I signed Mike long-term, and I'm invested in Mike long-term. For you, as a writer, you're going on a day-by-day, writing articles and you want me to pull some kind of rabbit out of a hat and give you something about what we're going to look at after the season or how we're going to look at the beginning of the season next year. A couple years ago, (Ron) Roenicke was our bench coach and he was asked to be the manager of the Milwaukee Brewers. A few years before that, our pitching coach (Bud Black, went to the Padres). So the changing of baseball staffs happen, or adjustments happen sometimes, because they get an opportunity to go somewhere else in a leadership role. And sometimes there are decisions made where we need to make a move because change is needed. But I would say what you have to look at with people, whether they are in charge of ticketing or marketing or accounting or coaching, is what kind of person he is, how do they represent our organization and what have they accomplished over a period of time. ... We try not to make impulsive decisions. ... Let's put it this way: Right now, that is not in our thought process. Arte's wishy-washy comment on Scioscia

One of the questions leading up to the 2012 season for the Angels was if Kendrys Morales, after being out of baseball with a terrible ankle injury, could return to his power-hitting form. ...

Peter O'Malley Interested in Buying the Pads

Rumors says he wants the deal done before the all-star break. Sounds good to me. I was young but the Dodgers were pretty successful under his ownership, right? What do you all think?

So How Long is Scioscia's Leash?

Twelve games in, really, no one should be stressed at this point. However, as most of us would agree, Scioscia has been faltering a bit in his decision making over the past couple of years. There...

Marlins Announcers Cramping Victor Rojas' Style?

So Omar Infante hit a HR at Marlins Park yesterday and in turn, we all got to see that monstrosity in center field work its ugly, ugly magic for the first time. Check out the video, though. Marlins announcer says the following, "It's gone! Light that thing up!" I call copyright infringement!

"I always have that chip on my shoulder, no matter what kind of success I've had," Pujols says forcefully. "This is going to be an extra chip on my shoulder that I'm going to have the next 10 years, maybe for the rest of my life. I don't want to ever change that attitude."

New Song by Wale Called "Albert Pujols"

45

This was released today and features Rick Ross. While I would like to think that it was recorded post-Angels signing....it's actually a leftover track from Wale's album released in November of 2011. If none of this makes sense to you, just nod, smile and be stoked that there's a rap song named after our newest slugger.

Bill Plunkett: Vernon Will Not Opt Out of His Contract (sigh...)

61

No surprise here but Bill Plunkett grew a pair and asked Vernon if he was gonna opt out of his contract. Vernon has no plans to do so, stating: "Maybe it’s just society, but people put too much on struggling," Wells said. "All of a sudden, everything is negative – you’re a bad guy; you’re unhappy. It’s a struggle, yeah. But that’s all it is. I’ve struggled before. Baseball is such a different game. You can be an All-Star one year, struggle the next year and become an All-Star again. "It is what it is. … (Southern California) is a great place to live, a great place to play. I’ve got a lot of good years left and I look forward to having them there." Feel free to tell Vernon to think otherwise on his facebook HERE. One guy has already told him to "HIT MORE HOME RUNS, PLZ!"

Grantland Names Angels One of Six Teams "You Don't Want to Face in the Playoffs"

25

Nice write up by Jonah Keri on how the Scioscia formula (pitching + defense) has been a "secret sauce" for success. Weird to read on the doorstep of our season pretty much ending. If you aren't familiar, Grantland is a new sports & culture site dedicated to long-form journalism and all things sports fan might be into. Some of the regular contributors include Dave Eggers and Chuck Klosterman. It was started by ESPNer Bill Simmons.... but don't let that deter you.

Tim Brown of Yahoo Sports Gives the Angels Some Love

My favorite line: "Since July 1, only the Red Sox and the Philadelphia Phillies have won more often than the Angels, who’ve taken the fight to the Rangers by batting .222 since the All-Star break and passing entirely at the trading deadline." Yeah, I don't get how the hell they win either.
