Dane De La Rosa rescues pigeon (video)

It appears Dane De La Rosa really is an Angel, at least as far as one little pigeon is concerned.

Pigeons often get a bad rap for being filthy and obnoxious, which is entirely unfair. I mean, I don’t get how you can associate “bad rap” with pigeons when Pigeon John and Cannibal Ox exist.

Cultural connotations aside, what Los Angeles Angels pitcher Dane De La Rosa did in his team’s game against the Oakland Athletics on Thursday night was actually pretty sweet. De La Rosa noticed a pigeon was under duress and decided to bring in back to the bullpen with him (hey, it’s a lot nice than what Randy Johnson did).

De La Rosa ended up setting the little guy free, but not before naming it “Randy.”

The cute video is below.
