Wednesday Halolinks: The Coolness That Is Jerry DiPoto. He's A Zephyr!

It's almost like spring is in the air:

LINKS AFTER THE BREAK...

  • Do you feel that?  The gentle coolness of that breeze across your face?  That my friends is what they call a "breath of fresh air" supplied by Angels' new GM Jerry DiPoto.  Within this article in the LA Times: Angels GM widens search for relief pitcher, DiPoto candidly talks about what he is actually doing, not some gibberish as heard in the previous regime.  DiPoto correctly states, "You look at the relief market, and you don’t know where it’s going — it could change.  To invest that much capital in one spot might not be the right way to go."  He also states he's has contacted the agents for "between five and 10" right-handers.  Does anyone ever remember Reagins, or Stoneman for that matter, being so open about team business? 

    The Angels' GM also had a few words with MLBTradeRumors.  It's nice to see DiPoto has time to talk with the "non-traditional" news outlets.  Within this post, Dipoto Talks Catcher, Callaspo, Trout, he claims he likes Callaspo, wants Trout to play everyday, and there needs to be a balance of offense and defense behind the plate.
  • If there's a better writer providing local baseball coverage than the OC Register's Sam Miller, I'd be very surprised.  Sam looks into Mike Trout's Rookie of the Year status in this post:  Mike Trout can’t win the Rookie of the Year award  and determines Trout might need a clearer rules interpretation to still be eligible.
  • Sure, Justin Verlander is the unanimous winner of the A.L. Cy Young, BBWAA.com: Official site of the Baseball Writers' Assn. of America., but what I want to know is, who were the three idiot writers who don't think Jered Weaver was one of the top 3 pitchers last season?  Fine, give a hometown second-place vote to your teams' guy, but seriously, some dipshit had Weaver at #5!
