Point/Counterpoint - Wanted: A New Focal Point for Angels Fan’s Anger and Disappointment

By Glen McKee and Nate Trop, Columnist/Satirist Yesterday, Angels fans woke up to the good news that Joe Blanton had been released, thereby finally eliminating any chance we’d see him on the mound during the regular season.  Well, at least on the mound in an Angels uniform – fate will probably have him throwing a shutout against us sometime soon.  It’s nothing...

Point/Counterpoint: Should Erick Aybar Bat Leadoff?

Absolutely! By Glen McKee, Columnist & Satirist It’s a fact that your leadoff hitter will get more at-bats than anybody else in the lineup, over a period of time.  You’d think that means your best hitter – MIKE TROUT! – should fill that spot, and indeed that makes a certain amount of sense.  However, I think that this year, as with last year, we’re gonna...

Can one swing turn Aybar's season around?

LOS ANGELES Wednesday was beginning to look like just another miserable night at the plate for Erick Aybar -- and there have been too many of them this season. Pop fly, double play grounder, fly ball out. Aybar's batting average had fallen to .218 by the time he came to bat in the ninth inning at Dodger Stadium. There was no reason to think this would be any different. But...

Albert Pujols throws glove at Erick Aybar

Erick Aybar apparently doesn’t understand the famous Albert Pujols Intensity yet. If he did, he clearly would not have participated in such tomfoolery as smacking Pujols in his elbow/foreman rather than his hand during the postgame High 5 line. In response, an angry Pujols retaliated. Hat tip: RedditSo, just for the record, in an Angels uniform Pujols has now...
