The relationship of Angels fans to manager Mike Scioscia = the “Jake from ‘State Farm’’ commercial. First, let me say that the “Jake” commercial is one of the most disturbing things on TV right now, right behind watching the Angels play.  The relationship of the couple in the commercial has to be teetering on the edge of destruction and I thin

Enright, Lowe never give the Angels a chance in 9-5 loss to Kansas City

All the Angels want is a chance to turn things around but their thin, decimated roster just isn't affording them one. Take tonight for example. By the third inning the game was essentially over because of how far down the depth chart the Angels have had to go. Barry Enright, who is the ninth starting pitcher the Halos have used this year, once again proved that he has no...

Blowpen Strikes Again; Angels Lose to White Sox 5- 4

  Games like this, I just can’t help but reminisce.  It’s just hitting me how spoiled we were back in the mid -2000s.  Pitchers like Scott Shields and K-Rod really don’t come around too often, and when they do it’s not long enough. Those were days, when the 8th and 9th innings were locked down by veterans, now we count on players you’ve never heard of (before this...
