I assume many of us have been ecstatic with our recent success. We've mostly been pounding the ball against our most recent opponents: Padres, Giants, Dodgers, Rockies, and so far so good with the D-Backs.
But the Angels have done this before. We are incredibly good when it comes to inter-league play (9-3 this season I believe). Right now we are tied with Texas, who sneaked past the M's and our beloved Halos earlier this season. Even though we had a rough beginning, we're still holding our own in the AL West, through injuries, bullpen troubles, and offensive slumps.
Pretty soon, we're going to be done with inter-league Play. I don't want to sound like a nay-sayer in light of a great victory, but when we go back to playing teams from the AL, can we safely say that we are now an improved team? Once we no longer face the NL, will our weaknesses from earlier this season flare up once again? I hope they won't.
Anyway, just a curious question: How do you guys think we should translate this success? What should we take from these series against the NL, if anything at all?
As inter-league play comes to a close, what do you think our recent series have shown us about our Angels?
