The beginning to the 2012 baseball season hasn’t been very kind to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, and CJ Wilson is going to the well of Ron Washington wisdom to explain it.
Following the Angels’ 3-2 loss to Tampa Bay on Wednesday, Wilson had the following bit of familiar-sounding words for the gathered media:
“To paraphrase a guy I used to play for, `That's the way baseball go,' " Wilson said, per the Dallas Morning News. “I really feel like we're close. I genuinely feel we're close to breaking through.”
Perhaps, but as of now, things aren’t going well in LA. The team is off to a 6-12 start, and Albert Pujols has yet to leave the yard as a member of the Halos.
If there is a silver lining here, it’s this, as pointed out by Gerry Fraley of the Morning News: When the Angels won the World Series in 2002, they did so after starting 6-12.
