Game Countdown - 8/20/09: Complete the Sweep - Angels @ Indians


Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim (73-45) @ Cleveland Indians (51-68)

Starters: LAA – John Lackey (8-5, 3.73 ERA)  CLE – Justin Masterson (3-4, 4.70 ERA)

Game Info: 4:05 PM PT TV-Fox Sports West, Radio-KLAA 830 AM, KFWB, KWKW 1330 AM

THREE Questions:

  • Can the Angels complete the sweep?
  • Can Lackey pick up win number 100 for his career?
  • How funny is it going to look if Jeff Mathis, who is barely hitting .200 starts amidst a line-up comprised totally over .300 hitters?  One of these things is not like the other ones.

TWO Predictions:

  • Call me crazy, but I am thinking the Angels shutout the Tribe yet again.
  • The newest Indian starter Justin Masterson doesn’t survive the third as he no longer has his the Red Sox magic over the Angels backing him up.

ONE Wish:

  • That I didn’t have a big day job interference today so that this could’ve been better (and not so damn early), sorry everyone.

ZERO Tolerance for… Juan Rivera in the three-hole.  I don’t know what Sosh has planned with the line-up tonight, but I really hope he isn’t still on crack and going with Rivera hitting third and Hunter fifth or sixth.  It just doesn’t make any sense… at all.  Knock it off.
