Angels Player Power Rankings – Week 13

This is the #13 edition of the Angels Player Power Rankings for this season. I think that means we are in for some bad luck, like maybe an errant warm-up throw hitting an opposing team’s superstar in the head. You know, something bizarre like that. RANK PLAYER COMMENTS 1Mike Trout - Trout has struck out at a nearly 30% clip this month, but he's also had a wRC+ just south...

Series Takeaways: Angels Move Into Second Place Despite Offensive Offense

The Angels came into this past weekend’s series with the Mariners five games behind the division leading Astros. They came out of the series winning two of three and four games back. Just. Keep. Winning. Series. Although, an extended winning streak would be nice. You know, the kind that puts the .500 mark well into the rearview mirror. Like, far enough into the distance that...

Boxscore Breakdown #76: Because someone had to – Angels 3, Mariners 2

The Angels won this game because someone had to. Whether someone deserved to remains to be seen. This game had everything for the fan who likes seeing inept baseball. Guys swinging and missing at 3-0 pitches. Guys swinging at 3-0 pitches and hitting into a double play. Multiple wild pitches. Multiple sacrifice bunts.  It was really like neither team wanted to win the game, but like...

Boxscore Breakdown #75: Knotted up – Angels 4, Mariners 2

The Angels knotted up their series with the Mariners and knotted up Robinson Cano‘s forehead thanks to an errant warm-up throw from Taylor Featherston. Yes, “errant” throw. Errant like a fox!

The Angels lineup quandary

The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim are going through a bit of an offensive dry spell this season. The team currently ranks 22nd in baseball in runs scored, 22nd in OPS, 22nd in wOBA (Weighted On Base Average), 23rd in OBP, and 16th in wRC+ (Weighted Runs Created Plus). With all the shuffling the lineup has gone through lately, is there a viable solution ahead or are the Angels just...

MWAHdcast – Episode 4: Strep Throat Edition

This podcast marches on. Through injury and sickness, we will continue. The same can’t really be said about Jered Weaver, but we can get to that later. MJ got enough over strep throat that we were able to sit down and hang out on the internet last night to chit chat about the Angels and things involving the Angels. We did not talk about Max Scherzer, therefore his wife owes us...

Keep Kole Calhoun out of the cleanup spot

I love sabermetrics and the way that they can be a filling for the game. Why is this happening? Here’s a number that explains why that is possibly happening. It’s a wonderful system. One of the championing ideas of sabermetrics is lineup optimization, and Sky Kalkman wrote this piece in 2009 that I still reference today in reference to lineup optimization. Sky breaks it down...

Boxscore Breakdown #61: Bobble this – Angels 5, Athletics 4

It should be Kole Calhoun Bobblehead Night every night. This whole move to the clean-up spot hasn’t been working out so great for Kole so far, but it worked like a charm last night as he basically won the game for the Halos twice. First, there was a go-ahead double that would’ve won the game if Fernando Salas hadn’t screwed it all up. Not to have his hard work undone, Kole...

Series Takeaways: Angels ding Rays early, then run into trouble

Ending an arduous stretch of 20 games in 20 days with one of the most frustrating (but deserved) losses of the season probably wasn’t what the Angels had in mind. Painful as Wednesday’s defeat was, though, it shouldn’t keep the team from spending at least some of its cross-country flight to New York feeling good about the last three weeks. An 11-9 record isn’t great, but...

Naming other Angels fan sections

The group of Angels fans responsible for “Toriitown,” “Matsuiland,” and “Hamiltown” were at it again in right field Tuesday night, introducing the world to Kole Calhoun’s “CalZone.” While I’m somewhat crestfallen they didn’t go with the “Kole Mine,” which seemed to have some great potential for future giveaways, I respect the coordination that went into...

Were the 2014 Angels a fluke?

As we near the end of May, it’s becoming increasingly apparent that how we perceive the Angels, and thus, how they’ve built their 2015 team has happened under false pretenses. Last year, the Angels had the best offense in baseball, anchored by MVP Mike Trout, former MVP’s Albert Pujols and Josh Hamilton, and fully supported by the tragically underrated Kole Calhoun, Chris Iannetta...
