It’s been a lost season for the Red Sox, but the same can’t be said for the Angels, who have beaten the Red Sox three straight times and are in first place in the AL West. THe third win in this stretch, though, was very costly, as the team lost its best pitcher, Garret Richards […]

AL West Swap: Angels trade Kendrys Morales to Mariners for Jason Vargas in wake of Hamilton Signing

In the past week, the Angels shocked the baseball world by signing Josh Hamilton to a 5-year, $125 MM deal to play in the outfield and hit behind Albert Pujols. This left a major logjam in their batting order and still some holes in their starting rotation. Sure, their front two starters were excellent, in […]

Josh Hamilton to the Angels Changes Everything in the American League

Major League Baseball beware. The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim are fully loaded, and will not back down to anyone.

Combine those all-stars with solid pieces in Howie Kendrick, Kendrys Morales, and […]

If the Playoffs Started Today – MLB Week 13

It’s almost time for the All Star Game, and plenty of races are still tight.

Lackey Severely Lacking in 11-0 Loss to Angels

Less than 13 hours after playing a marathon, rain-soaked, 13-inning affair against the Angels into the wee hours of Thursday morning, the Red Sox were set to go at it at Fenway Park against the Halos for the final time this season…and we’re only in May. Terry Francona had to use eight pitchers in Thursday […]

Dice-K Dominant Again as Red Sox Shut Out Angels 5-0

The last time Daisuke Matsuzaka allowed zero earned runs in two straight outings was back on July 7th and 13th of 2008. Back then, the Red Sox were the defending champions, and Manny Ramirez was still patrolling left field in Boston. George W. Bush was still president. Tom Brady had short hair. Dice-K followed up […]

Beckett, Bullpen Carry Red Sox Over Angels; Youkilis Injured

The Boston Red Sox needed a strong bullpen performance Thursday night against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. In 10 innings, the offense had left 13 men on base.

Beckett Implodes, Red Sox Fall to Angels

Through the first five innings on Thursday night, Josh Beckett was back into form against a pretty good Angels offense. He allowed just two hits and no runs, and appeared on track for the win in a tight ballgame. Something happened between the fifth and sixth innings. Maybe Beckett checked the calendar to see it’s […]

Red Sox Stay Perfect Against Halos With 7-5 Win

The Red Sox just kept on rolling Wednesday. They beat the Angels 7-5 to take a 9-0 edge in the season series, with the final game coming Thursday. It didn’t take the Sox long to take command, as Dustin Pedroia walked, stole 2nd, and advanced to 3rd on a throwing error in the 1st, and […]

Kalish Hits Grand Slam, Red Sox Top Angels 6-0

The Red Sox entered Tuesday’s contest with the Angels 5.5 games behind both the Yankees and Rays for first place in the AL East and Wild Card. The Yankees and Rays, of course, both won their games.

Scutaro Grand Slam Powers Sox in Sweep of Angels

The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim seem to be a team of bad luck lately. On Monday night in Dan Haren’s debut, the righty was forced to leave the game early after a line drive hit his pitching forearm. The bullpen pitched well but was taxed, and the Red Sox won. Wednesday afternoon, the Red […]

Lackey Beats Angels in Return to LA

Showered with a steady chorus of boos for much of the game in his return to Los Angeles (or is it Anaheim?), John Lackey had his third straight dominating start since the All-Star Break as the Red Sox rotation now looks like one of the best in all of baseball. Lackey, a workhorse through and […]

Haren Injured in Angels Debut, Ortiz Homers Twice in Win

While the Angels pray (get it?) for the young Rangers pitchers to falter so they can gain some ground in the AL West, the team made a serious upgrade to their starting rotation, trading Joe Saunders and three minor league pitchers to the Diamondbacks for Dan Haren. It was a really good move for a […]
