We've always hailed the Orange County Register's sports section as one of the best in the country and about the only good thing left in the paper that's not business columnists Jeff Collins and Jonathan Lansner. And the depth of that section is such that their most impressive reporter this year isn't one of their vets, but rather a kid: Pedro Moura, the beat reporter for your Anaheim Angels of Anaheim and Los Angeles Dodgers who still looks like the USC undergrad he once was. One of the much-ballyhooed hires under idiot owner Aaron Kushner, Moura is one of the few that paid off: He works his clubhouse and front-office sources as if a vet; writes crisp, lucid prose; and can pop off the occasional righteous column that makes the Sports Illustrated Rick Reilly seem as much a blowhard as ESPN-era Rick Reilly. His prize catch this year was getting an Angels executive to admit he prefers rich fans to poor ones (that pendejo later left the team in the ensuing uproar). Be warned, Reg editors: Moura is a rising star destined for Grantland or VICE Sports unless you treat—and pay—him well.
