Los Angeles Angels
Do closer celebrations bother you? Here is a list of some of my favorite closer celebrations to help you decide whether they are awesome or down right classless.
With their 10-7 loss to the Angels on Sunday, the Rangers have dropped eight consecutive games, eight straight at home, and their last 12 against AL West opponents.

All-Star center fielder Mike Trout had a three-run homer among his four hits for the fast-starting Los Angeles Angels in a 15-6 victory over the freefalling Texas Rangers on Thursday night.

Howie Kendrick hit an RBI double in the 10th inning to give Los Angeles a 3-2 victory over the Texas Rangers on Saturday night.
Garrett Richards pitched six innings of four-hit ball, David Freese drove in two runs, and the Los Angeles Angels beat Texas 7-3 on Friday night.

Prince Fielder had a pair of RBI doubles to end a drought of 39 at-bats without an extra-base hit, and the Texas Rangers trounced the Los Angeles Angels 14-3 on Sunday.
Please be aware of the programming changes for Friday, May 2, and beyond.
Albert Pujols smiled as he explained why he felt the need to apologize to his wife for hitting homer No. 500 so quickly after No. 499. She had planned to be there in person once he got within one of the milestone. He didn’t give her the chance.
