Suddenly Godzilla stompts into our yard, highlighting the global nature of today's baseball biz, and Hideki Matsui will hopefully hit a ton of ropes into the RF bleachers and make us forget about tears for Vlad, GA, The Kingfish, the Ryan Express, and all the other dear departed. On a pure baseball footing, Hideki Matsui looks to be a superb signing for us.
Big Hideki not only adds countless fans to our "fan base" from the Land of the Rising Luminous Power, but he is also a Damn Good Baseball Player. Happy to have him ... and so should be Halos fans from everywhere. (btw ... Mr Matsui, please help get us the services of Mr Yu Darvish, from your native land.)
But we all come from somewhere called home ... This is what makes up the the Angels' "fan base".
Where does this so-called fan base of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim actually exist? OK, I am biased towards areas near the Stadium, and my own belief is that the Angels' fan base emanates from St. Joseph Hospital of Orange (circa 1964), but what do I know? For all I know, the Angels' fan base may have actually started circa 1888 when Vladimir Guerrero was born on a whaling ship in the Caribbean Sea.
So where is YOUR Angels fan base? Express your bad-ass self and represent YOUR hood in the poll below and comment with the explosive speed of a moon shot off the bat of Mr Matsui ...
