Halo Headlines: Law ranks Angels’ farm system dead last, tickets go on sale February 23rd

The February 5th, 2013 edition of daily news for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim including Law ranks Angels' farm system dead last, tickets go on sale February 23rd and much more…

The Story: Keith Law ranked the Angels' farm system as the worst in the majors.

The Monkey Says: Welp, I can't really say it any better than Law did. Hopefully the Halos can at least bust into the top 25 this time next year.

The Story: Tickets for individual Angels games go on sale at 9 AM on February 23rd.

The Monkey Says: This just made me realize that I haven't heard a single peep out of the Angels' marketing department about how season ticket sales are going. Methinks that probably isn't a good thing, especially after the surprising decline in attendance in 2012.

The Story: Reviewing the top off-season moves, the Angels apparently went for value.

The Monkey Says: I included the "apparently" in there because somehow they think the Angels spending $125 million on an injury-prone, former addict with rapidly declining contact skills and plate discipline in that "value" statement.

The Story: Mike Trout ranks as the top player in fantasy baseball.

The Monkey Says: Totally makes up for him not winning the MVP, am I right?

The Story: The Angels have the best lineup in baseball.

The Monkey Says: I honestly tried to come up with someone I would say is actually better, but I couldn't. That probably just means I am a homer, but I really tried not to be, so I think I deserve a little credit. Now if only I could do something about the pain in my elbow from all this patting myself on the back I've been doing.

The Story: A look back at the rise and fall of Josh Hamilton.

The Monkey Says: Many of you have probably heard this tale a million times already, but it does have some interesting insight from his wife, who apparently is the most patient and forgiving woman of all time, into how exactly he got his life back on track.

The Story: Don Baylor ranks as the tenth-best Angels acquisition of all time.

The Monkey Says: I would've guessed he would rank higher just because he was the first Angel to bring home hardware and a major reason for their very first playoff appearance.
