What in the world is going on with the Angels?
While they lost John Lackey and Chone Figgins in the off-season, one could still expect the funadmentally sound, well managed Halos to continue to be a factor in the AL West.
Well, coming off getting swept by the Red Sox, the Angels are just 12-18 with a run differential of -48. They've lost 7 in a row.
So, is it over?
No. They are just 3 1/2 games out of first place and when you are chasing the Rangers and the Athletics I don't think you hit the panic button just yet. But I am stunned at how lousy the Angels look.
Even worse the Mariners, my pick to win the mild, mild West. Seattle is working on a 6-game losing streak and are just 11-17. Still, they too are just 3 1/2 games out but if they don't start hitting the ball it could be a long summer in the Emerald City.
Tonight one of those losing streaks will end since the Angels visit the M's this weekend.
