The Leadoff Problem Persists For The Mets

The next Lenny Dykstra? Not quite… Question: What do Andres Torres, Collin Cowgill and Eric Young Jr. all have in common? Answer: Aside from all three having been released by the Mets, they each opened the season as the Mets official leadoff hitter in the last three years. It’s going on four years since Jose Reyes moved on, and the Mets still haven’t found someone to replace...

Questioning Collin Cowgill’s 2014 season

A dark horse to even make the Opening Day roster, Collin Cowgill ended up having a bloody good season. (Sorry, I couldn’t resist.) The Angels ended up counting on Cowgill more than they could have planned, but he did a fine job filling in. How in the world did Cowgill end up being worth more than two wins? Despite appearing in just 106 games and getting 293 plate appearances, Cowgill...

Dodgers’ Outfield Surplus May Pose An Opportunity For Mets

Ah, the post-season, or if you’re a Mets fan, another year of watching the new Fall TV Season on your big flat screen, while fans in other cities watch their teams compete in the playoffs. There is no question that the last five seasons have been painful to watch unfold. We saw a potent offense get dismantled, along with a slashed payroll to help two con artists disguised as real...

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...

Royals improbable run continues with improbable play

If there was ever a team to defy the baseball odds, it would be the 2014 Kansas City Royals. After 29 long years without any postseason baseball, the Royals have played a lot of it in a short amount of time - 34 innings in a span of 72 hours, to be exact. They outlasted the Angels in 11 innings in Game 2 of the American League Division Series, Friday night at Angel Stadium, becoming...

Second Guessing Angels-Royals ALDS Game 2: Nothing works

Ugh. I seriously don’t think I have it in me to get through this post, but I’m going to try. It’s hard to even know where to begin though. Once again, this was a game decided by the plays on the margins. Once again it felt like everything went right for the Royals and nothing went right for the Angels. It starts with Kole Calhoun making a misplay in the second inning that...

Boxscore Breakdown #147: Back in training – Angels 11, Astros 3

These games of late have really started to feel like Spring Training games for the Halos. After six innings, all the subs start coming in. By the end of the game, there is an entirely new lineup in the field and a pitcher you’ve never heard of on the mound. I guess this is the luxury you can afford when you are running away with the best record in baseball. Of course, it also...
