I'd keep a close eye on that Figgy situation, it looks like he's pi$$ing everyone off in the Angel clubhouse with his sloppy play and attitude. Erstad and Kennedy blasted him a couple of weeks ago and now Scioscia has ripped into him. The way the Angels are playing and with all their good young talent waiting for a chance, Figgy could be moved. If you're in an AL only league, watch out!!

The Angels more than most teams have a "team culture" because the bulk of the roster came up through the Angels system and they tend to keep their vets for their entire careers. So although Scoscia is no light weight in the clubhouse, they have a core of veteran players who will aggressively confront a player who they think isn't putting out 100%.

Sometimes this is good, but I also think it makes the Angel's Management reluctant to let go of well-liked players who can't hack it anymore and less reluctant to go outside their own farm system to fill the gaps.
