Saw this on ESPN.com's Buster Olney blog today.
He broke down the strength of schedule for the reminder of the year for the main 9 "contenders" in the American League.
I'm not sure if this means anything tangible or not, but... Of the nine teams he mentioned, the Angels have the toughest schedule, including a very difficult 22 game stretch. Of course the Red Sox and Yankees have the easiest two schedules.
Los Angeles Angels
Home games: 39 of 74
Games against teams .500 or better: 43
Biggest hurdle: From July 20 to Aug. 12, the Angels will see nothing but contenders -- 22 straight games against Minnesota, Oakland, Detroit, Seattle and Boston.
Big Finish: Six road games, with three in Texas and three in Oakland.
