We are happy winning division titles and that is it. Maybe the Angels will continue winning division titles in a four team American West and get bounced in the first round of the Playoffs. We have so many fans here who are myopic. Thinking we are fine and we will win with what we got. What we have is an awful bullpen and erratic starters. Having Halladay with Lackey would of gave us a strong chance to beat Boston or Ny, that is if we make the play offs. Texas can still win this division. The Angels have a brutal road trip in September- NY, Boston and Texas.
1. Our team is not as strong as last years team.
Pitching last year was a lot stronger especially the bullpen.
2. As one fan stated here on this site, would you feel safe with a one run lead in Boston in the 8th inning? NO
3. Pitching usually wins a 5 game play off series.
Halladay, Lackey, Weaver- that would be three darn good pitchers in a 5 game series.
Finally, we have too many infielders, why not move one for pitching?
Ayber, Izturis, Kendrick, Wood, Figgins,
