Boxscore Breakdown #162: Next – Mariners 4, Angels 1

It’s all over, folks. The regular season is done and the Angels are moving on to the next challenge. Sure, they ended the regular season with a bit of a whimper after getting swept by the Mariners, but that isn’t really irrelevant. Get worked up about momentum if you want, but the Halos now have three days to rest up, get everyone healthy, line up their roster and get to a confident...

After the game, he claimed it came from his shoulder feeling healthy and returning to more of a three-quarters arm slot. This isn’t the first time he’s alluded...

Boxscore Breakdown #153: Salt Lake Bees of Anaheim – Mariners 3, Angels 1

There’s nothing like some crucial September baseball games with playoff implications. That is unless you’ve already clinched your playoff spot and don’t care anymore. In that case, you run out the lineup and starting pitcher for your Triple-A team. It wasn’t exactly high drama and I suspect a lot of Angels fans took the night off as well, but we almost got ourselves a nice...

But that is not what this post is about. I'll leave such tool worship to the scouts and prospect writers who are good at what they do. Instead this post is...

At the same time, it seems certain they will continue to be active in the trade market the next few weeks. General manager Kevin...
