Trammel at Scioscia
Official Game Thread
Colon (their's, not our's) vs. Santana (our's, not Arista's)
I'm going to the game tonight ... first time in person in almost a month ... so the game thread is up early
This is a good Angel team, a flawed and more tragic version of the 2004 AL West Champions ... perhaps their lower lows will balance with higher highs
This is a deeper team ... Izturis instead of Amezaga ... Rivera instead of DaVanon ... Byrd instead of Sele ... Escobar instead of Weber ... Santana instead of Ortiz ... Quinlan instead of Halter.
What the 2005 Angels lack in power of an absent Glaus and Guillen (which was supposed to be allayed by McPherson and Finley), it makes up for in suffocating other offenses ... even Vlad's three singles last night put him squarely with the team instead of as the team.
Let's win this thing.
