Angels Defend Mike Trout After MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred Says He Should Market Himself More [Update] Angels Defend Mike Trout After MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred Says He Should Market Himself More [Update]

MLB czar Rob Manfred had a pretty short-sighted take to lob at Angels outfielder Mike Trout. Manfred said that Trout—the man who is on pace to beat Ty Cobb and Mickey Mantle for the highest all-time WAR total before their age-27 season—had to “make a decision to engage” in order to be more marketable. The Angels felt…

MLB Commissioner: Actually It Is Mike Trout's Fault That He Is Not More Popular MLB Commissioner: Actually It Is Mike Trout's Fault That He Is Not More Popular

Major League Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred says Mike Trout, the very best baseball player in the world and one of the best in history, isn’t popular enough because he doesn’t want to do commercials:

Shohei Ohtani Hit A Game-Winning Homer With A Busted Elbow And Knee Shohei Ohtani Hit A Game-Winning Homer With A Busted Elbow And Knee

Shohei Ohtani hit the ball far as fuck yesterday, 443 feet to be exact, deep into the ethers of Angel Stadium’s cavernous rock structure in center field. The looping drive was his first homer since May 17, on account of the Grade 2 UCL sprain that kept him out of the lineup from June 4 to July 3. It was the eventual…

Angels Rookie Pitcher Jake Jewell Carried Off On Stretcher After Awful Ankle Injury Angels Rookie Pitcher Jake Jewell Carried Off On Stretcher After Awful Ankle Injury

Angels pitcher Jake Jewell, making only the third MLB appearance of his career, suffered a brutal injury on his right ankle Wednesday night while trying to slide into home for a play at the plate with Boston’s J.D. Martinez.

The Story Of Shohei Ohtani's Legendary BP Sessions, From Those Who Witnessed Them The Story Of Shohei Ohtani's Legendary BP Sessions, From Those Who Witnessed Them

ANAHEIM, Calif. — Three-time World Series champion and Angels hitting coach Eric Hinske burst into the clubhouse like a man possessed. Inside, the Angels relievers and a few other players, including Mike Trout, were decompressing before their May 8 game at the Rockies’ notoriously hitter-friendly ballpark.

Mike Trout Doesn't Deserve This Shit Mike Trout Doesn't Deserve This Shit

Mike Trout got on base four times against the Diamondbacks on Monday night, thanks to two walks and two singles. Trout is basically always on base—he’s currently sporting a career-high .464 OBP—so that’s not a remarkable thing in and of itself. Neither is the fact that his teammates failed to drive him a single time.…

Andrew Heaney Got Doused In A Glorious Ice Bucket Dump Andrew Heaney Got Doused In A Glorious Ice Bucket Dump

There are few better birthday gifts a starting pitcher could ask for than the 23rd-in-OPS Kansas City Royals lineup, which is exactly what the Angels’ Andrew Heaney got for his 27th birthday last night. He threw the first shutout of his career, a one-hit gem in a 1-0 win, and was then treated to one of the most…

Gnarly Rougned Odor Takeout Slide Sparks Benches-Clearing Hullabaloo Gnarly Rougned Odor Takeout Slide Sparks Benches-Clearing Hullabaloo

Benches cleared for a bustling group therapy session after Rougned Odor tried and failed to break up a game-ending double play Friday night by sliding in wide and with his spikes up on the relay from Andrelton Simmons:

Loose Goose At Tigers Game Chased Off The Field And Into A World Of Pain

There was a cool-seeming goose hanging around the field in Detroit during a break in tonight’s Angels-Tigers game, and although the grounds crew made a valiant effort at getting it to scram, little did they know they were chasing the goose straight to his downfall, provided by the unrelenting scoreboard.

Mike Trout Reduces The Yankees To Cannon Fodder Mike Trout Reduces The Yankees To Cannon Fodder

Unbelievably, Saturday morning there were things Mike Trout had not accomplished in a game of baseball. For example, he had never bunted for a home run, nor had he ever killed a dragon with a baseball bat. It turns out he had also never had a five hit game. You can now scratch that last one off the list:

Shohei Ohtani, Please Do The Damn Home Run Derby! Shohei Ohtani, Please Do The Damn Home Run Derby!

Shohei Ohtani doesn’t think he’s ready for the home run derby. “I don’t think I’m at that level yet,” he told reporters yesterday.

Shohei Ohtani's Splitter Is The Most Untouchable Pitch In Baseball Shohei Ohtani's Splitter Is The Most Untouchable Pitch In Baseball

Two-way star Shohei Ohtani helped the Angels end a five-game losing streak with a 110-pitch outing against the Rays Sunday. At this point, Ohtani going for nine strikeouts in 7.2 innings and generally bewitching opposing hitters isn’t much of a surprise, since he’s paired masterful control with devastating velocity…

Mike Trout Is Running Again Mike Trout Is Running Again

Mike Trout’s greatness is all-encompassing and unrelenting. There are no holes to be poked in it, and no complaints to be made about how he chooses to deploy his skills every day. If you were, however, some kind of sick freak who believes that Trout could be doing more to help his team win, you might say that he…

The Rays Are Making History With Strange New Pitching Strategies The Rays Are Making History With Strange New Pitching Strategies

The Rays announced last week an extremely unusual, cosmic-brain plan for the immediate future of their pitching rotation: rather than the traditional approach of deploying a starting pitcher to work through the opposing lineup a few times before yielding to the bullpen, manager Kevin Cash decided to play matchup…

Josh Reddick Fries Mike Trout At Third, Then Cooks Ian Kinsler At The Plate

Astros right fielder Josh Reddick had to have assumed he taught the Angels a lesson about running on his arm in the sixth inning tonight. When Mike Trout tried to move from first to third on a Shohei Ohtani single, he quickly became, in the accurate words of the announcer, “a dead duck.”

Shohei Ohtani's Starting To Reveal All His Powers Shohei Ohtani's Starting To Reveal All His Powers

Shohei Ohtani has a fastball that he can pump up to 100 mph and dot on all four corners of the strike zone. He has a splitter that dives straight into hell and takes the souls of many batters with it. Those are two very good pitches. If you throw those two pitches exclusively, you’re basically late-era Roger Clemens…

Here Are Two More Dope Baseball Things Shohei Ohtani Can Do Here Are Two More Dope Baseball Things Shohei Ohtani Can Do

One of the most fun things about watching a fresh new baseball darling rack up regular major-league at-bats is all the opportunities to see how the skills you’ve been hearing so much about, all those precious tools, actually manifest themselves on the field. You know a guy has power, but does he have big-boy,…

Shohei Ohtani Threw The Ball Hard As Fuck

Baseball prince Shohei Ohtani got knocked around in his last start against the Red Sox and had to leave the game after two innings due to a blister on his pitching hand. That was a bummer, mostly because blisters have a way of being incurable nuisances capable of undermining entire seasons. So when Ohtani took the…

Curse This Shohei Ohtani Blister Curse This Shohei Ohtani Blister

After Angels pitcher Shohei Ohtani started the season on a tear, hitting .367 with three homers through eight games, and posting two dominant starts that featured a five-inning stretch with 65 pitches and 10 strikeouts, it seemed his only kryptonite would be an eventual regression to numbers resembling normalcy. Enter…
