Los Angeles Angels
The Angels beat Toronto on Wednesday evening and will play one more north of the border before crossing back down into the states and into the big city.
The Angels are still over .500 but they aren’t gaining any ground on the Astros after Houston bypassed them in late April. In fact, since their hot start, the Angels are just 13–17 in their last 30 games.
While Mike Trout and Shohei Otani have been two of the best players in baseball so far, Ian Kinsler and Albert Pujols are absolutely killing this lineup.
Kole Calhoun has been even worse. I’ve been looking at him differently because while Kinsler and Pujols just seem to be over the hill, Calhoun isn’t — or shouldn’t.
But the sample grows ever larger and he’s hitting .197 with a .201 OBP in nearly 150 at-bats. At some point, Mike Scioscia may have to make a change.
New York Yankees
The Yankees are sporting seven guys in their starting nine with an OPS+ over 100 and, in many cases, way over 100.
The only two guys who are below average are Neil Walker, who is filling in for the injured Greg Bird and has come up with more than a couple huge clutch hits already this season, and Brett Gardner, the leadoff hitter.
Gardner is a clubhouse leader and a guy Aaron Boone ought to have a lot of confidence in but you have to wonder how much the lineup could actually improve if he was dropped from leadoff to eighth or ninth. There’s also a very real possibility he gets hot and finishes the season around his career mark, which is exactly average.
New York lost a slugfest to Texas on Wednesday night but gets Thursday off to travel and recover from losing two of three to one of the American League’s weaker teams.

Free Los Angeles Angels vs. New York Yankees MLB Prediction: New York.
Los Angeles is consistently overpriced and while New York is no longer a bargain anywhere, it should handle its business back at home with its ace on the hill.
