Reliever of the Year The reliever of the year goes to Joe Smith. The popular choice...

Angels Players Power Rankings – ALDS edition

In a very short-sighted move, I promised to do a power ranking at the end of each postseason series for Angels. That means I am now faced with the dubious task of ranking all the awfulness that emerged from the ALDS. Well, I’m not one to break a promise. Here we go. And, yes, someone did deserve to be ranked first. RANKPLAYERCOMMENTS 1Jered Weaver - Weaver gave the Angels...

Ten Most Essential Angels in October: #10-8

#10: CP Huston StreetIt was the June 18th trade for Huston Street that brought upon many questions from analysts and fans alike. The Angels had sent 4 of their top prospects in  SP Elliot Morris, SS Jose Rondon, 2B Taylor Lindsey, and most notably reliever R.J. Alvarez in exchange for Street and 22-year-old RP Trevor Gott. With such a huge price tag payed in the form of talented...

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...

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. This is probably a good time to mention that this post is being written while I watch CSI: Miami re-runs. Run Expectancy Rundown Kole Calhoun finally has a down game and look...

Closer Report, Week 19

It's way too quiet in here... I need a sniper to take out a closer or something. Maybe a team of trained Labrador assassins [Jay's Note: Everyone knows that Labradoodle assassins are better.], no one would expect that.  The "Seeing Eyes of Terror" would be their name. Speaking of which, I want to concentrate this week on the under-ratedness of Huston Street. The...

Tampa Bay Rays at Oakland Athletics series primer

The series streak is over. Plain and simple: The Tampa Bay Rays ran into an opponent that was sharper, more dangerous in the batter's box and more disciplined with its pitching this past weekend at Tropicana Field. That's the bottom line, and there's no reason to dress up the deed now done. Mike Scioscia's Los Angeles Angels own the majors' second-best record...

Once a liability, Angels' bullpen becomes strength

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Their rotation is in a state of uncertainty and their offense is digging itself out of a rut, but as the Angels approach the final two months of the regular season, they know this much: At the end of games, their bullpen will carry them. It didn't used to be that way, but it is now. What was once a liability is now a strength, one that just might be the key...

Evaluating the Huston Street trade three different ways

There are three schools of thought when it comes to assessing who “won” a trade: Waiting to judge a trade until years and years down the road when the careers of all the players involved have played out. This school of thought is baloney and usually espoused by fans on the side of the team that just got fleeced. It is only a valid evaluation model if the person doing to the...

Padres' moves are a reconstruction, not a fire sale

Huston Street is up the freeway in Anaheim, Chase Headley is in the Bronx and who knows what's next. Say this for the Padres' "Office of the General Manager": For a club without a GM, the office sure is doing a lot of general managing. The reaction is simple and quick: Hallelujah, it's about time this roster started getting rearranged. But let's get one...

Huston Street and Scioscia-proofing the bullpen

As you likely saw on Twitter or heard from your Angel fan friends or thought in your own brain, the reaction to the Angels’ acquisition of Huston Street has fallen somewhere between outrage and “meh.” Nobody has anything against Street himself. He’s good and there is nothing wrong with adding a quality reliever. One of the primary objections to the deal has been that it didn’t...
