Angels once again the 'luckiest' team in baseball

I'm sure we all remember last year's articles on the Halos amazing ability to defy statistical analysis and post a record far in excess of their 'true' talent level. We've had a few discussions just this year on the ways this is claimed to be the case, but until recently we'd actually been outmatched in terms of luck by teams like the Houston Astros and San Francisco Giants according to the number crunchers. Well, no more. Having just glanced at Baseball Prospectus' hilarious 'adjusted' standings we are once again tops in the majors with 8.1 wins over where we should be if there were any sabermetrics justice in the universe. So give yourselves a pat on the back, Halos, because apparently, you haven't earned it.
