Is there any help on the way?

Tony Campana, John Buck, J. B. Shuck, Matt Long, Fernando Salas, Luis Jimenez, Ryan Wheeler, Michael Roth, Cam Bedrosian and Drew Rucisnki.  No, that’s not the Angels top prospect list.  No, those aren’t their trade commodities.  Those are the list of players that have a reasonable shot at being promoted come September.  But before that let’s just get a rundown on what...

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...

Looking at the Angels bench permutations

There isn't a whole lot of intrigue in Angels camp this year. The lineup, the rotation and most of the bullpen spots are pretty much already spoken for. Really the only unsettled part of the roster is the bench. Unlike past years, the Angels actually have a good kind of bench problem in that they have a number of players that they'd like to carry, but not enough spots as opposed...
