It would have been a gutsy move, one many fans would have applauded but would have risked ruffling the feathers of right fielder Josh Hamilton , the 2010 American League most valuable player and five-time All-Star. With the Angels trailing, 6-3, runners on first and third and two outs in the eighth inning Friday night, Houston Manager Bo Porter summoned left-hander Travis Blackley to face Hamilton, the potential tying run. Hamilton is struggling - he entered Saturday with a .220 average, eight homers, 18 runs batted in and 58 strikeouts - but he's been even more impotent against lefties, with a .169 average, no homers, two RBIs and 24 strikeouts in 59 at-bats.

"Management" is a mellow slow dance of a romantic comedy that skips the "meet-cute" in favor of "awkward encounter" -- a bottle of bad wine and a modest motel room where absolutely nothing sexy or romantic happens, which turns out to be strangely appealing.
