For those unaware, the Angels are having an amazing season. They are working exceptionally well together and are dominating nearly every team they face. Here are the top six reasons why this years World Series will be just another Halo victory!

  1. Take a look at the standings. The Angels have the best record in all of Major League Baseball with a .606 average. The rest of the AL West should kiss their post-season hopes goodbye since the Angels are 8.5 games up on Texas, 9 games on Oakland, and 22 games on Seattle.
  2. The Angels swept the Boston Red Sox at home in their recent weekend series. This was the first time the Angels have done so against the Red Sox’s at home since 1998. In their first game on Friday, the Angels creamed the Red Sox’s 11-3. Remember, the Red Sox’s won the World Series last year, but they are still no competition for the Angels.
  3. On Sunday, July 20, closing pitcher Francisco Rodriquez became the fastest pitcher to reach 40 saves in Major League History. Rodriquez has consistently provided the Angels with solid closing pitching for many years.
  4. The Angels’ starting pitchers are coming out fierce. Jose Arredondo is 4-0, John Lackey is 7-2 and Ervin Santana is 11-4 . No team can put out these pitcher’s fire.
  5. Three words, Big Daddy Vladdy. With 17 home runs, 53 batted in, 99 hits, and a slugging percentage of .493, Vladimir Guerrero is a force to be reckoned with.
  6. The Angels have solid hitting and fielding from all angles, including: Chone Figgins, Tori Hunter, Gary Matthews, Garret Anderson, Howie Kendrick, and Casey Kotchman.
