Historic Angels Victory

Unlike Yankees fans, many Angels fans do not have to dust off some old yellowing history book to relive their team's great moments - our greatness is not locked in some vault, the Angels are achieving their greatest moments right before our very eyes!

Yesterday, the 2009 Angels became only the 2nd Angels team to surpass the 101 victory hurdle.

Angel Teams W-L leaders with playoff record added to regular season record:

2002: 110 - 68

2009: 102 - 68

2008: 101 - 65

2005: 99 - 73

1982: 95 - 72

1986: 95 - 74

2007: 94 - 71

2004: 92 - 73

Note: The 1979 ALCS champion Angels won 1 postseason game and lost 3, but their regular season record lags behind 3 Angels teams with better records - 1989, 2006, 1985 - that did not make the playoffs.
