This clubhouse has the thinnest toilet paper. Might have to contact the union about this…— Michael Roth (@mtRoth29) April 29, 2013Angels Rookie Michael Roth finds the pennypinching ways of the Oakland A's a little too thin in the worst possible place.
If you or any of your contributors have Ohio State ties and/or know anyone who does, I'd love to chat with you (and especially them). Be it a contributer on your site, a coworker, your grating roommate in college who rooted for OSU over your alma matter, a family member, or even a commenter from your community, shoot me a line. It'd help the network out immensely (this is a high visibility college property) and I would personally be extremely grateful as well. Feel free to shoot me an email (or pass along this address)...email@example.com

I think for a large part – and the fans don't want to hear this – a lot of the people that attend sports in this town, they're there because it's kind of just a place to be seen. I didn't know anybody who went to Rangers games, and then when they started winning and going to World Series, everybody's wearing Rangers hats and saying, 'Oh yeah, I'm a big Rangers fan.'--Troy Aikman
But Dipoto doesn't see the Angels' bullpen problems as something that can be solved simply by spending more. "While starting pitchers have track records and you have a pretty good idea of what you're going to get out of position players in terms of production, in the bullpen — that is akin to going to Las Vegas and throwing it all down on double-zero green," Dipoto said. "There's smart and there's stupid. That definitely leans toward the latter."http://www.ocregister.com/sports/angels-373425-dipoto-season.html
Last home game of the season, who is going to be there? We should have a little get together for those attending tomorrow afternoon.
"Throw home with the bases loaded. I thought I had my foot on the plate. The guy was out by probably 10 feet. I caught the ball and I backed up because I had no [other] play. The umpire was John Kibler, God rest his soul. The guy slid in. I'm waiting for an out call. He goes, "Safe!" I look, and I'm literally 4 feet from the plate. Just standing there like some jackass. … John looks at me and goes, 'What are you doing?' I go, 'I have no idea, John.' " – Los Angeles Angels manager Mike SciosciaTaken from a Y!
