Save the Date: This Sunday afternoon, May 13 at 5 PM, Halos Heaven is going to be part of a giant Angels Family TV PARTY meetup to watch the Angels play the Rangers in Texas on ESPN. Details will be rolling in all week about some of the festivities, the special, the great charitable cause that it will be supporting and best of all for most of you: lots of good beer. Give mom an early Mother's Day present and head down to Anaheim with your designated driver to meet up and watch a game as the suds flow.
La Troy Hawkins fractures pinky: Angels relief pitcher LaTroy Hawkins relieved Scott Downs after Downs tweaked his knee fielding a line drive. Hawkins then fractured his pinky on his pitching hand fielding a line drive.
I check Rotoworld.com to track down injury updates... but there is always Twitter.
So who replaces Downs and Hawkins when they get DL'd today? No NOT JEPSEN: Angels relief pitcher Kevin Jepsen hasn't been productive enough. Now we might need him. There is ALWAYS FRANKIE RIGHT? Wrong. Okay then, there is THIS VETERAN at Salt Lake (oh dear) and then there is THIS GUY (we can hope) ... Stay tuned!
