Jarrod Washburn is friends with Jeff Weaver and in a fantasy football league with Doug Mientkiewicz. The possibility of Washburn joining his pals in Dodger blue appears very real. The Dodgers are interested in the Seattle Mariners starter, a durable left-hander who could bolster an injury-plagued rotation. Washburn has pitched at least six innings in 12 of his 14 starts this season. He also likes Dodger Stadium.

TEMPE, Ariz. -- A third player from the Angels' 2002 World Series championship team has joined the head coaching ranks, though not quite at the level of Darin Erstad, who is in his second season at the University of Nebraska. Jarrod Washburn, the ace of the Angels' title team, recently took over as the baseball coach at Webster High School, the left-hander's alma mater in the tiny Wisconsin town (population 643) he grew up in. [ Update, 2:55 p.m.: Troy Percival, the closer on the championship team, is head coach at Moreno Valley High.]

I want to thank the Angels for a good season. Too many injuries and bad starting pitching, plus no power ruined Arte Moreno's big-dollar team. No passion. Thank you and so long to Tim Salmon, Adam Kennedy, Troy Percival, Jarrod Washburn, Ramon Ortiz, Aaron Sele and congratulations to the new manager of the Dodgers, Bud Black. Oh, the season isn't over yet? Print this letter next month then. John Padilla Santa Maria

While acknowledging that Trevor Bell "had kind of a clunker in Toronto," Mike Scioscia isn't ready to trade in the 22-year-old for another fifth starter. The Angels manager said Monday that Bell would start again Friday against Oakland, with Matt Palmer likely to assume the No. 5 spot in the rotation if Bell continues to struggle. Bell was hammered for six runs in only 1 2/3 innings Sunday against Toronto and is 1-1 with a 9.49 earned-run average in three starts. "We have a lot confidence he'll bounce back and give us a good game," said Scioscia, who will need seven more starts from a fifth starter over the season's final six weeks.

The Anaheim Police Department should be prepared to stand up to a storm of criticism for releasing the investigation of Jarrod Washburn, without also acknowledging the major discrepancies in the case. Moreover, one day after the police disclosed the investigation, the Orange County district attorney declined to file a sexual assault case against Washburn. If only the police had buttoned their lips a few days longer, they might have saved Washburn a wrenching personal experience. Joanne Gamlin Santa Monica I do not believe in jinxes or anything like that, but being a die-hard Angel fan for 24 of my 32 years, they are doing everything they can to change my mind.

Jarrod Washburn had a 4.64 ERA last year, while earning nearly $6 million, and John Lackey had a 4.67 ERA. Last time I checked, those were not very good numbers. Unless Bill Stoneman is confident the Angels can score five or six runs every time they pitch, I think the Angels are seriously overestimating the "depth" of their pitching staff, which allows them the arrogance to demand 48-hour signing ultimatums to a young pitcher who in a year or two could easily be their best starter. David Duffy San Francisco Thanks, Jered Weaver.

Jarrod Washburn has won 11 consecutive decisions since starting the season 0-2. The 27-year-old Angel left-hander has not lost since April 13 and owns the longest single-season winning streak in franchise history. Washburn (11-2) has already matched his victory total of last season when he finished 11-10. "Every time out, I'm being consistent," said Washburn, who pitches tonight. "It's the first time in my career I've really done that for a long period of time.

The memory is not pleasant. The last time Jarrod Washburn pitched a game that counted, a few miles from here, he was devastated and ashen-faced. In Game 5 of the World Series, at Pacific Bell Park in San Francisco, Washburn sunk the Angels into a 6-0 hole, with 10 of the first 14 Giant batters reaching base. The Angels lost, 16-4, tumbling within one defeat of losing the World Series. "I'm glad we won. It made the off-season a lot easier," he said.

THE BIG PLAY Trailing, 6-0, after two, the Angels had crept back into the game and were down by only two when Jeff Kent hit a two-out, two-run homer in the sixth to give the Giants an 8-4 lead. They never looked back from that point, as Kent added another two-run home run in the Giants' four-run seventh inning. -- -- -- THE BIG LETDOWN -- With Kevin Appier and Ramon Ortiz scheduled for Games 6 and 7, the Angels needed a big game from their ace, Jarrod Washburn.

The Angels will face Detroit's top three pitchers -- Justin Verlander , Jarrod Washburn and Edwin Jackson -- in a three-game series against the American League Central division-leading Tigers that begins Monday night in Angel Stadium. They will also have to contend with a slugging first baseman who, had things gone a little differently in the winter after the 2007 season, would have been in the Angels lineup instead of Detroit's. Owner Arte Moreno said he thought the Angels had a trade in place with Florida for Miguel Cabrera twice in December 2007, only to have the deal fall apart because the Marlins increased their demands at the last minute.

Jarrod Washburn's debut with the Detroit Tigers was forgettable. Washburn gave up six runs (a season high) and six hits in 5 1/3 innings as Baltimore routed Detroit 8-2 on Tuesday night. "I was terrible," Washburn said. He also admitted that he was a little more nervous than usual because he wanted to get off to a good start with his new team. Tigers' Manager Jim Leyland isn't worried about Washburn. "He was rusty. You could see his command wasn't there," Leyland said.

Roy Halladay this, Roy Halladay that, and the best pitcher traded Friday turned out to be a guy on the disabled list. Halladay, arguably the best pitcher in baseball, remains the ace of the Toronto Blue Jays. Jake Peavy, who has not thrown a pitch in seven weeks because of an ankle injury that might require several more weeks of rehabilitation, was traded to the same team he rejected earlier this season.

Jarrod Washburn pitched a three-hitter for his third career shutout, outdueling Joe Blanton and leading the Seattle Mariners over the Oakland Athletics, 2-0, Wednesday night. Washburn (1-2) struck out two and walked two in his first complete game since blanking Texas for the Angels on June 22, 2005. His only other shutout was against the Chicago White Sox on July 7, 2004. Blanton (2-1) pitched a six-hitter for Oakland but gave up home runs to Jose Guillen and Kenji Johjima.

Players refer to a hard fastball as "cheese." Angel pitcher Jarrod Washburn has hit 94 mph on the speed gun, putting him in definite cheese range, but one reason the left-hander is 5-0 with a 2.81 earned-run average in his last nine games is a fastball that is as soft as warm brie.

The arm speed indicated heat, but when the ball came out of Angel left-hander Jarrod Washburn's hand in the fourth inning Saturday in Camden Yards, it floated at 84 mph, not quite an Eric Gagne-caliber changeup, but effective enough to strike out Oriole outfielder Luis Matos looking. Ten years of research and development of baseball's time-tested off-speed pitch is finally paying off for Washburn, who is 7-1 and leads the American League in victories entering tonight's start against Baltimore.

The only thing that might have made Wednesday's win sweeter for Mariner pitcher Jarrod Washburn was if Bill Stoneman, the Angel general manager who made no attempt to keep the free-agent left-hander this last winter, had been in Safeco Field to witness it. But Washburn, the former Angel who gave up two runs and six hits in seven innings to lead Seattle to a 6-4 victory in his Mariner debut, did not use Wednesday's performance or platform to gloat.

The most difficult part about this week for Jarrod Washburn wasn't pitching against his friends and former teammates Wednesday afternoon. It was watching them from the Seattle Mariner dugout Monday and Tuesday. "Seeing [Chone] Figgins lead off and rooting for an out for the first time in my life, rooting for Vladimir [Guerrero] and [Garret Anderson] to make outs, watching [Scot] Shields come into a game and hoping he gives up hits ... ," Washburn said of the Angels. "That was weird.
