now as 2006 fades away let us salute the greatest man to ever be an angel.
through great years and bad years tim salmon has been a phenomenal player. for some young fans (like me) he is the first of the great angels we saw play as a halo. for others he is the latest player to be an angels legend following in the lines of fregosi and downing and ryan, and many more.
scioscia needs to give him a chance for 300. usually personal records mean nothing but if we can not get into the playoffs we have got to give salmon an opportunity to go out in style.
let him bat third the rest of the way, let him see if in 9 games he can hit 2 bombs. let him bring one more smile to our face. and let him get one more curtain call at home.
if we have to see a team next year without salmon's presence let us truely treasure what we have left with the fish around.
