The Angels over the off-season loaded up for Ranger. The Texas Rangers have won the AL West the last 2 straight years and also have been to the World Series in both seasons. The Angels looking to get back to their first Fall Classic since winning it all in 2002 first went out and took …
It’s still wild to me that the Los Angeles Angels snapped up Albert Pujols and C.J. Wilson at pretty much the same time. I went to bed a few Wednesdays ago with both of those players available on the free-agent market. When I woke up, the Angels had signed the best free-agent position player, and …
Jered Weaver has been reprimanded for throwing a pitch in the vicinity of Alex Avila’s head during Sunday’s 3-2 loss to the Detroit Tigers.

Congratulations to Ervin Santana on pitching his first career no-hitter against the Cleveland Indians Wednesday for a 3-1 Halos victory.
It wasn’t pretty, but he struck out 10 and allowed only two base runners all day. Erick Aybar committed an error on the very first batter, totally screwing up the perfecto, but Santana walked Lonnie Chisenhall…

After 17 seasons in the game, Garret Anderson is hanging up his glove. Funny, we totally thought he retired already.
The 38-year-old left fielder broke into the majors back in 1994 and ended up compiling more than 2,500 hits, 287 home runs, and a career batting average of .293. He also enjoyed a World Series title with [...]
Baseball is a game of stats. Some stats really matter when judging a player’s ability and worth and there are some stats that really don’t. Those stats have been debated by everyone from sabermatricians over Twitter to your average fans sitting down in the bagel shop on a Sunday morning.
One stat for me that doesn’t matter and completely drive me nuts [...]
The man responsible for the deaths of the late Los Angeles Angels pitcher Nick Adenhart and two of his friends in a terrible drunken driving crash last year was finally sentenced to 51 years to life in prison Wednesday.
Adenhart, a promising rookie, was killed on April 9, 2009 along with his friends 20-year-old Courtney Stewart and 25-year-old Henry Pearson, [...]
Today marks the one year anniversary of the loss of Nick Adenhart. He was taken from us at such a young age, with so much going for him. He had just pitched his breakout game in the Major Leagues and he had just began to attain the dream he’s had since he was a child. He pitched the best start of his major league career…
