Does anybody else feel that the Angels are ready to get on a roll?


I know it might be a bit irrational considering the standings and the last series, but does anyone else feel like we're about to get rolling now?  Seven games back is definitely a lot at this point in the season, but now with Haren anchoring one of the strongest front fours in all of baseball and a hundred games of offensive/bullpen underachievement, it just feels like the tides are about to turn. 

Last year, virtually every offensive member overachieved and at one point, every regular was hitting .300.  This year, not a single player is sniffing .300 other than Torii (.292).  We've got Kendrick, Matsui, Wood, Abreu, and Rivera all at the low end of any conceivable pre-season projections, no offensive players exceeding expectations, a bullpen that has been among the league's worst all season long, and inconsistent starting pitching.  And yet, somehow, the team still has a winning record.

I realize it's possible that the offense keeps at its current pace and that the "law of averages" doesn't mean that everyone is all of a sudden going to go on hot streaks.  But with this front four in place, if the offense just lives up to expectations for the rest of the year, I like our chances to make up the ground with the team as it currently stands.  If we can perhaps make one more move before the deadline for another pitcher (bullpen or rotation), I think we're in a lot better shape than any other team that has this big of a deficit.
