Last Week: 1
|Mike Trout - Trout had a slow, by his standards, start to 2013 but he has busted out of the gate in 2014. Be afraid. Be very afraid.|
Last Week: 7
|Josh Hamilton - Nobody make a sound. Move very slowly. We don't want to start The Hamilton while it is playing well. Don't be the guy that ruins it for everyone.|
Last Week: 2
|Albert Pujols - So if he's healthy and feeling good and still not producing, what gives? It is too early to worry, but maybe we need to at least start thinking about how much a 34-year old can really bounce back.|
Last Week: 3
|Jered Weaver - (No comment available as the author is trying to get his head deeper into the sand.)|
Last Week: 4
|C.J. Wilson - A rough start to the year for C.J., but not bad enough to trump any of the other concerns on the pitching staff.
Last Week: 13
|Joe Smith - A big boost up the rankings as he is the only reliever on the team who is actually worth a damn.
Last Week: 6
|Howie Kendrick - Nice to see that Howie got his first GIDP out of the way so early in the season.|
Last Week: 5
|Kole Calhoun - OK, maybe #5 was too high for Calhoun. He is going to have to earn his ranking back. I think he will, but for now he has the look of a guy trying that is trying way too hard.|
Last Week: 10
|Erick Aybar - I had game #9 in the pool for when Aybar drew his first walk. Lo and behold he already has two!|
Last Week: 16
|Tyler Skaggs - Must not get too excited. Must remember he was facing Houston. Must... stay... cautiously optimistic.|
Last Week: 12
|Garrett Richards - Sooooo close to having a great first start. Instead, he reminded us of why the franchise has had so much trouble committing to him over the years.|
Last Week: 8
|Hector Santiago - I told you, people. Those command issues are a real thing worth worrying about.
Last Week: 9
|Ernesto Frieri - Just because the rest of the bullpen was terrible this week doesn't mean Frieri gets a free pass for giving up two homers in his lone appearances this season.|
Last Week: 11
|David Freese- Spring Training is over and the regular season is underway and yet we still have yet to witness a David Freese extra base hit.
Last Week: 14
|Chris Iannetta - His hot spring hasn't carried over thus far, but it does appear to have earned him the larger share of playing time from Scioscia... for now.|
Last Week: 17
|Hank Conger - Just patiently biding his time until Iannetta gets his turn in the doghouse.|
Last Week: 15
|Raul Ibanez - 10 strikeouts in 20 plate appearances. It is almost like Trumbo never left.|
Last Week: 20
|John McDonald> - Known for his glove, it is only natural that McDonald collects two hits and an error that allowed a run to score.
Last Week: 24
|Nick Maronde - His control still seems all over the place, but the results for Maronde haven't been half bad.|
Last Week: 21
|Michael Kohn - The strikeouts are so tantalizing, but the walks and homers continue to be a problem.|
Last Week: 22
|Collin Cowgill - Not only did Cowgill get a surprise start, but he was even allowed to bat leadoff. I don't know what's going on anymore.|
Last Week: 19
|Kevin Jepsen - Only in the Bullpen of Perpetual Sorrow is Kevin Jepsen not the biggest problem.|
Last Week: 23
|Ian Stewart -
I feel bad for Ian. He was the only Angel to not get a start in the first week.
Last Week: 25
|Matt Shoemaker - With Dane De La Rosa due back later this week, we may not be seeing Shoemaker much longer.|
Last Week: 18
|Fernando Salas - Welp, I guess we don't have to look too hard to find the new goat on the roster now that Blanton is gone.
Biggest Faller: Fernando Salas, down seven spots because he is just the worst and Scioscia doesn’t realize it
Biggest Riser: Joe Smith, up seven spots because the rest of the bullpen blows
