You know what was really, really good about the 2002 Angels?

The bench. We really don't talk about it much, but we had a damn good bench, and I don't think we've had one quite as good since that season. Just look at these six players on that page: Orlando Palmeiro, Shawn Wooten, Benji Gil, Jose Nieves, Jose Molina, Alex Ochoa. Those guys had a really nice year, and that provided for some serious depth. It's hard to imagine a better fourth outfielder than Orlando Palmeiro: lefty, good on-base skills, high average off the bench, solid guy. How much do you think the bench in '02 accounted for our championship?
