Visions of Vladdy: Wishing you were here

July 13, 2010 |  2:41 pm

Jered Weaver, the Angels ace who was named to the American League All-Star team Sunday, did a double-take when he walked into the Angels’ clubhouse Monday and saw Vladimir Guerrero at the same locker he had used for six years in Anaheim.

Guerrero, of course, left the Angels to sign with Texas last winter and is batting .319 with 20 homers and 75 runs batted in for the Rangers, earning a spot as the AL’s starting designated hitter for Tuesday night’s game.

Guerrero's replacement, Hideki Matsui, is batting .252 with 10 homers and 47 RBIs for the Angels.

"That brought back some memories," Weaver said of his Guerrero sighting. "I’m so used to seeing him there … I wish he was still over here."
