Three burning questions all OC'ers have to be asking this morning. One, what will airlines charge us for next? Two, what else will someone see an image of Jesus in? Most importantly however being are the Angels already in trouble?
I'm here to answer all of the above for you. Airlines are charging for carry-ons now. Pathetic. Someone has seen Jesus in a tie-dye shirt. Can't you see just about ANYTHING in a tie-dye shirt if you look long and hard enough? Silly. As for the Anaheim Angels of Los Angeles, well not really in trouble, yet.
Dropping three of four to the Twins at home isn't the worst thing in the
world. The Twins are a good team that always seems to field a
competitive bunch and has given the Angels and the American League in
general trouble in the past. What's worrisome is components of this squad

has charged out of the gates with a .083 average. No home-runs or RBI's

Starting pitching, a

Only Jered Weaver was able to chalk-up a quality start, six innings or

Sure, there is more blame to go around, but it's early,
right? No reason to panic, correct? These are the Mighty Angels of
Anaheim by way of the Los Angeles Community. They will be alright, won't
The baseball season is longer than it need be and a bad
start is no reason to panic. A bad start is reason to panic if it turns
into a pattern, however. The fan and media microscope is now officially
out. Another lost series to the division leading A's will turn
mild-concern into full fledged panic.
It's a sports lovers
specialty, we do full-fledged panic better than most. Let's hope we don't
have to go there, Angel fans.
