The serious bidness of spring training has commenced for the Angels. In addition to all five starters getting more or less in shape and taking their regular starts, it now appears that Scioscia has decided on Jeff DaVanon as his DH and 2-spot hitter, and that the regulars will be getting most of the at-bats from here on in. Well, good. In the former case, I might argue that Kotchman should be the regular DH, but I suspect that he'll be getting plenty of at-bats anyway, and the important thing is that the team be allowed to find its routine.
