The Angels all realize they've got to fix it before they fall into the same type of hole that doomed them last season.
Los Angeles plays the AL's final home opener Tuesday night against the AL West champion Oakland Athletics. The Angels began the season by dropping two of three to 2012 playoff teams in each of their first two series.
And the whole week wasn't pretty. New $125 million outfielder Josh Hamilton went 4 for 25 with 10 strikeouts, and the Angels scored more than four runs in just one game. What's more, ace Jered Weaver left Sunday's loss early with a strained elbow.
