    I agree that the Angels don’t need Holliday. I don’t think he will produce in that stadium. The article I linked to for Escobar says he might be out for the season after suffering an injury in rehab. Escobar said it is very painful. Escobar said this after the rehab game: “I shouldn’t have pitched,” Escobar said. “It felt like I was pushing the ball and guarding my shoulder. That’s not good. With everything I’ve done to this point, I expected to be a lot better.”
