Can The Angels Turn Things Around In 2014

Angels Stadium

Angeles Stadium

After an up and down regular season that started with high expectations the Los Angeles Angels head into the 2014 with a surprising amount of optimism. A solid late season run combined with a solid finish by Josh Hamilton, not to mention the incredible play of Mike Trout, gave the team some momentum as the season ended. The Angels made some interesting moves in the offseason that could very well inject some new life into the roster. The health of Albert Pujols is another factor that could help propel the Angels to a turnaround. The Angels 2014 Home Opener is March 31st against the Mariners and tickets for the Angels Opening Day are on sale now.

Here’s a look at five big questions facing the Angels as they head into the 2014 season:
Will the St. Louis Albert Pujols make an appearance? The Angels paid massive money for Pujols before the 2012 season and haven’t got the return they expected. In 2012 Pujols started slow but rebounded to have a good season, but one lacking next to his lofty career standards. Last season Pujols suffered from plantar fasciitis all season and batted just .258 in 99 games with reduced power. The Angels still owe Pujols $189 million over the next seven seasons and need production from their slugger. If the future Hall of Famer can come close to his St. Louis Cardinals form the Angels may have the most formidable lineup in baseball.

Josh Hamilton

Hamilton

Same with Josh Hamilton: The uncertainty that surrounds Pujols is magnified with Josh Hamilton. The former Rangers and Reds slugger is a prime example of the potential risks inherent in massive multi-year guaranteed free agent contracts. Hamilton hit just .250 last season with 21 home runs, numbers that pale in comparison to his peak years in Texas. Perhaps even more concerning is his penchant for strikeouts. After striking out fewer than 100 times for three consecutive seasons Hamilton has averaged 160 strikeouts per season for the past two years. The Angels still owe Hamilton over $100 million over the next four seasons, so like Pujols, they need production from their other big money player. A lack of offense from Hamilton and/or Pujols limits the team’s ability to make additional moves to bolster the roster.

Did they upgrade their pitching? The Angels starting rotation and bullpen struggled last season. The starters had a penchant for not getting deep enough into games, while the bullpen struggled due to potential overuse. Los Angeles made a couple of moves to improve their rotation, acquiring Tyler Skaggs and Hector Santiago that has the potential to improve the depth and quality of their starters. Both starters were acquired in the three-team trade that saw the Angels send Mark Trumbo to the White Sox. Skaggs, who the Angels originally drafted in 2009 before trading him for Dan Haren, is one of the better young lefthanders in the game. The twenty-five year-old Santiago put up solid secondary numbers with the White Sox last season. He’s a potential number two starter who averaged nearly a strikeout per inning last season. Skaggs and Santiago, combined with a healthy Jered Weaver and CJ Wilson give the Angels a deeper pool of starting pitching talent.

Is David Freese an upgrade over Alberto Callaspo? The Angels rolled the dice, sending talented outfielder Peter Bourjas to the Cardinals, along with Randal Grichuk, for Freese and Fernando Salas. The former World Series hero hit just .262 with nine home runs last season, a steep drop-off from the previous season. His defensive numbers also suffered from a year before. Like Hamilton a productive Freese could help propel the Angels lineup to new heights. The big question is what version of David Freese the Angels are receiving.

American League West

AL West

A tough division may have gotten tougher: The AL West is suddenly one of the top divisions in all of baseball. The Oakland Athletics, two time defending division champions, should be as competitive as ever while the Texas Rangers look to rebound from a disappointing end to last season. The Rangers upgraded their lineup with the acquisition of Prince Fielder from the Detroit Tigers and Sin Shoo Choo from the Cincinnati Reds. Meanwhile the Seattle Mariners made a big splash in signing Robinson Cano from the New York Yankees and Corey Hart from the Milwaukee Brewers. Both the Mariners and Rangers could very well get in on the Masahiro Tanaka sweepstakes as well. There’s no question that the AL West will be even more improved next season, putting additional pressure on Pujols, Hamilton and the Angels to perform up to expectations.

Look for the Angels to potentially make a couple of additional moves before they report to spring training in late February. Even with the presence of Skaggs and Santiago the club may look to bolster their young rotation with one or two of the quality starters still available, like a Matt Garza or Bronson Arroyo.

This Day in MLB History!


