Boxscore Breakdown #18: Delayed gratification – Angels 4, Rangers 1

So this is the new Angels, isn’t it? Frustration in the early innings, a desperate rally in the middle innings and then holding on for dear life in the late innings. When they win, that’s pretty much how it goes. When they lose, they skip the middle innings part. This is no way to live. Angels 4, Rangers 1 Run Expectancy Rundown This was shaping up to be a very frustrating...

Angels vs. Astros Series Preview: Texas Two-Step

It only took the league three seasons into Houston’s tenure in the AL West to finally figure out that when the Angels come to the state of Texas that they should play BOTH the Rangers and Astros back-to-back.

C.J. Wilson turns the clock back in dominating Mariners in 2-0 victory.

When the Angels signed C.J. Wilson in the winter of 2011 they thought they were getting a pitcher who was going into his prime as Wilson was coming off back-to-back 15 + win seasons with an ERA under 3.20.  In 3 years with the Halos, Wilson has won at least 13 games each season, but his ERA has been closer to 4.00 (3.82) including last season’s implosion which saw Wilson’s ERA...
