Which SoCal team is more poorly run?

I knew I would get someone from OC riled up with that!

OC is actually not that bad and some parts are really nice. In fact, its probably a nicer place to live than the vast majority of places in the US, it is just a little too suburban for my tastes.

By the way, SD is great--if I ever moved back to SoCal, that's where I would be headed.

LA pulled out of the RJ deal, because Vasquez said he wouldn't resign there. LA would have lost Vasquez in a year. They had no choice but to forget it. Both teams made the playoffs last year, and both were in top 5 for attendance, and the Angels won 2 years ago. Both franchises are running better then most.

I have to give the Dodgers props for one thing though. At least they didn't sign Chan Ho Park to a fat contract a few years ago. It could be worse.

It has to be the Dodgers. What other team goes out of its way to either let go or trade players who prove they can hit in that stadium.... ?

Piazza, Shef, Beltre, just to name a few.

And then in turn fail to give the right contracts to the right pitchers.

They deal Pedro, then later sign Dreifort, for example.

Unless someone on the pitching staff starts pitching shutouts like Orel Hershiser did in 1988, this will be a long season.

And somewhere along the line, the Brass upstairs will wonder why JD Drew does not hit in LA like he did for his other teams.
