Royals look to avoid sweep by Angels

Chris Young showed through his first three outings why he hasn't been known as a strikeout pitcher for quite some time. He then felt the need to explain himself after recording double-digit Ks for the first time in eight years in his last start.It doesn't seem likely that he'll repeat that performance against a Los Angeles Angels team that has struck out less than anyone else, but...

Series Preview: Angels vs. Royals vs. Run Support

There are only so many ways to talk about how awful a team’s offense is before it becomes a stale and frustrating topic. No one wants to hear over and over again how bad something is—they just want it to get better so they can talk about positive things. When that doesn’t happen, though, we’re left with nothing to do but retread over the same somber points. To wit: The...

Series Preview - Angels vs. the Royals (Dance with the devil)

World Series winners waltz into Anaheim to allemande with the Angels What can go wrong when the World Series winners, and team with the 3rd highest batting average in the AL, take on the team with the worst batting average in all of baseball?  The Royals have averaged 3.9 runs per game so far this year with just 3 per game for the Angels. When it comes to pitching, the Royals have...

Series Preview: Royals at Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

The Royals head west for the final time this season (yes, that’s accurate) and begin by hitting Anaheim to take on the Angels. The Angels have all the looks of a pretty mediocre team this season for a number of reasons, but they also have one of the two best players in baseball, so I suppose anything is possible. It’s not that long ago that the Royals swept the Angels in the...

Series Preview - Angels V. The Mariners (Dipoto Duel)

Jerry Dipoto's retooled Mariners come to town to play the Angels, who were mostly built by Dipoto. To be fair, Eppler put his hands in this current roster and Dipoto only re-tooled so much, what he was given in Seattle.  But in some ways it's a like a homecoming of sorts to the team that essentially kicked him to the curb (or rather made it so difficult he had to leave).  I'm...

DraftKings: Tropeano Is About To Enjoy Some Spaghetti Alla Marinara

You ready to have your mind blown? Well, maybe it won't blow your mind but I was searching and searching on a way to tell you in the title that Nick Tropeano was a play today and then I remembered Tropeano was an Italian name. Then I was like, 'Mariners sounds like Marinara, let's do some wiki'ing' and guess what I found? Marinara is literally Italian for Mariner so Spaghetti...

Hector Santiago pitched the game of his Angels life on Monday, allowing just two hits and striking out 10 in seven scoreless innings of work. The southpaw was calculated and uncharacteristically efficient for the second straight start, never once topping even 18 pitches in an inning.
