2015 Player Projection: Joe Smith

What happened in 2014?Joe Smith was signed to a three-year, $15.75 million deal to provide something resembling stability in the Angels bullpen.

Handicapping the Angels bullpen competition

Up until about halfway through the 2014 season, the Angels had been the handicap of the ballclub. Dipoto went and fixed all that, but then he unfixed it a bit this offseason by letting some of his relievers go. The Angels bullpen still figures to be solid, but there are some roles and roster spots that need sorting out. Let’s go ahead and sort it. Huston StreetPro: He’s...

Five Breakout Angels Prospects for 2015

Much like the stock market, prospects are something teams invest in. Sometimes, you spend a lot of money (Roberto Baldoquin/Sean Newcomb) in hopes the payoff will be even greater. Other times, seeming penny-stocks can turn into somewhat of a jackpot (Matt Shoemaker/Kole Calhoun). These are the five players who I feel are going to “breakout” in 2015, and by that I mean their stock...

Considering a Huston Street extension

With their free agent shopping done, all their trades settled and just one arbitration case left to deal with, the Angels front office has turned their attention to talking contract extensions with some of their players. This isn’t nearly the sexy topic it was last season when they were talking extension with Mike Trout, but we’ll try and find a way to feign interest anyway...

Angels open to contract extensions with Chris Iannetta and Alden Gonzalez

The Angels have not ruled out signing catcher Chris Iannetta or closer Huston Street to extensions. If the Angels work out deals for either it may not happen until after Opening Day reports MLB’s Alden Gonzalez. Ianetta will earn $5.53 million in 2015 before hitting free agency.

The Angels bullpen power outage

Velocity is so overrated, or at least Jerry Dipoto seems to think so. While nobody was looking, the Angels GM has turned a bullpen full of power arms into a crop of soft tossers. Yep, the Angels bullpen doesn’t need your stinking 95 MPH fastballs, even if that is the core of just about every other bullpen in the league. Dipoto has been looking to find a combination of arms that...

Questioning Huston Street’s 2014 season

After years of searching, the Angels finally got their hands on a bona fide CloserTM. It only took a few years, half a dozen failed closers and a trade that gave away half of an already thin farm system, but Huston Street arrived mid-season to finally provide some end of game stability for the Halos. Did the Angels really even need Street? The thing about their long search for a...

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...

Not just a great name, Quackenbush is a force in the Padres' bullpen

Huston Street is long gone, some roles have changed, but one thing hasn't: Bud Black's Old MacDonald Bullpen continues to dominate. A Quack, Quack here. A Quack, Quack there. Sorry, but do you know how hard that is to resist? Of all the cool stories funneling out of the world-class Padres pen this summer - and yes, with a best-in-the-game 2.35 ERA, it is world-class - the tale of...

Mike Trout’s Other Slump

Several unusual things happened in Sunday afternoon’s game in Arlington between the Rangers and Angels. Firstly, Huston Street blew a save, his first of the year. Second, Mike Trout got a hit, his first in 18 at bats as he suffers through the second prolonged slump of his otherwise Troutishly MVP-calibre season. Thirdly, Trout was […]

Boxscore Breakdown #122: Detour – Rangers 3, Angels 2

Welp, Huston Street was bound to blow a save sooner or later. He had been nearly infallible since the trade, but in this one, the Street… was closed. Scioscia probably should’ve gone with… a detour.

Blowing up: Bad day for closers

When scanning boxscores every day, you'll see a blown save from a closer on most days, but not every day. This morning ... ugh.  Angels' closer Huston Street was bad, giving up four hits and two runs without retiring a batter in a painful loss to the Rangers. That was no fun for a team in the playoff hunt. Cardinals' closer Trevor Rosenthal was pretty bad as well, walking three...
