    By Adam Dodge, AngelsWin.com Senior Writer - It took nearly five months, but the Angels managed to pass the Oakland Athletics in the standings and will head into this weekend's four game showdown against their division rival with no worse than a share of first place in the American League West. At this moment the Angels hold a one-game lead with both teams in action tonight. Thursday's start to the series marks the beginning of the home stretch, one that figures to be the most exciting for the Angels in five years. While it is certainly possible the teams can split the four games and head into September neck and neck, a dominant performance by either team would create some much coveted separation. In this edition of Foe Fodder, we will take a closer look at some of the key foes standing in the Angels' way on their march to their first division title since 2009. OF - Coco Crisp When he's not dropping bloopers out of the reach of Howie Kendrick, Coco is a well respected member of the Crips' community. His gang name is Beetle. OF - Josh Reddick After a long day on the diamond, Josh spends his free time hanging drywall in Modesto. IF - Eric Sogard Eric pulls double duty for the A's as a slick fielding middle-infielder and team CPA. He also dabbles in IT and makes the best gosh darn pina coladas north of Solvang. SP - Sonny Gray Sonny likes legos, fig newtons and his best friend Timmy. His favorite subject is social studies because his teacher Mr. Warren is really cool. C - Derrick Norris Has wrecked teammate and roommate Josh Donaldon's IROC Z28 three times. Worst roommate ever! Works the swing shift as head bouncer at Red Hots Burlesque across the bay in San Francisco. Rob Neyer From Wikipedia - In September 2004, Neyer used a pseudonym ("Ike Farrell") on Amazon.com to write a negative customer review of One Day at Fenway, a then-new baseball book by Steve Kettmann.[22] Neyer subsequently took offense to positive reviews that he believed Kettmann's friends and relatives had posted.[23] "How did this project go so terribly wrong?" Farrell/Neyer wrote. "Presumably the author wound up with plenty of source material, and so I can only assume that he [Kettmann] lacked either the talent or the time (or both) to shape the material into a decent piece of non-fiction."[24] A Newsday newspaper reporter quickly identified Neyer publicly as the actual reviewer.[23] On September 6, Neyer issued an article explaining his actions, "I had such a visceral reaction to Kettmann's book that I felt compelled to do something" and so, under a "pen name" he decided to write a customer review on Amazon.com.[23] "I didn’t even imagine that it could do anybody any good if I wrote as myself", Neyer rationalized.[23] Kettmann responded: "The thing that I find strange about all of this is that [Oakland A's general manager] Billy Beane, someone who I thought Rob Neyer respects, read my book cover to cover and told me he loved it."[citation needed]

    I believe "Colon" should always be capitalized whenever referring to the pitcher, otherwise it makes the entire sentence look shitty.

    I got picked to shoot the puck from center ice at a NY Rangers game at MSG. It was between the first and second period, and the ice was a disaster. Felt like I was on the sand at a beach. Missed the goal by two feet, and was booed by 18,000 people.

    I thought Brandon Wood would sign a 1 day contract, retire as an Angel, and give a ceremonial whiff to the opening pitch, with Mathis catching it.

    He only ended up going 4 innings but he struck out 10. The amazing this is he only threw 60 pitches to get those 10 Ks.

    Angels go up 3-1 just as the Astros go up 3-2 on the A's!

    I'm happy to find a backup catcher better than Conger in the offseason, but Iannetta is having a seriously underrated year offensively and is on a friendly contract. He should be our guy. We have far bigger holes to fill than that.

    This is what I hope everyone realizes. The parties are just 2 sides of the same coin. They want everything done in secret and that more than anything else should scare the shit out of everybody.

    Interview conducted by David Saltzer, AngelsWin.com Senior Writer Who doesn't love a good baseball movie? It seems like every year we have a few threads dedicated to deciding which baseball movie is the best. The discussions often split along the lines of the serious and the comedic, with fans arguing for favorites in both categories. Last year, we had an incredible baseball movie in the dramatic category, "42", in which our own Rob Goldman had some small parts. That was a great piece of film making, and something that everyone should see. As for a baseball comedy, well, it's been a while. "Major League 2" just wasn't up to the original's standard, and there hasn't been much since then. But that's about to change. Watch this preview for the upcoming movie "108 Stitches". As baseball fans, this is just what we need. With a pennant race on, and every game pulling our emotions, a good baseball comedy is just the way to blow of some tension. Going to a theater with friends for some laughs can be quite a relief at the end of a season. The movie will be available in limited release including the AMC Block 30 at Orange and the AMC Burbank Town Center 8. Better yet, "108 Stitches" will be available September 12th on demand, which means fans can watch a good baseball comedy with all the comforts of home, while enjoying some good food and drink without all the movie theater distractions. While this movie appeals to baseball fans for all teams, this movie is particularly of interest to Angels fans. That's because the movie was filmed on location with the Orem Owlz, an Angels' Rookie Ball affiliate, and co-written and produced by Jake Katofsky, the son of the Orem Owlz owner. Many of the antics included in the story are loosely based on the Jake's experiences with the Orem Owlz. And, as Jake discusses in the second interview I did with him (which will be sent out in a week), not only does the film pay homage to the great baseball comedies of the past, but also has telling tributes to some of our favorite Angels. What makes this comedy different than many of the others is that it focuses a lot on the issues off the field stuff, which as Jake put "is where the character of the game is." Everything from kangaroo courts to clubhouse shenanigans, which are areas ripe for comedy. Fans of the TV Show "Last Comic Standing" will recognize two of the stars in the film: Season 1 winner Dat Phan and Season 4 winner Josh Blue In the coming weeks, AngelsWin.com will be able to give out two sets of two (2) tickets to the premiere of the movie at the Harmony Gold Preview House on Wednesday, September 10, 2014 at 6:00 PM. We will be using trivia about the movie from the website, the movie preview and our interviews with Jake Katofsky to determine our winners on Twitter. I know I'm looking forward to seeing this movie. I hope you are too. Please click below to watch our first interview with Jake Katofsky. View the full article
