What to watch for as Angels kick off 3-game set with A's

What to watch for in Oakland The Oakland A's and Los Angeles Angels haven't faced off since June. Back then, the Halos hadn't quite found the winning identity they now seem to possess, the bullpen was a mess and the A's looked like World Series contenders. Fast forward to today, when the two teams are the two best in baseball, with the Halos holding the 2.5 game edge...

The Angels Plan has Come Together

The Los Angeles Angels made a gigantic splash in free agency in the 2011-2012 offseason and it worked pretty good but just wasn’t enough to land a playoff spot. Let’s flashback to 2012 for a minute. The Angels went 89-73 after the acquisitions of Albert Pujols and C.J. Wilson. However, they fell short and it […]

Who Bat Flips After a Walk? David Ortiz Does

The Angels C.J. Wilson walked David Ortiz on a full count in the 1st inning with no men on base. The average ballplayer would simply toss his bat toward the unassuming bat boy and wiggle to his free base. David Ortiz is not your average ballplayer and therefore does what he pleases. He proceeded to give the most exuberant bat flip in the non-existent history of walk bat flips: David...

Series Preview: Angels vs. Red Sox vs. The Best

Gosh, this is awkward. The Angels are now officially the best team in baseball. They might also temporarily be the best team in baseball, which is a problem, but a good kind of problem. For the last few years, the Angels have been playing under the pressure of huge expectations and mostly crumbling underneath them. This year, however, they haven’t had those same expectations...

Mookie Betts Back In Red Sox Lineup For Series Opener Against Angels

Mookie Betts has been on a tear at Triple-A Pawtucket recently, and the Boston Red Sox rewarded that play on Monday by promoting the outfielder to the majors. He won’t waste any time getting back into the mix. Betts will be in the lineup on Monday night, hitting eighth and playing center field when the Red Sox begin a four-game series with the Los Angeles Angels at Fenway Park...

Red Sox Tickes 41% Below Average For Series Vs Angels

The Boston Red Sox have actually played some pretty decent baseball in the last couple weeks despite trading away almost their entire starting pitching rotation. But the Los Angeles Angels have also played well lately, and they’re next on the Red Sox schedule. The Angels are currently tied for the best record in all of baseball, thanks to one of the best offenses in the league...

Series Preview: Angels vs. Phillies vs. Fregosi

The Angels are (finally) going to honor Jim Fregosi this series. That’s great. However, I am not that old. I never saw Fregosi play so, I’m not all that invested in the when, where and how of honoring Fregosi. I realize he was the first real “star” the Angels ever had, but that’s just what I’ve been told, so my appreciation goes so far. I wanted to remedy that, so took...

Angels Manager Mike Scioscia retains faith in C.J. Wilson

The Angels scored five runs off Zack Greinke, the Dodgers' No. 2 starter, on Monday and three runs off Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw on Tuesday, but they had no answer for the riddle that has become Hyun-Jin Ryu on Thursday night. Ryu gave up two hits in seven shutout innings, striking out four and walking one, in a 7-0 victory before a sellout crowd of 44,561 in Angel Stadium...

Boxscore Breakdown #114: Off the beam – Dodgers 7, Angels 0

C.J. Wilson was challenged to get “back on the beam” in this game and he did, for like an inning or two. Wilson was able to make it through 5.2 innings, but he didn’t look particularly sharp. His velocity and stuff looked fine, but he just couldn’t #throwstrikes. It wasn’t even that C.J. got hit hard, he really didn’t save for the Uribe double, but he was constantly behind...

How the Angels lost (8/7): Wilson's struggles continue on the mound

How the Angels lost: It was a better start for struggling left-hander C.J. Wilson, but it still wasn't what it needed to be. Wilson's inability to get outs and the Angels' ice-cold bats led to a dismal showing against the Los Angeles Dodgers in the Freeway Series finale; as the Angels were shutout for the first time in 26 games in the 7-0 loss. "This is probably...

Boxscore Breakdown #109: Totally not hip – Rays 10, Angels 3

Yeah, so, it turns out that an inflexible hip wasn’t C.J. Wilson‘s problem after all. The Angels had been trying to pass off the return of C.J. Wilson as the equivalent of a big deadline acquisition, but instead, it only served to make them look foolish for not pursuing rotation help. Wilson was a mess, lasting just 1.1 innings and surrendering six runs before he got the hook...
