With spring training just over thirty days away, thoughts are turning to baseball season. While two of the three teams in Southern California made major moves during the offseason, the Los Angeles Angels have been pretty quiet in the offseason. After a dominating regular season that ended in a disappointing American League Division Series loss to the Kansas City Royals, the Angels have opted to make just minor moves in the offseason, avoiding the big free agent splash signings they’ve made in recent years. With the heart of the team returning from a year ago, including the best player in baseball Mike Trout, the Angels are primed for another division title and a run towards the playoffs. The big question on the minds of Angels fans is whether they’ve done enough to make a deep playoff run. Here’s a look at the Angels offseason and some potential questions.

Who’s at second? In opting to trade Howie Kendrick to the Los Angeles Dodgers the Angels said goodbye to one of their most consistent performers who was coming off of one of the better seasons of his career. Josh Rutledge, who the Angels acquired from the Colorado Rockies will compete for the job, as will Taylor Featherston, Johnny Giavotella and Grant Green. Kendrick formed a wonderful double play combination with shortstop Erick Aybar, generally playing solid defense and hitting around .300 with a penchant for clutch hits. Whoever replaces Kendrick, they’ll have big shoes to fill.

When will Garrett Richards return? According to his agent, the Angels right-hander, who suffered a season-ending knee injury on August 20, will be ready by the start of the regular season. Richards was given clearance to throw on December 5, and started running on January 1. By the end of January he should be throwing off the mound and resuming “light” baseball activities. The return of the Angels ace is vital to their chances next season. The big right-hander had a breakout season in 2014, finishing with a 13-6 record to go with a 2.60 ERA. Richards was an American League Cy Young candidate before injuring his knee while covering first base at Fenway Park against the Boston Red Sox. It will be a major boost if the Angels ace is ready to start the regular season. If not the rest of the rotation, including Matt Shoemaker, Jered Weaver and Hector Santiago will need to perform well to make up for the absence of Richards.

The Josh Hamilton Saga: Three off-seasons ago the Angels signed Josh Hamilton to a massive free agency contract. The former All-Star hasn’t lived up to his contract, struggling greatly while also dealing with injury. With a whopping three years and $83 million left on his contract the Angels are limited in their ability to trade Hamilton. The 34-year-old is clearly declining and not the player the Angels had in mind when they signed him three summers ago. The dilemma now for the Angels is what to do with Hamilton. If they could find a trade partner willing to take on his contract the best move for the Angels would be to deal Hamilton. Unfortunately, due to the massive contract remaining, that is unlikely.

Trout selected to start All-Star game; Richards snubbed

Los Angeles Angels Tickets


While Mike Trout was selected for his third All-Star game in three seasons, starting pitcher Garrett Richards was undeservedly snubbed as a starting pitcher. The Angels, who currently sport the third best record in all of baseball, had just one player selected for the All-Star game. Oakland, who lead the Angels by just 3.5 games in the division, had six players picked to the team, something that will sure to be a motivating factor for the Angels in the second half of the season.



In just his third season Mike Trout is putting together yet another incredible season and should be the leader to take home his first MVP trophy. The Angels superstar center fielder is batting .308 with 20 home runs and 63 runs batted in. He’ll start the All-Star game for the second straight year. Trout, who hit a 489 foot home run in Kansas City two weeks ago, decided not to participate in this year’s home run derby, saying he wants to just enjoy the event. He did go on to say that the home run derby will be an option later in his career. Trout will join Adam Jones of the Baltimore Orioles and Jose Bautista of the Toronto Blue Jays in the American League outfield.



One of the bigger snubs this season was Angels starting pitcher Garrett Richards, who earned his 10th victory on Sunday with another stellar performance versus the Houston Astros. Richards has an outstanding 2.71 ERA and 119 strikeouts. He’s evolved into one of the better power pitchers in the American League, holding opponents to a .196 average, best in the American League. Yu Darvish, Felix Hernandez, Max Scherzer, Masahiro Tanaka, Jon Lester, David Price, Scott Kazmir and Mark Buehrle were selected over Richards, who’s emerged as a legitimate Cy Young contender. Richards arguably deserved the nod over David Price, but the Tampa Bay Rays needed an All-Star selection and Price earned the nod.

