    Jul 31, 2013, 5:50 PM EST

    Jake Peavy

    Given how disappointing this afternoon’s trade deadline proved to be, it’s only fair that the annual winners and losers column is a little lopsided. Let’s get right to it: Winners Red Sox: I didn’t like the idea of Boston giving up top prospects for Jake Peavy because I just didn’t see him being a big…

    CBS Sports’ Danny Knobler shares this scoop: After talking to the White Sox about Alexei Ramirez and checking in with the Phillies on Jimmy Rollins, the Cardinals have now been in touch with the Angels about Erick Aybar, according to sources.

    Jul 5, 2013, 10:47 AM EST

    Milwaukee Brewers v St. Louis Cardinals

    Edward Mujica has been brilliant since stepping into the Cardinals’ closer role, converting 21 consecutive saves with a 2.20 ERA and 25/1 K/BB ratio in 28.2 innings heading into last night. And then last night against the Angels he blew his first save of the season by serving up a game-tying two-run homer to Josh…

    Adam Dunn

    White Sox 3, Orioles 2: A walkoff homer for Adam Dunn won it, but seven shutout innings — with 11 strikeouts — from Jose Quintana helped make it possible.

    Detroit Tigers v Kansas City Royals

    Royals 3, Tigers 2: Jose Valverde was handed a 2-0 lead in the ninth with a runner on and promptly coughed it up by surrendering a homer to Lorenzo Cain. Phil Coke added his own brand of kerosene to the fire on the 10th as Eric Hosmer singled in the winning run. After the game…

    Apr 30, 2013, 11:19 AM EST

    Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim v Cincinnati Reds

    Peter Bourjos is the first casualty from last night’s Angels-A’s marathon that saw multiple players leave with injuries, as the Angels center fielder has been placed on the disabled list with a hamstring injury. Bourjos nearly beat out a sacrifice bunt in the 11th inning, but came up lame right as his feet hit first…

    Alberto Callapso Getty

    Prior to last night’s game, the Angels placed third baseman Alberto Callapso on the 15-day disabled list with right calf tightness.

    R.A. Dickey

    Craig Kimbrel allowed a total of one double in 62 2/3 innings for the Braves last year. Maybe even more impressive, he allowed just one hit with a man in scoring position. He never allowed multiple hits in an inning. On Thursday, he gave up one double and two hits with men in scoring position…

  23. Can someone please fire Bobby Valentine now?

    Aug 29, 2012, 1:29 AM EST

    Bobby Valentine

    It sure appeared as though Bobby Valentine was more interested in proving a point than winning a ballgame on Tuesday night. With a 5-4 lead after seven innings, Valentine sent Alfredo Aceves out to earn a two-inning save against the Angels. Aceves got through the eighth unscathed, but he lost the game on an RBI single…

    Zack Greinke, Sam Holbrook

    Already playing plenty well without him, the Angels will now be called World Series favorites after acquiring Zack Greinke from the Brewers on Friday night. In truth, though, they may not be any better than they were yesterday. In Greinke, the Angels are getting a pitcher with No. 1 starter stuff. He was the AL’s…
