Found August 01, 2013 on Angelswin:
By Joe Haakenson, AngelsWin.com Contributor -   JULY 31, 2002 GAME 106 - RED SOX AT ANGELS ANAHEIM -- Trying to hit Boston Red Sox pitcher Tim Wakefield's knuckleball, the Angels hitters looked like they were trying to hit a butterfly with a pencil. And coming one night after trying -- and failing -- to hit the hard-throwing Pedro Martinez could not have helped their cause, either. In fact, when Scott Spiezio doubled with one out in the fifth inning Tuesday, it marked the first time the Angels had moved a baserunner as far as second base in 14 innings, going back to the series opener on Monday. The Angels managed a run on Troy Glaus' eighth-inning home run, but it was one run too little in a 2-1 Red Sox victory before 28,227 at Edison Field. With the loss the Angels fell two games behind the first-place Seattle Mariners in the American League West, and into a tie with the Red Sox for the A.L. wild-card lead. The Angels had one last chance in the bottom of ...

Angels' Peter Bourjos 'moving in the right direction', takes BP

Angels' outfielder Peter Bourjos took batting practice yesterday in the batting cage for the first time since he suffered a fractured right wrist on June 29th. Jeff Fletcher of the OC Register spoke with Bourjos after he stepped out of the cages: #Angels Peter Bourjos took BP in the cage for the first time today. Said it felt good. "Moving in the right direction...

Angels' Scioscia ejected at Texas

Los Angeles manager Mike Scioscia has been ejected from the Angels' game at Texas. Scioscia went out to argue a play at first base when slow-footed Geovany Soto was called safe on a close play in the second inning Tuesday night. Crew chief Jerry Layne, who was at first base, heard only a few words from an irate Scioscia before tossing the manager from the game. Layne then stood...

Richards rolls again as Angels remember how to win, beat Blue Jays 8-2

What?!?! The Angels are allowed to win! I had almost forgotten that was even possible. I have to say, it feels kind of nice, even if the win was completely meaningless unless you really think there is anything on the line in this epic battle between two of the most disappointing teams in baseball. I think what really feels the best about it is that it featured another strong...

What The Angels Should Have Done…

The trade deadline is behind us, and there was no big news. One thing Angel fans wanted this off season was pitching: that lead to Jerry DiPoto to sign SP Joe Blanton, RP’s Sean Burnett and Ryan Madson. Then DiPoto traded Jordan Walden for Tommy Hanson and sent Kendrys Morales to Seattle for Jason Vargas. Lets see how these pitchers are doing right now: Blanton: 2-13...

Angels Burnett Done For Season

Los Angeles Angels reliever Sean Burnett is done for the season after an MRI showed that he has a torn flexor tendon in his left elbow.  The tear was found by Dr. Keith Meister, the Texas Rangers’ team physician. “He’s definitely not going to pitch this year,” a disconsolate Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. “This is huge.  You look at what Sean could do, and Ryan Madson...

Athletics acquire Alberto Callaspo from Angels

The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim continued dealing a day after trading Scott Downs, and have sent third baseman Alberto Callaspo to the Oakland Athletics in exchange for Grant Green. Callaspo will play second base for Oakland. This trade is more than a rental for Oakland, as Callaspo is signed through next year, when he'll make $4.875 million. The 30-year old only extensively...

A's Send Green To Angels For Callaspo

Seeking an upgrade offensively against right-handed pitching, the Oakland A's acquired switch-hitting infielder Alberto Callaspo from the Los Angeles Angels. The price for Callaspo was a steep one, as A's 2009 first-round pick Grant Green was sent back to Anaheim.

Good Luck Rebuilding

By Jason Sinner, AngelsWin.com Contributor -  I keep seeing tons of internet chatter from Angels fans about selling off the teams spare parts to make them better......eventually. Yet a bad loss tonight and many are still pissed even with little doubt about the outcome of this season.  On top of that, we traded a 38yo middle relief lefty specialist about to become a FA...

Angels 8, Blue Jays 2

The Angels and the Blue Jays both began the year expecting to be in a pennant race when August rolled around, not marking time through the final weeks of dismal seasons. Mark Trumbo and the Angels still aren't giving up, and they won the year's first meeting between two of the AL's biggest underachievers. Trumbo homered in the Angels' four-run first inning, Garrett...

Angels stand pat on deadline day, making for an interesting off-season

Well, that was a bust, wasn't it? A day after triggering an Alberto Callaspo trade, the Angels seemed primed to move Howie Kendrick today. NOPE. It turns out that the Angels decided to stand pat after they were unable to get the kind of return on Kendrick, Aybar, Trumbo or anyone else. That kind of sucks. Not because I wanted to see anyone specific get dealt but because...

Angels send Callaspo to Oakland for Grant Green in possible precursor to Howie Kendrick trade

An otherwise painfully sloppy Angels-Rangers game took an interesting twist Alberto Callaspo was removed from the game half way through. As it turns out, he was traded to the Oakland Athletics in exchange for infielder Grant Green. On first blush, it is hard not to like this deal for the Angels. Callaspo was never a big part of their plans and they have semi-viable options to...

Series Preview: Angels vs Blue Jays vs Post-Deadline Stress Disorder

  vs. MATCH-UP MOTTOS THURSDAY, 8/1: Garrett Richards vs. Josh Johnson: No ball left behind With the way these two pitchers have been throwing the past season it's easy to say there won't be many balls left behind. Every ball will find a bat, or at the very least the backstop behind the plate with the way Richards tends to overthrow nearly everything...