It’s not over yet for Richards, who can make the team as part of the “final five” balloting. Richards will face off against four other American League starters in a banner year for pitching in the AL. Chris Sale of the Chicago White Sox, Rick Porcello of the Detroit Tigers, Dallas Keuchel of the Houston Astros and Corey Kluber of the Cleveland Indians are the others vying for the last spot. For Richards to make it Angels fans will need a big showing in the online balloting. In addition to the final five balloting Richards is an option to be selected to the game should a starter drop out because they’re scheduled to pitch next Sunday. Richards pitches on Friday night versus the Texas Rangers, giving him the fight amount of rest to pitch in Tuesday’s game.

Shortstop Erick Aybar made a solid case for his first All-Star selection. The veteran Angels shortstop is having the best hitting season of his career, to go along with his usual outstanding glove work. Aybar leads all American League shortstops in runs batted in. There was not a backup selected at shortstop. Derek Jeter, who won the fan balloting in his final season, will likely play the entire game at shortstop.

Los Angeles Angels Ready For 2014 Season

Los Angeles Angels Tickets

Angels 2014

It’s been a disappointing couple of years for the Los Angeles Angels. After a ten-year stretch that saw them average ninety wins a season the Angels have suffered through back-to-back difficult seasons. In 2013, after entering the season as division favorites, the Angels struggled most of the season before a late run gave them a respectable record. While the Angels have struggled the Oakland Athletics and Texas Rangers have competed for top spot in the division. In the past two winters the Angels have opted for big free agent signings like Albert Pujols and Josh Hamilton, spending over $400 million combined on the two players who both had difficult seasons in 2013. This past winter Los Angeles went in a different direction, making less high profile moves designed to build the overall talent level and depth of the club, especially the pitching staff. With several good offseason moves and health from Albert Pujols expectations are up again in Anaheim.

Here’s why the Angels will make the playoffs in 2014:

Trout and Calhoun: During his first two major league seasons Mike Trout has produced numbers that rival Hall of Famers such as Willie Mays. The twenty-two year-old sensation is the best overall player in the game at an age that many top level talents are still playing double AA ball. He’s a once in a generation talent who’ll now occupy centerfield after the Peter Bourjos trade. Joining Trout in the outfield is the talented Kole Calhoun. With Bourjos in St. Louis the 26-year-old Calhoun will have an everyday role and look for the lefthander to put together a solid season. He put together solid numbers in 222 plate appearances last season, a performance that should continue since the young outfielder has produced at every level he’s played at.

A Healthy Pujols: Albert Pujols tried to gut it out and play with severe pain from Plantar Fasciitis last season, but the severe pain greatly limited the former five-time MVP and eventually ended his season. His inability to run and play the field greatly impacted his performance and impact on the team. After season ending surgery Pujols looks healthy this spring and should have a big season. If Pujols can rebound with a big season the Angels offense will be extremely dangerous.

Offseason Trades: The Angels used two big assets, Peter Bourjos and Mark Trumbo, to acquire help and fill a couple of glaring needs, third base and the pitching staff. The Angels acquired third baseman David Freese and pitchers Tyler Skaggs, Hector Santiago and Fernando Salas in the Bourjos/Trumbo deals. While Freese, a former World Series MVP struggled last season, he’s a big improvement over what the Angels trotted out at third last season. Skaggs and Santiago are talented young starters that will give the Angels two very good arms behind Jered Weaver and CJ Wilson. In 23 starts for the White Sox last season Santiago had an excellent 3.56 ERA and 137 strikeouts in 149 innings pitched. The 6’5” Skaggs, a native of Santa Monica, is one of the top young lefthanders in the game. Although they are young both players give the Angels and upgrade n the starting pitching department. Salas is a dependable reliever who saved 24 games for the Cardinals in 2011. He’ll join another former Cardinals reliever, Joe Smith, in a revamped bullpen.

Even with the offseason moves the Angels still enter the season with a few question marks. Behind the top five starters there is very little rotation depth, so an injury to a starting pitcher or some tough outings from Skaggs and Santiago could force the Angels to rely on a player like Joe Blanton in the lineup. Offensively the big question mark will continue to be what type of production the Angels can get from Josh Hamilton. The former Ranger had a brutal first half and a somewhat better second half last season, but still well below his career standards. If Hamilton continues to struggle the Angels may miss the big bat of Mark Trumbo in the lineup. Additionally although the acquisitions of Smith and Salas will help the bullpen the Angels relief crew hasn’t been the same since Bud Black left to manage the Padres several seasons ago. They have the depth and several good arms in the pen. If they can find consistency and closer Ernesto Frieri can avoid his bouts of wildness the Angels bullpen should be in good shape.

