Red Sox to reportedly target Pablo Sandoval in offseason

Now that the San Francisco Giants have cinched their third World Series win in five years, we can all get on to the important business of breaking down Major League Baseball’s offseason. And now that he has helped the Giants win that World Series, third baseman Pablo Sandoval could be on his way out of San Francisco. Rumors have persisted for months that the Boston Red Sox...

The Monkey’s plans for the Angels offseason

Each offseason since 2009, I have written this column, detailing my plan for what the Angels should do to improve the roster. Each offseason since 2009, the Angels have been blatantly ignoring my plan and they haven’t won a single playoff game in that time. Coincidence? I think not! Fine, if that’s really how you want to play it, Angels, then you have given me no other choice...

Angels on the free agency and trade block

The offseason draws nigh. As soon as the Royals finish fulfilling their manifest destiny, the Angels will be free to go about fine tuning their roster for another playoff run next year. However, before they can do that, they need to take care of some housekeeping. No, I’m not talking about sweeping all the rat turds out of the bowels of Angel Stadium (though they should probably...

Questioning David Freese’s 2014 season

Today, I am starting a new series for the offseason because I clearly don’t do enough offseason series (i.e. top prospects, player projections, free agency preview). This series will functionally be a season in review for each player, but I’m not going to bother with all the basic info. You watch the Angels, you know this stuff already. Instead, I’ll be looking back at some...

Boxscore Breakdown #155: Weaver Believer – Angels 8, Rangers 5

Weaver went and did it again. He pitched well and did so with that little extra notch of velocity. After his previous start, I thought it might’ve been a fluke, but he was able to repeat and sustain the change in this one. After the game, he claimed it came from his shoulder feeling healthy and returning to more of a three-quarters arm slot. This isn’t the first time he’s alluded...

Confidence the key for Grichuk’s success this time in St. Louis

Randal Grichuk ‘s first two stints in the Major Leagues weren’t exactly what he envisioned they’d be.

Projecting the Angels playoff roster

Now that we are well past the point of worrying about jinxing things (if the Angels now lose their next 19 games, I apologize), it is time we start talking about what the Angels playoff roster is going to look like. The Halos have had a remarkably stable lineup and pitching staff the last few months, especially by Scioscia standards, but there are some things they need to sort out...

Well, it wasn’t pretty and more difficult than it really needed to be, but the Angels are back in the win column and back on track for their smooth ride to the AL West crown. The offense showed some life, too. The poor Santiago start was less than ideal, but after getting swept by the Astros, this is a real step forward.

Daily DraftKings Picks: Monday, Aug 18

Welcome back to another week of our Daily DraftKings Picks! We only have about six weeks of baseball left, so it’s time to make our picks count. I didn’t get a chance to do that last Friday as I only entered one $2 contest on the day (I knew I wouldn’t be able to update my lineups before gametime) which ended up being a smart decision. Devin Mesoraco didn’t get the start...
