Dear Jerry Dipoto: Angels need to sign Yoan Moncada

Dear Jerry Dipoto, It’s time for the Angels to make another splash, this time by signing Yoan Moncada. The guy is a stud. He will be the next Jose Abreu or Yasiel Puig, even though I think Puig lets his attitude and demeanor get in the way of his success. We all know Arte Moreno [...]

Dear Jerry Dipoto: Howie Kendrick trade made no sense

Dear Jerry Dipoto, I was very disappointed when you traded Howie Kendrick for a pitching prospect. Kendrick was a big part of our team last year, and right now we don’t have anyone to replace him. I guess Matt Joyce is supposed to be the guy to fill in offensively, but looking over his stats [...]

What would a Jerry Dipoto contract extension look like?

Three seasons down and Jerry Dipoto is still the general manager of the Angels. Congrats! In fact, he’s finally coming off a season in which his job security wasn’t called into question at any point. Heck, he even had his 2015 contract option picked up. That’s real progress! If he keeps this up, he might even get himself an extension. But what would a Jerry Dipoto contract...

The Monkey attempts to #AskDipoto

Today at 11 am, the Angels will graciously hand over the keys to their Twitter to GM Jerry Dipoto. This is a great idea as it gives the reclusive Dipoto a chance to interact directly with the fans.

Dipoto: Angels formidable enough to catch up with Oakland

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- The Oakland Athletics were the team that truly brought the July 4th fireworks when they pulled off a blockbuster trade for two of the best starting pitchers in baseball Friday night.
