Angels plan to use Calhoun at cleanup for a while

Los Angeles Angels manager Mike Scioscia plugged Kole Calhoun behind Albert Pujols in his lineup Monday afternoon against the Toronto Blue Jays, and while that might seem surprising, it's something that won't be going away anytime soon. A few weeks back, Scioscia put Calhoun at the #4 spot when Pujols was dealing with a minor injury. This time around, he told Jeff Fletcher of the...

Boxscore Breakdown #23: The catch is there is no catch – Giants 3, Angels 2

The Angels have a catching problem. I mean that in two ways. For one, their catcher just isn’t performing. For reasons I don’t think anyone understands, Chris Iannetta has completely forgotten how to hit. He is just a disaster at the plate right now. The second way is that Iannetta now apparently literally can’t catch. He had a passed ball that set up one Giants run and allowed...
