Words taste good

So the Angels' site has a little tidbit that was clearly designed with the singular purpose of causing me to eat my words--

Jeff DaVanon drilled a solo homer in the Angels' split-squad, 16-2 win over the Diamondbacks. He is tied with Casey Kotchman for the club lead this spring with seven hits.

It should be mentioned that Q was on fire today (and played with the A team, while Jeff was clearly on the "who-the-heck-arethese-guys" team) and must be just 1 hit behind JD and the Kotch-man. Also Curtis Pride is batting some insane percentage (because, not so many at-bats right now) so wave your hands in the air for Curtis Pride.

I still think it is crazy to toy with the idea of having Casey as DH. But what the heck do I know? (Don't answer that) I'm sort of happy about D-Mac's back issues right now, not because I don't like him, or because I wish him ill or anything. I just like the idea of there being a place for JD and Q, and with Dallas off getting epidurals, that can happen more easily.
