I'm not an Angel fan, but my opinion is that you misplaced your list
of future stars above, and got it mixed up with a list of young stiffs...

When you're talking about the AL West, that description could fit all the
teams.

I think it was Ralph Barbieri who put it best on his radio show tonight:
"AL West... geez... I just can't pick *any* of these teams."

: With a lineup of stars (Tim Salmon, Chili Davis, Tony
: Phillips) and future stars (J.T. Snow, Eduardo Perez, Garret Anderson,
: Damion Easley) the angels seem primed to rise to the top.

Ho ho. Stop trolling.

Well, If I was to compare your future stars (Snow, Perez, Anderson, and
Easley) with my future stars (Greer, Frye, Gil, and Oliver)  I think that
Texas' future is brighter than California's.  Even if Benji is a dog.  :)

I am disgusted with the sportswriters. Almost all of them think that the

The division is so close that I think the winner will be close to the cellar.

My opinion is - you are too optimistic.

The Angels have a shot at winning the division, but so does everyone else in
the division.  They need a number of things to bounce their way -- Snow and
Easley must bounce back from their disappointing '94, and the pitching staff
must somehow hold up.  A few lucky bounces will give them the division, but
that is true for everyone else in the division.  And luck being equal, I think
Texas would win the division.

I think that the Angels are going to finish on top of the Oakland A's, though,
and will be neck-to-neck with the Seattle Mariners.  But this division is way
too close to call.

When did J.T. Snow become a future star again? It's been three
years since his phenominal year in Colombus, two since the year
when he started off hot and ended in AAA. He's got NO potential.

Well, 3/5ths of the problem is the rest of that starting staff.

Also, Anderson is unlikely to see serious PT unless one of the other players
you list, particularly Snow or Perez, falls flat.  Edmonds has the CF job
now, which means a lot of balls in the gap go to the wall.  We got a
serious problem there.

They should score more, but they'll allow more.  If they get to .500, I'd be
satisfied.

Uh, what is wrong with Edmonds defensively?

Edmonds had a very, very good season defensively in left field.  Center field,
of course, is quite a bit harder to play, but I would not envision Edmonds as
a defensive nightmare.  He has high error totals -- so what?  His range is so
good that he more than makes up for that, and he also has a very strong
throwing arm.

Actually, you should be more than satisfied -- after all, the team winning the
AL Worst may be worse than .500.

Of course you will.  After all, they would have wrapped up the division
title sometime around September 10 if they play .500 ball.

        The AL West certainly is a joke isn't it?  I'm just glad I'm a
Mariners fan.  They've actually got a shot this season!  (I suppose they
did last season, too, but we all know how that ended up.)
