  2. By Adam Dodge, AngelsWin.com Senior Writer - It took nearly five months, but the Angels managed to pass the Oakland Athletics in the standings and will head into this weekend's four game showdown against their division rival with no worse than a share of first place in the American League West. At this moment the Angels hold a one-game lead with both teams in action tonight. Thursday's start to the series marks the beginning of the home stretch, one that figures to be the most exciting for the Angels in five years. While it is certainly possible the teams can split the four games and hea

  4. After a brief absence of summer vacations & traveling the past 6 weeks it's time to refocus our attention to our long time members and contributors as we celebrate our 10 Year Anniversary. Glen McKee known on the board for years as tin00can is a fan favorite of many. Glen delivers when it comes to adding both humor and color to thread topics and has become an amazing contributor on our blog in tandem with Nate Trop with their Point/Counterpoint satire features for our readers. I could go on an on about Glen, but let's hear a bit from the man himself so you can get to know him a little

    This series....

    Lots of games left. Remember 2004. Angels were 3 down with 9 to play. And let's consider history. The only division lead safe for a Halos team is a 5 game lead with 4 games left

    Can you imagine Iannetta trying to frame a Dickey pitch?

    Remember When...

    Santiago struggled at the beginning of the season and everyone wanted him in the bullpen? Meanwhile everyone shuddered at the idea of Shoemaker being next in line. Now they're our two best starters with Richards out. I love this ****ing team

  11. I'm hoping that he can get hot for the rest of the year and bring his numbers up to around .310/.400/.580 with 35ish HR.

  13. I believe "Colon" should always be capitalized whenever referring to the pitcher, otherwise it makes the entire sentence look shitty.

  14. I got picked to shoot the puck from center ice at a NY Rangers game at MSG. It was between the first and second period, and the ice was a disaster. Felt like I was on the sand at a beach. Missed the goal by two feet, and was booed by 18,000 people.

  16. Wow, funny you should ask. I've been putting together this slide show for awhile. For those of you who have never been to the Salton Sea, it's quite an amazing place. During the 70's it was called the California Riveria and the thought was it would be a major resort/destination area along with Palm Springs. Cities were constructed, roads were laid out...and people forgot one simple thing...the sea itself is a hazardous waste dump. It has no natural outlets, or inlets. It only came back to existence after a dike burst back in the early 1900's. Fascinating place. Feedback, as always, is

    It is a terrific show that keeps getting better. I hate Jon Voight, but he kills it in ever seen. I think he has it written into his contract that he must dance in every episode. That last episode was truly amazing. You knew you were watching a train wreck and just how great Ray was at acting kinda drunk, then watch it progress to him being really drunk, then in the end he is dancing with his son. That last scene where he is dancing with his son, it made the episode. His boy was hurting, it was a rough night, seeing all of his families issues laid out right in front of him, then Ray come

    Too bad he isn't like Weaver, who was able to come up to the Majors almost immediately. We need a starting pitcher bad. If I am not mistaken wasn't Jim Abbot like that as well?

  25. Stretching Rasmus out may be all they need to do, as it's certainly easy enough to slot in someone as a long innings reliever to take his spot, than to find someone for that rotation spot. Rasmus has been nails in the long innings role. Stretch him out to 75 pitches on Saturday and see what happens. He threw 51 pitches on Monday and perfectly slots into the Saturday spot.

  36. I'm happy to find a backup catcher better than Conger in the offseason, but Iannetta is having a seriously underrated year offensively and is on a friendly contract. He should be our guy. We have far bigger holes to fill than that.

    Anyone else watching this? What a great show! They are about 2/3 of the way thru season two. I recorded sunday night's episode, and watched it last night. That was one of the best episodes of any show I have ever seen. Ray's son wants to have a "family" birthday party at the house. Everyone is there, and they all bring their problems with them. After a little bit of drinking, EVERYTHING comes out. The final scene of a drunken Ray dancing to "Walk this Way" was classic.

    Velocity is only one component of pitching. Pitch location, pitch sequence, velocity modulation and location modulation also contribute to effective pitching. Santiago has performed very well because of a combination of factors and not exclusively on velocity. Me no worry. I am comfortable with Hector in a 1 game showdown.

  43. Too many reporters try to bait the people they are interviewing, or simply make something up and see how many people believe it. Everything is sound bytes and sensational headlines. All too often the headline is even misleading, and you find that the story doesn't say anything close to what the headline claims. This country is going to Hell in a handbasket, and there is plenty of blame to go around on both sides of the aisle - and among the press.

  45. Where do you get the idea he is narcissistic? Spending time reviewing his own delivery from game to game to pick apart his own flaws is not narcissism, it's quite the opposite. Narcissism would dictate he has no flaws and as such needs not to change. He also seems to not only understand the basic but advanced mechanics of pitching along with hitting and is using the information available on his opponents and verifying a game plan with his catchers. That seems like a man with a plan, even if his physical abilities sometimes are not cooperating. It appears he is very level headed and und
