An entirely too early look at Mike Trout versus high pitches

Mike Trout entered the 2015 with a few different goals: he wanted to swing earlier and more often, he wanted to strikeout less and he wanted to solve his problem with pitches up in the zone. These are goals that in some ways are all in concert with each other and in conflict with each other at […]

Boxscore Breakdown #8: Drew-ined – Rangers 8, Angels 2

Drew Rucinski could’ve been the feelgood story of the early season. Fans were ready to jump on his bandwagon. Then he went and took a big ol’ dump on the mound in his first MLB start and ruined any chance of that happening. It earned the Angels a loss and Rucinski a one-way ticket to […]

The most fascinating fringe Angels prospects

Let me just get this out of the way, I’m blatantly ripping off Carson Cistulli’s “most compelling fringe prospects” idea. It’s a really good idea. We all obsesses over top prospect lists, but it is just so much fun when a guy who barely qualifies as a prospect turns into something special. See Shoemaker, Matt. As […]

Boxscore Breakdown #7: Deficit reduction – Angels 6, Rangers 3

After getting swept at home by the Royals, the Angels were on the precipice of falling into another deep deficit to start their season, a deficit that they’ve only been able to pay their way out once in the last few years. Then they went and had an early deficit to get out of in this game, […]

Angels vs. Rangers Series Preview: Told ya so

What an interesting time for an Angels vs. Rangers series. Right on the heels of the latest round of Moreno-Hamilton animosity, it is time to do battle with Hamilton’s former employer. I’m sure the Rangers and their fans will be totally understanding of the situation the Halos find themselves in. In fact, I do believe they’ve hung some […]

Boxscore Breakdown #6: Royal Pains – Royals 9, Angels 2

This Boxscore Breakdown is entitled “Royal Pains,” which I understand to be some sort of TV show on the USA Network, which I understand to be TV network which people allegedly watch. I’ve never seen this show and am unaware that the USA Network ever showed anything besides Wings re-runs, but it seems like the sort […]

The Angels are greedy, jerks or greedy jerks

The earth. It is scorched. It is salted. Bridges were built upon it specifically so that they could be burnt. There is no going back. The Angels have made it very clear, they’ve had enough of Josh Hamilton and his days as an Angel are done. Arte Moreno hasn’t said exactly that, but he may […]

4/11 (De)Butera Angels lineup

Drew Butera makes his Angels debut. It’s his DeButera. Chris Iannetta gets the night off, but he’ll probably still strikeout twice anyway. C.J. Cron also is conspicuously close to being a platoon that Scioscia refuses to acknowledge as well.

Boxscore Breakdown #4: Devil Magic – Royals 4, Angels 2

Yep, turns out that the Royals still have that devil magic working for them. The Angels cannot beat. It cannot be done. God may be on their side as a team named the Angels, but the Royals have aligned themselves with the Lord of Darkness who possesses far more power. ABANDON ALL HOPE. Royals 4, […]

Angels vs. Royals Series Preview: Revenge of the ALDS

Oh, good. Angels vs.  Royals, so early in the season. Just who I was hoping for the Angels to see. I was really hoping to be forced to relive the tragedy that was the ALDS before the new season even really got going. Do we really have to do this? I really don’t want to […]
