Game 152, Mariners at Angels

Wooo! New starter! Feierabend versus Weaver!

Standard old new no-Sexson, Vidro-in-#6 hole lineup. The Angels’ magic number is three for the AL West title, so they won’t clinch tonight — and it’d be nice to force them to do that against some other team. Call me a grump.

(I believe New York’s number is 5, and they’re not playing tonight)

    Well, they have Broussard’s rights for 2008. A Broussard/Vidro platoon where Vidro does time at DH/1B/2B might not be TOO awful.

    From Baker’s story. Interesting that Vlad’s never charged a mound before, given how often pitchers must get mad enough to throw at him.

    He’d never charged a mound before, nor even stepped toward a pitcher until Campillo threw toward him.

    “The difference is, if I’m going to get hit, that’s fine, but please stay away from my head,” Guerrero said. “And when you do it twice, that’s enough. Also saw what they did to my catcher [Mathis], that’s what really got me going. Hit me all you want. Not near my head.”

    Campillo appeared in the clubhouse while reporters were interviewing other players and left before they could ask him any questions. At least a few of Campillo’s Seattle teammates were upset by his pitch to Guerrero, because of how bad it looked. They also may have feared retaliation against Seattle’s hitters later in this four-game series.

    I’m surprised that he and Clemens have never gotten into it, given the way The Rocket likes to headhunt.

    I never wish for players to be hurt, but in the case of headhunters, I’m often tempted. A deliberate fastball to the head should be criminal.
