Angels Overcome Frieri Meltdown in Scioscia's Absence

Troutswing - Scott Cunningham

That one was a kick in the teeth and then at least some relief

It was pretty simple.

Mike Scioscia was away at Bob Welch's funeral. (RIP to one of the only "favorite Dodgers" I ever had and a role model whose sobriety surely saved some lives). Dino Ebel showed he can do just as bad a bullpen-ganking managerial job as The Soth.

Ernesto Frieri gas-canned a 5-1 Angels lead like few other gas cans have ever engulfed a game into flames.

So a nice game was suddenly a five hour game and finally, finally finally Erick Aybar started a rally which was maybe just a meltdown of the Braves bullpen, who the hell knows?

One man's Rally is another man's meltdown.

Mike Trout had a good game.

Albert Pujols was clutch for once or twice and maybe he is - oh wait, he gimped around like Bengie Molina carrying a pot roast on the basepaths. Josh Hamilton is great. Garrett Richards did great.

Light up the Halo - but dump Frieri, please.
