Happy Bug Day to you. Today's Halolinks are brought to you by (this space available):
- Wow, did that game suck, or what? In what looked like auditions for all of the scouts in the stands, Garrett Richards coughed up 4 runs to start the game, Kendrys Morales showed a total lack of patience at the plate (although he did adequately field his position for the N.L. guys in attendance), and the team's minor league trading chip had a dubious debut: Kansas City Royals at Los Angeles Angels - Jul 24, 2012 - CBSSports.com. "Jean Segura made his major league debut at SS for the Angels and struck out his first two times up before reaching on an error. He was promoted from Triple-A Salt Lake for infield depth after Erick Aybar fouled a ball off his right big toe in Saturday's loss against Texas."
- Let's hope the rotations one consistent starter can keep it up: Royals-Angels Preview - Yahoo! Sports. "He (Jered Weaver) has won all six of his starts since returning from a stint on the disabled list June 20, posting a 1.51 ERA in that stretch. The right-hander, who finished second to Verlander in the AL Cy Young voting last year, is especially dominant at home, going 15-2 with a 1.46 ERA in 23 starts over the last two seasons. That includes a staggering 7-0 record and 0.67 ERA in eight games in 2012."
Is he crying? I know getting hit on the hand must really hurt, but WTF?
