LOS ANGELES ANGELS OF ANAHEIM 2015 PREVIEW
2014 finally saw the Los Angeles Angels reap dividends from the spending spree of the last few off-seasons when they handed out lucrative, though generally ill-advised, mega contracts to Albert Pujols, Josh Hamilton, and C.J. Wilson. The Angels finished 2014 with the best record in all of baseball with a record of 98-64, an astonishing...
By Glen McKee, angelswin.com Junior Prognosticator - One of my favorite parts of spring training is looking to the season ahead and seeing how many predictions I can make that will totally miss the mark. It’s a hallowed tradition that ranks right up there with giving up on the season after a two-game skid in the second week of April. There are as many different methods...
Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim star outfielder Mike Trout might just be the best player in baseball. A first-round draft pick out of Millville (N.J.) High School in 2009, Trout never attended college. He had been committed to East Carolina but eschewed the college route to begin his promising pro career.
Apparently, the 23-year-old Trout has adopted Duke as his college basketball...

I’ve put this one off as long as I can, but now it is finally time to engage in what might be the most futile act ever: projecting Josh Hamilton‘s 2015 season.
What happened in 2014?It seems like eons ago now, but Josh Hamilton actually started the 2014 season well. He posted a 1.286 OPS in April and had people thinking he might actually be rebounding some. Then he went and...
Jerry Dipoto was on the hunt for young pitching again this offseason. He hit his mark and brought in Andrew Heaney but it cost him Howie Kendrick in the process. Heaney has a lot of potential, but will the long-term reward be worth the short-term risk?
What happened in 2014?Andrew Heaney was in the Miami Marlins organization in 2014 and widely considered a top 30 prospect, quite...
TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) Matt Shoemaker combined with three relievers on a two-hitter, and the Los Angeles Angels beat the Seattle Mariners 5-0 Monday.
Shoemaker retired his first 13 batters before Mike Zunino's fifth-inning double. Logan Morrison singled him to third, but Zunino was stranded when Shoemaker retired Willie Bloomquist on a flyout and Dustin Ackey on a popout.

There's something about Don Baylor that makes teams win. Almost everywhere he played, success followed. Not only was he the first Angels MVP in 1979, he helped the club win its first-ever pennant. Later in his career, he again showed his leadership and success by leading three different teams to the postseason in three consecutive years (1986-1988). Known as "Groove," Baylor...

Weaver has never lit up the radar gun, and he’s still toward the front of a big-league rotation, even though […]

By WAR, you could split him into four or five parts and have four or five decent everyday players, at least given good enough prosthetic limbs. Trout’s coming off an MVP award he deserved, after back-to-back seasons of not winning MVP awards he […]
