Boxscore Breakdown #19: Too many mistakes – Rangers 5, Angels 4

Back when the Angels offense wasn’t hot garbage, they could erase a lot of mistakes by sheer volume of runs. Now that the offense stinks out loud, dropping a pop-up, booting a grounder, getting picked off, blowing a save and coughing up an insurance run are things they can no longer overcome. They certainly can’t when the do all of those things in the same game. Rangers 5,...

Boxscore Breakdown #17: Meanwhile, in Anaheim – Angels 3, Rangers 2

While everyone was still processing the pending Josh Hamilton trade back to Texas, a ballgame broke out between the Angels and Rangers. It was a game where it seemed that everything that could go wrong for the Angels would, right up until the bottom of the eighth when everything went oh so right. It gave the Angels the victory on the field over the Rangers and, depending on your...

Who to worry about the most in the struggling Angels offense

When it comes to the Angels offense, the struggle is real. One of the best lineups in all of baseball in 2014 swapped out Josh Hamilton and Howie Kendrick for Matt Joyce and Johnny Giavotella. The result? The offense has gone straight into the crapper for the first 14 games of the 2015 season. The Angels offense is currently mired at 12th in the American League with a wRC+ of...

It’s like this and like that and like and uh. It is also like Johnny Giavotella is actually pretty good.

Oakland Athletics Lose Big in Game 2 at the Big A

An overturned replay review and a flood of miscues in the field sent the Oakland Athletics tumbling to a 14-1 loss against the Los Angeles Angels on Tuesday night. The trouble started for Drew Pomeranz in the third inning. It looked like the squad had gotten out of the frame on a double-play ball off the bat of C.J. Cron, but the call at first was reversed after New York took a...

Can C.J. Cron fill the void in the Angels line-up left by loss of Kendrick and Hamilton?

Cron key to Angels Success in 2015? By David Rice      The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim have gone through some major changes over this past winter.  A major decision was to trade one of their two longest tenured players in second baseman Howie Kendrick.  Another major change is the fact that former All-Star left fielder Josh Hamilton had a relapse in his fight against...

Five Bold Predictions for the Angels in 2015

Every year around this time I come up with BOLD predictions for the Angels in the upcoming year and so far, the bolder the better. These predictions aren’t meant to be realistic in nature(though they do end up coming to fruition 40% of the time), rather, they’re meant to open fans eyes about the possibilities that may arise during the regular season. Two years ago, it was prospect...

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim star outfielder Mike Trout might just be the best player in baseball. A first-round draft pick out of Millville (N.J.) High School in 2009, Trout never attended college. He had been committed to East Carolina but eschewed the college route to begin his promising pro career.  Apparently, the 23-year-old Trout has adopted Duke as his college basketball...

2015 Player Projection: C.J. Cron

Cron working to ensure he's on Angels' opening day roster

TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) It will be difficult for Angels manager Mike Scioscia to keep a player with the power potential of C.J. Cron out of the batting order this season. At 6-foot-4 and 235 pounds, the right-handed hitting Cron is more than capable of slamming pitches beyond the fence at Angels Stadium. Cron will get some early practice with that this spring with the rocky butte beyond...

C.J. Cron, 2015 Fantasy Sleeper

It always concerns me when I put too much faith in The Sciosciapath playing a guy that is under 25 years old. A bigger concern is one that is currently penciled in at DH. If Josh Hamilton gets a nagging injury, then he's going to DH and C.J. Cron will be benched. Same, really, with any Angels player. The only one we don't have to worry about is Pujols. Not because Pujols is guaranteed...

Should the Angels try to trade Erick Aybar?

Everyone knows the Angels are looking to trade an infielder this winter. They are said to be open to trading David Freese. They’d be grateful if someone gave them anything of value for Gordon Beckham. They’d be willing to let C.J. Cron go in the right deal. They can’t stop telling reporters that Howie Kendrick is on the block. The one guy that doesn’t appear to be available...
