    Really surprised by the Angels’ pitching. You wouldn’t expect Weaver, Haren, Wilson and Greinke to get lit up by a lineup like the Rays in four successive nights. Most teams would kill just to have one of them. Maybe the Rays are just a much better team that I gave them credit for?

    This must be the road trip to end all road trips. They get victimized by King Felix for a perfect game and then come from 8-0 behind to win 10-8 against Wilson last night. Crazy game.

  2. bruceb August 19th, 2012 at 4:30 pm

    Like our left-hander lineup a lot more than our right. Least we don’t have to put Jones in the four hole.

  3. jacksquat August 19th, 2012 at 4:38 pm

    Four lhh in a row! Joe must be in a cold sweat! :grin:

  4. Tabbert August 19th, 2012 at 4:41 pm

    man that lineup looks a lot better with chavez in it.

  5. blake August 19th, 2012 at 4:47 pm

    “I can’t imagine Hughes or Joba will have much trade value this winter but that Hughes for Choo trade Sherman suggests would be awesome. ”

    yea I would do that no question….but I think Hughes may have more trade value that it seems.

    He won 18 games in 2010 and is on pace to win 16 this year….now pitcher wins doesn’t mean everything but when he healthy he’s pretty good….and he pitches in one of the worst parks and divisions in the game for his style…..sorta like folks figure Headley will perform better outside Petco….you could say the same with Hughes out of YS and the AL east.

    I think some NL team could view him as a frontline guy in the right park…..if you turn some of his homers into fly balls then he’s a different guy….still only 26 years old.

  6. bruceb August 19th, 2012 at 4:47 pm

    AndrewMarchand Now, Joba is out early throwing the football.

    Hitters have been seeing his pitches like a football lately!

  7. blake August 19th, 2012 at 4:48 pm

    The Yanks have been better vs LHP than RHP for the last couple of years….but with Chavez and Ibanez bigger parts of the offense now….with Tex and ARod hurting….it’s the opposite now…..the lineup looks and functions much better against RHP right now than lefties.

  8. bruceb August 19th, 2012 at 4:49 pm

    Four lhh in a row! Joe must be in a cold sweat!

    Five if you include Swisher.

  9. jmills August 19th, 2012 at 4:51 pm

    Just here cooking and musicing it up avec la radio – 14 year old girl about to be the youngest to swim lake Ontario – great feel good story for charity.

  10. Tabbert August 19th, 2012 at 4:52 pm

    blake-

    I was just thinking about that earlier. We use to hope and pray we would be facing a lefty so we could go to down on opposing teams. Now… its like oh crap were facing a lefty… that means no chavez.

    What happens if Chavez stays hot by the time arod comes back? Does Arod play DH and chavez go to third? I would have to think that ibanez is going to lose a lot more time once arod comes back. I just hope we can find ibanez some meaningful at bats come october.. bc the dude has a flare for the dramatic.

  11. jmills August 19th, 2012 at 4:55 pm

    Tabbert – nice problem to have my friend :)

  12. Tabbert August 19th, 2012 at 4:57 pm

    Jmills- Yup. lol.

  13. Tabbert August 19th, 2012 at 4:58 pm

    Its pretty crazy to think about deep and talented this team is. Yes, we have flaws like every other team… but this is still a special group. Honestly… I feel like we should put up a good amount of runs and win with ease without AROD or TEX in the lineup. Think about that.

  14. jmills August 19th, 2012 at 5:05 pm

    Trabbert, I know, you guys have had your share of injuries, but to all of baseball’s acknowledgement,….you plow on.

  15. blake August 19th, 2012 at 5:05 pm

    “Now… its like oh crap were facing a lefty… that means no chavez.”

    pretty much….problem is that Cano hasn’t handled lefties as well this year (.242 .292 .346 .638) and Jones hasn’t really done his job against them for the most part either ( .212. 274 .455 .729).

    So with Chavez and Ibanez, and now Ichiro being big parts of the lineup and with Tex and Arod being out they really don’t have a lot of punch right now vs LHP……

    hate to say it because I don’t want stir up trouble but the Yanks sure could use this slash vs LHP in their lineup right now…..344 /.394 /.544 /.938……especially when it comes with an overall of .310 /.363 /.451 /.814 in the 2nd half.

