Throw in the Towel?

Reasons to throw in the towel...

Very few Angel batters appear to be capable of anything more than what they have produced already...

Inconsistent Starting Pitching has too many question marks...

The vaunted rookies are not kicking the azz they were supposed to have, and there are no bats in the minors pushing to get into this pathetic lineup...

Stoneman is a lock to not trade away the future, and the value of any player he would part with on the big club has been so hindered by this lousy start that trading an Angel will yield nothing to dramatically impact the team's hopes this season.

Reasons to NOT throw in the towel...

Bartolo is coming back soon...

The standout AAA seasons of Bulger and Jered Weaver make a trade of pitching (a desired commodity) from the big club for a big bat more likely...

The remaining 3/4 of the season will be slightly easier on us, but not on our division foes: The Angels have played a few grinding road trips and some of the tougher teams already...

BEST OF ALL: After sucking beyond words, we are only 4 games back in a weak division. This thing can be SO HAD!
