Angels are 33 - 30 ... Here is who they have left:

Tough Teams:

DODGERS - 6 Games (3 down the street, 3 in Anaheim)
ROCKIES - 3 Games (3 here)
RANGERS - 17 Games (3 here, 4 there, 3 here, 3 here, 4 there)
YANKEES - 2 Games (2 there)
RED SOX - 6 Games (3 here, 3 there)
TIGERS - 3 Games (3 there)
BLUE JAYS - 3 Games (3 here)
TWINS - 3 Games (3 there)
RAYS - 6 Games (3 here, 3 there)

Easy Teams:

BREWERS - 3 Games (3 here)
CUBS - 3 Games (3 there)
ROYALS - 6 Games (3 here, 3 here)
WHITE SOX - 7 Games (4 there, 3 here)
ATHLETICS - 9 Games (3 there, 3 there, 3 here)
MARINERS - 10 Games (4 here, 3 there, 3 here)
ORIOLES - 6 Games (3 there, 3 here)
INDIANS - 6 Games (3 here, 3 there)

If we play at our current .524 winning percentage with every team but Texas and we go 11-6 against Texas, we end up with 87 wins. Is that enough? If you forgive the team its tough early season strength of schedule and bump up our .524 to .540 against the easy teams, adding the (admittedly hopeful) 11-6 head to head with Texas... well, voila, we are a 90 win team. Does that take the AL West?

What is your scenario?
