MLB trade rumor: Teams are inquiring about Yunel Escobar, Angels are open to move him

Well, looks like we're at that point: trade season, and in the case of the Angels, it could be more like send-away-anybody-and-everybody-of-any-value season. We kinda/sorta knew this day was coming, with how bad the team has been playing. They are currently 16 games out of first place, the most they've been behind in June since the 2001 season.

WeekEnd HaloLinks: Lincecum Pulls an "F" against the A's

In fairness, Tim Lincecum needs more work to get into his groove for a full-time starter at the MLB level. Also in fairness, with the way this season is going it doesn't really make a difference. Let The Freak roll! Ok. So Tim Lincecum blew up and didn't make it to the 4th inning, and it took 83 pitches to get through 3. But we shouldn't freak out on The Freak. Who really thinks...

Jered Weaver’s Top Five Games

At the end of the 2016 season, Jered Weaver’s contract with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim will expire, and it could very well mean the end of Weaver’s illustrious career.  He has provided Angel fans with a decade full of highlights and is clearly one of the best pitchers the franchise has ever had.  I’m hoping that he he can find the magic again and can turn in one last...
