Looks like a couple of former Long Beach State pitchers will start Game 1 of ALDS, #Angels RH Jered Weaver vs. #Royals LHP Jason Vargas.

LHH had a .631 OPS against Vargas, a lefty, this season. Good chance CJ Cron starts at DH for #Angels in Game 1. #Royals

The fact that Herrera is back out for a second inning makes the decision not to go to him when Shields came out look even worse.
