If the Angels did one thing right this off-season, it was overhauling an uncharacteristically lousy bullpen. The relief corps is now stocked with a mix of reliable veterans and tantalizing young power arms, but will the unsettled closer's role make the winter makeover a whole lot of work for nothing?
Just when you thought it was safe to go back to the bullpen... FRAUDNEY!!!!!
One of the best Angels of all-time retired yesterday. Garret Anderson officially called his career over, but instead of appreciating his past glories, all I could think about was how much I hated watching him play. What kills me about that is that I know I am not alone, and so does GA. I just wish that it didn't have to be that way.
This is the most exciteable picture of Anderson that I could find on the entire internet.

2010 was a year to forget for Bobby Abreu and with a move to full-time DH this season, he is hoping to get his groove back and become a quality run producer for the Halos again. Can Abreu bounce back or has old age finally caught up to the Angels' senior statesman?

Jered Weaver and the other Angels pulled off a hell of a prank yesterday, displaying Mike Trout's phone number on the scoreboard and encouraging fans to call him with any and all baseball questions. No doubt Mike received so many calls that he had to change his number, but I can't help but wonder what fans would actually call him about knowing this was just a prank. Sounds like a great idea for Twitter Trend Tuesday to me: #MikeTroutPhoneCalls
