Are the Angels For Real?

The Angels are having a scorching hot July. They are now 11-2 on the month and the back end of June watched similar domination of their opponents posting an outstanding 18-4 record over the last...

Your 2014 Los Angeles Angels

I'm sure we've all moved on as the regular season winds down and the playoffs begin without our favorite team. I figured it was time to do a roster review and make projections on what the 2014...

Dipoto Report Card: Take a deep breath edition

As an Angels fan I'm just trying to claw through the rest of this pathetic season. At this point I'm numb to the losses. I accepted this team was in serious trouble a couple of months ago. We...

Trading Trumbo

In this tumultuous season where the Angels have performed at levels ranging from terrible to good, I've come to terms with the fact that this team is destined for mediocrity this season. Even in a...

Angels give Trout $510,000 Contract

72

I hope they have something bigger planned because this seems unnecessary. Consider Pujols got triple money in his second year in St. Louis. I'm uncertain why the Angels didn't throw in more money in an act of good faith.

Yankees Sign Derek Lowe. Angels Do Not.

How the Pujols Deal Went Down. Fascinating!

112

A play by play on how the deal went down. What I found most interesting was this quote here: Moreno, who watched the Angels fall short in recent years trying to lure free agents Carl Crawford, Mark Teixeira, Adrian Beltre and CC Sabathia, took the reins. He made two impassioned calls to Pujols. He told Pujols that they planned to also sign Wilson. They weren't going to stop being aggressive in the market until they won a World Series championship, their first since 2002 and first under Moren0. This was all Arte.
