Boxscore Breakdown #156: One-Run Kings – Angels 5, A’s 4

I guess we maybe should have guessed that the Angels would emerge victorious in a one-run game at least once this series. The A’s have had far and away the worst luck of any team this season in close games, going 18–34 (.346) in one-run contests. If you extend that back to last year’s trade deadline—i.e. the Yoenis Cespedes trade—Oakland is an even worse 24-49 (.329), making...

Angels win sixth straight on walk-off, keep pressure on Texas

  Pinch-hitter David Murphy drove a bases-loaded single into left field to end it, and the Los Angeles Angels kept the pressure on in the AL wild-card race with their sixth consecutive victory, 5-4 over the Oakland Athletics on Monday night. Albert Pujols tied it with his 558th career homer in the sixth inning for the Angels, who have won nine of 11 during their majors-best 17-8...

Murphy would 'love' to stay with Angels, but that might not happen

The Los Angeles Angels' acquisition of David Murphy from the Cleveland Indians in a pre-July 31 deal has paid off relatively well. After hitting a three-run home run against Seattle Mariners ace Felix Hernandez on Tuesday night, a hit that directly led to the Halos picking up a big win, Murphy is slashing .263/.282/.412 since heading to So*Cal. His contract has a club option for...

Boxscore Breakdown #144: The Battered King – Angels 4, Mariners 3

Not sure I’m a fan of this new “win every game by one run” thing, but whatever works at this point is gold. Beggars can’t be choosers, especially when taking on King Felix. The club’s four-run output on Tuesday tripled their season run total against Hernandez, and marked the first time since August 2013—a span of 11 starts!—that the Halos managed to strap him with a...

Goodbye, Good Guy: Indians trade OF David Murphy

On the heels of a five-game losing streak, and with talk of possible trades circulating for days, the Indians made a move Tuesday evening, sending left-handed outfielder David Murphy, as well as cash considerations, to the Los Angeles Angels in exchange for Double-A shortstop Eric Stamets. Twenty-three-year-old Stamets is a native of Dublin, Ohio who bats and throws right-handed...

Angels fill outfield, add David Murphy & David DeJesus

The Angels have recently stormed back to take over the AL West lead, largely thanks to their offense, but outside of Mike Trout, the outfield has been a major issue. Collin Cowgill is on the 60 day DL and Matt Joyce is on the 7 day concussion DL, but the Angels may be happy about the second as he had produced just a 0.2 WAR this year. Of others Daniel Robertson has been worth 0.0...

Murphy eager for return to Texas

CLEVELAND -- David Murphy is eager for Friday when the Indians begin a four-game series at Texas. It will be a homecoming for Murphy, who spent six-plus seasons with the Rangers before signing with the Indians during the offseason. "I'm excited to sleep in my own bed, stay in my house for a few days and see family," said Murphy, who still has a house in the Dallas suburb of Southlake...

Opening Day For The Indians

Its Opening Day Folks! Finally! And although the Indians don’t open their season until much of the East Coast is in bed, I figured some preview for this season was in order. Now, every year I say that we should be positive. But this year, I mean it! The Indians surpassed even the most optimistic projections last season, and this year, the Indians will return a somewhat-similar...

Pluto: David Murphy’s BABIP incredibly low

The Indians made their first major move of the offseason earlier this week when they signed outfielder David Murphy to a two-year deal with an option for a third. The left-handed Murphy will likely platoon in right field with returnee Ryan Raburn. Murphy played a full-time role in Texas last season, but he regressed from his relative consistent and proven track record, so why was...
