  1. Angels add Richards to big O for 'best' bid

    Christina Kahrl

    One ballgame does not a four-game, home-and-home, crosstown series make -- not when the Angels are in what figures to be a two-month race yet to run against the other AL West candidate for best team in baseball, the Oakland A's. But on Monday, the An...

  2. Angels' rotation may be their weak link

    Christina Kahrl

    The Angels are the second-best team in baseball. Win or lose going into Monday night's game against the AL East-leading Orioles, they were going to be the second-best team in baseball after the fact. They lost, missing the chance to move within a gam...

  3. Angels' bullpen woes may be over

    Christina Kahrl

    After all of the hue and cry over the Angels' bullpen woes, you'd have to think that the decision to trade for closer Huston Street after already getting Jason Grilli from the Pirates would answer their needs. Angels manager Mike Scioscia was second ...

  4. Angels' AL-best O not firing on all cylinders

    Christina Kahrl

    Albert Pujols' hot start has been tremendously good news for the Angels. Of course, it's always a good thing to have the big guy bash nine homers in the season's first month. And after an injury-marred 2013 season, it certainly helps that it appears ...

  5. Albert Pujols pounds his 496th home run

    Christina Kahrl

    After pounding his 496th home run, you could feel a little bit of joy for Albert Pujols. Big money or no, the Los Angeles Angels slugger had taken quite a tumble from his days as the game's best ballplayer. He's apparently healed up completely from l...

  6. Who can't top what they did in 2013?

    Christina Kahrl

    You might think sabermetrics is merely the pursuit of joyless predictability, but a big part of my enjoyment of sabermetrics doesn't come from the results that match our expectations but rather is derived from the guys who totally upset them, guys wh...

  7. Does AL MVP race have an easy answer?

    Christina Kahrl

    Another day provided another chance to see what the likely leaders in the American League Most Valuable Player race were up to. Miguel Cabrera homered. Chris Davis homered. And Mike Trout, the guy you'd prefer to pick if you were starting your team t...

  8. Mike Trout proving himself all over again

    Christina Kahrl

    In 2012, Mike Trout cranked out one of the greatest rookie seasons of all time. As a 20-year-old, Trout led the league in runs scored and stolen bases while hitting .326 with 30 homers and 83 RBIs. People noticed; it was in all the papers. He won AL...

  9. WARfare, 2013 style

    Christina Kahrl

    With the season roughly halfway over, I thought it would be a good idea to dig into the numbers to see what WAR (wins above replacement) is telling us. I'll start with a man who has been at the center of a lot of WAR talk in the last year. 1. Migu...

  10. Even short-handed, Angels flying high

    Christina Kahrl

    The Angels had a plan, and the expectation was that if they executed it, this time around they'd get back to the postseason. They've followed a course many might advise, and when they fell hard early, many were ready to write them off. But no...

  11. First things first for Pujols

    Christina Kahrl

    MARYVALE, Ariz. -- For the second consecutive winter the Los Angeles Angels made a splash during the offseason, signing the best hitter available as a free agent. Adding Josh Hamilton may have commanded this past winter's headlines, but on Tuesday th...

  12. Vargas works deep, gets taken deeper

    Christina Kahrl

    MARYVALE, AZ -- Bringing Jason Vargas over from the Seattle Mariners made sense in that the Los Angeles Angels needed to restock a rotation that had lost Dan Haren, Ervin Santana and Zack Greinke as free agents, and trading for Vargas (as well as Atl...

  13. Hanson cashed in by cash-minded Braves

    Christina Kahrl

    The immediate reaction on Tommy Hanson for Jordan Walden? A gut reaction might be "starter for reliever, guy who gets the starter wins." That would be easy, but would also lose sight of what's really in play here, especially in the shadow of tonight'...

  14. Does picking top skippers make sense?

    Christina Kahrl

    It was the managers' turn Tuesday in Major League Baseball's awards week, and you can understand why this might be greeted by a collective yawn by the performance-analysis community. The throwaway comment is that it's the award for whichever guy in t...

  15. Angels will need more than Pujols

    Christina Kahrl

    Now this is what Arte Moreno signed up for. With Saturday night's home run against the White Sox, that's six home runs in five games in five days off the bat of Albert Pujols. And all of them hit against the Rangers and White Sox, both potential play...

  16. Center-field superstars: Generation Next

    You might have been one of those children who grew up with parents who, every Saturday, turned your radio's dial to "A Prairie Home Companion," where among other features you could reliably look forward to the segment in which Garrison Keillor welcom...