PECOTA, the advanced statistical system invented by Nate Silver for Baseball Prospectus projects the Angels to be a playoff team in 2014. PECOTA projects a wild card finish for the Angels based on having the second ranked offense in the American League for 2014, based on improved seasons from David Freese, Albert Pujols and Josh Hamilton.

The Angels Start off the 2014 Season on March 31 against the Seattle Mariners. Opening Day Angels Tickets run from $55 to $355 per seat. Of course the biggest series for the Angels this season is going to the the Yankees who will be on the Derek Jeter fair well tour. The first meet up is May 5th – 7th at Angels Stadium.

Angels Stadium

Angeles Stadium

If you’re heading to the Angels Stadium of Anaheim to catch a Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim baseball game, then chances are you’re going to be out for the day or night. If you’re like a lot of American, a good ole ballpark frank will do the trick, but if your palette requires a bit more than the musty stench of beer brats, there are plenty of options to stir your senses in the right direction. Below are three suggestions for alternatives to “food by the masses”:

Haven Gastropub Orange

Haven Gastropub

1. Haven Gastropub

190 S. Glassell St. Orange, CA 92866

(714) 221-0680

10 Minutes from Angels Stadim (Get Directions)


With top of the line libations and a menu that is worthy of multiple trips, Haven Gastropub provides you food that you will actually want to savor before going to the Angels game. The classic Mac & Cheese comes with Truffle shavings that add a flavorful kick, and the Chicken & Waffles combine sweet and savory that will make desert unnecessary. The service is consistently on time and friendly and extremely attentive to all special needs. The Haven Burger topped with the in-house ketchup is a pure delight that is not to be missed. American cuisine at its finest with a fine drought to flush it down.



2. Bruxie

292 N Glassell St, Orange, California 92866

(714) 633-3900

10 Minutes from Angels Stadim (Get Directions)


Bruxie is considered an American Bistro, and might also be compared to Haven Gastropub, but as the much cheaper version. Think of it as a step up from ballpark food, and a step down from Haven. They do have a number of local favorites including the buttermilk fried chicken waffle sandwich, which will leave you with the happiest guy ache you’ve ever had. It is served with a light honey glaze and fresh fruit to try and distract you from the fact that you are eating chicken inside a waffle, but don’t be fooled. You will be back for more, because it is just that good. The service is friendly, and people here tend to enjoy themselves whether they are going to the game or not. Great for large families and parties.

Blue Bayou Restaurant

For the best straight up Cajun food that you will find anywhere near Anaheim, the Blue Bayou is a no brainer. Entering the Bayou, you feel as though you’re in the French quarter in Louisiana, and the feeling will stay with you through the meal. You have to enter into Disneyland to get into this amazing restaurant, but it is almost worth the price of admission by itself. The beef short ribs and the baked apple are local favorites that you must try. Watch out for the Pirates of the Caribbean right outside the door!

LA Angels Tickets

Los Angeles Angels Tickets

With another big offseason splash in Anaheim and the mega-moves made in Chavez Ravine, Southern California just may be the new center of the baseball universe. The baseball arms race has left the Northeast and shifted west. A year removed from the massive Albert Pujols contract the Angels surprised many by doling out another massive contract, this time to the mega-talented but sometime troubled Josh Hamilton. By replacing Torii Hunter with Hamilton the Angels have gotten younger and scarier from an opposing pitcher perspective, with an outfield that now boasts two of the most naturally gifted players in the last twenty years in Mike Trout and Hamilton.

The move to sign Hamilton was coupled with the cost cutting dumping of Dan Haren, Ervin Santana and Hunter. It’s no question the Angels have gotten flashier, but have they gotten better? Here’s a rundown with some analysis of their offseason moves.

Josh Hamilton: There’s no question that if Josh Hamilton is healthy the Angels probably boast three of the top ten hitters in the game. From an outsiders perspective the gut reaction to the deal is that the Angels clearly upgraded over Torii Hunter. Although they clearly got younger, the performance of Hamilton from an advanced metrics perspective was comparable to Hunter’s performance last year. As David Schoenfeld at ESPN has pointed out via Baseball-Reference Hunter actually had a higher Wins Above Replacement (5.5) than Hamilton (3.4) last year. Hamilton clearly outpaced Hunter from a traditional baseball statistical perspective (HR’s, RBI’s, etc) but did so with a higher number of plate appearances and in a much more hitter friendly ballpark. Of course Hunter is an aging player and likely would not have repeated his performance of the previous year. Hamilton should also benefit from the presence of Albert Pujols in the lineup. Of course signing Josh Hamilton to such a big and lengthy contract is not without risk. Although he’s performed pretty consistently in Texas there is the always present risk of addiction, as well as a history of nagging injuries. From a win-now perspective it’s probably a good move.

