Vladdy at the crossroads



     The only Angel who really didn't look zoned in against the Sox was Vladdy, who had a terrible at-bat against Lester with the bases loaded. I think he's facing a crossroads as his phenomenal hand-eye coordination declines. He still has enough talent to play for 5-7 years more, but he has to become a real hitter just as lots of power pitchers have to learn how to pitch as they age.
     If he learns to work counts and wait for his pitch, he can not only reach 500 home runs, but he has a shot at 3,000 hits. If he insists on being wild-swinging Vladimir Gurrrero till the bitter end, it'll be sooner, rather than later, and he may not even reach 500 HRs. It's still good enough for the Hall, but it'll leave a sour taste ... At least that's my take.
