Angels rolling towards .500; defeat Astros again

I very much enjoy when the Angels win. After a season that has been marked with some truly wretched play, its a nice change to see the Halos play the way they are supposed to. Now I know I have probably written that statement on more than one occasion this season only to see the Angels slide back into a pit of bad baseball, but this time it appears to be different. The team is playing...

HOUSTON -- Houston Manager Bo Porter called Angels Manager Mike Scioscia on Saturday to apologize for what many players consider a bush-league ploy, one that caused confusion between Angels catcher Hank Conger and first baseman Mark Trumbo on a popup that dropped in front of the Astros dugout Friday night.

Better Late than Never; Angels top Astros 4-2

I haven't shave since last Sunday. This is partly because I loathe the process of shaving. Ever since I made this monumental decision the Angels have not lost a game. Now I know my folical expansion has no correlation to the Angels' winning streak hitting four games. I am not usually into this sort of superstitious argle fargle ( copyright Justice Scalia) but desperate...
