Found February 03, 2012 on Monkey with a Halo:

Another week, another look back at all the wonderful, interesting and insightful things the Angels players have been tweeting.  This week we get some questionable parenting advice, hear about a prospect's relationship problems and get forcefully introduced to awful country music.

Victor Rojas is a very good play-by-play announced.  As for being a father?  I think he might have some work to do still:

Every time one of my kids starts their story w "one time", I always seem to interject "at band camp." This is followed by prolonged silence.

— Victor Rojas (@VictorRojas29) January 27, 2012

When his kids are old enough to understand that movie reference, Victor is going to have some explaining to do.

Sounds like Angel relief prospect Daniel Tillman has some girl problems:

She kisses the dog, says goodbye to it, and walks out without saying one word to you #dogismoreimportantthanyou #dontbethatguy...#imthatguy

— Daniel Tillman (@dtillman24) February 1, 2012

If not, he should have a nice side career writing lyrics for awful country songs.

Speaking of awful country music, I just lost a little respect for Mike Trout:

Red solo cup !

— Mike Trout (@Trouty20) January 29, 2012

If you don't know what Trout is tweeting about, watch this:


Good luck getting that out of your head any time in the next month.  Damn you, TROUT!!!!!

And finally, Chevy Clarke, the internet's foremost purveyor of meaningless thoughts provides us all with a picture perfect example of irony:

Stand for something worthwhile... or you will be continuously preoccupied by meaningless things

— Chevez Chevy Clarke (@OfficialChevy) February 1, 2012

Also, a pretty good example of a complete and total lack of self awareness.



Should Mike Trout Hook A Starting Job?

Mike Trout is the catch of the day when it comes to center field prospects. After posting a gaudy .338/.422/.508 slash line in the minors, Trout made his big league debut this past season. Though his performance wasn’t all that impressive, Trout still has one of the highest ceilings of any prospect in baseball. But even though Trout no longer needs to prove himself in the minors...

Restaurant drops Pujols from name

Sales have slowed at the Pujols 5 Westport Grill in St. Louis since Albert skipped town, so the name will be changed to the Hall of Fame Sports Bar and Grill.

Local restaurant drops affiliation with Pujols

ST. LOUIS Continued anger and disappointment from Cardinals fans over the departure of slugger Albert Pujols has forced a St. Louis restaurant bearing his name to part ways. Pat Hanon, owner and founder of Pujols 5 Westport Grill, said Thursday that sales dropped so much in the recent months since the nine-time All-Star left for the Anaheim Angels that he had no choice but to end...

Angels' GM Jerry Dipoto corresponds with fans

ANAHEIM, CA-- Growing up in Dodger and Angel territory, I collected baseball cards, ticket stubs, photographs and programs; all the things baseball-crazed youngsters live for. I was a fanatic about the game. But I was never one of the kids who wrote a letter to a player or a GM asking for an autograph or asking a question. Many of my friends did and never saw the card(s) again,...

Restaurant Ditches Pujols Name...Keeps Statue

Remember a few months ago when it looked like Albert Pujols staying in St. Louis was promising because the Pujols 5 Westport Grill erected a 10-foot tall bronze statue of the slugger?Well, the statue stayed...even though the three-time National League MVP did not.And now, it looks as though restaurant owner Patrick Hanon is abandoning Pujols, who signed a gigantic contract with the...

Player Profile #90: C.J. Wilson | SP | LAA

Just when I had finally come around on C.J. Wilson as a starting pitcher, he up and leaves for a new organization. Thankfully he’s moving from the hitter-friendly Ballpark in Arlington to the hitter hell that’s Angel Stadium, but there are a lot of good reasons to like Wilson. He’s become a 200-inning starter, and he upped his strikeout rate last season to 8.30 K/9, which was...

C.J. Wilson’s Agent Wouldn’t Let Jerry DiPoto Use Bathroom During Negotiations Until He Added $5 Million to Offer

Sam Miller of the OC Register has been providing plenty of excellent background for the Angels’ signings of Albert Pujols and C.J. Wilson over the past week. If you’re an Angels fan or a fan of the business side of the game, it’s great reading to see how the deals came together. On Wednesday, Miller shared a great anecdote from the Wilson negotiations. According to Miller,...

Jerry Dipoto: Angels GM and... Pen Pal?

Here's something you don't see everyday.  And by everyday, I mean any day... ever. Any fan who has ever cared about a favorite baseball team has undoubtedly spent countless hours cooking up trades that they would like to see their team make.  It's ok, you can admit, we've all done it.  Most of us are also so certain that this trade is such a fantastic idea that...

Morales making progress with ankle

The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim are hoping that first baseman Kendrys Morales, who hasn't played in a game since May 29, 2010, will return to action this season. The switch-hitting slugger is currently taking batting practice at the Angels' spring training complex in Tempe.

Pujols will arrive early to Angels spring camp

Los Angeles Angels slugger Albert Pujols said he plans to show up at the team's spring-training complex in Tempe, Ariz., a week before the reporting date for position players, according to ESPNDeportes' Enrique Rojas.

C.J. Wilson...Tupac Fan?

I've never been much of a "judge a book by its cover" kind of guy...but I would have never thought that pitcher C.J. Wilson was a "Thugluv" kind of guy.But, as it turns out, the Los Angeles Angels lefty is (or at least "Christopher" Wilson was) just that.Most high school photos of anyone are pretty embarrassing, but the only thing embarrassing about...
