So many great answers.  This thread is an example of how great this board is.  It had the obvious answers, the Tim Lincecum answers.  It had 80's reference answers like McCaskill, and Romanick and Jack Lazorko.  It had movie answers.  It had utility infielder answers.  It had answers I didn't even understand and I've followed the team pretty closely for 35 plus years.  My two personal favorites, Monee Davis (or however she tries to spell her name) and 50 Cent.  I also liked TR Bryden.

Nolasco has given up perhaps more HRs than any other AL (or perhaps MLB) pitcher this year.

but, I think he gets a bad rap here -- we didn't spend much to acquire Nolasco. We got him to be our fourth/ fifth starter and to eat some innings.

He's done that for us this and with most of the expected rotation on the DL for parts of the season, Nolasco has stepped in an filled a key spot in the rotation.

It can be frustrating to watch him give up dingers........but lately, if he can pitch 5/6 innings, keep the Halos within striking distance and turn the game over to the pen - well, that's OK.

And that's pretty much what we can expect. Would you rather have Santiago still with the team /in the rotation?  That's who we sent to Minnesota for Nolasco.

Heaney & Smith are both looking impressive in their rehabs. Hopefully, Nolasco's last start as an Angel will come soon. However, because of Scioscialism, the only way that's going to happen is if Eppler DFA's him.
