Staying loyal to slumping players may pan out better for real-life MLB managers than for fantasy owners, so think long and hard about keeping your favorite player in the lineup while he’s going through an 0-for-28 slump at the plate. Those at-bats can really hurt your team down the stretch.
The Detroit Tigers and Los Angeles Angels each find themselves in an 0-2 hole. Can either team recover?
It’s down to the Baltimore Orioles, Detroit Tigers, Kansas City Royals and Los Angeles Angels in the American League as the Division Series begin.
The Angels are getting closer to signing Josh Hamilton, according to CBS Sports. Acquiring the former Rangers slugger would likely push Peter Bourjos to the bench.
The Rangers lead the Angels in the AL West by eight games. It ain’t over, but the Angels have to be pretty dejected at this point. There are, however, 16 games remaining between the teams.
In 2001, Barry Bonds hit a record 73 home runs, 15 in the first 35 games of the season. In Josh Hamilton’s first 35 games of the season, he’s blasted 18 homers.
Josh Hamilton stood in the Texas outfield as the cheers got louder and louder. It was the first time the slugger really didn’t know what to do.
It makes sense that Rangers fans might have some bitter feelings directed at Angels pitcher C.J. Wilson, but a YouTube comedy video puts a witty spin on the situation.
C.J. Wilson is sure to hear boos in his return to Texas. There will also be a lot of “Yuuuuu!”
Rangers catcher Mike Napoli can’t quite figure out why Angels pitcher and ex-teammate C.J. Wilson sent his phone number out on Twitter.
With the Rangers having just lost C.J. Wilson and (likely) about to gain Yu Darvish, the question has to be asked. Who would you rather have on the mound?
It looks like the Rangers are going to lose their star left-handed pitcher. According to reports, C.J. Wilson is heading home to California to play for the Angels.
