08:16 AM ET 06.25 | In four starts this season, Garrett Richards is 2-0 with a 1.63 ERA, and the Angels have won all four games, including Sunday's. And yet it might mean just another boarding pass to Salt Lake City, with Jerome Williams making his way back from the disabled list. It has happened before. "Jered Weaver was ... I want to say 4-0 with a 1.3 ERA or something like that and they sent him back," Richards said. Very good. Weaver was 4-0, 1.37 after a victory over Kansas City on June 13, 2006. When reigning Cy Young Award winner Bartolo Colon came off the DL, Weaver was sent back to the Beehive State, although he returned on July 3 and eventually got to 9-0. "Sometimes you just have too many guys," Richards said.

It is the same old story in baseball you never have to much but if you think you do I imagine you want have any problem finding a trade partner.

too many starter pitchers its allways a good combination, but you don't apply into the wrong segment, there are tough times and teams are never safe in pitching,,,

angels have a good weekend against the blues, now its time to focus in the american league opponents, the angels would need to endure some conssistancy at their lineup and in their pitching as well,,,

morales has being playing from both sides of the plate, hitting against lefties and righties i guess sciocia has turn loose mr morales in every game,,

pujols still thinking in the past, wrisp pujols hasn't done better, he either gets multiple hits without anybody on base, or don't hit at all when he got people on the base, or as he has being in the whole season hitting into a DP, sometimes it would be better for the halos to bench him, who knows? he may wakeup and stop playing the passive game that he has done soo many times,,,

bourjos could start hitting with some conssistancy i think all that bourjos needs its more at bats and more game played in order for him to be able to help the team,,,

weaver williams santana wilson haren could become a tough rotation only if the angels lineup wakesup at the same time and hit with conssistancy in every game, if this halos lineup perform as they know then the rotation should be more tough to beat, but like every other team its just too hard to expect the halos lineup to perform in such wonderfull way,,,

if the angels could trade for cole hamels the team would be a serious contender in every division,,

but sometimes its better to avoid trading prospects for a rental player, why? lets not forget texeira when the halos trade for him and got nothing at the end,,,

June 25, 2012  12:59 PM ET

if the angels pull a trade they should asured themselves in signing that particular player, but to trade for a player just for fun its not use!~!!

June 25, 2012  01:01 PM ET

angels still lacking in their hitting coach, should the halos trade for a hitting coach?? or should the halos start searching for a replacement in the near future for a hitting coach??

could the angels trade wells for yader molina?? they have the same type of amount in their contract, except that wells has 3 years left and molina has 5 years in his contract,,,

What kind of **** idiot thinks the **** Cardinals would trade Yadier **** Molina for Vernon **** Wells? What kind of goddam **** Japanese **** are you? I mean, it's one thing to post a dozen meaningless rants about the Angels, but it's another to say that the **** Cardinals would even consider dealing the best defensive catcher in baseball for an overpaid, washed-up **** piece of **** like Vernon Wells. You have a good heart Alacran, but pull your head out of your delusional ****.

That was worth the 15 frickin posts I had to read to get to yours. Atta boy.
