CHALK ONE up for an old saw that's oft ignored in pro sports, but still very true: "There's no I in team."
So what do the Angels do? They suspend one of their key players, left fielder Jose Guillen, for the rest of the season - possible playoff games included.
The much-traveled Guillen was hitting .294 with 27 home runs and 104 RBI. But he also has erupted in a string of emotional outbursts - the last, very public one being after Angels manager Mike Scioscia took him out of their Saturday game for a pinch runner.
So with logic rare to pro sports, Angels management quickly decided Mr. Guillen's cumulative tantrums hurt their team so much that they had a better chance of winning without his considerable talents.
And quite a few other Angels reportedly agreed. As shortstop David Eckstein put it: "The team is everything."
