Angels have time to find a winning identity

ANAHEIM The beauty of a baseball season is that it stretches across a six months, through the long, hot days of summer and into autumn. You know what a team is all about by the end of September what its strengths are, where its weaknesses lie. Two games aren't enough to understand a team's identity. The Angels aren't quite sure who they are right now. They might look...

Angels win despite Pujols' quiet debut

Jered Weaver struck out 10 in eight dominant innings of four-hit ball, Peter Bourjos' bases-loaded infield single broke open a scoreless game in the eighth inning, and the Los Angeles Angels won Albert Pujols' hitless debut, 5-0 over the Kansas City Royals on Friday night. Erick Aybar put a bases-loaded triple down the right field line moments after two Kansas City infielders...

Pujols anticipating his Angels debut vs. Royals

Albert Pujols has settled into his new locker at Angel Stadium, and his new teammates already think they're getting to know the superstar slugger pretty well. Now it's time for Pujols to formally introduce himself to his new fans. The three-time NL MVP will debut for the Los Angeles Angels on Friday night against the Kansas City Royals on opening day of the most anticipated...

Weaver has promising start against Royals

ANAHEIM In the ninth inning Friday night, with the game finally well in hand, Angels starter Jered Weaver was ready to keep pitching. But manager Mike Scioscia did the right thing. He told Weaver no way. "He's got a lot of starts to go," Scioscia said. "We wanted him to come out of the first one feeling good, and he did." On their opening night, the Angels...

Pujols signing a disaster for Angels

Albert Pujols is hitless (in large part due to the mastery of China-manian Bruce Chen) as an Angel and the St. Louis Cardinals are undefeated without their former MVP slugger.  This is the worst possible start to the season for those that are envious of the St. Louis Cardinals baseball franchise (see Cub fans), and the best possible outcome for goober* Cardinal enthusiast that...

Game Recap 4/7/12 -- The Hangover -- Royals 6 Angels 3

You could see this one coming from a mile away, what with the glow of the Angels' Opening Day win shining brightly. After last night, I would have bet money the Royals were going to come out and do what they could to win. And even though I believe Dan Haren will have a great year, it was apparent from the outset that he didn't have it today. Couple that with the fact that...

Angels minor league Opening Day observations

Austin Wood (#30 prospect on the MWAH/LAAI Top Prospect List) looks like he’s going to be jumping up the prospect lists pretty soon.  His fastball was sitting 97-98, his delivery is extremely smooth, it’s an EFFORTLESS 97-98.  His slider is absolutely lethal, reminds me a lot of Jepsen’s.  He loses his release point often though, and when that happens he’s dangerously...

5 Things To Look For Today Against The Angels

With the Royals first game of the season today, here is five things to look for against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. 1.  How well does Albert Pujols play for his new team? The former Cardinals slugger signed a 10 year, 240 million deal with the Los Angeles Angels back in late 2011. Albert Pujols has a lot to live up to with a contract that big. So far he is tearing up spring...

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Luke Hochevar took a shutout into the seventh inning and the Kansas City Royals got solo homers from Eric Hosmer and Mike Moustakas against Dan Haren in a 6-3 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Saturday.

Game Recap 4/6/12: Weave's Steadying Hand - Angels 5, Royals 0

There is a lot of hoople and hyperbole that surrounds Opening Day that, by the third inning, usually fades into the background. Players feed off the initial adrenaline before collapsing back into the routine of the game. Tonight this effect was on full display. Some things were new. Albert Pujols got a huge ovation then went out and put up an 0-3 with an intentional walk. Vernon...
