Washing Off the Stink of Mike Trout

You can’t swing a laptop by its power cable without hitting some article about how great Mike Trout has been this season, and how such a performance from a rookie is so extremely rare. Since his call-up in late April and his subsequent tear through the American League, Trout has been a fantastic story. I get interested about a lot of things during the baseball season, but very...

5 ways the Angels seem like they are out of it, but they really aren't

Let's face it, the Angels have been shrouded by negativity for much of the last month.  Not even C.J. Wilson's famed Positive Mental Attitude has been able to fend it off (it also hasn't helped him #throwstrikes either).  I could sit here and offer some insight on the struggling rotation or the lousy bullpen or the tenuous job security of every member of the coaching...
