Los Angeles Angels
“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 the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.
In the top of the second inning, Joe Blanton looked like the Blanton we’ve seen all season, giving up a solo shot to Raul Ibanez who pulled one over the right field wall, and was then followed on the next pitch by Justin Smoak who wanted some of that action too, almost replicating Ibanez’s home run.
The Angels answered back with a solo shot on the first pitch of the bottom of the second, as Mark Trumbo sent one back to Seattle… uhh, I mean into the rocks at Angel Stadium, in center field.
There was little offensive action after that point as the Mariners could only muster up three hit...

Josh Hamilton has seen his star go from red hot on the Rangers to ice cold on the Angels, and he’s just in year one of a five year deal.
Hamilton’s struggles at the plate have reached historic lows and there’s no signs indicating a turnaround in sight. Hamilton has 4 more years left on a 5 year $125 million contract he signed in the off season with the Angels.

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...
We’ll continue our look at the ten fantasy baseball trade hounds you may or may not want to find yourself in negotiations with this season. Every league has that dude that sends you a low-ball offer for Mike Trout, or maybe worse the guy who gives Mike Trout away for next to nothing because he just got back from his two year cruise in Aruba. We've all interacted with one at...
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.
C.J. Wilson pitched two-hit ball for seven innings, Mike Trout scored the only run on a wild pitch by Joe Saunders and the Los Angeles Angels edged the Seattle Mariners 1-0 Wednesday night.
Wilson (6-5) struck out three, walked two and allowed only two runners as far as second base en route to his fifth straight victory over the Mariners.

GAME 68 - ANGELS AT CARDINALS
ST. LOUIS -- The Angels starting pitchers are a tight group. Beginning in spring training, they went to dinner together, talked pitching together and simply spent a lot of time together.
And in the last week or so, they've pitched poorly together.
Wednesday it was Aaron Sele...
Faith is a funny thing. For some it defines who they are as a person. It serves as the guiding principle of their entire life. For others, it is a crutch, a convenient excuse, a self-defense mechanism. In a lot of cases, it is both of those things for one person and there is no better example of that than Josh Hamilton.
We all know that Josh Hamilton is a man of great faith....
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.
Last night in Anaheim, Josh Hamilton had a really bad game. In five trips to the plate, he hit into three double plays, and in the two at-bats where he didn’t make two outs, he struck out, including a ninth inning strikeout with the winning run in scoring position. For the day, he finished with a -.48 WPA, so while he didn’t single handedly cost them the game, he was the primary...
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...
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...
