Angels 14, Yankees 8

Some series you simply mourn over, awaiting their end.

In the seventies, playing the Red Sox in June was sort of like that. One simply waited for Yaz's three-run homer, or for Pudge's three-run triple off the top of the monster, or for Rice to fist the ball over Chambliss for another two-out run to score.

Just get the series over with, damnit.

Yeah, that's where we are with the Angels.

Welcome to the club. We here in the desert were also shut out of the Yankee/Angels and had to endure the Cardinals/Cubs, which I had no interest in watching. However, it was probably merciful that we didn't see the game. This series is turning into a nightmare but I'm not surprised. It's the ANGELS!
The best line of the day is from George King III of the NYPost:

"If, as the Yankees want you to believe, Joba Chamberlain is young and learning to be a starter, does that mean age has wrapped a blanket around Andy Pettitte?"
