Another victim of the foolish head-first slide. April and May seem like a make-or-break time for these underachieving Angels. Hamilton was starting out hot, too.

Trying to figure out if Rangers fans are experiencing slidenfreude.

Well, I'd say he caught a $125m break a year ago, but I guess it's relative.
