So the team was better with Torii's "leadership"? If I recall correctly they underachieved the last three years with him here. This is a terrible excuse for the teams play by Trumbo.

I hope you are right. I just don't see how this team can possibly be as bad as they are playing. With that said, I'm not going to panic, but if this is't turned around by June, I think Angel fans have a right to be pretty upset that this nonsense lingered for the first part of the season again.

Is this a joke? Entitled? A top 5 payroll HAS TO MAKE THE PLAYOFFS. How can anyone blame any Angel fan for being more than a little worried with this start after the last few years? Granted it's only a small sample size, but while I think this team will be better than last year, the pitching is not going to be enough to carry this team if the hitting continues to be super streaky.

I completely disagree with this assessment, if anything this team is looking EXACTLY the same as last year. These early losses just can't be explained away as "oh well it's early, we will pull out of it". History is the greatest predictor of the future, and if the last couple years have taught us anything it's that early holes are a bitch to get out of. Baseball is such a hard sport, if you get behind early, you find yourself pressing to get back , and furthermore you have less room for error to make up for injuries and slumps that will undoubtedly happen as the year goes on. We know this team is going to be streaky, the bullpen, the hitting, the pitching, its how this team has been for years. Another 6-14 start is unacceptable for a team with this much talent.

@Rick K. Agreed I'm totally pulling for St Louis, Pujols hasn't endeared himself to me at all.

@jr halo The ninth inning hit was just a bloop and Greinke was dealing without any signs of slowing down. Not to mention Ernesto threw 30 pitches last night. Sosh screwed this one up, there is no way around it, going to the bullpen in that spot was a horrible decision.

I once heard a wise man once say that a baseball manager is the most over rated position in all sports, and that they can rarely help a team in any great detail, however, if the philosophy over rides the talent, and players aren't allowed to succeed they can hurt even a great player. Unfortunately after 3 pretty lackluste,r uninspired years I think that is where the angels are now. Sometimes you just need a new voice and a new direction.
