The Outside Corner:
Movember MLB Mustache Madness enters the semi-finals of the Wild Card bracket. This first match-up features a fake manager of a fake team with fake terrible players that were forced upon him having a mustache face off against a real owner of a real team with real terrible players that his team willingly acquired.
The Manager from Major League Lou Brown (aka James Gammon)
Lou Brown motivated his team to victory over his dastardly owner by making a cardboard stand-up of said owner that had removable clothing, revealing a nude picture of the owner. I REALLY hope he doesn't resort to that same tactic against this owner.
He beat another owner, then a gneral manger and he'll now face off against a manager, granted a pretend manager, but he can run the whole baseball operations gamut if he pulls out a victory here.
Time to vote! (one vote per matchup per day)

These past few weeks I've been wondering exactly when the Angels were going to finally dip their toes into the offseason and make some moves, or at least have themselves involved in some tasty rumors.
