By Lily Deerinwater - AngelsWin.com Columnist Earlier this month Sports Illustrated Magazine released it's  annual MLB Players Poll.  They ask as many players as they can a list of questions they'd never answer without a guarantee of anonymity.  This year 227 players participated in the poll, which was taken prior to the start of regular season play. Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim starter C.J. Wilson was voted 'Most Overrated Pitcher'.  To accurately answer the question, one must look at Wilson's record previous to the 2012 season, as well as his current stats.  Wilson became a starter for the Texas Rangers in 2010 and ended the season with a 15-8 record and a 3.35 era,  pitching 204 innings and striking out 170 batters, helping the team to their first World Series ...

Weaver helps Angels shutout M's in return

Game Recap 6/20/12: Power Play - Angels 6 Giants 0

Wooohooooo, I actually happen to be a pretty smart guy. Not only did I predict a Zito beatdown, but I also called for it to get the ball rolling on some strong offensive production for the Angels.

Game Recap 6/18/12: Vanity Start

I know that I've been building up Jerome the last few previews, and coincidentally since I started talking him up he's been having some rather unlucky starts. Unlike his start against the Dodgers, he actually seems to have a decent reason for having a less than stellar start today.Jerome Williams was taken to the hospital after his start, experiencing shortness of breath...
