Angels Player Power Rankings – Week 4

As the Angels Player Power Rankings enter their fourth week, we still rank all the player 1 through 25, but it is getting harder and harder to justify actually having ten players in the top ten. So, you know, anytime any of you want to start hitting, that’d be super. RANK PLAYER COMMENTS 1Mike Trout - Trout had a big week with three steals and a .452 OBP, but everyone will...

Boxscore Breakdown #19: Too many mistakes – Rangers 5, Angels 4

Back when the Angels offense wasn’t hot garbage, they could erase a lot of mistakes by sheer volume of runs. Now that the offense stinks out loud, dropping a pop-up, booting a grounder, getting picked off, blowing a save and coughing up an insurance run are things they can no longer overcome. They certainly can’t when the do all of those things in the same game. Rangers 5,...

Boxscore Breakdown #16: One-hit wonder – Angels 2, Athletics 0

It was a one-hitter and a shutout for the Angels! The catch is that the Halos were the ones that got one-hit but also the ones that pitched the shutout. Yes, this juggernaut offense only mustered a single solitary hit against known pitching luminary Jesse Chavez. Fortunately for them, that one hit left the yard and none of the hits the A’s had did. A win is a win, I guess. Angels...

Boxscore Breakdown #14: Ain’t nuthin but a Johnny G thang – Angels 14, Athletics 1

It’s like this and like that and like and uh. It is also like Johnny Giavotella is actually pretty good. The reclamation project from the Royals had his coming out party last night against the A’s and might’ve helped finally jumpstart the Angels offense in the process. Ain’t nuthin but a Johnny G thang.

Angels beat A's with 3-run HRs by Giavotella, Calhoun

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) Johnny Giavotella hit a three-run shot for his first homer with the Angels after the inning was extended by a replay and the defending AL West champions so thoroughly roughed up the Athletics that Oakland first baseman Ike Davis pitched in Los Angeles' 14-1 victory Tuesday night.

Boxscore Breakdown #13: The Force does not awaken – Athletics 6, Angels 3

The Force did not awaken for the Angels on Star Wars night.  An early offensive outburst gave the Halos a new hope, but nothing really came of it. The offense continues to remain on the dark side. It is too early in the season to condemn the current roster, but the early returns for JeDi have to make him think that maybe these aren’t the droids he’s looking for. Save us, Mike...

Angels Player Power Rankings – Week 3

This post is entitled the Angels Player Power Rankings, which is ironic because of the word “power” being involved. The Angels offense appears to have had a full-on power outage. Not a brown out, but a total blackout. So, for this week, let’s just call this the Angels Player We Forgot to Pay Our Edison Bill Rankings. RANK PLAYER COMMENTS 1Mike Trout - Oh, how nice. It...

Offense Struggles Early, Mike Trout Takes Over as Angels Best Astros

HOUSTON: There wasn’t a whole lot of offense to go around for much of this game as we only had three total hits through the first four innings. But we did have a run. Kole Calhoun led off the fourth with a triple to deep center field, just out of the reach of Jake Marisnick. Mike Trout came up next and struck out on a 2-2 fastball high and in, and Albert Pujols walked on five pitches...

4/14 still no Calhoun Angels lineup

Kole Calhoun was healthy enough for a pinch-hit RBI single last night, but apparently isn’t healthy enough to play a full game, so he gets another night off.

4/13 deep in the heart of Texas Angels lineup

The Angels are in Texas for a series to help get themselves out of the AL West basement. They’ll have to do it without Kole Calhoun in the first game though as his calf is still bothering him.

Morales Clobbers Old Team with Three Hits, Moose and Salvy Go Yard En Route to a 6-4 Royals Victory

Remember the last time Kansas City won a series against the Angels on national television? Oh, right… It was six months ago in the ALDS. Though the stakes are not as high, it’s still fun to beat the best team in the AL from a year ago.   Through the first three innings, it almost looked as if Kansas City would finally lose their first ballgame of the season.

Boxscore Breakdown #4: Devil Magic – Royals 4, Angels 2

Yep, turns out that the Royals still have that devil magic working for them. The Angels cannot beat. It cannot be done.

Royals Swipe Right: Singles Find Home as KC Reaches 4-0

st year, the Royals "manufactured" runs. This season, they said that they wanted to hit for more power. Baseball experts all talked about how if Kansas City could only hit more home runs, it'd be a force in the playoff picture once again. Through four games, it's easy to see what they were saying. The Royals squeaked past the Angels of Anaheim 4-2 on Friday night, improving...

RECAP: Barry Zito's scoreless streak ends; A's beat Angels 13-10

Barry Zito's spotless spring ended when he gave up three home runs to the Los Angeles Angels in the third inning Tuesday, but the Oakland Athletics also had a big day at the plate in a 13-10 victory. Zito, trying a comeback after sitting out last season, had thrown 13 scoreless innings in Cactus League play before Collin Cowgill, Kole Calhoun and David Freese went deep for the Angels...

Predictions? I Got Your Predictions Right Here!

By Glen McKee, angelswin.com Junior Prognosticator -  One of my favorite parts of spring training is looking to the season ahead and seeing how many predictions I can make that will totally miss the mark.  It’s a hallowed tradition that ranks right up there with giving up on the season after a two-game skid in the second week of April.  There are as many different methods...

Why Wasn’t Kole Calhoun a Prospect?

In the grand scheme of things, evaluating a baseball player’s current ability isn’t that difficult. If you have a sampling of their statistics and have a chance to watch a handful of their games, a reasonably informed observer will come up with a pretty good estimate of the player’s current talent level. Figuring out how […]

2015 Player Projection: Kole Calhoun

In his first full season in the Majors, Kole Calhoun quickly cemented himself as a fixture atop the lineup. Does he still have room to grow into something more? What happened in 2014? Kole Calhoun’s 2014 season got off to a tentative start as he was not only a bit slow coming out the gate, but also still finding himself in something of a platoon situation early on. Then he went...
