ANGELS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Albert Pujols Approaches 500 HRs… And Nobody Cares

Sometimes you read a piece and it says everything you feel. Bob Nightengale does just that with an article from the USA Today on Albert Pujols and his pending milestone 500th homerun. The reason the Angels were able to justify (at least to themselves) that Albert was worth the 240 million dollar contract they offered was that they were going to get one of the all-time greats, yes...

Chris Iannetta's walk-off HR lifts Angels past A's in 12

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Chris Iannetta is no stranger to the moment but even he was a bit surprised by his results Wednesday night. The ball doesn't carry particularly well at Angel Stadium at night, but Iannetta got just enough of a Drew Pomeranz pitch to lift the Angels to a 5-4 win over Oakland in 12 innings. Even in the dugout, there were some reservations when Angels players...

Angels reliever Joe Smith takes injury of Kole Calhoun tough

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- At this point, you could take your pick. Which member of the Angels bullpen would be the next to relinquish a lead? You could go down the list. By the numbers, it certainly was not to be Joe Smith. In an ineffective bullpen, he was an effective one. In six appearances, he allowed just three hits, eight strikeouts, no walks, and a 0.00 ERA. Yet, on Tuesday night...

Going to sleep on Mike Trout was a bad idea

I had the Angels game somewhat queued up last night when I passed out on the couch with my bulldog – Garrett Richards was doing everything he could to hand the game back to the A’s despite those darling Angels doing everything they could do to get him the win in the face of his own futility. And I fell asleep on Michael Nelson Trout. And wouldn’t you know it that he did something...

Mike Trout's clutch HR not enough as Angels downed by A's in extras

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Mike Trout tried his best to be the hero Tuesday night. The Angels star hit a two-run homer to tie the game in the bottom of the ninth to force extra innings. In the bottom of the 11th, representing the tying run again, he legged out an infield single, stole second base, and advanced to third on a Raul Ibanez groundout to first, but he never made it home.

The Historic Awesomeness of Mike Trout in One Chart

This just in, the start of Mike Trout’s baseball career has been historically excellent. OK, obviously that’s not news. It’s been well documented that Trout’s 2012 season was the best season ever for a 20-year old according to fWAR. It should come as no surprise then that Trout’s 2012 was also one of the highest fantasy value above replacement (FVAR) seasons ever for such...

Los Angeles Angels have early concerns about Ibanez

During the offseason, it seemed as though the Los Angeles Angels were headed in the right direction. In return for the streaky and strikeout-prone Mark Trumbo, the team received some arms to help the struggling starting rotation. This left the Angels in need of a heavy hitter, which they seemingly found in veteran Raul Ibanez. The 41-year-old appears to be the prototypical designated...
