Countdown to VS Cougars @ Foresthills
(Jun 10/12)

Posted Jun 9/12 - Top Angel's Prospect leaves team in a 2-1 win vs Padres.

As a top prospect for the Saint John Angels, outfielder Adam  might've gotten the call every minor leaguer wants this spring. Instead, he believed he had another, higher calling.

Adam announced Friday that he was leaving baseball to enter the priesthood, walking away after a breakout season in which he became MVP of the Saint John Softball Fall League.

"I was doing well at ball. But I really had to get down to the bottom of things," the 23-year-old  said. "I wasn't at peace with where I was at."

Posted Jun 8/12 - Angels make Blockbuster trade with struggling Ace.

The Saint John Angels have got rid of a huge contract and opened up some space today for some young prospects in the minors, sending long time ace and shortstop Dan Taylor to the Kings County Padres. Taylor who has been with the team from the start was 0-1 with a 5.26 era and a .123 batting average.

Reports say the Angels traded the hard throwing right hander for 4 baseballs. (new)

" Dan just needed a fresh start and a new go at a long baseball career" Said the Angels Skip. "There comes a time when you just know. Dan is a class act and we wish him the best."

The Angels face the Kings County Padres tonight, but Taylor will not be in the lineup. He will join the Padres for the rest of the season. The Padres lost long time Skip Steve Kingston and are looking for a provincial title.


Posted Jun 6/12 - Angel's Lick Brewers, while Green Hits 400ft Home run.

While no Angels went in this years MLB draft, they sure did make a name of themselves at home, beating the Brewers 13-3 to go 3-2 on the season.

This season, Matt Green sure has enjoyed the home cooking of Angel Stadium in Forest Hills

The Halos right-hander has not only pounded the ball this season, but has hit one of the longest home runs at forest hills sence Ryan Mitchell (one time Angel/Met) hit a 379ft home run in 2006.

"I just feel comfortable here," Green said. "The fans, the atmosphere, all the guys, being at home, being on my home plate. It feels good. I think that can all play into it." Green took his bat to the plate holding a bitter +5 on the temp scale.

He'll try and continue the streak on Friday when the Angels face the Padres. The last outing was not so good going 20-6 in a losing cause.

Marcel Rachon is expected to get the start on friday night.

"We won't overextend him, but we'll work off how he's feeling from inning to inning and go from there," said manager Chris Steele.

Posted Jun 4/12 - Angel's take a ass pounding from the Padres
20-6 was the score. That is all.   
Posted Jun 1/12 - Angels Coach already names game 1 playoff Starter

Good news, Angels Fans: Manager General Lee settled on his playoff rotation Thursday, naming Rob Brookins as his Game 1 starter in the Southern New Brunswick League

Never mind the remaining four months. Brookins is Genreal's guy.

Oh, yeah. The Angels have to get there, first. But enough about that technicality. Not when General has a longtime trusted ace to defend when asked, in a radio interview, who would be his Game 1 starter with his club seemingly lacking an ace.

General expanded on those sentiments in a wide-range, if tame, by his standards, rant:

"I said Rob Brookins because I know what I'm going to get. Nothing against my other four guys because that's the only one I known exactly what I'm going to get on that particular day. ... This kid has been pretty good in his career. He was not a first-round pick. His was not $100-million guy signed out of high school or college. He just worked his head off to put himself in a good position. This guy throws 84, 85, 86 making $100 million dollars. There has to be a reason. You make all that money with that crap he throws, he better be good.''

Quality crap, indeed. Brookins lost his only start in May, helping the Angels to a record 2 wins in the month. And he was a provincial hero for General  in 2006, of course, when they won it all with the Saint John Mets

So all the better General defend his guys. Rather than, you know, dabble in politics.
