The Angels may not spend again this winter

Last off-season was the most disappointing for Angels fans since 2010, the year Tony Reagins showed up inexplicably late to the winter meetings, fled on foot to avoid having an interview with Jon Heyman and failed to sign the two players who basically were linked as strong as any player could be linked, to the Angels (Carl Crawford and Adrian Beltre). That offseason proved to be...

Perhaps It’s Time for a Different Approach in Left Field

Ji-Man Choi went 4-for-4 in his game with the Salt Lake Bees yesterday, and the Korean is now hitting .343 in 48 games for the Triple-A club, and it makes me wonder what he could have done with the Angels if he had been given regular playing time. This year, there have been nine players who have played in left field for the Angels, and none of them have gotten any regular playing...
