By Joe Haakenson, AngelsWin.com Contributor - APRIL 23, 2002 GAME 20 - ANGELS AT MARINERS SEATTLE -- Angels manager Mike Scioscia says he believes the first 20 games his team has played are the exception, not the rule. The track records of his players, he says, reflect different numbers than the ones they have put up so far this season. But after Tuesday's 1-0 loss to the Seattle Mariners before 32,127 at Safeco Field, the only numbers that count are in the win-loss column, where the Angels are 6-14. It is the worst start through 20 games in franchise history. After a 3-2 start, the Angels have lost 12 of 15, including all six to the Mariners. The Mariners now lead the Angels by 10 1/2 games in the American League West and have beaten them in 21 of their past 25 meetings going back to last season. ''I played on a team in '95 that was phenomenal all year long,'' Angels closer Troy Percival said. ''Then all of a sudden, we couldn't win. The sam...

Albert Pujols Says His Foot Is ‘Hurting Real Bad’

  So there does appear to be a ***** in King Albert’s armor, afterall. Albert Pujols is nursing a nasty case of plantar fasciitis as his struggling Angels team tries to stay afloat in the early part of the season. Pujols revealed to Los Angeles Times reporter Bill Shaikin “I’m dying,” and then he added “I’m hurting real bad.” The 33-year-old first baseman is slated...

Inside the epic struggles of Josh Hamilton

Another season, another big money Angel free agent slugger struggling in April. As we all know far too well by now, Josh Hamilton has been flat out terrible for the Halos.

The easy answer is that his plate discipline and...

Kendrick walks off but Trout saves the day

ANAHEIM, Calif. It had dj vu written all over it. On the heels of blowing a three-run lead in the series opener against the Texas Rangers the night before, the club was in danger of blowing a four-run lead on Tuesday night. With two outs in the top of the ninth inning and the game tied 4-4, Adrian Beltre ripped a shot to left field that sliced toward the foul line and would have...

Jimenez, Callaspo and the coming philosophical war

There is a philosophical war coming amongst the Angels fan base and maybe amongst Angel management too. In the next few weeks, Alberto Callaspo will come off of the disabled list only to find himself pitted against his fill-in rookie Luis Jimenez. It isn't a position battle that anyone anticipated happening, but boy is it going to spark a debate. Pretty much nobody like Alberto...

Yamma hamma: Umpire John Hirschbeck drilled in the crotch by baseball (GIF)

Bats Go Silent; Angels Shutout by Mariners 6- 0

  Maurer came into tonight’s game with a 7.45 ERA.  Apparently, that was good enough because he was able to shutout the Angels through 6 1/3 innings.  But, that had more to do with the Angels’ bats, than Maurer’s pitching (I refuse to give him any credit).  The Angels just couldn’t find any momentum.  It was just one of those games.  No player reached third base...
