Well, that didn’t go well. Can we just pretend that game didn’t happen? Every year each team has a handful of those games where everything goes wrong and they get their butt kicked. This was one of those games for the Angels. In fact, they’ve only allowed double-digit runs three times this year. Once was this game, then there was an early season game against Toronto and then...

C.J. Wilson has been very outspoken in supporting Josh Hamilton, whom he played with in Texas before they both signed with the Los Angeles Angels in consecutive years. While the Angels were in Houston for a series against the Astros this week, Wilson was one of several players and coaches who went to visit Hamilton,...Read More
The Angels have been at odds with Josh Hamilton, and few have been more supportive of the outfielder than C.J. Wilson. Wilson was teammates with Hamilton in Texas before the two joined the Angels in successive years. He empathizes with Hamilton’s addiction battles and also stands up for his teammate partly because of his role...Read More
