UCB Project: 2013 American League Predictions

Posted on March 25, 2013 at 1:00 PM
It's that time of year again.  When hope is new, the grass smells clean, and people foolishly put down what they think will happen in the baseball season to come.  The United Cardinal Bloggers are no different.

Every year we take a crack at these things.  Sometimes it goes pretty well--Pittsburgh's late fade last year kept me from nailing them being third and over the .500 mark.  Sometimes it goes disastrously--I had Boston winning the AL East last year.  Yeah, that was pretty much bad from the get-go.

However, terrible performances don't stop us from trying it again anyway.  (Kinda like Mike Matheny continuing to use Victor Marte last year.)  So we'll do it again on the same kinda schedule--the entire American League today, then each division in the National League gets a day before wrapping it up on Friday with postseason predictions and awards.

Since we hardly pay attention to the American League--we all know real baseball lets a pitcher hit, don't we?--let's try to make a quick pass through there today.  If you want to use these as a guide, odds are you better figure the opposite is really going to happen!

Playing Pepper 2013: Los Angeles Angels

Posted on March 6, 2013 at 2:30 PM
For the fifth straight year, Playing Pepper returns to C70 At The Bat.  If you aren't aware, this series helps get a feel for the other 29 teams in baseball by asking those that follow them the closest--their bloggers.  We've got spring training action going, so it's time to play a little pepper.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 
89-73, third in the AL West 

I imagine that many Cardinal fans felt just a little bit of guilty pleasure (OK, maybe for some not-so-guilty) in the 2013 Angels season.  After luring away Albert Pujols (and, at the same time, shelling out money for C.J. Wilson), the expectations were through the roof for the California team.  However, Pujols struggled early, Oakland played better than expected and the big money team watched the playoffs from home.

Undeterred, Anaheim made another splash in the free agent market this offseason.  Will this bet pay off differently?  To find out, I've got Garrett Wilson from Monkey With A Halo to give us some answers.  You can find Garrett on Twitter @monkeywithahalo and you can read on to see what kind of season that former Cardinal just might have.

UCB Prediction Week, Part I: American League

Posted on March 26, 2012 at 11:30 AM
Every year about this time, the United Cardinal Bloggers take aim at their predictions for the upcoming season.  It's a great way to look at the divisions, get a feel for what is going on, and write down picks that you will be trying to scrub from any internet search engine by probably July.

I'm far from an expert, so take all of these picks with a grain of salt.  There are few gut picks that don't have a lot of basis in reality, so feel free to take that into consideration when reading them.

Since the American League doesn't really matter as much, we at the UCB just lump it all into one day.  So keep reading to see how I pick the divisions to shake out.

Playing Pepper 2012: Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

Posted on March 7, 2012 at 11:30 AM
In 2009, I decided to get a feel for other teams around baseball by asking bloggers for those teams some questions about their squad.  Not only has this series been very popular, but it spawned the Baseball Bloggers Alliance.  With camps opening up again and spring training getting into gear, it's time once again to play a little pepper.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim
86-76, second in the AL West

For Cardinal fans, the Angels were positively devilish this offseason.

The California wallets came open as Anaheim nabbed both C.J. Wilson and, most notably and painfully, Albert Pujols from their long-time teams.  Now, fortified with these superstars and a good core to go with them, especially in the rotation, they look to take down the two-time American League Champion Rangers.

Can they do it?  I put the Pepper questions to Garrett Wilson of Monkey With A Halo.  Besides the blog, you can follow him over on Twitter at monkeywithahalo.

Keep reading to find out just what has to happen for this Angels' season to be a success.

Playing Pepper 2011: Los Angeles Angels

Posted on March 8, 2011 at 3:34 PM
Two years ago, I started a series I called Playing Pepper, where I asked questions of bloggers of each major league team about the season to come.  Not only was that informative and entertaining, it led to the spawning of the Baseball Bloggers Alliance.  With spring training coming up, it's time to get back into shape by again playing a little pepper.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim (80-82, 10 GB and third in the AL West)

For the last few years, it's been just automatic that the Angels are going to either win or be in contention for the AL West title.  Last year, though, the wheels fell off as just about everything went wrong.  Even a late trade for Dan Haren couldn't right the ship enough to make a run at the Rangers.

A lot of the same names are back this year, hoping last year was an aberration.  I talked to Garrett Wilson of the Angels blog Monkey With A Halo.  As most of my interview subjects have been, you can find and follow him on Facebook and Twitter if you want to know about the West Coast team.

