Mike Trout Avoids Brock Holt’s Tag With Amazing Swim Move Slide (Video)

Mike Trout is pretty good at baseball. But you already knew that. Trout, who is widely considered the best player on the planet, showcased his athleticism Friday with an amazing slide in the Los Angeles Angels’ game against the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park. The play looked like something out of “The Matrix,” though a challenge was required to overturn the call. Trout...

The Los Angeles Angels are finally finding their groove

Jered Weaver (photo credit: Stephen Dunn/Getty Images North America) The Los Angeles Angels (21-20) seem to be pulling themselves out of an early season gutter. They have won seven out of their last 10 games. Their Ace, Jered Weaver’s ERA is dipping down to a respectable level, 4.37. And Kole Calhoun is making everyone in Halo nation forget about Josh Hamilton. The Angels...

Game 42 Preview: Angels at Red Sox

An inventory of the Angels trade assets

It’s no secret the Angels will be (and currently are) on the hunt for offense come trading season. Even with Chris Iannetta heating up and Pujols’ inevitable “resurgence” (really, it just means he won’t be as bad as he has been) the Angels offense would merely grade out as weak. They’ll be on the lookout for a left fielder and likely a DH that could help propel the offense...

Arguing with ourselves: The wretched Angels offense

Welcome to the 2015 version of the Los Angeles Angels. I’ll bet most of the fans coming into this season didn’t expect to see the Angels offense be the team’s largest question mark. Or, in all actuality, it’s only question mark. It’s crazy, right? It is borderline absurd even that of all the things that fans have come to complain about over the last few years, the offense...

Angels get good news on Albert Pujols' wrist after HBP

Los Angeles Angels slugger Albert Pujols left Wednesday night's game early after taking a pitch from Toronto Blue Jays starter Drew Hutchison off the left wrist. After the HBP, Pujols left the game the following inning, replaced in the lineup by Marc Krauss.  The team's initial diagnosis was just a 'bruise', but team doctors administered tests just to be certain. Thankfully for...

Strong pitching keeping the Angels afloat early this season.

So 38 games into the season the Angels are an uninspiring 19-19.  There have been some very positive things so far this season, but there also has been some very negative things. For sure there have been so surprises and there also has most definitely been some major disappointments. So let’s discuss the good, the bad, and the ugly so far in this 2015 season, and please feel free...

Angels trade targets to be avoided

The Angels need to make a trade. We all know this. The repeated display of offensive ineptitude is going to make the Angels buyers on the upcoming trade market, but what exactly are they going to buy? No offense to Jerry Dipoto, but the trades he made to round out the lineup last offseason didn’t exactly pan out (glares at Matt Joyce). It isn’t entirely clear at this point who...

WATCH: Josh Donaldson unleashes profanity on Angels

Angels plan to use Calhoun at cleanup for a while

Los Angeles Angels manager Mike Scioscia plugged Kole Calhoun behind Albert Pujols in his lineup Monday afternoon against the Toronto Blue Jays, and while that might seem surprising, it's something that won't be going away anytime soon. A few weeks back, Scioscia put Calhoun at the #4 spot when Pujols was dealing with a minor injury. This time around, he told Jeff Fletcher of the...

Can the Los Angeles Angels survive the Josh Hamilton divorce?

Josh Hamilton The relationship between Josh Hamilton and the Los Angeles Angels was rocky to say the least. Their divorce was ugly, and the Angels definitely lost the settlement in severance court when they agreed to pay Hamilton millions to play for another team. Last month the Halos traded the former number one draft pick to the Texas Rangers in exchange for about $6 million over...

Pujols okay after leg tweak, will be used carefully in Toronto

The Los Angeles Angles surely don't need Albert Pujols to miss any time, considering their offensive issues thus far in 2015. Thankfully, after coming up a bit lame on Sunday afternoon on a slide into second base, the slugger doesn't seem to have done anything serious to his left leg. As Jeff Fletcher of the O.C. Register reported, Albert said he was fine - and actually, "...Pujols...

Los Angeles Angels: Prize Trout

Trout is hitting a solid .289 on the young 2015 season, but his bat was not even needed last night. It would be cliché for me to tell you that the Los Angeles Angels have an angel in their outfield. But if you watched the reigning American League MVP, Mike Trout play last night, then you might reconsider the whole cliché ordeal. May 13, 2015 was Trout’s most recent example of...
