FG on Fox: Kole Calhoun: The Surprise That Was Right in Front of Us

Kole Calhoun tore his way through the minor leagues. He hit the ground running in his 2013 debut. Why was there any surprise when he put up a top-ten season for an American League outfielder this year? There are reasons, or maybe we could say excuses, for Calhoun’s dismissal as a prospect. He never made […]

Questioning Kole Calhoun’s 2014 season

For most Angels fans, the only acceptable question about Kole Calhoun‘s 2014 season is, “how much do you love, Kole?” While he might be the most beloved Angel, non-Trout division, we are still going to poke and prod at his performance a bit. Try not to take it as a personal affront. Was Calhoun actually good as a leadoff hitter last year? If you judge your leadoff hitter...

The Wild Ride Continues

It was a busy day on Friday as I went to Warrensburg and got back just in time for the game. I sat down, turned on the tv, fired up the laptop and started right in. The remarks at the top were added Saturday afternoon. It's the most exciting week in Kansas City baseball history. It might be the most exciting week in baseball history. Even if the Royals do not win it all, this...

Second Guessing Angels-Royals ALDS Game 2: Nothing works

Ugh. I seriously don’t think I have it in me to get through this post, but I’m going to try. It’s hard to even know where to begin though. Once again, this was a game decided by the plays on the margins. Once again it felt like everything went right for the Royals and nothing went right for the Angels. It starts with Kole Calhoun making a misplay in the second inning that...

Ten Most Essential Angels in October: #3-1

#3: RF Kole Calhoun Kole Calhoun scored 90 runs in only 127 games during the 2014 regular season.  Let that sink in. Calhoun has been the Angels spark plug from the lead off spot all season. Batting in front of guys like Mike Trout and Albert Pujols, it was a key for Calhoun to reach base during the regular season as it will be the rest of this postseason if the...

Second Guessing Angels-Royals ALDS Game 1: #Soshted

Tonight, we saw the birth of a new era. The #Yosted era is dead. Long live the #Soshted era! What bloody trainwreck. In a game where there was barely any offense, Scioscia somehow managed to interject himself into every situation, and not in a good way. Sadly, this is exactly what I feared he might do. The ginger elephant in the corner for this game was Scioscia’s incessant sacrifice...

Boxscore Breakdown #161: The greater good – Mariners 2, Angels

Yes, the Angels lost this game, but that’s alright. The loss was meaningless to the Angels and it furthered the greater good. That would, of course, be ensuring that baseball fans across the land would get to watch meaningful games on the final day of the season. Because Mike Scioscia was gracious enough to turn things over to the second string in the seventh inning of a one-run...

Matt Shoemaker, extension candidate?

The Angels are in a really tight luxury tax situation for the next few years, because of that, I’ve suggested before that they probably need to pass on giving a contract extension to Kole Calhoun, despite him being an obvious candidate for such a deal. The potential savings just don’t justify the increase in his salary cap number and the impact that would have on the Angels’ spending...

Boxscore Breakdown #140: Not making it look easy – Angels 7, Twins 6

Another win for the Angels, but they once again made it look much harder than it had to be. Not to complain too much since they did win and did expand their lead in the AL West, but it sure would be nice to see them have a few nice, comfortable wins against these weak teams. With 22 games left, they are running out of time to convince us they are firing on all cylinders headed into...
