Boxscore Breakdown #101: Settle down – Astros 3, Angels 0

Look, we all know what happened in this game. We all know what happened in this series. We should all know that there is no cause for alarm, emphasis  on “should.” Not nearly enough Angels fans demonstrated that after this game as the panic from the fan base was palpable. This was no doubt a […]


Is Kaleb Cowart A Top Prospect Again?

The Angels have a lot of exciting pitching prospects. Andrew Heaney and Sean Newcomb are the only arms that get any real national hype, but aren’t the lone pitchers of promise in the system. Guys like Nick Tropeano, Nate Smith, Chris Ellis, Jeremy Rhoades, and Tyler DeLoach are solid in their own right, and (along […]

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 […]

Series Takeaways: Mike Trout Demolishes Rangers, Rest of Angels Sort of Show Up

For a minute there, it looked like the frustratingly mediocre Angels of the season’s first three months were making an unwelcome comeback.
