PHOENIX - Jordan Walden entered Angels spring training this season as a 23-year-old reliever looking to nail down a roster spot. Low and behold, he was sitting at media day Monday as an American League All-Star, courtesy of his 20 saves, high strikeout rate and 2.84 ERA. The young fireballer stuck out most for me because he couldn't have been any happier. I mean, this guy was stuck answering questions -- likely the same questions over and over -- for about a half hour, and he just had the feel of a kid in a candy store. Check out the video below as CBSSports.com discusses his season.
