Don Baylor's hard-hitting Angels head for October

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) Don Baylor's return to the Los Angeles Angels got off to an unbelievably inauspicious start when the hitting coach broke his leg while crouching to catch the ceremonial first pitch on opening day. Just about every game since has been an improvement for Baylor, who is leading the majors' most productive lineup back to the postseason. Although he deflects...

Our 10 Worst Hitter Projections of 2014

One of my favorite parts of the year is the day after the season ends when the final numbers roll in and we can officially grade our projections. While most of them are close-but-not-perfect, there are always a handful we nail and a whole bunch we completely miss on. This week it’s these bests and worsts that I’ll be sharing with you, and we’ll begin this retrospective with...

Angels Players Power Rankings – End of regular season edition

This is the final Angels Player Power Rankings for the regular season. It is NOT the last edition of the year though. My plan is to do one at the end of each playoff round. Hopefully that means I get to do three of those. After that, I’ll do one big blowout edition after the season is totally over and rank everyone who so much as entered a game for the Angels this year. So,...

Trout, Strasburg giving playoffs a fresh look

So, is this the year of Buck Showalter, Bryce Harper and a Beltway Series? Or perhaps Albert Pujols, Yasiel Puig and a Freeway Series? Maybe a Bay Area matchup or something from the Show Me State. Plenty of World Series possibilities this year. And a lot to enjoy way before we get there, now that the playoff brackets are set. It took Game 162 to settle three races Sunday, a final...

Los Angeles Angels: Mike Trout the obvious choice for MVP

It has long been known by Los Angeles Angels fans that center-fielder Mike Trout is one of the best players in the league. Many would argue that he, and not Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera deserved to win the Most Valuable Player award each of the last two years. The good news is that this year, Trout’s time has finally come. At age 23, Trout has once again delivered an incredible...

Super advice for Denver Broncos: Throw the ball!

Mike Trout is not asked to bunt. No coach would ever order LeBron James to shoot left-handed. Matt Duchene and Ryan O'Reilly are not required to brawl. So why is a team with Peyton Manning as its quarterback trying to run the ball? Bullhorned suggestion to the Broncos: Put it up! Enough already, with a clump of Sports Authority Field at Mile High dust and second-and-12. The...

Boxscore Breakdown #160: Tuned up – Mariners 4, Angels 3

This was supposed to be a nice tune up game for Jered Weaver as he readied himself for Game 1 of the ALDS. Instead, he was the one that got tuned up. In a fitting piece of symmetry, Weaver ended his regular season as he began it, with a middling and mildly concerning loss at the hands of the Mariners. Gone was the velocity spike that Weaver had seen in his last two starts. In those...

Mike Trout makes a no-look leaping catch, Kendrys Morales isn’t impressed

Kendrys Morales hit a pitch to center in the eighth inning last night that would be a base hit 99% of the time. But unfortunately for Morales, Mike Trout was playing center field which meant that last 1% was in play. Trout overran the ball and had no choice but to throw his glove up and hope to make the grab. And amazingly, he was able to do so. Your browser does not support iframes...

Mike Trout made a ridiculous leaping catch because of course he did

The Angels had nothing to play for on Friday night, but that doesn’t mean they weren’t giving it their all out ther. Mike Trout most definitely wasn’t mailing it in when he made this ridiculous running, leaping catch: That’s levitation, Holmes. Trout’s defensive highlights have been a bit sparse this year for whatever reason so we can overlook the fact that he didn’t...
