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

    Sep 19, 2013, 7:12 AM EDT

    Chris Davis

    Orioles 5, Red Sox 3: Chris Davis with a two-run single in the 12th to win the game. Wei-Yin Chen gave up 11 hits but someone only three runs in five and two-thirds. Baltimore remains one back in the wild card. The Sox’ magic number for the division remains at three. Braves 5, Nationals 2: They’re…

  2. Jon Morosi: finding new ways to support Miguel Cabrera for MVP depending on the circumstances

    Sep 16, 2013, 2:07 PM EDT

    Miguel Cabrera

    You don’t have to have some set of hard and fast rules about how you feel about awards if you don’t want to. Feel free to go with your gut each year. Feel free to just vote for your favorite player all you want. Or not. I don’t care. And if you think Miguel Cabrera…

  3. 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…

  4. Padres release Edinson Volquez

    Aug 27, 2013, 4:46 PM EDT

    Predictably zero teams wanted anything to do with the remainder of Edinson Volquez‘s contract after the Padres designated him for assignment, so the right-hander passed through waivers unclaimed and has been released. That means Volquez is free to sign with any team for whatever he can get, although with free agency right around the corner…

  5. Anaheim isn’t big enough for Mike Scioscia and Jerry Dipoto

    Aug 23, 2013, 5:01 PM EDT

    scioscia and dipoto angels

    There’s been plenty of speculation about the fates of Angels manager Mike Scioscia and general manager Jerry Dipoto, but Jon Morosi of FOXSports.com offers a bit of substance in reporting that one of them will be a goner after the season. According to Morosi “philosophical differences exist between the men and it has become increasingly…

  6. 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…

  7. Mike Trout out of lineup again with hamstring strain

    Aug 20, 2013, 7:15 PM EDT

    From beat writer Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com comes word that Angels outfielder Mike Trout is out of the starting lineup for a second straight game on Tuesday night due to a right hamstring strain.

  8. Josh Reddick has hit three home runs through six innings

    Aug 9, 2013, 9:22 PM EDT

    Athletics' Reddick swings at a pitch against the Blue Jays during the third inning of their MLB American League game at O.co Coliseum in Oakland

    Athletics outfielder Josh Reddick hitless in 22 plate appearances dating back to July 29. Blue Jays pitching must have been just what the doctor ordered because Reddick has exploded in a big way tonight. In the top of the third, Reddick smoked a solo home run to left off of Jays starter Esmil Rogers. He…

  9. Josh Hamilton gives up his copyright claim to “Play hard, pray harder”

    Jul 30, 2013, 10:31 AM EDT

    Josh Hamilton

    Josh Hamilton has printed up t-shirts with the slogan “Play hard, pray harder” on them for a while now. But some other guys say they did it first and they sued Hamilton over it. The other guys have prevailed. From LewPBlog.com: Tyler Mileger began using the slogan “Play Hard Pray Harder” several  years  ago playing college…

  10. Bay Bridge shutdown forces detour for Angels

    Jul 26, 2013, 6:42 PM EDT

    America's Cup Training

    The Bay Bridge was closed down this afternoon after someone reported a suspicious device on an offramp. That wouldn’t seem to be much of a baseball issue, except the Angels were staying in a San Francisco hotel despite playing in Oakland tonight. Bay Bridge is shut down, so those who didn’t take the early bus…

  11. Josh Hamilton back in lineup after missing three games with ankle stiffness

    Jul 25, 2013, 7:01 PM EDT

    According to Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com, Josh Hamilton is back in the starting lineup for tonight’s game against the Athletics after missing the past three games with right ankle stiffness. Hamilton told the Los Angeles Times earlier this week that he began feeling symptoms when he woke up on Monday. He was diagnosed with inflammation…

  12. Josh Hamilton gets a cortisone shot

    Jul 24, 2013, 9:13 AM EDT

    josh hamilton getty

    Josh Hamilton has missed back-to-back games with a bum ankle and it now looks like he’s going to miss more, as he required a cortisone shot. The weirdest part is that the ankle — which he has described as being sore – was apparently hurt doing nothing. Hamilton explained it to the L.A. Times: He…

