Boxscore Breakdown #132: Well-oiled – Angels 6, Marlins 1

After a few weeks of scratching and scraping for runs, dealing with some bullpen hiccups and sorting through rotation uncertainty, the Angels once again seem to be playing like a well-oiled machine. The offense is hitting well again. The starting pitching (except for the currently empty Richards-vacated spot) has been strong the last few times through the rotation. […]

The Angels are holding themselves hostage with the luxury tax

As everyone keeps insisting on telling us, the Angels really need some starting pitching help. Yes, we know. We are fully aware of this need. It is the most obvious thing in the history of obvious things. Yet, for some reason, the Angels have yet to make a move or place a claim on a starting pitcher. […]

Boxscore Breakdown #131: Chum – Angels 8, Marlins 2

The Angels got speared by the Marlins in the series opener, but in this game they turned the Fish into Chum with another explosive offensive performance. While the previous game was unwatchable, this game had me hooked. With the win, the Angels keep their head above water in the AL West race as the A’s continue […]

Boxscore Breakdown #130: LeBlech – Marlins 7, Angels 1

Yeah, go ahead and trade for Colon, Feldman or Cahill whenever you’re ready, Jerry. The great Wade LeBlanc experiment appears to be dead on arrival. As much as we talk about only need six starts from this rotation spot, the Angels can’t afford to have five more starts like this one. That would mean five […]

Can any September call-ups actually help the Angels?

For some reason, I’ve always had an affinity for the September call-up period. I really shouldn’t because there is seldom ever a case that a September call-up makes a huge impact. The only time I can think of was when when K-Rod got added to the roster in 2002. Come to think of it, that’s probably why […]

Series Preview: Angels vs. Marlins vs. Teen Titans

We now interrupt this incredibly compelling and tense playoff race to bring you a pretty cool series featuring two of the most talented and exciting young players in the game. I was all set to deride the idea of the Angels having to play an interleague series right in the middle of a pennant race, but […]

Boxscore Breakdown #128: Passed by – Athletics 2, Angels 1

The Angels and the A’s playing a one-run game is nothing new. The Angels losing on a passed ball, however, is. This loss really hurt. Not only did they lose the game in a really stupid and frustrating way, but they also threw away one of C.J. Wilson‘s best starts in month. Maybe we should […]

Boxscore Breakdown #127: First blood – Athletics 5, Angels 3

The playoffs are over a month away, but this game sure felt like the post-season. It is a complete cliche, but this game very much had a playoff atmosphere. Every play seemed to be of the utmost importance. The players certainly appeared to be taking it more seriously. Heck, even the notoriously sparse A’s fans came […]
