I hope you can forgive a bit of rambling in this article, as a I am not even in high school yet. My humor revolves mostly around things like ASDFmovie, and Gangnam Style. My friends and I play violent games like tennis, where one slaps the others hand and vice-versa until one of the players wimps out. Our sleepovers revolve mainly around games like Dead Island, Left 4 Dead, and MLB 2K12. (The last one is just me and my best friend) In the past Dayton Moore has made decisions like we might at 2:00 in the morning when we are playing 2K12, and the case of Diet Code Red Mountain Dew (I have type 1 Diabetes, so we drink diet) is nearly drained. As I am currently typing this, it is very late on a Saturday night, and I have earbuds in, a laptop on the top of my lap, and the TV tuned in the MLB Network’s “Countdown, Top 25 Comebacks of All Time” But back to the point, Dayton Moore has made some pretty awful decisions since the blind squirrel that is the Kansas City Royals found an acorn in ...

Royals acquire Angels starter Ervin Santana

The Royals will likely pay Santana $13MM for 2013. So what are the Royals getting for $13MM? In 2012, Santana...

Angels start offseason by trading Santana

Los Angeles Angels GM Jerry Dipoto began his offseason rebuilding of the rotation by trading right-hander Ervin Santana to the Kansas City Royals for minor-league lefty Brandon Sisk. Santana had been a fixture in the rotation, winning 96 games (including a no-hitter in 2011) and making one All-Star team since his debut in 2005. But he had a very uneven season in 2012 (9-13, 5.16...

Will Angels' pitching moves backfire?

The first thing to understand is that teams know their own players better than anyone else. So, when the Los Angeles Angels allowed right-hander Dan Haren to become a free agent Friday night after trading righty Ervin Santana two days before, club officials sent a clear message.
