By Joe Haakenson, AngelsWin.com Contributor -  MAY 3, 2002 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 struck out Carlos Delgado and got Raul Mondesi to ground out to second base and lift the Angels to their eighth consecutive win, 6-4, before 13,183 at SkyDome. ''You don't ideally write it up that way,'' Percival said. ''Delgado and Mondesi with the bases loaded is not a situation you're looking forward to.'' But like last week when Percival struck out both Mondesi and Delgado to finish off a 4-0 win in Anaheim, the end result was all that mattered. The winning streak is the fourth longest in club history and put the club back at .500 (14-14) for the first time...

An Open Letter to Arte Moreno on the Issue of Buttercup

By Jessica Grey, AngelsWin.com Staff Writer -  Dear Arte, 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...

The Angels bullpen is a disaster

There is a lot wrong with the LA Angels. Instead of being the World Series contender many thought they would be, the Halos have struggled to a 10-17 record and are already on the verge of having to declare 2013 a lost season. The problem that gets the most attention is Josh Hamilton. While he is having a miserable season, he attracts the attention simply based on brand name recognition...

The Los Angeles Angels don't seem to be having any more luck than the Dodgers when it comes to pitcher health this season.

Searching for talent at the Angels' Triple-A affiliate

This past weekend, I decided to attend a couple AAA games for the Angels, mostly due to the convenience of only having to travel two hours to see them play in Sacramento, but also to get a better idea as to what they have to offer in terms of pitching and hitting.  I can’t say I was terribly surprised by the results, but they were considerably less optimistic than even I could...

MLB's Best Team on Paper

Are Albert Pujols and the Angels the "best team on paper"? (Credit) Fans are continuously told that what a team has on paper means nothing once it takes the field.

Although that may be true, what is to stop us from having some fun and determining...
