Angels rotation
Ryan Shaw - Feb 9, 2023

Pitching has always been an Achilles’ heel for the Los Angeles Angels. The lack of pitching talent was so evident that the team drafted all pitchers in the 2021 Amateur draft. Although the fruits of this draft class won’t be seen for a few more years, the organization’s emphasis on pitching has fostered a group […]

Home Run Leaders

The home run leaders since 2017 are surprising at best. Each player’s home run is enough for people to witness one of the most thrilling moments in a baseball game. The all-time home run record in a season is 73, held by Barry Bonds in 2001. But before Bonds, there was a home run chase […]

Doug Decinces
Caleb Begley - Aug 26, 2022

Doug DeCinces is not a name that’s on the tip of every baseball fan’s tongue. Indeed, even this writer had barely heard of him until doing research for this piece. However, during the late 1970s and throughout the 1980s, DeCinces was relatively well known. During his career, he only made one All-Star appearance. At the same […]

Can the Angels
Nathan Melton II - Jul 23, 2022

The only word that can describe the first half of the season for the Los Angeles Angels is disastrous. The Halos duped us all — they took us out on a couple of great first dates, and then proceeded to break our hearts. Now sitting at 39–54 and 22.5 games back, will the Halos be […]

Nathan Melton II - Jun 3, 2022

The Los Angeles Angels have lost 8 straight after a 27-17 start to the season. Each consecutive loss continues to paint the picture of an Angel squad that has absolutely no idea what they are doing. After 8 straight losses, the Halos are 6.5 games behind the first-place Houston Astros — who are sitting at […]

Nathan Melton II - Apr 24, 2022

Nearly Perfect Shohei Ohtani has been off to a shaky start in the month of April for the Los Angeles Angels. He is 0–2 on the mound and 11-for-51 at the plate. But on Wednesday, Ohtani showcased a side of him that we haven’t seen before. Ohtani threw six mind-blowing innings in his start that […]

Caleb Begley - Mar 27, 2022

The aroma is indistinguishable. One can sniff it out, even before one arrives. The unmistakable smell of fresh cut grass, a precisely placed infield, and the absolutism of a new season. Spring Training carries its own unique placement in the baseball psyche. True, it’s not the regular season and it’s definitely not the playoffs. However, […]

The Colorado Rockies Spring Training is already being tested with their debit. For a team who is looking to get out of the basement, a trio of Rockies are making quite the noise while fighting for consistent play during the regular season.

The New York Yankees injury bug is in full force. Unfortunately, they will begin the 2023 season shorthanded as some players will not be ready in time.

Caleb Begley - Mar 27, 2022

Michigan is often considered to be the auto capital of America. This is no small wonder, either. According to the state’s Center for Automotive Research, Michigan receives parts to build between 10 and 12 million vehicles a year.
