Worst cleanup hitter in the league

More than 40,000 Angels fans enjoyed some free Hooters wings, thanks to the "worst cleanup hitter in the league," according to some ESPN jerk. Who, surprisingly, wasn't Bill Simpson. Obviously Garret Anderson was reading Keri's slam-job and responded the way he normally does. Picking on Anderson, at this stage of his career, is rather easy. Though some Angels fans have been doing it for years, even when he hit 35 home runs in a season. There was a time when Anderson might have been the most feared hitter in the Angels lineup, and those days may be over, but it's good to see the old dog still getting busy once in a while.

Enjoying these types of games is what makes being a baseball fan worthwhile, even if it is against one of the bottom-feeding, non-playoff contenders. Not sure this is evidence that the Angels have enough bats to win the whole thing. But that's for another day as the wings are still hot, the Hooters girls have caked on too much makeup, and the beer is plenty cold.

Glad to see THN is back to being an Angels blog. It's OK, as the Super Bowl Buzz Kill isn't funny this year anyway.

He's a busy guy, and he's doing it for free, so it's no problem.

Plus, most people are afraid to post now that Lil' Hater just dropped that MOAB.