Coming up, we talk about a former Cardinal farmhand.  OK, so I used that line this morning.  Doesn't mean it's not still true.

Signs Of Cardinal Life

Posted on May 25, 2010 at 7:54 AM
It wasn't a perfect weekend for St. Louis.  Not that it was bad, mind you; anytime you win two of three it's a pretty good set.  However, the signs from this weekend indicate that as nice as this series with the Angels was, better days are a-comin'.

Heroes and Goats, quickly:

Friday (9-5 win)
Hero: Jason Motte.  All the offensive fireworks were nice, but if Motte is his flammable self, it wouldn't have mattered.  Throwing two solid scoreless innings in this one kept it from being a really wild game or a tough loss.
Goat: Matt Holliday.  In a game where almost the entire offense joined in the fun, Holliday went 0-5.
Notes: Brad Penny's grand slam was nice, though it'd have been nicer if that wasn't just evening up the four runs he'd already given up.  And, of course, it'd been much nicer if he hadn't strained his lat while doing it (or, at least, aggravating a pre-existing condition).  Nice night for Felipe Lopez and Skip Schumaker as well.

Saturday (10-7 loss)
Hero: Matt Holliday.  Finally got a home run in front of the home fans.
Goat: Kyle Lohse.  Yes, he wasn't at 100%, or even maybe 70%.  But six runs in 3 and a third is going to get you the tag anyway.
Notes: Nice to see Brendan Ryan with a couple of hits, including a double.  If he can start getting back to being some sort of offensive contributor, things will improve immensely.  It was also nice to see the team rally a bit, even if it fell short.  When I saw them get down 9-2, I never would have expected a final score as close as it was.

Sunday (6-5 win in 10)
Hero: David Freese.  Three hits, two RBI, one run scored.  Are we sure he's just a rookie?
Goat: Ryan Ludwick.  0-5, 4 K is not a good afternoon.
Notes: Really thought about giving Ryan Franklin the Hero tag, with his two scoreless innings in a spot where he had to hold the Angels if only for morale's sake.  Chris Carpenter could have had the Goat--I know he said afterwards he felt like that was one of his best days command wise, but five runs (four earned) is not a good day at the office.

The biggest news out of this weekend, of course, was the DLing of Penny and the potential loss of Lohse.  While it's good to see PJ Walters get the callup (especially after his strong work in Memphis) and it'd be interesting to see Adam Ottovino make his debut, it's still in the best interest of the club to have a healthy and effective Penny and Lohse.  (Whether or not that's a state of nature that's actually possible is completely debatable.)

At least Walters and Ottovino were doing well in Memphis and were legitimate callups (assuming they add Ottovino, but I really can't imagine they won't, especially if the specialists in LA can't quite figure out what the problem with Lohse is).  If they hadn't been, this would be a bigger problem.  As it is, Carpenter is going to have to get back to Carpenter levels and the offense is going to have to start clicking, because the pitching staff may not be able to do all the work anymore.

You can't expect the new recruits, as it were, to live up to the level of Jaime Garcia.  Even with his success this year, the team is carefully monitoring him.  I don't think we'll see a complete game or anything from Garcia and Tony LaRussa probably silently cheers every time Jaime gives up his first hit, so he doesn't have to ponder that "leave him in with a no hitter" question.  

The other news of the weekend involved the first ever public dispute between TLR and Pujols.  Pujols's level of frustration is growing immensely and it is showing in actions that we haven't seen out of him in his decade in St. Louis.  An 0-10 series?  No RBI in 10 games?  One home run this month?  We saw him struggle a few years back, but once he got going, he tore it up.  We've never seen him go strong, then go this cold.

No matter what he's doing on the field, though, TLR was completely in the right to tell him to knock it off and fire back at any criticism.  It's easy to let ego get the best of you and frustration can build into how that is reflected, but getting put in place, as it were, should be a good thing for him.  Not that it's a big deal, but everyone needs correction at some point or another.

On a more light-hearted note, there was a nice article about the Cardinals and their walk-up songs today in the Globe-Democrat.  I think it's pretty funny to see Wainwright taking such a personal interest in both changing Schumaker's song and trying to come up with one for Franklin.  Occasionally, you have to think that starting pitchers have too much time on their hands, but it makes for a fun clubhouse, I'd think.

