2. Kirk Gibson is pretty blunt. "I shouldn't say this, but we have a lot of really good ballplayers. I'd rather have a lot of bad ballplayers who win ballgames."
3. Except for parking, prices at Dodger Stadium and Angel Stadium match up fairly well (from print edition):

4. The Angels are not popular outside of Anaheim. "The Angels ranked last in the major leagues in road attendance last year, next to last in the previous year." (Although SeatGeek only places them in the bottom seven this year).
5. Some stadium giveaways weren't so popular this year.
