The ignorance by some of these sportswriters is truly fascinating. Since apparently admitting "I'm not sure" on camera doesn't bode well for these guys careers, they instead decide to just speak nonsense and hope something sticks.
The argument is who will win the ALDS. Here is the link:
It's Jeff Passan and Jose Mota on their respective sides. We know Mota is an Angels homer. Here are some rich comments by Passan.
"Not only are the (Sox) in the Angels' head, they are a better team than the Angels."
Never mind the fact the Angels won the season series and had a better overall record.
"They have better high end starting pitching."
Lackey and Weaver are maybe slightly below Beckett and Lester. But Kazmir blows away Buchholz (who?).
"I will take Lester, Beckett and Buckholz over anything the Angels can throw at me any day"
We have All-Star starters 4th in the rotation and coming out of the bullpen. Really?
"The (Sox) won 95 games in the best division in baseball."
Most of that division seemed to have a hard time against the West. The Orioles and Jays were also auto-wins. Is the east really the best? I don't think so.
"I don't understand what the Angels have that could be better than the Red Sox at this point."
Clearly this guy doesn't actually watch the Angels.
I really hope we prove these idiots wrong this year.
