Angels #1 prospect Jo Adell hits it out of the park with his 2nd annual Turkey Drive

It is always heartwarming to see successful people giving back Like Mike Trout, Jo Adell is not just a good baseball player. No word on how into the weather Adell is, but he definitely is very into helping out the community. Over the weekend, Adell held his 2nd annual Turkey Drive. The hashtag “CommunityFirst” says it all. Adell graduated from Ballard High School in Louisville and was committed to playing at the University of Louisville before signing with the Angels. The Jo Adell Turkey Drive was a HUGE success! It means so much to see the Louisville community come together as one!...

Angels reunite with Peter Bourjos, inking him to a minor league deal

Angels reunite with Peter Bourjos, inking him to a minor league deal

Part of the deal is a spring training invite He’s back! The Angels 10th round pick from 2005 and the man who was patrolling center field when one Michael Nelson Trout was called up. Lest you get too excited, Bourjos is not the man he once was and the Angels signed him to a minor league deal with Spring Training invite. He’ll have his chance to make the big league squad, likely as a 4th outfielder. Bourjos logged just 47 at bats with a .239 OBP in the majors last year and 203 in 2017. The Angels will be his 5th team over the past 5 seasons. At 31 years old, his defense is not what it...

Links: Betts and Yelich take home the MVP awards

Meanwhile, a new tv deal will help teams like the Tigers bear their payroll burden just a little farther. Awards season for major league baseball concluded on Thursday with the announcement of the Most Valuable Player awards. In the American League, Mookie Betts of the Boston Red Sox got the nod, while Christian Yelich of the Milwaukee Brewers took home the prize in the National League. Neither was much of a surprise. Betts had the much tougher task of taking down the long-time reigning American League MVP, Mike Trout. Betts cracked 32 home runs, stole 30 bags, and played brilliant defense...

Why I voted Angels’ Mike Trout second to Mookie Betts for AL MVP

Why I voted Angels’ Mike Trout second to Mookie Betts for AL MVP

Although Trout is the best player in the world, it's possible for him to be outperformed in a given season. In 2018, Boston's Betts was slightly better.

Mike Trout finishes 2nd in AL MVP Race

Mike Trout finishes 2nd in AL MVP Race

7 years - 6 top 2 finishes Mike Trout is good. Real good. But this year, BBWAA voters decided he was not as valuable as Mookie Betts. You could make many argument that Trout was indeed better than Betts, but there is also no doubt that Betts DID have a great season. Trout has been eligible for MVP the past 7 years and he has finished top 2 EVERY YEAR except for his shortened 2017 season when he placed a respectable 4th. Trout led the league in walks (122), OBP (.460), OPS (1.088), wRC+ (191), and OPS+ (199). He has already won the award TWICE and this year he had his best stats yet. Sadly...

Mookie Betts wins the MVP

Nothing but respect for my MVP Awards week officially came to a close on Thursday with the grand finale. Both leagues awarded their Most Valuable Player awards, and baseball’s best team was voted to have been home to the American Legue’s most valuable player. It wasn’t much of a surprise in the end, but Mookie Betts came out on top and won his first career MVP. He received 28 first place votes, with Mike Trout and J.D. Martinez getting the others. This is the perfect end to a magical season for the Red Sox, with their best player being given the top individual honor in the sport....

Angels’ Mike Trout a longshot to win MVP, likely headed for another near-miss

The MVP awards will be announced Thursday, and it could be yet another year that the Angels' center fielder finishes second. He has finished in the top two in five of his previous six full seasons, but he has won only twice.

New Angels manager Brad Ausmus is confident he and the team can take next step together

The former catcher soaked up statistics during an 18-year MLB career, but he says he knows when his eyes should override the analytics. In his second chance as a major league manager, can he push the right buttons to get Mike Trout and company back in the playoffs?
