I sat down to write a nice little preview about some of the youngsters that the Angels might be planning on calling up this September to bolster their roster as they try and keep their slowly fading playoff hopes alive. This is a piece I typically enjoy writing because it is like getting to unwrap a shiny brand new toy. This year? Not so much.
Why is that exactly? Because Mike Scioscia hates young people. That's the best that I can figure. Tony Reagins can call up the entire farm system if he wants to come Thursday, but it won't make a lick of difference since Mike Scioscia has shown a total disregard for any of the youngsters he has under his command.
I don't care if Mike Trout might be the greatest player this team has ever seen, I'm not going to play him until he turns 34!
