Recapping the Angels at the Winter Meetings

This is probably the most Dipoto built roster you’ve ever seen. There’s depth, and by depth, I mean options. Lots and lots of options. Quite frankly, it’s confusing and hurts my head to even wrap around it, so I simply won’t. The best I can do is just lay them out for you. Starting Pitching: The Angels rotation for the majority of 2015 lines up as follows: Richards, Weaver...

Winter Meetings Day One: Matt Kemp Is Still A Dodger

Jon Lester is a Cub, unless he’s a Giant, or maybe he’s a Red Sox, unless he’s not. Maybe he’s a Yankee! Brandon Moss is with Cleveland, in a deal that initially seems weird for Oakland but seems less so when you remember how badly injured Moss’ hip seemed to be. Kendrys Morales wants “multiple years and substantial dollars,” and yes, I do also want a pony. The Angels...

C.J. Wilson Is On The Trading Block

The Los Angeles Angels are looking to improve their starting rotation, and they have told other teams that starting pitcher C.J. Wilson is on the block and is available in trade discussions according to a report by Jon Heyman of CBS Sports. If the Angels are able to move Wilson, then that would help cut payroll, and it would free up a rotation spot. Wilson had his worst year since...

Angels willing to trade C.J. Wilson in order to get rotation upgrade

Getty Images The Angels would like to sign Max Scherzer or James Shields, however to do so they would likely need to unload left hander C.J. Wilson first. Wilson, 34, is coming off a poor season with the Angels win which he was 13-10 with a 4.51 ERA and a 1.45 WHIP in 31 starts. The first two seasons of Wilson in Los Angeles went about as well as anyone could expect however last...

AngelsWin.com 2015 Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Primer Part IV

By Robert Cunningham, AngelsWin.com Columnist -  Starting Rotation Pitchers So defining and finding the ideal starting pitcher is probably a lot more difficult than a position player in some respects. Ideally that pitcher would be able to get both left-handed and right-handed hitters out equally well posting a good ERA- number in the process. Additionally they would field...

The Angels Without C.J. Wilson

I’m a fan. I’m guessing that if you’re reading this, you’re probably a fan too. What do fans do in November when games aren’t be played and your team isn’t exactly headlining over at MLBTR? You make inferences, educated guesses as to what next year’s team will look like. For the past three years, there have been few constants: Weaver the ace, Trout and Pujols, Aybar...

Questioning C.J. Wilson’s 2014 season

For all the shortcoming of the Angels rotation entering the season, the one guy they thought they could count on was C.J. Wilson. By the end of the year, Wilson couldn’t even be counted on to get out of the first inning of the ALDS. Just how bad was he? Wilson had a 4.51 ERA and 4.31 FIP. Neither of those marks are all that bad. They’re #4 or #5 starter numbers, but they aren’t...

MLB Game Picks - Monday: October 6, 2014

At least I was half right yesterday. I did predict the Royals finishing off their unbelievable sweep of the Angels. C.J. Wilson continued his string of post season clunkers and I just knew that he would have nothing to offer yesterday. It's sort of a shame to have a great season like the Angels did only to not win a single playoff game. But that's baseball and huzzahs to the Royals...

Second Guessing Angels-Royals ALDS Game 3: It’s all over

It’s all over, folks. Instead of the Angels fighting back to extend the series, the Royals stepped on their throats and put them out of their misery. To be fair, the Angels did fight back for like half an inning. Mike Trout homered to finally give the Angels a lead, but it didn’t last. C.J. Wilson took the mound and shortly thereafter vacated the mound in shame after surrendering...

Angels might be down, but the team isn't lacking confidence

The Angels are a confident, relaxed bunch. Even though they're in a daunting 0-2 hole in the ALDS with Game 3 Sunday here at Kaufmann Stadium. C.J. Wilson, who has a mountain of pressure on his shoulders as he starts for the Angels, even used a Happy Gilmore reference on Saturday. Angels manager Mike Scioscia was in such a light-hearded mood after he walked into the interview room...

Angels-Royals ALDS Game 2 Preview: The Shoe better fit

Ready or not, Matt Shoemaker has got a lot riding on his oblique tonight. Faced with the prospect of going down 0-2, heading out on the road with C.J. Wilson due up next in the rotation, Shoemaker basically has to prove that he’s completely healthy and completely able to save the Angels’ season. Shoe doesn’t even need to be terrific in this game. He just needs to be solid....

Boxscore Breakdown #157: PANIC! at the O.co – Athletics 8, Angels 4

The one thing, the ONE thing, that C.J. Wilson couldn’t do in this game was pitch horribly. He didn’t need to pitch well. He didn’t even need to be average. He just needed not to stink up the joint and look lost on the mound again. The Angels and their confidence about having playoff success just can’t afford it. Sure enough, Wilson went and pitched one of his worst games...

Wilson knocked out early, Angels lose 8-4 to A's

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) The Los Angeles Angels have spent weeks trying to figure out C.J. Wilson's up-and-down season. Just when he was on a nice roll again, everything fell apart - and he had almost an entire game to study video. Wilson got chased after retiring only two batters and walking four others, putting his AL West champion Angels in an early hole on the way to an 8-4 loss...
