Mike Trout did something for the first time on Saturday

Mike Trout has achieved a lot for someone who has had only two full seasons in the Major Leagues. He’s led the league in runs twice, and led once each in stolen bases and walks while lapping his competition in terms of WAR. But on Saturday afternoon against the Tigers, Trout achieved something he had never done in 352 career games. He struck out four times, earning the golden...

Albert Pujols’ 500th home run will be an achievement worthy of our attention

If you learned to love baseball in the 1980′s and early 1990′s such as myself, than you’ll remember the days when 35 home runs was enough to lead either league, and that the 54 homers hit by Cecil Fielder in 1991 was a very big deal. Regardless of who’s at fault, the days of low-numbered, long-ball champions are gone, and because of the PED-era, nobody will ever approach...

Los Angeles Angels Top 10 Prospects

The Los Angeles Angels have one of the worst farm systems in baseball. None of the prospects on this list project as All-Stars or even good Major League players. Cowart, Lindsey, and Cron have the potential to become solid regulars. The pitchers on this list all have high ceilings, but are very raw. Given the state of the Angels’ payroll and farm system, it is imperative that the...

Mike Trout is promoting Marlon Wayans movies, for some reason

When it comes to baseball, Mike Trout is great at just about everything. Sure, you can quibble about his arm strength, but that’s about it. Off the field, however, Trout has a lot of work to do. By all accounts he is a genial, upstanding fellow, but it turns out that he isn’t exactly a cinephile. Go see my boy @marlonwayans hilarious movie #ahauntedhouse2 in theaters TONIGHT...

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Chris Iannetta is no stranger to the moment but even he was a bit surprised by his results Wednesday night. The ball doesn't carry particularly well at Angel Stadium at night, but Iannetta got just enough of a Drew Pomeranz pitch to lift the Angels to a 5-4 win over Oakland in 12 innings. Even in the dugout, there were some reservations when Angels players...

Angels reliever Joe Smith takes injury of Kole Calhoun tough

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- At this point, you could take your pick. Which member of the Angels bullpen would be the next to relinquish a lead? You could go down the list. By the numbers, it certainly was not to be Joe Smith. In an ineffective bullpen, he was an effective one. In six appearances, he allowed just three hits, eight strikeouts, no walks, and a 0.00 ERA. Yet, on Tuesday night...

Los Angeles Angels have early concerns about Ibanez

During the offseason, it seemed as though the Los Angeles Angels were headed in the right direction. In return for the streaky and strikeout-prone Mark Trumbo, the team received some arms to help the struggling starting rotation. This left the Angels in need of a heavy hitter, which they seemingly found in veteran Raul Ibanez. The 41-year-old appears to be the prototypical designated...
