Jered Weaver, the long ball and the damage done; Angels lose to Astros 4-2

A home run proved fatal, but only because the Angels had no answer to Houston pitching. Angels 2  Astros 4 The Astros didn't seem to take to kindly to getting that can of whoop ass opened up on them last night, but instead of laying down some mighty lumber work, they were prepared to exact revenge from the mound. It would be a battle of arms, one Dallas Keuchel vs. one Jered Weaver...

Mike Trout at 40

After watching anything for a prolonged period of time, it is inevitable that that thing, no matter how incredible, will become normalized and lose some of its luster. Our brains can be a bummer that way. Given that, it’s important to take a step back from time to time with the point of re-instilling some of that initial sense of wonder that can get lost along the way. Enter...

Angels 2012 draft retrospective: Jerry Dipoto does his best with one arm tied behind his back

Continuing our look at the past five years of drafts for the Angels, today we have 2012 on deck and we're ready to, in the words of Ian Mackaye, look back and laugh. I say that only because in hindsight, these things are ALWAYS funny, even though whether the draft could be deemed a success or failure is a different story altogether. Such lofty heights and aspirations for even the...

Boxscore Breakdown #47: Ugly Baseball – Rangers 15, Angels 9

Woof. The Angels played about as sloppy a game as is possible at the big-league level on Wednesday. The team blew two leads, committed two errors, made at least one bone-headed throw, and failed to have even one of their five pitchers survive the day without giving up a run. In the end, they lost by their third-largest margin of the year despite plating nine runs themselves. ...

Mike Scioscia was prepared to use shortstop Brendan Ryan to pitch in blowout loss to Rangers

ARLINGTON, Texas – The Angels nearly tried something Wednesday that Mike Scioscia had never done in 17 seasons as manager. Had Rafael Ortega not hit a three-run home run in the top of the eighth inning, trimming the Angels’ deficit against the...

Boxscore Breakdown #46: Southpaw Shutdown – Rangers 4, Angels 1

The Angels’ strange struggles against left-handed starters continued Tuesday night. Martin Perez held the Halos offense to just five hits—all singles—and no runs in six innings, striking out six. His gem was already the 10th quality start (out of 16 chances) a southpaw has tossed against Angels this season, and it lowered the lineup’s OPS vs LHPs to a paltry .667. That’s...

No, Things Are Not Looking Up For Albert Pujols

Dan McCarthy wrote a small article on ESPN.com with the title, “Perhaps things are looking up for Albert Pujols.” Here is the thing, though: Things are not looking up for Pujols, and likely never will again. Albert Pujols has never had a great season for the Los Angeles Angels. He has not once had a batting average over .300 or an on-base percentage over .400 while on the...

Despite better offensive numbers when he plays first base, Angels' Albert Pujols says he's fine with more games at DH

ARLINGTON, Texas – Albert Pujols shrugged off the question, but the numbers, at least through the first eight-plus weeks of this season, remain rather clear. He hits better when he plays first base, as he did here Monday when he drove a two-run...

Tim Lincecum is Worth the Gamble to the Los Angeles Angles

The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim have been suffering at the hands of their injury-ridden bullpen. Left-hander C.J. Wilson’s run-in with shoulder tendonitis has placed him on the unavailable list, alongside Craig Gentry and Cliff Pennington to name a few. Because the AL West is still anyone’s game at this point in the season, the Angels need pitchers if they hope to remain in...

Beach ball thrown on the field costs Angels batter a strike

This is why you shouldn't bring a beach ball to a sporting event. A ball being tossed around the crowd Sunday night at Angel Stadium landed on the field in the fourth inning of the Angels' game against the Orioles, which distracted Angels first baseman C.J. Cron. Cron asked for time and turned his back on the plate, but Kevin Gausman threw a called strike to even the count at 2-2...

Diagnosing the Angels: Mike Trout Can’t Do It All

Imagine having the best baseball player in the league and it mattering very little. That’s largely been the case for the Los Angeles Angels since 2012 when Mike Trout made his debut. In that time, he’s taken home the Rookie of the Year and was named the AL’s Most Valuable Player. He’s finished runner-up for the latter three times, and if Manny Machado has anything to say...

Angels GM says team has not discussed trading Mike Trout

No, folks, Mike Trout is not going to be traded any time soon. With the Los Angeles Angels off to an 18-22 start and looking nothing like a contender, some outsiders raised the question of whether the team would entertain trading Trout for a huge prospect haul to allow them to rebuild. Perhaps, they reason, the Angels would be willing to move their star center fielder. So, Angels...

Los Angeles Angels pitcher Garrett Richards has an elbow injury that he has been told will require Tommy John surgery, but the right-hander is trying to avoid the procedure for the time being. Richards received a stem cell injection on Monday and will be reevaluated in six weeks to see how — or if — his torn ulnar collateral ligament is healing. “It’s done just in hopes...
