Jamey Carroll called a players' only meeting before Thursday's dominant 6-0 victory by Clayton Kershaw and the Dodgers. Tony Jackson of ESPNLosAngeles.com has details. Meetings like this can't save a season, but it sounds like it was a positive event.

ESPNLosAngeles.com also has a piece that you might call "The State of Vin Scully," featuring an interview with the man himself.

The biggest local baseball news is the Angels' promotion of 19-year-old super-prospect Mike Trout to replace an injured Peter Bourjos. Mark Saxon of ESPNLosAngeles.com has more. The timing is funny because this was happening right around the time that Rich Lederer of Baseball Analysts, at Thursday's fun Fangraphs panel (thanks to everyone there for hosting), was extolling the virtues of Trout, saying that he would sign the player to a 10-year-contract right now.
