Monkey with a Halo:
I'm sure that the mere fact Angel fans are celebrating three wins in a row on the road shoudl be an indicator about the state of affairs in and around this team. But tonight's win over the White Sox carries with it the air of a team righting the ship. The Angels are slowly starting to resemble the sqaud we all thought we were getting at the beginning of the season. The hitting is there, the defense is solid and the pitching is serviceable enough to get wins. I know its not much, but three wins in a row is still the best indicator that maybe this team isn't DOA.

-- Mike Trout seems to have settled into the two hole and is starting to pile up hits again. His two run homer in the first set the tone for the game and allowed the pitchers to work from the lead for a change. This is key because we have seen that the starters do not do well when facing adversity so early runs are paramount to success.

Major League Baseball announced Friday that umpire Fieldin Culbreth, the crew chief in Thursday night’s game between the Los Angeles Angels and Houston Astros, has been suspended two-games and fined for the misapplication of Rule 3.05(b) in the top of the seventh inning.
Director of Scouting Ric Wilson snagged Stamets in the 6th round after Sappington and the Angels sent him straightway to Low-A ball where he held his own and demonstrated gold glove defense.
Eric Stamets has two plus tools, speed and defense at shortstop. With well above-average speed, Stamet's home-to-first times is in the 4.1-second range from the right side of the plate...
Josh Hamilton doesn't care what the fans have to say about him, or even whether his team wins or loses, according to a recent column by T.J. Simers of the Los Angeles Times.
"You cannot push my buttons," Hamilton repeatedly said, according to Simers.
Texas Rangers fans may finally have some insight into Hamiltons carefree attitude at the end of last season while his...
Tell me if I'm wrong guys, but when we were in high school and college there were just a few things we needed to have the perfect life--babes, beer, bad ass ride, bucks, and balls (baseballs, footballs; whatever your game of choice is).
Most of us are probably far from living the life that we envisioned back then, but not Angels starting pitcher C.J. Wilson. No, he's got...
There are several different adjectives that one could use to describe the season so far for the Los Angeles Angels, almost none of which are appropriate for anyone under the age of 16. It's been a rough start to the 2013 campaign for the Halos, with almost no exceptions.
Even Mike Trout, who went from rookie to legend in the span of only a few months in 2012, has had his...
The Los Angeles Angels have recalled right-handed pitcher Robert Coello from their Triple-A Salt Lake minor league affiliate. Making room for him on the active roster, the organization has optioned outfielder Scott Cousins to the same farm club. Coello will provide bullpen depth for Los Angeles.

Mike Trout singled with one out in the seventh inning for the Los Angeles Angels' first baserunner against Chris Sale of the Chicago White Sox.
The game remains scoreless.
C.J Wilson has transformed himself into a great starting pitcher
This article pays tribute to my favorite player in the game of baseball, Los Angeles Angels starting pitcher, C.J. Wilson. When Wilson rose to the major leagues with the Texas Rangers in 2005, he flip-flopped from starting to relieving and starting and relieving. Not something young pitchers really want to do...
CHICAGO (AP) -- Mike Trout had two hits, including the go-ahead single in the seventh inning, to lead the Los Angeles Angels to a 7-5 win over the Chicago White Sox on Friday night.
Hank Conger reached on Conor Gillaspie's error to start the inning and scored on Trout's sharp single to right off reliever Matt Lindstrom that gave the Angels a 6-5 lead. J.B. Shuck then scored...

There are fans who don’t expect much from their team in the beginning of the season and consequently give up by July when the team has confirmed all of their predictions. There are fans that expect their team to do well and maybe even make the playoffs, but are left distraught by July when they...

GAME 34 - WHITE SOX AT ANGELS
ANAHEIM -- Now the Chicago White Sox know how the Cleveland Indians must have felt.
It was 11 days ago that the Angels routed the Indians, 21-2, in the type of game that seems to come around only once a season, if that.
But the Angels did it again Friday, knocking the White Sox...
Well, so much for the Angels turning things around. Finally owning a three-game winning streak, the Halos ran into a buzzsaw. A buzzsaw with pipe cleaner arms and some pretty wicked stuff.
There really isn't any mystery here. Chris Sale was terrific, the Halos hitters were not. It is something we have seen all too often from a lineup that was supposed to be one of the best...
