09:54 AM ET 08.01 | Ten minutes before Saturday's trading deadline, a stern-looking GM Kenny Williams walked into the lunch are of the White Sox locker room and motioned Gordon Beckham into a closed-door meeting with manager Ozzie Guillen. "I had Ozzie close the door and sat Gordon down in the chair and said, 'Well, I would really like to say one thing to you before I get into the nuts and bolts of this stuff,'" Williams said. "'That at-bat you had last night, where you pushed across that run, it was one of the best at-bats you had all year. I just want to say nice job.' "Then I shook his hand, and he said, 'That's it?' And I said 'That's it.' He had a sigh of relief. Ozzie had a sigh of relief and started cursing at me."

the angels need real bad a new and very aggressive hitting coach, not just now but for a long time, it sad to see this halos going hitless and lose a game by one to nothing, or two to one, all because can't score runs it looks like they share the same medicine with the dodgers,can the angels change their game plan? do the halos forgot how to play small ball? or maybe they can bring a real monkey to bite their tail at hitter perhaps he can hit the ball by accident and drive some more runs!
