I have never pretended that Halos Heaven was anything more than an intelligent and passionate group of Angels fans discussing the team. On the occasion that I got scoops, they fell into my lap - usually as a nod to our monster high traffic. Other fan blogs might imply they are getting hot oil massages in the press box cigar lounge for writing at a 7th grade level and toting the party line, but the truth is far from that. The mainstream websites are dominated by irresponsible "pros" like Mark Saxon trying to create controversy with out-of-context quotes or arrogant dinosaurs like Mark Whicker who delusionally believe they have a higher readership than us simply because 400,000 coupon clippers still subscribe to their paper. Into this vacuum enter LA ANGELS INSIDER run by Jeff Biggs, Jason Brennan and Eric Denton. Click that link - they were in the Angels clubhouse last night and are able to describe the mood there on a tense night. Notice their coverage does not stab any player in the back like trollish Mark Saxon nor compare anyone to Joe Jackson and Babe Ruth alá Mark Whicker. It literally is "INSIDER" ... fans inside the clubhouse on behalf of fans. This is a great development!
