Angels Announcer Recognizes the Best

Angels announcer Victor Rojas has a blog. He also has Vin Scully's phone number. He asked Vin for an interview. Vin obliged. Here's an excerpt (read the entire piece here):
VR: It makes sense & to a certain extent, may be similar to how writers today have to deal with the steroid era. Were you surprised that no players were voted in?

VS: No. I was not surprised. In fact, there was a sense of gratification that baseball stood up and made a declaration. So, no. I can’t say that I was happy that these players are being denied but I did feel deep inside, 'good for baseball...good for the writers...I'm glad they stood up.' Now, when it comes to just some kind of a suspicion, I'm wondering about several players who didn’t make it this time but maybe over the years they eventually will get in. And I specifically think of somebody like Mike Piazza, who had an incredible career. There is suspicion but perhaps that will disappear over the years.

I love Vin's "whatever" response to Victor saying he wants to see the Angels beat the Dodgers in the World Series. Very cool!
