GRAPHIC: Trout, A-Rod have similar stats through first 570 MLB games

The numbers don't lie.

The Scioscia vs. Dipoto feud springs eternal

Here we go again. Scioscia vs. Dipoto, round three… or is it four? Five maybe? I’m positive it is no more than six. That’s really the problem here, isn’t it? We are three and a half years into the Jerry Dipoto era in Anaheim and, based on recent reports, Jerry and his manager still aren’t, wait for it… on the same page. Maybe that’s the problem though.

Angels Pitcher Hector Santiago Has an Amazing Autograph Collection

I always wondered what young baseball players felt like when they took the diamond against some of the best the game has to offer. Are they awestruck? Do they attempt to block out their previous fandom? For Los Angeles Angels pitcher Hector Santiago, it’s all about living in the moment. He might not be star-struck, but he surely is appreciating his time in the Majors. This much...

The Nature of Albert Pujols’ Revival

Watching all-time great baseball players age is both a frustrating and fascinating experience.

Should the Los Angeles Angels be better than this?

Maybe it’s karma for how they treated Josh Hamilton, but whatever the reason, the Los Angeles Angels are a .500 when many thought they’d be more competitive. But going forward, I see them continuing to be a .500 team for two reasons: their hitters have been incredibly unlucky while their starting pitchers have been incredibly lucky.
