LA Angels: 3 dream pitchers that can quickly help fix the rotation next year

The LA Angels have a starting rotation problem. The fans have been calling for it to end for far too long now, and Perry Minasian needs to fix this right now. He went all out in the draft, drafting all pitchers. He now needs to continue prioritizing pitching in the offseason, no matter what it takes. There are plenty of great arms on the free agent market, and one I really like in particular potentially on the trade block.

Shohei Ohtani wins first of what will be award-filled offseason

Shohei Ohtani is about to represent the LA Angels very well when it comes to earning awards this offseason, and it’s already started. Ohtani has been named MLB Player of the Year by Baseball America. He truly was the best player in baseball this year, and it wasn’t even close....

This shows how loved Shohei Ohtani is by the other players in MLB

Shohei Ohtani just had arguably the greatest season of all time in his dominant 2021 campaign with the LA Angels. Smoking 46 bombs, driving in 100 runs (as a two-hole hitter), scoring 103 runs, and posting a .965 OPS was pretty great in itself. Doing it while also starting 23 games on the mound, and posting a 3.18 ERA to go along with a 9-2 record and a 1.090 WHIP was that much crazier.

LA Angels: The case for bringing back Mike Mayers and Steve Cishek

Ask any LA Angels fan what they thought of the bullpen in 2021 and they’ll probably tell you that outside of Raisel Iglesias and some of the rookies, it was generally atrocious. While that sentiment mostly rings true, it doesn’t tell the whole story. In this case, it leaves out...

LA Angels: 3 perfect free agents to immediately target

The LA Angels have the opportunity to have a tremendous offseason. The Halos have a lot of money to spend, and are a prime free agent destination based on their location here in the beautiful and sunny Los Angeles-Anaheim area. The Angels already have the two best players in baseball....

LA Angels’ scouting director Matt Swanson out after disappointing run

Matt Swanson, the scouting director for the LA Angels, has lost his job after overseeing the last five drafts, per Jeff Fletcher of the Orange Country Register. There haven’t been many notable players that Swanson has hit on during his tenure in the role. He drafted Jo Adell in 2017, who appears to be a great pick and drove in 26 RBI in 35 games this season. Other than that, the players he’s drafted generally haven’t had major positive impacts on the team.

LA Angels: 3 players on postseason rosters who are a perfect fit

Perry Minasian and the LA Angels need to be watching the MLB Postseason very closely. There are so many great players playing October baseball right now, and the Halos need to be thinking about which of these players are available. Some of these guys are perfect fits for our club....

LA Angels: Giving letter grades for core position players in 2021

The LA Angels had a rough season last year, and most blame pitching. I don’t blame them, as the pitching was atrocious. The position players didn’t produce to their best ability too, but much of that was due to injuries. The season’s come to a close, and it’s worth taking...

LA Angels: 3 players the Halos totally wish they still had on their roster

The LA Angels are unfortunately at home right now, not playing in the postseason. Perhaps they would be, if general management had done a better job. The roster on this team is not where it needs to be. While watching us fall short of expectation this year, I can’t help but wonder if the team still wishes it had some former players who have been playing quality baseball recently.

LA Angels: 3 areas of strength Halos can enter 2022 with

The LA Angels are getting into quite the pivotal offseason here this winter. They have a lot to fix, but there’s also some things that the Angels are already pretty good at. They’ll need to tweak at least some of these areas of strength, but some they’re already looking just fine at.

LA Angels: 4 biggest questions of the offseason answered by HH staff

The LA Angels have an incredibly influential offseason coming up here. The Halos were expected by many to win the American Least West division this year, and then didn’t even finish .500. With the offseason being very important for this team, we at Halo Hangout gathered together and answered the...

LA Angels: What the offseason budget looks like for Arte Moreno

LA Angels‘ owner Arte Moreno has a net worth of about $3.6 billion. He’s rich, and it’s an advantage to have a rich owner running your favorite baseball team. Last year, the Angels had the seventh-highest payroll in baseball at $180,349,558. The crazy thing is, teams with owners worth $3.6...

LA Angels: What actually went right for the Halos this season

The LA Angels had a much different year than we expected. A 77-85 season was not on our minds this time around, and that’s what we got. We went through a lot as fans this year. Our franchise player in Mike Trout went down for four and a half months, another $35 million man in Anthony Rendon missed over 100 games, and another big-money player in Justin Upton either missed time due to injury or was hindered due to injury. Our pitching coach got busted for sexual misconduct so we sent him packing, and our pitching couldn’t recover.

LA Angels: What went wrong this season for the Halos

Unfortunately, the LA Angels disappointed us this year. A team who many had winning the AL West ended up going 77-85. Lots went wrong for this team, but it’s always important to break down the biggest blunders of one of the bigger disappointments in baseball this year. The LA Angels...
