The Angels have disappointed in the first half. Can they get it together and make a run?
Team: Los Angeles Angels
Record: 44-49 (11 GB)
Biggest Surprise of First Half:
The outfield duo of J.B. Shuck and Peter Bourjos. Bourjos has raked in the 40 games he’s played this season, producing a slash line of .333/.392/.457. To put that in perspective, Bourjos’ slash line for his...
After going on a hot streak heading into the All-Star Break, the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim had a chance to get over the .500 mark or at least just reach the .500 mark and all they had to do was go on the road for five games and comeback with a winning record for those five games. The five games were against the struggling Chicago Cubs and Seattle Mariners.

The Los Angeles Angels have set their starting rotation for the first four games of the second half. When the No. 5 spot comes around the team will need another arm, and right-hander Tommy Hanson could get the call to fill the void, according to Bob Sherwin of MLB.com.
Hanson threw a bullpen session on Saturday, logging 38 pitches, according to manager Mike Scioscia. The skipper...
The Los Angeles Angels should get some big time help in the starting pitching ranks this month. Tommy Hanson, as long as all goes well, is slated for a July 23rd return to the mound. Hanson has been out with a right forearm strain. However, he is inching closer to a return with each bullpen session he throws. Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register says Hanson has even...
The Big Apple and Mets’ Citi Field had the honor of holding the 84th MLB All-Star game; Mike Trout had the honor of being the only representative of the LA Angels of Anaheim.
Matt Harvey vs. Mike Trout. An intriguing young matchup started the Summer Classic. Harvey’s first pitch was a fastball on the outer-half of the plate.
Being the phenom he is, Trout swung first pitch...
C.J. Wilson was in New York City today as he was taking in some of the MLB All-Star Game festivities. He and his team the L.A. Angels are 11 games behind the Oakland A’s in the American League West. He knows that after the All-Star break the Angels need to start playing at a higher level to even get a chance to play in the postseason.
Wilson and I were able to chat about the All...

After hitting a hot streak and looking like a legitimate contender for .500 1st half (don't laugh) they end the run with a sweep in Seattle. Despite ending the 1st half on the season under .500 and facing an ugly sweep against the Mariners the Angels are still in a decent spot to make a run after the break. Out of the Angels next 20 games 13 of them are against teams ahead of...

Mike Trout - Yasiel Puig made his debut on June 3rd and posted a .391/.422/.616 slash line. Over that same span Mike Trout has gone for .367/.448/.597. That is an OPS by Trout that is seven points greater than Puig in a tougher run environment plus elite...
Mike Trout continues to live up to the hype and is having an excellent season without the help of Albert Pujols, and Josh Hamilton. Justin Upton started hot and finished hot to keep himself valuable. He hit 12 home runs in April and has hit just 4 over his last 235 ABs. But he did hit .319 in July before the break so that is a good sign of things to come. His brother B.J. on the...
The Angels did not have a good first half and they were looking to close it out with a win against Seattle, but the All-Star Hisashi Iwakuma had other ideas and the Angels finished the first half being swept by the Mariners.
Seattle scored four runs in the game. The first one coming in the 2nd inning courtesy of a Michael Saunders homer scoring Justin Smoak, in the 4th with...
