Angels' Albert Pujols ties Mark McGwire for 10th on all-time home run list

Albert Pujols has been remarkably disciplined during his ascent on the all-time home-run list. He appreciates the interest in his records — and in the Hall of Famers he passes along the way — but he says he cannot put his welfare ahead of his team’s welfare.  “I believe, if I start doing that,...

Thor'sLinks: Mariners feast on Halo LOBsters

Tyler Skaggs dug a hole, and Mike Trout and Albert Pujols filled it with fresh LOBsters. The Mariners, being from Seattle, knew exactly what to do. They added the water and hot rocks and dined on the seafood buffet. Like, wow. Mike Trout stranded 6 base runners. Albert Pujols AND Andrelton Simmons each stranded 4. Jefry Marte stranded 3. That's the heart of your batting order, right there. The team tally was 12. And when Tyler Skaggs burns through 82 pitches, 30 of which were not strikes, and he only makes it through 10 outs, and the LAA base runners are playing by pee wee league strategies...

VIDEO: Angels go up 2-0 in the first, Pujols collects RBI No. 93

Angels finally get a win, avoiding consecutive loss infamy with 7-6 comeback over Mariners

Angels 7 Mariners 6 They did it! They actually did it! The Angels managed to come back from behind, the fall behind, then come back from behind again to get the win over Seattle. The 11 game losing streak has been snapped, thank you Baseball Gods. This was looking like loss #12 for much of the evening, with the Mariners getting four runs off of starter Jhoulys Chacin and then two off of reliever J.C. Ramirez. Heading into the sixth, the Angels were down 4-1, but they then started cooking something up when Kole Calhoun and Mike Trout drew walks. Albert Pujols was next up, and if you...

Two of the Angels' big bats were missing in loss to Cleveland

CLEVELAND – Albert Pujols left Sunday’s game early and Mike Trout never entered it at all, both topics of discussion after the Angels’ 5-4 loss to the Cleveland Indians. Pujols, who rarely argues with umpires, was tossed by plate ump Cliff...

Indians 5, Angels 4: Ryan Lewis’ 12 Walk-Off Thoughts on Andrew Miller, Abraham Almonte, more

Here are 12 Walk-Off Thoughts after the Indians’ 5-4 win against the Los Angeles Angels on Sunday. 1. Sunday’s game represents what the Indians’ bullpen is capable of looking like just about every night. After trailing 4-1 early, the Indians grabbed a 5-4 lead in the sixth inning. 2. That’s when Andrew Miller relieved starting pitcher Trevor Bauer. Miller threw 1-2-3 innings in the seventh and eighth that ended with Albert Pujols striking out looking and getting ejected. Since giving up a home run in his Cleveland debut, Miller has allowed only one hit in 6 1/3 innings. In that...

Thor'sLinks: The beat(down) goes on...

It's been only 6 wins over the last 18 contests, with 6 losses in a row. And now 4 road games against the AL Central-leading Indians, a team 14 games ahead of us for the year. Now you people know why I put up that Mystery Chart back on Tuesday. Albert Pujols tends to do his best in August every season. But Mike Trout has created this really nasty habit of sucking serious eggs once July is over. After July 21st, Mike has, essentially, turned into Jett Bandy. Over the last 7 games, he is Cliff Pennington, but with pop (Trout at .240 / .296 / .560 and Pennington at .236 / .304 / .375 on the...

The Cardinals Need a Straw to Stir their Drink

Since the departure of Albert Pujols almost five years ago, the St. Louis Cardinals have not had a clear leader. I think it shows in their play and results.

Thor'sLinks: Halos battle walks with walk-off

The Halo bullpen blew up the strike zone in the 8th and 9th innings last night, loading the bases both innings and giving up the lead. Only two miracle double-plays and an Albert Pujols 2-run walk-off homer saved the day. And what was I just saying yesterday about Oakland not taking walks like they did in the A's of Old?? My idea of the Oakland legacy is a team that wins by refusing to swing a bat. The plate umpire gets conned into losing his strike zone (which he did when he lost the bottom of the zone with Bedrosian pitching). Base runners appear all over the place. Leads are lost....
