GAME 126 - ANGELS AT YANKEES
NEW YORK -- The Angels will have you believe it was only one loss, no more, no less.
But their 4-2 setback to the New York Yankees Thursday night had a little more significance in the standings, what Angels manager Mike Scioscia calls their ``report card.''
For the previous two days, the Angels were among the teams in a three-way tie for first place in the American League West. After Thursday's loss before 43,222 at Yankee Stadium, it's now a two-way tie between the Seattle Mariners and Oakland A's, and the Angels are in third place for the first time since June 25.
With a possible strike only a week away, the Angels are out of playoff position. But that could change as soon as today, considering the Angels are still only one game out.
``None,'' Scioscia said when asked the significance of being in third place. ``We're going to look at the stan...

Joe Blanton has been the worst pitcher in baseball this season, and that’s not an exaggeration. Whether he’s been starting or relieving for the Los Angeles Angels, his results have been equally awful. In fact, he’s been so bad that he could win the pitching triple crown … in all the wrong categories. Blanton currently […]
ROLL WITH THE PUNCHES
A report says Torii Hunter and Albert Pujols nearly fought last year when they were teammates on the Angels. Hunter is now with Detroit.
Rumors of Los Angeles Angels 1B/DH Albert Pujols demise have been greatly exaggerated. At least according to Albert Pujols. Despite what is unquestionably his worst season in the majors (fewest AB, fewest HR, lowest avg, it goes on), he can’t wait for next season to prove doubters wrong.
According to Enrique Rojas of ESPNDeportes.com, Albert feels like there is optimism to...

After losing three of four to the Yankees and just barely avoiding being swept by the Astros, the Angels’ season is more about finding usable pieces for 2014 than it is about competing in 2013.
The Angels made a couple of minor moves Friday afternoon, designating Billy Buckner for assignment and recalling right-handed reliever Cory Rasmus to take his place...

ANAHEIM, Calif. Silver linings are tough to find these days. The Angels keep looking for them, but all they see are mounting losses.
They don't have Mike Trout, who sat for a third consecutive game because of a right hamstring injury. They don't have Albert Pujols, whose foot injury has knocked him out for the rest of the season. Second baseman Howie Kendrick still isn...
While it's a good thing the Los Angeles Angels are not sending Mike Trout out to play with a lingering hamstring strain, it's concerning that the injury has not improved all that much. Many times teams will let star player try to work throughout he injury with a few days off, but it seems hamstring injuries tend to need a trip to the DL. Especially this season.
Hank Conger was lucky not to suffer a fractured hand after a fouled off bunt attempt. The Los Angeles Angels' 25-year old catcher was seen with his hand heavily wrapped after last night's game, but fortunately, the diagnosis is just a bruise.

Recently, I was asked what I think turns out to be a pretty interesting thought experiment: if Mike Trout was released by the Angels and became a free agent, but decided he did not want to sign long term with any other team and simply preferred to go year to year instead, where would the […]
In case it somehow escaped your attention, Joe Blanton is not very good at baseball. One could even go so far as to say that he is bad it. And when I say one could say that, I mean that just about everyone who has seen him pitch this season have said that or something much worse and much more expletive-laden.
It is all very funny to lambaste Blanton for being terrible. Perhaps...
Things haven't exactly gone as the Los Angeles Angels hoped they would over the past couple of seasons. The high price Angels have failed to put together a contending team despite signing several players to big time contracts and part of the reason might be because of a lack of team chemistry.One of the players who was signed to a massive deal and has failed to live up to expectations...

Worth noting: As the end of the season approaches, the Mets have already started looking ahead to the 2014 campaign. The most important part of that checklist includes shelving pitchers who have reached their innings limits. Matthew Bowman, who made the transition from reliever to starter this year, was the first player shut down under those guidelines. The 22-year-old amassed 127...
