MLB Trade Deadline: Will the Angels Sell Any Players?

There is no question now that the Angels will not finish the season in a playoff position, given that they are over 10 games back, so the main question for fans as we approach the July 31st MLB trade deadline is if they will sell and who will they sell. When looking at who they will sell it really boils down to 4 players: Joe Smith, Hector Santiago, Matt Shoemaker, and Yunel Escobar...

Albert Pujols is better than you think he is

Is The Machine still able to produce for the Angels? Before the 2016 season even got started, ESPN dubbed the Albert Pujols contract as the "worst in baseball".  Most casual fans love having him on the team and probably enjoy that smirk on his face when he bats, as well as the times he does hit a powerful long ball and climbs the all-time list of most career home runs.  Pretty...

MLB Trade rumors: Teams are interested in Matt Shoemaker, and the Angels are listening

2016 is Matt Shoemaker’s year. After coming on to the scene in 2014 with a ROY campaign season, he failed to build on that success in ‘15, making him one of the outsiders looking in coming into Spring Training last February. Some out-of-the-blue injuries of various earth-shaking magnitudes jumbled up that rotation right quick, and Shoemaker saw his lane and took it. After a...

The Angels Play Under Protest as they suffer a lost.

The Angels fall short. It seemed a little bush league on a certain play. That’s another talk though. Matt Shoemaker had a good outing, but the Angels weren’t able to hold the Kansas City Royals. The game opens up pretty normal. Two good pitchers facing each other in the first few innings. After a few outs Matt Shoemaker seemed perfect. Finally the Angels finally broke through...

Angels listening to offers on Hector Santiago

The Angels have received inquiries from a number of teams about left-hander Hector Santiago, and they’re willing to listen to offers for him, reports ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick (on Twitter). Santiago, 28, is earning $5 million this season and is controlled through the 2017 campaign via arbitration, so he’s more appealing than a number of arms that are of similar quality but either...

Given the numbers he put up, that’s pretty impressive, and he was honored by getting inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame on Sunday. To honor Griffey, Mike Trout, who plays the same position as...

Despite their recent surge — winning 10 of their last 12 games — the Angels are still 11.5 games back of the division-leading Texas Rangers, and there is little chance they capture the division.
