Have the Angels re-gained their identity?


Last year was a disaster, and a lot of it had to do with a lack of team identity.  No longer going first to third and stealing a ton of bases, the team looked for "batters box offense."  Shortening the game with a dominant bullpen was not an option.  And defensively, well we all remember balls bouncing around Rivera and Abreu and through Wood..

Over the last six months, the Angels seem to have taken steps to get back to Sosh's brand of baseball and the club is starting to look like those of the past: an athletic left fielder, switch hitting third baseman, no full time DH, etc.  Add in a great 8th inning guy and the closer position viewed as dicey and we might as well be talking 2004.

Pitching, defense, guys who can go first to third.  These are the hallmarks of the Angels for the past 10 years.  To me, the club has gone back to its roots.  Are you seeing it?
