On the other side of the coin, there is a nice article on Chris Ianetta over on the MLB,com web under the Angels’ news. He seems to be doing well there as I had predicted due to the fact that he gets to work with John Sciosca. The pitching staff is falling in love with him as a receiver.

Chris is a good field general and gets on well with just about all the pitchers. On the other hand if you need to have him get a hit, expecially at a critical juncture of the game you will be disappointed all too often.

Saw him get an excellent double yesterday, he was swinging pretty well – like i felt he should have here instead of looking for a walk…i’ve always loved chris “coppertop” iannetta, but he isn’t “hungry” enough for what we need…we did get an upgrade in an arm, that is for darn sure – hernandez has a gun!
