Man dresses as Iron Man tries to get in Mike Trout's head

Iron Man — who was seated just behind home plate for Sunday's Angels-Tigers game — made sure to give the slumping Mike Trout some hitting advice before his at-bat in the top of the 8th in a tight, 2-1 contest.No, it wasn't baseball's version of Iron Man, Cal Ripken — or even Tony Stark — but some Tigers fan dressed in a cloth version of the superhero's exoskeleton...

Mike Trout did something for the first time on Saturday

Mike Trout has achieved a lot for someone who has had only two full seasons in the Major Leagues. He’s led the league in runs twice, and led once each in stolen bases and walks while lapping his competition in terms of WAR. But on Saturday afternoon against the Tigers, Trout achieved something he had never done in 352 career games. He struck out four times, earning the golden...

Albert Pujols’ 500th home run will be an achievement worthy of our attention

If you learned to love baseball in the 1980′s and early 1990′s such as myself, than you’ll remember the days when 35 home runs was enough to lead either league, and that the 54 homers hit by Cecil Fielder in 1991 was a very big deal. Regardless of who’s at fault, the days of low-numbered, long-ball champions are gone, and because of the PED-era, nobody will ever approach...

Los Angeles Angels Top 10 Prospects

The Los Angeles Angels have one of the worst farm systems in baseball. None of the prospects on this list project as All-Stars or even good Major League players. Cowart, Lindsey, and Cron have the potential to become solid regulars. The pitchers on this list all have high ceilings, but are very raw. Given the state of the Angels’ payroll and farm system, it is imperative that the...

Albert Pujols Approaches 500 HRs… And Nobody Cares

Sometimes you read a piece and it says everything you feel. Bob Nightengale does just that with an article from the USA Today on Albert Pujols and his pending milestone 500th homerun. The reason the Angels were able to justify (at least to themselves) that Albert was worth the 240 million dollar contract they offered was that they were going to get one of the all-time greats, yes...

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...

Angels reliever Joe Smith takes injury of Kole Calhoun tough

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- At this point, you could take your pick. Which member of the Angels bullpen would be the next to relinquish a lead? You could go down the list. By the numbers, it certainly was not to be Joe Smith. In an ineffective bullpen, he was an effective one. In six appearances, he allowed just three hits, eight strikeouts, no walks, and a 0.00 ERA. Yet, on Tuesday night...

Angels lose leadoff batter Kole Calhoun to a right ankle sprain

A frustrating 10-9, 11-inning loss to the Oakland Athletics grew even more painful for the Angels Tuesday night when they lost Kole Calhoun to a right ankle sprain, an injury that will send their starting right fielder and leadoff hitter to the disabled list on Wednesday. Calhoun was just starting to heat up at the plate with three consecutive multi-hit games, raising his average...

Mike Trout's clutch HR not enough as Angels downed by A's in extras

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Mike Trout tried his best to be the hero Tuesday night. The Angels star hit a two-run homer to tie the game in the bottom of the ninth to force extra innings. In the bottom of the 11th, representing the tying run again, he legged out an infield single, stole second base, and advanced to third on a Raul Ibanez groundout to first, but he never made it home. Of the...

Things get ugly late as Angels unravel in loss to A's

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Angels manager Mike Scioscia used his first replay challenge of the season, but like everything else that happened in the ninth inning Monday night, it didn't go very well. Scioscia didn't get an umpire's call at first base overturned, and the Angels, who were looking to go over .500 for the first time since opening day last season, imploded. They were...

Los Angeles Angels have early concerns about Ibanez

During the offseason, it seemed as though the Los Angeles Angels were headed in the right direction. In return for the streaky and strikeout-prone Mark Trumbo, the team received some arms to help the struggling starting rotation. This left the Angels in need of a heavy hitter, which they seemingly found in veteran Raul Ibanez. The 41-year-old appears to be the prototypical designated...
