Boxscore Breakdown #156: Unappreciated – Rangers 2, Angels 1

This was supposed to be Fan Appreciation Day, but it didn’t quite work out that way, did it? Not only was it the lowest attended home game of the year for the Angels, but the Halos themselves didn’t do much to show their appreciation. Oh, sure, there was probably some in-park stuff that the PR […]

Boxscore Breakdown #155: Weaver Believer – Angels 8, Rangers 5

Weaver went and did it again. He pitched well and did so with that little extra notch of velocity. After his previous start, I thought it might’ve been a fluke, but he was able to repeat and sustain the change in this one. After the game, he claimed it came from his shoulder feeling healthy […]

Boxscore Breakdown #154: Hector Blantiago – Rangers 12, Angels 3

It was another disaster of a start for Hector Santiago. Or should we start to call him Hector Blantiago? It was so frustrating that I am struggling to put it into words, but sometimes actions speak louder than words… Yeah, that sums it pretty well. Run Expectancy Rundown The starters hit like they were still […]

My week kind of got away from me, so no time for a full blown preview. We are going to make this one a quickie. LAST TIME ON ANGELS VS. RANGERS… The Angels swept the Rangers because the Rangers are just the worst. GHOST OF ANGELS PAST The Angels ain’t afraid of no ghosts because […]


Second Guessing Scioscia – Week 25: Playoff preparation

Welcome to Second-Guessing Scioscia, our look back at some of the questionable decisions that Mike Scioscia made in the last week. This isn’t because we dislike Scioscia, in fact, MWAH is officially pro-Scioscia. However, we do realize that he is not infallible and hope to use this series to bring light to the decisions in which he […]

Boxscore Breakdown #153: Salt Lake Bees of Anaheim – Mariners 3, Angels 1

There’s nothing like some crucial September baseball games with playoff implications. That is unless you’ve already clinched your playoff spot and don’t care anymore. In that case, you run out the lineup and starting pitcher for your Triple-A team. It wasn’t exactly high drama and I suspect a lot of Angels fans took the night off as […]


Can the Angels use the “bullpen day” in the playoffs?

I was planning on writing this post for about a week now. It was going to be more in the vein of wondering whether or not going with the “bullpen day” starter could hypothetically work, knowing full well that the Angels would never dare try it. But thanks to the oblique injury to Matt Shoemaker, this […]

Boxscore Breakdown #152: CHAMPS – Angels 5, Mariners 0

Here is all you need to know about this games… Run Expectancy Rundown OK, fine, I’ll do a little analysis as well. The Angels were pretty quiet right up until Chris Denorfia matadored that ball in right followed by C.J. Cron (who honestly should have been pinch-hit for by Josh Hamilton) launched a three-run bomb. […]

Boxscore Breakdown #151: Whatever – Mariners 13, Angels 2

Look, the Angels got throttled. Everyone in the bullpen pitched incredibly poorly. Nobody hit. Even Mike Trout couldn’t field. This was just one of those games. They happen to every team every so often. With so little to play for right now, can you really blame the Angels for taking their eye off the ball (literally and […]


No, Josh Hamilton won’t disrupt the Angels chemistry

Yesterday, Josh Hamilton made a surprise return to the Angels lineup. This is a good thing. Let me repeat that. THIS IS A GOOD THING. For some reason, there are folks out there who do NOT think that this is a good thing. Leading up to his return, anytime I posted an update to Twitter […]

Boxscore Breakdown #150: The drought is over – Angels 8, Mariners 1

The drought is over! No, you still can’t water your lawn, but you can go out on that dried out lawn and jump for joy that the Angels will be returning to the playoffs after missing out the last four seasons. Maybe you can even water your lawn with a celebratory champagne shower. It might be more prudent […]
