. 

 

Alberto Callaspo looked good in the two hole. One hit, two walks. 

 

The Angels have 5 regular starters that are hitting .300 or above in the lineup (Pujols, Bourjos, Callaspo, Kendrick and Aybar). 

 

Hank Conger with an RBI Single. He needs to start taking playing time away from the ice cold Chris Iannetta IMO. 

 

Jerome Williams was solid, pitching two scoreless innings. Has a 0.00 ERA thus far, though in limited time. 

 

The Rangers and Mariners lost, but the Angels fell into last place. Though we can rectify that with a weekend series vs. Houston this weekend. 

 

Nobody got injured in this game. 

 

* Please no sarcasm in this thread. This is for folks who want to take something from this game. I'm not an Angels apologist or Scioscia apologist, I'm a fan of the team that chooses to take something out of a crappy experience, hoping that tomorrow will be a better day. If you want to pound sand, there is a thread for you here

Pujols has been the shiz this year. Would like to see a few homers here and there but I think he has always been streaky with hitting them. I'm just glad to see him look like classic Pujols.

I just wish his foot wasn't hurt, so that he could occasionally score from first on a double. That's actually cost us (I think) 3 runs this year.

And I'll take Callaspo batting 2nd please. Trout 0 sb attempts with Aybar batting 2nd was pretty inexcusable. Trout immediately gets his first sb of the year with Callaspo batting 2nd.

 

Yeah, that was my main reason for wanting Callaspo there. You don't have to give up outs to get Trout into scoring position. Callaspo allows him the best chance to steal a bag.

I read the Scioscia was giving Trout constant red lights so that the defensive shifts would line up better for Aybar's pull-happy tendencies.

At least it was very easy to exit the stadium parking lot as 30,000 of the 36,000 in attendance had left by the time this marathon was over.  I sit in 419 and was one of four fans in this section at game's end.  Plus I got a great Angels calendar.  Thanks for a positive thread Chuck.

pujols is treat to watch at the plate. kids can learn alot about hitting just by watching his bat control and pitch selection strategy .petey is turning out to be an elite defensive cf.

if one more guy in this batting order gets hot, the pitching could be motivated to overachive.

Pujols was classic Pujols last year outside of April. He turned it on earlier this year and that's awesome. Hamilton will be fine. He's beginning to hit the ball, and hopefully turn it around sooner than Pujols did last year. Kendrick has been hitting all year so far, and it finally turned on with RISP. Petey is showing why the team didn't want to trade him. He's been doing his job for the most part.

Do you really think Callaspo batting second had anything to  do with that?

Jerome did surrender 1 unearned run thanks to an infield popup lost in the lights. He was the only pitcher last night that didn't seem as though the A's knew exactly what he was going to throw every pitch and probably should have seen action earlier last night as the substitute for Blanton.  

 

Bourjos had a lot of action last night sucking up baseballs like a vacumm. Trumbo look better at the plate but not so good in the field.

My daughter (2 1/2) and I had a blast at last nights game regardless of the outcome.

It seemed every Pujols at bat was laced to left. Hamilton had some contributions. Best of all some old school army vet ripped into an A's fan for talking trash to Hamilton. Wouldn't you know he was quiet the rest of the game.

Looking forward to Vargas going deep into the game today.
