    Actually, which team has more black players on it? Or latino players? You'd think most of LA would be Angel fans.

    I would trade owners easily.

    Managers? I don't now about that. I'm not enamored about Torre, but Mike Scioscia is overrated in my eyes and has that small ball mentality I hate.

    With players it gets a little muddled. I would trade Penny for Santana but I wouldn't trade Kemp for anybody on the Angels. I like the young players on the Dodgers more than the Angels. I like our farm system more than the Angels farm system. The Angels just have a huge advantage with veteran players, but I wouldn't trade any of our young players for any of the Angels young players.

    Nope, wouldn't do it. One part of being a fan is sticking by your team through thick and thin. If I was to trade my team for the Angels, how much of a fan am I? So the answer is no. Plus, I can't stand K-Rod.

    Are you a bitter Dodger fan or something? Here is something else the Angels rank number 1 in: wins in the majors. Get a life man.
    C'mon guy, if you are a lifelong Angel fan you would know most of today's Angel fans are bandwagoners. Take a look.

    Before 2002 (the year of the rally monkey)
    - Angels barely drew 2 mil per season
    - About 25k per game
    - Rarely would you see somebody wearing an Angels cap around town

    Post 2002
    - Angels draw well over 3 mil per season
    - 41-42k per game
    - Every douchebag in OC has a shiny red hat and a black one (cause they're cool)

    Yeah, and it's now been six years since they won the World Series and they are still drawing those numbers. Yes, it's obvious they got a boost and got people in the area interested in baseball after they won, but they are sustaining those numbers now. How long does it take before it stops being a bandwagon and starts becoming a good core of fans? If they still draw these numbers for the next ten years are you still going to complain about their fans?

    Look at the D-backs for example. Won the World Series in 2001, drew over 3 mil the following season. Its been all downhill since then.

    Hell, even the Dodgers couldn't draw out here until they made the World Series in '74, but that was all the boost they needed to secure a solid fan base for the next 30 years. I see the same thing happening in Anaheim, but only time will tell.

    Haha I think its the exact opposite actually. I'm not sure any other team in the league puts out a starting lineup with as many black players. (Matthews, Kendrick, Anderson, Figgins, Hunter)

The teams that have huge followings (Cubs, Boston, Yankees) have these huge followings because it sucks to actually live there. That is why they are HERE in OC. The Dodgers have so many fans because when the Raiders left, their fans had only the Doyers to latch onto. The Dodgers had a lot of success many decades ago and have been here longer in the 2nd most populated city in the US. OC is just a small county. And, it is obviously "cooler" to be a Dodger fan. Like being a member of a gang. Admit it Dodger fans, you would trade your entire team for the Angels owner and entire organization or players, managers and coaches, no questions asked.
    Oh, hey, what's up orange curtain, didn't see you there.

    This post was, in a word, disgusting. And wrong. That would be a second word.

    "Like being a member of a gang." ...who are you, Bill O'Reilly? Don't answer that.

    Also, Dodger attendance has absolutely nothing to do with the Raiders. We call this a "non sequitur."

    You call it the "OC." ...seriously? To quote Jason Bateman, "don't call it that." Actually, call it whatever you want. As the poll suggests, nobody's going to care.

    I'm still not sure if "Doyers" is derogatory.

    Trade teams? "No questions asked?" Really dude? Really?? Not the pitching staffs (Dodgers #1 in the NL, #4 in Majors, Angels #8). And the offenses? Also extremely comparable. Managers? No, I'll pass on small ball city. And as far as GMs go, I think they're both trying to match each other each offseason as far as who can make the more retarded signings.

    Yes. Angels better record. They're a good team. We've established this. Their run differential suggests their record is way better than what it should be, but hey, that's baseball. In terms of everything else: "What ASUCruz said."

    But we have a trophy case full of World Series titles. You have one. I mean, that's nice. But we have more. Plenty more. That would be a: bad deal.

    Keep enjoying the curtain. I'll stick with all my gangster homies up here at Dodger stadium enjoying some Los Angeles Dodgers of Los Angeles baseball.

    Very similar to the Ducks tooting their horn about the 70+ straight sellouts.

    Living in the OC I can say there are a lot of hard-core Angels fans. There are also way too many bandwagoners (many of them bro' posers with TAPOUT shirts that think they're Jesse James or an MMA fighter, I like to call them "Mikes") but that happens when one team in an area is winning more than the other. Once the Dodgers win their next World Series you'll be seeing more LA hats in the "OC".

    But for AB to say we'd trade our team for theirs....F*** NO!

    I've been a Dodger fan since I was born and that will never change!
