We (Rangers fans) have a Steve Nash situation on our hands (we thought he was used up when he signed w/the Suns).

It's wait and see, but you can't imagine he'll play through that contract.

Could be a real conflict for the Almighty. We know He's a big Hamilton fan, but He has never cared for much for the Hollywood morals of Southern California.

The Angels seem to be concentrating on collecting the biggest stars in the game and overpaying them. That is very much in keeping with Hollywood traditions.

Pujols didn't help much, did he? It seems more like a move to keep butts in the seats than to win. Of course I can't fault them too much, being in Seattle where the biggest off-season move is the fence coming in.

The Giants tried that back in 1994 when they signed Darryl Strawberry in May after he had been released by the Dodgers. Strawberry already had several cocaine related suspensions under his belt, but this was going to be different because they also signed Strawberry's older brother Mike who was going to watch over him and make sure that he, literally, kept his nose clean. The stories in the paper were all full of optimism...."turned a corner..."...."finally gotten the help he needs.."...blah blah.

It lasted 29 games before Strawberry was caught again and re-suspended. He never returned to the team and was released after the season.

The 'accountability partner' was with him in Texas, so it's already proven to work for Hamilton.

Default When did California Angels caps have "halos"?

In what years did the California Angels caps have those white "halos" around the top of the crown?
