Angels cut Johnny Giavotella and look toward 2017

Even with six weeks left in this season, the Angels already are planning for next season. Johnny Giavotella was not in those plans, so the Angels cut him Saturday. Giavotella, 29, the Angels’ opening-day second baseman this season and last, had one hit in 19 at-bats this month and had not started...

Johnny Giavotella looks to win back playing time with Angels

ANAHEIM – Johnny Giavotella is right back where he’s been for most of his career. After proving to the Angels he could be an everyday player in 2015 and holding the spot for much of 2016, Giavotella is again on the bench. “I think my entire...

VIDEO: Giovetalla handles deflection, turns double play

Matt Shoemaker allowed one run in the second, but Johnny Giavotella made sure there was no further damage by taking a hit that deflected off of Shoemaker's glove and turning it into a double play. It was no small feat either with the ball coming off...

Is Johnny Giavotella done?

Johnny G is having the second best year of his career and he's been riding a lot of pine Eh tu Johnny G? In 2015, Johnny G burst onto the Angels scene with sometimes a laugh, sometimes a high-flying slide, sometimes really bad games or plays, and sometimes huge clutch hitting.  In the end, and eye problems aside, Johnny G had the best year of his career in Anaheim. Fast forward to 2016 and Johnny G was playing down a bit from his career year (which was expected), but still hitting a decent .265 (though only a .291 OBP), and some MUCH improved defense.  Pretty recently, Johnny G sightings...

WeekEnd HaloLinks: Naps still reigns on Sosh's parade

It's a wet weekend in Cleveland, with the Angels playing down to the sloppy field. One player who was not affected was Halo-basher Mike Napoli. It rained water on the Angels, then it rained runs, then it reigned Mike Napoli Supreme. Don't act so surprised. We knew this was coming. At 2-8 over our last 10 we are the coldest team in Baseball and it ain't even close. That don't change on any given day. And that don't change opportunities for individual greatness. And it doesn't mean we have gotten any worse. Without a pitching staff and with a couple of holes in our lineup we haven't been much...

Angels lose 7th in a row via 14-4 beatdown from the Indians & the free fall continues

Angels 4 Indians 14 The Angels lost their seventh game in a row tonight, by the score of 14-3. It was a bloodbath throughout, and on top of everything else, we all were made to suffer through TWO rain delays. A lot of waiting, a lot of cringing, and all for a 14-4 loss on the road to Cleveland. The pitching sucked. Mike Napoli bashed the Halos heads into the curb...figuratively, of course. The bats didn’t do enough at the plate. Oh, and again...TWO RAIN DELAYS. Life is a cruel joke. What is there to say at this point, guys? The Angels are having an epically bad season. So I'll meet you...

VIDEO: Giavotella adds to the Angels' tally in the fourth

Johnny Giavotella added to the Angels' lead in the fourth inning with an RBI single off of Taijuan Walker to push the lead to 6-2. The Mariners did respond with a two-run shot by Franklin Guttierez in the fifth inning, but the Angels still have a two...

Choi shows off but Morin chokes and Angels miss out on a sweep

This recap brought to you with 90% less Trout, 200% more Choi bombs, and 100% More-in screwups Angels 6 Athletics 8 Mike Trout didn't start the game due to a "head cold", which really means he faked being sick to throw off rumors that he's not human.  It may even work for a little while.  Also out for the second day in a row was Johnny Giavotella, but that certainly had nothing to do with non-human rumors. Someone had to keep Trout company on the bench, right?  I mean, besides Tim Lincecum, who was originally tapped to start this game until Nolasco arrived in Anaheim. Ricky Nolasco made...
