Series Preview: Angels vs. Twins vs. Annoyed

I’m already annoyed at this series. I’m annoyed that the Twins are good and I honestly have no idea how they are good. No team that has prominently featured Mike Pelfrey, Tommy Milone and Ricky Nolasco in their rotaiton should be any good. I’m annoyed that Torii Hunter is on the Twins, which is going […]

Series Takeaways: Angels Ride Power, Pitching to Red Sox Sweep

I can’t believe I’m writing this, but… God bless the Boston Red Sox. Any worries about the Angels getting off to yet another slow start to their second half were quickly abated with the help of a Boston club that decided just to not show up at all for the four-game set. The walk-off heroics […]

Angels Trade Wishlist: Recreating A Catcher Platoon

With the trade deadline fast approaching, the writers at MWAH thought we’d all get together and do a roundtable of the trades we would like to see happen and call it our Angels Trade Wishlist. This was going to be one piece, but apparently we are all so amped for the deadline that each and […]

Boxscore Breakdown #92: Double your fun – Angels 7, Red Sox 3

Doubleheaders are fun, they are even more fun when your team wins both games. They are even more fun than that when sweeping the doubleheader also means sweeping the series. They are even more fun than that when the team getting swept is the Red Sox. I guess what I’m saying is that this doubleheader was […]

Angels Player Power Rankings – Week 16

Because of the All-Star break and the rain (Rain? Seriously? WTF?!) there hasn’t been much movement in the Angels Player Power Rankings. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t read them though. Let’s be honest, we all know the rankings are totally subjective and arbitrary and really just an excuse for me to make pithy remarks about […]

DENVER, CO - AUGUST 23:  Charlie Blackmon #19 of the Colorado Rockies hits a double against the Miami Marlins at Coors Field on August 23, 2014 in Denver, Colorado. The Rockies defeated the Marlins 5-4 in 13 innings.  (Photo by Trevor Brown, Jr./Getty Images)

Angels Trade Wishlist: Raid the Rockies

Boxscore Breakdown #90: Bullet time – Angels 3, Red Sox 0

Every time Garrett Richards has a rough outing and fans start getting a little concerned, he goes and has a start like this. I like to call it Bullet Time. I’ve never called it that before, but I will starting one sentence ago. Bullet Time! Richards has had his ups and downs this year leading […]

Angels Second Half Questions

The Angels entered the second half of the season with a slim lead over Houston for first place in a surprisingly mediocre, yet competitive,  AL West. It is a bit of a shock in itself that the Angels are even in first place at all, given that until their 7-2 road trip before the All-Star […]

Boxscore Breakdown #89: The Hangover – Angels 1, Red Sox 0

For anyone worried about the Angels losing all of their momentum because of the All-Star break (raises own hand), this game was highly concerning for eight and a half innings. It was particularly concerning for the first six innings when the Halos were getting no-hit. But like all problems in life, Mike Trout fixed it. The rest […]

Series Preview: Angels vs. Red Sox vs. Cold Start

Complete this sentence: The Angels go into the All-Star break red hot and emerge from it… Your response was probably something similar to “fall on their face” because that is typically what unfolds in this scenario for the Halos. Last year they won 15 of 17 headed into the break and emerged from the break by […]

Second Guessing Scioscia – Will the Scioscia play now that Dipoto is away?

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. […]
