Pink Hats

Wanna feel better about yourself? This guy, and the pink hatter, and the tool sitting next to her, are losing to the Tampa Bay Rays. Granted, the Rays have lost 6 straight, but they'll figure it out soon enough.

Angels 4, A's 1

Ervin Santana. 7 innings. 10 strikeouts. No runs. Just 5 hits and 2 walks. Dominance.

This was a good rebound from his last start, which was terrible, and the one before, also bad. Dana Eveland was, as expected, underwhelming, giving up 2 runs, 5 hits, and 5 walks to a notoriously free-swinging Angels offense. That offense was driven with RBI's from Vlad, Juan Rivera, and Howie Kendrick, with another run scoring on a first-inning wild pitch. I've said it before and I'll say it again: Dana Eveland and "league average" are four words that belong together.

Gary Matthews Jr. was in the lineup to make a statement, and proudly proclaimed "I suck!" by going 0-4 with a pair of strikeouts and 3 LOB. The other overpaid Angels center fielder went 1-4 with a walk, but he really needs a game or two off. Good thing the All Star break is one game away.

I still say the Angels win the World Series if they sign Barry Bonds. Just do it.


  • Amanda plays 27 year old Venezuelan Milagros Sequera tomorrow for the Mecco Cup. She's been ranked as high as 29, but currently sits at 159.
  • Billy Beane is an idiot. Look, I know hes made some incredible personnel acquisitions, but I don't see how anyone can consider the Harden rade a good deal for the A's. Harden started for the Cubs today and pitched 5.1 shutout innings with 10 strikeouts. The Cubs would piss away a seven run lead but eventually win in the 11th.
  • The Lakers need to sign Ronny Turiaf, who just recieved an offer sheet from Golden State, just so we can listen to his cheereading on those "Wired" segments.
