    The Angels may not have a choice in the matter, if those two pitchers the A’s got from the Cubs do what they’re capable of, that team (the A’s ) could win it all.

      I expect pitching to be the difference. The A’s pitchers were better even before the deal. But the Angels appear to be finally getting some reward for all the spending they have done.

    the angels offense is scary good. they have a great top three.

    the A’s are up a game, but it feels tied

    The Angels have had a good mid-summer run several years in a row. This year, the spring emphasis was on starting strong, so the club wouldn’t need a do-no-wrong six week stretch to even get into the conversation. Everything has gone well so far, but the Angels have also followed the big move each year with a stretch of .500 ball. Scioscia’s team has a good chance, but must maintain momentum because there is no reason to believe the bottom is going to drop out on the A’s.

    Dodgers and Giants certainly won’t be satisfied with a wild card.

      The second place team in the NL West might not even GET a wild card.
