What will Jerry Dipoto do?

Earlier this week, I detailed what I would do if I were the GM of the Los Angeles Angels this offseason. As brilliant as my plan might be, apparently people would rather know what the “real” GM of the Angels has planned for this offseason. Yeah, apparently because Jerry Dipoto is “actually employed” by the […]


Questioning Howie Kendrick’s 2014 season

2014 might have been the best season of Howie Kendrick‘s career. None of his numbers really jump off the page, but when you look at all the different aspects of his game, he’s never been more complete. Where did his biggest improvement come from? Kendrick has always been a good defender, but he was pretty […]


Questioning Kevin Jepsen’s 2014 season

The reliever that Angels fans loved to hate had the audacity to go out and actually pitch really well this season. What’s up with that, Jepsen? Bullpen whipping boys aren’t supposed to work hard, dedicate themselves to their game and turn into a high quality reliever. We’re going to have to investigate this further. Is […]


The Monkey’s plans for the Angels offseason

Each offseason since 2009, I have written this column, detailing my plan for what the Angels should do to improve the roster. Each offseason since 2009, the Angels have been blatantly ignoring my plan and they haven’t won a single playoff game in that time. Coincidence? I think not! Fine, if that’s really how you […]


Questioning Mike Trout’s 2014 season

Question Trout? Is that even legal? Apparently it is because that is exactly what I am going to do. Or at least that is what I am going to attempt to do because there is a pretty good chance that the baseball gods will smite me with a lightning bolt before I finish writing this artic- […]

Questioning Jered Weaver’s 2014 season

Jered Weaver somehow had one of the worst season of his career and gave us hope for his future all at the same time. How did he do that? No, seriously, I’m asking you how he did that. Is everyone aware that Jered Weaver isn’t an ace anymore? That’s easy: no. I wrote about how […]


Questioning Chris Iannetta’s 2014 season

He didn’t get much credit for it, but Chris Iannetta turned in one heck of a season, at least offensively. He nearly beat out Mike Trout for the best OBP on the team and once again established himself as the primary catcher in the ever-changing Mike Scioscia catching depth chart. When did Iannetta become such […]

Angels offseason acquisition targets

Yesterday, we looked at what the Angels need this offseason. That’s great. Now we just need to figure out how to fill those needs. Fortunately, I’ve got just the blog post for that. It is almost like I planned it that way or something. Weird, right? Anyway, let’s start scouring this pisspoor free agent market […]

Questioning Joe Smith’s 2014 season

Joe Smith was the reliever with the pedestrian name but the excellent numbers in 2014. Despite a very impressive year, Smith still appears to be flying under the radar. But maybe that is for the best since it seems like he might have been pitching well over his head. Should the Angels have signed Smith […]
