ARTICLE UPDATED August 3rd @ 9AM.
The Angels are 6-4 against the A's this year, but lost the last 4 game series in Oakland. Both of these teams have spent time in the cellar this season, a place they currently share. As the 80s film once said: "There can be only one." Both of these teams made some moves at the trade deadline, with the A's snagging 3 prospects from the Dodgers who are now their #3, #11, and #16 top prospects.
The A's are coming off a 12-14 month while the Angels went 15-11 during the month of July. The A's were also just swept by the Indians in 3 games.
Biggest question(s): Who remains the cellar dweller?

Feel the Weave. Believe in the Weaver. I don't know, just win.

Nolasco makes his Halo debut.
OVERALL VERDICT: Angels may win the series, but these are two of the worst teams in the AL so it could go either way.
