For those of you thinking this might open up some time for Cowart, that is still to be determined. #Angels lineup. No Cowart. Escobar not on the card, so presumably on the DL.

MLB reviewing anti-gay slur used by A’s outfielder

Joyce, Oakland’s right fielder and leadoff hitter, was overheard by an Associated Press photographer while directing an anti-gay insult at a fan who had been heckling Joyce. Toronto’s Kevin Pillar was suspended for two games earlier this season for using an anti-gar slur against an opposing pitcher and former Toronto infielder Yunel Escobar, now with the Angels, was suspended for three games for a homophobic slur etched into his eye black; Joyce is likely to draw a similar penalty of two or three games unless Major League Baseball uncovers any additional issues. Joyce played for the...

Tonight, the Angels kept their hot streak going & their resilient reputation intact as they collected their 32nd comeback win of the 2017 season. Angels 8 Athletics 6 The Angels were down 6-4 when the entered the seventh inning tonight, but they would send nine Halos to the plate in that frame, and once again we were witnesses to late-inning heroics. The Athletics learned, in that seventh inning moment when an infield single from Yunel Escobar scored the go-ahead run, that they had come to Anaheim at the wrong time. The Angels are not messing around these days, and they can only be...

Parker Bridwell builds on his unlikely legend as he leads Angels to 7-2 win over Blue Jays

Parker Bridwell builds on his unlikely legend as he leads Angels to 7-2 win over Blue Jays

Kaleb Cowart, Yunel Escobar and Andrelton Simmons gave him some run support, Bridwell did most of the rest. Angels 7 Blue Jays 2 Parker Bridwell did it again, thankfully. This kid went out and threw a hell of a game on Friday night in Toronto, ending the Angels’ recent three-game losing streak with absolute authority from the hill, kicking off all our weekends on a good note, baseball-wise, at least. I am a fan of surprises, and Bridwell is the surprise that never ceases to deliver. Mr. Bridwell would go 7.1 IP/3 H/ 1 R/ 1 ER/ 1 BB/ 4K en route to getting his fifth win of the 2017...
