Found August 21, 2013 on Angelswin:
When I found out that we raised $3072.00 over two days from our AngelsWin.com Charity Golf and Softball tournaments (and tailgater raffle) this past weekend for the OC Miracle League, I was reminded that Angels Baseball is much more than wins and losses within the Halosphere. Then Tim Mead showed up to talk to our group of over 100 Angels fans under the Big A and he confirmed that the Angels too are in the business of blessing others, despite being in the midst of a poor season on the field and in the standings. Tim spoke to me about Alex Collins, that Alex an Angels fan, had the opportunity to throw out the first pitch earlier in this season (May 29th). The Angels organization as whole was touched by Collin's story, rehab and the amazing progress he's made physically. Deputy Collins suffered multiple gunshot wounds to his upper body during the Feb. 12 gun battle after an exhaustive manhunt for Christopher Dorner across Southern California.

Finding bright spots amid Angels' struggles

ANAHEIM, Calif. Silver linings are tough to find these days. The Angels keep looking for them, but all they see are mounting losses.

How Much Would You Pay for One Year of Mike Trout?

Recently, I was asked what I think turns out to be a pretty interesting thought experiment: if Mike Trout was released by the Angels and became a free agent, but decided he did not want to sign long term with any other team and simply preferred to go year to year instead, where would the […]

Joe Blanton has been even worse than you think

In case it somehow escaped your attention, Joe Blanton is not very good at baseball. One could even go so far as to say that he is bad it. And when I say one could say that, I mean that just about everyone who has seen him pitch this season have said that or something much worse and much more expletive-laden. It is all very funny to lambaste Blanton for being terrible. Perhaps...

Lucie Logistics: Kyle Johnson, Who We Received For Cowgill, Has A 14 Game Hitting Streak

Worth noting: As the end of the season approaches, the Mets have already started looking ahead to the 2014 campaign.
