Questioning Chris Iannetta’s 2014 season

He didn’t get much credit for it, but Chris Iannetta turned in one heck of a season, at least offensively. He nearly beat out Mike Trout for the best OBP on the team and once again established himself as the primary catcher in the ever-changing Mike Scioscia catching depth chart. When did Iannetta become such […]

Angels offseason acquisition targets

Yesterday, we looked at what the Angels need this offseason. That’s great. Now we just need to figure out how to fill those needs. Fortunately, I’ve got just the blog post for that. It is almost like I planned it that way or something. Weird, right? Anyway, let’s start scouring this pisspoor free agent market […]

Questioning Joe Smith’s 2014 season

Joe Smith was the reliever with the pedestrian name but the excellent numbers in 2014. Despite a very impressive year, Smith still appears to be flying under the radar. But maybe that is for the best since it seems like he might have been pitching well over his head. Should the Angels have signed Smith […]

Angels needs going into the offseason

The Angels are needy. All they do want, want want. They were the best team in baseball in 2014 with 98 wins, yet here they are acting like greedy little brats, demanding more toys for their roster so they can be even better. Ugh, what an insufferable ballclub. Fine, let’s humor this spoiled brat and actually take a […]

Questioning Kole Calhoun’s 2014 season

For most Angels fans, the only acceptable question about Kole Calhoun‘s 2014 season is, “how much do you love, Kole?” While he might be the most beloved Angel, non-Trout division, we are still going to poke and prod at his performance a bit. Try not to take it as a personal affront. Was Calhoun actually good as […]

Angels on the free agency and trade block

The offseason draws nigh. As soon as the Royals finish fulfilling their manifest destiny, the Angels will be free to go about fine tuning their roster for another playoff run next year. However, before they can do that, they need to take care of some housekeeping. No, I’m not talking about sweeping all the rat turds out […]

Questioning Hector Santiago’s 2014 season

There may not have been an Angels pitcher who had a more question-rich season than Hector Santiago. At times he was frustrating, other times he was fine and other times he was incredibly frustrating. All in all in left everyone feeling a lot like this: Was Santiago good or bad in 2014? Let’s see, his […]

Questioning David Freese’s 2014 season

Today, I am starting a new series for the offseason because I clearly don’t do enough offseason series (i.e. top prospects, player projections, free agency preview). This series will functionally be a season in review for each player, but I’m not going to bother with all the basic info. You watch the Angels, you know this […]

A look back at the moves Jerry Dipoto did NOT make

Yesterday, we took a long, long walk down memory lane and reviewed literally every single personnel move that Jerry Dipoto made for the 2014 season. That was fun. 3,607 words of pure unadulterated fun. But I’m not sure it was actually all that interesting. Those moves were moves that we’d all seen before and analyzed extensively […]
