    Improving the Six-Man Rotation

    I feel like both Shoemaker and JC Ramirez have the stuff and makeup to be quality high leverage relievers. With Ramirez's injury in particular, I wonder if there is any thought of using him in that role? I think Shoe will get another opportunity this year to be a starter, but if he doesn't take a step forward I could see him being used late in games starting as early as later this season. I think this increases the odds they add another starter before adding a high priced reliever.

    GA was always under appreciated here and probably by Angels fans in general. Instead of seeing him as smooth everyone seemed to see him as lazy. Top 5 Angel position player in my book.

    Chuck, I don't know if it's useful info or not but it's been an issue for some time but very intermittent. It would be there for a day or so and then not be a problem. Usually you could just back out of it or open another window and it wouldn't be an issue. But it's been persistent for the last 4-5 days and as someone else noted you can only leave the site to escape it.
  7. Is anyone else getting the relentless gift card winner pop up using Safari? It's pretty much making the site unusable for me. Considernetwork.com is what keep taking over the site.

    Somehow we're 24-23

    I'm hoping that Shoemaker has hit that time of the season where he dominates for 6-8 weeks. That would be a nice boost.

    Give up your hidden gems for Spring Training in AZ

    The Tex-Mex influence is heavy and they can't figure out how to do salsa or red sauce at all for some reason. It's not terrible food in general, it just pales in comparison to Southern California Mexican food.

    Arizona Wilderness Brewing Co. - way better than Four Peaks for both the beer and the food. Pizzeria Bianco - it lives up to the hype. The Farm at South Mountain is a cool place for lunch, especially with kids. Hash Kitchen - in Scottsdale for breakfast/brunch. Creative food and a kick ass Bloody Mary bar. Completely skip anything Mexican food wise in Phoenix if you grew up eating Mexican in California.

    Eating Out in Tempe

    Gilbert, not Glendale. It's close, even in traffic.

    Skip Four Peaks and head over to Arizona Wilderness Brewing Co, 10-15 mins from the stadium in Gilbert. Better beer, WAY better food. The Farm at South Mountain is a fun place for breakfast or lunch. Pizzeria Bianco in Downtown Phoenix is worth the drive but the waits this time of year are very long (2-3 hours at least) however the bar is a nice place to hang out and those hours pass quickly while snacking and drinking there. Oregano's is still good but it is a chain and has lost some of the quality over the last 10-15 years.

    TDawg, grab your lube.

    It was an amazing day. Also got a ball signed by Pujols. Got a pic with Arte (no, I didn't ask about his yacht) and an autograph from The Big Catorce. Best Spring Training experience we've had.

    C'mon you pervs. The tdawg reference was to how awesome Trout is all the way around. Not only is he god-like on the field but he appears to be a quality human being too. Kind of like when you see a super hot chick and then when you talk to her you find out she is kind and smart too. Chillax a little people.
