  6. A few tweaks to the roster

    Mark Saxon

  7. What to do with Vernon Wells?

    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...

  11. Vernon Wells, last year's Albert Pujols?

    Mark Saxon

    Big-money contract, new team, new fans, a brutally slow start to the season. Then comes the mounting pressure of all of that. If it sounds familiar to Angels fans, it sounds painful to Vernon Wells. Like Albert Pujols this season, Wells was that g...
