5 Game Packages Available/Single Game Sales Date Announced

4

Came out yesterday, but I didn't see it posted here (sorry if it was). 5 game packages are intriguing. Note that season ticket holders get first dibs on single game tickets by about a week, so buddy up to that friend with season tickets if you want to go to the opener. Also, tickets will be going on sale to the general public at the box office a whole day ahead of Ticketmaster. So if you have no friends with season tickets, hopefully you have friends with no job and live in Portland (should be about 1 out of every 9 people) that can wait in line to get tickets.

ESPN came out with their most recent power rankings for Week 1 this week. (Found here) ^I wish I could make a hyperlink in a fanshot This graph shows the Rams power rankings since 2002. Pretty interesting. Pretty sad. They have been in the bottom 50% since Week 8 of 2006.

Butcher up to bat in the bottom of the third? I think he's the only player on the team with a lower BA than Jeff Mathis.

Angels History

So after reading the article about BoSox bandwagoners, I feel a distinct shame in that despite growing up in OC and cheering at early/mid-90s Angels games, I know very little about Angels history....
