Would the Angels be better off without Josh Hamilton?

As you surely heard yesterday, Josh Hamilton is likely to miss the start of the season due to shoulder surgery. We’re probably only talking about him missing 10 to 20 games, but the way the Twittersphere is reacting, you’d think the Angels announced that Hamilton is having career-ending arm amputation. As far as they are concerned, this […]

Considering a Huston Street extension

With their free agent shopping done, all their trades settled and just one arbitration case left to deal with, the Angels front office has turned their attention to talking contract extensions with some of their players. This isn’t nearly the sexy topic it was last season when they were talking extension with Mike Trout, but we’ll try […]

Spring Training a great opportunity for cheap tickets and fun atmosphere for Angels fans

The 2014 Los Angeles Angels season was one of disappointment, with high expectations cut short by a team of destiny. The Angels finished the regular season with the best record in baseball, but were swept by the World Series runner up Kansas City Royals in the ALDS. Fortunately, the Angels are in position to compete […]

LA Angels Prospects Countdown #1: Andrew Heaney

He cost the Angels Howie Kendrick, but as one of the top left-handed pitching prospects in all of baseball, Andrew Heaney should be worth the price. He’s the top prospect in the Halos farm system and potentially a big part of the 2015 rotation. Andrew Heaney 10 words or less: One of the best pitching prospects […]

LA Angels Prospects Countdown #2: Sean Newcomb

The Angels finally got a chance to draft in the first half of the first round and their reward was Sean Newcomb. With advanced skills and a high ceiling, that is a reward that the Angels can build around for years to come. Sean Newcomb 10 words or less: Angels shiny new prospect has the stuff to dominate. […]

The absurdity of Josh Hamilton’s goals

Josh Hamilton has set some very lofty goals for himself this season. Actually, “lofty” isn’t the right word. Absurd? Ridiculous? Delusional? Any of these adjectives work just fine for the fantastical target that Josh Hamilton has set for himself of a .300 batting average, 30 homers and 100 RBIs in 2015. Josh, however, believes those […]


LA Angels Prospects Countdown #3: Roberto Baldoquin

Nobody seems to know much about Roberto Baldoquin, but the Angels paid an exorbitant sum to secure his services. Let’s hope they know what they are doing. We’re assuming they do, so Baldoquin checks in at #3 on our countdown based entirely on how much the Angels paid him. Roberto Baldoquin In 10 words or […]

LA Angels Prospects Countdown #4: Nick Tropeano

For some reason the Astros were willing to part with Nick Tropeano so that they could land a back-up catcher. The Halos were more than happy to take him off their hands and maybe even have him be a big contributor in the majors this season. Nick Tropeano 10 words or less: Great command, bugs-bunny changeup. Does […]
