BASEBALL

May 23, 1993|By PETER SCHMUCK

The California Angels might look like an early-season flash in the pan, but they are not being taken lightly by the first-place Chicago White Sox -- as evidenced by Frank Thomas' response when someone asked if the Angels were developing into a contender.

"The Angels are a contender right now," Thomas said. "They have a bunch of no-name players who play their butts off. Sometimes it's better to have a bunch of no-names than a team full of superstars."

No doubt, there are plenty of Mets fans who would be quick to agree.
