The April 16th, 2013 edition of daily news for the Los Angeles Angels including Angels potential suitors for Headley, Arte Moreno paying for his own moves and much more...
The Story: The Angels could be a suitor for Chase Headley if/when he becomes available via trade.
The Monkey Says: I seriously doubt it, but I understand why people will bring it up. Frankly, the Angels just don't have the prospect package that the Padres would want in a Headley deal. I also don't think the Halos are that unhappy with Callaspo, who they just signed to a two-year deal, as a placeholder until Kaleb Cowart is ready.
The Story: Arte Moreno needs to look at his own moves if he is angry about the Angels' slow start.
The Monkey Says: Simers likes to propagate the "Angry Arte" persona, but this is the first time I have seen anyone else echo that sentiment. I'm still not sure his anger really manifests itself in actual moves, with the exception of the Wells trade...

Ryan Madson is feeling pretty close to normal. After suffering through an entire season missed in 2012 thanks to Tommy John surgery, Madson expected to be ready for Opening Day this year. Unfortunately, he developed tightness in his elbow and was shut down. Now, he is nearing his return. Finally.
Madson said today was the "closest I've felt to normal."...
Although we have been seeing some signs of life, the pulse still isn’t strong in the Angels. OK, the injuries haven’t been as disastrous as they could have been, with Luis Jimenez covering third base more than adequately, and although we miss Erick Aybar, Harris and Romine haven’t embarrassed themselves at shortstop. The pitching has been predictably unpredictable, but Weaver...

ANAHEIM -- First, Darin Erstad used his head. Then, he used
After nearly taking down the outfield fence with his head in
an attempt to make a catch in second inning, Erstad lined a two-run double in

Chase Headley is expected back any day now. The Gold Glove winning third baseman for the San Diego Padres suffered a fractured thumb during spring training when he jammed it on the second base bag. He has been rehabbing ever since, but Headley appears ready to join his team and come off the 15-day DL.
Austin Laymance of MLB.com says the Padres have even left an open locker...
The Angels recently shifted Garrett Richards from a middle relief role to starting role, promoted Luis Jimenez from AAA to the Major League squad, promoted Michael Roth from AA and put him into a long relief scenario in which he’ll piggy-back on Richards’ starts and promoted the recently acquired Dane De La Rosa to the bullpen from AAA. Undoubtedly while some news sources believe...

Despite Tony La Russa insisting he would never manage again after retiring from the St. Louis Cardinals following the 2011 season, rumors persist about his potential return to the dugout.
The last-place Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim would be the California resident’s destination – if the high-priced roster continues to lose games, says Charley Walters of the St. Paul Pioneer...

It couldn't possibly get worse, right? No. Actually, it seems like it can. After Joe Blanton stunk up the joint last night serving up taters to the whole ballpark out in frigid Minnesota, Jason Vargas out-stunk him. One could try to rationalize the sudden loss of Vargas' command of his pitches, chocking it up the cold air, or sympathy for Blanton, or a Space Jam-esque alien...
MLB News: The San Diego Padres made a pair of moves on Wednesday, activating third baseman Chase Headley from the 15-day disabled list while placing outfielder Cameron Maybin on it.
Fantasy Ramifications: Headley, who always had a bandwagon but never the horse, came into his own in 2012 going for 31 home runs and a .286 batting average. He is considered a very solid fantasy third...
