Series Preview: Angels vs. Rangers vs. Blaze of Glory

vs  MATCH-UP MOTTOS THURSDAY, 9/26: Jerome Williams vs. Matt Garza: One last job Jerome Williams is going up against a strong competitor in Matt Garza, although Williams does have a competitive streak in him as well.

Series Preview: Mariners vs. Angels vs. Comfortably Numb

   VS. FRIDAY, 9/20: Erasmo Ramirez vs. Matt Shoemaker: Rookie blues. Matt Shoemaker is slated to make his first major league starting appearance against the lowly M's. Then again, he is starting for the lowly Angels, so there's something to be said for that. People aren't really too high on this move due to Shoemaker's underwhelming season, […]

Angels takes series from Astros, win 2-1

Vargas just killed Texas, so I'm guessing he can keep that magic […]

Angels lose to Rangers 4-3, drop bid for sweep in Anaheim

While the Angels have been performing wildly over expectations the past few series they were unable to pull it all together this Sunday for a big sweep of the Texas Rangers. While the Angels are no way in any position to make a playoff push they can still keep other teams like the Rangers from […]

Series Preview: Rangers vs. Angels vs. Spoiler Alert

vs. MONDAY, 9/6: Matt Garza vs. C.J. Wilson: Dream-killers Matt Garza is slated to start an important series for the Halos against the Texas Rangers. Important for the Rangers, I should say.

Angels find late success against Brewers in 5-3 win.

The Angels have capped off a marvelous road trip with a sweep of the Brewers, a swept that wouldn't have happened had it not been for one J.B Shuck and an expertly placed first base bag. C.J Wilson wasn't all too bad in his start, though he wasn't anything spectacular as he was able to […]

Inches from failure, Angels sweep Mariners with 7-1 win

With the Angels sweeping the Mariners they've inched just a bit towards avoiding a complete disaster of a season.

While […]

And so it begins, Angels fall to Astros 7-5

VS.   MATCH-UP MOTTOS FRIDAY, 8/16: Jerome Williams vs. Brad Peacock: Bi-polar Baseball! Jerome Williams has been incredibly erratic this year, going 5-8 with a near 5 ERA on the season.

Falling short as always, Angels lose it in 9th to Blu Jays 6-5

After what looked to be a promising series after the Angels horrid start to the second half the Angels bullpen went ahead to crap the bed again in the Angels 9th inning failure to the Blue Jays. What was originally a 5-2 lead turned in a 6-5 deficit after Frieri failed to shut the door […]

Well then….this is awkward; Angels drop heartbreaker to A’s 6-10

This was one of those games that define a season, just when the Angels look like they're hot and unstoppable they hit a brick wall, hard. The Angels jumped to a quick 5-0 lead by the 2nd inning, Hanson wasn't looking nearly as implosive as usual and the hitting was red hot. Nothing could stop […]

The Buck Stops Here; Athletics cool off hot Angels, win 6-0

Mike Trout and the All-Star Phenomenon

The All-Star break is a long standing tradition, and in the game of baseball tradition is something held very close to the game.

Angels end 1st half with sweep by the Mariners, lose 4-3

After hitting a hot streak and looking like a legitimate contender for .500 1st half (don't laugh) they end the run with a sweep in Seattle. Despite ending the 1st half on the season under .500 and facing an ugly sweep against the Mariners the Angels are still in a decent spot to make a […]

Weaver snuffs out Red Sox 3-0 On ESPN; SoCal rejoices

The Angels have finally done something special on ESPN's Sunday Night Baseball that they haven't done in a while; win in glorious fashion.

Angels atone for season, sweep Astros 3-1

Coming into this season everyone was sure the Angels would be able to use the Astros for the sole purpose of fattening up their record.
