Los Angeles Angels Top 10 Prospects

The Los Angeles Angels have one of the worst farm systems in baseball. None of the prospects on this list project as All-Stars or even good Major League players. Cowart, Lindsey, and Cron have the potential to become solid regulars. The pitchers on this list all have high ceilings, but are very raw. Given the state of the Angels’ payroll and farm system, it is imperative that the...

David Freese trade thoughts..

By Greg Bearringer, AngelsWin.com Columnist - 1) David Freese might as well wear a sign that says "average third baseman" around his neck, because I think that's probably what the Angels are expecting out of him next season. He is probably better that (since he has pretty good plate discipline), but a back injury might just eat into his playing time over the next two...

Some offseason points to consider

By Jonathan Northrop, AngelsWin.com Feature Writer -  I'm starting to wonder whether this will be the radical offseason some predict, or if it will be moderately conservative. Assuming a fair amount of positive regression to key players next year (especially Pujols and Hamilton), the Angels might just make a few minor to moderate moves to fill gaps and upgrade here and...

FIXING THE ANGELS IN A FEW EASY STEPS

By Jonathan Northrop, AngelsWin.com Columnist -  OK, “easy” is an exaggeration and the type of thing a naïve armchair GM would say, but what I really mean is do-able. It is my belief that the team isn’t that far from being a contending 90+ win team in 2014, and for a few years to come. Given the utter disappointment that is 2013, it is easy to think that the team needs...

Monkeying Around: Shuck, hypocrisy and anti-depressants

Time for The Monkey to monkey around with some half-baked ideas and thoughts that have somehow managed to not clear the already low bar I have for feature post material: -I can't decide whether to hate myself for the hypocrisy or the schadenfreude on this, but I am really torn over this Biogenesis scandal. On one hand, I think MLB is wildly overstepping their bounds by engaging...

Angels Trade Candidate: Prospects

Thanks a lot, Angels. Here I am doing a weekly series on which players on your MLB roster you should trade at the deadline since you are so obviously going to be a seller and you have to go and rattle off a winning streak to put yourselves within striking distance of .500 and spitting distance of the Wild Card race. Now I don't know if the Halos are going to be buyers or...

2013 LA Angels prospect movers and shakers

Every year I like to publish one article which focuses on the predictions of your Angel Minor Leaguers.  Last year, we successfully predicted Kaleb Cowart’s, Kole Calhoun’s, Donn Roach’s and Eswarlin Jimenez’s dominant 2012 performance.  Conversely, I didn’t think hitters in A-ball would ever touch Austin Wood, and to be fair they didn’t.  Still, his lack of control...
