Angels within four games of .500 all time


Smedley

Recommended Posts

What may surprise you are the all-time series against several of the teams.

 

We're way behind NYY, Oak, Bal, Bos.

We're slightly behind: Det, StL, SD, SF

We're way ahead of Sea, LAD, Cle, Min, Col, Ari., TB, Mil

We're slightly ahead of: KC, Tor, ChW, Tex, Hou, Cin,

We're tied with: Atl, ChC,

 

The top four are up on us by 50 or more games apiece. We don't own anybody like that, so we lead a lot more series than we trail to bring us close to even.

This is correct. I'm not close to my AARP card yet.

 

You obviously didn't live through the 70's (at least before 78, when we were competitive) or a good part of the 80's.....

Well, I have mine (though I'm not retired, yet).....You really didn't miss much in most of those years....It's been a lot more fun since 2002....

Apparently you guys think the manager is the reason the angels win or lose when in reality they probably only win/lose a few games in a season.

The GM and owner is who is responsible for building a winning team.

Imagine if we didn't screw up the last 4 seasons worth of baseball...

perception is everything.  

 

 

 

During the 2010-2013 stretch of games, the team is 18 games over .500.  

 

it's the second largest number of games over .500 the team has had in a 4 year stretch excluding other MS coached seasons.   

 

From 84-87, the team was 28 games over .500

That just shows how truly bad we were from the 1980s-1999. All those amazing 2000s years had to make up for 20+ years of suckiness.

40 years actually. Oh those terrible 60's and 70's. 

 

61-79 = .477 W-L %

80-99 = .484   "

 

Although, in the 60's and 70's we did have the likes of Chance, Fregosi, Ryan, Tanana, and Grich to help ease the pain.

Quite a few:

Braves

Red Sox

Cubs

White Sox

Reds

Indians

Tigers

Dodgers

Yankees

Pirates

Giants

Cardinals

 

So looking at that list, should the Angels get over .500 they will be the only expansion team over .500.  Not too shabby...  It's actually kind of impressive given how much harder the initial expansion teams had it compared to the teams that came after.

Free agency in the mid 70's made all the difference for the later expansion teams...it was brutal for the Angels, maybe the Astros were competitive a little quicker in the 60's because they had a good farm system---Joe Morgan, Lee May, Jimmy Wynn, etc....
