Going to have to pull for the Halos in the AL this year.....I have always like that team. I grew up a big Doug DeCinces fan. Don't ask me why....I just know I collected every card he had and wrote him letters as a kid.
On a side note.....I was a bit shocked to see Scott Boras show that much real emotion at that press conference.
Boras has a suite at Angels Stadium. Don't know why...he turned around and effed us with Teixeira.
Doug DeCinces carried the Angels in 1982. I was such a baseball nerd that year. Kept everyone's batting averages day by day (with a calculator). If you look at that every day lineup, you'll wonder how they didn't win the pennant. Relief pitching killed them. Then, in 86, DeCinces could have ended the Donnie Moore game with a deep fly ball in the bottom of the ninth (Wilfong was on third and the score was tied with one out). Gene Mauch was quoted as saying he had to find a place to live because he bet his house on DeCinces getting that guy home. If he had, Donnie Moore would have gotten the win and it would have been Mets/Angels in the Series. No Bill Buckner.
