Where oh were did our offense go. Where or where can it be?

Los Angeles is batting .242 with a league low 44 runs scored since September 1st. This isn't exactly the way you want to see the Angels playing as October gets closer and closer. The Angels do seem to have the AL West locked up baring a complete disaster. Texas would have to go 15-3 and the Angels 9-9 the rest of the way to force a tie in the standings.

However, the question has to be asked "Is this the offense the Angels will bring with them to the playoffs?" if it is, the Angels will be looking at a quick exit yet again unless the starting pitching and bullpen can throw up nothing but zeroes.

Manager Mike Scioscia isn't concerned. When he's got starters Juan Rivera (5 for last 43) and Mike Napoli (4 for last 50) in horrid slumps, zero home runs from Bobby Abreu (in last 20 games) and Kendry Morales (in last 15 games) along with Vlad Guerrero (3 HR in last 22) and Torii Hunter (4 HR in last 27) also struggling to reach the seats he should be.

Have some fun and vote for the best "Starting 9" in Angels history.
