Boxscore Breakdown #17: Meanwhile, in Anaheim – Angels 3, Rangers 2

While everyone was still processing the pending Josh Hamilton trade back to Texas, a ballgame broke out between the Angels and Rangers. It was a game where it seemed that everything that could go wrong for the Angels would, right up until the bottom of the eighth when everything went oh so right. It gave […]

Angels vs. Rangers Series Preview: First or Last

In this very weird start to the season for the AL West, the Angels find themselves in a weird position. They are a few weeks into the season and their play has been concerning, but they are heading into this series against Texas in position to take the division lead if they pull of a sweep […]

Second Guessing Scioscia – You can’t have it both ways

Welcome to Second Guessing Scioscia, our look back at some of the questionable decisions that Mike Scioscia made in the last week. And, boy, there are some questionable decisions to be reviewed. In the history of this column, we have never once struggled for content. However, we aren’t anti-Scioscia. The official MWAH stance on Scioscia is pro-Scioscia overall. […]

Boxscore Breakdown #16: One-hit wonder – Angels 2, Athletics 0

It was a one-hitter and a shutout for the Angels! The catch is that the Halos were the ones that got one-hit but also the ones that pitched the shutout. Yes, this juggernaut offense only mustered a single solitary hit against known pitching luminary Jesse Chavez. Fortunately for them, that one hit left the yard […]

Who to worry about the most in the struggling Angels offense

When it comes to the Angels offense, the struggle is real. One of the best lineups in all of baseball in 2014 swapped out Josh Hamilton and Howie Kendrick for Matt Joyce and Johnny Giavotella. The result? The offense has gone straight into the crapper for the first 14 games of the 2015 season. The Angels […]

Boxscore Breakdown #15: Stolen Away – Athletics 9, Angels 2

Focus if you want on the bullpen meltdown (and I will tomorrow in Second Guessing Scioscia because, woof), but the real thing that killed the Angels in this game was the steals. Chris Iannetta just couldn’t throw anyone out and it cost them dearly. The first A’s run scored because Fuld stole his way into scoring […]

Analyzing the top 30 Angels prospects from 2012

Prospects are a tricky business. Predictions are tricky busniness. Predicting the future for prospects is very tricky business. Sometimes, tools don’t matter, makeup and intelligence does. The “grit” factor if you will. Sometimes the tools are so loud that it doesn’t matter what the makeup is. The only two slam dunk major leaguers I’ve ever […]

Who says no? Trading Josh Hamilton

When it comes to the idea of trading Josh Hamilton, most Angels fans can’t say “yes” fast enough. Some of them might even throw in their firstborn just to be rid of him. Or at least that is what they claim. Because the idea of actually trading Josh Hamilton seems so far-fetched, it is an easy claim […]
