Let's face it, Charlie Sheen has taken over all media. Who am I to resist? Sheen may be a Reds fan, but he does live in California, so why not try and let him live out his dream of playing in the bigs by having the Angels sign him? Don't think it is a good idea? Well, let this week's top ten list try and convince you otherwise.
Someone get this man a contract... NOW! He may not be alive much longer.
Despite being arguably the most talented pitcher in the Angel bullpen, Kevin Jepsen is still carving out his role in the Angel bullpen. Can he take his game to the next level and compete for the closer's job or will Jepsen get leapfrogged by the other Angel relievers and get stuck in middle relief?

If the Angels did one thing right this off-season, it was overhauling an uncharacteristically lousy bullpen. The relief corps is now stocked with a mix of reliable veterans and tantalizing young power arms, but will the unsettled closer's role make the winter makeover a whole lot of work for nothing?
Just when you thought it was safe to go back to the bullpen... FRAUDNEY!!!!!
One of the best Angels of all-time retired yesterday. Garret Anderson officially called his career over, but instead of appreciating his past glories, all I could think about was how much I hated watching him play. What kills me about that is that I know I am not alone, and so does GA. I just wish that it didn't have to be that way.
This is the most exciteable picture of Anderson that I could find on the entire internet.
