Monkey with a Halo:
The July 19th, 2013 edition of daily news for the Los Angeles Angels including Bourjos' wrist still not healed, top 5 Angels deadline trades and much more...
The Story: The fracture in the wrist of Peter Bourjos still hasn't fully healed.
The Monkey Says: He was supposed to be ready to go in the next week, but apparently not. Given his history of wrist issues, the Angels will undoubtedly be cautious with him. It now seems like a longshot that he will be back before the end of the month.
The Story: The top 5 in-season Angel trades of all-time.
The Monkey Says: it is an interesting list given the restriction of it being an in-season trade. I don't really get the high ranking of the Teixeira trade though. I know the legend of that trade resulting in the Angels getting Trout, which is really only a half-truth because they would've used their one pick on Trout instead of back-to-back picks on Trout and Grichuk, but that element is not even introduced here. I really just don't get how renting Teixeira for a few months and not even winning the pennant counts for much.
The Story: Jason Vargas and Sean Burnett are both long-tossing and could throw off a mound in a week.
The Monkey Says: That likely means both will be back just after the deadline, assuming their are no setbacks, which is far from a guarantee with Burnett.
The Story: Ryan Madson is in Arizona throwing bullpen sessions until he is ready for game action.
The Monkey Says: There is no timeline for when that will be, but it is reaching a point where getting Madson back from the DL will do the Angels no good and only end up costing them money given that is contract is laden with several $500,000 bonuses triggered by the number of days he spends on the active roster.
The Story: Tommy Hanson is expected to rejoin the Angels on Tuesday assuming he feels good after his rehab start last night.
The Monkey Says: I'm writing this before that game, so if his elbow exploded during that rehab start, that headline is going to look pretty stupid.
The Story: J.B. Shuck is the Angels nominee for the Heart and Hustle Award.
The Monkey Says: Congratulations for to J.B. for being the token undersized, scrappy white guy on the roster this year.

X-rays taken earlier this week showed that the broken bone just below Peter Bourjos' right wrist hasnt fully healed, a minor setback that will delay the return of the Angels center fielder by another week or two.
Bourjos, hurt when he was hit by a pitch in Houston on June 29, hoped to resume full baseball activities within two or three weeks of the injury and return by the end...
The Los Angeles Angels entered the first-half break as one
of the most-injured teams in the majors. They are hoping to lose that ominous
title over the second half of the season. While pitchers Sean Burnett and Jason
Vargas are progressing through their rehab programs, center fielder Peter
Bourjos’ broken right wrist still hasn’t healed completely, according to Mike
ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Like most other all-stars and baseball fans alike, Angels outfielder Mike Trout's fondest memory of this year's Major League All-Star Game was Yankees closer Mariano Rivera pitching the eighth inning for the American League.
But the star outfielder also had some time to help out one of his Angels teammates.
Trout was given a pink glove by reliever Jerome...

44 wins, 49 losses; 93 games down, 69 games to go. The situation that is presented before the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim starting the "second half" of the season is the exact opposite of favorable. On April first of this year, the Angels began what looked to be one of their most promising seasons in a while. After...

If the Angels are going to make a run in the second half, their stars need to lead the way.
And on Friday night, in a 4-1 victory over the American League West-leading Athletics at Angel Stadium, Jered Weaver, Mike Trout, Albert Pujols and Josh Hamilton did exactly that.
Trout, Pujols and Hamilton combined for five hits, two home runs and three RBIs, Weaver threw 6 2/3 scoreless...
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Albert Pujols, Erick Aybar and Mike Trout each homered, Jered Weaver extended his scoreless-innings streak against Oakland to 24 2-3, and the Los Angeles Angels came out of the All-Star break with a 4-1 victory over the Athletics on Friday night.
Weaver (4-5) allowed four hits in 6 2-3 innings while striking out a season-high eight and walking four. The previous...
There's an old saying, the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. For the Angels, any hope of contention for the AL West title or a wild card begins with nights like tongiht. The A's are one of the best teams in baseball (I know I threw up a little just typing that phrase) and the schedule gods have given the Angels a shot by orchestrating several series between...
Keith Allison During the All Star break, most owners out there tend to follow the same routine. Get up and look at your roster, realize that you don't need to make any changes for the day, and then sit and stare at your roster wondering what might have been...and wondering what is yet to come. I'm going to tell you what to expect from some big name players for the second...
The All-Star break is a long standing tradition, and in the game of baseball tradition is something held very close to the game. The history and tradition behind baseball is unlike any other sport, which is why the MLB All-Star festivities stand above all other sports. The NBA All-Star tradition is one that rivals the MLB with the always entertaining Slam Dunk Contest, while the...
It couldn’t have been a more perfect setting. Blue skies, high 70′s, a nice sea breeze, Southern California baseball is back, and we sure missed it while it was gone.
The first place Oakland Athletics came in to a sold out Angel Stadium today looking to gain some extra ground on the possibly deteriorating Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim but the boys in red had different plans...
On Friday night, the first-place Oakland A’s (56-39) will ride into Anaheim to take on the Angels (44-49) in a three-game weekend set that kicks off the so-called “second half” of the 2013 season.
The A’s, if you may recall, ended their pre-ASG segment of the season with two very solid games against the Boston Red Sox, including last Sunday’s extra-innings walk-off provided...

Though the Los Angeles Angels have the high-priced, marquee talent, the low-budget Oakland Athletics are the team to catch in the AL West.
Looking to continue their success in Anaheim, the visiting A's hope to end their recent struggles against Jered Weaver and hand the underachieving Angels a fourth consecutive defeat Friday night.
For the first time since 1990 - the last...
