Jose Guillen is NUTS!

10

Summary of the last paragraph of an article about his trade to the Giants: "Guillen struggled with injuries in Kansas City... he was out for weeks after a knee injury sustained while putting on a shin guard and missed several days of 2009 spring training after deciding to rip out an ingrown toenail with a pair of pliers."

The Angels logo is unfortunately spot-on.

Probably a stupid question, but...

... is there a scenario under which we could get Chone Figgins back without paying more than we think he's worth? He seems absolutely miserable with Seattle. The Mariners fans (and most likely...

Chone Figgins: Least Valuable Player

7

Jon Heyman hands out his mid-season awards. I wish we could get Chone back, and I bet he does, too. LVP (Least Valuable Player) Chone Figgins, Mariners 2B. For $36 million, he's provided very little. He's hitting .235 with a pathetic .608 OPS. Maybe it was all too much -- the new team, new ballpark, new position and new salary. Such a waste. Had a good thing going with the Angels.

Frustrated Figgins says he's not

10

Chone Figgins is not thrilled at being dropped to #9 in the order, especially since he's been hitting much better of late. Craig Calcaterra notes: "Figgins had three hits last night, so surely Wakamatsu thinks the move motivated him, but in reality Figgins has been hitting well for a while now. Prior to yesterday Figgins was 20-for-68 (.293) with 10 walks and four steals in his last 19 games, producing a .294/.380/.353 line that basically matches his .288/.361/.383 career mark. So after sticking with a legitimately struggling Figgins in the second spot for two months, Wakamatsu actually decided to move him to the bottom of the order exactly when he started producing like normal again." I wonder if Chone has an "un-do" clause in his contract????

No Adenhart patch?

I've been calling the team store every few days to see if they have the patches yet. They usually say they are working with the family to decide which charity gets the proceeds. Today they said...
