Boxscore Breakdown #49: No explanation required – Angels 2, Tigers 0

Hector Santiago just shut down one of the top offenses in the American League, one loaded with several dangerous right-handed hitters. He didn’t struggle with them one bit. Now he leads the Angels in ERA, is top 15 in all of baseball and only seems to be getting better. How did this happen? I don’t know and I don’t think I want to know. As soon as I find out, it might blow...

Los Angeles Angels: Relief Street

Street has 15 saves thus far in 2015. In a year where the Los Angeles Angels (25-24) have seen their fair share of ups and downs, one thing has been beyond consistent. That thing is the play of closing pitcher, Huston Street. His most recent example of success came during last night’s game. Set-up man, Joe Smith, was unavailable to pitch due to neck pain. That allowed Street to...

Angels Prospect Spotlight: Relief Pitcher Magic

As I’ve stated before in the Angels Prospect Spotlight series, the Angels have more relief prospects than Santa has elves. Jerry Dipoto, being a former reliever himself, definitely seems to have an affinity for them, and not in the way you’d think.  If I asked you to picture a typical major league relief pitcher in your mind, what type of pitcher would come to mind?  Undoubtedly...

Angels outfielder Collin Cowgill was placed on the disabled list today due to a sprained right wrist. Despite this, the left-hand throwing Cowgill was working out in the field throwing, but without a glove on his injured right hand. Former Angels pitcher Jim Abbott saw this news and, well, let’s just say he was not impressed: So, what's the issue? https://t.co/4Tgt1ILNIP ...

Grant Green has been freed, now what?

#FreeGrantGreen has been a thing for much of 2015. It even had some moments during the 2014 season. Since the Angels acquired Grant Green at the 2013 trade deadline, they’ve been oddly reluctant to make use of him. There have been plenty of reasons given over the last two years, but now the Halos finally seem to have run out of excuses and have, in fact, freed Grant Green. So...

Were the 2014 Angels a fluke?

As we near the end of May, it’s becoming increasingly apparent that how we perceive the Angels, and thus, how they’ve built their 2015 team has happened under false pretenses. Last year, the Angels had the best offense in baseball, anchored by MVP Mike Trout, former MVP’s Albert Pujols and Josh Hamilton, and fully supported by the tragically underrated Kole Calhoun, Chris Iannetta...
