By  Joe Haakenson, AngelsWin.com Contributor -  MAY 17, 2002 GAME 39 - ANGELS AT WHITE SOX CHICAGO -- The wind-chill factor at the start of Friday night's game between the Angels and Chicago White Sox was 34 degrees, which seemed to make Chicago-area natives Scott Spiezio, Al Levine and Lou Pote feel right at home. All three played big roles in leading the Angels to an 8-4 victory before 12,736 bundled up fans at Comiskey Park, the Angels eighth consecutive victory and their 17th in 19 games. The Angels have won eight in a row twice this season, the first time in franchise history they've had two winning streaks of at least eight games in the same season. The Angels also became the sixth team in the majors since 1998 to go 17-2 over a 19-game stretch. Seattle and Oakland each did it last season. Spiezio, a native of Joliet, Ill., had two hits, including a two-run homer in the eighth inning that turned a 5-4 game into 7-4. Pote, from Evergreen Park, and Levine...

Enright, Lowe never give the Angels a chance in 9-5 loss to Kansas City

All the Angels want is a chance to turn things around but their thin, decimated roster just isn't affording them one. Take tonight for example. By the third inning the game was essentially over because of how far down the depth chart the Angels have had to go. Barry Enright, who is the ninth starting pitcher the Halos have used this year, once again proved that he has no...

Where's The Beef?

The state of Angels baseball, explained in commercials By Glen McKee, AngelsWin.com columnist -  Wow, it’s been a rough season so far and the light on the horizon is dim at best.  Injuries, bad contracts, uninspired play, and a lack of depth have conspired to give the Angels one of their worst starts ever and now even making the playoffs seems a Herculean task (and not...

Oh Say Can You Sing? : The Night I Sang the National Anthem

By Ellen Bell, AngelsWin.com Staff Writer -  It was my New Year’s resolution. A dare, if you will. Over the years I had listened to many National Anthem singers at the ballpark. One day, I said to myself, “I can do that.” I’m not really sure what drove me to call the Angels Front Office to inquire about an audition in January of 1998. But for whatever the reason...

The 2013 Angels: A New Dark Age or Time of Transition?

By Jonathan Northrop, AngelsWin.com Columnist -  A Brief History of Franchise Ineptitude I’ve never really liked the way the Angels were run. I started following the team around 1980, although I was just a kid and only vaguely followed them, not getting serious about the team until 1987, the year after their ill-fated 1986 campaign. The Angels had been to the playoffs three...

Blowpen Strikes Again; Angels Lose to White Sox 5- 4

  Games like this, I just can’t help but reminisce.  It’s just hitting me how spoiled we were back in the mid -2000s.  Pitchers like Scott Shields and K-Rod really don’t come around too often, and when they do it’s not long enough. Those were days, when the 8th and 9th innings were locked down by veterans, now we count on players you’ve never heard of (before this...
