A Thanksgiving Rememberance

  Today is the one time of the year that everyone, no matter how well-off or unfortunate, gives thanks to what they have in their lives. Do you hear that Angel fans? This is the one time of the year that you all HAVE to thankful with what the Angels have given to you without […]

The Angels and the proven closer myth

Right near the top of Jerry Dipoto's off-season shopping list has to be bullpen help.  It is probably listed right underneath rotation help and maybe milk and eggs.  Regardless, getting some better, more reliable relievers is a major priority for the Halos after their 2012 season was largely torpedoed by the Bullpen of Perpetual Sorrow. […]

Angels Winter League Review: It’s all about the walks

The Arizona Fall League season has commenced and now most baseball junkies are tuning into late night or early afternoon ESPN to watch the Latin American winter leagues.  But what can we really take away from these offseason leagues?  In truth, not a lot.  Players can sink or swim for any number of reasons in […]

The 2012 Angels season summed up by search keywords

Whenever I am struggling with writer's block or just insanely bored, I like to take a look back through the traffic sources for the blog,  Sometimes the keyword referrals provide me with an idea but most of the time they just provide a good chuckle, like the time someone cam across the site by Googling […]

An extensive, but incomplete list of other awards that snubbed Mike Trout

We all know the stubborn, backwards-thinking BBWAA hosed our beloved Mike Trout by snubbing him in the American League voting yesterday.  It was wrong on so many levels, yet also disappointingly predictable.  What you may not know is that the MVP wasn't the only award that Mike Trout was wrongly overlooked for.  The following is […]

Who replaces Torii Hunter in the two-hole?

Torii Hunter is officially no longer an Angel, something we all have seen coming for weeks now.  For the most part, we've all made our peace with his departure and moved on.  We know the Halos have as they've already made it clear that they have a succession plan in place.  Peter Bourjos will take […]

What if the Angels pulled off a Marlins-style fire sale trade?

The baseball world is still frothing with rage over the latest and greatest Marlins fire sale trade.  Actually, calling it a fire sale trade isn't fair, it is really more of a raging inferno sale trade what with them dumping their two biggest free agent purchases from the off-season before along with pretty much every […]

Can the Angels really trust Kevin Jepsen?

Here is a scary thought, Kevin Jepsen.  That's it, just the idea of him. That probably seems like an awfully mean thing to say about the one member of the Angel bullpen who wasn't a greasefire in the second half of the 2012 season.  But the fact of the matter is that we've all been […]

A pre-emptive rant on Mike Trout not winning the AL MVP

I hope your happy, Baseball Writers Association of America.  You've gone and screwed up another major award voting.  Oh, sure, the winner of the AL MVP hasn't been announced yet, but we all know you are going to do the wrong thing and give the award to Miguel Cabrera.  Don't feel too bad about it […]

Hunter and Haren, a tour around the majors

As sports fans, it sometimes falls on us to show a modicum of grace in defeat. In most recent Halo history, that defeat is the loss of Dan Haren and Torii Hunter to free agency. It’s easy to whine, place blame, and get angry at the loss of two great players. Rather than take the […]

Should the Angels pursue Joakim Soria?

Ahhh Joakim, how you have been the source of many baseball fan boners across America. Your time with the Royals was nothing short of fantastically increderiffic. Four years of prime-time excellence, two years with sub 2 ERA's, two more below 3. 60+ innings of pure talent a season, a two time All-Star and easily one […]