  16. jmills August 19th, 2012 at 5:11 pm

    Blake, in the end its a bit of a crapshoot, but at least you guys are in. Look at the Angels, Baltimore and Mark Belanger might beat them out. :)

  17. blake August 19th, 2012 at 5:15 pm

    jmills,

    yea I’ll take it however we can get it….I still think your Jays are on the rise…I know folks have been saying that for awhile….but they really got devastated with injuries this year and not much you can do about that…..

  18. m August 19th, 2012 at 5:17 pm

    What’s up with the Sox? Text message calling for a mtg with ownership re: Valentine came from Gonzalez’s cell phone. But Shoppach was the one behind it?

  19. tucker August 19th, 2012 at 5:18 pm

    Chavez is a better defensive third baseman than ARod at this point, so Chavy should get some starts at third after ARod returns.

  20. jmills August 19th, 2012 at 5:21 pm

    Blake, thanks , but am enjoying baseball same as ever;however….we do hold thangs to look forward to! In the meantime, I am pulling for a big party in October for Lohud bloggers.

  21. Nick in SF August 19th, 2012 at 5:21 pm

    Most of the MLF seems to have gone underground, so the slash line shouldn’t be stirring up too much trouble.

  22. blake August 19th, 2012 at 5:24 pm

    I think Chavy and Alex will split time at 3B and DH when Alex cimes back in whatever ratio Joe thinks will keep them healthiest.

  23. Giuseppe Franco August 19th, 2012 at 5:25 pm

    There was nothing wrong with A-Rod’s defense this season.

  24. blake August 19th, 2012 at 5:27 pm

    Angels getting hammered again….wow.

  25. jmills August 19th, 2012 at 5:30 pm

    Nick in SF – watched BULLITT,……….again last night – Steve made everyone on the set promise to say he did all his own driving,…he didn’t . McQueen was wrecking too many cars, and they had to have a competant stand in.

  26. The Return of Stoneburner August 19th, 2012 at 5:31 pm

    Montero now 1 for his last 18 ABs :) :)

    And he is batting around .269 for August – with just 1 BB in 50ish ABs :)

    Plus – how does he still have only 16 doubles – if he is such a special hitter – he should be getting those regardless of whether he is belting homeruns (which he is not) or not – – – –

    :) :)

  27. Tyler August 19th, 2012 at 5:32 pm

    Scioscia has to take the fall if the Angels miss the playoffs right? There is no way Moreno will be happy after finally paying for a big bat.

  28. Nick in SF August 19th, 2012 at 5:36 pm

    Bullit is good, but I prefer The Great Escape. Did he do his own motorcycle stunts?

    “Scioscia has to take the fall if the Angels miss the playoffs right? There is no way Moreno will be happy after finally paying for a big bat.”

    Nah but he should….hes been a faux-genius for years.

  31. Tyler August 19th, 2012 at 5:45 pm

    Blake-

    I would think they have to do some move, even just to do one for the sake of change…. they don’t really have many movable players. Trout/Truombo/Weaver aren’t and shouldn’t go anywhere. The rest of the guys are bad contracts.

  32. Nick in SF August 19th, 2012 at 5:46 pm

    The rally monkey might be the scapegoat.

  33. jmills August 19th, 2012 at 5:48 pm

    Nick, it looks like he didn’t. Rosy, I hope your team wins a World Series in the not too distant future for your betterment!

  34. blake August 19th, 2012 at 5:50 pm

    Basically the Angels rotation has underperformed big time exceot for weaver an wilson at times…….and their lineup isnt particularly deep…..and their pen kinda sucks…..its a top heavy team but still they have no business missing the playoffs with that rotation

  35. Tabbert August 19th, 2012 at 5:52 pm

    I wouldn’t count the angels out just yet. They never really had a great record due to their really bad start. Now they are just dealing with the same type of funk the yankees just got out of. They are like 2 back from a playoff spot. One would assume they will get hot again and the wins will start coming. Their biggest problem is that they have to deal with the rangers and the unexpected A’s. I honestly don’t think their lineup is as good as many people hype it to be. Trumbo has cooled down a bit, and outside of trout and pujols… that lineup isn’t too much to write home about. Still think they should be okay.

  36. Tabbert August 19th, 2012 at 5:56 pm

    Larry Rothschild does not get enough credit. All throughout baseball you hear about big name pitchers having massive slumps, not pitching up to their ability, and not just the big name pitchers. We see a lot of rotations out there with guys WAY under performing. What about the Yanks? Nope. Sure… Nova and Hughes have their hiccups but that is mostly because of youth. Even then our young guys don’t struggle for too many outings in a row. I don’t think its a fluke that the yankees have had so much success from within the last two years when it comes to their pitching.

