Hidden: Statistics Don't Win Ballgames: The Angels' performance on the field is a great example of why statistics don't win ballgames and why the Angels may take it all again this year.

Health is really their only obsticle. Hopefully, Casey Kotchman is moved to the east.

I still have to go with my White Sox. Hopefully they will be even more consistent in the second half.

You may be right, Vol, and you have the stats on your side, but the Angels seem to always find a way to win (except in the Mariners series just befor the All Star break). And, I think Mike Scioscia is one of the best, if not THE best, managers in baseball.

(reg info for link: username: bugmenot - password: 123456) While it's true that the LAAoAOCAngels have a knack for winning games, it seems a bit premature, IMO, to say they even have their division wrapped up. Oakland seems primed, ready, and willing to beat the everlovingshitoutofmyRangers, for their traditional 2nd half of the season run. Texas, with a couple of key moves, could easily remain in contention as well. So keep the rally monkey at bay, for the moment, at least.
