    Halos Heaven: Ty Buttrey Talk Part Two

    Ty is an interviewer's dream. Thoughtful, responsive, gives full answers and will answer anything. As a result, we hit some topics that go beyond the surface and the interviews run a little longer than usual.

    Here is part two of the phone call we had on July 12th. If you missed part one, click on this link. And if you want to follow him on Instagram, follow this link.

    Getting back to how pitcher roles are evolving. The Angels are using an opener quite a bit.

    Halos Heaven: Series Preview: Angels @ Mariners (Sweep redux?)

    MLB

    First, a shameless plus. If you haven't checked it out lately, the Angels 40 man roster map has been updated.

    So the Mariners are still looking for their first win since the All Star Break and will try to stop their 6 game skid. In fact, Dipoto's team has only won 2 of the 11 game they have played so far in July. This bodes well, but don't expect their losing streak to last forever. Maybe just 3 more games??

    Mariners- who's hot (last 7 days):

    No one worth noting.

    Halos Heaven: Matt Harvey designated for assignment

    In the end, it was somewhat of a valiant effort. It didn't matter.

    The day after allowing 6 runs in 6 innings, Matt Harvey is gone.

    He will not reach any of his incentives. He compiled a 7.09 ERA and 1.54 WHIP and was somehow allowed to pitch 59.2 innings for this Angels team.

    It's worth noting that the Angels were 6-6 in games started by Matt Harvey, so he didn't have the severe detrimental effect most fans thought.

    (Yes, I know this is a fallacy, but I'm choosing to point it out anyway.

    ESPN.com: Angels designate RHP Harvey for assignment

    SEATTLE -- The Los Angeles Angels have given up on their $11 million investment in Matt Harvey, designating the 30-year-old right-hander for assignment on Friday.

    Harvey was 3-5 with a 7.09 ERA in 12 starts. He gave up six runs, seven hits and five walks over six innings in a 6-2 loss to the Houston Astros on Thursday night.

    "The decision was made because we felt like it would increase our chance of winning games," Angels manager Brad Ausmus said after discussing the move with general manager Billy Eppler. "Matt was a very well-liked teammate, a guy that everyone pulled for, including myself.

    Halos Heaven: Angels snap the Mariners losing streak by not winning

    MLB

    Score? Angels lost. To the Mariners. Yeah. I said the Mariners.

    No one on the staff wanted to do the post game today, so here is this adorable Shohei Ohtani video instead.

    We successfully jacked up Leake's trade value.

    Matt Harvey clearly jinxed the team on the way out.

    Halos Heaven: Albert Pujols, Angels leader, proves he's still who he always was in Marisnick chirping

    This isn't an article about the deficiencies of Albert Pujols. This isn't an article about the career of Albert Pujols. There are plenty of those. This is an article about the player he is now, and what that means to the Los Angeles Angels.

    Tuesday night, I watched an adaptation of Henrik Ibsen's Rosmersholm. Throughout the play, I repeatedly saw the connection to the Angels. The White Horse, a symbol frequently mentioned. Traces of death. Confusion, not knowing where to turn or what to believe. Most important, no conviction.

    Conviction is a word that largely has positive connotations, even though it essentially means the same thing as stubbornness.

    Halos Heaven: Ty Buttrey Talks 2019 Angels

    Ty Buttrey has been a friend of Halos Heaven since being traded to the Angels last year. He did this interview before even debuting with the team. He also logged in and did a live chat with us over the off season.

    And on what would later become one of the most memorable days in Angels history, Ty called me last Friday (July 12th) to catch up on all things Angels. Always personable, always generous with his time and insights, he shied away from no question. But out of respect for the obvious emotion he felt, the bond within the team, we kept the passing of Tyler Skaggs to one question.

    Halos Heaven: MoonLinks: Houston, This Ain't A Problem

    In the grand scheme of things, the Angels are just a couple of weeks away from near-full strength. Noe Ramirez will be back from suspension, Keynan Middleton and JC Ramirez are due back at the end of the month. Jonathan Lucroy will be back shortly thereafter. That just leaves Tommy LaStella and some dude who used to play third base. on the IL. You gotta be feeling pretty good, right?

    Matt Harvey IS back, and to the full Matt Harvey strength with which we are familiar.

    Fansided: Burlington Bees playing well with long-time California Angels star Jack Howell leading the charge

    Jack Howell has made the transition from California Angels and later playing for the Anaheim Angels to now be a minor league manager for the LA Angels Single-A affiliate Burlington Bees. For Howell, a long-time Angel player from 1985-1991 and then again from 1996-1997, he has come full circle and is now trying to pass on this passion for the game he played professionally for 15 years. The Bees seemed to be listening to their manager as they have now won seven of their last 10 games,including Wednesday night's hard-fought 3-2 victory over their hosts, the Lansing Lugnuts.

    The Burlington Bees formula for success is good pitching and strong defense and that has definitely been on display during the team's recent hot streak.

    ESPN.com: Angels reliever Ramirez suspended 3 games

    Major League Baseball has suspended Los Angeles Angels reliever Noe Ramirez for three games and fined him an undisclosed amount for throwing a pitch Tuesday near the head of Astros center fielder Jake Marisnick.

    Angels manager Brad Ausmus was hit with a one-game suspension and an undisclosed fine Wednesday stemming from the sixth-inning incident, in which Ramirez drilled Marisnick between the shoulder blades with a 1-1 pitch.

    Players nearly came to blows moments later, and after the game Astros manager A.J. Hinch vaguely hinted at the possibility of retaliation if Ramirez weren't punished by the league.

    Halos Heaven: The Dark Knight is still a great movie today. Matt Harvey is not a great pitcher today.

    Alex Bregman hit a home run. An young Astros fan caught it. He threw it back.

    Angels fans were equally as confused as the young Houston fan was when Matt Harvey trotted out to the mound. Last start against the Seattle Mariners, Harvey pitched shakily but ultimately allowed zero runs. The same didn't happen against a good offense.

    Harvey gave up six runs in six innings, walked five, struck out one, and actually got bailed out from some good defense to prevent him from further damage. The seven hits he gave up meant that he finished with a 2.

    Halos Heaven: Angels offense has been surging, pitching not so much

    You probably have noticed the Angels offense has been one of the best in baseball this season - and especially as of late. Or am I the only one who noticed that?

    Since June 1st, the Angels are 23-17. If you want to break it down a different way, 11 of those wins were against sub .500 teams and 12 of them were against .500+ teams. The Angels dominated sub .500 teams to the tune of an 11-3 record, which sadly put them at 12-14 against the .500+ teams. Still, their offense has been shining - it's the pitching that is holding them back.
