Found August 22, 2013 on Angelswin:
By David Saltzer, AngelsWin.com Senior Writer What makes a place a home rather than a destination? On the internet, that’s a tricky question to answer when it comes to the internet. We may all visit some websites on a regular basis to get information or to buy products. And, we may interact with people on the internet to get help with a technical issue or for customer service. But even if we have frequent and regular interaction like that, it’s not enough to call a website like Amazon a “home.” AngelsWin.com, though, is different. We are a home for Angels fans. A big reason for that is our Fanfests where we interact in person with the people we know behind the keyboard. We care about each other. We help each other. We may not always agree about things, but we all are passionate about the Angels. Through good years and tough years, we are all connected through our love on the team. Starting with our 2012 Summer Fanfest, AngelsWin.com wanted to be more than just an internet h...

Joe Blanton making run at embarrassing pitching triple crown

Joe Blanton has been the worst pitcher in baseball this season, and that’s not an exaggeration. Whether he’s been starting or relieving for the Los Angeles Angels, his results have been equally awful. In fact, he’s been so bad that he could win the pitching triple crown … in all the wrong categories. Blanton currently […]

Albert Pujols shrugs off season-ending injury, can’t want for next year

Rumors of Los Angeles Angels 1B/DH Albert Pujols demise have been greatly exaggerated.  At least according to Albert Pujols.  Despite what is unquestionably his worst season in the majors (fewest AB, fewest HR, lowest avg, it goes on), he can’t wait for next season to prove doubters wrong. According to Enrique Rojas of ESPNDeportes.com, Albert feels like there is optimism to...

Angels' Trout sitting out 2nd game

Mike Trout was out of the Los Angeles Angels' starting lineup for the second straight game Tuesday night to rest his tight right hamstring. Although the All-Star outfielder was available to hit, he was expected to miss consecutive games for the first time in the last two seasons when the Angels host Cleveland. Trout had sat out just one game in his outstanding season before...

Finding bright spots amid Angels' struggles

ANAHEIM, Calif. Silver linings are tough to find these days. The Angels keep looking for them, but all they see are mounting losses. They don't have Mike Trout, who sat for a third consecutive game because of a right hamstring injury. They don't have Albert Pujols, whose foot injury has knocked him out for the rest of the season. Second baseman Howie Kendrick still isn...

Angels' Mike Trout still not playing, hamstring injury lingering

While it's a good thing the Los Angeles Angels are not sending Mike Trout out to play with a lingering hamstring strain, it's concerning that the injury has not improved all that much.  Many times teams will let star player try to work throughout he injury with a few days off, but it seems hamstring injuries tend to need a trip to the DL.  Especially this season. According...

Angels' Hank Conger suffers significant bruise, but no fracture

Hank Conger was lucky not to suffer a fractured hand after a fouled off bunt attempt.  The Los Angeles Angels' 25-year old catcher was seen with his hand heavily wrapped after last night's game, but fortunately, the diagnosis is just a bruise. Hank Conger had his right hand heavily wrapped after foul bunt, but said he's fine. No broken bones. Just bruising. #Angels...

How Much Would You Pay for One Year of Mike Trout?

Recently, I was asked what I think turns out to be a pretty interesting thought experiment: if Mike Trout was released by the Angels and became a free agent, but decided he did not want to sign long term with any other team and simply preferred to go year to year instead, where would the […]

Joe Blanton has been even worse than you think

In case it somehow escaped your attention, Joe Blanton is not very good at baseball. One could even go so far as to say that he is bad it. And when I say one could say that, I mean that just about everyone who has seen him pitch this season have said that or something much worse and much more expletive-laden. It is all very funny to lambaste Blanton for being terrible. Perhaps...

Lucie Logistics: Kyle Johnson, Who We Received For Cowgill, Has A 14 Game Hitting Streak

Worth noting: As the end of the season approaches, the Mets have already started looking ahead to the 2014 campaign. The most important part of that checklist includes shelving pitchers who have reached their innings limits. Matthew Bowman, who made the transition from reliever to starter this year, was the first player shut down under those guidelines. The 22-year-old amassed 127...
