If You Walk Mike Trout, You Still Gotta Face Albert Pujols: Angels Beat Rangers, 4-3, with Walk-Off in Bottom of Ninth

It felt like old times last night at Angel Stadium. Lot of smiles (plus plenty of grimaces from Manager Mike Scioscia).

And I still can't see why teams think they're making a good call by walking Mike Trout. Pujols is going to take you to the cleaners on the next at-bat. I said it as soon as Texas pitched wide to Trouty, and then boom, the Pujols walk off. It was almost like clockwork.

At LAT, "Albert Pujols punches first winning ticket for Angels in bottom of ninth."
