38 days to Opening Day...

A major bucket of coal was thrown upon the stove over the weekend. Big signings, major player moves. Mountains of words written and opinions rendered all in the passage of a few hours. The baseball writers were, finally, enthralled.

Good for them. But we have more important things to attend.

Mike Trout reported yesterday. And he led into camp a host off fine talent assembling for the first time. The first full-squad workouts are today. And we have a squad that can...

Ohtani, Angels enjoy light workout day Sunday

On the eve of the team's first full-squad workout and with phenom Shohei Ohtani going through a light workload, Sunday was relatively quiet around Angels camp at Tempe Diablo Stadium. And it was all by design.

Cozart green but embracing challenge at 3rd

The first time Zack Cozart played third base was Monday. He took grounders at the hot corner again on Sunday morning. Those two sessions encapsulate his career at the position. But it's where he is slated to play this season after signing a three-year, $38 million deal with the Angels.

Angels Sign Chris Young and Chris Carter

Angels made some depth signings to replace the recently departed CJ Cron

Well that didn’t take long. Last night, the Angels traded from their glut of first baseman by sending CJ Cron to Tampa Bay, potentially posing the question of what would happen next. Turns out, we only needed one day to find out.

Angels trade C.J. Cron for cash or a player to be named later

The Cron days have come to an end in Anaheim

C.J. Cron didn’t get a lot of playing time in 2017 and with Pujols moving to first base more (thanks to the Ohtani signing), and Zach Cozart coming in to play third, maybe wondered what would become of Cron with Luis Valbuena also on the roster. One of the questions many of us asked around here was - what value does Cron have? Now we know...

J-Up happy he re-upped with close-knit Angels

When Justin Upton hit free agency two years ago, he languished on the market until mid-January before signing a six-year, $132.75 million deal with the Tigers. He could have tested the open market again this winter by exercising the opt-out clause in his contract, but he decided against it, preferring to sign a five-year, $106 million extension with the Angels, who acquired him from Detroit in an Aug. 31 trade last year.

The Japanese media have started to discover my choice locations to shoot pictures. The gift shop is open and the...
