It turns out that there are a lot of Angels fans that are upset with the moves because they weren’t BIGGER moves. Many Angels fans vocalized their displeasure that the Halos didn’t land a bigger name. The problem with...

Angels fill outfield, add David Murphy & David DeJesus

The Angels have recently stormed back to take over the AL West lead, largely thanks to their offense, but outside of Mike Trout, the outfield has been a major issue. Collin Cowgill is on the 60 day DL and Matt Joyce is on the 7 day concussion DL, but the Angels may be happy about the second as he had produced just a 0.2 WAR this year. Of others Daniel Robertson has been worth 0.0...

Angels stockpile outfielders, acquire Murphy and DeJesus

Yesterday, the Angels picked up Shane Victorino to serve as the right-handed portion of an LF platoon, presumably spelling Matt Joyce against left-handers. Today, though, the team imported two left-handed part-time outfielders, making Joyce particularly redundant. In a pair of moves reported at virtually the same time, the Angels have acquired David Murphy from the […]

Angels Pick Up Used But Functional Shane Victorino

The Angels find themselves in what you might term a familiar situation. They’re right in the thick of the race, like they’ve often been, and they’re run by the guys that used to run them, by which I mean Bill Stoneman and Mike Scioscia. Stoneman and Scioscia see eye-to-eye on a number of things, and […]

Angels acquire Shane Victorino from the Red Sox

We have a trade. According to Fox Sports Jon Morosi, the Los Angeles Angels acquired outfielder Shane Victorino from the Boston Red Sox in exchange for infielder Josh Rutledge and cash. The move, while not monumental, makes sense for the Angels. The club has primarily used Matt Joyce in left field, which has yielded disappointing results. In 86 games, Joyce is batting below the...
