Boxscore Breakdown #7: Deficit reduction – Angels 6, Rangers 3

After getting swept at home by the Royals, the Angels were on the precipice of falling into another deep deficit to start their season, a deficit that they’ve only been able to pay their way out once in the last few years. Then they went and had an early deficit to get out of in this game, which they did manage to do, ironically against a pitcher (stupidly) nicknamed “National...

Are the Angels getting overlooked?

If you talk to someone about the AL West this offseason, chances are they won’t mention the reigning division champs. There’s plenty of talk about the Mariners being a breakout team and a sexy World Series pick after just missing the playoffs in 2014. There’s a substantial bit of discussion about the Athletics following their drastic rebuild this offseason. Even the two Texas...

David Freese does not suck

David Freese does not suck. Some Angels fans seem to think he does, but he doesn’t. He’s not great. He may not even be good, but he does not, in fact, suck. For some reason, there has been a movement this offseason by a segment of Angels fans to rid the team of David Freese due to the misguided perception that he sucks. There were calls for him to be non-tendered back in December...

Everyone knows the Angels are looking to trade an infielder this winter. They are said to be open to trading David Freese.
