Dare to hope. A look at remaining schedules.

The Angels have 30 games left against teams worse than us. We have 22 against teams with a better record. We currently have 54 wins. If we go 20-10 against the lousy teams, and 11-11 against the good teams, we will finish with only 85 wins. But a sweep or two of the lousy teams, and an extra win or two of the better teams could put us at 89 to 90 wins.

Texas, on the other hand, has a stretch of 20 games with no days off in August that includes 3 against BOS, 3 against TB, and 4 against MIN. Then, they have to finish the season with a 16 game stretch also with no days off. That includes 3 more against MIN and NY, and 7 against LAA. Meanwhile, the Angels will enjoy 4 days off at home in the cool breezes of Southern California between now and the end of the season.

It will not be easy to catch Texas. Admittedly, we almost have to bank on them choking as much as us winning. However, at least from the standpoint of the remaining schedules, it looks like the Angels may be set up for an epic comeback. I am daring to hope that they can do it. We just need the fire that has seemed to dwindle all season to finally flare up.
