  6. A few tweaks to the roster

    Mark Saxon

  8. Outfield of the future is now

    Mark Saxon

    We all knew there was a good chance the Angels would one day have an outfield of Mike Trout, Peter Bourjos and Mark Trumbo. We just didn't expect that day to be May 21, 2012. This team's outfield has gone from having a glut of available players to...

    Mark Saxon

    When a team with a $151 million payroll and World Series aspirations starts the season eight games under .500 after 20 games, it's only a matter of time before something like this happens. Yeah, you can preach patience for a while, trust in your play...

  13. Mark Trumbo sits again... this time due to illness

    Mark Saxon

    A #FreeMarkTrumbo movement has been started on Twitter by some Angels fans baffled by the lack of playing time for the young slugger. Wednesday shouldn't provide much fodder for the movement, because Trumbo was benched not because of his shaky def...
