Fantasy Trade Tips: You Want Mike Trout For What?

We’ll continue our look at the ten fantasy baseball trade hounds you may or may not want to find yourself in negotiations with this season. Every league has that dude that sends you a low-ball offer for Mike Trout, or maybe worse the guy who gives Mike Trout away for next to nothing because he just got back from his two year cruise in Aruba. We've all interacted with one at...

Mike Trout Makes History Once Again, Angels Make New Season High Marks

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...

Los Angeles Angels Of Anaheim Win 1-0 On Wild Pitch Run From Mike Trout

For the first time since July 21, 2011, the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim won a game by the final score of 1-0, tonight’s victim was the Seattle Mariners. The two-hour, twenty-seven minute affair only had one run, coming off of an outstanding individual performance in the sixth inning from the one, the only, Mike Trout. Trout lead the inning off with a speedy double to right center...

Wil Myers: How does Tampa Bay Rays outfielder compare to Mike Trout?

With Wil Myers set to make his major-league debut for the Tampa Bay Rays Tuesday night, there is a natural comparison that arises between him and another outfielder who made his debut with a different American League club just shy of two calendar years ago. If comparisons are going to be made between Myers and the Angels’  Mike Trout, they should start in 2011, the season where...

Mike Trout and Yasiel Puig: A Hustle Double Comparison

The most exciting play in baseball, within context, is presumably the walk-off grand slam with two outs and a three-run deficit. Within context, I imagine it’s almost a perfect correlation between play excitement and Win Probability Added. This is why WPA works as both a baseball statistic and emotion statistic. Any immediate reversal of deficit to victory is going to be outstanding...

Trout, Wilson lift Angels past M's

C.J. Wilson pitched two-hit ball for seven innings, Mike Trout scored the only run on a wild pitch by Joe Saunders and the Los Angeles Angels edged the Seattle Mariners 1-0 Wednesday night. Wilson (6-5) struck out three, walked two and allowed only two runners as far as second base en route to his fifth straight victory over the Mariners. Trout legged out a leadoff double in the...

Mike Trout and CJ Wilson win the game; Angels defeat the Mariners, 1-0

Rarely in baseball can you see two players basically win the game for their team. It's simply not typical of sport that allows its teams to carry 25 players on their active rosters.   However, this Angels season has been anything but typical, and they won a game in untypical fashion Wednesday night. CJ Wilson was actually sharp, giving up only two hits in seven innings...

Josh kicks up "failure" to epic proportions; Angels fall to the Mariners, 3-2

  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.   The...

Check the site for my explanations!Patrick Corbin did well yesterday — 8 IP, 7 K, 2 ER — but that wasn’t enough to pick up a win against the Marlins. Mike Trout scored 3.50 points to lead all of my batters. It wasn’t...

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- C.J. Wilson pitched two-hit ball for seven innings, Mike Trout scored the only run on a wild pitch by Joe Saunders and the Los Angeles Angels edged the Seattle Mariners 1-0 Wednesday night.

Angels Player Power Rankings - Week 12

RANK PLAYER CHANGE COMMENTS 1 -- 0 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...

Cusp Dwellers: Houston Astros in the PCL

Photo Credit: BeGreen90/Flickr 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...

Sunday’s win sums up the Yankees season

For eight innings on Sunday, all was going right for the Yankees. CC was dominating, the offense was finally producing more runs than a taco bell, and overall, everything just seemed to be going their way. But with just three outs left, all hell broke loose. A double by Mike Trout and a walk to Albert Pujols cut Sabathia’s 9th inning short, keeping him from going to distance....
