Angels needs going into the offseason

The Angels are needy. All they do want, want want. They were the best team in baseball in 2014 with 98 wins, yet here they are acting like greedy little brats, demanding more toys for their roster so they can be even better. Ugh, what an insufferable ballclub. Fine, let’s humor this spoiled brat and actually take a look at these supposed needs and determine which of them are...

With all that in mind, here’s a quick rundown of the Angels and the roster decisions they have to make before the ALDS against...

Boxscore Breakdown #160: Tuned up – Mariners 4, Angels 3

This was supposed to be a nice tune up game for Jered Weaver as he readied himself for Game 1 of the ALDS. Instead, he was the one that got tuned up. In a fitting piece of symmetry, Weaver ended his regular season as he began it, with a middling and mildly concerning loss at the hands of the Mariners. Gone was the velocity spike that Weaver had seen in his last two starts. In those...

Boxscore Breakdown #154: Hector Blantiago – Rangers 12, Angels 3

It was another disaster of a start for Hector Santiago. Or should we start to call him Hector Blantiago? It was so frustrating that I am struggling to put it into words, but sometimes actions speak louder than words… Yeah, that sums it pretty well. Run Expectancy Rundown The starters hit like they were still hungover, but some of the reserves did some things of note. C.J. Cron...

Boxscore Breakdown #150: The drought is over – Angels 8, Mariners 1

The drought is over! No, you still can’t water your lawn, but you can go out on that dried out lawn and jump for joy that the Angels will be returning to the playoffs after missing out the last four seasons. Maybe you can even water your lawn with a celebratory champagne shower. It might be more prudent to wait until they clinch the AL West though. Or maybe all celebrations...

Boxscore Breakdown #145: No cycle for you – Angels 8, Rangers 1

Because the Angels basically have the AL West and the best record in baseball in the bag, the fans are running out of things to care about in these final weeks. Despite it being a farily close game in the early going, the talk was all about Albert Pujols gunning for the cycle. There might not be an accomplishment in baseball I care less about than the cycle. It is utterly meaningless...

Boxscore Breakdown #140: Not making it look easy – Angels 7, Twins 6

Another win for the Angels, but they once again made it look much harder than it had to be. Not to complain too much since they did win and did expand their lead in the AL West, but it sure would be nice to see them have a few nice, comfortable wins against these weak teams. With 22 games left, they are running out of time to convince us they are firing on all cylinders headed into...

Welcome to Monkeying Around, a monthly-ish column in which I basically mail it in. Usually it is because I couldn’t think of a good topic, but this time it is because I am on vacation from the job that actually pays my mortgage. So it isn’t that I don’t have a good topic, it is that I just am too lazy to write it.

Boxscore Breakdown #124: Staying “hot” – Angels 4, Red Sox 3

The Angels win again and stay “hot.” Hooray! Hooray? Hooray, right? How a team wins shouldn’t matter so much as the fact that they do win, but this Angels team is not winning pretty right now. In their last seven wins, they’ve only won by more than two runs once and been out-hit three times. There is a lot of luck involved here. That portends poorly for after this series...

Koji got the first two outs in the 9th, but Brennan Boesch (not to be confused...
