  2. Active players who will be Hall of Famers

    David Schoenfield

    Albert Pujols was placed on the disabled list on Sunday, sort of the exclamation point to the Los Angeles Angels' debacle of a season. Sunday was Hall of Fame induction day -- you may have missed it, considering the lone player elected played his fin...

  3. Angels show lack of respect for Hamilton

    David Schoenfield

    The big news Monday was the Los Angeles Angels moving Josh Hamilton down from fourth to fifth in the batting order in an apparent attempt to fix their slumping $125 million slugger. The timing was odd, with the Angels coming off a weekend sweep of...

  4. Josh Hamilton continues to struggle

    David Schoenfield

    The first rule of April: It's too early to panic. The second rule April: It's never too early to panic. So the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim returned to the sun and the strip malls and the land where orange groves once filled the horizo...

  5. Angels miss golden opportunity

    David Schoenfield

    Knowing the Oakland A's were down big to the Texas Rangers (and would eventually lose), all the Los Angeles Angels had to do was beat the last-place Seattle Mariners, a team they had defeated 10 times in 15 games this season. This is why only craz...

  6. Who should win the AL wild cards?

    David Schoenfield

    I sent an email to my pal Jim Caple, asking: Would you rather see the A's or Angels in the playoffs? I could also ask: Would you rather see the Orioles or the Rays? All four teams won on Wednesday, which means good news for the Orioles and A's ...

  7. Angels more disappointing than Red Sox

    David Schoenfield

    I just returned from vacation and spent a portion of the weekend catching up on the HBO series "The Newsroom." The show has been a little uneven -- what's with all the personal discussions and arguments taking place right in the middle of the newsroo...

  8. Albert Pujols back, but no longer the best

    David Schoenfield

    Albert Pujols hit rock bottom on May 4. He went 0-for-4 with a strikeout as Henderson Alvarez of the Toronto Blue Jays pitched a six-hit shutout against the Los Angeles Angels. Pujols' average had dropped to .194 and he had no home runs and just four...

  9. Time to start paying attention to Mike Trout

    David Schoenfield

    Forget Albert Pujols. There's another reason to watch the Los Angeles Angels, and his name is Mike Trout. For all the hype Bryce Harper has rightfully received, it's time to start giving a few headlines to another rookie phenom, time to give the L...

  10. Angels still a team with potential flaws

    David Schoenfield

    For all the consternation and criticism dished out over the Boston Red Sox's 1-5 start, another expected American League power is off to a sluggish opening week as well: The Los Angeles Angels are 2-4 after coughing up 20 hits and an eighth-inning le...

  12. Over/under: Wins for Angels

    David Schoenfield

    The Los Angeles Angels won 86 games in 2011, finishing with a run differential of plus-34 runs, a total that would suggest 85 victories. So their actual win totaled correlated closely with their "expected" win total. They've added Albert Pujols an...

  13. Yu Darvish: Why he'll end up with Texas

    David Schoenfield

    It's not in Nolan Ryan's nature to give in. Throw a 3-2 fastball down the middle of the plate? No way. Let up on his fastball -- just a little -- to throw a few more strikes? Are you kidding? He was not going to give in to a hitter. Ever. It's why...

  14. Pujols compared to best at ages 32 to 41

    David Schoenfield

    Let's be honest: I don't think Arte Moreno cares too much about 2017 or 2018, let alone 2021, when Albert Pujols will be 41 years old and finishing up the final season of his 10-year, $254 million contract with the Los Angeles Angels. Last week, E...

    David Schoenfield

  16. Cardinals will survive loss of Pujols

    David Schoenfield

    St. Louis Cardinals fans must feel like that dude in the second "Indiana Jones" movie who gets his heart ripped out of his chest. It's a feeling you can't describe. You spend 11 years rooting for a player, cheering home runs, spending your paychec...
