An Ode To Michael Nelson Trout
Oh, Mike. What fun we had in...what, three weeks? You were my #1 guy. My shining star on this list. The anti-Vernon Wells. And now, here you stand. A man of 20, four months away from being able to drink legally in the United States of America, and you get brought up to take your rightful place at the Major League level. Now, don't worry that the team is 7-15, hasn't had a home run from Albert Pujols yet and have series losses against the Twins, Royals, A's and Orioles. You'll finally get your chance to shine, even with the Angels messing up and dumping Bobby Abreu instead of Wells. But hey, if you're gonna pay someone $65 million, you might as well let him play for it, am I right? I'm not? Well...that's like, your...opinion, man. By the way, Trout's final Triple-A line: .403/.467/.623 with a homer, five triples and four doubles. With 6-for-7 in stolen base ...

AROUND THE WEB
At some point this season, Albert Pujols is going to turn it on. He has to. Through 23 games this season, Pujols has yet to hit his first homerun as a member of the Angels and has only four RBIs. He is hitting .217 with an on-base percentage of .265. Albert is one of the reasons Los Angeles is off to an 8-15 start, and he will probably be one of the reasons they go on a tear at some...
Los Angeles Angels hitting coach Mickey Hatcher did not reveal any deep, dark secrets to the media, but Albert Pujols was a bit annoyed that Hatcher talked publicly about what was said during an Angels' hitting meeting. Pujols, who is experiencing one of the worst slumps of his career, was one of the Angels players who spoke at the meeting on Monday before the series opener...
It wouldn't be soon, but years from now the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim could be leaving the City of Anaheim for a new stadium located in downtown Los Angeles.The Los Angeles Times is reporting that Angels' owner Arte Moreno and Angels Chairman Dennis Kuhl met this month with AEG President Tim Leiweke about getting a new stadium built for the team, as AEG is a local expert...
As the Angels bullpen bungled away six leads in the first 22 games of the season, Angels general manager Jerry Dipoto had good reason to look back on the winter and wonder what he could have done to forestall the relief issues that are likely to haunt them this season.
But the Angels GM says he has no regrets about his decision to make only modest changes in the bullpen, signing...
You'd think by now that the citizens of Anaheim would've learned that when Arte Moreno wants something, he usually gets it (Carl Crawford excluded). This proved to be a wonderful trait this last off-season when Moreno laid out big money to land C.J. Wilson and Albert Pujols (yeah, I know, no homers, give it time people), but now that Arte's attentions have turned to...
The Los Angeles Angels' struggles at the plate continue. Left-hander C.J. Wilson doesn't need the reminder.
Wilson will try to avoid losing a career high-tying three consecutive starts Monday night when the host Angels begin their second series against the Minnesota Twins this season.
Los Angeles (7-15) begins a seven-game homestand after hitting .165 and scoring nine total...
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- C.J. Wilson pitched five-hit ball into the eighth inning, Torii Hunter homered and drove in three runs, and the Los Angeles Angels returned from a rough road trip with a 4-3 victory over the miserable Minnesota Twins on Monday night.
Chris Iannetta also homered in the Angels' second victory in eight games, scoring at least four runs for the first time...
Monday against Minnesota, the Angels broke the two run barrier for the first time in eight games, hanging four runs on Nick Blackburn and the Twins. With C.J. Wilson and Scott Downs on their respective games, four was enough, and the Angels won just their second game in their last eight tries. The hero was Torii Hunter, who plated the Angels first three runs behind an RBI single...
