Angels can't find the clutch, lose to Rangers 4-1

Tonight's game was close, and the Angels went 0-7 with RISP. That's a recipe for sadness. Angels 1 Rangers 4 Hey, I remember this team! This was the team that we saw throughout the end of April and the beginning of May. This was the team that would have LOBster fests on the regular, and would make starting pitchers either be perfect, or be losers. No two ways about it; tonight...

Despite better offensive numbers when he plays first base, Angels' Albert Pujols says he's fine with more games at DH

ARLINGTON, Texas – Albert Pujols shrugged off the question, but the numbers, at least through the first eight-plus weeks of this season, remain rather clear. He hits better when he plays first base, as he did here Monday when he drove a two-run...

Mike Trout is once again on top of the baseball world

Remember earlier this season, when Mike Trout wasn't the best player on the planet anymore? By that, I mean he was hitting a shade under .300 while Bryce Harper, Manny Machado and some of the other MLB youth brigade were savaging opposing pitching and lighting up scoreboards. Harper was especially worrisome, because the kid was launching dingers left and right, and with each big...

DraftKings: In Trout We Trust

While Bryce Harper is ice cold, Major League Baseball's other superstar, Mike Trout, is heating up. Over the last seven days, Trout is batting .370 with two home runs and gets a cake matchup on Tuesday night. It may be tough to fit Trout into your lineup given his price tag, but it's going to be worth it. Trout is like a tall glass of water. He's a beacon of light on the hill. A...

Tim Lincecum is Worth the Gamble to the Los Angeles Angles

The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim have been suffering at the hands of their injury-ridden bullpen. Left-hander C.J. Wilson’s run-in with shoulder tendonitis has placed him on the unavailable list, alongside Craig Gentry and Cliff Pennington to name a few. Because the AL West is still anyone’s game at this point in the season, the Angels need pitchers if they hope to remain in...

Diagnosing the Angels: Mike Trout Can’t Do It All

Imagine having the best baseball player in the league and it mattering very little. That’s largely been the case for the Los Angeles Angels since 2012 when Mike Trout made his debut. In that time, he’s taken home the Rookie of the Year and was named the AL’s Most Valuable Player. He’s finished runner-up for the latter three times, and if Manny Machado has anything to say...

Angels GM says team has not discussed trading Mike Trout

No, folks, Mike Trout is not going to be traded any time soon. With the Los Angeles Angels off to an 18-22 start and looking nothing like a contender, some outsiders raised the question of whether the team would entertain trading Trout for a huge prospect haul to allow them to rebuild. Perhaps, they reason, the Angels would be willing to move their star center fielder. So, Angels...

Yesterday we kicked this series off by examining what a slight retooling of the Angels roster could look like over the coming year. In Part II, we look into what going a new direction might mean for the Angels. First, let’s understand what a “New Direction” means, beyond the literal sense, and when a team might find itself in need of one. Put simply, a “New Direction...

Anatomy of an Angels Rebuild: The Slight Retooling

Just under a year ago I posted an article of a similar kind to this one, outlining who the Angels would keep and who the Angels would shuffle out of the organization after 2015. The purpose was to highlight what a rebuilt offense could look like, but most of it was vanilla—I’d stated the obvious and missed on that which I could not predict. What I didn’t do in that article...

Los Angeles Angels, Santiago complete road sweep of Mariners

On Sunday, the Los Angeles Angels completed a three game sweep of the first place Seattle Mariners. “King Felix” Hernandez looked to continue his early-season dominance, but could not contain the visiting Angels nor avoid the sweep at home. The Angels (16-21) currently sit in third in the AL West, but a series sweep like this could push the Halos in the right direction. Hector...
