Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim second baseman, Howie Kendrick, is on pace to have the best season of his eight year career. Now, anyone would be happy with the season Kendrick is having when you look at his stats, which we will save for later in the article.
A follower of mine on Twitter today noted that they believed Kendrick should be a starter for the upcoming All-Star game. The follower responded to my tweet about Kendrick being second in batting average in the American League, and fourth in Major League Baseball. Here is the response:
“Yes, and if the All-Star selections weren’t a popularity contest… he should be starting 2B.”
Now, although the follower may have some biased as an Angels fan (noted in their Profile Info), it sparked my curiosity as to if Kendrick truly did have starting All-Star numbers.
Here is what I was able to conclude;
Without looking at the vote count leaders that Major League Baseball seems to love putting out for all of us to see, with no All-Star surpris...

The pinstripes need to check their bats for holes. The New York Yankees, for a better lack of a term, are absolutely awful right now. Many in the sports world are happy about this due to their hatred for the “Yanks” but it’s becoming a serious issue for New York, and they fell for the fifth day in a row, this time at the hands of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, by a final...
ANAHEIM, Calif. -- The Angels don't seem to be in a rush, even though June is halfway over and first place seems an ocean away. But every day they get closer to where they want to be.
It's a process, manager Mike Scioscia likes to say. Baby steps. One game at a time.
"We're not going to wake up tomorrow and be in first place, Scioscia said late Friday night. "...
ANAHEIM, Calif. If youve been wondering all season what general manager Jerry Dipoto was envisioning when he put together the 2013 edition of the Los Angeles Angels, you got aglimpse Saturday at what was supposed to look like, but hasnt yet.
The Angels beat the New York Yankees 6-2 to hand the Bombers their fifth straight loss, but it wasnt the W that was most impressive for...

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...

Hey, I remember this team. The decent starting pitchng. The shut down bullpen. The timely hitting and agressive baserunnig. The occasionally boneheaded play that ends up meaning nothing in the end. It's as if someone went down to the clubhouse and reminded Mik Scioscia what his teams used to excel at. Over the past two games the Angels have been the team on the offensive. Granted...
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...
Coming off another series loss (this time to the Orioles), the Angels find themselves still 10 games under .500 (28-38). The Yankees (37-29) come to Anaheim who find themselves in third place in the AL East and on a three game losing skid courtesy of the Oakland Athletics.
The Angels desperately need wins – but so do the Yankees. The pitching matchups are as follows:
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...
