The Angels pitchers need to sit down with their hitters and forge a truce. When the Angels have pitched well in the last month, and it's happened often, the offense seems to go into hiding.

Yeah, I sure agree with Scioscia. Any MLB manager would pick a .200 hitter with no power numerous errors the last few games over a solid defender who has an at-bat per home ratio almost as good as Pujols. Does anyone in the Angels organization remember what Nap did while Vladdy was out. If Mathis is getting the starts because he fields better, why is Napoli not the DH when Vlad is struggling. Lackey and Weaver are not the team aces because Mathis is catching them. Mathis has a better pitcher ERA because he catches the teams 2 best pitchers. If Napoli caught Weaver and Lackey instead of Kazmir and Saunders his pitching ERA would be just as low. Oh yeah, and he would be batting around .280 with 30-40 homers and 90 -100 RBI's. Of course we can't have a catcher that hits better than Scioscia ever did during his catching days, while he is running the team. I hate to see the Angels exit the playoffs early again because of selfish decisions by their manager.
