DraftKings: In Trout We Trust

While Bryce Harper is ice cold, Major League Baseball's other superstar, Mike Trout, is heating up. Over the last seven days, Trout is batting .370 with two home runs and gets a cake matchup on Tuesday night. It may be tough to fit Trout into your lineup given his price tag, but it's going to be worth it. Trout is like a tall glass of water. He's a beacon of light on the hill. A...

The NiTro circus visited the Rangers tonight and gave the Angels a 2-0 victory

Angels 2  Rangers 0 The Angels came into Arlington today for a quick little road trip series with the Rangers, and they did so riding a high from a good baseball weekend.

Tim Lincecum is Worth the Gamble to the Los Angeles Angles

The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim have been suffering at the hands of their injury-ridden bullpen. Left-hander C.J. Wilson’s run-in with shoulder tendonitis has placed him on the unavailable list, alongside Craig Gentry and Cliff Pennington to name a few.

Diagnosing the Angels: Mike Trout Can’t Do It All

Imagine having the best baseball player in the league and it mattering very little. That’s largely been the case for the Los Angeles Angels since 2012 when Mike Trout made his debut. In that time, he’s taken home the Rookie of the Year and was named the AL’s Most Valuable Player. He’s finished runner-up for the latter three times, and if Manny Machado has anything to say...

Angels GM says team has not discussed trading Mike Trout

No, folks, Mike Trout is not going to be traded any time soon. With the Los Angeles Angels off to an 18-22 start and looking nothing like a contender, some outsiders raised the question of whether the team would entertain trading Trout for a huge prospect haul to allow them to rebuild. Perhaps, they reason, the Angels would be willing to move their star center fielder. So, Angels...

Mike Morin Has Baseball’s Silliest Changeup

The slowest changeup thrown by an Angels pitcher does not belong to Jered Weaver, he of the 82-mph fastball. No, it belongs to right-handed reliever Mike Morin, whose fastball has touched 95 this year. And for that reason, I hereby declare Mike Morin’s changeup to be The Silliest Changeup in Baseball. I’ve been wanting to write about this for a while, but despite solid peripherals...
