Other than possibly getting a Matt-Capps style reliever, I think the Angels are done for the offseason.
Opening Day is April 5, 2010 in Anaheim against the Twins... 105 Days away... Can you predict the Angels Opening Day starters?
If you come closest to predicting these results, you will win more than bragging rights... Predicting the Opening Day batting order and position players for the the Angels will get you two tickets (donated to HH by a member of our community) for the final Sunday Game of the season (9/26/10 Vs. the White Sox). Seats will be nosebleeders... but what the heck...
1. Name the Angels Batting Order for Opening Day. 1 point for each correct name in the exact numbered batting slot of the order.
2. Name the Angels Positional Starters for the game. 1 point for each correct name of the guys who take the field and see the first pitch of the 2010 season.

18 possible points. 3 tiebreakers:
Tiebreaker #1: Name Angels pitcher who records final out in top of the 9th inning in the 2010 season opener.
Tiebreaker #2: Who will score the first Angels run of the game/season
Tiebreaker #3: Who will record the first Angels hit of the game/season.
BATTING ORDER is defined as the batting order when the first pitch of the game is thrown. The positional starters and lineup positions that are in place when that first pitch is thrown will be the correct answers for this contest.
