The long climb begins; Angels beat A’s 4-1

There's an old saying, the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. For the Angels, any hope of contention for the AL West title or a wild card begins with nights like tongiht. The A's are one of the best teams in baseball (I know I threw up a little just typing […]

Angels mail another one in; fall to Mariners again

Count the Angels as one of those clubs that is definetly looking ahead to the All Star Break. The last two nights have highlighted everything that has been wrong with the season so far. Tonight, the defense and the bullpen contributed to what was a pitcher's duel becoming a laugher for the Mariners. This trend is […]

Angels say goodbye to a .500 first half; lose to Mariners

It's official. The Angels will end the ceremonial first half of the season under .500. The loss tonight means that even if they win the next two the Halos best case scenario is 46-47 to head into the all star break. Now if you had checked with me about a month ago and told me […]

Angels roar back in the ninth; Win in Extras

Admit it, you stopped watching around the 6th inning. Sure, you kept your phone on just to check in from time to time, but surely there was something better on TV than watching the Angles mail another one in. Still questions remained. Would they get totally blown out? would there be any sort of comeback […]

Defense breaks down; Angels Fall to Red Sox

I loathe the Red Sox. I have trained in my years of Angel's fandom to hate the Rangers, A's and Mariners. Over time I have come to despise the Yankees for the wanton self-entitlement. But the Red Sox have a special place of anger in my heart. I hate the way they cry about being […]

Angels rolling towards .500; defeat Astros again

I very much enjoy when the Angels win. After a season that has been marked with some truly wretched play, its a nice change to see the Halos play the way they are supposed to. Now I know I have probably written that statement on more than one occasion this season only to see the […]

Better Late than Never; Angels top Astros 4-2

I haven't shave since last Sunday. This is partly because I loathe the process of shaving. Ever since I made this monumental decision the Angels have not lost a game. Now I know my folical expansion has no correlation to the Angels' winning streak hitting four games. I am not usually into this sort of superstitious argle fargle ( […]

Angels show no life; lose to Pirates 6-1

It's getting harder and harder to write something original about the Angels these days. It sure looks like the team is starting to realize this won't be there year. Tonight's game was a perfect showcase of a team that just doesn't seem to know what to do. They have struggled all season to get any […]

Local kid makes good at Angels’ expense; Halos fall 5-2

Now that the euphoria of last night's come from behid win in over, we now return to our regularly scheduled broadcast of pain and misery. Just when it looks like maybe things will start to turn around, along comes Gerrit Cole to shut the Angels down. Cole is a local kid who has all the […]

What a Comeback!! Angels win 10-9

Holy Cow!! When games like tonight happen, the fan in me can't help but get swept up in the moment. There was absolutely no reason for the Angels to win tonight. Down by 7 runs to maybe the best pitcher in the American League following a night when they couldn't manufacture squat. Most nights it's […]

Angels starting to look vintage; defeat Yankees 6-2

Hey, I remember this team. The decent starting pitchng. The shut down bullpen. The timely hitting and agressive baserunnig. The occasionally boneheaded play that ends up meaning nothing in the end. It's as if someone went down to the clubhouse and reminded Mik Scioscia what his teams used to excel at. Over the past two […]

Angels grind out win to open homestand

We have officially reached the panic section of the Angels' season. The team started the night 10 games under .500 and closer to last place than the wid card race. Things are pretty bleak around Anaheim. So tonight's first game of a 10 game homestand felt more like a referendum on the future than a […]

Angels run in place; split doubleheader with Red Sox

Last night's rainout gave us a full day of the highs and lows of Angel baseball. In game one, the bats drove the team to a nice win which allowed them to gain some ground in the AL west. But in true Angel fashion the second game brought the Halos back down to Earth as […]

Same old Song and Dance, Angels fall to Astros Again

What the hell was that? How is it that Bud Norris can look like Cy Young against our beloved underachievers? Do you realize that he has beaten the Angels three times giving up one run in the process? How is that possible when facing such a vaunted lineup? Oh yeah, forgot, the Angel bats have […]

Angels frustrated again, lose to Astros 6-3

Good teams are not supposed to lose regularly to bad teams. The Atheltics own the Astros with a 9-0 record. Ditto for the Rangers with a 5-1 record. Not our Angels, no sir. The Angels have a losing record to the lowly 'Stros having dropped four of seven to the celler dwellers. Why does this […]
