Jerome Williams wants to be a starter for the Angels next season. Williams kept on making his case Sunday winning a third straight start for the first time since April 2004 as the Angels beat Houston 2-1 to send the Astros to their 98th loss. Houston a big league-worst 51-98 is on the verge of becoming the first major league team to reach triple figures in losses in three consecutive seasons since Kansas City from 2004-06. The Astros were 56-106 in 2011 and dropped to 55-107 last year their final year in the National League. Williams (8-10) entered following wins over Tampa Bay and Toronto and he gave up one run and five hits in seven innings. "This team is a real good team" said Williams who began the season in the bullpen. "I would love to come back and be part of this team and hopefully make that run for next year." A veteran of 10 seasons Williams knows he has to produce. "I just have to keep on working" Williams said. "I think I have two...

Pitcher thinks somebody is going to catch Mike Trout's 454 foot homer

The Angels slowed down the Oakland Athletics' march toward the division title for one game as they blew out Jarrod Parker and others for a 12-1 drubbing. As usually happens in blowouts in September with expanded rosters, a young pitcher is put in the game to get some experience. Thus, Pedro Figueroa (who is not exactly young at 27) was given a chance to pitch some Major League...

Angels, who beat A's, 12-1, could go shopping in Japan for a pitcher

The Angels' pursuit of pitching this winter will likely extend to the Far East where a significant rotation boost could be acquired without having to trade players such as Mark Trumbo or Howie Kendrick.

Angels continue late climb towards .500 with 12-1 romp over A's

Angels, so hot right now. Angels. There might not be another team in baseball hotter than the Angels, which is fun and great, but also kind of pointless. That part is unfortunate. This is the team we were expecting all season long. One that could go into Oakland, an equally as hot team that has actually been good all season, and beat the snot out of them. Alas, it is too little...

Blah, Blah, Blah; Angels win over Astros 6-2

I simply could not care less about this game. This is what it must have felt like to be a Pirates fan for the last 20 years. What we have here is a meaningless game between two teams who are all just counting the days till their seasons are over. All tonight did was highlight jsut how crushing losing 10 games to the Astros this year has been. There is no excuse for losing to this...
