The Rise of the Los Angeles Angels

It was supposed to be Oakland’s division to lose, remember? It was always supposed to be Oakland.

Boxscore Breakdown #153: Salt Lake Bees of Anaheim – Mariners 3, Angels 1

There’s nothing like some crucial September baseball games with playoff implications. That is unless you’ve already clinched your playoff spot and don’t care anymore. In that case, you run out the lineup and starting pitcher for your Triple-A team. It wasn’t exactly high drama and I suspect a lot of Angels fans took the night off as well, but we almost got ourselves a nice...

Karma – She’s No Lady, She’s a…Well, You Know

By Glen McKee, AngelsWin.com resident grudge-holder - Karma is an interesting concept.  If you go by the Buddhist definition, what we do in this life is repaid to us in the next.  If you extrapolate that to baseball, it means that what a team does in the current season will be repaid to them in the next.  Not this one, but the next.  That seems pretty simple but it is apparently...

Can the Angels use the “bullpen day” in the playoffs?

I was planning on writing this post for about a week now. It was going to be more in the vein of wondering whether or not going with the “bullpen day” starter could hypothetically work, knowing full well that the Angels would never dare try it. But thanks to the oblique injury to Matt Shoemaker, this now has to take on the tone of, “Gosh, I hope they can make it work because...
