  • A Fighting Farewell (1993): The Story Behind the Robin Ventura/Nolan Ryan Fight

    By Rob Goldman, AngelsWin.com Contributor Of all of Nolan Ryan's achievements, few garnered more attention than the 20-second skirmish between Ryan and veteran third baseman Robin Ventura in 1993. The fight has come to symbolize his Texas toughness, and it made Ryan a symbol of middle-age defiance. Much has been made about the "Ventura Fight" but most don't realize its roots started three years earlier in Florida. In the 1990s, Chicago's Craig Grebeck was one of baseball's smalles

    The Future of the Angels Outfield

    By Jonathan Northrop, AngelsWin.com Senior Writer The emergence of Taylor Ward as an elite hitter--as well as the slow development of Adell--has put a bit of a crimp in the Angels outfield outlook. Before the year, it was reasonable to assume that the Angels would platoon Ward, Marsh, and Adell in the corner spots, and let them hack it out for playing time all year long. Even last year, I presented various configurations on how the Angels could platoon Marsh and Adell with Upton, assuming W

    I'm Starting to Believe - A Stroll through Angels History and a Look at the 2022 Club

    By Jonathan Northrop (@Angelsjunky), AngelsWin.com Senior Writer Introduction Before the season began, I predicted that the Angels would go 91-71, with a good chance of earning a wildcard berth. At the time, I doubted my own prediction - as @Dochalo half-jokingly remarked, he and I did the same thing every year: Wrote a long, stat-heavy post that showed how the Angels could be better than expected. And they never were. But this year seems different - and more so, I'm starting to b

    • Clubhouse Chemistry
      Like a lot of other people, I kind of laughed it off and ignored Perry Minasian's comments about clubhouse chemistry, makeup, etc. but this Noah Syndergaard post-game quote stood out tonight:

      "We all mesh really well. And Perry — I don’t know what kind of formula he has —  but everybody in this clubhouse, we’re all pulling for another, we’re all rooting [for another], we’re all trying to make each other better. So it’s a lot of fun and it’s just a really awesome thing to be a part of."

      AA preached that same clubhouse chemistry and makeup stuff in Atlanta when Perry was there, and Perry has always spoken about being in the clubhouse growing up and seeing it make an impact. To add on, I just saw Twins players discussing the same thing impacting their own club this season compared to last season.

      So it's not quantifiable, but I'm starting to buy into this idea/concept/theory.

      In the 1990s, Chicago's Craig Grebeck was one of baseball's smallest everyday players. Just 5'7", he compensated for his lack of stature with the attitude of Goliath.

    OC Register: Angels right-hander Chris Rodriguez to miss much of 2022 after shoulder surgery

    CARLSBAD — On the first day that the Angels could officially begin adding pitchers, they revealed that they lost one. Chris Rodriguez, who had emerged as a promising option either as a starter or reliever in 2021, will be out for most, if not all, of 2022 after undergoing right capsule surgery. General Manager Perry Minasian said on Monday, the first day of the annual GM Meetings, that Rodriguez had exploratory surgery on his shoulder last month, and doctors saw “some things that needed to be

    Is anyone else worried about Taylor Ward's injury?

    I mean he's been one of the best if not these best player in MLB so our luck would have it that he's got a grade II or III shoulder stinger and it out for a couple months to the entire season. Here's the injury in case you missed it.  Hoping and praying for the best. We've lost four games against sub .500 with him. I can't imagine what this team would look like without him for a significant period of time.  Whenever the Angels go quiet on the injury front, there's good reason to b
