Fantasy Waiver Wire: Week 3

Previous editions are here. Decent players are starting to show up on waiver wires after slow starts. Now is the time to scoop them up. I’ll start with this week’s big callup, though. Outfielders George Springer Unless your league has weekly transactions, it’s probably too late to pick up Springer. I do think he should be owned in all formats. While he will likely hurt your...

Angels reliever Joe Smith takes injury of Kole Calhoun tough

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- At this point, you could take your pick. Which member of the Angels bullpen would be the next to relinquish a lead? You could go down the list. By the numbers, it certainly was not to be Joe Smith. In an ineffective bullpen, he was an effective one. In six appearances, he allowed just three hits, eight strikeouts, no walks, and a 0.00 ERA. Yet, on Tuesday night...

Kole Calhoun To Miss Four To Six Weeks

Kole Calhoun will join fellow Angels outfielder Josh Hamilton on a lengthy DL stint, reports Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register (via Twitter). An ugly-looking ankle turn last night resulted in a bad ligament sprain that will put Calhoun on the shelf for four to six weeks, according to manager Mike Scioscia. Early in his second season of substantial MLB action at the age...

Angels place Kole Calhoun on the disabled list

Already down an outfielder following Josh Hamilton‘s thumb injury, the Angels have placed Kole Calhoun on the disabled list after he injured his ankle last night. Calhoun tweaked his ankle running to first base on an extra-inning ground out and had to be helped off the field.

Angels lose right fielder Kole Calhoun to ankle injury

With Kole Calhoun out, it is time to #FreeMattLong ☆

This spring, I accidentally started (or at least propelled) the #FreeMattLong movement on Twitter. It started off as a lark, but was somewhat legitimized as Long performed well all spring, even as he started facing stiffer competition. The premise was simply that Long was one of the under-the-radar prospects who did a lot of things pretty decently, but didn’t do any one thing well...

Kole Calhoun headed for DL after rolling ankle

Boxscore Breakdown Game #13: Jaso’d again – Athletics 3, Angels 2

I’m writing this whilst doubled over as I am still feeling the after-effects of that gut punch loss courtesy of John Jaso. Run Expectancy Rundown Albert Pujols and Kole Calhoun were the only two Angels that could solve the riddle that was Jesse Chavez. David Freese and Howie Kendrick did their usual no-show act while Mike Trout was very un-Trout-like. Jaso. It always has to be...

Jaso Pinch-Hit Homers A’s To Come From Behind Victory Over Halos

It was a night for the Southern California local guys wearing green and gold to shine for the A’s. Jesse Chavez, from Fontana, about a  45 minute drive from Anaheim, turned in another brilliant pitching performance, lasting seven innings of two run (one earned run) ball. Chavez allowed four hits and struck out nine Angels’ batters without allowing a walk. The only earned run...

Boxscore Breakdown Game #6: Quit pulling my Weave – Astros 7, Angels 4

We should’ve known better than to think the Angels could sweep the mighty Astros or have their ace (if that is still what you want to call him) actually pitch well against one of the worst lineups in baseball. Run Expectancy Rundown Kole Calhoun has really had some bad RE24 performances in this series. At the same time, I don’t know how much you can punish him when he saw 28...

Astros top Angels with the help of five home runs

A messy ninth inning didn’t put a damper on a five-home run day for the Astros. Some thought Scott Feldman was overpaid this winter. A reactionary might suggest now that he’s underpaid. The righthander became the first Astros pitcher to reach seven innings Sunday in a 7-4 win over the Angels, and he’s 2-0 to start the year. He allowed only one run, ending the Astros’ losing...

The Angels finally got their first win. Hooray! It was a win so sweet that the Angels clearly felt they needed to savor it, which is why the game took over three and a half bloody hours. No matter, the Halos finally have a notch in the win column and everyone can breathe slightly easier now.

The Monkey predicts the 2014 Angels season

Opening Day is here at last! That means I will once again force myself to make predictions for the Angel season. Why? I’m a glutton for punishment. Although, this is really more me punishing you because, if you have looked at any of my past predictions, you know how truly horrible I am at this. Granted, I don’t think anyone is very good at it, but I am just terrible. Screw it...

Kole Calhoun griding for roster spot with Angels

LOS ANGELES --€“ Angels outfielder Kole Calhoun is taking nothing for granted, which is probably a good thing. Calhoun is all but guaranteed to make the opening-day roster and will bat leadoff and play right field, but until manager Mike Scioscia tells him so, Calhoun is grinding.

Four players that are talented, but overshadowed on their teams

I don’t like the term “breakout campaign”.  When used in baseball terms it usually refers to a player that was already good and had already seen success at previous levels and now had the numbers to match the skill set.  Most of the time, these breakout players were already somewhat well regarded.  For example, in 2012, Mike Trout had a breakout season.  Never mind the...
