  1. Mike Trout scratched with bruised knee

    Mark Saxon

    It doesn't sound like a long-term concern, but with a player this talented, any injury is a concern. The Angels scratched Mike Trout from the lineup shortly before Sunday afternoon's game with the Tampa Bay Rays with a left knee contusion. Trout h...

  2. The Bobby Abreu situation continues

    Mark Saxon

    If you look at Mike Scioscia's track record, you'll notice that players who grumble about their roles don't stick around long. The revolving door only goes one way in that regard. And it makes you wonder how much longer this situation with Bobb...

  3. Will the offense mirror Albert Pujols?

    Mark Saxon

    Early one morning, Mike Trout found himself in the indoor batting cage alone with Albert Pujols. Not an easy moment to break the ice for a 20-year old in his second big league camp. Before long, though, they were talking hitting. Pujols was advisi...

  7. And on the 33rd day... Hideki rests

    Mark Saxon

    If you're wondering why Mike Scioscia doesn't give Hideki Matsui a day off, you may not have to wonder long. After Friday's 8-0 win over the Seattle Mariners, Scioscia met in his office with Matsui (stuck in a 4-for-43 slump) and his interpreter, ...

  8. Your 2010 Angels lineup

    Mark Saxon

    Actually nothing is definitive on that front yet. It's only February, after all. The only clue Mike Scioscia has given this spring is that Bobby Abreu likely will be the No. 2 hitter. I've been covering Scioscia long enough to read between the lin...
