Is Hector Santiago trade bait?

Hector Santiago turned in another solid performance Sunday, holding the Red Sox offense to three runs in 6⅔ innings of work. The outing was Santiago’s fourth consecutive quality start and his sixth overall in nine tries. The southpaw has now allowed three runs or fewer in eight of his nine starts on the year, and owns a staff-best 2.47 ERA as a result. As I see it, there are...

Want an Angels trade? Wait awhile

Everyone wants the Angels to make a trade desperately. At least I assume everyone does. Angels fans definitely do, but I imagine fans of other teams do as well because nobody can possibly enjoy watching a lineup as comically inept as the Angels lineup. Even AL West rivals have to see that this isn’t the kind of incompetence that you mock and take glee in but rather the kind that you...

Angels Quote of the Day: Jered Weaver was doing what to the ball?

After his last successful start, Jered Weaver was telling Alden Gonzalez of what he did to solve his early season problems: “I’m just not jerking off the ball anymore.” Uh, well, yeah. That seems like a bad idea. I was never a pitcher, but I’m pretty sure that is not what you are supposed to do to the ball. So what are you supposed to do? “My front side was kind...
