Do the Angels need a lefty in the bullpen? ☆

The Angels have been trying to find some left-handers to bolster their bullpen with for two years now. They traded Ervin Santana and got Brandon Sisk in return… but he needed Tommy John surgery. They also signed Sean Burnett that same offseason, but his elbow decided that it didn’t much care for Anaheim and has since gone on strike. They picked up Brian Moran in the Rule 5 draft...

The fallacy of the Angels’ lack of rotation depth

It’s odd.  When reading about the Angels pitching staff, or rotation more specifically, it comes with the caveat “lacks depth”.  I understand why the national media says this, their job isn’t to focus on the Angels specifically.  But it has been reprinted so many times now that I’m wondering why no one has bothered to correct it.  The Angels have depth, they have a...

Detroit Tigers Acquire Andrew Romine From Angels, Fill Shortstop Void

The Detroit Tigers acquired Andrew Romine from the Los Angeles Angels for left-handed pitcher Jose Alvarez on Friday, filling the hole left by Jose Iglesias. Romine is a career .250 batter with a .958 fielding percentage and a .1 career-WAR. Likely a depth move for the organization on the infield, the Tigers paid a pretty hefty price in Alvarez for a middle-infielder who has never...

Royals could be thorn in Tigers' side

I don’t believe the Cleveland Indians can make a run at the Detroit Tigers over the final 41 games of the season.
