Brutal column about the Angels, aka "the Winter World Series" champions, by Mark Whicker of the OCR

Cleveland Plain Dealer letter to the editor proposes Indians trade for Vernon Wells

In a letter to the editor published in the Cleveland Plain Dealer last week, an Indians fan wrote: "What if the Indians asked for Vernon Wells and Kendrys Morales plus money from the Angels for bullpen help and prospects? Wells is owed over $62 million over the next three years. Would the Indians make the move if the Angels offered to eat $20 million of Wells' contract. The Angels lose a bad contract and open up a spot for Mike Trout, plus get bullpen help. The Indians get a quality right-handed bat in Wells and a quality switch-hitting first baseman in Morales, if he's healthy." Of course, the paper's staff writer goes on to reject the proposal as "way too much of a gamble for me." But is there hope that a deal could be made?

Is today Brandon Wood's last day as an Angel?

Erick Aybar is eligible to come off the DL tomorrow. It is unlikely that the team will send down a catcher or pitcher. Has the end finally arrived for a former top prospect?

When did Angels fans become so spoiled?