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

    Jul 11, 2013, 7:01 AM EDT

    Josh Hamilton

    Angels 13, Cubs 2: It’s almost as if Josh Hamilton hadn’t totally forgotten how to play baseball or something. Go figure. Two homers and five RBI in this romp. One of his homers was back-to-back with a Pujols home run. First time that’s happened this year. Nationals 5, Phillies 1: The Nats hit four homers…

  14. Edward Mujica on first blown save: “I didn’t follow Yadi and that’s a mistake”

    Jul 5, 2013, 10:47 AM EDT

    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…

  15. Josh Hamilton is back on chewing tobacco

    Jul 3, 2013, 8:25 AM EDT

    josh hamilton getty

    Last year Josh Hamilton famously struggled with quitting chewing tobacco, which led to cryptic comments about “personal issues” and coincided with struggles at the plate. Nolan Ryan criticized Hamilton for trying to quit during the season. Hamilton himself characterized it as a struggle to maintain “obedience to the Lord,” which presumably means Hamilton views chewing…

  17. 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…

    Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports that outfielder Peter Bourjos has been diagnosed with a non-displaced fracture in his right wrist and is going to be sidelined for the next 2-3 weeks. Bourjos suffered the injury Saturday when he was hit on the wrist by a Jordan Lyles fastball. He’ll be placed on the disabled…

  19. Play of the Day: Josh Hamilton robs Matt Dominguez of a home run

    Jun 29, 2013, 11:15 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim v Houston Astros

    Say what you will about Josh Hamilton‘s production this year, and it will all be warranted. In the first year of a five-year, $125 million contract signed during the off-season, Hamilton has posted an uncharacteristic .659 OPS and has rated as one of baseball’s least-valuable players through the first three months of the season. In…

    New York Yankees' Suzuki runs and watches the ball after he hit a walk-off home run to beat the Texas Rangers in their MLB American League game in New York

    Yankees 4, Rangers 3: Walkoff homer for Ichiro? Well shut my mouth. Wait, what? Well jeez, Brian, it’s just an expression. You don’t have to agree so emphatically and profanely. Angels 14, Tigers 8: Well that fifth inning got out of a hand in a hurry. Rick Porcello was beaten around for seven runs on…

  21. Angels owner Arte Moreno isn’t firing anyone, has faith in Josh Hamilton

    Jun 24, 2013, 9:13 AM EDT

    Arte Moreno

    Bob Nightengale of USA Today sat down for a candid interview with Arte Moreno. Who, aside from not liking the fact that he gets an earful from fans when he tries to go to his favorite bar, is taking a more zen approach to the Angels’ struggles than you might expect. He still defends picking…

  22. Josh Hamilton gets cortisone shot, sits with wrist injury

    Jun 22, 2013, 12:12 PM EDT

    Josh Hamilton

    As if things weren’t going bad enough for Josh Hamilton now the Angels outfielder is out until at least Tuesday with a wrist injury. According to Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com his right wrist “flared up during an intense pregame hitting drill about 10 days ago” and after initially playing through the pain Hamilton got a…

  23. Josh Hamilton is hitting seventh tonight for the Angels

    Jun 19, 2013, 8:15 PM EDT

    josh hamilton getty

    Josh Hamilton struck out twice and grounded into three double plays in the Angels’ 3-2 loss to the Mariners on Tuesday and is now sporting a putrid .213/.269/.388 batting line through 69 games this season. So some changes are being made. Hamilton will bat seventh Wednesday as the Halos take on the M’s for the third…

  24. Josh Hamilton had a nightmare game last night

    Jun 19, 2013, 8:48 AM EDT

    Josh Hamilton

    It’s hard to grasp how truly awful Josh Hamilton was on Tuesday night. He came to the plate five times. Here’s what happened: First Inning: No score, Mike Trout on first, nobody out, Hamilton grounds into a double play; Third Inning: Mariners up 2-1, Mike Trout on first, nobody out, Hamilton grounds into a double…

    New York Mets v Atlanta Braves - Game Two

    Mets 4, Braves 3; Mets 6, Braves 1: New York Mets fans are hoping this is a glimpse of the future. Matt Harvey dominating in one game, Zack Wheeler dominating in the next. And, worth noting, Dillion Gee dominating in the game before those even if they did lose in the end. There’s so much…
