Jason Isringhausen told reporters (including MLB.com's Alden Gonzalez) that he won't accept an assignment to Triple-A if he loses his roster spot when Jordan Walden returns from the DL ( Twitter link). The 39-year-old has pitched to a 4.02 ERA in 40 1/3 innings for the Angels this year.
The Angels are the most inconsistent team in the history of the universe.
Since the all-star break Frieri has given up 7 earned runs in 8 innings of work. He's allowed three home runs, 7 hits, and walked 7.
Borjous has been a Draysbay favorite since his minor league days and I believe he is a perfect target for the Rays organization. First he is young and controllable for a number of years. He is 25 and will only be 26 on opening day 2013. He is still a year plus away from the arbitration process and would be under team control through the 2016 season.

Award Sweep for the Angels is entirely possible
Going for the series win lineup: 1. Trout, 2. Hunter, 3. Pujols (DH), 4. Trumbo (1B),
5. Kendrick, 6. Aybar, 7. Bourjos, 8. Itzuris, 9. Hester Pitching: Mills
The Angels no longer have room in the starting lineup for the injured Vernon Wells now that Mark Trumbo and Mike Trout have solidified the outfield, and one rival GM thinks Wells could be released when he's ready to return from the disabled list.
