Monkey with a Halo:
So much for that whole "Weaver's no-hitter igniting the team" thing. The good vibes and the winning streak just went out the window as quickly as the came in last night thanks to the Halos running into the buzzsaw that was Brandon Morrow.
Blue Jays 5, Angels 0
So, yeah, I'm going to go ahead an assume that this momentum-stopping shutout at the hands of Morrow was just the Angels running into the wrong pitcher on the wrong night. That may not be the actual factual truth, but I am going to choose to believe it. I'm tired of pulling my hair out over this team being so wildly overaggressive at the plate. I mean, that is exactly what their problem is and they have done almost nothing to address it, but it is just so exhausting beating on that dead horse. Therefore, I simply elect to give all credit to Morrow and assign no blame to the Angel hitters.
Ignorance is bliss.
I warned you, didn't I? That nine-run outburst brought about another...

When you think of all-time great shortstops, Omar Vizquel may get overlooked, but for those who know baseball, Vizguel is most likely top five on the list. Now at 45 and currently playing with the Toronto Blue Jays, Vizquel looks to be calling it a career after the current season. While he is not sure, he is definitely
The Los Angeles Angels will try to enter the Guinness Book of World Records for the largest gathering of people wearing cowboy hats with a fan promotion scheduled for June 2.

Call it cliche if you want. You could even call it trite or hackneyed if you really wanted to be petty about it. But, yes, Jered Weaver might very well have saved the Angels' season with his no-hitter last night.
I'm was almost hesitant to write that myself because it seems like such an over-reaching statement, but the more I think about it, the more I just can't...

A man in a new uniform
How quickly things change. How quickly fans turn. Just last October, Albert Pujols was celebrating his second World Series Championship, and as the best player, on the world’s best team, Pujols sat on top of the baseball world. Unfortunately for Los Angeles Angels fans, the championship trophy Pujols held was while he was in a St. Louis Cardinals’ uniform...
Jered Weaver signed a contract extension with the Los Angeles Angels last season for just these kinds of moments. A Southern California native, Weaver threw his first career no-hitter Wednesday night in front of friends and family -- literally. His parents and his wife of just about six months were all in the stands, as they usually are for Weaver's home starts. They joined...
For The Associated Press The Los Angeles Angels' commitment to Jered Weaver is paying off.
Signed to a five-year, $85 million contract extension last August, the 29-year-old left-hander pitched his first no-hitter Wednesday night, dominating lowly Minnesota in a 9-0 cakewalk. All the Twins could muster against the two-time All-Star was one walk - and one other baserunner when...
The Los Angeles Dodgers have signed Bobby Abreu one week after the Angels cut the slumping outfielder.
Abreu hit .208 in 24 at-bats before the last-place Angels let him go last Friday. He didn't have to go very far to find another job, opting for a reserve role with the NL West-leading Dodgers.
The 38-year-old Abreu is in the last season of a $27 million, three-year contract...
Dave Weaver was in his usual seat, 20 rows behind home plate, drinking a beer and shouting instructions to his son in the quiet lulls between pitches. His wife, Gail, was alongside him, calmly enjoying a little night baseball.
It really could have been any night in three lives filled with similar evenings at ballparks all across Southern California.
Instead, Jered Weaver made an...
