Today is the one time of the year that everyone, no matter how well-off or unfortunate, gives thanks to what they have in their lives. Do you hear that Angel fans? This is the one time of the year that you all HAVE to thankful with what the Angels have given to you without any undue whining or griping. It's the season for thanks, the season for positive reflection, so we're going to take a stroll positivity alley and take a look at all the things we have to be thankful for regarding our beloved Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.
Let Us Be Thankful for
- Ernesto Frieri. No matter how bad the bullpen looks we can always be thankful we have at least one serious threat in the bullpen, someone we can rely on the majority of the time to get the job done. Since that is a luxury that Angel fans find few and far between we must be thankful for having a rock in our bullpen we can use as a blueprint to build a successful bullpen. Just because he had a few bad appearances ne...

Williams and DiMaggio, Mays and Mantle, Bonds
and Griffey…baseball has a history of paired superstars, players of similar
talent that are associated with each other for much of their careers. Mike
Trout and Bryce Harper, AL and NL Rookies of the Year of 2012, will almost
certainly be paired in name for the rest of their careers...

Scott Kazmir’s comeback season isn’t done just yet.
Kazmir recently made his debut in the Puerto Rican Winter League with the Gigantes de Carlina. In four innings, he surrendered two runs on four hits, while walking one and striking out six.
He was all but written off once the Los Angles Angels released him at the beginning of the 2011 season. Months after being let...
Generally speaking, at least in terms of baseball free agency, the top free agent will set the market for the rest of the free agents as soon as he signs his big contract during the start of the offseason. Not to take away from the rest, but it is the best player who will sign a large contract, setting the parameters for the others to fall in line, almost sort of like a domino effect...
Right near the top of Jerry Dipoto's off-season shopping list has to be bullpen help. It is probably listed right underneath rotation help and maybe milk and eggs. Regardless, getting some better, more reliable relievers is a major priority for the Halos after their 2012 season was largely torpedoed by the Bullpen of Perpetual Sorrow.
This glaring need has become somewhat...
With many people in the post-thanksgiving food coma, the spirit of gratitude may have taken a momentary back seat today to the regrets and lessons of overindulgence. Still, it would be somewhat uncouth to not take stock of our blessings. Sure, it seems that most of the news surrounding the Angels lately has been either mediocre or downright sad, but there are still many things to...

Just a couple years ago, it was Jason Heyward and Giancarlo Stanton that were tearing up baseball, looking like an unprecedented pair of rookie talents ready to continue on into the stratosphere together. Now, just two years later, we’ve got Mike Trout and Bryce Harper one-upping them. That’s just how it goes. With an injury (and a team deflation) taking some of the wind out...
