Don Baylor's hard-hitting Angels head for October

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) Don Baylor's return to the Los Angeles Angels got off to an unbelievably inauspicious start when the hitting coach broke his leg while crouching to catch the ceremonial first pitch on opening day.

So,...

Boxscore Breakdown #162: Next – Mariners 4, Angels 1

It’s all over, folks. The regular season is done and the Angels are moving on to the next challenge. Sure, they ended the regular season with a bit of a whimper after getting swept by the Mariners, but that isn’t really irrelevant. Get worked up about momentum if you want, but the Halos now have three days to rest up, get everyone healthy, line up their roster and get to a confident...

Boxscore Breakdown #161: The greater good – Mariners 2, Angels

Yes, the Angels lost this game, but that’s alright. The loss was meaningless to the Angels and it furthered the greater good.

Because Mike Scioscia was gracious enough to turn things over to the second string in the seventh inning of a one-run...

Los Angeles Angels: Mike Trout the obvious choice for MVP

It has long been known by Los Angeles Angels fans that center-fielder Mike Trout is one of the best players in the league. Many would argue that he, and not Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera deserved to win the Most Valuable Player award each of the last two years. The good news is that this year, Trout’s time has finally come. At age 23, Trout has once again delivered an incredible...

Boxscore Breakdown #160: Tuned up – Mariners 4, Angels 3

This was supposed to be a nice tune up game for Jered Weaver as he readied himself for Game 1 of the ALDS. Instead, he was the one that got tuned up. In a fitting piece of symmetry, Weaver ended his regular season as he began it, with a middling and mildly concerning loss at the hands of the Mariners. Gone was the velocity spike that Weaver had seen in his last two starts. In those...

Mike Trout made a ridiculous leaping catch because of course he did

The Angels had nothing to play for on Friday night, but that doesn’t mean they weren’t giving it their all out ther. Mike Trout most definitely wasn’t mailing it in when he made this ridiculous running, leaping catch: That’s levitation, Holmes.

Mike Trout made another sick catch on Friday

What else can we really say about the defense of Mike Trout aside from “holy crap”? This twisting, leaping catch in the eighth inning of Friday’s Angels-Mariners game at Safeco Field robbed Kendrys Morales of extra bases.
