The .300 Club Angels Roll Along

The Angels may have swapped out Maicer Izturis for Howie Kendrick at second base on Wednesday night, but the .300 club still had a strong showing. Entering the game, every Angel starter except Kendrick had an average of .300 or better. By the end of the game, catcher Mike Napoli’s average had dropped below .300…Read More

Cliff Lee Is This Year’s CC Sabathia, Only Better

Last year the reigning AL Cy Young winner, CC Sabathia, was traded by the Indians prior to the trade deadline.

Despite playing the hot corner and dealing with balls…Read More

Adam Dunn Goes Golden Sombrero

It’s been quite some time since we’ve had a player take the golden sombrero. Franklin Gutierrez came close over the weekend, but luckily for his sake he reached base in his final at-bat after striking out the first four times. And so it was the case on Tuesday night that Nationals slugger Adam Dunn struck…Read More
