it was the age of foolishness (Alberto Callaspo).
The worst possible team composition for any baseball fan must be one comprised of a strong rotation and defense that can hold down the opposition, just enough offense to overtake that opposition, and a horrendous bullpen to throw it all away at the end. Guess what? We got ourselves one of those tonight. Again.
RevHF reporting: Final Score in Oakland: the visiting Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim: 4, the hometown (by way of Kansas City and Philadelphia) Athletics 5 in 10 innings. The losing pitcher was Fernando Rodney. Angels closer Jordan Walden got a blown save for his 1 IP effort in the ninth inning. Unlike the extra-inning game in Boston that had a four-hour rain delay after four innings, this game started after a long rain delay and continued into extras. Oh and the Halos won in Fenway and lost on Monday night in Urloftheweek.com stadium.
