Boxscore Breakdown #127: The slipper fits, again – Angels 2, Tigers 0

Everyone’s favorite Cinderella starting pitcher is back, fully shod in his glass slippers. The pumpkin form of Matt Shoemaker got shipped down to Triple-A about two weeks ago, but whilst there he discovered a way to turn the clock back before midnight and once again looked like the oft-dominant pitcher we saw last season. With a few other rotation members turning into pumpkins...

Do the Angels care? The Monkey investigates…

Ladies and gentlemen, I am here to investigate some very grievous charges that have been levied against the 2015 Angels. During their recent losing spree, very serious accusations of playing with no heart, aggravated gutlessness, premeditated lack of urgency and, worst of all, conspiracy to not care have been made by fans and players alike. We here at Monkey with a Halo take these...

How the Angels offense lost its balance

The Angels have a lot of problems right now, but one problem that has plagued them most of the season is that the Angels offense, well, it sucks. It is one of the most bizarre developments of the 2015 season considering that the Angels offense was one of the best in all of baseball last year. How did things go so wrong so fast? Simple. The Angels offense lost its balance. It seems...

Boxscore Breakdown #125: Fired up? – Angels 8, Tigers 7

The narrative from this game is that Jered Weaver “fired up” the Angels by pulling his typical redass act and screaming at everyone in the dugout after Mike Trout and Kole Calhoun had a miscommunication in the outfield. This display of rage and frustration allegedly inspired the team. Here are the things that happened after Jered’s allegedly inspirational tirade: The Angels...

Boxscore Breakdown #122: Walked all over – Blue Jays 9, Angels 2

What happens when you walk four batters in one inning? You set yourself up to get metaphorically walked all over the rest of the game. That’s what happened for Hector Santiago and the Angels who once again dug themselves an early hole that the offense was totally incapable of digging the team out of.

Sunday’s loss a microcosm of 2015 season for Orioles

Say it with me one time, “That’s so Orioles.” The Baltimore Orioles took one on the chin yesterday, losing 5-4 to the Los Angeles Angels on a walk-off single by David Murphy in the bottom of the 11th inning. The loss dropped them 3.0 games back of the Angels in the chase for the American League’s second Wild Card spot. It was a heart-breaking loss, and one that serves perfectly...

Boxscore Breakdown #109: O’s put 0’s on Halos – Orioles 5, Angels 0

The Angels did nothing, so I got nothing. Orioles 5, Angels 0 Run Expectancy Rundown There obviously wasn’t much in the form of Angels offense in this one, but there wasn’t even a lot of potential offense that got killed. The ninth inning David Murphy GIDP was really the only good scoring opportunity the Halos had. Nobody other than Albert Pujols and Kole Calhoun really did...

Aybar heaves bats in effort to wake up Angels' hitting - and it works

With the Los Angeles Angels having hit a bit of a rough patch offensively, the team was desperate for runs. They wound up scoring four on Wednesday, three of them coming in a furious ninth-inning rally and the other coming on a booming Kole Calhoun homer in the fourth. The homer ended a 17-inning scoreless streak and was probably met with a chorus of relieved sighing from the bench...

Dodgers 5, Mike Trout 3: Greinke Rolls Again

Another Zack Greinke start, another dominating performance, and another Dodger win. This time, he (mostly) shut down the Angels, leading to a final score of 5-3. The only damage against Greinke was caused by him playing with fire. The first three times he faced Kole Calhoun, he gave up three singles. Kole Calhoun was hitting in front of Mike Trout. Generally, allowing runners on...

Why the Angels need to buy cheap and not rent a new left fielder

To buy or rent? For the Angels at this coming trade deadline, there shouldn’t be much question. The combination of their bloated payroll and the increasingly thin free agent crop should have the Angels looking to find a left fielder of the present and future rather than one that can just pitch in for three months. The Angels need a left fielder, desperately. The pack of stooges...
