Easter is a time to celebrate a miracle (or at least I think it is, I didn't ever go to Sunday School) and a miracle is exactly what the Angels need to do something to salvage this series. Losing the first three games to the hated BoSox is bad enough, but getting swept in four games at home will absolutely obliterate all the positive vibes the team had after winning a road series in Texas.
When I talk about a miracle, I don't necessarily mean just beating the Red Sox, but rather doing something to shake this team out of a general funk. The already weak bats have gone completely silent and the excellent defense they played to start the season has just totally abandoned them. Trying to overcome those two struggles and the mental block they have against Boston will be no small task, especially with Matt Palmer on the bump during a day game where the ball will be carrying well. This could get very bad in a hurry.
