What to expect from the Angels at the Winter Meetings

The Winter Meetings draw nigh (you’re welcome for my avoidance of the “Winter Meetings are coming” trope) and the Angels have begun their preparations for them. Or at least we think they have. The Halos have been extremely quiet over the last few weeks, so we can only assume they are busy drawing up their […]

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim v Toronto Blue Jays

Browsing the non-tender bargain bin

The non-tenders have been announced! It is that wonderful time of year in which all of baseball suddenly turns into an American Picker, sorting through the unwanted droppings of the rest of the league in search of some turd that they can polish into something shiny and pretty. Every fan base thinks their team can do […]

LA Angels arbitration eligibles: extend, settle or non-tender?

Tomorrow is the non-tender deadline in MLB. That means the Angels have a lot of tough decisions to make. OK, a few tough decisions to make. Eh, alright, they have maybe like one decision to make that might be considered a little difficult. But let’s go ahead and pretend that all of these decisions are […]

Questioning Vinnie Pestano’s 2014 season

Once a rising star in the Cleveland bullpen, the Tribe pretty much gave up on Vinnie Pestano. Well, one man’s trash could be another man’s treasure. In this case, the Angels have positioned themselves to be the garbageman benefactor. Wasn’t Pestano supposed to be the “closer of the future” in Cleveland? He sure was, but the […]

Questioning John McDonald’s 2014 season

Am I really going to spill digital ink about John McDonald? Is it really worth spending time reviewing the season of a guy who was more coach than player? I guess we’re about to find out. Why is John McDonald? The best I can tell, McDonald existed on the Angels roster because of their desire to […]

The Angels Without C.J. Wilson

I’m a fan. I’m guessing that if you’re reading this, you’re probably a fan too. What do fans do in November when games aren’t be played and your team isn’t exactly headlining over at MLBTR? You make inferences, educated guesses as to what next year’s team will look like. For the past three years, there […]

MLB: Los Angeles Angels at Oakland Athletics

Questioning Jason Grilli’s 2014 season

Challenge trades don’t get made very much in MLB anymore. When they do get made, seldom do they work so that one team wins the deal in such lopsided fashion, yet that is exactly what happened when the Angels swapped Ernesto Frieri straight up for Jason Grilli. How great did the Grilli-Frieri trade turn out to be? […]

Questioning Grant Green’s 2014 season

2014 looked like it was going to be a big season for Grant Green, but he never really got much of a chance. What happened to the player that people were so excited about when he was acquired at the end of the 2013 season? Was Green’s 2014 a failure? Green’s stats were just fine. He had […]
