Angels vs. Rockies Series Preview: Precious CarGo

The Rockies are coming to town and bringing some precious cargo with them in the form of Carlos “CarGo” Gonzalez. See what I did there? You see what I did there. Normally, playing the Rockies isn’t really worth noting, but bloggers, fans and reporters across the land have all come to the same conclusion that CarGo […]


SITE ANNOUNCEMENT: Changes to Monkey with a Halo

Greetings, everyone. I’m here to let you know that Monkey with a Halo is changing. I’d call it an evolution, but then I’d have to rename the site Australopithecus with a Halo and that’s too hard to type all the time. Call it whatever you want, but the changes are not only coming, they are already […]

C.J. Wilson: Not as painful to watch this season

For the last three-plus seasons, C.J. Wilson has done everything that he possibly can to infuriate, enrage and baffle Angels fans. In 2012, he was very good for the first half of the season, then practically useless for the remainder of the year. In 2013, he was good all year. In 2014, his starts led […]

The Angels Player Power Rankings get a bit of a shake up this week with more and more Angels players actually not being terrible. What a novel idea? Not Listed: Drew Butera (not an Angel anymore), Ryan Mattheus (misses the cut on account of spelling his surname oddly)

Boxscore Breakdown #32: Mother’s Day – Angels 3, Astros 1

These Mother’s Day games are always weird to watch. I’m all for the breast cancer awareness pink undershirts, bats, gloves and what not, but you have to admit, it makes for a weird aesthetic. The pink is so prevalent that it throws off both team’s color schemes. It isn’t like the dumb Fourth of July […]

Boxscore Breakdown #30: Dream or Weaver? – Angels 2, Astros 0

Am I dreaming or did Jered Weaver throw a complete game shutout? I’m not kidding, that happened, right? Less than a week ago we were all beginning rough outlines for our eulogy to Jered’s career, but then he comes out and does this. And, I almost hesitate to say this, but I think it kind of […]

Second Guessing Scioscia – What’s up with that?

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. […]

Boxscore Breakdown #29: Pay no attention – Astros 3, Angels 2

Pay no attention to the outs in the inning. Pay no attention to the ball coming right at you. Pay no attention to the closer who hasn’t pitched well all week. What a miserable way to lose, he said for the eighth time this season. The Angels went from riding the high of two straight […]
