AL West...we are laid back out here.

Seems no one wants to win the AL West. The two leaders keep taking turns being the pivot man in a circle jerk. Currently the LA/Cali/Anaheim/Orange County Angels are in first by two games. Their current 2 win streak(oh boy!) makes them 6-4 in their last ten. The sorry ass A's are even with a 5-5 record but have lost the last two..my brillant deductive reasoning tells me they could still take over first depending on strength of schedule..after all its only 16 days 9 hours 23 minutes and 22 seconds till the playoffs begin.

The A's play the Angels for a 4 game series at the end of the season. This could be a pivotal series if the division leader has a slim lead of oh say...two games. The Angels have a fairly easy schedule getting Tampa and Texas. The A's get Minny and Texas.

I think the Angels have the better team but this division could go down to the wire..which makes it interesting..we won't go into the Angels notorious habit of taking it in the bum and squandering any and all leads at the end of the season..its legendary. The A's have been up and down more than a hooker on a busy night this whole year. I ain't calling this one..we gotta wait and see :)

I'm going to have to root not for the Angels because I hate what they did to their name. A team with a name like that needs to lose.
