Boxscore Breakdown #42: The return – Angels 12, Red Sox 5

Garrett Richards returned to the scene of his injury, which was surely an emotional moment. He must’ve been so happy to make a clean start and get out of there unscath- WATCH OUT!! Right on the bad knee, too. As Richards said after the game, “Of course.” The other big return though was the Angels […]

Scioscia scowl

Second Guessing Scioscia – Free the Featherston

 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.

Boxscore Breakdown #40: Unbroken – Angels 4, Blue Jays 3

Albert Pujols is bruised but not broken. Literally. That’s not just a metaphor. His hand got hit by a pitch, but he escaped with just a contusion and no fractures. Now if you want a metaphor, the Angels were bruised in this game but unbroken. They fell behind early after a big inning, but survived […]

What does the Angels offense need more: power or OBP?

The Angels offense is a problem. They are the worst offense in the American League with a wRC+ of 84. As you might imagine, this is not the result of one particular flaw. The Angels offense is actually a problem made up of a multitude of smaller problems. They are 27th in batting average, 29th in on-base percentage, 26th in […]

Angels trade targets to be avoided

The Angels need to make a trade. We all know this. The repeated display of offensive ineptitude is going to make the Angels buyers on the upcoming trade market, but what exactly are they going to buy? No offense to Jerry Dipoto, but the trades he made to round out the lineup last offseason didn’t exactly […]

Boxscore Breakdown #38: @#$%! – Blue Jays 10, Angels 6

So many expletives, so little time. Actually, it was more about the timing of all those expletives. It should be seen as no strange coincidence that Josh Donaldson had his expletive-laden display at almost the exact same time that the Angels middle relief had their expletive-inducing display to cost the Angels the game. How is […]
