Angels kick off second half with a 7-0 win over White Sox

Angels 7 White Sox 0 Welcome back to baseball. The Angels came out of the second half gates firing, led by Yunel Escobar, Kole Calhoun and a gem from Hector Santiago. I'm still in rural southeast Kansas, back home tomorrow night, reporting from afar (and on my phone), so luckily this was an easy one. Santiago was nails, throwing seven innings, giving up just five hits and zero runs. Get that trade value up! Meanwhile the Halos were propped up by some early RBIs from Escobar and Calhoun, and the score remained at 2-0 Angels until they blew it wide open in the seventh. Multiple hits,...

ThorsLinks: Trading Spaces time

Time to get real, people. Over the next two weeks we are likely to see one or more favorite Halos leave Anaheim and create new holes in the organization, as Eppler tries to nab a few useful parts and tape over older holes. The All-Star game is now parked out back. Coming up next are the Hall of Fame Induction Day (July 24th) and....for us....the non-waiver trade deadline, which is set for August 1st this year. that's just over 2 weeks from now, and we have some tasty assets on our shelves. The first names I found on the rumor docket are Yunel Escobar and Joe Smith. I like both these guys,...

WeekEnd HaloLinks: Halos slide past Rays. O's up.

The Angels offense kept warm in Tampa and took their first series in weeks. But it's pretty common for the Halos to get hot just in time for the All-Star Break to gut their momentum. The big news from yesterday is that the Angels finally won a series. This had not happened since June 17/18/19 up in Oakland. And it's the first time they have won at least 3 games in a row since May 13/14/15/16. (It's only the 4th time all season they have won at least 3 games in a row.) So, sadly, this kind of thing is a really big deal. Hector Santiago and Yunel Escobar have improved their trade bait...