August 27th

 
1897 Future Hall of Fame catcher Senator Roger Bresnahan makes his major league debut as a pitcher shutting out the Browns, 3-0.
1911 At Comiskey Park, Chicago hurler Ed Walsh, Sr. no-hits the Red Sox, 5-0. The future Hall of Famer’s son, Edward Arthur, will also pitch for the White Sox from 1928-1932.
1937 Dodger right-hander Fred Frankhouse tosses a rained shortened (8 2/3 innings) no-hitter beating the Reds, 5-0.
1938 In the first game of a twin bill at Yankee Stadium, Joe DiMaggio hits three consecutive triples. His offensive outburst helps the Bronx Bombers edge the Indians, 8-7.
1938 Monte Pearson becomes the first pitcher to throw a no hitter in Yankee Stadium. The right-hander faces only 27 batters, thanks to two double plays, beating the the Indians, 13-0, for his 10th consecutive victory.
1941 Beating the Braves 6-4, Charlie Root, best known for giving up Babe Ruth’s ‘called’ home run, becomes the first pitcher to win 200 games in a Cub uniform.
1946 At Owners’ Meeting, a committee formed to study integration, which includes Red Sox owner Tom Yawkey, delivers its secretive report defending the covert color barrier which exists in professional baseball. The absurd reasons given to why blacks shouldn’t be allowed to play in the big leagues include an absence of skills due to inferior training and lack of fundamentals and the need to respect Negro League contracts, but another lesser known motivation may have been profit as revealed later in the report, “The Negro leagues rent their parks in many cities from clubs in Organized Baseball (and) Club owners in the major leagues are reluctant to give up revenues amounting to hundreds of thousands of dollars every year” as well as the fear white fans would be driven away if black players attracted more minorites to the ballpark.
1951 Scoring all the Phillies’ runs in the victory over the Reds, Del Wilber hits three solo homers making it the first time in major league history a player has accounted for all the runs in 3-0 game with home runs. The 32-year old catcher will only hit a total of 19 homers during his major league career.
1955 In his second big league start, bonus baby Sandy Koufax two-hits the Reds at Ebbets Field, 7-0. Showing his future dominance of the 1960’s, the southpaw strikes out 14 Cincinnati batters.
1974 At Shea Stadium, Benny Ayala becomes the first National Leaguer in 13 years to hit a home run in his first major league at-bat. The Mets rookie goes deep off Astros’ hurler Tom Griffin in New York’s 4-2 win.
1975 At Candlestick Park, nearly half the outs in the Giants 9-1 victory over the Expos come via the strike out. John Montefusco, who goes the distance to get the win, strikes out 14 Montreal batters, and the ‘Count’ and his teammates reciprocate by whiffing 11 times, including the three times he goes back to the dugout with a bat in his hands.
1977 In an 8-2 victory at Yankee Stadium, Rangers Bump Wills and Toby Harrah hit back-to-back inside-the-park home runs on consecutive pitches. It is only time in baseball history the feat has been accomplished.
1978 By hitting his 200th home run, Reds’ second baseman Joe Morgan becomes the first major leaguer to hit 200 homers as well as steal 500 bases.
1982 In the 5-4 loss to the Brewers, A’s Rickey Henderson breaks Lou Brock’s 1974 single season record of 118 stolen bases. By stealing a total of four bases Rickey ends the day with 122 and will finish the season with 130.
1986 With one out in the bottom of the eleventh inning and the visiting Mets ahead, 6-5, Padres infielder Tim Flannery lines a single to center field where Lenny Dykstra comes up throwing to nail the runner trying to score from second base. Knocked on his back by Gary Templeton, catcher John Gibbons, from a prone position, throws a strike to Howard Johnson who tags out Flannery, trying to get to third base, ending the game with an unusual 8-2-5 double play.
1997 In honor of first baseman Jim Thome’s birthday, the Indians begin pulling up their socks to just below the knees. The Tribe will win 17 of 27 games en route to clinching American League East flag while sporting this new look.
1999 In a 4-1 Expos loss to the Reds at Olympic Stadium, Vladimir Guerrero’s hitting streak, the longest in the big leagues since 1987, ends at 31 consecutive games. The Montreal outfielder’s accomplishment sets a franchise record.
2001 In the Nippon Ham Fighters-Fukuoka Daiei Hawks contest, Michihiro Ogasawara doubles and tallies on Yukio Tanaka’s single breaking a 51-year Japanese record by scoring a run in 17 consecutive games. Indian Kenny Lofton (2000) and Yankee Red Rolfe (1939) share the major league record of 18 straight games.
2001 With his 17th dinger this month, Cubs slugger Sammy Sosa ties the National League record for August homers established by Willie Mays in 1965. Tiger Rudy York set the major league mark going yard 18 times in the eighth month of 1937.
2005 Jeff Kent becomes the first player to hit 300 homers as a second baseman. The Dodger infielder, who has surpassed Ryne Sandberg’s total of 277 last September, is the major league leader at this position with Joe Gordon holding the American League record with 246 round-trippers.
2005 After losing a no-hitter with two outs in the ninth inning against the Yomiuri Giants earlier in the season, Fumiya Nishiguchi (16-4) sees his perfect game against the expansion Tohoku Rakuten Golden Eagles go into extra innings. The Seibu Lions right-hander gives up a hit and has to settle for a 10-inning complete game shutout.
2007 Citing the need a fresh start, Drayton McLane, owner of the last place Astros, fires skipper Phil Garner and GM Tim Purpura. Bench coach Cecil Cooper is named interim manager with long-time team executive Tal Smith being appointed as general manager, also on interim basis.
2007 Jake Peavy becomes the Padres leader in career strikeouts when he punches out Orlando Hudson looking at an inside fastball in the first inning of a 3-1 San Diego victory over the Diamondbacks at PETCO Park. The right-handed fireballer, who fans 11 in the game, moves past Andy Benes who had struck out 1036 batters pitching for the Friars from 1989 to 1995.
