2014 Fantasy Baseball: Third Tier AL Starting Pitchers

The final tier of starting pitchers is usually reserved for the scrubs of the world, but when you look at the table for the aggregate tier one, tier two, and tier three guys you will see that the tier three guys actually had more starts and more innings than the tier two guys. This would seem be to counterintuitive because pitchers that perform worse (as seen by their FRA) would...

Boxscore Breakdown Game #11: No More Drama, Please – Mets 7, Angels 6

So much drama in this game coming on the heels of the extra innings affair the night before. I need a break. Run Expectancy Rundown Raul Ibanez obviously had the biggest hit of the night and Collin Cowgill went out of his way to make sure I looked bad for deriding his choice as the right-handed half of the lead-off platoon. Howie Kendrick just plain stunk. The Angels got wrecked...

Angels Baseball Week 1 Review

After 1 week of regular season games, the Los Angeles Angels are 2-4. The Angels were swept by the Seattle Mariners at home in the Opening Series of 2014, losing all three games by a total score of 26-8. Pitching and hitting with runners in scoring position (RISP) are what plagued the Angels against the Mariners. The Angels pitching staff combined for an 8.33 ERA allowing 25 earned...

Angels off to a rocky start after being swept by Mariners

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Maybe it's a relief to the Angels that they’re leaving town. Home was no comfort. The first three games of the season were a washout, a bad dream they'd like to forget. Give them a mulligan. The Angels were swept by the Seattle Mariners, losing 8-2 Wednesday night at Angel Stadium and dropping to 0-3 -- the first time they've been swept in a season...

Same ol’ Los Angeles Angels?

With the MLB regular season here, this is the time of year where literally every team has a chance and hope of tremendous year. The Los Angeles Angels came into the past two seasons with the highest of hopes and expectations and those quickly evaporated.   Jered Weaver didn’t have his best outing to open the season but left things close, which the bullpen was unable to do after...

Angels' bullpen falters late in loss to Mariners

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Here is one undeniable truth about the Angels: Mike Trout is going to be a pleasure to watch this season. It's too early to know what to think about the rest of the team, but avoiding a start like the past two seasons will be critical. The Angels' primary problem last season was finding a reliable bullpen to keep games close. One game into 2014, it'...

Jered Weaver out to prove he’s still an ace

From Alden Gonzalez of The label “ace” is about much more than simply placing first in a rotation of five men. Opening Day starters carry the responsibility of leading a staff, of wanting the ball, of being that well-known rock and of coming through when he is needed the most. So, it’s fitting that nobody in Angels history has done this more than Jered Weaver. When...

Skaggs Helps to Bring Excitement Back to 2014 Rotation

At this time last year, Angel fans were hopeful that an elite offense could mask the obvious deficiencies of the starting rotation.  Jered Weaver, CJ Wilson and Jason Vargas seemed to make up a pretty potent top 3, but there were concerns that stemmed from the newcomers that would make up the 4th and 5th spots in the rotation.  It was as if the additions of Joe Blanton and Tommy...

The four horsemen of the Los Angeles Angels

When we came up with this "four horsemen" series, it was really just meant as a clever framing device to talk about the four key players on each team and kept with out incremental counting gimmick (two weaknesses, three questions, you get it). However, with the Angels, the reference to the four horsemen of the apocalypse is remarkably apt and not because the franchise is...
