By Adam Dodge, Senior Writer - 

After a disappointing conclusion to an otherwise great series in Washington, the Angels head to the Big Apple where they will play a weekend series against the 2003 American League All Star Team.  

New York's collection of old bastards is off to a 12-9 start - good enough for first place in the AL East, but don't be fooled, these guys are a bigger threat at the Bridge table than on the diamond. This is an old, station to station team with limited range on defense. 

Things have changed some in the Yankee dugout. The Gatorade has been replaced by a concoction of 3 parts Ensure/2 parts Metamucil. The sunflower seeds are sodium free and the steps have been replaced by an escalator.

Derek Jeter will don the pinstripes and number 2 for a final season. Unfortunately, there are roughly six million hairy, fat guys and their obnoxious broads who will continue to pay homage to the greatest herpes spreader of all time well into baseball's next era. I'd be a little more excited about The Captain's swan song if Pauly & Polly would stop showing up to Angels Stadium with their glittery signs and massive jaws.

CC Sabathia had gastric bypass surgery in the off-season. Twice. Freak.

The Yanks can pitch a little bit, but the Angels have always performed well in New York under Mike Scioscia. Look for Albert Pujols to continue his power surge and for Mike Trout to catch fire once again. The biggest difference maker and the reason the Angels will sweep the Yankees on the road will be Raul Ibanez, who has a career .936 OPS at the New Yankees Stadium, and has historically heated up toward the end of April.

Prediction: Halos sweep
Love to hear what you think!
