The Fantasy Fix:
TheFantasyFix.com’s “Tools of the Trade” is a unique guide for owners to use while attempting to make an even trade with their league-mates in a standard 12-team mixed, 5×5 head-to-head or rotisserie redraft league.
The values present in this guide are simply the basis for a trade. A full-blown analysis of each team’s strengths and weaknesses are essential prior to proposing or accepting a trade offer.
How to use the guide: Ideally, owners will agree to a trade that will aid both sides and stay within $2-3 of each other in a one-for-one and $4-5 in a multi-player deal, according to our chart.
The Week 1 “Tools of the Trade” was free for all readers, and so is this weeks! But going forward, the “Tools of the Trade” will only be available to Front Office members. Learn the benefits of being a Front Office member here.

One more note on the Angels - Orioles game. As everyone knows, Josh Hamilton has been awful so far with the Angels after signing this huge contract. He is continuing his trend from last year at swinging at everything and is batting like .208 or something. And so his manager sat him yesterday against the Orioles. That was dumb.
Why was it dumb when Hamilton just went zero for...

Let Los Angeles Angels designated hitter Hank Conger serve as an example as to why defensive shifts don't always work.Conger essentially legged out a bunt single in the eighth inning of Saturday's game against the Baltimore Orioles despite tripping while running to first base. No, I'm not kidding.Watch as Conger laid down a bunt toward the left side of the pitcher'...
During this offseason, the biggest free agent on the market Josh Hamilton signed with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. The Texas Rangers failed to resign him and he decided to sign with their American League West rival the Angels to the tune of 5 yrs/ $125M.
So far Hamilton is batting .207 with only 2 long balls and 9 RBI’s, not quite the stat line the Angeles had anticipated...

I’m sure by now you’ve realized that many of the Angels faithful have a problem with the playing of Build Me Up, Buttercup by The Foundations during the seventh inning. And by “problem” I mean the absolute hatred and revulsion that most hardcore Angels fans feel toward this song.
And it’s really a pity...

GAME 28 - ANGELS AT BLUE JAYS
TORONTO -- A bloop hit, an error, a walk and suddenly Troy Percival was in the eye of the storm again. The Angels closer, called upon to save a two-run lead in the ninth inning Friday night against the Toronto Blue Jays, didn't blink.
With the bases loaded and one out, Percival...

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Jason Vargas pitched a three-hitter for his first victory with his new club, Mark Trumbo and Mike Trout homered and the Los Angeles Angels beat the Baltimore Orioles 4-0 Friday night.
Vargas (1-3) threw 107 pitches, striking out three and walking two while getting 15 groundball outs. The shutout was the fourth by the left-hander in 136 career starts and his...
Watching the Angels this season, I keep thinking, "Why does Mike Scioscia need this?"
This is his 14th season in Anaheim. His best teams had an aggressive, distinctive style. This one revolves largely around two free-agent sluggers whose worst years are ahead of them, Albert Pujols and Josh Hamilton.
The Angels no longer run. They no longer play crisp defense. They'...

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- J.J. Hardy and Manny Machado each hit a two-run homer off Jerome Williams in his first start of the season, leading the Baltimore Orioles to an 8-4 victory over the reeling Los Angeles Angels on Sunday.
Jason Hammel (4-1) allowed four runs and nine hits through six innings, helping the Orioles tie the New York Yankees for second place in the AL East. The...
The game started out so promissing. Jerome Williams gave up a run in the top of the first, and the Angels responded by scoring three in the bottom of the first. Even when the Orioles rallied back on a two-run homerun by JJ Hardy, Trout gave them the lead again one a solo homerun. However, it just wasn't meant to be. The Angels had two opportunities with the bases loaded and got...

On the way to another excellent season, Carlos Gonzalez hit .222 last August. You may not have noticed because it was hidden by his earlier numbers.
Josh Hamilton hit .204 this April. You definitely noticed.
Both months hurt you, the difference is perception. Hitters slump all the time. It's just much more apparent when that ugly early-season total is staring you in the face...
