Carlos Martínez and Albert Pujols are working together - A Hunt and Peck

The two foundations are teaming up. For the past few years Albert Pujols and his foundation, Pujols Family Foundation, have hosted a a Celebrity Golf Classic. The event has continued in St. Louis even after Pujols signed with the Angels. Hosting it in Pujols’ stead has been Cardinals stalwart Matt Holliday. With Holliday’s departure in free agency, there was an opportunity for someone new to get involved. Pairing up the event with Carlos Martínez’s foundation, Tsunami Waves, is a natural fit. Thank you @tanisushibistro for taking great care of us in our meeting today. Big...

Blue Jays have a friend in Pujols?

After a minor bit of controversy at the end of Sunday’s game against the Angels, there have been a couple reports of peer respect and advice from future Hall of Famer, Albert Pujols. Competition can breed some of the worst behaviour in people, as an otherwise rational person can completely lose their marbles in the […] Blue Jays have a friend in Pujols? - Jays Journal - Jays Journal - A Toronto Blue Jays Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Blue Jays hold on for a desperate win over the Angels: Griffin

Blue Jays hold on for a desperate win over the Angels: Griffin

The win was huge, because after taking a three-run lead on a blast to centre field by Jose Bautista, his first of the year, the Angels scored two runs in the bottom of the 13th and left the winning run at second base with Albert Pujols and C.J. Cron batting against Joe Biagini.

WeekEnd HaloLinks: Halo bats need a reboot.

Raise your eyes to star and sky...Believe in fly always...Take your dreams, your broken schemes...And sweep the past away The Angels are 10th in the AL in home runs hit, but 1st in the AL in home runs allowed. And there, in a nutshell, is yesterday's game. Two home runs by the Astros against a single home run by the Angels. And another great start, this one by Matt Shoemaker, was wasted. Only one time over the last 6 games have the opposition scored more than 3 runs, and the Angels lost 5 of them. But, hey! No worries. Just follow the lead of Albert Pujols, who went 0 for 4 (again)...

Thor'sLinks: Angels offense sits back down

Thor'sLinks: Angels offense sits back down

Right when we get yet another unexpected and magical start out of s replacement rotation piece, the offense picks that same game to refuse to rise to the challenge and take advantage of the opportunity. For a good deal through the game yesterday, JC Ramirez actually out-pitched Houston ace, and Angel Killer, Dallas Keuchel. A big difference in the game was that Ramirez could not get past Josh Reddick, while Keuchel got past Albert Pujols with ease. Another big difference is that Ramirez was counting on the defense behind him. Keuchel had a different defense behind him. You won't see it in...

Hanley Ramirez Gets Ready For Some 'Pretzel Logic'

Hanley Ramirez Gets Ready For Some 'Pretzel Logic'

Next Wednesday, April 26th, is National Pretzel Day. We thought you'd want to know. And so does Hanley Ramirez. Hanley will be a spokesperson for the day—along with other MLB players like Adam Jones and Albert Pujols—posting pretzel-related things on their Instagram and Twitter accounts. Snyder's of Hanover—the nation's #1 pretzel-maker—will take the lead on the celebration. Here at FenwayNation we will definitely be celebrating the event, considering how integral pretzels are to the ballpark experience. Crunch away!

Latos and Lawrence to make weekend starts

Latos and Lawrence to make weekend starts

Joel Sherman tells us that Mat Latos and Casey Lawrence will be making the starts for the Blue Jays on Friday and Saturday, against the Angels, in place of the injured Aaron Sanchez and J.A. Happ. The Angels have a right-handed heavy lineup, with Mike Trout (presuming he isn’t the PTBNL in the Juan Graterol trade) and Albert Pujols in the middle of the lineup, so the Jays are staying away from T.J. House and Brett Oberholtzer. Latos has made 2 starts for the Bisons, totaling 9 innings, 8 hits, 1 earned, 3 walks and 10 strikeouts. He’s got the most MLB experience of the players on the...

HumpLinks: Halos whip up a W

HumpLinks: Halos whip up a W

Some offense, some defense, and some pitching all show up at the same time and the Halo glows through the Orange County night again. Albert Pujols hits his 593rd career home run what must be 593 feet, landing on the damned train tracks. (Ignore Victor's call of that shot being his 594th. Blame some stat sheet they keep handy in the booth or something.) That proved to be the final difference, and setting the final score, as the Angels won 5-2...........And the Halo powers the skies of Anaheim once more. A couple of things ump out at me when I look at the box score for last night. First, the...

Three-run blast by Pujols helps Angels over Astros, 5-2

HOUSTON (AP) - Albert Pujols hit a tiebreaking three-run homer in the fifth inning to give the Los Angeles Angels a 5-2 victory over the Houston Astros on Tuesday night and snap a six-game skid. The game was tied at 2-all with one out in the fifth when Pujols hit ...

Albert Pujols bomb changes the Halos’ trajectory, ending losing skid and sinking Astros 5-2

Great pitching, great hitting, great defense. Hey, did you know that combo wins games? Angels 5 Astros 2 Tonight, everything came together for the Angels. By “everything”, I mean the pitching was good, like it’s been for a few games in a row now, and the hitters showed up, did some damage, and put runs on the board. Typically, doing both of those things well in a baseball game will bode well for a team, and tonight, it definitely gave the Angels a spring in their step. Their success on the mound and the plate stopped the six-game losing streak, to the happiness and delight of fans...

Albert Pujols isn't worried about Angels' sputtering offense

In their last 37 innings, dating to Wednesday at home against Texas, the Angels have produced two extra-base hits. And one of those was a meaningless ninth-inning home run that merely made an eight-run defeat a five-run defeat. Losers of five straight, including a sweep in Kansas City, the Angels...

Game 8 Boxscore breakdown - The Angels are wrecking win probabilty

Game 8 Boxscore breakdown - The Angels are wrecking win probabilty

We’re gonna need a new scale after the past week You knew this boxscore breakdown was coming. I mean, the Angels have already won THREE games they shouldn’t have: Tuesday: 8th inning. The Angels had just a 5.6% chance of beating the A’s until Danny Espinosa hit a 3-run homer with 1 out in the 9th. Sunday: 9th inning. The Angels had a 0.2% chance of winning that game going into Albert Pujols’ AB in the bottom of the 9th. And now last night: The Angels had a 2.4% chance of pulling off a victory by the time there was 1 out int he 8th inning. Even with 1 out in the 9th, their odds...

Baseball-Highlights of Sunday's MLB games

Highlights of Sunday's Major League Baseball games: Angels 10, Mariners 9 The Los Angeles Angels scored seven runs in the bottom of the ninth inning on Sunday to beat Seattle Mariners 10-9 and sweep a three-game series at Anaheim, Calif.

Angels slugger Albert Pujols makes statement with key hits

Albert Pujols had apparently read enough about his one-for-20 start. He sat at his cubicle, sneering and raising an eyebrow at those who felt obligated to point it out. This, of course, after he had homered and later singled in two runs to tie the score in the same implausible ninth inning in which...
