Series Takeaways: The Art of the Ugly Win

I think I’ve finally given up trying to figure out what this team is doing. Far as I can tell, there are three things about this year’s Angels we know for certain: the offense is bad once you get past Pujols, the base-running is bad all over, and Johnny Giavotella’s defense is atrocious. Everything else is somewhere in the middle, often with flashes of good/great dampered...

Do the Angels care? The Monkey investigates…

Ladies and gentlemen, I am here to investigate some very grievous charges that have been levied against the 2015 Angels. During their recent losing spree, very serious accusations of playing with no heart, aggravated gutlessness, premeditated lack of urgency and, worst of all, conspiracy to not care have been made by fans and players alike. We here at Monkey with a Halo take these...

I was tuning in because of the pitcher, but in the seventh inning, I found myself thinking about the hitter. It was in the top of the seventh that Verlander faced Mike Trout for what would be the last time, and I was reminded of something Sam Miller pointed out a couple...

How the Angels offense lost its balance

The Angels have a lot of problems right now, but one problem that has plagued them most of the season is that the Angels offense, well, it sucks. It is one of the most bizarre developments of the 2015 season considering that the Angels offense was one of the best in all of baseball last year. How did things go so wrong so fast? Simple. The Angels offense lost its balance. It seems...

Weaver denies screaming at Trout, sparks Angels to snap skid

DETROIT — Jered Weaver says he wasn't screaming at Mike Trout. It was just a play by the AL MVP that set him off on a tirade directed at himself and his teammates as they threatened to slump out of the AL wild-card race. Whatever the cause, the Angels ended a four-game losing streak by beating the Detroit Tigers 8-7 on Tuesday night. ''This was a huge win for us,'' Weaver said...

Series Takeaways: The Hall of Fame Weekend Massacre

If this weekend made one thing abundantly clear, it’s that no team in baseball was more in need of a day off than the Angels. The club went into the weekend having played 14 days in a row and in 23 of the last 24 overall. Every other AL team but the Twins had at least two days rest in that span, and Minnesota’s day off mercifully came midway through their stretch. The only contending...

We touched on the Mike Trout and Bryce Harper conundrum that Grey and I discussed last week, the...
