Would Derek Jeter appreciate the Angels' saluting his 3,000 career hits in front of the Anaheim fans? "If they cheered," Jeter said Wednesday, with a smile. The New York Yankees visit Angel Stadium next month, their first trip since Jeter got his milestone hit. Angels Vice President Tim Mead told The Times last week that the team wants "to honor the man, the player and the person in some form. " Mead said the Angels subsequently received about 100 calls and emails from fans concerned that the team would go out of its way to fete an opposing player, perhaps with a pregame ceremony.

Reggie Jackson spent the first few innings of Tuesday night's game in the Angel Stadium press dining room speaking with Tim Mead, the team's vice president of communications. No, the Angels were not trying to coax the Hall of Famer out of retirement —Jackson was there as a spokesman for the Prostate Cancer Foundation — but at this point, the 65-year-old former slugger might be an upgrade over some of the Angels' impotent bats. The Angels went down quietly again in a 4-1 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays, their fourth straight loss, sixth in the last seven games and 18th in their last 28 games since May 8. The lineup card said the Angels were at full strength, with Vernon Wells back in the outfield after missing a month because of a groin strain and second baseman Howie Kendrick playing his fourth game since being activated off the disabled list.

A jury of one returned a verdict Tuesday that satisfied the Angels and stunned the Boston Red Sox. Boston pitcher Josh Beckett was suspended for six games and fined an undisclosed amount by Major League Baseball for intentionally throwing a pitch in the head area of Angels outfielder Bobby Abreu and for "aggressive actions" after the pitch, which led to Sunday's bench-clearing incident at Angel Stadium.

Fans tuning in late to the Angels-Twins game Wednesday night on Fox Sports West might not have known Angels pitcher Jered Weaver was throwing a no-hitter. They might have noticed had they been paying close enough attention to study the line score or other graphic, but anyone waiting for the verbal cue of hearing the words "no" and "hitter" uttered in a sequence would have to wait until after a fly ball had settled into the glove of right fielder Torii Hunter for the final out. Victor Rojas, the Angels' television play-by-play announcer, and analyst Mark Gubicza decided to stick to the unwritten baseball code that a mere mention of a no-hitter might jinx it. Rojas, whose father, Cookie, played big league baseball for 15 years, said Weaver's was the third no-hitter he's called without actually saying the words.

He was there on that fateful December morning when the trigger was pulled and he was helpless, powerless, unable to do anything but watch as his best friend in the business was blown away, all the way to New York. Worse still, Tim Mead had the dirty task of breaking the news to the media. That was Mead's job then--director of public relations for the Angels, or, in the official parlance of the period, "Weekly Bearer of Bad Tidings." Mead was the one who got to announce on Dec.

They have become a phenomenon. A sickness. An obsession. Rotisserie baseball leagues: Can't live with 'em, can't live without 'em. Have you ever been cornered at, say, a dinner party by a guy with bad breath, a morsel of cheese dip dangling from his chin, and all he wants to talk about are his split-times for a 10K race he ran, or how he really thinks a Crescent wrench is the most valuable tool in a tool box? Now take that conversation, multiply the boredom by 1,000, and that's what it is like to be an outsider in the middle of a Rotisserie league talk.

Jackie Autry, the widow of the Angels' founding owner, thanked Disney for its dedication to the legacy of Gene Autry but said Wednesday she would have preferred the company sell the team to a local buyer. Disney reached agreement in principle Tuesday to sell the Angels to Phoenix businessman Arturo Moreno for $180 million, subject to the approval of major league owners.

You heard all about it, in this newspaper and others, on talk radio and television and all over the Internet. The Angels had celebrated their division championship by pouring beer and champagne over the jersey of Nick Adenhart, the rookie killed in April by an alleged drunk driver, and everyone had an opinion. Tim Mead, the Angels' vice president of communications, was stunned by the wave of reaction. Surely, he thought, someone would ask him for the answer he considered essential to forming an opinion: Had the Adenhart family objected to the celebration?

In the clubhouse, Mike Scioscia went about his business last week with not even the slightest trepidation about his future. To him, the biggest issue surrounding the Angels was a non-issue. He would be back as the manager, and the decision already had been made. In the front office, no one would say that. Not for weeks. Not until late Saturday, when Angels owner Arte Moreno abruptly yielded to the outside pressure to which he and his lieutenants had vowed not to yield. Scioscia is indeed coming back.

I get pictures. John Costa sends a photo of his tattered seat cushion on the club level in Angel Stadium, Section 306, Row B, Seat 5. "Unbelievable," as he puts it. I walk down the left field line Saturday and there are a number of tattered seats in more than a dozen sections. The worst are in Section 303, Row E. Although I must say, if you're returning a night later, the ripped cushions would be a great place to store uneaten food. What's up with this?
