Angels’ Chris Iannetta says Twitter haters tell him he should kill himself

Los Angeles Angels catcher Chris Iannetta became the latest athlete to speak out about the amount of vitriolic hate that can be spewed on social media, especially when a player is going through struggles. Iannetta is in the throes of an awful slump, notching only four hits in his previous 47 at-bats before Thursday’s game, which makes him an easy target for anonymous trolls and...

The hidden value of Chris Iannetta

One of the major themes in sports these days has been value; both on the field and off the field. Guys who get paid a pittance and give production far exceeding said wage is one of the most sought after things. In an era where teams are paying roughly $6 million per Win Above Replacement from players, having a veteran catcher behind the dish to handle a pitching staff and get on...

Finding Chris Iannetta In an Unexpected Place

Guess what! It’s time for my first pitch-framing post of the season. There will probably be dozens more of these. I don’t know what those ones will be about, but the purpose of this one is to highlight the early performance of Angels catcher Chris Iannetta. I know, of course, it’s super early! I know, […]

Los Angeles Angels: A rivalry renewed

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...

Questioning Chris Iannetta’s 2014 season

He didn’t get much credit for it, but Chris Iannetta turned in one heck of a season, at least offensively. He nearly beat out Mike Trout for the best OBP on the team and once again established himself as the primary catcher in the ever-changing Mike Scioscia catching depth chart. When did Iannetta become such an offensive force? I know, right? Iannetta ended up having a terrific...

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...
