If it ain't broke, don't fix it... Angels skipper Mike Scioscia welcomes back Mister Freese to the lineup and partners Weave with his No-Hit buddy tonight, but there are many familiar rings to tonight's Halo lineup:
Monday #Angels First Name Lineup: Kole RF, Mike CF, Albert 1B, Josh LF, Howie 2B, Erick SS, David 3B, Christopher DH, Christopher C.— Halos Heaven (@halosheaven) July 7, 2014
or for everyone else...
- Kole Calhoun in Left Field
- All Star Mike Trout in Center Field
- Albert Pujols at First Base
- Josh Hamilton in Right Field
- Howie Kendrick is at Second Base
- Should be an All Star but Erick Aybar happy playing Short Stop
- David Freese back at 3B
- C.J. Cron is the Designated Hitter
- Chris Iannetta is Catching
With Jered Weaver on the mound and the lack of a Marine Layer in the neighborhood, look for flyball Weave to have his work cut out for him with the Homer-Happy Blue Jays. Conversely, hot Freese is is on with David McBourjos back in the lineup. Trout had a few off days so look for an All-Star roar back to life with the kid.
Meanwhile a final tidbit...
