Frankie Rodriguez is making Angels fans out of Orange County Hispanics. This is something the Angels have worked on for years, although I've always gotten the sense that they've done so begrudgingly, because they can't woo Dodgers fans away. They've taken some positive steps, like broadcasting all the games in Spanish and providing free transportation to games from Santa Ana, but there's no substitute for a genuine, bona fide playoff hero. Hopefully they'll build on this.
