Boxscore Breakdown #94: Break time – Angels 10, Rangers 7

Time for the All-Star break, just in time to force the red-hot Angels to cool their heels for a few days. Momentum is for suckers, right? Run Expectancy Rundown Oh, so many doubles. Doubles as far as the eye can see! OK, so six doubles, but that’s still a lot. Mike Trout was the only […]

Boxscore Breakdown #93: Contagious – Angels 5, Rangers 2

They say that hitting is contagious. That must be true because the Angels won this game on the back of two of the more unlikely bats in the lineup. Hank Conger, in particular, has finally shown some signs of life during this recent offensive surge by the Halos. You know what else is contagious? The […]

Boxscore Breakdown #92: Snub this! – Angels 3, Rangers 0

You shouldn’t snub Garrett Richards from the All-Star Game. You wouldn’t like him when he’s snubbed. The Rangers certainly didn’t.

Boxscore Breakdown #90: Love-Hate – Angels 8, Blue Jays 7

It was the best of games. It was the worst of games. It was, well, a game. By all rights this should’ve been a very exciting game. It was close, featured a late-inning go-ahead homer from a superstar and multiple lead changes. However, it also lasted almost four hours, had four replay reviews, 12 pitchers […]


Joe Smith: “Proven Closer” or placeholder?

Before the season began, I did an Angels preview for the good folks over at RazzBall. I mention that not to brag but because I can’t help but remember how they asked if Ernesto Frieri would survive as the Angels closer. It hadn’t really occurred to me until that moment that Frieri’s shakiness had become […]
