Series Preview: Angels vs. Rangers vs. BOOOOOOO!!!!

Let’s just get this out of the way. Josh Hamilton is returning to Anaheim for the first time. It is going to be a big deal even if Hamilton continues to pretend that he has never thought about the Angels since the moment he was traded. He may have had the Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless […]

Second Guessing Scioscia – No accounting for pitch counts

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. In the history of this column, we have never once struggled for content. However, we aren’t anti-Scioscia. The official MWAH stance on Scioscia is pro-Scioscia overall. […]

Series Takeaways: Angels Keep Rolling, Take Two From Twins

They are an MLB-best 16–4 over their last 20 games, and an MLB-best 21–9 in their last 30. The pitching staff’s streak of allowing three runs or fewer is now up to eight straight […]

Boxscore Breakdown #95: One mistake – Twins 3, Angels 0

Sometimes the margin for error in baseball is razor thin. Garrett Richards made one mistake all day and the Angels lost because of it. Well, that’s not totally true. They also lost because Ervin Santana didn’t make a single mistake, not one the Angels took advantage of, anyway. Baseball, man. Twins 3, Angels 0 Run Expectancy […]

MWAHdcast – A Moment with the Monkey: #HUGWATCH Watch

In a world where there were no trades… there was only #HUGWATCH!

Hooray! The trades are finally happening. They aren’t Angels trades, but at least the market is finally starting to move. In this episode of A Moment With the Monkey, we discuss if and when the Angels will finally start generating some trades (and hugs) of their own.

Why the Angels need to buy cheap and not rent a new left fielder

To buy or rent? For the Angels at this coming trade deadline, there shouldn’t be much question. The combination of their bloated payroll and the increasingly thin free agent crop should have the Angels looking to find a left fielder of the present and future rather than one that can just pitch in for three […]

What if the Angels traded Mike Trout?

Step away from the ledge. Seriously. The Los Angeles Angels are not going to trade Mike Trout. We all know that. Other teams know that. However, what if they did? What kind of package(s) of prospects, players, and other stuff would teams be willing to give up in exchange for the best player in baseball? […]

Boxscore Breakdown #94: No slowing down – Angels 5, Twins 2

A banged up Mike Trout? Not a problem. Losing David Freese to a fracture finger? A mere inconvenience. Matt Joyce still in the lineup for some reason? Even that can’t slow down the Angels. Angels 5, Twins 2 Run Expectancy Rundown Johnny Giavotella did a great job of setting the table and Kole Calhoun did […]

KANSAS CITY, MO - OCTOBER 05: C.J. Wilson #33 of the Los Angeles Angels pitches against the Kansas City Royals in the first inning during Game Three of the American League Division Series at Kauffman Stadium on October 5, 2014 in Kansas City, Missouri.  (Photo by Jamie Squire/Getty Images)

The perfect trade deadline to trade C.J. Wilson

Trade deadline deals are usually pretty standard: Contending Team A trades one or more prospects to Non-Contending Team Z for one or more established big leaguers. That is the way it has worked for decades. It doesn’t look like it is going to work that way this year, though. This year, there are very few […]

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 […]

Series Preview: Angels vs. Twins vs. Annoyed

I’m already annoyed at this series. I’m annoyed that the Twins are good and I honestly have no idea how they are good. No team that has prominently featured Mike Pelfrey, Tommy Milone and Ricky Nolasco in their rotaiton should be any good. I’m annoyed that Torii Hunter is on the Twins, which is going […]
