I'll be in NYC to see the Halos

I will be in the new stadium representing Halos Heaven on Sunday when our Angels take on the Yankers. My girlfriend is afraid I'm going to get us mugged, but the last time I saw the Angels in the...

Is it a true "World" Series?

During the 2002 soccer World Cup, I had a debate with a British neighbor about the validity of the term "World Series" to crown the best team in the world. My limey friend passionately argued that...

Ken Burns' "Baseball"

I had never seen this series before, so I decided it might be a good way to get fired up for the season. Right now, I'm watching Inning 8. My take: great history (especially the early years);...

Fantasy Baseball Tool

A buddy of mine runs this pretty interesting fantasy baseball tools site. Players are scored on their fantasy value only, and it's pretty exhaustive. Have a look.

State Justice says Angels are cursed

10

State appellate court justice David Sills stretched far and wide to show his sour grapes because he was the lone dissenter in the ruling that affirmed the Angels' name change. He reasons that because neither the California Angels nor the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim have won a World Series, a new "curse of the Bambino" is upon the Angels for changing their name. God help the poor souls who rely on this man for rational judgment -- oh wait, that's ALL OF US in California. Shit.

ADHD exemptions are up

16

106 amphetamine exemptions were granted in 2008, up from 103 in 2007. Apparently either MLB players are uniquely prone to suffering from ADHD (the usage rate is eight times the general adult population), or quite a few of them are using the Ole Doctor's Note to circumvent the rules.

SI: The Angels Need Teix

5

According to the author, Teixeira will teach the Angels how to hit patiently. I disagree -- the Angels need Teix because they absolutely must have a big hitter in the middle of that lineup, and Teix is that and much more.

A's want 1-game divisional series playoff

4

Gotta love Lew Wolff. Instead of a 5-game divisional series, he prefers a do-or-die 1-game playoff. I think that's a great idea -- as long as you're not the better team. If you want a 1-game playoff, then why not let EVERYONE in the playoffs, Lew? That'll make things even MORE exciting! What a ding-dong.

Frankie softening contract demands

6

Looks like Frankie wants more bidders. Either his playoff performance hurt him more than expected, his contract demands are too high, or ownership collusion is conspiring against paying him what he wants. In any case, he'll have some suitors. Get him, Arte!

Shocker: GA classier than Jeff Kent

T.J. has become master of the obvious. There are some great quotes in here, though. GA understands the biz and is thankful to the fans.

Rory recovering from surgery

Rory Markas had a blood clot removed today. Full recovery expected, but only if he doesn't have to listen to Steve Physioc in his absence.

He was scheduled to be on from 8-9pm, but Biggsy wisely had him on for the rest of the show. The Rev did very well, combining Angels insight with his sharp and irreverent wit to make good radio for...

"What really stands out, when you've got Vlad and Teixeira back-to-back in the same lineup, is what [Teixeira] isn't....Let's put it this way: I know which one I fear, and it isn't him. To me, when you see truly great players, they always have that extra edge, that killer instinct. Well, if this guy has it, he doesn't project it. Hey, he's a good player, obviously. But is he a guy who's going to legitimately carry a club for the money he's asking [for a new contract in the offseason]? I don't see that."

Best Angels Team Ever?

We all know that, based on the scoreboard, the 2002 Angels are technically the best Angels team in history. The proof is in the bling. But that's not what I'm speculating on here -- NOR am I making...
