They headed into Anaheim on Thursday for the start of a four-game series with the goal of recapturing the lead in the American League West standings, but runs have been difficult to come by and now the Angels enter play Sunday looking for the sweep.

    Aug 19, 2014, 11:19 AM EDT

    Jeff Samardzija

    When the Cubs acquired top prospect shortstop Addison Russell from the Athletics in the Jeff Samardzija/Jason Hammel deal, many assumed that it likely signified the beginning of the end for Starlin Castro in Chicago. But Castro hopes to stick around.

    Jul 21, 2014, 1:20 PM EDT

    Nick Franklin Getty

    There’s no room for Nick Franklin in Seattle because the Mariners don’t trust his defense at shortstop and Robinson Cano kind of has second base locked down for a while, but he’d make plenty of sense for a lot of other teams.

    ian kennedy getty

    Bill Shaikin of the LA Times wrote Wednesday morning that the Angels “long have known they do not have the elite prospects necessary to acquire” ace left-hander David Price from the Rays. And that weak farm system could also mean that another known Angels target will slip through the cracks.
