Instead of our usual “let’s show lots of charts and graphs and confuse the reader into agreeing with us” approach, I thought I’d share an email exchange that I had with one of Baseball Professor’s contributors, Matt Commins. This exchange happened immediately after the Angels sent Peter Bourjos to the Cardinals on November 22 and concerns the fantasy potential of Kole...
The Sciosciapath, Arte Moreno and Arte Moreno Jr., played by Scott Schwartz (Flick from A Christmas Story and later the porn movie, A Trystmas Story), got together and declared their starting right fielder. You know what they say: just about half of opportunity and fortunately are ortun. They make a good point. Oddly enough, Scott Schwartz and Kole Calhoun look eerily alike...

The fans who received an unexpected meet-and-greet with Angels left fielder J.B. Shuck raised their arms in triumph.
Across the outfield Kole Calhoun pounded his glove with his left hand as he whooped it up.
Angels players in the dugout doffed their caps and held them aloft as a tribute.
You could go a lifetime without seeing a better catch at Angel Stadium than the one Shuck...

The Angels and the Rangers took their rivalry to new levels tonight as Angels outfielder Kole Calhoun took on Rangers Robbie Ross in the annual cow milking contest.
Calhoun, an eager "volunteer" for the contest, had a lot of pressure to perform. After all, the Angels had been victorious in their five previous competitions.
