    It's good to see some American League teams building a team with the best of fundamentals -- speed. It's a very exciting brand of baseball to watch.

    On a somewhat related note..... last summer I was watching the ESPN highlights of an Angels game with the sound off, so the close captions came on. Instead of Juan Rivera in the outfield it said (get ready)... JOAN RIVERS.
