Some names have been tossed around about who the Angels should go after to improve our pitching. It seems like a lot of fans here don't understand how waivers work. Since we are at the top of our division, we are one of the last teams to get a chance to claim a player off waivers. So, there is little to no chance we are going to get Heath Bell, or any other good player off waivers this season.
I think our only hope is that enough of our in-house pitchers turn it around down the stretch. The bullpen has certainly settled down, though. In the past 30 days, Jepsen, Bulger, Oliver, and Palmer all have ERA's under 3.00. If they keep it up, and Fuentes has no more hiccups, the pen should be okay.
What we really need is to have at least one, if not two, of our starting pitchers step it up. Lackey and Santana look good right now, but there's no way two starters can carry us to and through the post season. I really hope Weaver isn't injured and hiding it like Saunders was. Let's hope that last start was just a fluke. We need Weave to return to form immediately to make this last push to the playoffs.
