Joe Saunders a key to the success of the Los Angeles Angels

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, Throwing Well, Weekly Results by chinmusic on Wednesday 19 September 2007 at 9:37 am

The Angels pretty much have the American League West wrapped up as they are 89-62 which has them 8.5 games ahead of the Mariners with 11 games left in the season. With the ineffectiveness of both Bartolo Colon and Ervin Santana this season the Angels wouldn’t be where they are without lefty starter Joe Saunders. Saunders has started 16 games this season and he is 8-3 with a 3.82 ERA and a 1.46 WHIP. In 96.2 innings this season he has allowed 111 hits, walked 30 batters and whiffed 60. Saunders will probably be the #4 starter in the playoffs for the Angels.

The Los Angeles Angels are closing in fast for the American League West Title

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, Weekly Results by chinmusic on Wednesday 12 September 2007 at 1:14 pm

The Angels are sitting with a 85-59 record which has them in first place in the American League West by 9.5 games over the Seattle Mariners. Look for the Angels to rest a lot of veteran players the last week or so to have them fresh for the playoffs in October. The Angels appear to be in really good shape for the playoffs as starting rotations shrink and John Lackey, Kelvim Escobar and Jered Weaver will be a tough match up for any team in the American League Playoffs.

Garrett Anderson is on fire for the Los Angeles Angels

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, Playing Well by chinmusic on Wednesday 12 September 2007 at 1:02 pm

A lot of people were starting to write off the 35-year old Garrett Anderson after he was injured in the first half of the season and he started a little slow. But, he has proven all of his skeptics wrong with a monster second half of the season that has kick started the whole offense. Anderson has played in 55 games in the second half of the season and he is 64 for 213 (.300 avg, .908 OPS) with 32 runs scored, 12 homers and 57 RBIs. His strong bat had been a huge boost to the offense because it forces teams to pitch to Vladimir Guerrero who’s hitting right in front of him. Anderson has now played in 95 games this season and he’s hitting .294 with 58 runs scored, 15 homers and 72 RBIs. The Angels need him to keep swinging like he is right now thru October.

The Los Angeles Angels are pulling away in the American League West

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, Weekly Results by chinmusic on Tuesday 4 September 2007 at 11:24 am

The Angels beat up on the Mariners last week to give themselves a little cushion in the American League West. The Angels are now 81-56 which has them 6.5 games up on the Mariners in the American League West. The Angels are thought of as a pitching team but they have scored 711 runs (5.2 per game) which is the 4th highest total in the American League. Vladimir Guerrero is the leader on offense as he is hitting .326 with 78 runs scored, 22 homers and 110 RBIs so far this season. Orlando Cabrera is having a career season hitting right in front of Guerrero in the lineup. He is hitting .312 with 91 runs scored, 8 homers, 77 RBIs and 18 stolen bases. Chone Figgins is the leadoff man and he got off to a slow start this season but he is smoking hot right now. He is hitting .335 with 70 runs scored, 3 homers, 49 RBIs and 34 stolen bases. The pitching has been solid as always led by John Lackey, Kelvim Escobar and Francisco Rodriguez. Lackey is 16-8 with a 3.26 ERA as he is stepping up this season. But, Kelvim Escobar has been even better than Lackey so far this season. Escobar is 15-7 with a 2.99 ERA this year which is easily the best season of his career. K-Rod has been finishing up whatever the Angels starters get to him as he is 5-2 with 33 saves and a 2.86 ERA.
