Well, I have to say this season has been a season of surprises for me. We have gotten the predictable production out of Vlad Guerrero and Torii Hunter (despite injuries), Juan Rivera, Chone Figgins and the catchers. But 3 things have really opened my eyes this seaason.
1) Erick Aybar: I was never a believer until I saw this kid play SS for a full season. Not only does he make all the routine plays, he makes the spectacular ones too, and plays Angels baseball the way the Soth wants him to. Revelation. This guy plays such a beautiful shortstop I hope we never have another one.
2) Kendry Morales: OK, I've already written an open letter of apology to acuda to say that I didn't think this guy was gonna be this good. But he has been way better than advertised. He's already got 30 bombs and 95 RBI. OK, he could whiff a little less, but it's awfully hard to argue with a .583 slugging percentage.
3) Jered Weaver: I always thought he was a soft-tossing version of his older brother, but how has he broken out this year? Perhaps it took the tragic death of his good friend Nick Adenhart for Jered to grow up, but you can't argue with the numbers. (15-5, 3.76 ERA much better than Chuck Finley ever did). So go Jered! Keep No .34 on all year.
Sit for now see you soon highland xx
