The Angels magic number has fallen to four as they start a weekend series with the Oakland Athletics. Los Angeles can clinch their third consecutive AL West division championship as soon as Saturday.

Personally, I wouldn't mind if the Angels waited until Monday so they could tell the Rangers Ian Kinsler to "Get the (heck) off our field!" while the Angels celebrate their elimination.

Bill Shaikin writes that the Angels post-season hopes are going to hinge on the right arms of Kevin Jepsen and Jason Bulger. takes a look at the Angels roster and how the organization has built winning teams powered by homegrown talent.

It's possible that catcher Bobby Wilson could make the Halos post-season roster. He says he is up to the challenge. With the offensive and defensive slump Mike Napoli has been in, it's certainly possible Jeff Mathis will be getting the bulk of the post-season starts behind the plate. This also means Mike Scioscia may need to pinch hit for the light hitting catcher.

Howie Kendrick says he's "having fun again". His stats would back that up. The "Other Howard" has been on a tear since he returned from AAA.

Kendry Morales appears to have busted out of his September slump.

I appreciate OC Register columnist Randy Youngman's confidence in the Angels. He says we should expect to see the Yankees visit again soon.
