The PED crucible, which we hoped would be microscopic by now, just won’t go away. It’s turned into a twisted game show of “Name That Cheat.”
Howie Kendrick hit his second home run of the game in the 11th inning and finished with four RBIs, leading the Angels to a 5-4 victory over the Rangers on Tuesday night.
Albert Pujols homered twice to offset another tough day for Josh Hamilton in his second game back in Texas, and the Los Angeles Angels beat the Rangers 8-4 Saturday.
Pujols, Trout, Hamilton, Trumbo. Sounds pretty scary right? I would have to be crazy to say that the Rangers have just as good of a lineup – wouldn’t I? I’d have to be sippin on that Ranger Red Kool-Aid…
If you’re fantasy baseball draft hasn’t happened already, it’s going to be happening soon. Here’s a look at the top five players at each position.
Simply put, Mike Trout was the best player in the game in 2012.
The Angels are getting closer to signing Josh Hamilton, according to CBS Sports. Acquiring the former Rangers slugger would likely push Peter Bourjos to the bench.
Derek Holland pitched seven innings of six-hit ball, Geovany Soto hit a late two-run homer, and the Rangers hurt the Angels with a 6-2 victory on Wednesday night.
Elvis Andrus had a game-ending two-run single in the 10th inning, and the Texas Rangers rallied from six runs down to beat the Los Angeles Angels on Wednesday night.
Bobby Wilson hit his first homer of the season leading off the seventh inning against Matt Harrison on Sunday night, sending the Rangers to the showers in a 7-4 loss to the Angels.
Somewhere along the line, Josh Hamilton, one of the most feared hitters in baseball and a man of faith, has become Major League Baseball’s version of Tim Tebow.
This was the series that we in the media, and we as fans though would be a good test of where the Rangers and Angels are at this early point — 35 games into the season. With it, two questions — are the Rangers that good and are the Angels that bad?
