Can the Angels Count on Vladimir Guerrero?

The Angels are facing two lefties in the ALCS - CC Sabathia and Andy Pettitte in the first three games. This makes our Designated Hitter Vladimir Guerrero even more potent of a weapon than before.

A base hit off of Jonathan Paelbon on Sunday has made the belief in this once-great player arise from the Anaheim ashes... and yet his tentative limp makes us all wonder at times what luck's got to do with it. Save for a Francona mental bona', we might right now be arguing whether or not Vlad should be in the lineup for Wednesday's ALDS Game 5. Instead, one rip to center and he reaps his former greatness.

Has Vlad seen his last moment of glory or will he be a factor against the Yankees in the American League Championship Series?
