That's not a typo on Albert Pujols. He's playing third tonight, which is something he actually did a few times last season without incident. Kendrys Morales, on the other hand, is playing first base for the first time since breaking his ankle in May of 2010. That's where the Angels may be handicapped the most these weekend in terms of defense. Then again, Mark Trumbo's in left... at Coors Field. 

That's a lot of 1B/DH types for one lineup. But I guess the good news for the Angels is they can all smack the cover off the ball and should be able to outhit their mistakes against this Colorado pitching staff.
