Angels down the final stretch for 2008

Post by sbayhills » Mon Jul 28, 2008 8:25 pm

Let's start here on tonights game. Nice comeback after being down by a run with a 6 run 6th. Great clutch hitting tonight, and they showed some power. Good to go into the 9th with a 3 run lead on the road in Boston. Nice start to a 10 game eastern road trip with their 3rd win in 4 games.

I'm waiting anxiously to see what happens with ManRam...dude is something else.

Angels are cooking. Can they do it again this year?

I predict that the Boston faithful are tired of losing to the Angels, and all the stops will be pulled out tonight to see it doesn't happen. I would love to see another ManRam moment. It always makes for good viewing. :lol:

I just got off the phone with a buddy of mine in Maine. He thinks the Sox will let him go after this season.

Long as they don't let him go in our direction, I'm good. Didn't I just hear he's going to Florida?
<edit>No, I just heard he's going to the OTHER "Los Angeles."</edit>

Angels are HUGE in the Bronx tonight. Figgins has four taps, and the home plate ump is about three seconds behind plays at the plate. Pudge ha tagged the plate and was halfway to the dugout before Mathis swung around to tag him....YER OUT!!!! :mrgreen:

Texeria has two hits, and the Angels lead 12-3..top of the 8th.

The thing about games like that is the Angels got a chance to learn a few things about some of their pitching. With a lead like that Scioscia was able to leave Garland in the game past 100 pitches to see how he would do. Then he was able to put in a young, unproven guy who ended up not even getting an out. Doing stuff like that rests the bullpen a bit (and after the CG from Lackey that was nearly a no-no) also has longer term benefits. The Angels have been propped up by pitching so often this year that games like this are really needed.

Great job for Santana..takes a shot to the arm, and gives up only five hits...one more than the Angels got...it's that one run that counts. =D> How many in a row road wins do they have? I know of the last 5.

On a 10 game road trip to three of the toughest teams and places to play, the Angels are now 7-1. They're winning the close games, they're blowing teams out, they're winning even when they're outhit. That's what a good team does. Great way to send a message to the people on the east coast, who're usually asleep by the time the Angel game is on. This is a good team.

A whole lot has happened between the above post and this one....20 hits, a Teixeria grand slam in the top of the 8th.....bottom of the 8th.....9-8 Yankees.

Damn!!!! If this was the last game the Angels play in the old Yankee Stadium, it isn't one they will forget for a while.

14-9 Yankees.
