Angels are waiting on Richards, Heaney

With the trade deadline just over a month away, the Angels still find themselves in a holding pattern as to whether or not they intend to sell, buy or stand pat.  Typically, a last place team with a bloated payroll and no minor league system would be an easy call, sell everything you can and start from scratch.  But it isn’t that easy for the Angels.  The problem, whether its...

Garrett Richards Changeup Watch

The Angels lost to the Cubs 9-0 on Monday. Garrett Richards didn’t allow all of those runs, but he did allow more than zero runs, so he took the loss. He needed 97 pitches to go five innings, and he allowed six hits and three walks, so it’s not like Richards just had the game of his life.

Fast forward two years, and the hope now is that he’ll “rebound” from...
