Around the Horn
A couple of quick observations/opinions from today's action:
In the few times I've seen Mike Cameron play center field, I've never seen him take a poorer route to the ball as he did on Chase Utley's drive in the third inning.
I wonder if the whole 100-year drought thing is just too much of a burden for the entire Chicago organization. As soon as James Loney hit his grand slam in the fifth inning to give the Dodgers a 4-2 lead, the game was over and the Cubs fans were disheartened. Tomorrow (today, actually) is a must win for the Cubbies.
The biggest reason for Boston's victory: Not one Angels batter led off the inning by getting on base. It simply limited what they are so good at -- hit and run, stealing bases and keeping constant pressure on the defense.
