Many of the fans of my favorite baseball team, are restless. The Angels missed out on all the bigtime free agents they said they wanted to get this winter. Again, it looks like the Big, Bad Yankees and the now almost as Big, Bad Red Sox are again going to be the talk of the coming season in the American League.
And even in the Angels own division, the other teams have improved themselves.
But again, in 2001 the Angels finished 41 games out of first place.
And in 2002, they started the season 6-14. They wound up with 99 wins, but didn't win the division. But with a team really devoid of big name stars, thwy wound up winning a World Series title. So, you gotta cling to the hope.
Yep, hello sports fans - here I am, two days before football championship Sunday - talkin' baseball.
