ANGEL EYES: CBSSPORTS.com's Matt Snyder examined the "battle for L.A." between the Angels and Dodgers and broke down the "tale of the tape" in several areas, including the team's home ballparks. Angel Stadium of Anaheim was "once Anaheim Stadium, a '60s-'70s style cookie-cutter yard that housed the NFL's Rams in addition to the Angels." It then was "completely revamped into a baseball-only stadium prior to the 1997 season, most notably the trees, rocks and cascades in the outfield." But now, the Dodgers are "making $100 million worth of renovations to Dodger Stadium." Snyder: "Still, I lean toward Anaheim due to the aesthetic scene in the outfield" (CBSSPORTS.com, 12/13).
