PLAYERS: Mike Trout
TEAMS: Los Angeles Angels
Ladies and gentlemen, we have a winner. In a sport where turnstile swag sometimes draws more fans than the on-field action does, the Angels may have baseball’s best giveaway of all-time coming up next month. The Halos are preparing to hand out Mike Trout fish hats to fans on June 18 when they host the Mariners, as pointed out by Yahoo! Sports. The hats are trucker style, with an autographed lid, a No. 27 on the side and a fish coming out of the front of it. In other words, it’s awesome. Check out some photos of the lid below.

Sitting Josh Hamilton was dumb

One more note on the Angels - Orioles game. As everyone knows, Josh Hamilton has been awful so far with the Angels after signing this huge contract. He is continuing his trend from last year at swinging at everything and is batting like .208 or something. And so his manager sat him yesterday against the Orioles. That was dumb. Why was it dumb when Hamilton just went zero for...

Los Angeles Angels’ Mike Trout hat giveaway promotion is awesome

The Los Angeles Angels will be giving away trout hats in honor of superstar phenom Mike Trout on June 18 against the Seattle Mariners.

Do You Love Mike Trout Enough to Look Completely Ridiculous?

Thought so. You can snag one of these fancy Trout caps when the Los Angeles Angels face the Seattle Mariners (how fitting) on June 18. Not in the Anaheim area? No problem. Since the less-fancy, first edition foam Trout hats are going for roughly $25 on eBay, the newer models will likely be bartered online in no time.  Besides, they really don't look any more ridiculous...

Angels catcher Hank Conger falls down and goes boom; still beats out infield single (VIDEO)

via MLB.com video You know variations of the line, “He could have fallen down, gotten back up and still beaten it out”?  Well, Angels catcher Hank Conger did just that.  On Sunday, the Orioles were defending the left-handed hitting Conger with a hefty infield shift swung around toward first base.  Manny Machado, the O’s third baseman was playing where the shortstop is normally...

The time is now for Scioscia and the Angels to part

There is a new entry on the extinct species list: the Scioscia apologist. As of today, I am done. Done with sticking up for Mike Scioscia. In the struggles of the last few years there have been few who have defended Scioscia as ardently as I have. But now I must relent and admit that it is now time for the Angels to fire Mike Scioscia. And I mean that literally they need to fire...

Los Angeles Angels Catcher Hank Conger Proves Why You Never Say Die

From Little League up through the professional ranks coaches always tell their players to run it out; to never say die. You never know when fate and luck (good for you or bad for the other team) will intervene and give you that extra second or two needed to make it down the base line. Angels catcher Hank Conger must have listened, because even though he stumbled on this play he...

Boston College Softball Player Makes Over-the-Fence Catch to Rob Home Run (Video)

Move over Mike Trout, Boston College center fielder Maria Pandolfo may have something to teach you about snagging home runs. During the third inning of BC’s Sunday matchup with Georgia Tech, Alysha Rudnik got ahold of one, sending the ball to deep center. Unfortunately for Rudnik, that’s where Pandolfo plays, as the latter came up with a home-run-saving grab so awesome it even...

Los Angeles Angels Not Living Up To The Hype Again

During this offseason, the biggest free agent on the market Josh Hamilton signed with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. The Texas Rangers failed to resign him and he decided to sign with their American League West rival the Angels to the tune of 5 yrs/ $125M. So far Hamilton is batting .207 with only 2 long balls and 9 RBI’s, not quite the stat line the Angeles had anticipated...

Might be time for Scioscia to leave

Watching the Angels this season, I keep thinking, "Why does Mike Scioscia need this?" This is his 14th season in Anaheim. His best teams had an aggressive, distinctive style. This one revolves largely around two free-agent sluggers whose worst years are ahead of them, Albert Pujols and Josh Hamilton. The Angels no longer run. They no longer play crisp defense. They'...

Angels blow early lead, lose to Orioles 8-4

The game started out so promissing. Jerome Williams gave up a run in the top of the first, and the Angels responded by scoring three in the bottom of the first. Even when the Orioles rallied back on a two-run homerun by JJ Hardy, Trout gave them the lead again one a solo homerun. However, it just wasn't meant to be. The Angels had two opportunities with the bases loaded and got...

Conger throws the game away; Angels fall to the Astros, 7-6

  When CJ Wilson unraveled during his trademark one-inning stink fest, one couldn't help but have a sinking feeling about this Angels season. While many fans have already jumped ship, the national news has begun to really converge upon the Halos like sharks around a near-dead whale carcass. The Angels aren't simply bad anymore. They are absolutely, unmitigatedly, no...

Scioscia: No plans to quit despite struggles

ANAHEM, Calif. -- With the Angels tying their worst start in franchise history -- an 11-20 record matching the futility of their 1961 inaugural season -- manager Mike Scioscia is under fire from the media and, of course, some fans. They're already calling for his head; Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com has suggested Scioscia and owner Arte Moreno should workout a contract settlement...

Angels drop series to Orioles with 8-4 loss

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- J.J. Hardy and Manny Machado each hit a two-run homer off Jerome Williams in his first start of the season, leading the Baltimore Orioles to an 8-4 victory over the reeling Los Angeles Angels on Sunday. Jason Hammel (4-1) allowed four runs and nine hits through six innings, helping the Orioles tie the New York Yankees for second place in the AL East. The...

Why the Angels Need to Sweep Houston by: Steve Granado (@SteveGranado)

It’s no mystery that the Angels have been struggling to put together wins so far this season.  A lot of questions surround the clubhouse and the coaching staff, and this Astros series may be the biggest series so far. The Halos are under the microscope. They have only 11 wins this season, and only four of those have come on the road. They haven’t won a series since sweeping...
