Bay Bridge shutdown forces detour for Angels

23 Comments

The Bay Bridge was closed down this afternoon after someone reported a suspicious device on an offramp. That wouldn’t seem to be much of a baseball issue, except the Angels were staying in a San Francisco hotel despite playing in Oakland tonight.

This happened early enough in the day that it seems unlikely any players will show up late to the ballpark tonight. But it is a little interesting that a) the Angels prefer to stay in San Fran when they’re playing in Oakland and b) Albert Pujols is still showing up early to the park, yet the .223-hitting Josh Hamilton doesn’t feel the need.
