Angels sweep the A's The pitching and batting has really pick up in the last couple of weeks!
The Angels are up for a 3 game series starting friday against Detroit next and The Tigers are one game behind The White Sox; I am guessing that the Angels/Tigers series will go 2/3 either way. This is the start of a 10 game road trip for Detroit.
The White Sox play 3 against the Royals and I am just hoping the Royals put up a fight and then we go on to Sox/Tigers for 4.
After their four game series I imagine we will have a pretty solid guess on who is taking the AL Central.
Not feeling good about this series with the Dodgers. Lincecum might be our best shot at actually taking a game, and that is a sad situation to be in.
I know what you mean. At this point he's just as much of a wild card as Zito. Never thought I'd say that in a million years. Despite giving up only two runs he still pitched like shit. Seven walks is unacceptable and he's extremely lucky that the Dodgers didn't capitalize.
I know he lost a little bit of his stuff but I believe that most of his problems are mental. That 0-2 pitch to that bum Kennedy should have been nowhere near the strike zone. Especially considering the fact that Kenned rakes him. He's been doing it all season. He throws great pitches to set up the strike out but can't seem to make the money pitch that he needs to get the K and instead serves up meatballs. He really needs to start getting his head into the games or I don't think we're gonna make it that far in the playoffs.
Dodgers pitching hasnt been that great, so getting some runs in early on will help.
And previous to that they were lacking run production. The Dodgers are one of my times as my Great Grandfather use to tell me stories about the Brooklyn Dodgers, those damn Yankees and the 'Little Giants'; he was a Brooklyn fan.
But personally when it comes to the NL WEST and the majority of the National League I support the Giants.
