Return of the Kingfish

La Times reports that Tim Salmon is expected to make the team today. Is he the best choice for the Angels' DH? I don't know, its tough to accurately project a 37 year old who missed a year, had every injury known to man, and wasn't very good in 2004, the last time he played.

Should Juan Rivera get more AB? Should Kendry or Kendrick or D-Mac make the team as DH? I don't know, and I don't care. They'll get their chances in the future. I want Tim Salmon on this Angel team. I'm being an unapologetic fan here. He's earned it with his .346 average and 4 homers this spring. The team says his bat speed looks good, and he could be the one player on the team who will actually work counts and take walks.

If it doesn't work out, then Salmon will probably get 100 AB and then ride off into the sunset, with the knowledge he gave the Angels everything he had. And fans will get one last chance to cheer for the greatest Angel to ever play the game.

At least until 20 years from know, when Brandon Wood hits his 400th HR on his 3000th hit.

I should add that in his early years, I never had Tim Salmon on my fantasy team. Someone always outbid. After finally getting Salmon and expecting the .290-30-100 lines to continue, I got his 2001 season. Sorry Tim.

My fantasy draft is tonight. Out of love, I will not bid. I hope Salmon puts up some huge numbers for one of my competitors.

To be a good human being is to be enduring a amiable of openness to the far-out, an ability to guardianship unsure things beyond your own control, that can lead you to be shattered in unequivocally extreme circumstances pro which you were not to blame. That says something uncommonly important thither the prerequisite of the honest passion: that it is based on a conviction in the fitful and on a willingness to be exposed; it's based on being more like a weed than like a prize, something kind of fragile, but whose mere precise beauty is inseparable from that fragility.