Also, the Cardinals have announced a push for everyone to Stand For Stan.  If there's anyone that deserves some recognition, it's Stan Musial.  He's been a great symbol for St. Louis for a long time and has never gotten the attention he deserves.  He had to be added to the All-Century Team by the commissioner's office after being left out of the fan voting.  He's never even discussed in the "Greatest Living Ballplayer" discussion.  Even last year, on his own turf, he was relegated to the back burner during the All-Star Game due to the president's decision to attend.

President Obama owes Stan for that slight, at least.  He needs to award the Medal of Freedom to Stan the Man while there is still time.  Be sure to print out your Stan and sign the petition at the link above.

Cards get to head into San Diego today for a series against the surprising Padres.  San Diego holds a one game lead in the NL West at a time when most people thought they'd be weighing offers for Adrian Gonzalez.  Going into Petco, you know that the offense is going to be struggling on both sides, so hopefully the Cardinal pitching can hold out.  At least the Wagonmaker takes the hill first.  Here's what he's done against the Padres:

Not a lot of exposure here. Interesting that old friend and former Cardinal David Eckstein has had the most at-bats against him.  He's kept them in the yard, even though some of the Friars have a pretty tolerable BAA vs. him.  Still, if he can scatter singles, he'll be OK.

Jon Garland goes for the Padres.  Being that he's spent a lot of time in the AL in his career, there's not a lot of data to work with:

Cards have seen Garland about as much as the Padres have seen Wainwright.  Pujols has enjoyed his time against him, but no one else has gone yard.  Hopefully they've seen him enough to stay out of that "new pitcher" trap the Redbirds seem to find themselves in a lot.

Late start with that West Coast game.  With my schedule the next few days, I'll probably not be back until Friday, after the series has wrapped.  Hopefully we'll have good things to talk about then.

Just Enough

Posted on May 21, 2010 at 8:04 AM
The cliche is that, for good pitchers, you have to get to them early or you don't get to them at all.  Apparently Adam Wainwright, if you didn't know, is a good pitcher.

After the Marlins scored two in the first off of Wainwright, it kinda seemed like it was going to be another one of those days.  After all, with this offense, there was no telling when or how long it'd take them to come up with two runs to tie.

Turned out, it didn't take too long, with David Freese getting an RBI single in the first, then the offense tacking on three more in the second.  After that, the bats did their customary shutdown, but with Wainwright clicking on the mound, that's all they needed.

The game story at the Post-Dispatch sheds an encouraging light on the outing of Matt Holliday.  (And it's from Joe Strauss, whose picture you won't find next to optimistic in the dictionary.)  Holliday seems to finally be getting a bit comfortable at the plate.  Whether this is from Albert Pujols hitting behind him or it is just about the time he starts to warm up in a year (remember, he was hitting in Oakland before the trade last year), I don't know, but it bodes well for the Cardinals if he can get on track.

This seems to be a good time to mention a new app for your iPhone and iTouch.  If you are a Holliday fan, LMK has created an app that focuses completely on him.  You get news stories that he's in and pictures that pop up on the web with #7 in them.  LMK provided me a free copy of the app and I've tried it out.  If you are a big Holliday fan, it's probably worth the couple of bucks to download this.  As I look at it now, the news stream has stories from the Post-Dispatch, the New York Post, and Sports Illustrated, among others.  Plus, if you find an article you like, there's a feature to save it to a different tab so you can refer to it later if you want.  As I say, the only thing I got out of this was a free review app, so this isn't a paid endorsement.  Search for Holliday or LMK at the App Store and take a look.

Goat for the game goes to Joe Mather for his 0-4 day.  Even tried to bunt his way on once, which was original, but not successful.  Hopefully Colby Rasmus used his day off to get straightened out, as he's looked a little lost lately at the plate.

It can't be all that good that this incarnation of the Cardinals is actually producing less at this point in the season than last year's version did.  A team with Chris Duncan, Rick Ankiel and Joe Thurston in the lineup scored more runs than this one with Holliday and an every-day Rasmus?  That just doesn't make logical sense.  If the law of averages holds, this team is going to explode soon, just because they'll have to have a big run to make it to their norms.

The Cardinals get another taste of interleague play as the Angels come into town.  If you've read this blog for very long, you know every year when this comes up I express my dislike of interleague play.  I have heard a few others in the media think that it's time has come and gone, but I'm sure that as long as Bud Selig is commissioner, it's going nowhere, and I'm doubtful his successor would look at it either.

