    Facing a lefty in Anaheim’s C.J. Wilson on Friday, the Mariners have Jason Bay leading off for the first time in his career.

    Dec 7, 2012, 10:47 AM EDT

    Zack Greinke

    Early in the offseason the Angels were shopping Ervin Santana (who they eventually traded) and Dan Haren (whose option they eventually declined) because they wanted to clear payroll space to re-sign Zack Greinke, making that the focus of their winter. Unfortunately for the Angels once Greinke actually hit the open market and the offers started…

    Edwin Jackson

    The Angels are still holding out hope to retain free agent right-hander Zack Greinke, but they are also considering some backup plans in case things don’t work out. With that in mind, CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman reports that they are one of many teams in the mix for free agent right-hander Edwin Jackson. Jackson, 29,…

    Dan Haren Getty

    If you thought the drama involving Dan Haren yesterday was crazy from an outsider’s perspective, just imagine being the guy in the middle of it all. Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com caught up with Haren late last night after the proposed deal with the Cubs fell through and the Angels bought out his $15.5 million option…

    I stopped caring about the Gold Glove awards sometime between designated hitter Rafael Palmeiro winning one as a “first baseman” and Derek Jeter winning five as a “shortstop” but MLB has announced three (or four) finalists per league at each position and here they are: (Note: Coaches and managers vote for the Gold Glove award…

One complaint first. It’s the same complaint I lodge every…

  17. Jered Weaver excellent in first start back from right biceps tendinitis

    Sep 13, 2012, 7:53 PM EDT

    Jered Weaver AP

    It looks like some rest was just what the doctor ordered for Jered Weaver, as he helped the Angels avoid a sweep by blanking the Athletics 6-0 this afternoon. Weaver, who was skipped in the rotation last week due to right biceps tendinitis, allowed just two hits over seven shutout innings while striking out nine…

  19. The Dodgers are gonna get big media money soon, but let’s not go crazy

    old TV

    The answer to any question about a baseball team’s increased spending these days is “well, they have a new local TV deal in the offing, and that will bring big money.”  It’s why the Angels could easily afford C.J. Wilson and Albert Pujols in one offseason. It’s why the Phillies, despite a big payroll already,…

    The Rays couldn’t manage so much as a hit or a walk Wednesday in Felix Hernandez‘s perfect game, but look at what they did to the Angels’ starters in four games since: Dan Haren: 3 2/3 IP, 7 H, 5 ER Jered Weaver: 3 IP, 8 H, 9 ER C.J. Wilson: 4 2/3 IP, 6…

  21. Struggling Dan Haren to have next turn skipped

    Aug 17, 2012, 8:02 PM EDT

    New York Yankees' Derek Lowe pitches to Texas Rangers during their MLB American League baseball game in New York

    Yankees 8, Rangers 2: I suppose the critical mass of people mocking the Yankees’ pickup of Derek Lowe was just too delicious for God or Loki or Fate or whatever controls our world to pass up, because He/it/whatever decided to play it funny with us and allow Mr. Lowe to toss four scoreless innings in…

    Ryan Dempster

    Rangers 15, Angels 9: Ryan Dempster was shelled in his Rangers debut, but it didn’t matter because C.J. Wilson was shelled too. Josh Hamilton drove in four. You have to wonder if Wednesday night’s game was some kind of turning point in this race. Rockies 8, Cardinals 2: Homers in four straight games for Josh…

  24. Ryan Dempster gets bombed, Rangers win anyway

    Ryan Dempster

    Making his Rangers debut, Ryan Dempster surrendered eight runs Thursday against the Angels, yet opposing starter C.J. Wilson was just as bad and Texas won a shootout 15-9.

    Jean Segura, Mike Olt

    Called up from Double-A late last night, Rangers prospect Mike Olt is making his big-league debut tonight starting at first base and batting eighth. Olt was primarily a third baseman in the minors and projects as a good defender there long term, but the Rangers already have one of the league’s best all-around third basemen…
