At first I wasn't convinced, but then I saw all the exclamation marks and agreed with you.

The Angels cheated......against themselves.

after that, shrimpin' was easy.

I used to have a picture of Dennis Kuhl practically swimming in Coors Light, but i couldn't find it.

Who is in charge of the day to day operations?

Not sure, probably Carpino.  Not that it matters.  One employee giving others drugs certainly isn’t something out of the ordinary in society.  As for the cheating it would be interesting to find out how it came out.   I know the story came out that MLB told the Angels but it’s possible it came from a guy like Bundy who pitches for us now and knew it was happening before.

I've already detected one problem
Two guys oversee KLAA and neither one fires Roger Lodge.
 
Dennis Kuhl Chairman

Dennis Kuhl begins his 16th season with the Angels after joining the Club on November 10, 2003. He was initially appointed as the Angels' seventh President before a promotion to Chairman on November 14, 2009.   Kuhl's focus centers on renewed efforts in the area of civic affairs and community outreach. Kuhl also oversees the Angels' flagship radio station KLAA AM830.

John Carpino President

He has created a stronger, more viable partnership with Los Angeles-based radio and television partners, and oversees KLAA AM830, the radio flagship of the Angels.

i think bubba got hosed. it sounds like he wasn't cheating at all, but rather prepping the balls as the clubhouse manager for the visiting pitchers. mlb allowed this "violation" of the rules for many many years because of player safety. now, due to the astros and "cheating" being a buzzword around mlb, they've decided to enforce this rule and a guy like bubba gets the shaft.

So the Home pitchers' balls are prepped in the same way as the visitors? Because of player safety?

Guess everybody is cheating then.

yes, everybody is cheating in this regard. heaney, bundy and other angel pitchers semi-openly talked about doing it themselves. it's well know to aid the pitcher's in control, which is to the hitter's benefit in regards to his safety. this is all well traveled and discussed. you can literally find it everywhere.

i'm 100% against cheating, but this isn't cheating to get an edge. this is mlb and it's players allowing a bending of the written rule because it benefits all parties. the pitchers, the hitters and the franchises that have to pay for contracts and injuries.

I haven’t heard that.

I think he was providing pitchers a pine tar based substance that the pitchers used to get a better grip on the ball. I don’t think he   had access to the baseballs before a game. 

my other response alluded to it, but you can find angel pitchers, etc. talking about how the rosin bags don't help and actually hinder gripping the baseball. they talk about pine tar for grip, acknowledging that it can help spin rate somewhat, but the real advantage is not losing control of your fastball. we will see this season if there is an increase in hit batters, allowing for the houston factor. lol.

He was selling this "Go Go Juice" on the side for his own profit.

He didn't get hosed. He got rightfully fired.

i'm open to listening to new information, but everything i've heard SO FAR is what i've already expressed.
