I'm worried as an Angel fan. Going into the season the starting rotation looked like the best in baseball but as the season progresses two of the quote-unquote "four aces" have been more of liability than a strength. I'm talking about Haren and Santana. As of now their ERA's are the highest on the team (Santana 5.21 and Haren 4.53) which is quite sad especially because we expected the second ace form of Dan Haren which we haven't gotten this year.
I think Haren's just hurt so a nice All-Star break off should do him well. If he can swallow his pride and get some extra rest I think he'll be back into his ace form. Santana on the other hand...well he just sucks. This leads me to think that the Angels should looking at a starting pitcher come the trade deadline. Someone like Shawn Marcum or Ryan Dempster that can solidify the middle of the rotation which is what Santana was supposed to do. Santana could go into the bullpen or be traded, I don't care as long as he's not in the rotation anymore. And if you think don't think we need anymore pitching, well look at the Toronto series.
