The Angels are certainly making it exciting down the stretch. This is the last of their series against Oakland before a huge one against Texas over the weekend.
Oakland has the worst record in the American League and I am not expecting much from them today.
Early on this team was pretty unlucky but it did not take long for that to turn into just poor play, especially after some trades reduced the amount of reliable performers for Oakland.
The A’s have won just one of their last 10 games and pretty much anytime Sonny Gray isn’t on the mound it is hard to expect much. The lineup up is littered with players that don’t really strike much fear in pitchers, though it is encouraging that Josh Reddick is at least relevant again.
Back in the day I have to admit I was a Barry Zito fan.
Though never the most dominant pitcher in the Majors he was effective and a big time winner early in his career. He gets a bad rap for his years in San Francisco where it was evident that he had lost something. It happens.
It was surprising that he has resurfaced in Oakland given that he doesn’t need the money. So far the results have not been good but maybe he has a few good curve balls left in his left arm.
Los Angeles Angels
The Angels are red hot right now. They have won seven in a row and slipped past Houston last night into the second American League Wild Card spot. They also have their sights on the division as the Rangers come to town after Oakland.
I am still not sure how they are doing it though. Mike Trout and Albert Pujols are supplying big time power but beyond that nobody really stands out.
That assessment applies to the pitching staff too.
Wednesday starter Garrett Richards is good but his numbers pale in comparison to last year’s breakout season. When he is on he can dominate though.
Richards is 1-1 against Oakland this season. He has not faced the A’s since June, when they were a much more competitive team.
