Questioning David Freese’s 2014 season

Today, I am starting a new series for the offseason because I clearly don’t do enough offseason series (i.e. top prospects, player projections, free agency preview). This series will functionally be a season in review for each player, but I’m not going to bother with all the basic info. You watch the Angels, you know this […]


A look back at the moves Jerry Dipoto did NOT make

The Josh Hamilton situation is getting toxic

When Josh Hamilton signed a five-year, $125 million contract with the Angels two years ago, the contract was not well received.
