The putrid defense has really masked how good Lackey and Santana are, and with Bartolo back, Jered coming, it should only improve. and Jeff Weaver suddenly started pitching a whole lot better when Jered showed up. But it's been largely going unnoticed because Horrible defense and limited run support has cost them a LOT of wins.
It's that pitching that's kept them within range in the West, so just another hitter (or two) and improved defense, and the team could go on a roll.
Yes, I like the Angels bullpen (at least setup/closer wise). I'm not a huge fan of their pitching but those pitchers sure sometimes totally own the opposing team.
The most likely scenerio for Jered to come back is if one of the pitchers is trade, IMO other than Colon.
