The Run Down
Of the Angels' top four prospects a year ago, zero remain. Mike Trout and Garret Richards are now with the big club, and Jean Segura and Johnny Hellweg were traded to Milwaukee. This system is in poor shape heading into the 2013 season -- Kaleb Cowart represents the only high-impact talent, and the farm is not deep with upside guys. Frankly, there's very little here to get excited about in terms of fantasy baseball, but I suppose what LA produced last year from its system will quench our fantasy thirsts for another year or two. Barring ineptitude from the third base slot or injury to a regular, I don't see much opportunity for prospect turnover in 2013.The post 2013 Minor League Preview: Los Angeles Angels appeared first on Fantasy Baseball Blog at Razzball.com.

It seems as if the ripple-effect made by the Kendrys Morales trade has stretched farther into the roster than many might think. A lot of Angel fans were unhappy, or I could say outright pissed, that Kendrys was traded for some third-rate inning eating starter from the lowly Mariners. I mean, not only did the Angels trade away one of their biggest power bats for a mid-tier starter...
Jason Vargas won 14 games last year for a Mariners club that finished 27th in runs scored. People say wins are bogus. For the most part that’s true. But if you toss over 200 innings with an ERA under 4.00, chances are you’re going to win a good amount of games no matter what offense is backing you. (That is, unless that offense is the historically pathetic Seattle Mariners from...

2012 is drawing to a close. For the Angels, it was a bittersweet season as they welcomed superstars Mike Trout and Albert Pujols to the team, but also had to stomach the brutal disappointment of missing the playoffs. But here at MWAH, it was all good as we had our best year ever and even capped it off with our best month ever in December. How did it all happen? Because of...
