Found July 31, 2013 on Pro Sports Daily:
The Angels are unlikely to part ways with shortstop Erick Aybar an industry source told late Tuesday night but second baseman Howie Kendrick remains in play. The Angels and Cardinals engaged in brief talks for Aybar as Jim Bowden of ESPN first reported but it was the Cardinals that approached the Angels first and the talks quickly faded according to a source. The Angels are trying to acquire cost-controlled starting pitching but would prefer not to trade Aybar because a shortstop is much more difficult to replace. Kendrick however can block deals to 12 different teams in 2013 (whereas Aybar’s contract doesn’t have any no-trade protection). Earlier on Tuesday the Angels flipped third baseman Alberto Callaspo to the A’s for Minor League infielder Grant Green. The deal saved about $6 million in salary through 2014 which they can allocate towards starting pitching and gave them an option to replace Kendrick if he’s traded.

A’s Trade Grant Green to Angels for Alberto Callaspo

Breaking trade news: the A’s have acquired infielder Alberto Callaspo from the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim for Grant Green. Word broke minutes ago, and was confirmed even more recently: Source confirms A’s getting Alberto Callaspo from Angels for Grant Green. — Jane Lee (@JaneMLB) July 31, 2013 Green, a U.S.C. alum, went hitless in 15 official at-bats for the A’s in 2013...

Angels' Peter Bourjos 'moving in the right direction', takes BP

Angels' outfielder Peter Bourjos took batting practice yesterday in the batting cage for the first time since he suffered a fractured right wrist on June 29th. Jeff Fletcher of the OC Register spoke with Bourjos after he stepped out of the cages: #Angels Peter Bourjos took BP in the cage for the first time today. Said it felt good. "Moving in the right direction...

Angels' Scioscia ejected at Texas

Los Angeles manager Mike Scioscia has been ejected from the Angels' game at Texas. Scioscia went out to argue a play at first base when slow-footed Geovany Soto was called safe on a close play in the second inning Tuesday night. Crew chief Jerry Layne, who was at first base, heard only a few words from an irate Scioscia before tossing the manager from the game. Layne then stood...

Angels Notes: Vargas, Burnett, and Bourjos continue to rehab

The slim playoff chances of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim may have dropped further with last night's heartbreaking loss in Texas, but the day was not without a degree of positive news on the injury front. As usual, Halos manager Mike Scioscia held his daily pregame press meeting reassuring the general public that the Angels would not be giving up on the season. With trade...

What The Angels Should Have Done…

The trade deadline is behind us, and there was no big news. One thing Angel fans wanted this off season was pitching: that lead to Jerry DiPoto to sign SP Joe Blanton, RP’s Sean Burnett and Ryan Madson. Then DiPoto traded Jordan Walden for Tommy Hanson and sent Kendrys Morales to Seattle for Jason Vargas. Lets see how these pitchers are doing right now: Blanton: 2-13...

Angels Burnett Done For Season

Los Angeles Angels reliever Sean Burnett is done for the season after an MRI showed that he has a torn flexor tendon in his left elbow.  The tear was found by Dr. Keith Meister, the Texas Rangers’ team physician. “He’s definitely not going to pitch this year,” a disconsolate Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. “This is huge.  You look at what Sean could do, and Ryan Madson...

Athletics acquire Alberto Callaspo from Angels

The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim continued dealing a day after trading Scott Downs, and have sent third baseman Alberto Callaspo to the Oakland Athletics in exchange for Grant Green. Callaspo will play second base for Oakland. This trade is more than a rental for Oakland, as Callaspo is signed through next year, when he'll make $4.875 million. The 30-year old only extensively...

Angels stand pat on deadline day, making for an interesting off-season

Well, that was a bust, wasn't it? A day after triggering an Alberto Callaspo trade, the Angels seemed primed to move Howie Kendrick today. NOPE. It turns out that the Angels decided to stand pat after they were unable to get the kind of return on Kendrick, Aybar, Trumbo or anyone else. That kind of sucks. Not because I wanted to see anyone specific get dealt but because...

A's Send Green To Angels For Callaspo

Seeking an upgrade offensively against right-handed pitching, the Oakland A's acquired switch-hitting infielder Alberto Callaspo from the Los Angeles Angels. The price for Callaspo was a steep one, as A's 2009 first-round pick Grant Green was sent back to Anaheim.

Angels Classic Rewind | Dateline: July 27th - 28th, 2002

By Joe Haakenson, Contributor -  JULY 27, 2002 GAME 102 - ANGELS AT MARINERS SEATTLE – It might have been fun while it lasted, but the Angels’ hold on first place in the A.L.

Good Luck Rebuilding

By Jason Sinner, Contributor -  I keep seeing tons of internet chatter from Angels fans about selling off the teams spare parts to make them better......eventually. Yet a bad loss tonight and many are still pissed even with little doubt about the outcome of this season.  On top of that, we traded a 38yo middle relief lefty specialist about to become a FA...

Weaver beats the heat but Frieri implodes, Angels lose to Texas 4-3

Jered Weaver finally figured out a way to pitch well in the Texas heat and it all went to waste. Jered was every bit the ace that Texas had hoped Matt Garza would be for them. Even with the Angels playoff hopes long since stamped out in the dirt, having Weaver outduel Garza would've been a nice bit of consolation, but it just wasn't meant to be. Well, technically speaking...
