The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim and closer Huston Street desperately tried to blow what was a 6-0 lead to the Oakland Athletics on Thursday afternoon.

Angels' Wilson has fluid drained from elbow - but he isn't concerned

C.J. Wilson's relationship with his left elbow is extensive - the pitcher has had a number of procedures done on it over the years, including Tommy John surgery in 2003.  Perhaps that's why the Los Angeles Angels lefty isn't too concerned with having fluid drained from it, as he did this week in relation to some soreness he felt in a recent outing.  The fluid was drained after...

Benefits of bringing Hamilton back outweigh concerns

What are the Texas Rangers thinking in making a trade for Josh Hamilton? The question was posed to me on a radio show this week, a day after the deal in which the Angels sent Hamilton back to Texas for a player to be named later or cash considerations. The terms of the deal sound far more cold and business-like than the emotional drama that surrounded the trade and Hamilton’s...
