Boxscore Breakdown #106: You’re not paying attention – Orioles 4, Angels 3

Let’s be honest. You’re not going to read this. You’re not paying attention at all. The trade deadline is happening and stuff is actually going down this year. Why would you waste time to read a game recap? What’s wrong with you? Run Expectancy Rundown Chris Iannetta had the big hit, well, it had to be big since there were only four hits in the game. The guy who didn’t...

Red Sox Trade Deadline: Boston’s 10 Most Untouchable Assets (Photos)

The Red Sox’s goal is to immediately turn things around while simultaneously building for long-term success. It really should be the goal of every organization, but Boston already has a leg up given its surplus of exciting, young players. It’s been a disappointing season for the Red Sox, who entered Wednesday — one day before Major League Baseball’s non-waiver trade deadline...

What Have we Seen at the Projected Worst Positions in Baseball?

The Perfect Game for a Return to the Ballpark

As a baseball fan(atic), it is difficult being a displaced fan. Sure, there is MLB.tv if you want to fork out $150 for lag and a buffering screen. But it is nothing like being surrounded by the community that fully supports that same team colors that you do. It is nothing like being able to simply turn on the TV at game time, sit back with family members or friends, grab some snack...

Pitcher Profile: Matt Shoemaker AKA Matt Truemaker

I was a little unsure of who would be profiled this week (I thought about Jacob deGrom, but Front Row Amy was in attendance so I'd be too distracted...), so I went with a twitter suggestion that make me scratch my head a bit.  Matt Shoemaker?  Is he really interesting at all?

The Cost of Moving Matt Kemp

Not too long ago, Dave ran through his annual trade value series. Predictably, he ranked the most valuable player in baseball as being Mike Trout. Less predictably, but still predictably, he ranked the most anti-valuable player in baseball as being Albert Pujols. Mike Trout and Albert Pujols are teammates! A fun question, then, that showed […]

Miguel Cabrera messing with Mike Trout

Miguel Cabrera, 2-time MVP, was messing around with Mike Trout during Thursday night’s game when Trout reached first base. Cabrera was trying to block Trout’s view as Trout was trying to peer over at his third-base coach for the sign (hint on the sign: GREEN LIGHT): Two of the game’s best can still have fun. http://t.co/kkfDkgicuz — MLB GIFS (@MLBGIFs) July 25, 2014   They...

Efren Navarro proving versatility in season's third stint with Angels

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Efren Navarro's big-league moment arrived last Friday night, in the 16th of a game that stretched past midnight. There weren't many fans remaining at Angel Stadium, but that didn't matter. Navarro drove a pitch into center field, Mike Trout scored from second base and the Angels beat the Seattle Mariners 3-2.

Miguel Cabrera Tried To Distract Mike Trout By Waving In His Face

The two best hitters in baseball, Mike Trout and Miguel Cabrera, paired off last night in Los Angeles as the Detroit Tigers played the Angels on Thursday night.

Mike Trout is Not Amused by Miguel Cabrera’s Feeble Attempt to Cover His Eyes

The MLB can essentially call off their nationwide sweep for a new commissioner, as Angels phenom Mike Trout is quickly establishing himself as the league’s new boss. After reaching base in Thursday’s nights game against the Tigers, Trout found himself ignoring Miguel Cabrera’ feeble attempts to block his eyes from Angels third base coach Gary DiSarcina.

On Deck: Tigers at Angels

Finishing out their west-coast road trip, the Detroit Tigers (56-42, 1st in AL Central) will head over to take on the Los Angeles Angels (59-40, 2nd in AL West)  in a four-game set. Arguably two of the top three teams in the majors, this may have the feeling of a playoff-preview rather than a typical series.

How Does Clayton Kershaw Compare

Clayton Kershaw is having an extraordinary year. Isn’t he? And the media loves it. When not drooling over Mike Trout (I swear the coverage of this guy is so intense I bet they know what he has for breakfast each day), they are breaking down every pitch Kershaw throws. More power to Kershaw, though, he is having a truly tremendous season and deserves the attention this year and...

Angels suffer first back-to-back losses in a month

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- No pitcher wants to come out of a game in the middle of a shutout, but Angels left-hander Hector Santiago understood why it happened Tuesday night. His pitch count was up, and he was admittedly a bit fatigued after battling the flu for three days. So even though he wanted to continue pitching into the sixth inning, his night was over. Santiago's exit was the...

Mike Trout, Albert Pujols Troll Fernando Rodney During Angels Rally (Video)

The Los Angeles Angels have had enough of Seattle Mariners closer Fernando Rodney. After each save, Rodney celebrates by shooting an imaginary bow and arrow toward the sky. Against the Angels on Sunday, Rodney celebrated a little early, doing his normal antics after recording the final out of the eighth inning. In ninth inning, however, the Angels got their revenge.
