Is it wrong to be so happy about this sweep? After all, it is only late-May still and the Angels remain 6.5 games out of the division. Plus, it came against the Mariners, a team that hasn't been in any good in years and, through no coincidence, a team that the Halos have dominated for most of the last decade.
Let me think about that... um, no. No it is not, but I did at least have to consider it.
This sweep could've come against anyone and it would've been something to get excited about, largely due to the fact that the Angels have given us so little to be excited about this season. Add to it that Albert Pujols went off in the series, that Mike Trout snapped out of his mini-slump, that the Angel bullpen suddenly looks lights out and that we went four whole days without anyone using the #FireScioscia hastag and I think that we'd all be just as excited about this four-game sweep even if it came against the last living members of the Seattle Pilots.
Now, let's just hope they can keep it up when the Yankees and Rangers roll into town.
Angels 4, Mariners 2
