Autograph ID Help


I don't know quite how to include more than one image in the fanshot, so I have a few below in the comments. Anyway, I found this ball recently while at my dad's place, and I know it's from ~1999 spring training when I was 12. A lot of these guys are probably not exactly big names, but if anyone can help me identify some of the names on this ball I'd really appreciate the help. I recognize for certain: Charlie O'Brien (the name in Sharpie, who I recognize because I also got him when I was 7 years old when he was a New York Met), Mark Petkovsek (the name directly below the Angel logo on the ball), and Mike Fyhrie (the bottom autograph on the side with four signatures). Thanks guys.

Rangers Choo-Choo-Choose Him


Seven years, $140 million. Welp, it's back to being pessimistic about this season again. There goes the good will of Ibanez and the Trumbo trade.

But Dipoto doesn't see the Angels' bullpen problems as something that can be solved simply by spending more. "While starting pitchers have track records and you have a pretty good idea of what you're going to get out of position players in terms of production, in the bullpen — that is akin to going to Las Vegas and throwing it all down on double-zero green," Dipoto said. "There's smart and there's stupid. That definitely leans toward the latter."




Per Mr. Victor Rojas. CELEBRATION TIME! Mayhap I get me some Trout?


Reasons We Should All Panic

We're currently sitting at a 3-6 record, and the game threads appear by the day to be becoming a more and more dreary place to find one's self during an Angels' telecast. Negativity (and...


What do you look like

Preface: I was having a little trouble putting this together in a simple fanshot, so excuse me if that was the better place to have moved this to. I also thought that maybe, temporarily, it...

If you want to get really angry at something


Look no further than this ESPN "article." It's a fluff piece on the all-time great Bernie Williams and how vastly better he is than the rest of the HoF ballot. It even features a three line blurb about Tim Salmon making fun of the Angels' team name. Boy, that's hilarious!

Steve Smith has been placed on injured reserve. Ced Thornton has been promoted to the 53-man active...

This is the Greatest Article Ever Written in the History of the Written Word


No, seriously. Just click. This article just made the entire MLB season worthwhile given the events of the last twenty minutes.

Michael Clayton Returns to Giants


Well thank God for clearing that huge hurdle. We can finally go back to having an elite receiving corp to match up with the Eagles' secondary. Oh, wait...it's not the 2004 offseason, is it?


Nnamdi Asomugha to the Eagles: 5yr/$60mil

Well this just came out of left field and ruined my day. I was hearing the Jets for a long time, and then this had to happen.   Courtesy of ESPN   Nnamdi Asomugha has agreed to a five-year, $60...


Breaking: Donovan McNabb a Redskin

In absolutely shocking news, it appears McNabb has been traded to the Washington Redskins for a 2nd round pick, and a 3rd and 4th pick next year, and possibly more: h...


How satisfied will you be if...

So I was just thinking of a whole bunch of potential scenarios this year which are both: a) plausible and b) not necessarily completely welcome, but not the worst case scenario either.   Basically,...


No, Seriously...Jason Bay actually IS going to sign with the Mets

This time with an actual, reliable source attached to it:   http://nybaseballdigest.com/?p=19676   Mike Francesa just reported on WFAN the Mets have signed Jason Bay pending a physical this...


Congratulations are in order

In the spirit of good sportsmanship, I just wanted to send out a big congratulations for the hard fought victory tonight. It was a long, grueling series to cap an eventful season, and I want to pay...


Tim McClelland Verifies the ineptitude of MLB Umpires

On the play with Cano and Posada, I thought Cano was on the base. I was waiting for two players to be on the base, and when there was never the situation where both of them were on the base at the...

Garret Anderson Collects 2,500th Career Hit


One of the all-time Angel greats, and dark horse Hall of Famer Garret Anderson added to his legacy tonight with a 2nd inning single to make him the 89th player in MLB history to reach 2,500 hits. Way to go, G.A. I miss having you around, man.

Lone Star Ball in a nutshell


Just browsing over there for the post game tonight, and I saw this in their fanshot section. No reason to give political commentary on the matter...rather, I think it's just a perfect microcosm of the general douchery over there.

ESPN is capable of getting precisely zero articles about the Angels right


"It has been fun watching the Angels the past month. Last year, they won 99 games while scoring 765 runs, 10th most in the AL." Really guys, fact check takes 3 seconds. I have a link to MLB standings bookmarked in Firefox. It's really inexcusable, even when it's so small. Once is a fluke, twice is coincidence, three or more times is a trend. ESPN trends toward shoddy Angels coverage.

No wonder we have such big hitting problems.

Second Degree Murder Charges for Gallo

I just turned on the season opener


as Garret Anderson came to bat for the Braves, and got his first hit with any other team other than the Angels. There's a knot in my stomach, and it damn near makes me want to cry. Thanks for the memories, G.A.


Enough is Enough: Bring in Brandon Wood

Brandon Wood's demotion to AAA has set off a firestorm of criticism among some Angel fans. They feel that this top prospect has nothing left to prove.


Yankees Sign Carl Pav ...err ...A.J. Burnett

Just in case you weren't sure that the evil empire was back in full swing, they've now put $243.5 million into TWO pitchers in the span of three days this offseason. And just in case you thought...


Yankees Trade for Nick Swisher

http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/news/story?id=3700869 Now usually there's no reason in the world for us to much care that the Yanks are making a trade for someone like Swisher to begin with. ...


What we all look like

I'm sure this has been done at some point before, and I just haven't noticed or whatever, but here we go again I guess. The season is over, but the offseason hasn't started yet, so i thought it...


If we have to lose...

this is the way to do it: - K-Rod signed his walking papers.  He's more done than Glavine in New York.  And we have Jose right behind him ready to take over.  So we free up millions, and get rid...
