The End Of The Angels As The Angels?

I don't have any long-form commentary on this right now, and I don't have any long-form commentary on this right now because we'll see if anything actually changes over time, but I wanted to highlight a quote from new Angels GM Jerry DiPoto, from an interview with Jim Bowden:

Bowden: The Angels have been a poor OBP team in general the past few years. Are you going to address this deficiency?

Dipoto: Yes. The changes have to start at the grassroots level in player development. I do respect and admire the Angels’ aggressive style of play on the bases and in the batter’s box, but going forward, we will see a shift on the roster with players that get on base more. The question is if on-base percentage is something a player is born with or a learned trait, and that can be argued, but bottom line is we need to improve in that area at all levels.

Scioscia: I'm sorry, Jerry, but I'm afraid
Scioscia: I'm afraid that we'll have to
Scioscia: /looks back
Mathis: /nods
Scioscia: I'm afraid that we'll have to let you go.
Dipoto: So that's how this has worked.
Mathis: /throws smoke grenade at ground
Mathis and Scioscia: /disappear
