If the Angels are going to avoid sweeping teams at all costs, I’d prefer they at least win the series.
When the Angels took on New York and Texas, I honestly wasn’t expecting a sweep from of the 2012 Halos (and I’m sure I speak for more than one person, here). The mere fact that they pulled off two wins against each of those teams was a little shocking, but hey, they ran into a hot ball club on a streak no one could break.
But they should finish what they’ve started.
The Angels have set themselves up to take yet another series against a team we should sweep every single time. But hey, what is Angels’ baseball without a curveball or sixteen?
With Mike Trout and Mark Trumbo swinging hot bats (welcome back to that, Trumbo), the Halos still have enough positive evergy to tough out the rest of the first half of the season.
Let’s begin by finishing off Seattle. It’s not that difficult…right? Right.
