In what initially seemed like deja-vu, the Los Angeles Angels seemed to be duplicating their season of a year ago. It was then when they stole the headlines, signing free agent Albert Pujols and LHP CJ Wilson. This made a very good team seem better as the Angels were the favorites to win the AL West division. The Angels started out 2012 by going 8-15, but were 26-26 by the end of May. They played good baseball for the better part of the balance of the season, but still finished short of making the postseason, finishing at 89-73. Of course, most of the success was led by the play of Mike Trout, without whom the team may have never recovered from said bad start.
Once again, the Angels gained some headlines this past offseason, signing OF Josh Hamilton from rival Texas in what seemed like a reasonable 5 year contract. After a similar bad start (9-17 in April), the Angels seemed on the same path finishing May at 16-13, but were just 14-13 in June. But the team was just 4 games unde...

FROM BAD TO WORSE
Albert Pujols has been placed on the DL with a partial tear of the left plantar fascia, and he reportedly could miss the rest of the season.
Albert Pujols will likely sit out the rest of the season after suffering a partial tear of the plantar fascia in his left foot Friday night an injury that forced the Angels slugger to the 15-day disabled list Sunday.

Per Danny Knobler of CBS Sports, Albert Pujols may not play another game during the remainder of the 2013 season. Pujols is suffering from plantar fasciitis and is expected to miss a significant amount of time. The only cure for this issue is rest and lots of it. The only way for the team to know how long he will be out for is to take it by a week-by-week basis.
Mark Trumbo is expected...

That, ladies and gentlemen, is a $137 million white flag you see being waved atop the Big A. As was suspected after he re-aggravated his foot on Friday night, the Angels announced that Albert Pujols has a torn plantar fascia in his left foot and will quite likely miss the rest of the season.
As devastating as that might sound, it is actually a stroke of serendipity for the Angels...
Albert Pujols, in year two (!) of a deal that will make past Los Angeles Angels Of Outer Rancho Cucomonga death deals look like nothing, DL'd for the year. His OPS was all of 767, so it's not like this is going to be a bitter loss for the Angeles to take... but dear heaven, do the Angels need for an NBA/NHL style amnesty experience to kick in right about now.Oh, and...

The Angels dropped three of four to the A's in Oakland are 13 games out of first place and probably won't have Albert Pujols (partial tear in his left plantar fascia) for the rest of the season.
Time to sell?
The Angels don't expect to be very active before Wednesday's non-waiver 1 p.m. PT Trade Deadline sources with the team continue to say. But they...

I keep seeing tons of internet chatter from Angels fans about selling off the teams spare parts to make them better......eventually.
Yet a bad loss tonight and many are still pissed even with little doubt about the outcome of this season.
On top of that, we traded a 38yo middle relief lefty specialist about to become a FA...
