Fellow Angel Fans: I'm a recovering Yankee fan. I was betrayed by whomever decided to pull Tommy John, (for George Frazier!) during game 6 of the '81 series....I can never believe it was Bob Lemon. The Angel skipper needs a little more "Bob Lemon". Bob Lemon would, (like every discerning Angel fan alive) realize that Bobby Abreu is gassed! He's the consumate 35 year old basesball player, (an Angel MVP candidate). But, right now, he's running on fumes. At the plate and in right field. A rested Booby A. makes that play last night, (the 7th inning play that pretty much cost the game). Mike S. is a great Mgr. He is however human. The same characteristic that make him great: patience, loyalty and respect can also me conflated w/ stubborness and obstinacy. He's committed to Bobby A. and (uncharacteristically) actually spoke undiplomatically to the media...stating he wants him back next year! Presently, he's sticking with Abreu the same way he stayed with Steve Findlay, (long after he proved to everyone in the world that he was washed up). Apparently, he emptied his tank carrying the Dodgers the previous summer, (which he parlayed into 14 mill for two years).
Mikey is similarly married to "the contact play". Fortunately, he's grown in at least one other way, (he's overcome his obsession w/ the suicide squeeze). Of course he needed help in his recovery, (provided by Mr. Francona last Oct.) I'm blogging immediately before Scott Kazmir makes his debut....He could be the missing piece, (provided by Mr. R. GM) to take care of business, (at the Fens) had as Angel radio man, Jeff Biggs says...."unfinished business". Go Bam Bam
