PLAYERS: Joe Torre
TEAMS: Los Angeles Angels
Major League Baseball says umpires have made a mistake for the second straight day, this time during a pitching change in Houston. MLB issued a statement Friday saying umpires didn't properly apply a rule in a game between the Los Angeles Angels and Astros on Thursday night. The Angels played the game under protest when Houston was incorrectly allowed to switch relief pitchers, then dropped it after they won. On Wednesday night, umpire Angel Hernandez and his crew went to a video review but didn't reverse a clear ninth-inning home run by Oakland in a game it lost by one run at Cleveland. MLB Vice president Joe Torre later said he umpires made an ''improper call.''

Jerry Dipoto's rebuild/reload plan

Like any Angel fan, I've continued to monitor their free agency decisions and subsequent performances for the past two seasons since Jerry Dipoto was hired.  I'm beginning to recognize a pattern that likely reflects the approach Dipoto has taken toward putting his own personal touch on the Angels system.  To the untrained eye, it appears as though the Angels have a bloated...
