For once, I will set aside my rose colored glasses and play the role of Negative Nancy. With the Angels currently up 4.5 games in the American League West, it would appear that their chances of making the playoffs are extremely good. However, the Texas Rangers simply refuse to go away. They’ve swept two double headers in the last week! What a tremendous accomplishment for a team missing two of their three best players. Meanwhile, the Boston Red Sox maintain a 2 game lead over those Rangers for the Wild Card.

Two of these three teams – the Angels, Rangers and Red Sox will make the postseason.

So, what would hurt Angel fans worse? Losing the division to the Rangers, the wild card to the Sox and missing the playoffs altogether? Or, facing those Red Sox in the first round of the playoffs for the third consecutive year, only to lose to Boston yet again?
