Welcome to the Angels, Jerry DiPoto! It is great to have you on board. Go ahead and take a seat at your fancy new general manager desk and bask in the opportunity to finally get to sit in the big chair... OK, time is up! Hope you enjoyed that brief moment in revelry because now it is time to get to work because, in case you didn't notice, there is actually a lot that needs to be done around here if the Los Angeles Angels are going to get back to being contenders. Put on your hard hat, Jerry.
Yeah, I know it sucks. Most of the time when you take a new job you get a few weeks to settle in, get some training, learn the lay of the land and so on. Worst case scenario, you get a few months to get fully up to speed. DiPoto though? Well, he's got until 12:01 am EST this Thursday, and even then he might find himself behind the rest of the pack by then. However, DiPoto does have a few days to play catch up on the off-season, but to do that, he must first check off a few tasks on his GM honey-do list first.