Questionable back-end of the rotation: The Angels went after Zack Grienke but lost out to the cross-town Dodgers. Instead of using the Grienke money on pitching they used in on Hamilton. This combined with Dan Haren now being in a Nationals uniform has left some question marks in the rotation. Haren clearly regressed last year and it was probably wise to move him based on the sheer number of innings he’s pitched over the past decade. With Haren out as well as rotation fixture Ervin Santana the Angels rotation will have a different look. The big question is who’s the number three behind established aces Jered Weaver and CJ Wilson? They went out and added Joe Blanton and Tommy Hansen who both had ERA’s in the high fours in the National League. It’s questionable how those moves will transfer to the AL. Blanton is an innings eater but in most rotations is typically your fourth or fifth starter. Hansen has respectable career numbers but has a history of injuries. The bottom of the Angels rotation is a big question mark.

The Lineup: The starting pitching question marks may not be that important since the lineup is going to be ridiculous. What can you say about Mike Trout that hasn’t been already said, other than the fact he had one of the greatest seasons in baseball history as a rookie. The projected top six of Trout, Aybar, Pujols, Hamilton, Trumbo and Kendrick may be the top lineup in baseball. It’s difficult to find any weak spots and its likely Trumbo surpasses power numbers from last season.

Burnett and Madson: A traditional strength under Mike Scioscia the bullpen was a bit of a disaster last season and clearly in need of an upgrade. In Sean Burnett and Ryan Madson the Angels made a couple of nice moves, especially with the pickup of the underrated Burnett. Over the past few years in Pittsburgh and Washington Burnett has quietly been one of the more effective left set up men in the National League, pitching a solid number of innings with an ERA under three. Just thirty he’s still in his prime and the Angels were able to get him at a premium, just 8 million over 2 years. Even though Madson is coming off Tommy John surgery and may not be ready for opening day, he’s a compelling pickup who could provide some depth at the back of the pen. Madson and Burnett should provide depth, but there are still some question marks with closer Ernesto Frieri. Last season was a tale of two halves for Frieri, with his numbers regressing after the all-star break, contributing to the Angels total of 23 blown saves last season which tied Boston for first in the AL.

It’s hard to get a feel on what these moves will mean in the end. Although Hamilton brings a big bat to the lineup they signed him in lieu of going after pitching. With Haren gone and Grienke with the Dodgers the starting rotation really has some question marks. The bullpen has added depth and Frieri is a year older. Will the Angels simply outscore teams? With one of the best managers in the game they’re always going to be a contender, but it’s hard to see the Angels running away with things in a pretty competitive division. .

Angeles the team to see in LA?

Los Angeles Angeles

Los Angeles Angeles

With new ownership, the Cy Young award winner and the best record in baseball, the Dodgers seem to be the talk of the town. But what about that other LA team? The Angels seem somewhat to be flying under the radar, especially considering their tremendous recent success. With the signing of future Hall of Famer Albert Pujols and starting pitcher C.J. Wilson in the off-season came expectations for this club probably bigger than ever before in the franchise’s history. When they failed to immediately deliver, beginning the season with just a 6-14 record, the hype quickly dwindled.

But following their slow start, the Halos have gone 27-16, including an eight game win streak at the end of May. Lately they’ve been firing on all cylinders and have become one of the most exciting clubs to watch in the league. After his very slow start, keeping right around the Mendoza line in the month of April, Pujols is back to his normal, machine-like self. During a 19-game stretch in May he raised his average from .211 to .260, with six bombs and 19 RBIs. He has also drove in 33 runs in 29 games for the month. Having your $240 million player in the middle of the lineup swinging it like he should, as well as the team’s pitching staff doing its job from top to bottom, is certainly key factor to the team’s recent triumphs. However, the biggest contributor to their success: a 20 year old kid.

