    Why do the Angels own the Dodgers so hard?!?

    I was just curious as to why the Angels always own the Dodgers? Mike Scioscia is Dodger kryptonite. Dodger bats always go cold during these freeway series. It is severely depressing!

    The Angels are a better team. The best teams in the American League generally have better pitchers, in order to stave off the better batters in the league.

    Anything can happen in the World Series, though.

    It is an odd thing. Up here in the Bay Area, the A's totally own the Giants. Even with the A's trying to stay out of last, and the Giants close to first and a superior team this year, the A's still whip them like dogs in Arizona and in inter league matchups over the years.

    The Angels' style of play - taking extra bases, being aggressive on the basepaths is more of a National League style of play and so they match up well against NL teams.

    They played well against the Cubs. Then again, everyone plays well against the Cubs these days.

    I hate to say it but I think the Dodger losing streak will be at "10" by the end of the weekend. I hope this is a wake up call for Colletti and old McCourt.

    I think it's just the American League in general that owns the entire National League. Look at the Dodgers, they are 19-5 against the NL West, but could beat a decent AL team in a series to save their lives.

    Its all baseball karma really. Before Mike Scioscia became their manager the Dodgers would beat the Angels or at the very least be competitive against them every season. Then Mike came to Anahiem and the Baseball Gods decided to rip the Dodgers a new one for the way they treated him his last few seasons in Los Angeles.

    The coolest things about the Angels to me, as both an Angels fan and a Disney fan, is the fact that Walt Disney was on their Board of Directors back in the early days.

    Um, they were some of the best teams in the AL. Not just decent ones.
    Detroit: 1st place AL Central.
    Angels: 2nd place AL West.
    Yankees: 1st place AL East.
    Red Sox: 2nd place AL East.
