MondoLinks: Halos avoid being swept with their own broom

Fresh off a sweeping of the Royals, the Angels woke up just in time Sunday afternoon to hand Cole Hamels his first loss in Arlington since cavemen rode the dinosaurs. After trying to push the top half of the batting order to get it in gear in the Friday and Saturday contests,  the #'s 5 through 9 slots in the order just took over entirely and carried the Angels to victory yesterday. That was the one game I was figuring as a sure loss. Seriously, hitters five through nine scored 9 of the Angels' 13 runs over the weekend, collected 22 of the 34 hits, and hit 2 of the 3 home runs (Soto had 2...

The Gift

Astros are kind of a mess right now. W: Hamels (3-0)  L: Fister (1-2)  S: Tolleson (5) HR: White (5), Odor (2) Box Score Game Zone Doug Fister got the loss but he wasn’t to blame. The Astros had two hit batters in the first–didn’t score. They had three straight singles to start the second-didn’t […]

Red Sox 7, Rays 3: Porcello vs. Archer proves a surprising mismatch

In what would've been a nightmare matchup last season, the Red Sox came away with an easy win We have a theory around these parts--phenomenon, law, whatever you want to call it--that we call the "Hamels - Harang theory." It stems from the opening days of 2015 where the Red Sox crushed Cole Hamels one night, then were largely shut down by Aaron Harang the next. Simply put: the Red Sox can hit the best, but not the rest. Enter Drew Smyly and Chris Archer. On Tuesday Smyly made the Red Sox look like a high school team trying to play in the majors. On Wednesday the Red Sox made Chris Archer...

On the Brink - A Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim preview

A look ahead at our first opponent on the upcoming seven-game homestand This decade, the Angels have enjoyed the blessings of deep pockets and Mike Trout. One might think that those two things alone would be enough to experience sustained success. Rather surprisingly, the Angels have only tasted the postseason once in the last six years. They had a chance to pull even with the Astros for the second Wild Card slot on the last day of the 2015 season and weren't able to do so, as they fell victim to a complete game performance from Cole Hamels of the Texas Rangers. There's been no shortage of...

More on Machado's hot start and Hardy's heads-up play - School of Roch

ARLINGTON, Tx. - Adam Jones swung at the first pitch tonight from Rangers left-hander Cole Hamels, a 90-mph fastball, and grounded to short to end the top of the first inning. No sense milking the at-bat, Jones' first since April 6. Elvis Andrus made a nice backhanded stop and throw,...

Errors & LOBsters & Beltres oh my: Angels continue to frustrate with a 4-1 loss to Rangers

Angels 1  Rangers 4 The Angels took on the Rangers tonight, and lost, but probably only because they let Texas win. The Angels are cool guys like that, know what I'm sayin'? The epitome of chill, and most likely they just wanted their visitors to enjoy a couple wins. This is what I tell myself, over and over. I can't tell if it's working or not; am I deluded enough to get this game out of my mind now? Why does it still hurt? I just want to forget about it, the tussle of Richards vs Hamels, and a loss to the Rangers. But it happened, it was real. It was our lovely, lovely Saturday night,...

Game 1, Mariners at Rangers

King Felix vs. Cole Hamels, 1:05 Happy Felix Day! The M’s kick off their 2016 season as a strange kind of dark horse contender. They’ve completely overhauled the roster and the front office, and despite a painful 2015, and despite the myriad failings false starts dogging them, they’re neck and neck with some of the This post came from: U.S.S.

4/4: Open Game Thread

Felix Hernandez Vs. Cole Hamels Well my goodness gracious we made it. After one of the most disappointing seasons in franchise history, an offseason of change and turmoil, we are here. In times of change and unfamiliarity we will often seek out something, anything that offers memory of the past. The soul needs a North Star to guide it through darkness. Felix Hernandez is that star. He is the beacon, the guiding light that keeps us from crashing into rocky shores, the one point of hope and optimism that never quite went out. He's 30 in two days. Thirty years old, when I swear just a few...
