• OC Register: Angels to face lineup questions when Andrelton Simmons returns

    ANAHEIM >> Interesting decisions are looming for the Angels. Andrelton Simmons, who is out with a sprained ankle, has been getting some live at-bats with the Angels’ squad in Long Beach. Manager Joe Maddon said Simmons “is a lot closer,” and he “wouldn’t rule it out,” that Simmons could be activated sometime during this weekend’s series against the Dodgers. Then what? David Fletcher, who has been playing shortstop in Simmons’ absence, is not leaving the lineup. “Fletch plays,” Maddon s

    I will also add that if Fletcher continues his awesomeness, La Stella proves that his 2019 season was no fluke & Ohtani continues to hit the way he has recently and the way we know he can this is going to be one hell of an offensive force. I mean, Castro and Stassi have what 6 home runs between them already. That would be a pace of nearly 40 HR in a regular season from the two. Goodwin seems to have also shown that like La Stella his 2019 was no fluke as well. Now if we can ju

    • Could Dylan Bundy be better than we think?
      Let's face it, at this point of the offseason, none of us thought our biggest pitching acquisitions would be Bundy and Teheran. Knowing that not much else appears to be on the horizon any time soon, I started to dig in to Bundy a little bit more. For whatever reason, I kept thinking about a correlation between Bundy and Arrieta for the obvious reasons. Not only were they both Orioles pitching in Baltimore's bandbox, but they were also both promising young talents that never really materialized in Baltimore. On top of that they both ended up on a Joe Maddon coached team, which makes me think that Maddon could have been a reason for the Bundy trade (Maddon was hired by the Cubs in 2014 after the Cubs acquired Arrieta at the 2013 TDL).  

      So, I started to look deeper and it seems the two have some similarities just based on their top level peripherals.

      Bundy - Age 26 Season

      4.79 ERA


      4.73 FIP


      1.355 WHIP


      9.0 H/9


      1.6 HR/9


      3.2 BB/9


      9.0 SO/9


      Arrieta - Age 26 Season

      6.20 ERA


      4.05 FIP


      1.369 WHIP


      9.6 H/9


      1.3 HR/9


      2.7 BB/9


      8.6 SO/9


      Now, when looking into Bundy more, I came across this article from Going Deep: https://www.pitcherlist.com/going-deep-dylan-bundy-should-make-a-few-simple-changes/

      To summarize, the article talks about a comparison between Bundy and Corbin and the desire for Bundy to adjust his pitch mix with increases in slider and changeup usage. The article also notes a change in Bundy's pitch mix starting at the end of 2019. Bundy significantly bumped up his sinker usage, which helped his HR/FB and HR/9 to come down to earth (and Bundy has always been killed by the long ball against his four seamer). Not only that, Bundy also saw improved changes to his ERA indicators as well as improvements to his fastball after the change, which has always been his worst pitch. The author wonders what a sinker, slider, changeup combination would look like for Bundy considering he began inducing many more groundballs instead of hard hit fly balls off his four seamer that resulted in HR's in Camden. 

      Now I am not saying that Bundy is going to become Arrieta, far from it. Arrieta has always thrown his sinker pretty regularly and Bundy will probably never have the type of sinker that Arrieta uses. But I also think Bundy can be much better for a few reasons:

      No longer pitching in Camden.


      Callaway and Maddon


      Increased usage of a sinker/slider/changeup combination


      Time will tell.

      Goodwin seems to have also shown that like La Stella his 2019 was no fluke as well.

      Now if we can just get production out of one of Adell or Upton, this may become the best lineup in baseball. Even Pujols hasn't been too shabby!

    It's a (new) New Years in July

    I recently came across an internet meme that said "January 1st, 2020: I didn't stay up late that night for all this shit to happen". And the way this year has gone, nothing could be more true. The good news is that we have baseball coming back. And, thinking about the baseball season, every year, near the end of June, the Angels do a weekend promotion called "Christmas in June". By that logic, that makes it New Years in July!. So, mark tonight down: July 24, 2020. I say we stay up late

    #28 – July 12, 2019: The Angels Honor Tyler Skaggs with a No-Hitter

    If Hollywood hired a writer to write the perfect script for a baseball movie, it couldn’t have done better than what actually happened at Angel Stadium on Friday, July 12, 2019. To set the stage, the Angels were struggling all season long through July 1st, barely holding onto a .500 record. While on the road in Texas, the Angels awoke to the tragic news that their friend, their teammate, their pitcher, Tyler Skaggs had died of an accidental drug overdose in his hotel room. The Angels a

    27 for Number 27: 27 Amazing Trout Stats (#26-27: WAR per 162 games played & Summary)

    By Jonathan Northrop, AngelsWin.com Columnist #26: WAR per 162 games I’m saving my favorite one for the penultimate entry: WAR per 162 games played. This stat, which for some reason isn’t used by any of the statistical sites, measures quality: that is, how good a player is per 162 games played, measured by WAR. The formula is simple: Career WAR divided by 162 games. With the MLB and MLBPA officially put in place a 60-game regular season with the standard 10-team playoff, the Yankees (+

    Shohei Ohtani deadlifts unbelievable amount of weight, proving he's at full strength (Video)

    Angels slugger and superstar pitcher Shohei Ohtani dealt with both knee and elbow injuries toward the end of last season, but he appears to have fully recovered from both of those. We say that because there’s one weightlifting exercise that truly involves nearly every muscle in one’s body — with elbows and knees both playing a key part. In part, the knees — as well as one’s back — play a major role in load bearing. The deadlift, as it’s called, is a functional exercise that is a great
