And it got even better on Thursday afternoon. Morales, out since fracturing his lower left leg in a home late celebration of a May 29, 2010 walk-off grand slam against Seattle, faced big-league pitching...

Angels' C.J. Wilson is heating up early

C. J. Wilson interviews with AngelsWin.com

By David Saltzer, AngelsWin.com Senior Writer On December 10, 2011, Angels fans got their first chance to meet the newest member of their starting rotation: C. J. Wilson.

Six Angels that could be traded before Opening Day

Outside of the fifth starter spot, the Angels Opening Day roster is set.  This is the kind of thing that happens after you spend half of a gajillion dollars in the off-season to add free agents and lock up other players to extensions.  It makes for great roster certainty, but not so much for spring training position battle intrigue.  Sigh. But wait!  There is always the possibility...

Larry Bowa Interviews with AngelsWin.com

Interview Conducted by Brian Waller, AngelsWin.com Feature WriterIntensity is something you can’t teach. It’s not a pitch you can practice in the bullpen; it’s not a flaw in your swing you can fix in the batting cages. It’s an intangible that doesn’t show in stat lines on the back of baseball cards. It’s a personality trait that is found in winners and leaders throughout...

MLB 2012 Preview: The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

It has been 10 years since the (then) Anaheim Angles won the World Series on the backs of rookies John Lackey and Francisco Rodriguez, and older folks like Bengie Molina and Garret Anderson (not to mention the Rally Monkey). Post 2002, the Angles went on a tear, winning the AL West five times between 2004 and 2009. Since then, though, the Texas Rangers have taken over ownership...
