All Signs Point to Red October

Hey everyone,

At first glance, your reaction to my fanpost would be... "duhhhh".  However, I am not posting to talk about the Angels being the best team in baseball.. and they are.  I writing to talk about recent events that will help the Angels be successful in the World Series.

  1. Theo Epstein actually made a horrible move.  The Redsox are a team which is about NOW!  In fact, most teams with above average budgets are about now (even the Angels joined these ranks lately by landing Tex). Losing Manny in the 1-2 punch has the Redsox looking a lot less scary.  We are one of the only teams in baseball with a solid rotation.
  2. Yankees - Just can't stay healthy and probably will miss the playoffs.  Joba the most recent casualty, has left the Yanks in shambles on the mound.  Mike Mussina is very long in the tooth and will probably fade a bit down the stretch.
  3. Rays - The injury bug has also hit them pretty hard.  Longoria was mentioned earlier, but the real concern for the Rays is young pitching fading down the stretch and Carl Crawford's injury (could be season ending).
  4. Whitesox - Who is there big stopper who can come in and win a game for them in the playoffs.  We have Lackey and Saunders for that, but who do they have?

I am totally geeked about this season and can't wait to get to the Big A for Red October.
