The best defensive plays for the week ending July 29th

We’re seemingly seeing different players pop up on this list every week, and I think that’s a testament to just how good the players in this league are getting at fielding their positions. No longer do we have just one or two great defensive players per position – there are quite a few. Also, the increased amount of defensive shifts are almost killing the idea of the web gem...

Angels figure it out by the sixth inning to beat Tigers, 2-1

EY MOMENT: After appearing to be mystified by left-hander Drew Smyly in the first five innings, the Angels broke through in the sixth. Kole Calhoun doubled to score the tying run and Efren Navarro, playing after Josh Hamilton left with an injury, grounded a two-out single up the middle to put the Angels ahead, 2-1. AT THE PLATE: The Angels scored enough to win, but Thursday night...

Smyly's 11 strikeouts not enough to beat Angels

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Efren Navarro and Kole Calhoun drove in runs in the sixth inning, and the Los Angeles Angels overcame Drew Smyly's early dominance for a 2-1 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Friday night.

Boxscore Breakdown #101: Striking out on Singles Night – Tigers 6, Angels 4

It was Singles Night at the Big A last night and the Angels struck out… a lot. I’ll be honest, I’ve been waiting all month to make a stupid pun about Singles Night. It felt good. Really, really good. What didn’t feel good was this game. The Angels have now lost three of four and all against division leaders. It isn’t any reason for panic considering the run the Angels were...

VIDEO: Austin Jackson Robs Kole Calhoun of Extra Bases With Great Leaping Grab

Austin Jackson has been the Detroit Tigers’ spark plug on offense since moving to the leadoff spot. In Thursday night’s series opener against the Angels, Jackson got it done with the glove too. Detroit led 5-3 in the bottom of the seventh when Kole Calhoun lifted a drive to deep center. Jackson raced back to the track, then leaped at the wall to nab Calhoun’s blast, taking...

Boxscore Breakdown #100: As good as a hit – Angels 3, Orioles 2

Remember when you were a kid playing Little League and your coach would tell you that a walk was as good as a hit? And remember how you shrugged that off and swung anyway because hitting the ball was more fun? Yeah, you shouldn’t have done that. Chris Iannetta didn’t do that. Kole Calhoun didn’t do that and the net result was a win for the Angels that required no actual use...

Two-run eighth inning gives Los Angeles Angels 3-2 victory over Orioles

The Angels had gone 21-5 prior to a three-game series with the Baltimore Orioles that began Monday. The confidence level of the team was sky high. But the Orioles took the first two games of the series. No problem. The Angels — after seven innings of frustration — scored two runs in the bottom of the eighth inning off relievers Tommy Hunter and Brian Matusz to defeat the Orioles...

Angels settle for big walk in win vs. Orioles

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- The Angels couldn't get the big hit when they needed it Wednesday night, so they settled for the big walk. Two of them, in fact. They were patient when they needed to be, and it paid off. It allowed them to beat the Baltimore Orioles 3-2 at Angel Stadium and salvage the third game of the series after losing the first two.

Boxscore Breakdown #99: Good is bad – Orioles 4, Angels 2

The home series winning streak comes to an end but at least it came to an end against a worthy team. The Orioles lead their division and sport an excellent road record. If there was any team that was going to end the streak, Baltimore was as good as any. The problem, in general, is that Baltimore is good and the Halos haven’t been doing so well against “good” teams. Out of...

The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim have some serious Magic Working Right now

[Box Score] [Seattle Times] [OC Register Angels Blog] The Angels – if you watch them each day – they’re that team this year that is high on character. That team that never seems to be out of a game. They are a gritty, grimy bunch (not without their fine items) that just seems to hang around and never actually be dead. Today they did it again. Another day in which Mike Trout...

Boxscore Breakdown #96: Reverse course – Mariners 3, Angels 2

The Angels and Mariners must be trying to make up for all that lost time over the break, playing the equivalent of three-plus games in the course of two nights. Anaheim was nice enough to let Seattle win 3-2 in extras this time though. Run Expectancy Rundown Someone really needs to tell the Angel bats that the break is over.

MLB's most underpaid players

We all believe we do not get paid enough to do our job. That’s just human nature. We have gone over the most overpaid players in the MLB in a previous article. We now wanted to take a look at the other side of the fence. The guys who should be getting more commas in their paychecks. The league minimum in the Bigs is $500,000. I would be happy sitting on that kind of cash, however...

Time for the All-Star break, just in time to force the red-hot Angels to cool their heels for a few days. Momentum is for suckers, right? Run Expectancy Rundown Oh, so many doubles. Doubles as far as the eye can see! OK, so six doubles, but that’s still a lot. Mike Trout was the only Angel to double up on doubles as he easily led the offensive attack.

The One where the Angels swallow Colby Lewis whole