  37. blake August 19th, 2012 at 5:56 pm

    Personally Im hoping the Angels fire Scocisa and he comes to Boston and small balls it….that would be fun.

  38. Tyler August 19th, 2012 at 5:58 pm

    Rothschild has been light years better than Eiland, World Series or not.

  39. blake August 19th, 2012 at 5:58 pm

    Rothschild is one of the best in the business.

  40. jmills August 19th, 2012 at 6:03 pm

    Tabbert, I agree with you, its hardly a fluke.

  41. tucker August 19th, 2012 at 6:05 pm

    Who would have predicted the Angels troubles even with the most productive rookie in years. They still have time to turn it around, but man ..

  42. CompassRosy August 19th, 2012 at 6:07 pm

    Thanks, jmills.
    It will be good for the city, when it happens, for sure.

  43. jacksquat August 19th, 2012 at 6:08 pm

    I have mixed feelings about Rothschild.

    I think he/they emphasize throwing hard/strikeouts, and the changeup too much. Meanwhile the two seamer doesn’t seem to be worth much to them and the split seems to be banned unless you arrived with one already. It took forever for them to give Phelps a shot, no doubt because he doesn’t throw hard, even though he always had excellent command and at least 4 pitches.

  44. ron August 19th, 2012 at 6:08 pm

    I wan’t to see hughes pitch the rest of the year before i’m willing to trade him.
    He said he threw more changeups,more to rh hitters,wich he never does in his last start.
    He said he was stubborn all this time,so let’s see if he has changed.

    Looking at the brooks pitchfx site,hughes threw 106 pitches,29 changeups wich is more than 25%.
    Phenominal amount for hughes.

  45. jmills August 19th, 2012 at 6:10 pm

    Compass, it was just that nasty bad luck you didn’t win prior. Keep on keeping on !

  46. jacksquat August 19th, 2012 at 6:15 pm

    Baltimore won and the Rays are about to. Good thing we have our ace on the mound tonight.

  47. Joe from Long Island August 19th, 2012 at 6:20 pm

    Tabbert – I agree, Rothschild is such a quiet guy, he doesn’t get the credit he deserves.

    if angels miss playoffs it will be a team/organizational effort. can’t understand their rotation losing to rays this weekend. makes no sense.

  48. austinmac August 19th, 2012 at 6:22 pm

    The Rays are hitting and pitching. The division race is far from over.

  50. tomingeorgia August 19th, 2012 at 6:34 pm

    Mr. mick,
    If a DH gets hurt and is removed from the game, can he be replaced with another DH, or does the pitcher have to hit?

  51. jmills August 19th, 2012 at 6:34 pm

    I agree, I predict good things for Hughes if he continues this….I still don’t understand why he doesn’t throw a split….

  54. UnKnown August 19th, 2012 at 6:56 pm

    Surprised to hear that this will be the first time Granderson has ever batted clean up for the Yankees.

    I would think with the power the guy has that it would have happened at least once before.

  55. UnKnown August 19th, 2012 at 6:57 pm

    Lineup also isn’t the same without Tex obviously. Really stinks that he couldn’t play in this series especially because he has been torching the Sux this year.

  56. I Am Winning August 19th, 2012 at 7:00 pm

    I don’t get it, but let me try and understand. If Hughes has a great season, we keep him; while if Hughes has has a bad season he trade him? For what? Another AAA starter? We won’t get much out of Hughes if his numbers get worse. So there really is no point in trading him. Either try him in the bullpen or send him to the minors.

    Arod catches everything he gets to. He just doesn’t move like he used to. Chavy has better range and was a serial gold glove winner in his prime.

    As Blake said, they will both get a lot of starts to keep them both fresh, and hopefully, healthy.

  58. tucker August 19th, 2012 at 7:08 pm

    Over the past 10 years Coach has grown revenues yearly by 18.2%; operating income rose by 20.1% and net income grew by 21.6%, capturing market share of more than 38% in the luxury handbag market. Revenue growth accelerated after the financial crisis of 2008. Increased cost of goods, higher marketing expenses and distribution expenses led to the decline in gross margins that Coach enjoyed from 2004 to 2007. The company improved its gross margins after the financial crisis but never reached levels it enjoyed earlier. Figure1 shows the revenue for the company since 2004.
