Boxscore Breakdown #131: Total collapse – Athletics 11, Angels 5

The collapse of the Angels in August is now complete. That isn’t to say that the collapse is only now official, rather it means that August is done. The Angels are now free to continue collapsing into September and there is little reason to think that they won’t. In fact, their collapse has now reached a point where it has become contagious. Last night Shane Victorino tumbled...

Oh? So we’re doing this again. I thought we got past the whole “Shoemaker turned into a pumpkin” phase, yet here we are again with Shoe turning in the worst start of his career at an inopportune time. Granted, the Angels probably weren’t going to beat Johnny Cueto anyway, but having another concern in the rotation is the last thing the Angels need. In fact, Shoemaker just...

Boxscore Breakdown #115: That makes sense – Royals 4, Angels

Just in case you thought the Angels had turned a corner after their huge comeback against the vaunted Royals bullpen, I present you with this clunker. It had all the earmarks of the same slumping Angels only they mixed in shoddy defense and moronic baserunning, just to up the ante. Honestly, nobody really thought their fortunes were going to change because of just one game, but it...
