How can you tell the Angels are finding their stride this year? Because there is a Mariners fan somewhere on the Sabr-side of the blogosphere who has declared the Angels the luckiest team in the league with numbers hinted at (but not actually shown) that demonstrate it definitively. In this month's addition, Matthew Carruth quotes this years chosen statistic - Baseruns - to highlight why the Angels are rubbish and why it's different from other years, since this year the usual excuses of baserunning excellence and a fine bull-pen don't apply. According to this mystical metric, the Angels should be sitting at 29-37 and heading for a record of 72 wins Good luck with that Matthew and have fun with your Mariners this year - I'm sure they'll give you plenty of joy.
