Angels need to stay loose

A tightly wound team won't beat the Red Sox.

October 03, 2009

Helene Elliott [Sept. 29] seems to want the Angels to remain somewhat wound until they get by Boston, when in fact it's a loose team -- a celebratory team with solidarity over what they have lost and gained -- that is going to beat Boston. Let's hope they can maintain the celebration. If they play the Red Sox with anywhere near the reckless abandon with which they celebrated Monday night, they will crush them. The team Helene wants to put up against the Red Sox -- the one that is holding on to their emotions -- is doomed before they start.

While the Angels pouring beer on Nick Adenhart's jersey may be in poor taste, people need to look at the bigger picture. The best way for the Angels' players to honor Nick would have been to get somebody who wasn't drinking to drive them home after the game. The issue isn't drinking; alcohol is legal for people over 21. But nobody should get behind the wheel of a car after they have been drinking.

The Angels' tribute to Nick Adenhart was both extraordinarily touching and unintentionally unsettling. Was it excessive? I don't know, but I do know this:

Tom Hanks was wrong in that movie. In both the first and final weeks of this season, there has definitely been crying in baseball.
