Why, it's your Los Angeles Angels of Steinbrenner's Nightmares.
90-72 Red Sox
84-78 White Sox
82-80 Blue Jays
What's more, we've been totally consistent when comparing this year's first 51 games (.608 winning percentage) to last year's final 111 (.604). In other words, we've been playing consistent .600 baseball for a year now. No other AL team can come close (the Tigers are .592 this year, .531 last); and the only other team in the bigs with a better last 162 games is the Mets, with 99 wins to our 98.
So basically, ever since Mike Napoli became the #1 catcher, and (give or take a few starts) Jered Weaver made the rotation, we've been a .600 team. With a bunch of young guys learning how to be big-leaguers.
