Southern California Baseball in a Nutshell

I took the opportunity of the All-Star break to boil it all down for you:

The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim in Orange County Just Up The Road From San Diego have what it takes in all categories to go all the way. If everyone is on his game.
The Padres are doing surprisingly well; a contender for the division but not the pennant. (The Cardinals; who else?)
The Dodgers have a little league ownership, a minor league team, a major league manager and an All-Star announcer. Even with eighteen (18!!) guys on the disabled list you still listen to their games when Vinnie calls them.

And now that we have all that "All-Star" nonsense over with, can we go back to real baseball?
