The Story: The facts on the Kendrys Morales surgery.
The Monkey Says: Don’t even bother clicking on that link, the facts are few and far between. Essentially, there is going to be surgery, but we don’t know when our how bad it will be. What we do know is the Angels need to address what they are going to do now that they know for sure that they won’t be getting Kendrys back in 2011. I’ll try and figure that out in a post later today.
The Monkey Says: Amazingly, this was written before the big news broke. One can’t help but wonder if the team might not suffer a similar depression now that they have lost Kendrys again. On the other hand, they never got him back, so how upset can they really be?
The Monkey Says: Losing Wolviriguez is no big deal, getting Jepsen back could be though. The Angels badly need someone to displace Rodney as the righty setup man and Jepsen has the talent to do so even though he actually hasn’t been that good in the minors. One could even argue that Michael Kohn deserved the promotion more, but Jepsen does have a better history.
The Monkey Says: Only Ozzie could say those things and get away with it. His team is terrible, but he is a loveable scamp.
The Monkey Says: I dare you to find two guys who are as good at what they do and still so humble as Haren and Weaver are.
The Monkey Says: So there really is nothing Mathis can do to get benched, eh? I understand taking things slowly with Conger, but why not give Wilson a shot at Mathis’ at-bats?
The Monkey Says: Remember how some people were disappointed that the Angels waived Frandsen this winter? Yeah, so….
