Rejoice, cyclists! Thanks to Gov. Jerry Brown's signature, those ton-plus cars whizzing by you soon must do so at a distance of at least three feet -- or not much more than the length of one arm.

But for some readers, it's the cyclists who need to be more cautious.

The Angels media guide lists outfielder Kole Calhoun at 5 feet 10, though Manager Mike Scioscia has his doubts. "What is he, 5 foot 3?" Scioscia joked after Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Texas Rangers in Angel Stadium. "If you put him on the rack for a couple weeks he might get to 5-9. I'm gonna say he's a solid 5-8. " Asked how tall he actually is, Calhoun said, "For real? I have no idea, unless we took a ruler to it. I write 5-10 for everything. I'm sticking to it. " BOX SCORE: Rangers 4, Angels 3 However tall - or short - he is, the left-handed-hitting Calhoun has a nice height-to-power ratio.
