1st place Halos


Recommended Posts

Going to be a very difficult year to get in the play-offs. 3, 4 teams battling for that second wild card spot. pretty much have to figure the Yankees or Red Sox have the first one. We should do well in May. already 3-0 to start.

Stay healthy my Halos!

Which teams are competing for the wild card spot on May 4th?

Astros, Mariners, Blue Jays?

Honestly, a sweep in Seattle would be big. I know we are just entering, but we have Richards (still waiting on him to start looking like himself), Skaggs, and Ohtani pitching out there. If we can put 3 more games between us and them, then the only team even close in the wild card would be the Blue Jays - who I doubt have staying power this year. So then we can really focus on doing everything we can to stay with the Astros, and a somewhat secure wild card spot becomes our fallback.

Imagine Ohtani no-hits the Mariners with Dipoto watching live, that would be the greatest gift since Mike Trout.

Twins season last year seemed like a fluke to me, maybe they will right the ship but they look like a mess right now. 

This, so much this.  I never got how the twins pulled off last year, felt like an anomaly.  
I actually thought they would be better this year, crazy game.

If we can get by that starting pitching of there's, they are showing they can be beat. By no means is the division out of reach.

I agree. The focus should be on winning the division. I don't want to play Boston or NY for a play in game. If we can figure out the 9th inning, we can afford to get 6 innings out of the starters while matching up the 7th and 8th with the rest of the BP.

Just get to the post-season this year, and then make necessary improvements for 2019 without hurting the farm too much.

Agreed, but the Angels’ chances of making the playoffs after adding at least one reliever and perhaps a starter would be much better and that’s going to cost.

They have been awful but every team goes through funks and that division is pure garbage...   They have plenty of time to get healthy playing stiffs...

man, carve this in stone. it's why it's tough to read several of the posts in this forum after a two or three game losing streak. we weren't as good as our 13-3 start, nor were we as bad as our 3-9 funk. 

ebb and flow, people. ebb and flow.

No, you don't understand - the Astros lost 3 out of 4 against the yankees, so they now suck and have no shot at the playoffs, cuz REAL playoff teams can play the Yankees.
