Start spreading the news....

The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim finally vanquished their nemesis, the Boston Red Sox in a dramatic three game sweep and will now head to the American League Championship Series for the first time since 2005 to face the New York Yankees.

Other than winning the 2002 World Series beating the Boston Red Sox in the fashion the Angels did ranks up there with the greatest moments in franchise history.

So to the so called experts at ESPN who almost unanimously picked Boston (save former Angel Eduardo Perez).

To TBS for hiring Boston's play by play man Don Orsillo.

To Dave Henderson and the Red Sox organization for trying to get in one more dig in at the late Donnie Moore.

For all the drunken Red Sox fans who started fights in the seats at Angel Stadium this season.

To Buster Onley who said the Angels can't hit a fastball.

And to the grounds crew at Fenway Park who made Dustin Pedroia cry.

We here at Angelswin.com would like to wish you bon appetit while eating your plate of crow.

To recap. The Angels sweep the Boston Red Sox out of the playoffs.

Game 1- Angels win 5-0 behind an outstanding performance from John Lackey and a clutch 3-run Home Run from Torii Hunter.

Game 2 - Angels win 4-1 with Jered Weaver picking up where Lackey left off. Key hits from Maicer Izturis and Erick Aybar give the Angels all the offense they needed.

Game 3 - Angels win 7-6 with an ending just as shocking as game 5 in the 1986 ALCS. The Halos rock Boston's closer Jonathan Papelbon by scoring 3 runs in the 9th inning after two outs. Bobby Abreu and Vladimir Guerrero deliver huge hits and Brian Fuentes pitches a 1,2,3 ninth inning for the save as the Angels advance to the 2009 ALCS.
Jose Salviati blogs that "The Curse is Lifted" on the LA Times website about just how similar the 1986 and 2009 finished.

Angelswin.com member Lieutenant Colonel Michael Turner was interviewed by the LA Times Bill Shaikin. Michael is currently serving in Afghanistan and their is "no camouflaging his loyalty to the Angels."
