Angels get destroyed by Rays for second night in a row, making me question reality

The Angels followed up last night’s 7-1 disaster loss with an 8-3 facepalm, at home. Angels 3 Rays 8 There’s not much to say about tonight’s game...that’s beneficial or good for the Halos, at least. Nick Tropeano got bombed in his 2.2 IP, giving up six hits (including two homers) and four runs total. Mike Trout had a 1-3 night with a K...although his lone hit WAS a dinger. Ummmm...let’s see...look, all you need to know is that the Angels are in a nosedive right now and I’m not really sure what’s going to pull them out of it. Turn the page, m#*%$$#%###$

Mike Trout’s under the radar career-season for the Los Angeles Angels

Mike Trout is off to the best start in his MLB career for the Los Angeles Angels, yet is somehow flying under the radar.

Can you match Royals players to their amateur scouting reports?

Can you match Royals players to their amateur scouting reports?

They all had upside and projectability. The draft is less than a month away, and new players will join the organization with the promise of being potential All-Stars, or perhaps, the next bust. Predicting player development is hard work, and that is perhaps best illustrated by going back and looking at old scouting reports. Baseball America has made that possible by archiving all of their scouting reports, and it is fun to go back and look at what they thought of players back when they were pimple-faced teenagers. Here is a snippet from a report on All-World outfielder Mike Trout. Trout’s...

HumpLinks: Halos lose it late.

Angels work hard to convert Barria “W” into LAA “L” Well, at least it was exciting to think about Mike Trout and Shohei Ohtani batting 1-2 in the order...............At least we know that Mike Scioscia is thinking...........But 1 for 6 with 1 walk against 2 strikeouts is not indicative of what these two can do together up there. (Hell, even Kalhoun managed 1 hit.) The timing kind of stinks, too, what with Trout only having 3 singles across his last 8 games, dating back to May 7th. This is a pitchers duel series. Slumps are gonna look worse, not better. One might, instead, observe...

Mike Trout or Mookie Betts, right now? The chatter rages on, what with Betts’ stupendous start and Trout’s historic start to his career. We can compare numbers at year’s end, but let’s not wait.After the Yankees series, Betts had played 541 career regular-season games.

Thor’sLinks: Angels Roll the Rockies

Thor’sLinks: Angels Roll the Rockies

Barria with 5+ shutout innings, Upton/Cozart/Trout with offense In a Rocky Mountain matinee, the Angels kicked off MLB with an 8-0 roll of the Rockies. Jaime Barria went 5.1 innings of shutout baseball and his ERA should drop to the 2.50 territory, something to go with that 3-1 record. If he had enough innings pitched, those would threaten to break him into the ranks of being an AL Top 10 pitcher. Justin Upton and Zack Cozart both homered. Mike Trout had a pair of hits. And Albert Pujols did not GIDP the entire Colorado trip (more on that below). The bullpen (Justin Anderson + Jose Alvarez...

HumpLinks: Angels Offense Offers Up Mile Sigh

Halo bats suffer a Rocky road in Denver The Angels did not win last night, but don’t blame the starting pitching. You might not have noticed, but over the last 3 weeks the starters have only tanked a couple of times. The bullpen? Not as strong. Andrew Heaney went 6 innings and gave up only 2 runs. That’s excellent. Dylan Bundy? Not excellent. No. The Angels lost 4-2. After Heaney hit the showers that Noe Ramirez guy gave up a 2-out walk followed by a 2-out single and ending with a 2-out double. And in the 8th inning Justin Upton homered after Mike Trout walked. And that was it. Zack...

TuesdoLinks: Mike Trout Dominates Off Days

Another day of rest, except for the hype as we realize that Trout is playing beyond reality. I have been getting tired of all these off days, but after yesterday we face 1 day off over the next 30. My tune will be different 5 weeks from now. But here, on what should be a slow news day, there sure was a lot of waking up around Baseball to the level of play that Mike Trout is accomplishing right now. His last week certainly exploded all his stats and he cannot keep up that rate for an entire season. But all he has to do is throw out a week like the last one every month and league will need to...
