CORPUS CHRIST! TIMES, Fri., Aug. 13, T97T 3-F Angels Gripe Again LOS ANGELES ffll -- Two California Angels .catchers, Jerry Moses and Jeff Torborg, criticized the club's management Thursday and asked to be traded. In separate interviews Avith the-Los. Angeles Times while tie team was in New York to play the Yankees, Torborg said he has "no respect for the Angels uniform" and Moses called the team "poorly run from top to bottom." Manager Lefty Phillips, already plagued this season with the Alex Johnson and Tony Conigliaro cases, responded: "We're not exactly talking about Gabby Hastnett and Elston Howard. All of this is riot worth commenting on." Moses, 25, \yho came to the Angels from Boston along with Conigliaro last winter, called Angels' G e n e r a l Manager Dick Walsh "a detriment to baseball." He said Phillips is "unsure of his actions and disorganized." "I simply want to be traded," Moses said. "There's a lot more wrong with this club than the Johnson and Conigliaro cases. It's poorly run from top to bottom. "Lefty Phillips tears down a players's confidence rather than building it up. He is un- .sure of -his actions and disorganized. NavarroGets Decision Win LOS ANGELES (AP) Ruben Navarre, 132%, Los Angeles, despite bad cuts above both eyes, scored a unanimous 10-round decision over Tony Jumao-as, 131%, The Philippines, Thursday night at Olympic Auditorium. Navarro, whose record improved to 264-2, outboxed his Cebu City opponent to gain a big lead in the early rounds. In a companion scheduled 10-rounder, Thurman Duren, 149%, Los Angeles, stopped u n b e a t e n Roy Barrientes, 148%, Fort Worth, at 1:57 of tJie seventh round. "The leadership just isn't there and it starts at the ,top," Moses said. "Walsh is a detriment to baseball. He has no appreciation of players' needs or feelings." Moses, who said he would like to play,the Yankees, is batting .238 while sharing catching duties with" John Stephenson. Torborg, 29, has missed much of the season with a broken finger. He came to the Angels last spring 1 on waivers from the, Los 'Angeles Dodgers, where he had complained of being a reserve catcher. "I feel like I'm still on the disabled list," said Torborg, who now says he wants to be No. 2 cather for the Yankees or Mets. "Even when I wasn't playing with the Dodgers, I never felt as low as I do now. The Dodgers, at least, were in pennant races and I could understand not playing. "I've had it in California. I just want to get back to New York . . . with the Yankees or the Mets. "The front office here dees what has to be done and that's it. On Ms club I can't even respect the uniform I am wearing," Torborg said.
