Lots of sunshiny good feelings coming from the Register and the Times about Vlad Guerrero's first day in camp. Apparently, he can hit a little.

Meanwhile, the Angels' official site has a little puff piece on Erstad's return to first base. His lack of offensive production over the last couple of seasons is nowhere to be found, and is alluded to only elliptically by Erstad himself:
"My team goals are always the same," Erstad said. "My personal goal, I guess, is to stay healthy for the whole season. Any other personal goals I'll just keep to myself.

In fairness, he could easily have been talking about winning a Gold Glove. But let's hope that one of those personal goals he doesn't want to share involves reaching base a little more often.
