A tale of three seasons


In Phase I (April 6-June 11), the Angels had a mediocre offense and bad pitching. In Phase II (June 12-August 20), the Angels had an unstoppable offense and terrible pitching. In Phase III (August 21-now), the Angels offense has reverted to mediocre, but the pitching staff has gone nuts. Examine.

Game #s    W    L    PCT   XWL   RS/G   RA/G
1-59      29   29   .500  .463   4.66   5.02
60-119    44   18   .721  .613   6.66   5.29
120-138    9    9   .500  .631   4.50   3.44
Imagine if the Angels could put both the pitching and the hitting together for the stretch run: their expected win-loss record would be 19-5! A 102-win season isn't likely, but as it stands, the Angels could go .500 the rest of the way and still finish a strong 95-67. Their luck lately has been really tough, and saberheads will say Pythagoras is finally sneaking up on them, but it looks like overall, the Angels have already got the best of the old Greek again this year. Here's hoping their disastrous luck in the playoffs (an improbable 1-10 record in their last 11 postseason games) finally evens out in 2009.
