    Apr 1, 2014, 4:16 PM EDT

    Atlanta Braves v Philadelphia Phillies

    Ryan Howard batted cleanup for the Phillies on Opening Day, going 2-for-5 with a walk (and three strikeouts) in a wild 14-10 win over the Rangers, but manager Ryne Sandberg is switching things up for Game 2 tonight.

    Between now and Opening Day, HardballTalk will take a look at each of baseball’s 30 teams, asking the key questions, the not-so-key questions, and generally breaking down their chances for the 2014 season.

  3. Masahiro Tanaka will help, but the Yankees need much more than him to be a contender

    The offseason distorts things. The wintertime focus on individual player signings and the underlying optimism everyone seems to have about the prospects of their local nine often makes us forget that, in baseball, one player cannot make the difference between winning and losing. Heck, sometimes even three players don’t. Just ask Albert Pujols, Josh Hamilton,…

  4. The Angels are interested in Masahiro Tanaka

    Jan 2, 2014, 9:17 AM EDT

    Lots of teams are, but now that he’s posted it’s worth keeping track of who is actually going to be in on the bidding. The Angels are one of those teams, says Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times. A rotation that goes Jered Weaver–C.J. Wilson-Tanaka would be pretty sweet in the crazy-competitive AL West.…

  5. D’backs, Angels, White Sox agree to three-team Mark Trumbo deal

    Dec 10, 2013, 3:00 PM EDT

    Mark Trumbo

    3:00 p.m. EST update: A source told the Arizona Republic’s Nick Piecoro that the deal is done. The Diamondbacks will get Trumbo and two players to be named, and they give outfielder Adam Eaton to the White Sox and left-hander Tyler Skaggs to the Angels. Left-hander Hector Santiago will go from Chicago to Anaheim. Trumbo…

  6. With little payroll maneuverability, Angels may have to trade to bolster rotation

    Nov 24, 2013, 10:35 PM EDT

    trumbo getty

    The Angels signed reliever Joe Smith to a three-year, $15.75 million deal on Saturday, just a day after adding third baseman David Freese and reliever Fernando Salas in a trade for Peter Bourjos and prospect Randal Grichuk. As a result, the Angels have about $8 million left before hitting the $189 million luxury tax threshold,…

  7. Red Sox left-handed hitters were the key to overcoming David Price

    Oct 5, 2013, 9:03 PM EDT

    Division Series - Tampa Bay Rays v Boston Red Sox - Game Two

    During the regular season, Rays left-handed starter David Price was murder on left-handed hitters, holding them to a .489 OPS, the sixth-best OPS allowed to lefties among qualified starters. (The others: Chris Sale, Matt Harvey, Clayton Kershaw, C.J. Wilson, and Madison Bumgarner.) You wouldn’t have known it if you watched the left-handed side of the…

  8. C.J. Wilson blames erratic inning on slippery baseballs, accuses Rangers of tomfoolery

    Sep 28, 2013, 9:37 AM EDT

    Mike Butcher, C.J. Wilson

    Angels left-hander C.J. Wilson was exceptionally wild in the third inning last night against the Rangers at the Ballpark in Arlington, walking one batter while hitting two others and throwing three wild pitches. When asked after the game about what caused the erratic frame, Wilson indicated to the Orange County Register that he thought his…

  9. Alden Gonzalez explains why no Mike Trout extension is forthcoming

    Sep 27, 2013, 6:24 PM EDT

    Mike Trout

    Many have assumed that the Angels will try to work out a long-term deal with Mike Trout this winter before the price tag becomes even more overwhelming, but there’s a very good reason that won’t be happening. And it has a lot to do with that hideous Vernon Wells deal still taking a toll. The Angels…

  10. Indians, Rangers survive: wild card standings stay unchanged

    Sep 26, 2013, 11:58 PM EDT

    Jurickson Profar

    After the Rays made a sweep in Yankee Stadium look as easy as can be, the Indians and Rangers injected some drama into the AL wild card race before eking out one-run victories. The Indians seemed to have things well in hand against the Twins after scoring three runs in fourth and taking a 6-1…

  11. And That Happened: Monday’s scores and highlights

    Sep 17, 2013, 6:23 AM EDT

    Texas Rangers v Tampa Bay Rays

    Rays 6, Rangers 2: A homer and three RBI for Wil Myers as the Rays send the Rangers spiraling ever further into despair. Because the Indians lost too the Rangers didn’t fall out of the wild card slot, but they did fall out of the top spot, meaning that they’re now closer to falling out…

  12. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    Sep 12, 2013, 7:12 AM EDT

    Mike Napoli

    Red Sox 7, Rays 3: Mike Carp with a tenth inning grand slam. Good job extending your lead, Boston! Good job letting the Yankees pull to within one game of the wild card, Rays! Apropos of nothing, I’d give a lot to hear what Red Sox fans who love this beards thing had to say…

