Series Takeaways: The Art of the Ugly Win

I think I’ve finally given up trying to figure out what this team is doing. Far as I can tell, there are three things about this year’s Angels we know for certain: the offense is bad once you get past Pujols, the base-running is bad all over, and Johnny Giavotella’s defense is atrocious. Everything else is somewhere in the middle, often with flashes of good/great dampered...

Ladies and gentlemen, I am here to investigate some very grievous charges that have been levied against the 2015 Angels.

Scioscia came close to using Angels' position player as pitcher for the first time

For most baseball fans, watching a position player take the mound and pitch in a blowout is highly entertaining. How fast is his fastball? Does he strike anybody out? These are the amusing elements that make an otherwise frustrating game somewhat tolerable for fans of the team on the wrong end of the score. For Los Angeles Angels skipper Mike Scioscia, however, it's territory he...

Is it safe to say Justin Verlander is officially back?

Anyone who watched the Detroit Tigers game Wednesday night was likely having flashbacks of the seasons from 2006-2012 as right hander Justin Verlander dominated the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, losing a no-hitter in the 9th inning. Verlander was a perennial All Star, MVP candidate, and Cy Young candidate for over half a decade until injuries hampered him for a majority of the last...

So You Want an Edge Against Mike Trout

Like a lot of people, Wednesday evening I was watching Justin Verlander try his damnedest to no-hit the Angels. I was tuning in because of the pitcher, but in the seventh inning, I found myself thinking about the hitter. It was in the top of the seventh that Verlander faced Mike Trout for what would be the last time, and I was reminded of something Sam Miller pointed out a couple...

Boxscore Breakdown #126: Avoiding the inevitable – Tigers 5, Angels 0

The Angels narrowly avoided getting no-hit by Justin Verlander, but only barely. Even with so little time left in the season it seems like this avoidance was just temporary. There isn’t an Angels fan out there who would disagree that ending up on the wrong side of a no-hitter is the manifest destiny for this feast-or-(mostly) famine lineup. An unlikely hero saved them from their...
