The Angels have a strong case to keep all their players, rentals included

In the middle of an inconsistent, injury-marred season the Angels still find themselves in the mix for a wild-card spot.

For the better part of 2017, this Angels squad has found themselves smack dab in the middle of the competition, currently sitting at a 49-51 record. With the trade deadline eight days away, that means the front office faces a conundrum: buy, sell, or both?

Here is the case for the team to not necessarily be buyers, but to not sell.

A mediocre second-tier in the AL

MondoLinks: Anaheim still owning Boston

After going 2 for 3 before the break, the Angels remind the Red Sox that, even with both hands tied behind their back, they can take 2 of 3 any time they want.

You know, if the Angels could play only the Red Sox, Yankees, Dodgers and Nationals, they would win almost 100 games this season. Over the last month they have played those teams 15 times, and won 9 of them. This weekend, they sent the BoSux bandwagon brigade home series losers with a 3-2 home run winning attack yesterday to back up...

Angels yet again prove to be too much for Red Sox, as take series behind stellar 3-2 win

Angels 3 Red Sox 2 The wheels of the Team of Destiny bus are starting to spin, and this rig seems to be getting back in motion. With a good day from the young upstart, Parker Bridwell, and a trio of Halos homers, the home team held off the invading Red Sox nation, and won a series against a 1st place team. That’s the right direction, alright. Seems like they’re getting something cooking again, doesn’t it? Bridwell went a full 7.0 innings pitched, and he gave up just five hits in his...

Andrelton Simmons & Angels rough up David Price, take down 1st place Red Sox 7-3

The Halos got seven hits off of the venerable lefty, Price, and closed out their Saturday night with a big win.

Angels 7 Red Sox 3

Last night, the Angels never really stood a chance; this was mainly because of the vastly different levels of competitiveness from respective Angels & Red Sox starters Ricky Nolasco and Chris Sale. It doesn’t necessarily mean that this 1st place Boston team is all that much better than this Halos team, does it? I mean, our guys DID beat up on them pretty good...
