Boxscore Breakdown #91: Double your pleasure – Angels 11, Red Sox 1

Thank you, police helicopter! The Angels managed to dry out the field at the Big A in time to get this doubleheader started only to flood the field with runs. After some slugging production in the first two games since the break, the Halos poured it on like they did before the break and now seem to have fully recaptured the momentum they had before the layoff that so many thought...

Angels Second Half Questions

The Angels entered the second half of the season with a slim lead over Houston for first place in a surprisingly mediocre, yet competitive,  AL West. It is a bit of a shock in itself that the Angels are even in first place at all, given that until their 7-2 road trip before the All-Star break they hovered around five games back behind the Astros for much of the season. Yet here...

Boxscore Breakdown #88: Little League – Angels 10, Mariners 3

I took my six-year old and her friend from her T-ball team to this game in an effort to show them what a real baseball game was like. The Mariners apparently didn’t get the memo because a Little League game broke out with the Mariners throwing and kicking the ball all over the place. Now my daughter thinks she can play for the Mariners, which probably isn’t that far from the...

Boxscore Breakdown #80: Bigger in Texas – Angels 8, Rangers 2

Everything is bigger in Texas, even the Angels offense. They hadn’t scored more than four runs in a game since June 19th, then they go and double that up in one game. If I didn’t know better, I’d say they were motivated by the presence of a former teammate or maybe the absence of a certain executive. Or maybe baseball is just weird and this was a random coincidence. Angels...

Should the Angels fire Don Baylor?

Having only read the title, I know that many of you have already responded with an emphatic, “YES” to the question the title posed. Such is the stance of most Angels fans when it comes to whichever portion of the roster is struggling. If the rotation stinks, fire the pitching coach. If the bullpen struggles, fire the pitching coach. If the lineup isn’t hitting, fire the hitting...
