Peter Gammons: Top to bottom, Rangers a model franchise -
About a year after former general manager Tony Reagins confided that he had a pretty good idea that when he traded Mike Napoli to Toronto that the Blue Jays would likely flip him to Texas, he and about 10 other Angels employees lost their jobs because they couldn't see that the Texas Rangers have become an equal power to the Sunday Night Baseball soap regulars of Yankee Stadium and Fenway Park.

Angels Inbox: -
The difference in ERA when Mike Napoli or Jeff Mathis is catching is well documented. However, do you know the difference in Angels wins vs. losses during those same games? I think those stats are needed to better evaluate the difference between the players. -- Rick R., Santa Ana, Calif.
