Halo History: Favorite Angels Baseball Cards

I got a notification Thursday morning announcing the terrific news that Topps had selected Mike Trout to be card number one in their 2016 set. Being the first card in the set is a tradition that baseball card companies have followed to honor a special player. Topps decided to let fans choose by way of an online vote this year, and Trout was declared the winner. “It’s awesome...

Halo History: The Best Angels Offense Ever

It used to be that statements based on the premise “the greatest ever” were purely subjective opinions, but now the sabermetric revolution has changed all that when it comes to baseball. If we wanted and had the right access, we could probably how many times Player A blinked while standing at first base when a left-handed pitcher was throwing a 1-2 curveball with a below average...

Why don't Angels have any Hall of Famers? Tim Salmon has an idea

There are five Major League teams without a representative in the Hall of Fame: the Colorado Rockies, Miami Marlins, Tampa Bay Rays, Washington Nationals and the Los Angeles Angels. The Halos' spot on that list stands out since they've been around nearly sixty years, whereas the other four organizations are relatively 'new' to the league.Why, then, are there no Angel caps in Cooperstown...

Some Crazy Mike Trout Porn

By Jonathan Northrop, AngelsWin.com Contributor -  I thought this was worth sharing. My favorite player of the 90s, and the player that up until a few years ago could be considered "Mr Angel" and arguably the best outfielder they've ever had, is none other than Tim Salmon (Edmonds was as good, and better as a Cardinal, but I'm talking total career as an Angel). Salmon accrued...
