1. Sherman Johnson, 2B/3B, Burlington Bees
Past 10 Games: 12/36 (.336), 3 Doubles, 1 Triple, 0 HRs, 10 Runs, 4 RBIs, 0 SB
Overall: .246/.359/.339 with 0 HRs and 6 SB
What’s Up: If you thought Chris Iannetta was the only one that could walk an ungodly amount of times, think again. Sherman Johnson, AngelsWin's #12 prospect coming into the year, has 31 walks this season leading to a .113 swing in his average/on-base percentage. Johnson' incredible plate discipline is just one of his assets. Not only can he play both second and third-base, but he has a good glove at both positions to go along with a plus arm. The 22-year-old Johnson's bat is the part of his game that will determine how far and how well he can play. While he flashes potential of becoming a solid top of the lineup hitter, the consistency has yet to arrive. This week, Johnson slugged .472, showing that there is some sneaky power in his bat as well. ...

If you look up and down the MLB.com Top 20 prospect list for the Los Angeles Angels organizations, or Keith Law’s top 10 organizational prospects for the Angels, you won’t find Efren Navarro‘s name on either list. But after you look at his stat line, you may ask yourself why is he not on those list.
Navarro was a 50th round (1,450th overall) selection by the Angels in the...
I had a recent conversation with a fantasy baseball colleague on the value of Jered Weaver. We disagreed on his value, but only briefly got to talk about him — maybe a jab here and jab there, but I wasn’t satisfied so I figured I would take it outside…and by outside I mean this article.In my opinion, a surprising number of people out there think that it is just CRAZY to believe...

GAME 52 - ANGELS AT TWINS
MINNEAPOLIS -- Technically, the difference in the Angels' 4-2 loss to the Minnesota Twins Saturday night at the Metrodome was Cristian Guzman's two-run homer off Angels starter Kevin Appier in seventh inning.
In reality, the difference came on the pitch immediately before that...

So I’m sitting here “watching” the Angels lose to the Astros one more time. I’m at work so the watching is via ESPN’s gamecast, about the only thing ESPN does well anymore (unless they want to advertise onangelswin.com, in which case everything about ESPN is aces!). Since I don’t have a broadcast to listen to I have...
Bud Norris never started a game against Los Angeles prior to this season. After three outings this year, the Angels have seen more than enough of the Houston Astros' right-hander.
Norris dominated the Angels' high-priced lineup again with six innings of four-hit ball and Chris Carter hit a two-run homer in the seventh against Jerome Williams, leading the Astros to a 2-0...
The Angels just lost to the Astros.
The Angels just lost to the Astros 2-1.
The Angels just lost while only scoring one run off of remnants Erik Bedard.
The Angels just got swept by the Astros.
The Angels got swept in a four-game series by the Astros.
The Angels got swept in a four-game series at home by the Astros.
There is no coming back from this.
What the hell was that? How is it that Bud Norris can look like Cy Young against our beloved underachievers? Do you realize that he has beaten the Angels three times giving up one run in the process? How is that possible when facing such a vaunted lineup? Oh yeah, forgot, the Angel bats have gone silent again. So after winning 8 in row, the Angels have given most of that back in...
Remember how this past winter every Angel fan was salivating at the thought of being able to eat up the Houston Astros? We should be used to the fact that as Angel fans nothing will come to us as expected. Following that trend, the Angels have been absolutely pathetic against the Houston Astros this season and this afternoon's game was no different. Near fantastic starting pitching...
