A Little Separation

With the Angels 3-1 win over the Blue Jays (in Toronto, no less) and the A's 3-2 loss to the Rays, the Halos have opened up a nice little three game lead in the division. It looks right now like the A's will be the only threat to the Angels taking their second straight AL West title and fourth in five seasons.

The Angels had a nice series against the Dodgers, taking two of three this past weekend, and after a real rough stretch, have won three of their last four games. The offense is still sputtering a bit, but the starting pitching has been great, and has been responsible for much of the team's recent success.

A win in Toronto is always nice, as the Jays have owned us in their park for what seems like forever. Let's just see if we can't win a series North of the border for once and put some more distance between us and Oakland.
