FOR THOSE WHO WOULD TRADE HOWIE KENDRICK, HERE IS A NICE PICTURE... - Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

Speechless.

FINAL SCORE IN ANAHEIM: Angels 5, Blue Jays 6

Just when you think the bottom has fallen out, the Angels show you the trap door and fall right into it.

C.J. Wilson had a 5-3 lead with one out in the eighth inning. he gave up two singles and gave way to the bullpen.

By the time the bottom of the inning had arrived, five pitchers had gotten two outs and allowed two runs.

Closer Ernesto Frieri got the final out of the eighth inning but that is not what they pay him to do. He allowed two men on to start the ninth and Dane De La Rosa brought them both in to pin him with the loss.

In the eleventh game in history where Mike Trout and Mark Trumbo each homered for the Angels, it was only the second time the team lost.

Oh and two errors by Chris Nelson, one in that critical eighth, as well as an error by Trumbo in that inning... well they basically helped to lose the game in a big way.

Mitigating circumstance: Umpire Brian Knight made an inexcusably terrible call on a rundown throw at 2B with an out in the ninth inning. It was as if he was helping to pay off a bookie debt. MLB should investigate his personal finances or get a three-year-old child to operate a replay system to overturn such obvious blown calls. The Angels might have won if that had been properly recorded as the second out. If that had happened to the Yankees or Red Sox you would be reading about it everywhere but it happened to the Angels so you will only read about it here.

Tim Donaghy is not the exception. What kind of jewelry does Brian Knight's wife/partner wear?
