Don’t Stop BeWeaveing

Has Jered Weaver lost his touch? That thought has potentially crossed the mind of every Angel fan so far. Yes, Weaver has had two rough outings so far and yes, Weaver has lost some of his velocity in his fastball. But does that mean that our Ace isn’t as reliable as he once was? Not quite. Weaver was drafted by the Angels in 2004 and made his MLB debut May 27, 2006 against the...

How to Keep the Machine Running Smoothly

Albert Pujols, who recently hit his 522nd homerun to become 18th on the all-time homerun list April 12th 2015, is undoubtedly past his prime. But, that does not mean he can’t still be an all-star and more importantly a contributor to the Angels’ lineup. Pujols is fully capable of another 25 plus and 100 RBI season. Also, Pujols is fully healthy this year and has two run producing...

MLB week one: Steroids (!), Colon (?!?) Miggy, and 19 innings of Sox-Yanks

If nothing else, the first week of major league baseball has been, well, interesting. To wit: Firstly, I need to get this off my chest. I had to drop Mets closer Jennry Mejia from my fantasy baseball team. Seems he’s been suspended 80 games without pay for using the steroid Stanozolol. Dumb you say? Well, yeah. And what makes it even more idiotic is that Mejia is the 4th player...

Comment on Quarter Season Crisis? by Tim Schoenherr

Good analysis. Enjoying Sweet Home Sports. Even though I hate it. “he did, after all, lead them to two straight scoring drives in the final four minutes that lead to two touchdowns and matching 2-point conversions.” …against a time-chewing, prevent defense that was giving him every underneath throw. He took what the defense was giving him, wisely, but was there ever really...

Comment on Quarter Season Crisis? by Eric Burgher

It makes me very happy that you read these The comment was more about Cutler continuing to be able to move the ball and score in the 4th quarter, and although it was a long shot, if they recover that onside kick, then Cutler has the ball back, near mid-field, down one touchdown, two time outs left and a major momentum swing. Didn’t see it ACTUALLY happening, but, I wouldn’t be...

Comment on Big “T” Over Big 3 by Willie Santana

I remember the Bulls and Rose giving the Heat a challenge. Melo doesn’t play defense so he might bud heads with Thibodeau, who I think has done an amazing job of making sure his players don’t quit even without Rose. It would be interesting to see a healthy Rose along with a scorer. No views yet

Yo Adrian!

There’s locked in – and then there’s Adrian Gonzalez. The 32-year old Dodgers first baseman has had a start of the season for the ages. Simply put: 10 hits in his first 13 at bats, 5 of those home runs. He’s the first player since Orlando Cepeda in 1963 to collect three hits in his first three games.

C.J. Wilson turns the clock back in dominating Mariners in 2-0 victory.

When the Angels signed C.J. Wilson in the winter of 2011 they thought they were getting a pitcher who was going into his prime as Wilson was coming off back-to-back 15 + win seasons with an ERA under 3.20.  In 3 years with the Halos, Wilson has won at least 13 games each season, but his ERA has been closer to 4.00 (3.82) including last season’s implosion which saw Wilson’s ERA...

Fans of the game, specifically Dodger fans, more specifically older Dodger fans, of which I am one by the way, may not like what I’m about to write here, but Clayton Kershaw is already the greatest pitcher in Dodger history. Sorry members of the Sandy Koufax marching and chowder society. And yes, when it comes to post-season time, Kershaw has shown himself to be, well, mortal....

The Chicago Bears announced the signing of Ray McDonald last Tuesday as they attempt to re-establish themselves as the “Monsters of the Midway,” coming off of two very un-monster-like seasons. McDonald is exactly the kind of football player the Bears are looking for to fit Vic Fangio’s 3-4 scheme, a system that will look unfamiliar to Bears fans. Fangio coached McDonald in...
