Los Angeles Angels
Two season highs were matched tonight for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim in their 11-3 victory over the Seattle Mariners. The final line on the scoreboard in right field had the Angels with 21 hits, and on the left field side, had 11 K’s, nine of those coming from Jason Vargas, a season high for the young talent.
Jason Vargas allowed just four hits and two runs, that could be constituted as contraversial (see later in article). Over the night, Vargas threw 109 pitches, 73 that were strikes, only four balls that missed in the same at bat (one walk) and he sent nine back to the bench by way of the K, five looking or whiffing on his 80-mile-per-hour changeup
The last time Aaron Harang pitched in Anaheim, a certain young talent decided he wanted to make history. Mike Trout hit for the cycle nearly a month ago, and decided he’d make history one more time with Harang as the starter. In the bottom of the sixth inning, the Angels messed around a little, and scored seven runs, but one, ju...

The award for the most creative stadium giveaway this season goes to the Los Angeles Angels.On Tuesday, the Angels gave away mesh hats featuring a fish protruding from the center in honor of All-Star center fielder Mike Trout. How awesome is that, folks?A big round of applause goes to the team's marketing department for coming up with the clever idea.The fashionable cap sure...
Josh Hamilton grounded into three double plays and struck out the other two times he came to the plate. Mike Trout did everything he could to will his team's offense into something resembling legitimacy. Instead, he was anchored at first, with Scioscia failing to employ his favorite (until this year) offensive tactic of activating his speedy base runners.

Last Week: 1
Mike Trout - With the week he just had, the Angels should see to it that his entire extended family attends every single one of his games. I imagine giving him a fat contract extension would allow for him to pay for that himself. Sounds like a win-win...
Faith is a funny thing. For some it defines who they are as a person. It serves as the guiding principle of their entire life. For others, it is a crutch, a convenient excuse, a self-defense mechanism. In a lot of cases, it is both of those things for one person and there is no better example of that than Josh Hamilton.
We all know that Josh Hamilton is a man of great faith....

GAME 66 - ANGELS AT DODGERS
LOS ANGELES – A Tim Salmon home run helped push the Angels to an early lead, but Jarrod Washburn gave up back-to-back home runs in the sixth and the Dodgers rallied for a 5-4 victory before 52,183 at Dodger Stadium.
Salmon’s two-run homer in the fourth inning off Dodgers starter Hideo...
“One thing I’ll always knows, is that you’ll never know what will happen in baseball. Today, I’m wearing a hat with a fish on it.” – Reuben, the usher to the Angel Stadium press box.
Well, it seemed like that quote was true, as tonight, four solo home runs, and extra inning heroics were the final offensive factor in tonight’s 3-2 victory for the Seattle Mariners, over...
During the recent draft, I happened to be on vacation, and even though I love this game and I LOVE prospects, there isn’t much that could take my focus away from my wife, the Atlantic waves and a cocktail. Still, I’d done some homework before the draft on some players and did a little more digging following the draft as well. We here at MWAH do our best to talk to the right...
Don't take the title too literal folks. No, the man didn't have a near death experience and almost become an angel. It was something totally different. Back in the high school days he was nearly drafted by the Angels--Los Angeles Angles (or Anaheim back in his day I believe).
Like many kids in high school, Tebow was a multi-sport athlete and played baseball in the...
Over the years the Angels have done well by themselves by beating up on the drecks of the AL West. If they are going to emerge from their season long slumber, they'd be wise to start doing that very thing once more. Granted, it didn't work out so well against the Astros, but when all else fails, there are the Seattle Mariners.
For a minute there it looked like the Halos...
Mariano Rivera struck out Albert Pujols with the bases loaded to
end the Angels' five-run rally in the ninth inning, and the New
York Yankees snapped their five-game losing streak with a wild 6-5
victory over Los Angeles on Sunday.
Excuse me, but I need to soak my head in a bucket of ice water.We held on - fingers to chalkboard - to beat the Los Angeles, California, Angels of Anaheim, basically because they ran out of young players in the ninth inning, and had to send up old Albert Pujols, who is practically as ancient as Mariano.I worry when balls keep dunking in against Mo. That's what happened. Nobody...

We have all read enough about George Springer to satiate our “who’s the next Mike Trout?” fix for the time being. And while Springer might indeed get thrown to the wolves in short order, the two Astros farmhands acquired in the Hunter Pence trade with Philadelphia back in 2011 deserve immediate attention as well: right-handed pitcher Jarred Cosart...
