End of season post-mortem: Los Angeles Angels

The good news is that the Angels finally were able to ride the greatness of Mike Trout to a postseason berth and that Trout will surely take him the first of what should have been three AL MVPs. The bad news is that their league-best 98 wins only silenced their critics for a short time as the lasting memory of this Angels team will be them flaming out against the Royals in the ALDS...

The Angels may have blown their best chance at a World Series

The ALDS is over and so is the Angels season. The result and the way it all went down left every Angels fan feeling pretty depressed. Well, you might want to get a refill on your anti-depressant prescription because I have even more bad news for you: they probably just blew their best chance at a World Series for the next few years, too. This Angels team was a pretty great Angels...

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...

Angels bats go silent as Royals earn surprising sweep in ALDS

Well that wasn't what the Angels had envisioned. After winning 98 games in the regular season, the Angels season ended unceremoniously with a thud as they were swept by the surging Royals, 8-3, in the ALDS on Sunday at Kauffman Stadium. Angels players were leaning over the dugout railing as they watched the Royals dancing on the mound, celebrating their first postseason victory...

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...

Royals finish off sweep to stun Angels in ALDS

The Angels were a popular pick by many, myself included, to win the AL pennant this October. Well, their Postseason didn’t go quite as planned – the Royals smashed the Angels 8-3 on Sunday night, eliminating them from the playoffs without a single win. The game actually got off to a good start for the Angels, as Mike Trout picked up his first (and thusfar, only) career Postseason...

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...

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....

ALDS Game 1 Boxscore Breakdown: Margins – Royals 3, Angels 2

EDITOR’S NOTE: Baseball-Reference doesn’t have their usual boxscore for this game for some reason, so I couldn’t put the charts together. Sorry. If/when they fix it, I’ll come back and put the graphs in… probably. Well done, Angels, you now have no margin for error. In a series where people won’t stop talking about the poor rotation, the Halos just wasted a very good...

Finding the optimal ALDS opponent for the Angels

The Angels are going to the playoffs, this much we have known for weeks now. What we don’t know is who they are actually going to play, which is quite frustrating. Between the uncertainty in the AL playoff picture and the complexity of the Wild Card game, there is no telling who the Halos are going to draw in the ALDS. It could be one of four teams: Detroit Tigers, Kansas City...

Will the faltering rotation doom the Angels in the postseason?

Two weeks ago, the term “juggernaut” was being thrown around quite liberally in relation to the Angels as they had just finished steamrolling the A’s and running off a double-digit winning streak. Since then, the term used most frequently is “oh no.” The offense has slowed down to a more human pace, but that is fine. The bullpen has hit a few bumps in the road, which is...

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...

So Much HateThis is a story about something you can not possibly care about, but I feel like I've got to share it.Let's start this with the team I root for: the Oakland A's. They brought me back into baseball when I had given up the sport. I've been to the Coliseum more than any other yard. They made baseball fun for the first four months of the season, and misery...

Series Preview: Angels vs. Mariners vs. Clinch

This could be the clinchiest series the Angels ever clinched. They can clinch a playoff berth and the AL West title all in this series. They can also clinch at least a tie for their second-most wins in a season ever at 97. The only thing they can’t clinch is the best record in the AL, though they can push it pretty close. The downside of that is that this could be the last semi...
