Angels' Burnett on road to recovery

With all the griping going on--and I'm talking to myself as much as anyone--I thought a ray of optimism is called for. Here's the money quote: "In combination with steady offseason signee Joe Smith and effective if unsteady closer Ernesto Frieri, a healthy Burnett would help make for one of baseball's better late-inning trios." I think that's a reasonable statement.

Baseball Prospectus 25-and-Under Talent Rankings

This quote sums it up: "It is much, much worse to receive bad news through the written word than by somebody simply telling you, and I’m sure you understand why. When somebody simply tells you bad news, you hear it once, and that’s the end of it. But when bad news is written down, whether in a letter or a newspaper or on your arm in felt tip pen, each time you read it, you feel as if you are receiving the bad news again and again."

Dipoto is a realist

Despite 2014 being a must-win season for Angels GM Jerry Dipoto, Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times writes that the executive didn't set out this offseason to acquire veterans who could provide a short-term band-aid for the club. "That's not in my DNA," he said. "The best representation of the job you do over time is what you leave behind." Dipoto also feels that the club has "a lot of veteran players in that 29 to 31 zone. That is when you win."

a few details on the Angels' revenues

They didn't include our rsn revenues in the bit, but have some great info on how much cash the team is bringing in (for anyone interested in trying to figure out the team's financial standing)

Awesome! Totally awesome! All right, Hamilton!

And thus the season of hope and promise fade with the days of our lives...
