The Big Bang Theory Gang Takes in an Angels Game

I’ve only seen one episode (it was awful), so I’m not going to sit here and pretend I know anything about the hit CBS sitcom “The Big Bang Theory”, but it is routinely one of the top rated comedies on television and, for reasons unknown to me, continues to somehow get nominated for (and win) awards. So, yeah…someone must like it. Monday’s installment found our gang of...

Why The Los Angeles Angels Will Win The World Series

The year was 2004. The Los Angeles Angels seemed very different than they do now. Mike Trout was playing Little League, Jered Weaver was a young prospect in Single-A, and Josh Hamilton was on the road to drug addiction. A team fresh of a World Series title two years prior was swept in the Division Series by a team that hadn’t won a World Series in almost a century. Then came 2005...

MLB Playoffs 2014 – Best to Worst Scenarios (Angels Edition)

By Glen McKee, Senior HumoristThe playoffs are finally here and for the first time since Obama was still a rookie, the Angels are back in the playoffs.  Time for the hacks to bust out their “LA Angels of Anaheim of Los Angeles of California of the USA of Earth!  LOL!” lame-assed jokes.  It’s also time for predictions – mine at the end of this – and for...

Ten Most Essential Angels in October: #10-8

#10: CP Huston StreetIt was the June 18th trade for Huston Street that brought upon many questions from analysts and fans alike. The Angels had sent 4 of their top prospects in  SP Elliot Morris, SS Jose Rondon, 2B Taylor Lindsey, and most notably reliever R.J. Alvarez in exchange for Street and 22-year-old RP Trevor Gott. With such a huge price tag payed in the form of talented...

Angels Players Power Rankings – End of regular season edition

This is the final Angels Player Power Rankings for the regular season. It is NOT the last edition of the year though. My plan is to do one at the end of each playoff round. Hopefully that means I get to do three of those. After that, I’ll do one big blowout edition after the season is totally over and rank everyone who so much as entered a game for the Angels this year. So,...

Los Angeles Angels: Mike Trout the obvious choice for MVP

It has long been known by Los Angeles Angels fans that center-fielder Mike Trout is one of the best players in the league. Many would argue that he, and not Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera deserved to win the Most Valuable Player award each of the last two years. The good news is that this year, Trout’s time has finally come. At age 23, Trout has once again delivered an incredible...

Mike Trout Shows Off Vertical With Sensational ‘Video Game’ Catch (Video)

Mike Trout is a freak, and that’s in absolutely the best way possible. The Los Angeles Angels phenom is putting the finishing touches on another MVP-caliber season on one of the major leagues’ best teams. He proved Friday night that he’s not going to let up at all heading into the postseason. Trout made another sensational defensive play against the Seattle Mariners. Seattle’s...

WATCH: Mike Trout robs Kendrys Morales of extra bases

What else can we really say about the defense of Mike Trout aside from “holy crap”? This twisting, leaping catch in the eighth inning of Friday’s Angels-Mariners game at Safeco Field robbed Kendrys Morales of extra bases. However, it wouldn’t end up matter too much – Seattle still hung on to win 4-3 and keep their minuscule playoff hopes intact. The post Mike Trout made...

Mike Trout: Thrice an AL MVP bridesmaid?

Mike Trout is the best all-around player in Major League Baseball. There are decent arguments he should have won the American League MVP during his first two full big league seasons, which is remarkable, and he’s probably the front-runner in 2014. But my vote this season goes to Victor Martinez. When he wasn’t being chirped at by Chris Sale Wednesday afternoon, Detroit’s first...
