I certainly hope Jered stays up... lord knows my team with Harden and Sheets on the DL needs more starts like tonight!


Ervin Sanatan is a quality pitcher?...I must have missed that memo.


He's pretty serviceable. Certainly good enough to be starting in the bigs as a #4 guy as he is now, and with improvement he could be a pretty darn good #3 or low-end #2. I bet the Yanks would love to have him in their rotation right now! :-b
Is there anything fluffier than a cloud?
If there is, I don't want to know about it.

His delivery is very deceptive and he has great control, pitchers like that usually do very well the first few times around the league. He should be pretty good regardless, but I'd say that's a big reason for his success so far.

Definitely a sticky situation for the Angels, but if he goes out and pitches well against TB (the weakest team against righties) next week, what do you tell the kid who's just gone 3-0 with a miniscule ERA and is striking out a batter/inning. "Well Jered, you've pitched lights out and have really helped this ballclub, but we're gunna have to send you back down to AAA until we have another injury." I just can't see that happening. Basically, he's auditioning for a spot in the rotation until Colon is back and TB might be his last shot before that.

So if they keep Weaver up, who goes down? Santana?

The one thing that stuck with me most was his control. Seemed like whenever he wanted to go low and outside with his fastball, it was right on the money. He keeps his WHIP down, we're gunna be in for a nice little ride this year, assuming he sticks around. One particular at bat I remember was against Peralta in the 1st. Down in the count 3-0, throws 2 fastballs right on the corner of the plate and then strikes Peralta out with a curveball in the dirt on a 3-2 count...Confidence.

This is why I'm not a manager for the Angels and I just speculate. ;-)

I think either his brother will go to the bull pen or he will be sent back down to AAA. Ervin though he has a 4.5+ ERA, has a 1.24 WHIP which to me says he is pitching well and just needs to do a little better with runners on. The rest of the rotation is fine and doesn't deserve to be taken out.

What is the angels healthy rotation?

Lackey, Colon, Escobar, Santana, Jeff Weaver (not in that order obviously)?

I say, brother Jeff goes to bullpen, some other dude, not listed above, goes down.

If Jered keeps pitching good, there is no way he's going down.

I am going to say Santana goes to pen for now, until the Jeff gets blown up a few more times.

For those of you who call Jered a #4 now & potentially a very good #3, I think you guys are selling the big 6'7 Dream Weaver Take 2, short.

He seems to have very good #2 written all over him.

I have Jered and "Fatolo." This situation is very intriguing to me.
