Series Preview: Angels @ Astros (Gaining Ground)

Angels bring their hot streak into the Texas heat If you were a casual Angels fan, would you want to see them as sellers given their current hot streak?  Probably not.  We need to settle on the reality that we won't be doing any farm building and probably won't be trading any players (though a Joe Smith trade wouldn't surprise me). The Angels are the hottest team in baseball right...

THIS is how the Angels build to compete in 2017

Not possible? It might be. Remember we are starting with the best player in baseball who is a great starting point for any team. NOTE:  This article is an actual plan, and not to be confused with my snarky article I wrote at the end of June :) The Angels have made it pretty clear where they stand on "rebuilding" the team and how their goal is to remain competitive year after...

Improved breaking ball has Angels relief pitcher Cam Bedrosian on track to become a closer, just like his father

HOUSTON – For the first couple years that Cam Bedrosian got a crack at the majors, he had merely a big fastball and a recognizable name. As major league hitters reminded him repeatedly, it takes more than that. A naked fastball and a major league...

According to this MLB Writer, Mike Trout without a doubt will be in the HOF

Angels MVP Mike Trout is already breaking records left and right, but is he worth being in the Hall of Fame? Sports Illustrated writer Jay Jaffe took a lot at the possible HOF player for the upcoming votes and into the future. Of course he talked about Trout and when he might be inducted into the HOF. But does he have the stats to prove it? Here’s Jaffe explanation on his process...

Jered Weaver's Future Is In The Los Angeles Angels Bullpen

This season has not been kind to the Los Angeles Angels. At 43 wins against 52 losses, the Halos are just a single game ahead of the last-place Oakland Athletics. Despite their recent surge — winning 10 of their last 12 games — the Angels are still 11.5 games back of the division-leading Texas Rangers, and there is little chance they capture the division. With the Toronto Blue...

The Hall of Fame Index: Albert Pujols

About five years ago there was an ad that MLB was running about the great players in the game. The general idea was, “remember the time when you saw Player A do this?” The commercial continued until it reached its epic conclusion, “do you remember the time when you saw Albert Pujols do everything?” The implication was pretty clear. At that time, Pujols would have been an...

Late: Angels Minor League All-Stars

The Angels collective minor league teams this year are each sitting below .500 (with the exception of Rookie Ball), so it’s difficult to get excited about players this year.  But regardless, there are some standouts that deserve to be recognized.  Keep in mind, this is not a top prospect list.  Some prospects rank rather high despite not putting up numbers.  These are simply...

The Los Angeles Angels are hoping to recharge after a lackluster first half of the 2016 season. The trade deadline is just about two weeks away and there have been some different rumors swirling around the Angels community.

2016 Trade Candidate: Geovany Soto

By Robert Cunningham, Staff Writer -  Recently reactivated from the disabled list, Geovany Soto was having an impressive offensive season while providing quality defense behind the plate.

What If Arte Moreno Had Splurged for Cespedes?

A few months ago, many Angel fans were dreaming about adding one of the premium free agent left fielders who were listening to bids this past off-season to the Halo roster, but those dreams poofed into the bitter reality of Arte Moreno’s new-found, tight-fisted, fiscal philosophy, and Halo Honks had to live with beginning the season with a Daniel Nava/Craig Gentry platoon in left...

Los Angeles Angels: the latest misfortune

If the big move that the Los Angeles Angels thought they were making was to bring in Tim Lincecum to aid and lead an already mediocre starting rotation, they were dreaming with their eyes open. After 2012, I felt like it was universally known that “The Freak” had already freaked out enough pitching coaches to actually secure a role on any staff; much less the Angels, who are...

Yunel Escobar blows off media after ejection: ‘F— that s—‘

Los Angeles Angels third baseman Yunel Escobar was ejected during his team’s loss to the Baltimore Orioles on Sunday, and he had no interest in discussing what happened after the game. It was a very unique ejection, to say the least. Home plate umpire Tim Timmons ruled that Orioles slugger Chris Davis checked his swing on a 1-1 count in the bottom of the seventh. Escobar disagreed...

Yunel Escobar ejected after drawing large home plate in infield dirt

Some may say ejections are an art form in baseball, but usually the best ejections come after a manager goes off in creative fashion. Sometimes, though a player gets creative too, and on Sunday, Angels infielder Yunel Escobar did just that. Following a called third strike on a check swing, Escobar was not pleased and he let the umpires know his displeasure in a rather unique way...
