Believe it or not, the Angels now have the best record in baseball. How/when did that happen? :?:

Ah, sorry. I guess I saw they had more wins and ran with it. :D:

Still, the Angels have certainly been "flying under the radar."

NYY picked up 4 games in a week :?:


reality is Crisp, Lugo and JD Drew are starting to kill Boston (especially Drew)

If the Twins drop back look for Boston to go all out for Tori Hunter

[1/2 teal] That's because they're playing the Sox. [/ 1/2 teal] :whiner:

Isn't baseball a wonderful game? Every 24 hours, the (baseball) world turns over on someone who was on top of it.

If it's not Boston or New York than it's not worth talking about.

New York Mets. Especially when Pedro comes back.

Pedro is still out until August.

Angels. They've been on a roll lately, and they're getting healthier. Look out for this team.

IIRC, I think they've only been on national TV once this season up to this point (I remember a Red Sox/Angels game that was on Fox earlier in the season).

I agree. I like their balance of young talent and veteran leadership. And they can pretty much play in cruise control for the better part of the season because just about every other team in the NL sucks.

As of today, I'd have to say the Red Sox with Schilling and Beckett stabilizing the rotation, and Papelbon and Okajima finishing out games. The rest of their pitching isn't too bad either, and their offense is 3rd in baseball in runs scored.

I'd probably put the Angels right behind them. They still need one big bat behind Vlad - though Kotchman has played well - and Ervin Santana to learn how to pitch on the road.

You have to like the Tigers offense, but their pitching just doesn't impress me sans Bonderman and Verlander. Ditto for the Mets. Great offense, but their starting pitching just isn't good enough.

While maybe they aren't the best team in baseball, how about some love for the Padres? Their team ERA is 2.88! They have 7 pitchers this season who have thrown at least 15 innings and have ERAs under 2, including Peavy and Linebrink. And that doesn't include Chris Young and Trevor Hoffman, both of whom are in the lower 2's (2.19 and 2.35 respectively). They are phenomenal at finding good relievers. Maddux has pitched well. Germano stepped in and pitched well with Hensley down. Wells has struggled, but they could always go back to Hensley now that he's ready to return.

Of course, their offense is a completely different story, sans Adrian Gonzalez, who has been great this season. But Brian Giles, when he returns, will still give them a ton of walks and get on base a lot. Cameron has turned things around after an abysmal April. Ditto for Kouzmanoff, who struggled in April but has adjusted. Marcus Giles and Jose Cruz provide some offense, and the streaky Khalil Greene has 26 extra base hits. Their offense isn't going to be great, but if they can add another power bat, with their starting pitching and bullpen, they could be a threat.
