Look, we all know what happened in this game. We all know what happened in this series. We should all know that there is no cause for alarm, emphasis  on “should.” Not nearly enough Angels fans demonstrated that after this game as the panic from the fan base was palpable.

Well, that didn’t go well. Can we just pretend that game didn’t happen? Every year each team has a handful of those games where everything goes wrong and they get their butt kicked.

Angels fill outfield, add David Murphy & David DeJesus

The Angels have recently stormed back to take over the AL West lead, largely thanks to their offense, but outside of Mike Trout, the outfield has been a major issue. Collin Cowgill is on the 60 day DL and Matt Joyce is on the 7 day concussion DL, but the Angels may be happy about the second as he had produced just a 0.2 WAR this year. Of others Daniel Robertson has been worth 0.0...
