Peter Gammons has some nice things to say about the Angels in his latest column (scroll down to "Steinbrenner just doesn't get it"). Leaving aside "there is no statistic or dollar figure that applies to Erstad," which will be news to Ersty's agent, my favorite is "[F]ew teams ever enjoyed winning more than the 2002 Angels. Even if the Yankees sweep the 2003 World Series in four games, they or their fans will never experience what the Angels experienced." I think that should be engraved over the gates at Edison Field.
