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 […]

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 […]

Series Takeaways: Angels Ride Power, Pitching to Red Sox Sweep

I can’t believe I’m writing this, but… God bless the Boston Red Sox. Any worries about the Angels getting off to yet another slow start to their second half were quickly abated with the help of a Boston club that decided just to not show up at all for the four-game set. The walk-off heroics […]

Boxscore Breakdown #92: Double your fun – Angels 7, Red Sox 3

Doubleheaders are fun, they are even more fun when your team wins both games. They are even more fun than that when sweeping the doubleheader also means sweeping the series. They are even more fun than that when the team getting swept is the Red Sox. I guess what I’m saying is that this doubleheader was […]
