Halo Headlines: Trumbo Done For the Season, Hunter Losing Sleep Over Angels’ Choke Job, Eckstein Returns to Angel Stadium

The September 27th, 2011 edition of daily news for the LA Angels including Trumbo out for the season with a broken foot, Hunter can’t sleep after the weekend choke job, Eckstein returned to Angel Stadium for first pitch duties and much more…

The Story: Mark Trumbo will miss the rest of the season with a stress fracture in his right foot.

The Monkey Says: Well, you have to give the kid credit for trying to tough it out.  Obviously he won’t reach 30 homers now, which is too bad, even if it is an arbitrary milestone.

The Story: Torii Hunter is losing sleep over the nightmarish loss to Oakland.

The Monkey Says: He isn’t the only waking up in the middle of the night screaming.  That loss is going to stick with every Angel fan for a long, long time.

The Story: David Eckstein returns to Angel Stadium for first pitch duties.

The Monkey Says: There is no truth to the rumors that he spent most of the game standing next to Alexi Amarista so that he finally could feel tall.

The Story: Cam Bedrosian and Fabio Martinez Mesa are the most disappointing Angel prospects of 2011.

The Monkey Says: It strikes me as unfair to label someone a disappointment because they got hurt, but those two were definitely well-thought of kids that had high expectations entering the season only to end up missing the entire campaign.  If I had to pick someone, I’d probably pick Hank Conger since he failed to make the leap to the majors like many had hoped and expected.

The Story: True Grich assesses the morning after the Angels’ crushing loss on Sunday.

The Monkey Says: It is pretty obvious that even the most seasoned of Angel fans is going to be trying to cope with the disappointment of this season for months, which is really kind of strange considering the low expectations most of us had going into the season.
