Angels great Chuck Finley talks with Halos Heaven

Longtime Angels ace Chuck Finley sat down with me to talk about his playing days and how he'd fare in the modern game.

Jose Alvarez ruins the party & Dodgers beat Angels 4-0 cuz they’re total posers

Pffft...dude, the HALOS won last night 4-0. Get your own win ideas, Dodgers! Pffffffffffffttt. Angels 0 Dodgers 4 It’s kind of funny...while the Angels have defied the odds and kept me in a jubilant state of disbelief for a decent stretch now, they sure do lose in the most predictable ways possible.

Whicker: Martin Maldonado is driving force in Angels' rise

LOS ANGELES >> Bengie Molina was like the driver you used when you first broke 80. OK, 90. He brought his own kind of precious mettle. He was Mike Scioscia's world championship catcher, 15 years ago. He was a glowering cement block who rode his pitchers, drove in occasional but crucial ruins, and approached his craft as soberly as a mine worker.

The Angels Are Kind of Right About Albert Pujols

About a month ago, the Angels lost Mike Trout to injury. He’s still a few weeks away from returning. Trout’s absence was supposed to be crippling, and indeed, it probably should’ve been crippling. But one of the best active fun facts around is that, since Trout was sidelined, the Angels have played better. Now, that isn’t something I suggest you over-interpret. It doesn...

For Giants, failure to act could be the gravest error in a season full of them

If there has been one overused theme so far this season, it's that 2017 is a summer of great parity in Major League Baseball. Or at least, that is the sunny side up, glass half full version angle, because it has been a season where drastic cases of inconsistency and flat-out missed expectations have forced parity to the plate. While the spotlight has been on the struggles of the...
