Series Preview: Angels vs. Red Sox vs. the Green Monster

As bad as the Angels offense has been this season — and it’s been really, really bad — I think Boston’s has been the bigger disappointment. Most projection systems had the Red Sox coasting to the AL East title on the back of the league’s best offense. It didn’t matter how underwhelming the rotation was, […]

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.

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 […]

Arguing with ourselves: The wretched Angels offense

Welcome to the 2015 version of the Los Angeles Angels. I’ll bet most of the fans coming into this season didn’t expect to see the Angels offense be the team’s largest question mark.

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 […]
