The Difference Between The Los Angeles Angels Of Anaheim & The New York Yankees Of Bronx This Season
When the Angels needed help this season, they called up super-prospect Mike Trout from their farm system. When the Yankees needed help this season, they called up Jayson Nix and Dewayne Wise.
Seriously, the Angels started this year 18-25; but, since then, they have won 8 games in a row (to date) and have changed the direction of their season.
It would be nice to see the Yankees run off a long and impressive winning streak too. But, I don’t know if that can happen with their starting rotation. There’s just way too much inconsistency there.
In fact, this Yankees season is starting to look a lot like their 2008 season – sans the ability to deflect attention from their level of play via the buzz around their Stadium closing.
