Jason Vargas won 14 games last year for a Mariners club that finished 27th in runs scored. People say wins are bogus. For the most part that’s true. But if you toss over 200 innings with an ERA under 4.00, chances are you’re going to win a good amount of games no matter what offense is backing you. (That is, unless that offense is the historically pathetic Seattle Mariners from 2009 and 2010).
Now wearing Angels red, Vargas finds himself in an advantageous position. He gets the benefit of the awe-inspiring Mike Trout-[insert anyone]-Albert Pujols-Josh Hamilton stretch of death and he gets to stay in a pitcher-friendly ballpark. Frankly, I’d be a little surprised if Vargas didn’t win at least the 14 games we project, and the potential quality of LA’s offense could push his wins total to the upper teens.

The Halo farm system is... well, let's be nice and just say it is interesting. The talent is there, it just takes a little digging to find it. And when you do, it is soooo worth it. Let's not forget that the Angels are a team built largely from their own homegrown products, even with the recent reputation for big spending. 13 of their projected 25-man roster members...
2012 is drawing to a close. For the Angels, it was a bittersweet season as they welcomed superstars Mike Trout and Albert Pujols to the team, but also had to stomach the brutal disappointment of missing the playoffs. But here at MWAH, it was all good as we had our best year ever and even capped it off with our best month ever in December. How did it all happen? Because of...
