Check out these Angels' bullpen stats during their just concluded 10 game road trip which ended this afternoon in Oakland (4 games vs. TEX, 3 games vs. CHI and 3 games vs. OAK):

4-6 in road trip (2-2 in TEX, 1-2 in CHI, 1-2 in OAK)

* Angels held lead in 5th inning or later in 9 of 10 games while Angels scored 70 runs
* 10.54 era
* 34 Runs scored against bullpen- 32 of them were earned
* 41 hits
* 10 BBs
* 11 HRs in 27 1/3 innings
* Angels pitching coach Mike Butcher still has a job as of now.

Angels could have had a 9-1 road trip record and been right there with the Rangers. This trip killed the Angels.

I watched the three games with the A's and understand why you are complaining. At one point today the A's announcers became absorbed by the subject and were offering the same sorts of failure stats as you provide above. Then the A's bullpen was awfully damn shaky themselves, just barely holding on for the 9-8 win.

It was a rare warm day in the Bay Area and the ball was really flying off the bat today...seven homeruns in the game, two by the A's and five by the Angels. The home run Morales hit in the fifth inning was really odd, the pitch from Straily seemed to jam him, just above the letters and off the plate inside...but then there is this little lighting quick flash of the bat and kaboom...there it went.

Morales may be using an old bat discarded by Norm Cash or Graig Nettles.
