If you were the head of a major corporation and were about to commit $80 million over six years to a prospective employee, wouldn't you want to meet or at least talk to that person before you made the hire? Not Walt Disney Co. Chairman Michael Eisner, who approved a massive investment in Angel first baseman Mo Vaughn this past winter without saying so much as a word to the former Boston Red Sox slugger.

If you thought Angel closer Troy Percival struggled with his control while he battled a sore shoulder and elbow for much of last season, you should have seen him warming up in the bullpen. "When you're throwing balls off the rocks and you don't know why, you start to wonder," Percival said. "It took two or three of those before I started getting loose. You like to have some idea what you're doing, especially when you only have one run to work with."

Second baseman Justin Baughman, who broke his leg in five places in a collision during a Mexican Winter League game last November, is probably facing more surgery and his chances for returning this season could be in doubt. "It's not healing the way we'd like and we're looking at ways of stimulating things," team physician Lewis Yocum said. "Right now, we're presenting him with three or four surgical options. It's not anything Justin has done, it's just the nature of the fracture.

Chuck Finley returned from a Hawaiian vacation Wednesday in time to face the decision on whether to leave the Angels, assuming the Angels haven't made the decision for him. A short conversation with Finley's representative early this week left General Manager Bill Stoneman pessimistic about the Angels' chances to re-sign the left-hander. "It's really a remote situation now," Stoneman said. "What we would offer to Chuck and what he apparently has already been offered is very different.

With all that has engulfed the Angels the last two weeks, outfielder Jim Edmonds' status has become less of an issue. He probably will play Sunday, his first game in the majors this season. Edmonds, who has played four games during a rehabilitation assignment with Class-A Lake Elsinore, tried to convince Manager Terry Collins to put him in the lineup Friday. Instead, Collins wanted Edmonds to hit in the batting cages. The two then met with Dr. Lewis Yocum.

Had this been a normal spring training, where all he had to do was get in shape and find his batting stroke, Dave Hollins might have spent the weekend getting treatment on his sore hamstring and resting until it was 100%. But a normal spring, this isn't. The 32-year-old switch-hitter is trying to fend off youngster Troy Glaus for the third-base job, so Hollins played Saturday and Sunday even though it's obvious he's not at full strength.

Manager Terry Collins said it was unbelievable. Right fielder Tim Salmon called it a joke. And they weren't talking about the Angels' performance this season. The object of their scorn was a beach ball that fell from the right-field bleachers in the sixth inning Wednesday night, just as Salmon, at the wall, was preparing to leap for David Justice's long drive. "There was no doubt the beach ball obstructed my view," said Salmon, who failed to make the catch--of the baseball or beach ball.
