The March 6th, 2013 edition of daily news for the Los Angeles Angels including Pujols makes a surprise appearance in the lineup, how Trout provides value on the bases and much more... The Story: Albert Pujols made a surprise return to the Angels lineup yesterday. The Monkey Says: This came out of left field, but it can only be a good thing. Albert went 0-for-3 and pretty much just jogged whenever he had to run, but at least he is in the lineup getting some ABs. The Story: A detailed look at how Mike Trout provides more value on the bases than Miguel Cabrera. The Monkey Says: Relax, this isn't another rehashing of the MVP debate, but rather a way of framing how exactly a great baserunner provides more value than a poor baserunner. Read it and maybe you just might learn something. The Story: The Angels debut at #2 in MLB.com's power rankings. The Monkey Says: Hooray! More high expectations!!! The Story: Andrew Romine explains why he gave up switch-hitting last season. The Monkey Says: I guess that makes sense. If you can't hit from either side you might as well just focus on not being able to hit from just one side instead. The Story: The secret life of the American ball player. The Monkey Says: For anyone that wants to relive Bryan Harvey's days in a slow-pitch softball league or just to marvel at his mustache. The Story: Get to know the company that prints all the graphics that make the Big A look so nice. The Monkey Says: Really? You expect me to add something to this? This is a baseball blog. What the hell do I know about graphic design and printing? Your going to have to Google that crap if that's what you want to read about. [follow]
