CJ Wilson takes embarrassing tumble

For average humanoids like you and I, it's always nice to be reminded that finely tuned millionaire athletes can be just as clumsy and accident prone as us norms.  Take Angels pitcher C.J. Wilson for instance, who when pitching tonight in Tampa Bay got devoured without mercy by the turf monster.  Thankfully, MLB's tumblr page saved the moment for posterity, because what...

C.J. Wilson trips and falls on way the mound (Video)

In what may be one of the most embarrassing moments for a major league baseball player this season (and funniest for us to watch), Los Angeles Angels pitcher C.J. Wilson tripped and fell flat on his face while jogging out to the mound during Tuesday night's game against the Tampa Bay Rays. Your browser does not support iframes.

Los Angeles Angels: A Decade Of Hits And Misses In The 1st Round

The Los Angeles Angles have been competitive for nearly a decade due to very good draft strategy and scouting. The past two off-seasons we have seen the Angels spend a large amount of money on top free agents C.J. Wilson, Albert Pujols and Josh Hamilton. Sadly though, buying your team sometimes does not work well and can’t expect players to just work well with each other. They...

C.J. Wilson Faceplants on Way to Mound, Recovers in Smooth Fashion (Video)

At least for one inning, pitching was easier than running for C.J. Wilson. During Tuesday night’s game against the Rays, the Angels pitcher was trotting out to the mound when he got tripped up and took a tumble at Tropicana Field. After gracefully hopping over the third base foul line, Wilson lost his footing, but he kept some dignity as he turned the embarrassing moment into a...

Angels' Kevin Jepsen out for season following appendectomy

Los Angeles Angels right-handed reliever Kevin Jepsen underwent an emergency appendectomy this weekend.

Jepsen underwent the surgery Saturday in Seattle. He is now resting comfortably, but will fly back to California...

Weaver leads Angels to sweep of Seattle in 7-1 win

SEATTLE (AP) -- Jered Weaver gave up just three hits in eight strong innings, Kole Calhoun added a two-run homer and the Los Angeles Angels completed a three-game sweep with a 7-1 win over the Seattle Mariners on Sunday.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -- Erick Aybar drove in four runs and the Los Angeles Angels rallied from a four-run deficit to beat the Tampa Bay Rays 6-5 on Tuesday night.

Angels continue spiral, drop third straight to Cleveland

It took the Angels 14 innings to score one run Tuesday. It took them just nine to do the same Wednesday. So there is that. As far as bright sides that’s about the best the Angels can muster these days. Another day came and went Wednesday and another loss was etched onto their ledger of despair — the Cleveland Indians completing a three-game sweep with a 3-1 victory to send...

Inches from failure, Angels sweep Mariners with 7-1 win

With the Angels sweeping the Mariners they've inched just a bit towards avoiding a complete disaster of a season. I mean, it still has been a monstrous disaster, but at least the Angels have shown enough life to look ready to avoid a 90 game losing season.

Sweep-ful in Seattle: Angels Dust Mariners, 7-1

Weaver being Weaver. The rest of the Angels being something other than the 2013 Angels. On a night in which the Los Angeles Angels completed a 3-game sweep of the Seattle Mariners every hitter in the Angels' lineup got a hit. This is a clear indicator that either the Apocalypse is upon us or (more likely) that the game was meaningless in terms of the playoffs.

Los Angeles Angels manager Mike Scioscia refuted reports of a rift with general manager Jerry Dipoto over differences in opinion regarding moves by the organization.
