Boxscore Breakdown #124: Staying “hot” – Angels 4, Red Sox 3

The Angels win again and stay “hot.” Hooray! Hooray? Hooray, right? How a team wins shouldn’t matter so much as the fact that they do win, but this Angels team is not winning pretty right now. In their last seven wins, they’ve only won by more than two runs once and been out-hit three times. There is a lot of luck involved here. That portends poorly for after this series...

A different solution to Josh Hamilton’s slump

Josh Hamilton is broken (again) and this time it isn’t so clear that there is an easy way to fix him. Scioscia’s already tried everything in his bag of tricks which pretty much just consists of “mental days off” and a whole lot of crossing his fingers. Sure, Don Baylor has and will continue to spend time with him to try and unlock something within Josh, but this is nothing...

Series Preview: Angels vs. Red Sox vs. The Best

Gosh, this is awkward. The Angels are now officially the best team in baseball. They might also temporarily be the best team in baseball, which is a problem, but a good kind of problem. For the last few years, the Angels have been playing under the pressure of huge expectations and mostly crumbling underneath them. This year, however, they haven’t had those same expectations...

Mike Scioscia: Josh Hamilton not the same player he was with Rangers

Mike Scioscia isn’t exactly thrilled with the type of production — or lack thereof — he’s received from Josh Hamilton. Hamilton is only hitting .216 with a .630 OPS since the All-Star break and went 1-for-5 with 4 strikeouts Friday against the Rangers. That prompted Scioscia to say Saturday that Hamilton isn’t the player he […]

Monkeying aroung with the dog days of summer

Is this post being written because I couldn’t think of a better, more meaty topic for today? Or is it being written as a thinly veiled excuse to use the above photo of a monkey riding a dog? Does it really matter? No, the answer to one of those questions, maybe even all of those questions is “no.” Whatever, let’s monkey around: I touched on this yesterday, but I want to...

What’s wrong with the Angels lineup? Everything

There is a lot wrong with the Angels lineup right now, one big inning last night aside. And by “a lot” what I really mean is “everything.” That the offense is struggling should come as no surprise, but the fact that the offense is broken in just about every way possible is hard to fathom. What makes it so hard to grok is that the Angels had the best offense in baseball...

Freeway Series Game 1 notebook: Josh Hamilton's toe tap batting stance

LOS ANGELES -- To the guy who once hit four home runs in a game, three home runs in seven games wouldn't be considered a power surge. But for a slugger that struggled throughout last season and through much of this to return to his old form, it's a trend in the right direction. Josh Hamilton decided to change his batting stance during last week's series in Tampa Bay,...