Since being called up in late April, Mike Trout is hitting .354 with six home runs and 15 stolen bases. No coincidence that since his callup, the Angels have just found ways to win. The leadoff man and defensive captain in center field has not missed a start since being placed on the roster. Many “lifers” who have been around the sport for a long time see Trout run and say he could be the fastest down the line baseball has ever seen. His tremendous speed makes him a nightmare for defenses when he gets on base. His outstanding play has made him the leading candidate (by far) for AL Rookie of the year and even brought about some discussion of the MVP award for the 20 year old. Sparked by Trout’s incredible skills, aggression and enthusiasm for the game, the Angels have become the team to see in Los Angeles.

Latroy Hawkings Angels Reliever

Latroy Hawkings Angels

LaTroy Hawkins

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim is a team with a lot of outstanding players. One of these players is LaTroy Hawkins.

LaTroy Hawkins is a 6 feet five inch relief pitcher who is a right-handed thrower and also a right-handed hitter. He used to play baseball when he was in high school in Westside Gary, Indiana. It was in 1991 when he was drafted in the 7th round by the team of Twins in the amateur draft. He signed with the team on June 7, 1991. By then, he has his next four years playing in the team’s minor league system. In April 29, 1995, he has his first appearance in the Major League Baseball and it was challenging for him as the team faced the team of Orioles.

Daniel John Haren who is of Irish and Mexican descent was born on September 17, 1980, in Monterey Park, California. He is a Major League Baseball starting pitcher for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. Haren graduated from Bishop Amat High School in La Puente, CA in 1998. He then attended Pepperdine University in Malibu, CA on a baseball scholarship. Together with Noah Lowry, a left-handed pitcher just one month younger than Haren, they formed the best starting pitching duo in the West Coast Conference.
Both Haren and Lowry skipped their senior seasons. Lowry was taken in the 1st round o 30th overall by the San Francisco Giants and Haren was taken in the 2nd round on 72nd overall by the St. Louis Cardinals in the 2001 Major League. Haren posted a 2.22 ERA in 17 starts, and Lowry posted a 1.71 ERA in 18 starts.
In 2002, Haren made 28 starts in A-ball for Peoria and Potomac, finishing with a combined ERA of 2.74. He started Double-A Tennessee, but was promoted after eight starts to Triple-A Memphis in 2003. Then he made his major league debut at the age of 22. He showed off his batting skills by hitting the very first pitch he saw for a double. He was out-dueled by Jason Schmidt, who went on to finish second in the National League Cy Young Award voting that year.

In 2004, he was sent back down to AAA Memphis and received a late-season call-up, and made five appearances in the post-season for the Cardinals, including two in the World Series. He was later traded to the Oakland Athletics for Mark Mulder, one of the best pitchers in the American League at the time.

Haren went 14-12 with a 3.73 ERA in his first full season as a major leaguer. He also got the opportunity to pitch against the rival San Francisco Giants in the Bay Bridge Series.
Haren broke the top 10 in the American League in the following categories: innings (217-9th place), strikeouts (163-6th place), and complete games (3-4th place) in 2005.

Haren had one of the best seasons among any pitcher in the majors. Haren finished in the top ten in the American League in wins, with 15, strikeouts, with 192, and finished in the top three in the AL in ERA with 3.07 in 2007. He was also selected to start the MLB All Star Game that year and was traded to the Arizona Diamondbacks along with Connor Robertson.

2008, he was selected to the 2008 All-Star game at Yankee Stadium along with his teammate, Brandon Webb. He has an impressive 3.33 ERA to go along with a 16-8 win-loss record, and a career-high 206 strikeouts.

In 2009, Haren was also selected a 2009 NL All-Star, representing the Diamondbacks along with Justin Upton. He was named # 33 on the Sporting News’ list of the 50 greatest current players in baseball finishing with a record of 14-10, 3.14 ERA, and 223 strikeouts.

In 2010, he joined the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. Haren went 5-4 with 75 strikeouts and a 2.87 ERA and posting a .364 batting average and .902 OPS with one home run in 55 at bats.

As for his pitching style is often dubbed a “chess match” by reporters and announcers. Haren usually has a slow pitching delivery, highlighted by a slight pause in the middle of his windup, that he speeds up with runners on base. Haren throws a 91-94 mph fastball with movement. A recently added 90-93 mph two-seam fastball, a sharp split-finger fastball, and a spike curve. Haren has also added and relied more heavily upon an 86-90 mph cut fastball, which he credited for last season’s success. His curveball is just an average offering that he flips over to get ahead early in the count, while his splitter is a plus pitch and his main strikeout weapon.
