This is going to be quite the interesting Easter for the Angels and their fans.  While most of us will be spending time with family and conducting Easter egg hunts, the Angels will be on a hunt of their own: the hunt for their offense.  Yes, despite the addition of Albert Pujols and a spring training where the lineup looked like a potential juggernaut, the Halo bats are just effective (and by effective, I mean ineffective) as they were last season.  And then, of course, there are the baserunning blunder galore.  I mean, wow with the level of idiocy the Angel baserunners have shown in two games thus far.  Alas, the answers they seek won’t just be lying out in the middle of the grass waiting to be scooped up and neatly placed in a basket.

Whether the Angels bats come alive or not, enjoy your Easter.  Spend time with your family.  Watch some kids find some eggs.  Or, my personal choice, wrap up that Easter brunch early, put the kid down for an early nap and take in a fine game of Angels baseball.
