How in the world have the Angels managed to lose about 3 games in the standings after having an absolutely fantastic month of June? Oh that's right, because we compete against the Texas Rangers. Makes sense. Well if it's any consolation the Angels still lead the wildcard, which it shouldn't be because that does not guarantee them a playoff spot even if they do win it.
I need to see the Angels take the division and secure a for sure spot in the playoffs.
The Angels can keep their winning rolling through the entire month of July with this series, and I mean ENTIRE month of July. I want to see a July that is had without losing a single game.
Ok, well maybe one game will be acceptable, but that's where I draw the line. This is pretty much the only way the Angels will ever catch up to the infinitely hot, always-coming-from-behind-and-never-giving-up-a-lead Texas Rangers.
Good thing Weaver is on the mound against the true Mr. Overrated Ubaldo Jimenez.
You can go ahead and put this W in your pocket.
