Angeles the team to see in LA?

With new ownership, the Cy Young award winner and the best record in baseball, the Dodgers seem to be the talk of the town. But what about that other LA team? The Angels seem somewhat to be flying under the radar, especially considering their tremendous recent success. With the signing of future Hall of Famer Albert Pujols and starting pitcher C.J. Wilson in the off-season came expectations for this club probably bigger than ever before in the franchise’s history. When they failed to immediately deliver, beginning the season with just a 6-14 record, the hype quickly dwindled.

But following their slow start, the Halos have gone 27-16, including an eight game win streak at the end of May. Lately they’ve been firing on all cylinders and have become one of the most exciting clubs to watch in the league. After his very slow start, keeping right around the Mendoza line in the month of April, Pujols is back to his normal, machine-like self. During a 19-game stretch in May he raised his average from .211 to .260, with six bombs and 19 RBIs. He has also drove in 33 runs in 29 games for the month. Having your $240 million player in the middle of the lineup swinging it like he should, as well as the team’s pitching staff doing its job from top to bottom, is certainly key factor to the team’s recent triumphs. However, the biggest contributor to their success: a 20 year old kid.

Since being called up in late April, Mike Trout is hitting .354 with six home runs and 15 stolen bases. No coincidence that since his callup, the Angels have just found ways to win. The leadoff man and defensive captain in center field has not missed a start since being placed on the roster. Many “lifers” who have been around the sport for a long time see Trout run and say he could be the fastest down the line baseball has ever seen. His tremendous speed makes him a nightmare for defenses when he gets on base. His outstanding play has made him the leading candidate (by far) for AL Rookie of the year and even brought about some discussion of the MVP award for the 20 year old. Sparked by Trout’s incredible skills, aggression and enthusiasm for the game, the Angels have become the team to see in Los Angeles.
