Angels Top 30 Prospect Player Comps

Let me just preface this by saying, I hate comparisons. They’re never fair, nor are they entirely accurate. That’s why I hesitate to put them in any of the prospect reports during the offseason. Having said that, the Angels fans who actually read these are somewhat shortchanged because we don’t offer the comp service the […]

Angels Trade Wishlist: The Pollock Pipe Dream

With the trade deadline fast approaching, the writers at MWAH thought we’d all get together and do a roundtable of the trades we would like to see happen and call it our Angels Trade Wishlist. This was going to be one piece, but apparently we are all so amped for the deadline that each and […]

State of the AL West: Never say die

Entering the All-Star break, the Angels hold just a half game lead over the Houston Astros. At first glance, this appears to be a two team race, but upon closer investigation, we see that while it isn’t wide open, the AL West will likely find itself having five teams competing for a playoff spot. In […]

Angels prospects that deserve a promotion

Promoting prospects can be a tricky thing.   Sometimes, the numbers don’t matter, you simply promote to fill a need. Other times, a player might show something that isn’t showing up in the numbers, and still others, the numbers show almost exactly what’s going on. The Angels have their fair share of prospects that fall under […]

MLB: Minnesota Twins at Los Angeles Angels

Can we trust Bill Stoneman as GM?

Old news: Jerry Dipoto is gone, there’s a problem with the organizational hierarchy and Bill Stoneman is now (again) the Angels General Manager. New News: the Angels should probably start looking for someone else to make the decisions soon, because as it turns out, Bill Stoneman was actually an awful General Manager. You see the thing […]

Angels prospects primed to be traded

This time of year, speculation can run wild, especially for teams that are buying at the trade deadline. Sure, everyone likes the fancy name that is made available by a struggling team, but beneath the surface is really where all the action is. The June draft is finally in the rearview mirror, the Angels have […]

Six prospects the Angels should not trade

Prospects are currency. They’re what makes the baseball world go round. You see, free agents in their late 20’s and early 30’s typically have about five years left of major league productivity and cost tens or hundreds of millions of dollars. But if your team has a prospect for that spot, he can play six […]

MWAH Angels Top Prospects Stock Watch

Each month, we at MWAH (ok, just me) undertake the task of keeping you up to date on how the Angels top prospects are looking, at least compared to how we viewed them in January. As most of us already know, lots can change across the span of a month with these kids, much less six […]

Angels 2015 MLB Draft Preview

The Angels are entering the 2015 MLB draft with the last pick of the 1st round. A year ago, this would’ve made fans ecstatic. Jumping from the basement of the AL West to the best record in baseball and home field advantage throughout the playoffs has the makings of a magical season. Unfortunately, it didn’t end […]

Angels Prospect Spotlight: Relief Pitcher Magic

As I’ve stated before in the Angels Prospect Spotlight series, the Angels have more relief prospects than Santa has elves. Jerry Dipoto, being a former reliever himself, definitely seems to have an affinity for them, and not in the way you’d think.  If I asked you to picture a typical major league relief pitcher in your mind, what […]

Were the 2014 Angels a fluke?

As we near the end of May, it’s becoming increasingly apparent that how we perceive the Angels, and thus, how they’ve built their 2015 team has happened under false pretenses. Last year, the Angels had the best offense in baseball, anchored by MVP Mike Trout, former MVP’s Albert Pujols and Josh Hamilton, and fully supported […]

Angels Prospect Spotlight: Chris Ellis and Victor Alcantara

They come from worlds apart, but are both wild cards in the Angels system, lottery tickets that will either make the Angels an even more wealthy team in terms of pitching, or trade chips to be used as currency to buy Major Leaguers. Either way, Chris Ellis and Victor Alcantara carry an inherent value that […]

An inventory of the Angels trade assets

It’s no secret the Angels will be (and currently are) on the hunt for offense come trading season. Even with Chris Iannetta heating up and Pujols’ inevitable “resurgence” (really, it just means he won’t be as bad as he has been) the Angels offense would merely grade out as weak. They’ll be on the lookout […]

Sean Newcomb - Should not be traded (obviously).

Angels Prospect Spotlight: Sean Newcomb and Jeremy Rhoades

The Angels are a pitching heavy organization. This extends from the majors all the way down to Rookie Ball. They have their starting five, and then still hold onto Nick Tropeano and Andrew Heaney in AAA purely as depth. They have Tyler Skaggs returning next season, where he’ll project into the middle of the rotation. […]
