If/when they fix it, I’ll come back and put the graphs in… probably. Well done, Angels, you now have no margin for error. In a series where people won’t stop talking about the poor […]


Last night in Josh Hamilton hate

Josh Hamilton had… let’s be nice and say a “rough” game last night. This, of course, was just about what we should’ve expected. It turns out that hitting a baseball is hard when you are fighting through injury and have barely swung a bat in the last three weeks. It is for this reason that […]


Second Guessing Angels-Royals ALDS Game 1: #Soshted

Tonight, we saw the birth of a new era. The #Yosted era is dead. Long live the #Soshted era! What bloody trainwreck. In a game where there was barely any offense, Scioscia somehow managed to interject himself into every situation, and not in a good way. Sadly, this is exactly what I feared he might do. […]

Predictions and panics for the Angels in the ALDS

Angels Players Power Rankings – End of regular season edition

This is the final Angels Player Power Rankings for the regular season. It is NOT the last edition of the year though. My plan is to do one at the end of each playoff round. Hopefully that means I get to do three of those. After that, I’ll do one big blowout edition after the season is […]

It’s all over, folks. The regular season is done and the Angels are moving on to the next challenge. Sure, they ended the regular season with a bit of a whimper after getting swept by the Mariners, but that isn’t really irrelevant. Get worked up about momentum if you want, but the Halos now have […]
