Report: Angels would have interest in Trevor Plouffe

After the Twins won the posting for Korean first baseman Byung Ho Park, we wondered how the Twins would rectify their potential logjam at the corner infield and outfield positions. While no solution has even been broached yet, and hell, won’t be broached until the Twins actually sign Park, one possibility was the trade of third baseman Trevor Plouffe. And if Plouffe is put on...

Angels Extend No Qualifying Offers… Again

Let’s jump back in time a year. The Angels began the 2014/2015 offseason in a good place. The ALDS sweep was disappointing, but they had still just won an MLB-best 98 wins, owned the league’s best offense, and were losing no regulars to free agency. Some patchwork was needed here and there on account of Tyler Skaggs’ elbow injury and lingering skepticism about the future...

Series Preview: Angels vs. Rangers vs. Last Chance Blueprint

158 games down, four to go, and I am totally unprepared for the craziness that awaits us fans this weekend. Like most of you, I had given up on the idea of the playoffs in August…Then September happened. Then the Astros faltered. Then the Angels made up a bunch of ground on the Rangers.

Do the Angels have enough steam to make the playoffs?

In the most compelling playoff race going on right now, the AL West and wild card could go a number of directions. As of the completion of Tuesday's games, the Texas Rangers are leading the AL West over the Los Angeles Angels by two games and the Houston Astros by 2.5 games. In the AL wild card race, the New York Yankees have a commanding three game lead for the first spot, but...

Angels' Smith confident he'll conquer 'cranky' ankle and return soon

The recent losses of both closer Huston Street and setup man Joe Smith came at a bad time for the Los Angeles Angels, though one of the two might be coming back sooner than expected. While Street's groin strain (called 'devastating' by teammate Mike Trout) will likely keep him out for the rest of the season, Smith told's Alden Gonzalez on Monday that he's progressing quickly...

Boxscore Breakdown #154: The Catch 2.0 – Angels 3, Mariners 2

My goodness. Just when you think Mike Trout has demonstrated everything his preternatural baseball talents make him capable of, he goes and does something like this: The thing that I find most remarkable about Trout’s season-saving snag, among the many, many remarkable things about it, is that he made it look so damned easy. As though clearing the centerfield wall with more...

Let’s Watch an Improbable Astros Comeback

The Nationals aren’t mathematically dead, and there are several reasons for why they’re so far behind the Mets, but if you want to say the Nationals’ season died one day, you could point to the game they lost to the Mets after leading 7-1. Here’s that win expectancy graph, and you can see that, for Washington, it topped out at 99.2%. That game was absolutely devastating....

Series Takeaways: Good Grief

One strike. One damn strike. MLB teams, on average, will win 95% of the time when holding any kind of lead into the ninth inning. This was as true in 1946 as it is today. With a three-run lead in the ninth, specifically, those odds jump up to about 97.5%. And with a three-run lead, two outs, and nobody on base, the typical MLB club will win 99.7% of the time. Those odds were probably...
