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.'

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."

"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 Scioscia

I signed Mike long-term, and I'm invested in Mike long-term. For you, as a writer, you're going on a day-by-day, writing articles and you want me to pull some kind of rabbit out of a hat and give you something about what we're going to look at after the season or how we're going to look at the beginning of the season next year. A couple years ago, (Ron) Roenicke was our bench coach and he was asked to be the manager of the Milwaukee Brewers. A few years before that, our pitching coach (Bud Black, went to the Padres). So the changing of baseball staffs happen, or adjustments happen sometimes, because they get an opportunity to go somewhere else in a leadership role. And sometimes there are decisions made where we need to make a move because change is needed. But I would say what you have to look at with people, whether they are in charge of ticketing or marketing or accounting or coaching, is what kind of person he is, how do they represent our organization and what have they accomplished over a period of time. ... We try not to make impulsive decisions. ... Let's put it this way: Right now, that is not in our thought process. Arte's wishy-washy comment on Scioscia

Jason Isringhausen told reporters (including MLB.com's Alden Gonzalez) that he won't accept an assignment to Triple-A if he loses his roster spot when Jordan Walden returns from the DL ( Twitter link). The 39-year-old has pitched to a 4.02 ERA in 40 1/3 innings for the Angels this year.

The Angels are the most inconsistent team in the history of the universe.

The Angels are the most inconsistent team in the history of the universe.

Seriously, what the F is up with this team? Just a month or so ago, this team was 1st in the league in preventing runs. The offense was pretty mediocre after a slow start, but the pitching was excellent despite shaky BP all year. Then the offense really started to crank it up and pitching started pulling a Pujols after 6 weeks. I periodically check the Angels standing in runs scored and runs allowed and when they were just starting to pull themselves out of a miserable season they were first in runs allowed. Now they are about 4th or 5th, but all the while the offense has exploded. There was that fun month and a half where the offense was developing but the pitching was declining, but still good and they played .700 baseball but outside of that stretch it has been completely frustrating. I suppose there is a chance it could swing back the other way and we could have another month of .700 ball again. Here's hoping.
