All Time Angels (letter) W Team

Let’s assemble the best possible Angels team by letter of the alphabet to begin a player’s last name. Today is W. 68 men whose last name started with “W” played major league baseball in an Angels uniform.

C – Matt Walbeck
1B – Jared Walsh
2B – Rob Wilfong
3B – Taylor Ward
SS – Tyler Wade

OF – Leon Wagner
OF – Dave Winfield
OF – Devon White

DH – Claudell Washington

Ward played some 3B which allowed us to slip in Devon White, so the gloves are out there. But so is last year’s Walsh/Ward/Wade but at least it is not the 22 OPS+ of Brandon Wood!

SP – Jered Weaver
SP – Jarrod Washburn
SP – Mike Witt

RP – Jordan Walden
RP – Ben Weber

It is no pleasure leaving Clyde Wright off this list but the numbers do not lie. It IS a pleasure, though, leaving CJ Wilson and his 96 ERA+ off this team for sure. Mike Witt did pitch out of the pen 42 times as an Angel, most memorably in a combined no-hitter with Mark Langston, but Walden and Weber surpass him here, as they do over Hall-of-Famer Hoyt Wilhelm, the earliest-born Angel (July 26, 1922) in team history for what its worth!

Clyde Wright had 77 relief appearances for the Angels. He could be used to replace Weber or Walden.

I thought we would end up with both Weaver brothers here, so I am pleasantly surprised.

Let’s have Witt come out of the Pen just like the combined no hitter he closed out in 1990 then Skeeter can join the rotation . Cuz Ben Weber sucks

Yes, surprisingly good. Normally one would think W would not be that strong a letter, but the outfield for instance of Wagner, Winfield and Devo is perhaps the strongest one we’ve seen.
