Report: Angels not expected to acquire pitching for playoff run

The Los Angeles Angels, as with all MLB teams, have a deadline of August 31 to have an added player be playoff-eligible. On September 1, roster’s can expand from 25 player’s to 40, but any player added after August 31 isn’t eligible for a team’s playoff roster. This is notable for two reasons. First, the Angels have a need for pitching after their ace Garrett Richards was...

Will the REAL Dustin Ackley Please Stand Up?

Another flash or is this the real Ack? Rarely do you see a player with a more crazy up and down, hot or not story as that of the Seattle Mariner’s Dustin Ackley. It’s crazy to think about but Ackley was taken 23 picks BEFORE the Angels selected Mike Trout. It kinda gets you right down there in your gut, doesn’t it?  Who’s name is more recognizable in baseball circles at...

Boxscore Breakdown #132: Well-oiled – Angels 6, Marlins 1

After a few weeks of scratching and scraping for runs, dealing with some bullpen hiccups and sorting through rotation uncertainty, the Angels once again seem to be playing like a well-oiled machine. The offense is hitting well again. The starting pitching (except for the currently empty Richards-vacated spot) has been strong the last few times through the rotation. The bullpen...

Michael Brantley: Stealth AL MVP Candidate

As we head down the season’s home stretch, the AL MVP race isn’t shaping up to be the neat, two-horse race it was in both 2012 and 2013. Miguel Cabrera hasn’t quite been Miguel Cabrera, and though he still could win the award, Mike Trout hasn’t exactly been Mike Trout. As occasionally happens when there […]

How the Angels won (08/27): Trout has another big night in win over Marlins

How the Angels Won: The Angels beat the team they were supposed to beat Wednesday night, with yet another strong performance by a key role player Wednesday night at Angel Stadium. A three-run third inning and an insurance run later was more than enough for Hector Santiago to pitch behind in the Angels' 6-1 win over the Marlins. Santiago (4-7), the tough-luck loser on so many...

Bud Selig: 'I'd be very, very happy' if Mike Trout becomes face of MLB

Bud Selig has played the villain, the victor and everything in between during his 22-year tenure as the commissioner of Major League Baseball.  Being reviled by fans might as well be written into the job description of the commissioners of all major sports leagues, but as Selig's term comes to an end, it's not difficult to remember all of the good that he did for baseball...

Why not Alex Gordon for American League MVP?

Even with his second half scuffles, many have already declared that this is the season that Mike Trout finally wins his long deserved American League Most Valuable Player Award. It’s hard to argue against it, as he continues to produce at an incredible rate in now his third full big league season. However, there are players not to be overlooked in this matter. One of those, perhaps...

Angels back alone atop AL West, Shoemaker handles Marlins

  While everybody else in the Los Angeles Angels' rotation has dealt with serious injuries and wild inconsistency this summer, Matt Shoemaker has been unshakable for two months. His teammates provided the rookie with far more support than he required in his latest milestone win. Mike Trout had an RBI double and Albert Pujols added a two-run single during Los Angeles' five...

How the Angels won 08/26: Shoemaker stellar in shutdown of Marlins

How the Angels won: After four innings, Mike Trout had three hits, one RBI, 10 total bases and two scored runs. He was having himself a big night and was leading the charge for an Angels offense that was trying to get back on track following a rough Monday night. Trout was aggressive on the basepaths, going first to third on an Albert Pujols single to shallow centerfield in the first...

Gregory Goes Ker-Planco

Here's what I didn't say in June, but could have, "With the promotion of George Springer and Gregory Polanco, Mike Trout and Mike Trout's father, Tim Salmon, should make room in their mini-van that's designed to look like a submarine because there's new top hitters in the major leagues of baseball.
