Boxscore Breakdown #15: Stolen Away – Athletics 9, Angels 2

Focus if you want on the bullpen meltdown (and I will tomorrow in Second Guessing Scioscia because, woof), but the real thing that killed the Angels in this game was the steals. Chris Iannetta just couldn’t throw anyone out and it cost them dearly. The first A’s run scored because Fuld stole his way into scoring position. There was another threat in the second because Semien...

2015 Player Projection: Chris Iannetta

Chris Iannetta had one of the best years of his career in 2014 and he didn’t even need the Coors Field altitude to do it. Can he repeat his OBP dominance now that he is the undisputed primary catcher for the Angels? What happened in 2014?Chris Iannetta started the season off is a pretty rigid platoon with Hank Conger, as expected. What wasn’t expected is that the platoon would...

Considering a Chris Iannetta extension

The Angels are in extension talking mode and one of their current targets is reportedly catcher Chris Iannetta. He’s been exactly what the Halos needed over his three-year tenure behind the plate. Heck, he’s been one of the few catchers (non-Molina family edition) that hasn’t spent significant time in Scioscia’s doghouse. But he’s also about to be 32 and doesn’t have...

Chris Iannetta's walk-off HR lifts Angels past A's in 12

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Chris Iannetta is no stranger to the moment but even he was a bit surprised by his results Wednesday night. The ball doesn't carry particularly well at Angel Stadium at night, but Iannetta got just enough of a Drew Pomeranz pitch to lift the Angels to a 5-4 win over Oakland in 12 innings. Even in the dugout, there were some reservations when Angels players heard...
