Angels' GM Jerry Dipoto corresponds with fans

ANAHEIM, CA-- Growing up in Dodger and Angel territory, I collected baseball cards, ticket stubs, photographs and programs; all the things baseball-crazed youngsters live for. I was a fanatic about the game. But I was never one of the kids who wrote a letter to a player or a GM asking for an autograph or asking a question. Many of my friends did and never saw the card(s) again,...

Player Profile #90: C.J. Wilson | SP | LAA

Just when I had finally come around on C.J. Wilson as a starting pitcher, he up and leaves for a new organization. Thankfully he’s moving from the hitter-friendly Ballpark in Arlington to the hitter hell that’s Angel Stadium, but there are a lot of good reasons to like Wilson. He’s become a 200-inning starter, and he upped his strikeout rate last season to 8.30 K/9, which was...

Sorry for dragging you into hell with us, but check out a little bit of this song...

Jerry Dipoto: Angels GM and... Pen Pal?

Here's something you don't see everyday.  And by everyday, I mean any day... ever. Any fan who has ever cared about a favorite baseball team has undoubtedly spent countless hours cooking up trades that they would like to see their team make.  It's ok, you can admit, we've all done it.  Most of us are also so certain that this trade is such a fantastic idea that...

C.J. Wilson...Tupac Fan?

I've never been much of a "judge a book by its cover" kind of guy...but I would have never thought that pitcher C.J. Wilson was a "Thugluv" kind of guy.But, as it turns out, the Los Angeles Angels lefty is (or at least "Christopher" Wilson was) just that.Most high school photos of anyone are pretty embarrassing, but the only thing embarrassing about...
