That would be my early call. Them and Oakland.Wingack said:
I love Skaggs and Santiago. The Angels rotation goes five deep. No other rotation in the West does that. And they are the healthiest team so far. So they are my pick.derekson said:
I think Oakland will be better. The Angels' pitching doesn't impress me, especially with Weaver losing so much velocity. He's been successful without a big fastball, but there's a point where even a finesse guy can't get it done. He's practically a right-handed Jamie Moyer at this point. Grabbing Santiago and Skaggs in that trade might be enough to save their rotation though. Certainly before that, their rotation was ridiculously thin.
Nit picking here, but there was actually 1 out...which makes the decision much, much dumber in my opinion.derekson said:Somehow the A's managed to squander the bottom of the 8th inning despite Donaldson hitting a ball off the CF fence with 2 runners on base. Daric Barton made a Daniel Nava-esque base running blunder at 2nd, going back to tag with 0 outs instead of being halfway and prepared to score.

You left out the part about him flipping the bat, watching it go out and then proceeding to Cadillac his way around the bases.
I'm skeptical that they've got enough pitching.Wingack said:

Rough Carrigan said:Jesus, watch Kelly Johnson, the yankees' third baseman. He's like an overcompetitive husband in a mixed doubles tennis match poaching every shot from his wife. He just ran right in front of Jeter to try and get a ball and deflected it away.
