Evaluating the Huston Street trade three different ways

Mike Trout, Albert Pujols Troll Fernando Rodney During Angels Rally (Video)

Against the Angels on Sunday, Rodney celebrated a little early, doing his normal antics after recording the final out of the eighth inning. In ninth inning, however, the Angels got their revenge. Albert Pujols...

The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim have some serious Magic Working Right now

[Box Score] [Seattle Times] [OC Register Angels Blog] The Angels – if you watch them each day – they’re that team this year that is high on character. That team that never seems to be out of a game. They are a gritty, grimy bunch (not without their fine items) that just seems to hang around and never actually be dead. Today they did it again. Another day in which Mike Trout...

Last night had to be the longest game in the Mike Trout Angels era

On the night they traded for Huston Street (they gave up some nice pieces that would have been a big part of their future), the Angels played a five hour, 14 minute game in which they outlasted the Mariners in 16 innings to win 3-2. I saw most of it – and I have to give the Angels bullpen credit. The last three pitchers who appeared; Fernando Salas, Cory Rasmus, and Hector Santiago...
