Angels prospects that deserve a promotion

Promoting prospects can be a tricky thing.   Sometimes, the numbers don’t matter, you simply promote to fill a need. Other times, a player might show something that isn’t showing up in the numbers, and still others, the numbers show almost exactly what’s going on. The Angels have their fair share of prospects that fall under […]

Angels Trade Wishlist: Reuniting with K-Rod

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 […]


The First Angel All-Star Starters, by Position

Counting Mike Trout and Albert Pujols this year, there have now been 117 Angels selected to the American League All-Star team since the franchise fielded its first team in 1961.  Do you think you could name the first Angel player to be a member of the starting squad at each position?  I’ll warn you, right […]

Not only did the club best the Mariners to move into sole possession of first place in the AL West, they also gained a third All-Star when Hector Santiago was named to the squad to replace an exhausted Sonny Gray. Santiago is […]

Angels Player Power Rankings – All-Star Break Edition

It’s a special All-Star Break Edition of the Angels Player Power Rankings! What’s so special about it? Nothing really. It just happens to be that I am publishing this during the All-Star Break.

Boxscore Breakdown #88: Little League – Angels 10, Mariners 3

I took my six-year old and her friend from her T-ball team to this game in an effort to show them what a real baseball game was like. The Mariners apparently didn’t get the memo because a Little League game broke out with the Mariners throwing and kicking the ball all over the place. Now my […]

Boxscore Breakdown #87: Nobody’s home – Mariners 5, Angels 0

The Astros lost. The Angels just had to win to move into first place. Opportunity was knocking. And knocking. And knocking. The Angels, however, weren’t home to answer the door. Or maybe they were home, but on the toilet and figured it was probably just a Jehovah’s Witness, so they ignored the knocks. If it […]

Boxscore Breakdown #85: Hail to the King – Mariners 7, Angels 2

The Angels have been really good lately. Unfortunately for them, Felix Hernandez has been even better pretty much since he was conceived. As a result, the Angels winning streak is no more. There’s no shame in that though, he’s the king. Mariners 7, Angels 2 Run Expectancy Rundown Despite three days off, C.J. Cron continued […]
