The Angels didn't have any news to announce by the time they scooted off for dinner plans on the first day of the Winter Meetings. But that doesn't mean they don't have an appetite.

AngelsWin.com 2017 Season Primer Part V: Bullpen

By Robert Cunningham, AngelsWin.com Senior Columnist -  Author’s Note: If you missed the first three installments you can find Part I here, Part II here, Part III here, and Part IV here. In a season where the starting rotation was decimated, the Angels bullpen did not fare much better, ranking 26th in K%-BB% among all Major League teams. Part of this issue was the fact...

Albert Pujols has surgery on right foot to repair plantar fasciitis

It’s a testament to his declining health but also his willingness to play through injuries. Albert Pujols has underwhelmed since coming to the Angels largely due to age and health. It appears those injuries won’t be going away anytime soon. Two days ago, Pujols had surgery to repair the plantar fascia in his right foot. As for the timing, there is this bit of news. ...

Garrett Richards got married in Cabo last night, congrats to the newlyweds!

If you’ve followed certain Angels social media accounts lately, you’ve probably noticed that a handful of players (Trout, Weaver, Heaney, to name a few) are down in Mexico this week, having a grand ol’ time. They aren’t down there for some run-of-the-mill offseason fun and camaraderie, though. They are down there to see one of their own, Halos hurler Garrett Richards, get...

AngelsWin.com's Top 30 Los Angeles Angels Prospects

By Scotty Allen, AngelsWin.com Staff Writer -   Following Angels prospects requires an unhealthy obsession with uncertain possibilities, an unjustifiable optimism in a brighter future, a unnatural curiosity and an eye to see things that may or may not be there.  And so of course, only a few Angel fans are actually crazy enough to undertake this mission.  From myself (going...

The New CBA: How It Affects the Angels

It went right down to the deadline, but the players, owners, and Rob Manfred worked out a new Collective Bargaining Agreement and managed to avoid a work stoppage before the always exciting Winter Meetings. Some details about the new CBA are still in the dark, but most of what has been revealed looks to be what was expected. Here’s a look at all that has been reported and how it...

The Angels’ Cheap Bet on Spin

The Angels presently project to have baseball’s worst bullpen. Now, they know it’s a potential weakness, and they’re going to make further moves to try to shore things up, but some time ago the front office did re-sign Andrew Bailey for a year and $1 million. It’s terribly unexciting, and this isn’t even new. Again: old transaction! But I thought about this when I read...

The Angels Were the Best at Something

The Angels: what a case study in weird this team is. Here are a few things to consider about them, if this is your first time reading about baseball: The Angels have the best player in baseball, Mike Trout. The Angels, as a whole, are not a good team. The Angels have a pitching staff held together by chewing gum, rubber bands, and Cam Bedrosian. The Angels have a farm system held...

Is There Hope for the Los Angeles Angels in 2017?

The Los Angeles Angels didn’t have much luck this past season. They were also pretty bad, regardless. And as we’ve learned almost yearly, having the best baseball player on the planet (and now two-time MVP) can only get you so far. Just three seasons ago, the Angels won 98 games and the AL West. One year later, they were one win away from returning to the postseason. Then this...

Los Angeles Angels top prospects

It’s that time of the year again to start thinking about top prospects. The Los Angeles Angels had a pretty tough 2016 season and are ready to start fresh in 2017. They will gain around $40 mil in salary relief from the expiring contracts of Jered Weaver & CJ Wilson, so they could potentially have a lot of shopping to do. Let’s take a look at a few of the Angels top prospects...

Assembling a Free Agent Lineup: Matt Joyce

This is the end, in all likelihood. Last Sunday, we began constructing our lineup comprised of free agents. Today, we move on to our final position: right field. Designated hitter notwithstanding, of course. And let this serve as the final disclaimer: José Bautista will not be the option we discuss. Like Dexter Fowler, he’s signing somewhere—and for tons of money. So let...

Oakland writer John Hickey voted Mike Trout 7th for MVP

Mike Trout won the 2016 AL MVP award, the Baseball Writers Association of America announced on Thursday. The honor marks the second of Trout’s career, although I’ll argue it should be his fourth (yes – he deserved in 2012 and 2013 over Miggy). Trout won the award over Mookie Betts, who finished second. Trout received 19th 1st-place votes, 8 second-place votes and 356 points...

MLB scout believes Yankees are gearing up for Mike Trout trade

The Los Angeles Angels had a down year in 2016, but Mike Trout continued to show why many have labeled him the best player in baseball. It would seem crazy for the Angels to consider trading the 25-year-old superstar, but one scout believes the richest team in baseball is going to try to convince L.A.’s brass to do just that. After the New York Yankees traded Aroldis Chapman and...

The Angels’ Path to Contention

Two relevant facts here are indisputable. One, in this most recent season, the Angels were bad. They won 74 games. By BaseRuns, they “should have” won 71 games. That made them about as good as the Twins and the Braves. Horrible season. Two, baseball fans love a blockbuster. It’s not even unique to baseball. Sports fans love a blockbuster. They love seeing them, they love thinking...

The Wind Up: Another Year, Another Team for Cameron Maybin

We’ve never seen the Cameron Maybin we were supposed to. And we’re likely never going to. Over parts of 10 seasons, he’s assumed the same role of countless others before him: journeyman. The player who ups his value for half a season, then gets moved along. Then does it again. And again. But Cameron Maybin was never supposed to be just any journeyman. No, the outfielder was...
