How Sweep It Is; Angels giving the fans a show

The Angels are firing on all cylinders, winning 7 of their last 8 games, and it’s all thanks to the likelihood of Calhoun, Marté, and Robinson who help continue their dominant offense going. However, the A’s draw first blood in the first and tried to rally to at least catch the Angels’ 8-run fourth, but fall short and dropped their record to 67-91; meanwhile, the Angels improved...

Was Monday’s game the last time we’ll see Jered Weaver pitch for the Angels?

On Monday night, Jered Weaver was pitching like an absolute madman. He was riding a perfecto through four innings, and ended up just giving up one hit in his 5.0 innings pitched. He was cruising and keeping his Angels team in the running of a close game against the A’s. Then he got pulled at 71 pitches. Turns out, it was his back tightening up that got him lifted. Way to go, back...

It’s a Marté Parté for The Angels; Nolasco Continues to Shine in His Final Start of 2016

The Angels were flexing their muscles in making sure that they will not have another 2-1 game in back-to-back nights, though us fans do not mind a good drama. Of course, there was no drama; just excitement and enthusiasm for many fans who witnessed a 7th-heaven in the home half of the 4th inning, which game Daniel Mengden [the best mustache since Rollie Fingers had] an early exit...

Matt Shoemaker: 2016 Angels Pitcher of the Year?

Today is Matt Shoemaker day...or rather, today is Matt Shoemaker’s birthday, so what better time to show some love to the bearded pitching maestro? Shoemaker had an insanely rough start to the 2016 season, statistically speaking, and he had an even rougher END to his 2016 season, getting-hit-in-head-with-line-drive-and-sent-to-the-hospital speaking. Yes, Shoemaker suffered that...

Pujols Go-Ahead Line Driver Edges the A’s

The Anaheim Angels are ending a disastrous 2016 season on a winning note, with another Halo victory to bump up to their 70th victory of the season and bumping the Athletics one step closer to losing 90 games for the second consecutive season. Unfortunately for Jered David Weaver, he pitched for exactly five innings and threw 71 pitches only to have his back given out. He did, however...

Jered Weaver contemplates future after Angels beat A's 2-1

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) If Jered Weaver is in his final week with the Los Angeles Angels, the veteran right-hander will try to finish his 11 seasons the right way. And if he returns to his only big-league team next year, Weaver has a strong finish to build upon. Weaver pitched five scoreless innings of one-hit ball before leaving with lower-back tightness, and the Angels beat the...

An All Too Early Look at What we can expect from the Angels this offseason

The end of the season is mercifully approaching for the Los Angeles Angels.  The roster itself is actually a solid one, worthy of contention in any given year.  There’s just no way any team could work around injuries to a Garrett Richards, Andrew Heaney, Nick Tropeano, Tyler Skaggs led rotation and find success.  A General Manager should always plan for injuries, and clearly...

Mike Trout and the Need for Logical Consistency

On Monday night, Ken Rosenthal wrote something of a plea to his fellow BBWAA members; stop looking for reasons to give the MVP award to anyone besides Mike Trout. My fear is that in 20 years people are going to say, “Trout led the majors in combined OPS-plus from 2012 to ’16 and won only one MVP in those five seasons? What the heck were the writers thinking?” Shame on us if...

After the Angels intentionally walked Rangers catcher Jonathan Lucroy, there was a break in the action because home plate umpire Pat Hoberg wanted to see what was going on down the third base line. Scioscia...

Anthony Rendon Is No Mike Trout, But

We can all agree that Mike Trout is probably the best player in baseball, right? And if Mike Trout is the best player in baseball, that means Anthony Rendon is not the best player in baseball, right? OK, so it’s settled. Rendon is good, but he’s no Trout. That being said, let’s have fun! This year, 188 players have batted at least 400 times. Of those, 90 have a walk rate that...
