2014 MLB Shutout Survivor Results: Angels Are The Winner This Year

The Angels are holding their own in the AL West, and have watched as other teams in the Division have suffered massive pitching injuries.  This team should be in the hunt all year for the playoffs.  Mike Scioscia can also be thankful his team is playing better too.  In 2012 and 2013, the club struggled mightily in the 1st 6 - 7 weeks into the year. It cost them a playoff spot in 2012, even with a late charge, and last year was a losing season, which is a rarity in the Scioscia era.

The Angels have been flashing lumber all year.  Despite me railing on them last week, it is also a respect factor for them having not being Shutout at that point.

On Friday night, the Rays finally bageled the Halo’s, with a 3 – 0 loss to Chris Archer and the Bullpen of Tampa Bay.  LA returned a blanking to the Rays on Saturday.

The team only managed 4 hits in the game.  Nevertheless, the lasted more 5 more games this year than the Colorado Rockies.

Los Angeles is in 2nd place in the AL West, and are looking to get Josh Hamilton back shortly.

I am still not relinquishing my request not to have Raul Ibanez hit 4th in the lineup.  I wouldn’t play him as a starter to begin with, and leave the guy to Pinch Hit duty late in games. Read the rest of this entry
