Yes, the Yankees may be the hottest team in the American League over the last week, but if you look at the way things have gone over the last month or so, the most dominant and most consistent team has been the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.
After dealing with some injury woes in April, the Angels have rebounded quite nicely, posting a 24-9 mark since May 9. Vladimir Guerrero carried the team in that first month and his contributions were significant again in Wednesday's 6-3 win over Cincinnati.
But it's been more than Guerrero that has the Angels dominating the AL West. Unexpected contributors like Orlando Cabrera, Mike Napoli, Casey Kotchman (he's batting .417 since May 9) and the return to form of sparkplug Chone Figgins have jolted the Angels' offense big-time. Throw in some very strong starting pitching led by John Lackey and mistake-free work from the bullpen, and the huge success isn't all that surprising.
