I am a 40-something Angels fan now living in exile in Northern California. I am literally a life-long fan because the Angels and I were born in the same year. I am a Dodger hater because I was abused by Dodger fans throughout my childhood and adolescence.

If you could write the script...

If you were granted a wish that you could have tonight's game go exactly how you drew it up, what would you call for? I know my first choice would be for a total blowout because I am tired of the...

More Disrespect from ESPN

On the way to work this morning, Colin Cowheard (sp?) of ESPN Radio led off his show with something like this: There has never been a more insignificant 12-inning playoff game in history. The...

What would you trade for a win?

Ok, it will probably end up being an insignificant--albeit ugly--wart on the face of what will probably be a wonderful season, but man, do I HATE to lose.Figuring most of us here despise a loss to...

Excuses are like A's.... everyone has one.

After seeing how much Oakland moans and groans about injuries doing them in this year, I decided to mentally (always a dangerous thing) chart the Angel injuries. I really think we have had more...

THIS is why

Now I have a face to put on my fear: Jeff Weaver's. The reason that we can not give up on that injury-prone sack of K's named Dallas McPherson was leaping up and down celebrating a World Series...

The Difference between A's and Angels

Without looking into the minutae of the stat sheets, but thinking globally instead, I think it is very clear that if the A's go on to win this division it can be chalked up to one big difference:...

Finley on DL is great thing!

Though I entertained serious doubts before the season about picking up a 40-year-old centerfielder, I am not among those who want to write this off as a bad deal--yet. That in mind, I really think...

Note to Scioscia: Put Benji at DH

I say we put B. Molina at DH as soon as he gets off the DL. He hits well in the clutch, he hits for average, he hits for power, and he has a high OPB. With his leg injuries, he just gets hurt too...
