After winning 89 games in 2012, it's likely that the Angels believed the signing of free-agent slugger Josh Hamilton, combined with a resurgent year from Albert Pujols and perhaps an even better campaign from phenom Mike Trout, would vault them to a 90-plus win season, leaving them in position to take home the second championship in franchise history. Unfortunately, that didn't happen. Hamilton's struggles continued from the second half of 2012, Pujols' season was cut short by plantar fasciitis, and Trout, well, he was fantastic, but it simply wasn't enough, as injuries and ineffectiveness resulted in the Halos posting a 78-84 record last season. How bad was it? Angels' players spent more than 1000 days on the disabled list combined in 2013, and the team sunk under the weight of failed acquisitions on both sides of the ball, as the Angels finished 2013 in the bottom ten of both starter and bullpen ERA.
