Guerrero starts to throw

It wasn’t all gloom and despair in the Angels’ dugout before Monday night’s game against the Giants with Kelvim Escobar going to the DL and Ervin Santana having his start on Tuesday night pushed back because of shoulder discomfort.

Vladimir Guerrero, who can light up any room with his smile, was beaming as he signed autographs before taking batting practice.

The big bopper started his throwing program on Monday — small steps, but important ones — and you just know he can’t wait to get back on the field.

“It felt good,” Vlad said through that luminous smile. “It’s a start, right?”

We have these conversations where I speak Spanish and he speaks English, and they can be immensely enjoyable to both of us. When he bounded into the dugout with Maicer Izturis and Kendry Morales and I said, in Spanish, “three handsome Latino ballplayers,” he laughed and said, “No, two.”

I have a pretty good idea which of the three he wasn’t calling handsome, but I’m not saying. It wouldn’t be good for club harmony.

Tres guapo jugadores Latinos. Es verdad, no? Buen trabajo compadre! . . .BeesGal

Every one of the Angels is looking pretty hot right now! I’ll be rooting for Sean O’Sullivan. I love that his pitching style is being compared to Jered Weaver’s. What team wouldn’t want 2 Weavers??? Looking forward to a rookie win!!

What a great sweep in SF! Lincecum was tough. We had no choice but to bring in the big guns…Hunter and Guerrero. Loved it!
