Monkey with a Halo:
During the recent draft, I happened to be on vacation, and even though I love this game and I LOVE prospects, there isn’t much that could take my focus away from my wife, the Atlantic waves and a cocktail. Still, I’d done some homework before the draft on some players and did a little more digging following the draft as well. We here at MWAH do our best to talk to the right people when dealing with prospects we haven’t scouted for ourselves. Of the ones I have had the opportunity to watch, it’s been in shorter video clips, so I did the best I could. Obviously, we’ll all get a better read on these guys once the season starts and can start watching them on a regular basis. However, for now, here’s what we have on the newly drafted Angels prospects.
*Note – If you don’t see anything on a particular prospect that was drafted, just know that I couldn’t find anything substantial on them and have heard nothing from anyone within the Angels organization about this player either.

The award for the most creative stadium giveaway this season goes to the Los Angeles Angels.On Tuesday, the Angels gave away mesh hats featuring a fish protruding from the center in honor of All-Star center fielder Mike Trout. How awesome is that, folks?A big round of applause goes to the team's marketing department for coming up with the clever idea.The fashionable cap sure...
Josh Hamilton grounded into three double plays and struck out the other two times he came to the plate. Mike Trout did everything he could to will his team's offense into something resembling legitimacy. Instead, he was anchored at first, with Scioscia failing to employ his favorite (until this year) offensive tactic of activating his speedy base runners.
Two season highs were matched tonight for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim in their 11-3 victory over the Seattle Mariners. The final line on the scoreboard in right field had the Angels with 21 hits, and on the left field side, had 11 K’s, nine of those coming from Jason Vargas, a season high for the young talent.
Jason Vargas allowed just four hits and two runs, that could be...
The Los Angeles Angels h ave signed right-handed reliever Mike Ekstrom to a minor league deal and have assigned him to Triple-A Salt Lake.
Ekstrom, who had severely struggled with the Oakland Athletics at the Triple-A level in 2013 provides depth for the organization.

When Howie Kendrick was first called up back in 2006 it wasn't a question of if he would win a batting title, it was a question of how many would he win? It was believed that Kendrick was some kind of hitting savant who was going to hit .330 just by showing up for work. It was an expectation that was so unrealistic that it bordered on criminal, yet we all bought into it.

GAME 66 - ANGELS AT DODGERS
LOS ANGELES – A Tim Salmon home run helped push the Angels to an early lead, but Jarrod Washburn gave up back-to-back home runs in the sixth and the Dodgers rallied for a 5-4 victory before 52,183 at Dodger Stadium.
Salmon’s two-run homer in the fourth inning off Dodgers starter Hideo...
Last Week: 1
Mike Trout - With the week he just had, the Angels should see to it that his entire extended family attends every single one of his games. I imagine giving him a fat contract extension would allow for him to pay for that himself. Sounds like a win-win...
“One thing I’ll always knows, is that you’ll never know what will happen in baseball. Today, I’m wearing a hat with a fish on it.” – Reuben, the usher to the Angel Stadium press box.
Well, it seemed like that quote was true, as tonight, four solo home runs, and extra inning heroics were the final offensive factor in tonight’s 3-2 victory for the Seattle Mariners, over...
How good was Tim Tebow at baseball as a high school player? Well, good enough to nearly be drafted by the Los Angeles Angels.
Don't take the title too literal folks. No, the man didn't have a near death experience and almost become an angel. It was something totally different. Back in the high school days he was nearly drafted by the Angels--Los Angeles Angles (or Anaheim back in his day I believe).
Like many kids in high school, Tebow was a multi-sport athlete and played baseball in the...
Over the years the Angels have done well by themselves by beating up on the drecks of the AL West. If they are going to emerge from their season long slumber, they'd be wise to start doing that very thing once more. Granted, it didn't work out so well against the Astros, but when all else fails, there are the Seattle Mariners.
For a minute there it looked like the Halos...
Mariano Rivera struck out Albert Pujols with the bases loaded to
end the Angels' five-run rally in the ninth inning, and the New
York Yankees snapped their five-game losing streak with a wild 6-5
victory over Los Angeles on Sunday.
Excuse me, but I need to soak my head in a bucket of ice water.We held on - fingers to chalkboard - to beat the Los Angeles, California, Angels of Anaheim, basically because they ran out of young players in the ninth inning, and had to send up old Albert Pujols, who is practically as ancient as Mariano.I worry when balls keep dunking in against Mo. That's what happened. Nobody...
