The Angels crushed the Texas Rangers tonight 15 runs 4, the Angels have tied the Rangers for first place in the American League West. The Angels plan to activate Erick Aybar from the disabled list Wednesday, the Halos have finally designated infielder Brandon Wood for assignment effectively ending his tenure with the Angels. If he goes unclaimed by the other major league teams then you will have the option to accept the minor league assignment offered by the Angels, or decline and effectively become a free agent. I sincerely wish Brandon well, perhaps a change of scenery might help his career. He just never seemed to be comfortable in Anaheim, I don’t know whether that was due to the Angels’ system, their philosophy, or something else.
I am relatively happy with the move it’s something that needed to be done, I’ve questioned the Angels insistence on making them part of the team since last season, I suggested in one of my earlier entries that the Angels would have been better off to include them in one of the trade packages in order to get some value for him, or at the very least some cash considerations. I sincerely wish the situation would have played out differently but unfortunately for Brandon and the Angels it was not meant to be. Brandon Wood was a first-round pick by the Angels in 2003, he had huge potential but never really lived up to the expectation of the fans and the organization. I wish Brandon Wood the best. Go Angels!
