The Angels earned a dose of hope for their up-and-down season, but doing so was a tight squeeze both figuratively and literally. The Halos didn’t generate much offense outside of two Albert Pujols dingers, but strong pitching seemingly was going to make that enough. That was until the bullpen faltered. Fortunately, that faltering included a […]
The June 23rd, 2015 edition of Los Angeles Angels news including no structural damage in Weaver’s hip, Trout takes lead in AL OF All-Star voting and much more…
First, apologies for the delay in posting this. I started a new “real” job this week, so I’m working some schedule stuff out. Bear with me the rest of this week until I get settled. As for this game, the real story was how little,tiny Johnny Giavotella almost hit a big fly. It turns out […]
Houston, we have a problem. The Angels host the first place Astros for the next three games, and this whole thing can go one of three ways. The Angels can either gain a whole bunch of ground on the Colt 45’s, they could continue to tread water, or the could fall even further behind with […]
Angels Player Power Rankings, the one place where you can be sure to see the Angels hitters without fear of them hitting into an untimely double play. Probably. Maybe. I think so. Look, I’m not making any promises here. NOT LISTED: Alfredo Marte (pinch-runners aren’t people)
This podcast marches on. Through injury and sickness, we will continue. The same can’t really be said about Jered Weaver, but we can get to that later. MJ got enough over strep throat that we were able to sit down and hang out on the internet last night to chit chat about the Angels and things involving the Angels. We did not talk about Max Scherzer, therefore his wife owes us $5.
In this week’s episode, we covered the following wonderful news:
- The state of the Angels: Mediocrity for everybody!
- Jered Weaver’s DL trip: Hip inflammation is apparently a thing. Or it is just an excuse to give Weaver a couple of weeks off so the Angels can get a closer look at a minor leaguer. Unless it is Drew Rucinski. They don’t need a closer look at him.
- Albert Pujols is back-ish: In case you missed it, Albert Pujols is playing, like, really well.
- Mike Trout‘s effect on Kole Calhoun: Calhoun is little, kind of. Mike Trout is like his protective big brother. Makes sense that Trout would protect him in the lineup.
- The Good the Bad and the Ugly – 2012 free agent pitchers: This could lead to tears.

The June 22nd, 2015 edition of Los Angeles Angels news including Weaver to DL with hip inflammation, Angels minor league team cancels ‘Caucasian Heritage Night’ and much more…
It was game #69 for the Angels… nice. The game itself, not so nice. That magical Angels offense that came back on ace Sonny Gray couldn’t get anything going against definite non-ace Jesse Hahn. Jered Weaver didn’t do much to make us feel better about his struggles. The bullpen coughed up more inherited runs to help […]
When you go down by five runs to Sonny Gray, you aren’t supposed to come back. That’s basically a death sentence, especially with an offense like that of the Angels. Yet, some way, somehow, the Angels turned everything Gray to Halo Red in one incredible half inning. Could this be a turning point on their season? […]
Game 1: Friday 6:35pm PT – Shoemaker (4-5, 4.85) vs Gray (8-3, 1.60) Game 2: Saturday 1:05pm PT – Weaver (4-7, 4.65) vs Hahn (4-5, 3.62) Game 3: Sunday 1:05pm PT – Richards (7-4, 3.59) vs Kazmir (3-4, 2.84) Here we go again! The Halos are headed into a three game weekend series vs the […]
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. […]
Four days ago the Angels and Diamondbacks embarked on a four-game home-and-home series with each team hovering around the .500 mark. As you might imagine, these two .500 teams split those games and exited from the series still hovering around the .500 mark. It is like the series never happened. Boxscore Breakdowns Game 1: Diamondbacks 7, Angels 3 Game 2: Angels […]
Taylor Featherston and Johnny Giavotella both going yard in the same inning, just like the Angels drew it up. As the Angels continue their search for more offensive production, it was their littlest hitters that provided the most punch (OK, at 6’1″, Featherston isn’t that small, but his production coming to this game was microscopic). […]
The June 19th, 2015 edition of Los Angeles Angels news including Angels remain patient with Joyce, Rasmus to begin rehab assignment and much more…
C.J. Wilson threw eight innings of one-run ball and struck out nine to propel the Los Angeles Angels into the weekend after splitting a four-game home-and-home set against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Rookie Taylor Featherston got things started with his first career home run in the third inning before a five-run sixth inning put the game […]
