Jerry Dipoto Focuses on Present, but a Reckoning Looms
The Angels aren’t buyers (duh) or sellers (what?). Which makes sense.

Next time, C.J. Wilson should do a fist pump then a spin cartwheels around the mound. That would be enough to earn a stare down from Miguel Cabrera, or anyone for that matter. Saying “Woo!” because you got a called third strike, not enough to get a stare down. Sit down, chief. You got rung op looking.
Angels Prospect C.J. Cron Selected For Futures Game
Talent! The Angels have some in the minors! Hopefully the U.S. manager doesn’t get foolish and try to play Cron in the field somewhere. Because that, that could get ugly.
