It must be fun to be a Los Angeles Angels fan right now. You have all-world first baseman Albert Pujols, just acquired Zack Greinke for the stretch run, and have the best pitcher and player currently in baseball on your favorite team in the form of Jered Weaver and Mike Trout.Jered Weaver is now 15-1 on the season. That's a pretty damn good winning percentage. His awesomeness...
Los Angeles Angels first baseman Albert Pujols was pretty angry Saturday night after a Chicago White Sox fan in the second row of the stands prevented him from catching a foul ball.
It happened in the first inning on a foul popup by White Sox batter A.J. Pierzynski. Pujols reached into the front row of the stands to catch the ball and would have caught it, had it not been...
Welcome to this week’s edition of Who’s Hot, Who’s Not. I’ll be discussing a familiar face with a still-unfamiliar uniform, a revitalized ace and a former ace who needs an attitude adjustment.
Hottest of the Hot: Albert Pujols, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim of the United States of North America.
Now THIS is more what the Angels had in mind when they lured the longtime Cardinal...
Angels rookie Mike Trout strikes again with HR-robbing catch
Mike Trout turns 21 years young today.
Aaron Gleeman of HardballTalk makes a point to say that Trout is “the American League’s best player”, and he’s wrong.
I fall more in like with the thinking of my dear friend M.J. Lloyd, who has reminded me via text all season long that Trout is baseball’s top player.
Look at this snippet from the HBT link, and then try and disagree...
There was an unsatisfying four-game split in Texas and a series loss in Chicago, but the Angels can still salvage something useful before they return home later this week.
If they can win two of three games in Oakland beginning Monday night, there will be a measure of triumph at the end of an exhausting road trip.
Right now, there's nothing worthy of praise. Everything good...

In a series with heavy playoff implications, the Oakland A's will take on the Los Angeles Angels for three games this week at the Coliseum. The A's will have to tangle with the Angels three top starters, as well as the red-hot bats of Albert Pujols and Mike Trout.
The Angels knew it was a long shot, and it was. Monday they learned that their protest of Friday's game against the Chicago White Sox was denied by Major League Baseball.

As you are certainly aware, Mike Trout was 20 years old for a while, and as you are probably aware he is 21 as of today. Sweet goodness. I mean, I don't even.
Then there's a guy named Randal Grichuk. Trout was drafted 25th in the 2009 draft. Grichuk was drafted 24th. This has made Grichuk pretty famous for what somebody else has done. It has led to tweets like this...
The Oakland Athletics finally met their match on the mound.
Jered Weaver pitched a four-hitter for his major-league leading 15th victory, outlasting Jarrod Weaver to lead the Angels past the A's 4-0 on Monday night to overtake Oakland for the final spot in the crowded AL wild card standings.
''Jered did his job on the other side,'' Parker said, ''and...
