The Angels Play Under Protest as they suffer a lost.

The Angels fall short. It seemed a little bush league on a certain play. That’s another talk though. Matt Shoemaker had a good outing, but the Angels weren’t able to hold the Kansas City Royals. The game opens up pretty normal. Two good pitchers facing each other in the first few innings. After a few outs Matt Shoemaker seemed perfect. Finally the Angels finally broke through...

Times (Twitter link). Skaggs, 25, looked to be establishing himself as a long-term cog in the Halos’ rotation back in 2014 before...

The last time Tyler Skaggs was on the mound for the Angels

July 31st, 2014: That was the last time we saw Tyler Skaggs pitching for the Angels. It was his first year pitching for the Halos, and prior to that, he had just a few stints in the bigs with Arizona. 2014 was set to be the year we learned about the talent Skaggs possessed. But just as we were beginning to see what he was capable of, he was gone. Skaggs had been on the DL since...

LTBU:It Turns Out the Angels Can Win a Game

Turns out the Angels can actually beat a team. As long as the team isn’t the Houston Astros of course. With that team behind the in the horizon. The Angels are walk away with the first win against the Royals. The Angels put up a nice display of offense in this game. Especially in the first inning. A decent hitting display and showing they can still manufacture runs. Escobar singles...

Angels listening to offers on Hector Santiago

The Angels have received inquiries from a number of teams about left-hander Hector Santiago, and they’re willing to listen to offers for him, reports ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick (on Twitter). Santiago, 28, is earning $5 million this season and is controlled through the 2017 campaign via arbitration, so he’s more appealing than a number of arms that are of similar quality but either...

The Wind Up: Tyler Skaggs Returns

We’re not going to talk about Chris Sale, because come on. We’re not going to talk about Ken Griffey, Jr., even though I could write for hours on end about how much he meant to me growing up. There’s plenty out there on both. Instead, we remember Tyler Skaggs, right? Well, he pitches for the Los Angeles Angels organization, and if you haven’t noticed, virtually nobody is...

Mike Trout honors Ken Griffey Jr. with custom cleats after HOF induction

Ken Griffey Jr. played during the steroid era, but was highly regarded by many because he “played the game the right way” and did not give in to using performance enhancing drugs. Given the numbers he put up, that’s pretty impressive, and he was honored by getting inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame on Sunday. To honor Griffey, Mike Trout, who plays the same position as...

Jered Weaver's Future Is In The Los Angeles Angels Bullpen

This season has not been kind to the Los Angeles Angels. At 43 wins against 52 losses, the Halos are just a single game ahead of the last-place Oakland Athletics. Despite their recent surge — winning 10 of their last 12 games — the Angels are still 11.5 games back of the division-leading Texas Rangers, and there is little chance they capture the division. With the Toronto Blue...

Late: Angels Minor League All-Stars

The Angels collective minor league teams this year are each sitting below .500 (with the exception of Rookie Ball), so it’s difficult to get excited about players this year.  But regardless, there are some standouts that deserve to be recognized.  Keep in mind, this is not a top prospect list.  Some prospects rank rather high despite not putting up numbers.  These are simply...

What If Arte Moreno Had Splurged for Cespedes?

A few months ago, many Angel fans were dreaming about adding one of the premium free agent left fielders who were listening to bids this past off-season to the Halo roster, but those dreams poofed into the bitter reality of Arte Moreno’s new-found, tight-fisted, fiscal philosophy, and Halo Honks had to live with beginning the season with a Daniel Nava/Craig Gentry platoon in left...

Los Angeles Angels: the latest misfortune

If the big move that the Los Angeles Angels thought they were making was to bring in Tim Lincecum to aid and lead an already mediocre starting rotation, they were dreaming with their eyes open. After 2012, I felt like it was universally known that “The Freak” had already freaked out enough pitching coaches to actually secure a role on any staff; much less the Angels, who are...
