Kevin Johnson

2

In perusing recent Bees box scores to see how Trout is doing, I noticed that Kevin Johnson (who pitched well in relief in Spring Training) was recently promoted from Arkansas. I don't know if this was a temporary thing due to injuries or as a result of Carpenter's promotion to the big club, but he'd appear to be another bullpen candidate if Isringhausen, Takahashi & Jepsen don't turn things around quickly.

Roy Oswalt for the Rotation?

10

The Philadelphia Phillies declined their team option on Roy Oswalt. He's getting up there in years, and has never pitched in the AL; but he might be a better option than relying on some combination of Williams, Chatwood & Richards for 2/5 of the rotation. Would a 2-year, $18M deal get it done?

Disaster Averted - Betemit to the Tigers

This is the third time Betemit has been dealt at or near the trade deadline. He hasn't helped anyone yet.

Houston Astros to Join the A.L. West?

10

"Sources," a/k/a Buster Olney's butt, suggest that one aspect of current MLB labor negotiations involves the Houston Astros joining the A.L. West.

Quakes Advance, Face Storm

10

The Quakes beat the High Desert Mavericks 7-1 on Thursday night. Mike Trout was 1-4 (2B), with a walk. The Quakes advance to face the Padres' Cal League affiliate Lake Elsinore Storm in a best-of-five second round matchup. They'll have at least one more home game on Monday, perhaps the final chance to see Mike Trout play locally until he's with the big club.

Hit Efficiency

For the last several years, the Angels have been a good hitting team, putting up a collective team batting average that is among the best in the league.  This year is no exception, as they lead the...

New Concession at the Big A?

2

I'd love it if Senora Alvino would open up a concession stand at the stadium. I have no doubt she'd serve up the best eats around. Perhaps the Halos need to re-sign Vlad for this very purpose.

Angels Rookie Hazing Pics?

Do we have any update on the Angels' rookie hazing? Today, the L.A. Times had pictures of the Choakland Ass' rookies in drag. Where are our halos? Pattimelt?

HK-47 - done for the year?

Within this notebook is the suggestion that Howie Kendrick might not make it back for the playoffs. This is very discouraging news, to say the least.

Halos Add Another Arm

11

The Angels called up RHP Kevin Jepsen from AAA SLC, which was eliminated from the PCL playoffs yesterday. I believe Jepsen was on the Olympic team. He has a pretty good K-rate; apparently, injuries have held him back a bit.

Forbes magazine has just issued its list of MLB team valuations.  Arte's team came in 6th, at a cool $500 million.  Not bad; I believe he paid under $200 million when he purchased the team in...
