Angels in April, 2
Now this is more like it. Escobar was nothing short of brilliant last night, with full command of his five pitches. That was a 10K run against a very pesky Minnesota line-up. The offense lit it up, as well. And where would the Angels be without Chone Figgins? He is by far the most valuable player on that team - as he goes, so the offense goes. Kotchman was productive, even if he didn't do anything to boost his anemic batting average, with two productive outs that led to runs. So, the Halos are at .500 at this early, early stage, and I think things are looking solid, if not spectacular. But I'll take solid for the time being.
