Andrelton Simmons & Angels rough up David Price, take down 1st place Red Sox 7-3

Andrelton Simmons & Angels rough up David Price, take down 1st place Red Sox 7-3

The Halos got seven hits off of the venerable lefty, Price, and closed out their Saturday night with a big win. Angels 7 Red Sox 3 Last night, the Angels never really stood a chance; this was mainly because of the vastly different levels of competitiveness from respective Angels & Red Sox starters Ricky Nolasco and Chris Sale. It doesn’t necessarily mean that this 1st place Boston team is all that much better than this Halos team, does it? I mean, our guys DID beat up on them pretty good awhile back in Fenway. Yep, I’m going to put last night at the feet of the power of Sale, and...

Red Sox quick to rough up Ricky Nolasco in 6-2 win

The man might as well carry a bell with him to the field and let it ring for all to hear. Ricky Nolasco’s presence on a major league mound this season has steadily sounded a death knell. Not long after the Angels’ right-hander started Friday night at Angel Stadium, the game’s outcome was quickly...

Chris Sale Does Chris Sale Things, Ricky Nolasco Does Ricky Nolasco Things

Chris Sale Does Chris Sale Things, Ricky Nolasco Does Ricky Nolasco Things

I mean, the game was really over before it began, so are you really unhappy? Red Sox 6, Angels 2 On paper, the game was Chris Sale vs. Ricky Nolasco. Now, we all know that baseball is a funny game, and that anything can happen (trademarked by red floyd), so you can’t just give up before the first pitch is thrown. Ricky Nolasco was even better than halfway decent for the Florida Marlins in 2008. Incidentally, on a totally separate note, I made dinner plans for tonight and missed the first two hours of the game. Oops. If there are ever clinics on the worst innings that can probably happen...

WeekEnd HaloLinks: BoSox Sale into town

The Red Sox slink into town for a weekend 3. This time, Chris Sale doesn't get to duck facing Mike Trout. Here come the Red Sox. All Angels fans in attendance are encouraged to carry disinfectant at all times to ward off the Pink Hat Brigade that will be slinking into nearby seating. First game up: Ricky Nolasco and Chris Sale. Should be,,,uh,,,interesting. All games count. All wins are crucial. Just like these. These aren't the Dodgers and some 21-4 recent record being faced this weekend. It's only the Red Sox, 4-6 over their last 10 and a team the Trout-less Angels defeated 2 out of 3...

Free Baseball Dooms Angels in Trout’s Return

Free Baseball Dooms Angels in Trout’s Return

The slugger went 1-5 in his return to the lineup. Rays 2, Angels 1 Anaheim was loud tonight, watching as Mike Trout returned to the lineup. But it was not the Mike Trout show tonight early, as a pair of solo shots in the first two innings was the only scoring in the first nine innings. In the top of the first, it was Evan Longoria, launching Ricky Nolasco’s offering into the seats. We all cried, “Obligatory HR!” but interestingly enough, Longoria was the only Ray to get a hit off Nolasco in his sharp 7 innings of work. He finished with one earned run, two hits, two walks, and six...

Ricky Nolasco hammered for eight runs in Angels' 10-0 loss to the Rangers

Some nights, a game’s outcome is decided in the seventh or eighth inning on a manager’s pinch-hitting decision or a particularly prescient play by an infielder. Other nights, it is decided by one man’s simple struggles. Friday was one of those nights. Ricky Nolasco was the Angels’ choice to take...

Angels Are Supposedly A Baseball Team But Forget How to Baseball

Angels Are Supposedly A Baseball Team But Forget How to Baseball

This one got ugly really quickly. Rangers 10, Angels 0 There was a guy named Josh Hamilton on Jeopardy! tonight. He was from Texas. He looked pretty good. He came in last. I know this because at the end of two innings, the Rangers had 8, and the Angels had 0. I changed the channel soon after. Jeopardy! looked an enticing option. In some way, it was ironic. Josh Hamilton looked good with the Rangers, but once we signed him, he didn’t do much of anything. Ricky Nolasco looked sharp for all of two batters. His breaking ball was flat, and the Rangers punished him. In the first, the...

Ricky Nolasco shutting out the Mariners is the perfect end to a beautiful summer day

The Angels won 4-0 behind Nolasco, who is tapped into the universe and the Halosphere on cosmic levels that we’ll never understand. Angels 4 Mariners 0 The holiday weekend is in full swing, and that means we got to see some Mariners/Angels action, with stars and stripes adorning every uniform, fireworks going off in your neighborhood as you try to watch the game; the air was thick with the quintessential summer feeling, which means our love of, and thirst for, Angels baseball was at heightened levels this evening at the Big A. Ricky Nolasco must be tuned in to the heartbeat of the...
