August trade targets for the Angels

Two weeks ago, Jerry Dipoto was perfectly fine with his rotation. No need to even be looking for a starter on the trade market, said Dipoto. Yep, everything is fine. Move along, folks. Nothing to see here. Return to your homes. Fast forward to today and OH MY GOD THE ANGELS REALLY NEED A STARTER. The sky is falling and the rotation is in great peril. Tyler Skaggs is out until 2016...

Jerry Dipoto says Angels building bullpen for long-term success

The Angels' waiver trade for Vinnie Pestano prior to Thursday's Freeway Series finale somewhat was a puzzling move. The bullpen has been the Halos' strength in recent games, so why the need for another arm, especially when they currently are without a left-handed and room on the roster is scant. General manager Jerry Dipoto says he's assembled his 'pen, but it...

The Process of JeDi Leadership

By Greg Bird, AngelsWin.com Staff Reporter - In his third season as GM Jerry DiPoto is a lame duck leader. He’s gone all in this year but it looks like the second best record in the major leagues will only be good enough for first runner up. At least that gets the Angels into the one-game wildcard playoff. While this is better than the previous few years it still is rather anti...

The Boring Angels…

After you read this article, you’ll cry foul and tell me the title is misleading.  It probably is, but the Angels as currently constructed look like they’ll be one of the more docile ball clubs in the Winter time and trade deadline.  Why?  Jerry Dipoto built this team, his team, not just for 2014, but beyond.  Consider this… At catcher, Hank Conger is locked up for another...

Reviewing Jerry Dipoto’s trade deadline history

The trade deadline draws nigh and Angels fans are quite eager to see what it has in store for the Angels. Already trigger-happy GM Jerry Dipoto has pulled off two deals to improve the Angels’ chances at breaking their post-season drought, but it would seem that more might be in store. Rumors abound of the Angels making just one more minor deal or going full-blown Colletti and making...

David Price will not be an Angel

The rumors have been fairly thick that the Tampa Bay Rays are ready to cash in on the value of their ace David Price. That may or may not be true. What we do know is that one highly touted suitor is no longer in the mix. The Los Angeles Angels have been considered a front runner for Price’s services as the July 31 traded deadline approaches. On Wednesday in the Los Angeles Times...

Angels not in David Price sweepstakes

Don't expect the red-hot Angels to make a play for Rays ace David Price. Los Angeles has one of the worst farm systems in baseball, so the team lacks the blue chip minor league prospects it would take to land the 2012 AL Cy Young winner. And GM Jerry Dipoto has no intention of trading away major league talent to get Price. “We’re not looking to move pieces from our major...

The Angels Should Extend GM Jerry Dipoto’s Contract Now

With the All-Star Break upon us, it’s time to look back and reflect on the season to date and the big questions facing the team. No question is as big for the future of this franchise than whether or not the Angels should extend Jerry Dipoto as the Angels General Manager. His contract is up at the end of this year, and so far there has been no indication whether the team will extend...

Angels at the break: Taking the AL West by storm

Through early-season struggles and bullpen issues, it was easy for the Los Angeles Angels to fly under the radar. But now as the Halos go into the All-Star Break just 1.5 games behind their AL West Division rivals in Oakland with the second-best record in baseball, the spotlight is theirs to steal from the A's.  Bottom-dweller no more, the resurgent Angels (57-37) are back in...

Angels trade Nick Maronde to Indians

The Angels continued tinkering with their bullpen, but this time they unloaded a left-handed reliever rather than added one, sending Nick Maronde to the Cleveland Indians for cash considerations. The deal was announced by general manager Jerry Dipoto. Maronde, 24, was on the Angels' opening-day roster and was used strictly as a situational reliever. He was sent to Triple-A Salt...

Dipoto: Angels formidable enough to catch up with Oakland

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- The Oakland Athletics were the team that truly brought the July 4th fireworks when they pulled off a blockbuster trade for two of the best starting pitchers in baseball Friday night. Early Saturday morning, their AL West Division rival in the Los Angeles Angels made a move themselves, though not nearly one as big or shrewd as the one made in Oakland. The Angels...

What do the Angels see in Jason Grilli?

Last week, Jerry Dipoto made the bold decision to trade Ernesto Frieri for Jason Grilli. I call it a bold decision because that’s the closest thing to a positive adjective I can come up with for that deal. Puzzling. Odd. Desperate. These all work much better but aren’t well-suited for polite company. Now, I am not normally concerned with someone taking offense to my criticism...

It isn’t even July and the Angels are already starting to be mentioned in trade rumors quite prominently. This has become par for the course for the Halos during the Arte Moreno era, especially in the last few years with Jerry Dipoto in charge and showing himself to be more than open to making deals both big and small during the season. This year is shaping up no differently as...