  13. C.J. Wilson is one big Angels signing that has gone well

    Aug 21, 2013, 11:51 AM EDT

    C.J, Wilson

    Handing out huge long-term contracts to Albert Pujols and Josh Hamilton has worked out horribly for the Angels and only figures to get worse, but one of their big free agent commitments is going just fine. When the Angels inked C.J. Wilson to a five-year, $77.5 million deal it was met with a lot of…

  14. And That Happened: Thursday’s scores and highlights

    Aug 16, 2013, 6:46 AM EDT

    Houston Astros v Oakland Athletics

    Athletics 5, Astros 0: Sonny Gray only has a couple of major league starts under his belt, but this one was a spiffy one: eight shutout innings, nine strikeouts. Of course a lot of guys have had spiffy starts against the Astros lately. Rule 5 pick Nate Freiman had himself a nice day too, going…

  15. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Jul 1, 2013, 6:51 AM EDT

    San Diego Padres v Miami Marlins

    Marlins 6, Padres 2: An improbable walkoff grand slam from Jeff Mathis caps an improbable winning month from the Miami Marlins. 15-10 in June for the worst team in baseball. Not bad. Oh, and Mathis’ homer was the 3,000th in team history. Pirates 2, Brewers 1: A 14th inning walkoff win for the hottest and…

  16. Two words for you: mini bar

    Jun 17, 2013, 5:42 PM EDT

    Mini Bar

    USA Today talked with Bronson Arroyo, David Freese, C.J. Wilson and David Wright about their travel preferences. Here’s the short version: The longer version: food is important. First thing they check when they check in to a hotel? Room service hours and if breakfast is still being served. And they all like that minibar: Arroyo, Freese and Wright unite over…

  17. Angels will skip Joe Blanton’s next turn in the rotation

    Jun 12, 2013, 10:47 AM EDT

    Joe Blanton

    Joe Blanton is 1-10 with a 5.87 ERA and the Angels just announced that the veteran right-hander’s next turn in the rotation will be skipped. That means he won’t start Sunday against the Yankees as scheduled, with the Angels lining up C.J. Wilson, Tommy Hanson, and Jered Weaver for the three-game series instead. It’s tough…

  18. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    Jun 3, 2013, 5:30 AM EDT

    Domonic Brown

    Phillies 7, Brewers 5: Dom Brown homered and tripled and drove in four while Cliff Lee struck out 11 in seven and two-thirds. Philly is only one game behind the Nats right now, you guys. Why? Because … Braves 6, Nationals 3: … the Nats dropped two of three to Atlanta, with B.J. Upton of…

  19. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    May 23, 2013, 6:57 AM EDT

    Star Trek into Darkness

    Phillies 3, Marlins 0: Cliff Lee shuts out the Marlins on three hits. Granted, it doesn’t take anyone as good as Lee to shut out the Marlins, but that’s nothing that Lee could help. He was dominant. Just like Benedict Cumberbatch in that scene when he killed all those [alien race redacted to avoid spoilers]…

  20. Settling the Score: Friday’s results

    May 18, 2013, 8:58 AM EDT

    Chris Sale Getty

    After tossing a one-hit shutout against the Angels in his last start on Sunday, Chris Sale got the best of them again last night. Sale struck out a season-high 12 over 7 2/3 scoreless innings as the White Sox topped the Angels 3-0 at Angel Stadium. The 24-year-old southpaw gave up just three hits and…

  21. For first time ever, Jason Bay is a leadoff man

    Apr 26, 2013, 6:29 PM EDT

    Jason Bay

    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. With Franklin Gutierrez sidelined, Endy Chavez had been leading off for the Mariners of late, but he’s only an option there against righties. Bay, who is hitting .220 overall, is 4-for-14 with…

  23. 2013 is crucial for Josh Johnson

    Mar 9, 2013, 10:56 PM EDT

    Toronto Blue Jays starting pitcher Josh Johnson works from the mound against the Atlanta Braves during the inning of their MLB Spring training baseball game in Lake Buena Vista, Florida

    The Blue Jays, in trading for R.A. Dickey, Jose Reyes, Mark Buehrle, and Josh Johnson, have narrowed their focus specifically on the 2013 season. With a roster that already includes two 40-homer threats in Jose Bautista and Edwin Encarnacion, the Jays will be a force to be reckoned with the AL East. Johnson, while he…

    Mar 4, 2013, 9:00 AM EDT

    C.J. Wilson

    Via out new MotorSportsTalk, news that Angels starter C.J. Wilson has wins in two sports now: Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim pitcher and two-time MLB All-Star C.J. Wilson can now call himself a winning team owner in Grand-Am road racing. C.J. Wilson Racing’s driving tandem of Stevan McAleer and Marc Miller took their No. 5…

  25. C.J. Wilson tests left elbow in spring debut

    Mar 2, 2013, 9:00 PM EDT

    C.J. Wilson

    Angels starter C.J. Wilson made his spring debut this afternoon, testing his surgically-repaired left elbow for the first time. He had bone spurs removed during the off-season and hopes to be ready when the regular season opens up in April. Wilson gave up two runs in one and two-thirds innings, but the important thing is…
