Series Preview: Angels vs. Mariners vs. Clinch

This could be the clinchiest series the Angels ever clinched. They can clinch a playoff berth and the AL West title all in this series. They can also clinch at least a tie for their second-most wins in a season ever at 97. The only thing they can’t clinch is the best record in the AL, […]

Boxscore Breakdown #148: Bringing the heat – Angels 5, Astros 2

Ladies and gentlemen, Jered Weaver is once again bringing the heat. Well, by his standards. In last night’s game, we saw something from Jered that we haven’t seen in quite some time: fastballs “blazing” in at 91 MPH. Not just one, but like several. SEVERAL! This is a huge development. All we’ve heard about the […]

Boxscore Breakdown #147: Back in training – Angels 11, Astros 3

These games of late have really started to feel like Spring Training games for the Halos. After six innings, all the subs start coming in. By the end of the game, there is an entirely new lineup in the field and a pitcher you’ve never heard of on the mound. I guess this is the luxury […]


Series Preview: Angels vs. Astros vs. Gratitude

One of the reasons the Angels were able to completely put the Athletics, and to a lesser extent the Mariners, in the rearview mirror is because they got a nice big helping hand from the Houston Astros. Despite all their supposed awfulness and turmoil, the ‘Stros took two of three from both Oakland and Seattle last week. […]


Second Guessing Scioscia – Week 24: Fine tuning

This isn’t because we dislike Scioscia, in fact, MWAH is officially pro-Scioscia. However, we do realize that he is not infallible and hope to use this series to bring light to the decisions in which he […]

Boxscore Breakdown #145: No cycle for you – Angels 8, Rangers 1

Because the Angels basically have the AL West and the best record in baseball in the bag, the fans are running out of things to care about in these final weeks. Despite it being a farily close game in the early going, the talk was all about Albert Pujols gunning for the cycle. There might […]


Matt Shoemaker, extension candidate?

The Angels are in a really tight luxury tax situation for the next few years, because of that, I’ve suggested before that they probably need to pass on giving a contract extension to Kole Calhoun, despite him being an obvious candidate for such a deal. The potential savings just don’t justify the increase in his salary […]


The Angels should be concerned about Josh Hamilton, but not too much

Yesterday we learned that the Angels are looking for a shoulder to cry on because Josh Hamilton has been crying about his shoulder. At last check, they were “growing concerned” about his health. Another few days, and they should have advanced through the adolescence of their concern to fully mature grownup concern. Whatever shall they do […]