Anytime the Angels come into Busch, my mind goes back to that 2002 series, the first time they were in town.  It's a different stadium now and very few players are the same, but the emotional impact of that series, with Jack Buck passing on the evening of what turned out to be Darryl Kile's final start, has stayed with St. Louis for these many years.  If they are still doing this in 25 years, I'm sure that's still the first thing I'll think of when the Angels and Cardinals get together.

Former Cardinal Joel Pineiro returns to his old stomping grounds.  I'm sure Pineiro wants to show that the Cardinals should have at least made an attempt to resign him last year, but with his results and Brad Penny's results this year, I don't think the Cards are that disappointed.  It'll be interesting to see if having Pineiro on staff the last three years gives the Cards a bit of an advantage in knowing what he'll throw.  Here's what he's done against the current Redbirds:

PA AB H 2B 3B HR RBI BB SO BA OBP SLG OPS SH SF IBB HBP GDP
Felipe Lopez 22 21 5 1 0 0 0 1 4 .238 .273 .286 .558 0 0 0 0 0

He hasn't faced too many of these guys, though Felipe Lopez has at least had a number of at-bats against him, even if they weren't anything special.  If Pineiro is getting the ball down tonight, it's going to be another quiet night for the bats.

Coincidentally, Penny is Pineiro's mound opponent tonight, so we'll get to see the decision in a microcosm.  Penny's had a little experience with the current Angel squad:

Bobby Abreu has done some work on Penny in the past, but that's the big bat he'll have to avoid.  Other than him and keeping the ball away from Mike Napoli, he can make this into a pitcher's duel.  With Penny's recent struggles, that'd be a good thing to see.

Postseason Playing Pepper: Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

Posted on October 7, 2009 at 9:14 PM
If you were reading this blog before this season started, you may remember a series I did called "Playing Pepper", where I asked five questions of a blogger covering each major league team.  With the season coming to a close, I thought I'd tap into the talents of the newly formed Baseball Bloggers Alliance and ask five new questions of the bloggers covering the postseason teams.

The Angels are in the postseason again, though like the Cardinals of '02, they've got a fallen teammate on their mind.  I asked Tony from Go Halos about this squad.

C70: What is the Angels' strength going into the postseason?

GH: Most obvious - Deep Starting Pitching.  Less Obviously - Deep relentless lineup.

C70: What worries you about this team?

GH: Our bullpen situation with Brian Fuentes not always a sure bet. Also how the team will respond against the Red Sox. Will their nerves get the best of them again?

C70: What player left off or added to the postseason roster would surprise casual observers, if it happens?

GH: Nothing obvious, But possibly Brandon Wood making the roster rather than Rob Quinlan.

C70: Who is the key player for the Angels, the player that, if they don't go well, the Angels go home early?

GH: John Lackey.  He's has got to be an ace in the playoffs and win game 1.

C70: Are there high expectations for this team?  Is it where the playoffs are enough, the fans expect them to get past the first round, or is anything less than the Series a disappointment?

GH: Anything less than a World Series would be a disappointment, but fans will not be too confident until we finally get past the Red Sox. 

Thanks to Tony for the info!

Tragedy Strikes Angels

Posted on April 9, 2009 at 12:55 PM
Most of you know by now, but if not, Los Angeles Angels rookie Nick Adenhart died in a car accident last night in California, only hours after throwing six scoreless innings.

Cardinal fans know about this.  We know about a young pitcher being with us one moment and gone in an accident the next.  We know about a pitcher not answering the door of his hotel room.

Knowing it doesn't make it any easier to go through, however.  We remember how much we hurt, how much the shine of baseball was tarnished by their early passing.  We remember and we grieve with the Adenhart family and our Angel fan brothers and sisters.

Playing Pepper 2009: Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

Posted on February 20, 2009 at 11:30 AM
As the players start getting themselves ready for another season, I thought it'd be a good idea to do the same.  I contacted a blogger for each major league team and posted them five questions.  This is the result.  You can find the tentative schedule of teams here and today's main post is right here.

The Angels have gone from one-time afterthoughts to easily the class of the AL West and a consistent October presence.  They've not made it completely over the hump since 2002 (and a lot of those players have moved east to St. Louis) but they still have a shot every fall.

Jim from our fellow Blogs By Fans blog The Halo Is Lit was kind enough to answer some questions about how the Angels could actually miss October and whether Vladimir Guerrero's best days are behind him.
