Surprise! Jared Walsh the hero!

Surprise! Jared Walsh the hero!

The bullpen blows it again, but the Angels don’t like narratives anyway, decide to win for some reason. Angels 3, Rangers 2 It was Hansel Robles’ turn tonight. I’m talking, of course, about the spin-o-rama that the Angels bullpen has decided to play all of a sudden. Each day, before the game starts, they sit in a circle and spin a spinner, and towards whomever the arrow points is going to blow the game that night. Futility. You can still read the above, but it doesn’t apply that much. Because we win! Woohoo! Winning cures everything! Jared Walsh! Gets the ice bath! We can forget...

The sad progression of the Angels

The sad progression of the Angels

We need Ricky Nolasco now, and we need him badly. It’s both fun and funny to look at the progression of Angels history. Mostly sad, but if you squint and pretend it is another team, and not the team that you so desperately love, it becomes a little more palatable. This is a team that always needs the extra outfielder, or perhaps is just one infielder short, and they always need better starting pitching. The Hitters It starts in 2014, when the Angels decided to bring in Raúl Ibañez to play left field. It was hilarious, great, and an unmitigated disaster. Pretty much as soon he started,...

Griffin Canning pitched well, Angels defense didn’t cooperate

Griffin Canning pitched well, Angels defense didn’t cooperate

Buttercup the song is gone, Buttercup the reality is not Angels 3 Rangers 4 Griffin Canning showed once again that is ready for the Big Leagues. It may have taken him 95 pitches to get through 5 innings, but Canning allowed only 3 hits and 1 run (a 1st inning leadoff homer) and he struck out 5. The Angels offense backed him - sort of. Putting up 3 runs in the 2nd thanks to Jonathan Lucroy and Brian Goodwin homers but it was sadly all they could muster. It would have been enough too, if not for (see below)... Justin Anderson relieved Canning and looked pretty shaky. He threw 27 pitches to...

The fog begins to lift from Angels catcher Kevan Smith after his concussion

The fog begins to lift from Angels catcher Kevan Smith after his concussion

Smith was placed on the seven-day concussion list after taking a foul ball in the mask on Tuesday. On Friday, he said he felt like he was in a haze after the impact, which felt like "my jaw went into my ear."

Defending the Decision to Start Zack Cozart

Defending the Decision to Start Zack Cozart

We may have an answer. Tonight’s lineup against the Rangers and their lefty starter features Zack Cozart. Today’s @Angels lineup pic.twitter.com/0jLphf8MgT— Alex Curry (@Alex_Curry) May 24, 2019 Oh no, you say! Why is Cozart still starting? Not so fast, says Rick Souddress, who was kind enough to chat with me even though it is his birthday and he is on vacation in Colorado. The expert, most famous for his hot takes on Halos Heaven, did some investigative research into the stats this year. Most intriguingly, Kole Calhoun, although hitting well against righties, actually has just a...

MLB draft 2019:  Angels farm depth report - Outfielders

MLB draft 2019:  Angels farm depth report - Outfielders

Lot of potential talent coming in the next 1-3 years The MLB draft is less than 2 weeks away, so we’ll be taking look at the Angels farm system. Where are they strong? Where are they weak? In this edition, let’s take a look at outfielders. The Angels actually have a whole bunch of guys who will probably hit the major leagues some day but most of them profile as a 4th outfielder aside from maybe Jo Adell and Brandon Marsh. Having a slew of 4th outfield types on the team is not a bad thing as a few of them may make the push for an every day role. (age is age at 2019 season end) Big...

Series Preview: Rangers @ Angels (Chance to get even?)

Series Preview: Rangers @ Angels (Chance to get even?)

Angels are 2-4 against the Rangers so far this year Rangers (24-23) @ Angels (22-27) Seems like only yesterday the Angels were sitting one game under .500. That day is more of a distant memory after the trouncing the Angels receiving by the Twins. The last time these two teams met, the Rangers swept the Angels - but the Angels won their first series 2 games to 1 in earlier last month, so taking 2 games here could even up the season series. The Rangers find themselves in 2nd place in the AL West after winning their last 3 series and sweeping the Mariners earlier in the week. Don’t...
