Found January 23, 2012 on The Flagrant Fan:
Despite rumors to the contrary last night on Twitter (And rumors went bananas last night), Bobby Abreu is still a member of the Angels and according to the wonderful website, MLB Depth Charts, Abreu is still penciled in to the Angels' starting line up as this seasons' Angels designated hitter. That could change, of course, with a trade or if the Angels decide to eat the last year of Abreu's contract.

Thanks to loyal reader azhalofan, I've been wrestling with a problem all weekend long: Mike Trout shouldn't wear #27. Normally, such trivial matters don't bother me, but this one does.  #27 is Vladimir Guerrero's number and someday, it will likely be retired by the Angels.  If Trout lives up to the hype, his number will be retired twenty years from now too.  How...
