Miguel Sano: The Calm Before the Storm

It’s not often I’m enamored by talent anymore. That’s not to say that baseball isn’t flush with ascending and established players, but in an era derived upon furthering skills and development, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to separate the good from the great. For example, one player that parallels the above argument is Los Angeles Angels’ right fielder Kole Calhoun...

Angels' Calhoun has great answer to what he respects about hockey

Baseball brawls are always complicated, aren't they?Usually they all have some build up, some history, drama, back-and-forth, etc. before an actual brawl. In that sense, it's almost the exact opposite of hockey. Fights happen because it's part of the game, either to keep the other team/player in check, or just because you're mad -- which is one thing Kole Calhoun can get down with...

Nate Smith moving up Angels prospect list

Nate Smith is not going to be on many lists of top prospects in baseball. He doesn’t have the stuff that draws a lot of attention from scouts. No 95 MPH fastball here to light up the radar guns. In spite of this, Smith is now the Los Angeles Angels top pitching prospect and is certainly the closest to being available to help the big league club. The assumption could be made that...

The Anomalous Offensive Outcomes of the 2015 Season

A couple months ago, we featured an annual article that detailed the most extreme home runs of 2015. It’s always a fun post to write, and this year, I had the honor of putting it together. We always include hardest-hit, longest, shortest, highest, lowest, you name it — it’s a veritable smorgasbord of dingers, and everybody likes dingers. Now that we’re a couple months removed...

2016 Fantasy Baseball: Los Angeles Angels Team Preview

The Los Angeles Angels have arguably baseball’s best player. Most of the rest of their hitters could find playing time on their local minor league squad, however. There are a few Angels you’ll want to roster this year, but with Albert Pujols projected to miss the opening of the season due to foot surgery, this outfit isn’t as highly regarded as it once was.

Halo History: The Best Angels Outfield Ever

With Mike Trout entrenched in center field, Kole Calhoun in right, and a premium left fielder still lurking out there in free agency, Angel fans are not to be blamed for entertaining the thought that the Halo outfield corps of 2016 could be the best the franchise has ever assembled. If Arte Moreno ever decides this offseason to take the plunge on Justin Upton, Yoenis Cespedes,...

Three Angels file for arbitration, including Calhoun

The Los Angeles Angels are reluctant to spend exorbitant amounts of money on highly-priced free agents, but they will likely have to hand out pay raises to three of their most reliable players. Ahead of Tuesday's deadline, pitcher Garrett Richards (15-12 with a 3.65 ERA coming back from his knee injury in 2014), reliever Fernando Salas (72 appearances in 2015 as the club's most...

Angels look disappointing, yet intriguing

It was only a month or two ago, I had visions of Jason Heyward-Mike Trout-Kole Calhoun both in the outfield and top of the order.  I dreamt of a Kendrick reunion that would save us all from another season of Giavotella at second base.  I even kicked around the idea of Daniel Murphy at third base and an improved bullpen.  So yes, I am disappointed.  So is every other Angel fan...

What’s On the Angels Grocery List?

Left Field Embed from Getty Images The Los Angeles Angels are notorious for their outfield, primarily for one reason. Mike Trout is the best outfielder in Major League Baseball and Kole Calhoun is a great compliment to him in right field.  Left field is where the Angels fall off the map a bit, as their players out there are anything but dependable.  Efren Navorro isn’t...

2016 Los Angeles Angels Primer Part IX: Center Field and Right Field

Kole Calhoun wins Gold Glove Award

Kole Calhoun was awarded the AL Gold Glove for right field Tuesday afternoon, besting J.D. Martinez and Josh Reddick. Calhoun is the first Halo to win the defensive award since Erick Aybar took one home in 2011, and the first Angels outfielder to snag one since Torii Hunter in 2009.

The Worst Called Ball of the Season

The playoffs are over, and as balls and strikes go, the tournament wasn’t overly controversial. There were some misses, sure. There was that called strike against Ben Revere at nearly the worst possible time. That wasn’t great, and I’m sure there are some Blue Jays fans who are still fuming. Shortly before that, there was a similar called strike against Dioner Navarro. Rough...
