August 19th Game #127 Preview: Angels @ Rangers

Four games in three days.

Angels (62-64) @ Rangers (60-64)

This will be a battle for 3rd place. The Angels and the Rangers are just separated by one game, with just over a month to go. To add insult to injury, the Rangers just inducted Josh Hamilton into their team Hall of Fame, so...let’s win, okay?

MondoLinks: Halos Dinger A Series Win.

Robert Hanashiro-USA TODAY Sports

A Home Run Derby broke out Sunday, sending the Halos off to Texas with a series win over the White Sox.

Just by serendipity, the very day that the Chicago White Sox pitchers were handing out free home runs to one and all, Skipper Brad gave Mike Trout the day off. Too bad for MLB, because we have ourselves a real live Home Run Champion of MLB chase going on, and Mike is smack in the middle of it.

The National League has Cody Bellinger (42) , Christian...

SBNation FanPulse: Two-thirds of fans think MLB intentionally juiced the balls

The home run revolution is a hot topic across the majors.

Welcome to SB Nation FanPulse, a survey of fans across MLB. Each week, we send 30 polls to plugged in fans from each team. Angels fans, sign up HERE to join FanPulse.

It’s no surprise that the balls are juiced. There have been studies done on the subject, and homers are up in the majors and in AAA, while they are not up at other levels. The only...

Canning, Angels bats resist orders to Cease and desist, winning series against White Sox

Robert Hanashiro-USA TODAY Sports

It’s 3 of 4 against the AL team from Chicago.

Angels 9, White Sox 2

Mike Trout didn’t play.

It made for the second straight day he didn’t see the field (having DH’d in Saturday’s affair), but it didn’t matter. Yes, we’re all curious to see who wins the Great Home Run Race of 2019, but Trout’s campaign can resume Monday. It’s fine. He will still win.

The Angels were also winners Sunday afternoon, Griffin Canning efficient through seven...

This stat shows us how ridiculous Mike Trout’s career has been

Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout could ultimately go down as one of the top-five players in the history of Major League Baseball. What Trout has done while flying under the radar for a mediocre Angels team over the past nine seasons is already legendary. Still only 28 years old, Trout has earned two AL MVP awards and finished in the top two in voting six different times. Did we mention he’s in the midst of just his eighth full season? This one stat details just how dominant the...

Going for the series win

White Sox (55-67) @ Angels (61-64)

Time to wrap up this series and hopefully with a win. Thanks to their comeback last night, the Angles are poised to take the series against the White Sox before heading out on the road to Texas. David Fletcher, who went through a bit of a dry spell in early August, is now hitting .433 over his last 7 games.

Game 3 Notables (and un-notables):

David Fletcher: 2 for 4
Goodwin/Trout: 2 RBI each

Angels overtake White Sox in 6-5 comeback victory

It’s no secret that Justin Upton has not been particularly clutch in his tenure with the Angels. Going into today, Upton had arguably been the second worst player on the team with 150 Plate Appearances behind Jonathan Lucroy, who himself had been one of the most hurtful individual players in all of baseball. According to Fangraphs, Upton’s -0.58 Win Probability Added was tied...

Saturday Night and feeling alright?

White Sox (55-66) @ Angels (60-64)

I suppose hoping for a sweep in this series was too much to ask? Nearly every game we are reminding of the Angels pitching woes. If there is anything left to watch, it’s perhaps the home run battle between Cody Bellinger and Mike Trout. Trout would seem to have the AL HR title in the bag if things keep going the way they have been, but the overall MLB title should be fun to watch as...

Bill Walton was clearly the best thing about this game. If you tuned in to the White Sox broadcast tonight, you were in for a treat. If you didn’t, let’s run through this game via Bill:

Watch: Bill Walton calls Mike Trout home run in perfect fashion

Bill Walton partnered with Jason Benetti to call Friday night’s Chicago White Sox-Los Angeles Angels game on White Sox TV, and he did not disappoint. Walton called a Mike Trout home run in the fifth inning of the game, saying the All-Star had sent the ball “ricocheting through the universe.” That was classic Walton. What was he doing calling a baseball game? Chicago's typical TV analyst is Steve Stone, but he is taking a few days off while the White Sox are in Anaheim. The White Sox...

Sweep in progress

White Sox (54-66) @ Angels (60-63)

Game 2 of this 4 game set and the Angels have a sweep in progress. In fact, if the Angels DID sweep, they would be back at .500 on the season - just to tease us a little bit. This will be the first meetup of these two teams in 2019. Last year, the Angels won the season series 5 games to 2.

WeekEnd HaloLinks: Mike Trout is the Four Gone Conclusion

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports

Trout drives the offense as Andrew Heaney goes 7 strong innings in an 8-7 win.

The offense rolled. The starting pitching was solid, with Andrew Heaney going 7 full innings and giving up only FOUR hits. The defense (almost) played a clean game.

And then there was Mike Trout. Mike was the star with FOUR At Bats, where he collected FOUR hits, from which he scored FOUR times. In there was his FOURtieth home run. Oh, and a late pitch-around-the-GOAT Base on...
