See all those entries down there that say "Tony Pierce" at the bottom? Uh huh, and the poor guy wanted to add coverage of the city's real baseball team — the Dodgers — and that AL one that lives in the Anaheim of Los Angeles, and only shows up on your teevee sets. That's where I come in. My name's Rob McMillin, and I've been operating a dual-purpose blog over the last three years covering both local baseball teams at a particularly interesting time in their respective histories. The Angels won a World Series title a few years ago, they've goth a highly-regarded farm system, a rich owner willing to spend money aggressively (but generally not foolishly) on free agents, and they're in the second-largest media market in the country. In short, they no longer look like the "jinx-plagued doormats" they had been for most of their existence.
